Haul For The Week Of July 29-Aug 4

Hey everyone..

I know I said I don't do too much hauling.. and I didn't really plan to this week.. But I did pick up some polish and some items.. so I figured I'd just toss them all together. I'm not doing a great job of not making myself look like a shopaholic.. I will remedy that.. I think? Sigh.

I went to Centre Mall on Wednesday evening.. Partially to kill time, partially to get some hair colour, and mostly just to "shop" - again, to kill time. I stopped in at Bath and Body Works and Target.

The Bath and Body Works store opened.. last week.. or 2 weeks ago now? I don't really know. I didn't go when it first opened - apparently the line-up was horrendous. When I stopped in on Wednesday, it was quiet, I quickly grabbed what I wanted, and got out of there.


Ok, I know what you all must be thinking.. Pumpkin scents, Dee?! It is "summer"! Yeah, well, I could happily live in a house infested with the aroma of pumpkin all. year. long. I enjoy it that much. I knew that the pumpkin scents had been released.. and I knew I needed 'Pumpkin Cupcake', and then I'd figure out the other candle to get once in the store. I took a whiff of 'Pumpkin Caramel Latte' and was sold. Easy and quick transaction.

Now, Target opened a couple of weeks ago too.. I have been there 3 times now.. It was so nice on Wednesday there - it was quiet and I actually got to just peruse through the store. I didn't end up buying too many items.. which is probably a good thing. Basically I was familiarizing myself with the store and its products. I felt the need to do that. I have no idea why.


I bought a super comfy pair of pajama capris (the leopard bad-boys there), L'Oreal The Sparklicious nail polish, Rimmel Apocalips in 102 Nova (I nearly sobbed when I saw these available - I have listened/watched them being raved about on youtube for months now) *Side note: I went back on Thursday evening with my sister and bought Stellar for me, and a red for her (Big Bang, I think?)*, Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum (I am out of Moroccan Oil and figured I'd try something different for a bit), and some sweet galaxy leggings!

Thursday.. I bought some books during my lunch break.. (I bought three), then I came home to naaaaail maaaaail!



Sarah over at Chalkboard Nails had a post a couple weeks back using Licorice Allsorts - and I knew immediately that I needed it. Huge licorice allsorts fan - and this polish perfectly sums up what comes along in that bag of awesomeness. BUT.. Since Candy Lacquer was a new-to-me-brand, I decided to snap up another polish - and I decided on Citrus Smoothie. Cannot wait to test out these gems!

Thursday evening.. I bought a pair of shoes.. They were $12.49!

These are the shoes via the website - I am not sure how much longer they will be around.. I really wanted the black pair - I saw them awhile back - then my sister told me they were massively on sale. We went to the store closest to us, and they had red and blue. I settled on the red pair. I could order the black pair online.. but I'm good with these gems. I love the little skulls on them!!

Friday I was fairly well behaved.. I spent the day out and about with my siblings..

Saturday.. Ohhh Saturday. I spent my morning/a touch in to the afternoon getting highlights put in my hair (which I love), then I bought some shampoos.. and.. I bought an eyeshadow palette. Do I need anymore makeup, particularly eyeshadow? No. But. I have been lusting after this palette for many, many days now.. and decided to get myself one more "treat", then calm down for a bit.

It is the Too Faced Pretty Rebel palette.. Go look at it HERE.. and faint over the swatches HERE

That is it.. I'm done.. For this week. Let's hope that next week is muchos quieter as far as spending goes.

See you all again soon!!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!
