Mail Call!!

It’s been so long since I’ve been on to post! I am super exited to show you everything that I have planned to show you this holiday season. I’ve been honing my skills in the makeup department, so I can bring all of you better content!So I thought I’d start off the season with a Mail Call!! I received multiple boxes, and  (Spoiler alert) They are all makeup and clothes. So let’s get down to what we all know you came here for….

 

I won’t be providing links for all this because 1. you’re going to see them in later posts with links and 2.The entire post would end up including over 60 links… and I know you don’t want to click that many links.

My wonderfully large Ulta haul. It is mostly makeup, but there are a few nail and hair products in there. I’m going to be honest with you guys, I didn’t think about where I was going to fit anything until I had taken all these pictures. Then I complained about having too much stuff because my first world problem was super dire.

Another Babble blurb:: can we just take a moment to appreciate how I’ve gotten a little better with my picture taking. I even bough a furry white pillow to use asa backdrop for tiny things ( Sadly enough that was my entire motivation to buy this pillow, I’m not joking guys, I didn’t want to pay for a white rug).

So to wrap things up, I will be telling you a little more about upcoming posts all the while, still being annoyingly vague. There’s going to be lots of makeup looks and I am excited to say I will also be incorporating the clothes and accessories I wear into posts ( Just so long as my husband takes the photos the way I like 😛 ). So stay tuned and get ready for some quirky goodness in your holiday season.

 

Happy Holidays!

What’s In My Bag!

I have been seeing Videos and posts like this everywhere! So, I thought I’d join in on the fun! Plus, it’s an excuse to show everyone my newest bag that I bought for spring!

KODAK Digital Still Camera

 

Journal: I always have a journal on me ( I one day hope to have my short stories published) in case I find a spontaneous source of inspiration. I use small 80 pg. journals, so there is always a new one in my purse. The one shown is from a 3 pack for Barnes and Nobles spring collection. I love floral print for spring, so I couldn’t help myself

Pen: I adore the set of pens that this one came in. It’s from the Ban.do sweet heart set and I snagged these from Barnes and Noble shortly after Valentines Day.

Clif Crunch Bar: These are my favorite granola bars and are really handy for a snack. I’ve been at my new job for almost a month and they have yet to see me eat anything aside from these granola bars. And for anyone who is Vegan or just doesn’t eat dairy, the White chocolate pieces in this bar are made from soy 🙂

Peanuts Moleskin Planner: Being a wife and mother of two, I am constantly jotting down appointments and to do lists. This thing keeps me sane ( plus, it’s super duper cute).

Sunglasses: I’ve been wearing this pair of sunglasses for almost four years now. They are huge, and I adore them. They are always in my purse no matter which one I am carrying.

Wallet: I don’t like big wallets. This one is perfect for me. It’s slim and fits even in my smaller purses. It has a place for everything, and it’s in one of my favorite colors ( If you wanna know about the zipper pull it’s a chibi Teepo and Elise from the game tales of Xilia. I got it for Christmas).

Makeup Bag: I hate the idea of anything spilling on the adorable lining of my bags, so I carry those items in my cute January Ipsy bag to hold them all

Keys: ( Held in Makeup Bag)  I have a toddler who wants to be just like mommy. As cute as that sounds, it also means that I need to lock my makeup case after I’m done using its, and since I seem to lose everything I put them in the one place I never go anywhere without: my purse.

Mirror: Nothing really to say about this, It’s just your run of the mill Compact mirror for Ulta.

Chapstick: (Kept in makeup bag) I never lose my chapstick so I buy my favorite brand every time. Burts Bees is the best Chapstick and I’m loving the vanilla Bean one I have now.

Hand Sanitizer: ( Kept in makeup bag) I use a lot of hand sanitizer ( I finish off 3 a month) and I hate the smell of original germ – x, so I stock up on sanitizer from Bath and Body Works when there’s a good sale and I have a coupon to double up with. Right now I’m working on my cherry champagne toast and I love it.

Hand Cream: ( Kept in makeup bag) As you can clearly see, my poor Tree hut organics hand cream is on it’s last leg and I am squeezing every last drop out of it. I do have a udderly smooth hand cream on my bedside table, so I’ll probably be rotating that in until I finally drive across town for another one.

Lipstick: ( Kept in makeup bag) I like to keep whatever lipstick I’m wearing in my makeup bag just in case. Lately my colour pop matte lipstick in creeper ( shown above) has made many appearances in the makeup bag ( not like I’ve actually every used it for touch ups, the lipstick lasts all day).

Gum: I drink an obscene amount of coffee and without gum I would most likely offend people with my coffee breath ( If anyone tells you coffee breath isn’t that bad, they are liars… It’s horrendous ).

Phone: I know I know, I don’t gasp! have an I phone or a Samsung galaxy! I don’t really want one either. I’m happy with my Alcatel Astro Pop. And I can bet money that All the apps run the same, and my calls sound just as clear. No knock on people who did shell out hundreds for their phone,  I just don’t want to spend that much money on something that I let my 2 year old play baby games on ( Go ahead internet, judge me. No I phone and I let my toddler play with my phone. Worst mom award goes to….).

Epi Pen: Fun fact about me, I have a shellfish and mollusk allergy. I’ve never had either ( shrimp, crab, lobster, crawdads, clams, scallops) I was diagnosed through a routine allergy test as a child, and honestly walking by the seafood counter, don’t think I’m missing much. I can have fish though.

If you were hoping for something crazy, Sorry to disappoint. I am one of those boring people whos purse isn’t a black hole, but it is another look into my life ( and a look at the cute purse. I know I said it was cute already but I’m in the honeymoon purse face so I won’t shut up about it anytime soon).

What do you keep in your purse?

Until Next Time

March 18th Haul

Hello Hello,

Like I said before in my March glambag post I’ve been very busy, and I’m squeezing these posts out all at once while the husband and babies are fast asleep. So, we’ve been doing some shopping lately, and of course I bought some beauty relate items! I went to Walmart, Sallys, and Ulta and scored some pretty good stuff, so I thought I’d share with you guys.

 

sallys

 

 

First off is Sally’s. Didn’t get a whole lot from there, but normally I never go in to browse, I go in just to get what I need. I got some Micro Tweeze wax, a rat tail comb, a  larger rat tail comb with wide spacing ( I bought them mostly for parting my hair), and some BTZ noodle hair curl cream.

walmart

 

 

Walmart: I was in need pf mostly some more brushes. I got 2 angles eyeliner brush and one of the bent eyeliner brushes ( I’m expecting a package soon that I’l be using all those for, so stay tuned for that). I also got two things I had never bought before: blending sponges and setting powder. after using both products I am in love! the powder feels better on my face than the spray and my makeup has never looked smoother. Super happy i picked both of these up.

ulta

 

When I went into Ulta I promised my husband I would only pick from the clearance. That din’t stop me from finding some great stuff. I found 2 Splat! washable hair colors in Pink and purple. I also snagged some yes to grapefruit under eye cream for dark circles ( it works really good, if anyone wants to know). My favorite find from here ( and for the entire haul) has to be the pacifica dreamy cover bare faced serum foundation. it was on sale for $8.95 ( $17 on their website) and It is the greatest foundation I’ve every used. It’s a light breathable coverage, a little goes a long way, and it is the best match I’ve ever found for my skin hands down ( It adjusts to your skin tone!).

What have you guys been finding lately?

Until Next Time
