What I Got at the Sephora VIB Sale

Friday, April 22, 2016

I'm semi-ashamed to admit that I became a Sephora VIB last year. The good part is that I can ride on that status for the next year, but a scary part is that now I'll have access to the semi-annual sales at Sephora. So since they were offering 15% off everything a few weeks ago, I decided to stock up on some old favorites. I ordered online and got a few really great samples as well.


I got a good sized sample of the new Tarte "Tarteist" lash paint mascara. I love mascaras with thin, spiky brushes so hopefully this will work really well!


This should come as no surprise. I was running super low on Benefit Dallas so I took the opportunity to stock up! This is the best bronzer/blush color for light to medium skin tones. 

Benefit Rollerlash is one of my favorite mascaras! It actually does curl your lashes really well and washes over super easily with soap and water, which I love!



This was the other sample I got, a cute little Laura Mercier lip gloss in the color "bare baby." It's a very pale pink but should work well for everyday or over a lipstick.



Not gonna lie, I kind of hate having to buy brow products, but I decided to grab another Anastasia Brow Wiz since I know at some point I'll run out. Nothing exciting, but always necessary! 





Did you get anything good at the Sephora sale?

I'm Back! + Recent Favorites

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

As you can tell, I took a bit of a blog hiatus over the last few months but now I'm back! I've had a lot of life changes recently: got laid off from a job, found a new job, moved to a new apartment, traveled to a few different cities, etc., and with all of that there seemed to be no time for keeping up with this blog. I do still love sharing my favorite styles, beauty products, TV shows, books, movies and recipes so I'm hoping to be able to get back to a semi-regular schedule of posting! 


With that said, here are some of my recent favorites!



TV show: 
Dexter
We just finished watching the entire 8 seasons of Dexter! I wasn't sure if I'd like this show but I got hooked after a few episodes and have to say, it's now one of my all time favorite shows. 



Podcast: 
I've been walking almost every day to my new job and on the way I always listen to podcasts. If you like celebrity gossip and crazy family stories, you'll like this one with comedian Heather McDonald, who used to write on the Chelsea Lately show.



Bag:
Just ordered this tote bag! If you order direct from MZ Wallace you can get 15% off your first order and free shipping. It's a super lightweight, flexible tote and even fits a laptop!


Gadget:
I won this in a raffle at an event I went to in San Francisco. I never would've bought one myself, but I do really love it so far! It's great to be able to track my steps and try to get to 10,000 each day!



Beauty product:
I actually bought this at my hair salon and it's a great product for the spring and summer. I dust some all over my face and it gives a really nice glow.





Have a great week everyone!
