I painted my nails a lot this past month. I tried to change them every few days because I have so much nail polish I bought from April-June that I haven’t tried yet.

I’ve been collecting pictures of stuff I’ve hauled over the course of the past few weeks. I actually got a lot of this with coupons and sales so I’m super excited about that! First of all, as you know I’ve recently joined the Iphone train so I’ve made some ebay orders for covers. I think I bought 5 cases in total since I got my phone. They’ve been arriving every couple of days so I’ve snapped shots a few.
I gave this mint one to my sister but I love the rubberized feeling of it so I will probably order another one.
This is the one I’m currently using.
That little bow over the earphone jack is called a plug and it’s to protect dust from getting inside the headphone jack.
I’ve also been trying to diy some shorts so I’ve ordered a lot of studs in different sizes.
These are 8mm and they’re the only ones I’ve received so far. I got them off etsy but I’ve since learned that ebay is way cheaper.
I also picked up a few random things from Target.
I don’t know how I went for so long without a staple remover. My nails thank me.
I also got this cute little notebook to replace my old moleskin. I looked for ages for one without lines but I’ve given up and decided to go with this one.
It’s actually the perfect size, if only it didn’t have lines and the pages were thicker.
Sonia Kashuk’s summer stuff was on sale so I bought these two things with some coupons so they were super inexpensive.
I’ve been eyeing these brushes for a long time but didn’t pick them up because I have another old Sonia Kashuk brush set that have really hard bristles. Luckily these are a lot softer and better. I’m really glad I got this set because they’re all different brushes from what I already have.
I also used a coupon to get this beautiful brush.
It’s so different from my other brushes. It has a mix of plastic and boar bristles and it seems to smooth out hair as you brush it.
I also picked up some random stuff at the mall. First is a sweater that says drama queen.
I got some hair ties.
A cute bracelet in a peachy pastel color.
And then I dropped by sephora to return something and got a sample and a set using 500 points.
I don’t like this moisturizer so far. It’s very fragrant.
I’ve tried this serum and moisturizer once but it’s an odd thick gel that’s a dark red color. It feels so odd to rub on my face. I don’t know how I feel about it.
I also picked up some lovely polishes again with an awesome target coupon that printed for me.
First, Mojito Madness:
It’s lighter in the bottle than on the nails. On the nails it’s not as bright but still very cute.
Next, Bikini so Teeny:
It’s like a periwinkle blue. It’s very cute and definitely has a purple undertone.
Next, I got one of the new maybelline ones in Fierce N Tangy:
I’ve been looking for an opaque yellow for so long and this one is just perfectly bright and opaque.
Next I have To Buy or Not to Buy
Sorry for the unclean swatch, I did these right after getting home. This color is one of my favorites! It’s a super light lilac purple.
Next I got Charming by Revlon.
I was trying to decide between this one and lilacism but I already got two essie ones at the time so I went with this one.
And lastly I got Play Date.
It’s a true purple but not too dark and not too light.
And lastly, I picked up this cute oversized clutch bag from the thrift store!
It’s perfect for summer!
That’s it for my haul this time around.
