I can't believe it's already the end of January! Winter is ending, and I cannot wait for that! I'm sure you've all seen all the new spring arrivals in stores :) I was pretty bummed out yesterday because I went for an interview and didn't get chosen. I was just so darn nervous but looking forward to doing better on the next :) *postive zen* So what happens when this girl is down? She spends the day not doing any schoolwork, playing with the dog, catching up with her TV shows (Grey's Anatomy, Gossip Girl), paints her nails, and shops! Retail therapy makes me happy, despite what those experts say!
This is me and my boyfriend's family dog - Dontei. He's a pure french bulldog, isn't he sOOooo adorable?! He makes me happy, and he reminds me being carefree is bliss :)
And onto my haul of the day...
Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus - thanks sista! My sister gave me a gift card during Christmas, and I finally get to try this! Excited!
Mac Special Reserve Highlight Powder Rose Ole from Cham Pale Collection - I resisted for the longest time, but I wanted this ever since I saw the pre-launch swatches for it. And it was fate, that the store I went to today still had it in stock! It was meant to be. Seriously. :)
And all you iPhone users, get your free Sephora iPhone cover for free when you show them you have their Sephora app! Okay, I'll admit I'm probably not going to use it, but it was free and it's nice to have a back-up :D
Then I made a stop at Forever 21! I haven't been there for sooo long, I wasn't in the mood to shop for clothes so I headed to the accessories section and found this cute ring ($5.80) and coral earrings ($3.80 how can you beat these prices?!) - perfect for spring/summer :)
Lastly, I haven't painted my nails in a while and I bought these American Apparel Nail Lacquers a long time ago (3 for $18) and never had the chance to try them out. And boy, I'm impressed! These could definitely pass as one-coaters. I painted two coats of Peacock here in my nail swatch (note to self: paint over cuticles next time). They are also DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free. I find that they do take a bit longer to dry, and a base coat is a must. These babies stain your nails like no tomorrow. The colour selection there is also pretty amazing :) I also noticed Smith's Rosebud Salve in Original, Strawberry, and in the tubes at American Apparel. I know they are now available at Sephora as well, but just letting all you Canadians know of other locations ;)
Hope everyone is enjoying this lovely weekend! Thanks for reading!! xoxo
