Haul, Broken & All – Beauty & Extras

I did do a bit of beauty damage as well but again, a lot of this was with coupons or on sale or both. I stopped by Ulta and picked up some polishes on sale.
Photobucket

First is my favorite of the set, Neo whimsical from Essie.
Photobucket
This is the most beautiful muted grey purple pink color I’ve ever seen.

Next is Revlon’s Sheer Seafoam.
Photobucket
I should’ve realized from the name that it would be completely sheer but it’s so beautiful in the bottle that I didn’t even think about buying it until I got home and swatched it. It’s disappointing because if it wasn’t sheer it would be such a cute summer color!

Next I got this cute fall green color in Don’t Mess With OPI.
Photobucket
It’s quite a nice fall green color and the formula is pretty good. I haven’t worn it besides swatching yet.

Then I picked up this red from Essie in Red Nouveau.
Photobucket
It’s like a tomato red. I don’t have too many reds so I decided to add this to my collection.

I got this Revlon one in Blue Lagoon.
Photobucket
I’ve been hunting for light blues all summer and have for the most part been disappointed with the formulas. This one had a pretty chunky formula as well so I don’t know what’s up with these light blues but I’m still hunting.

Lastly from that set, I picked up this pop beauty one in mint magic.
Photobucket
This one is crazy bright! I have plenty of mint polishes but this one is definitely different because it’s so bright as opposed to being a muted or light mint color. The formula though is really bad. It’s gunky and sticky but I’m willing to deal with it because I love the color so much!

I also picked up these two but I returned the Loreal one on the right because it looks nothing like in the bottle.
Photobucket
I kept the Essie one in fiji because it’s such a cute light almost white pink color.

And then I found Essie A crewed interest on sale.
Photobucket

Lastly for nails I picked up these three Nabi ones from a boutique. They’re only $1 each!
Photobucket
The bright neon green and pink are so cute! I haven’t tried the blue yet but I will soon!

I also picked up a few lipsticks. First is this Tarina Tarantino one in Candy Jar.
Photobucket
It’s like this bright candy pink that’s almost reminiscent of an 80’s lipstick shade because it’s got some purple undertones.

I picked up another Nars Schiap because I lost my original one and I just couldn’t not have it so I picked up a replacement.
Photobucket

I got Mac’s Snob.
Photobucket
I’m so-so on this because it’s pretty unwearable on it’s own unless I’m going out at night and doing a crazy dark smokey eye. During the day it needs to be mixed with something else on top or under it.

I also ordered this Stila Lip Enamel in Giggle from ebay.
Photobucket
It’s crazy bright pink and I love it!

And then my sister came home from Japan and brought back this super cute baby pink lipstick for me!
Photobucket
It looks washed out here but in person it’s a true baby pink with coral undertones.

Moving along, I jumped on the bandwagon and picked up the new Revlon Whipped foundation but only because I got an awesome $2 coupon.
Photobucket
I got it in Natural tan and it’s pretty much a perfect match because I got so dark from pontooning. I actually like this much better than the normal revlon colorstay foundations because this looks the same and has the same staying power but this feels so much lighter and better on your skin and it doesn’t have that same super fragrant smell.

I picked up a sonial kashuk brush, again with some coupons.
Photobucket
This one is so unique. I have nothing like it. It’s supposed to be for contouring but I’m using it for highlighting and it works just fine.

I also picked up a bunch of random things from Target because I had some really good coupons last month that were going to expire.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
I’ve been wanting this cosmetic bag since forever because I love the red and purple stripes.

I also got these little organizer things from the dollar section at target to organize my chunky rings.
Photobucket

And some hair clippies.
Photobucket
I’m always losing these little guys.

I also picked up some really random stuff I thought I would share.

Photobucket
Photobucket
^these are my HG puffs because they’re sealed completely at the sides so no matter how soaked it gets, it doesn’t expand and come apart. It’s expensive though, $5 for 100.

I’m trying a different contact solution.
Photobucket
I usually use Target’s Generic one but last year when I bought new contacts my store gave me a sample of this Bio True one and I loved it so much because I remember it being so cool and crisp on my eyes but this bottle seems normal and almost the same as my Target one so I’m going back to Generic.

I’ve been buying a lot of studs online to diy shorts.
Photobucket
I’ve found that 10mms are too small and 12 is ok but I’m going to look for a size up.

I bought a car organizer that turns out to be too big for my trunk but’s ok because I plan to upgrade to SUV soon.
Photobucket

Since I’ve been doing my nails so much I got some polish remover and an eos balm.
Photobucket
I now remember why I stopped using EOS balms, they’re just inferior to my other balms. They only good thing about them is they’re cute.

I picked up this suit case from Marshalls.
Photobucket

I bought some tweezers from f21 to apply lashes.
Photobucket
I don’t like this, it feels really flimsy and it’s open too wide so holding them still while putting on lashes is really hard to do.

Picked up some goodies earlier from the Bath and body works sale.
Photobucket

I got a little makeup baggie from H&M in lime green zebra.
Photobucket
It’s the prefect size for my purse.

Picked up a beach towel.
Photobucket
It’s huge so I love it.

My little sister brought me this little blue headband from Japan.
Photobucket

And finally I picked up this doggie tray from Marshalls so I have a set at my house for my dog when she comes over.
Photobucket

And that’s it for my beauty and random stuff haul for July!

Haul, Broken Ban & All – Fashion & Jewelry

I was supposed to be on a shopping ban through mid July but after about two weeks I gave up. Also the number one motivation for my ban was because I was supposed to be saving up for a trip to Chicago but we decided not to go anymore so I just threw the ban out the window. So of course in my typical shopping fashion, here are my buys for the month of July. I had to break up the haul into two parts, fashion & beauty. First up is Fashion and Jewelry.

I picked up some tanks for my boyfriend for summer.
Photobucket

I picked up this lace type top from a local boutique
Photobucket
I’ve actually been looking for more of a white damask top but everytime I find one it’s a cropped style so I went with this one because it doesn’t quite look like lace so its still nice and summery.

I picked up a few tanks.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket

I’ve been really into cut out shoulders lately so I picked up four from Forever21 but the sheer ones were extremely inexpensive at $13.50 each!
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
I got the sheer ones in nude, white, and black.

I also picked up two dresses, both around $12 each.
Photobucket
Photobucket

I picked up two semi-sheer blouses from H&M in pink and leopard.
Photobucket
Photobucket

I also picked up this cute white top from a boutique.
Photobucket

I picked up some thrift store shorts for diy-ing.
Photobucket

I got a really good deal on shoes as well!
Photobucket
I got all of these plus another pair from Gap for under $13!

I also found my perfect pair of nude pumps!
Photobucket
I have been searching for years now for a good pair that didn’t have an ugly front platform but that didn’t look like a work pair either.

I found some sandals from Target.
Photobucket

Since it’s summer, I found some great deals on swimsuits as well.
Photobucket
This set is from Target.

Photobucket
These are all on sale from Old Navy.

That’s all for clothes and shoes. I did pick up a few accessories as well. First is this cute over the shoulder bag from Forever21.
Photobucket
I just love this piece because it’s so simple and so chic.

Some jewelry from F21.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket

And that’s it for the fashion part of the haul. It seems like a lot but I got almost all of it on sale or for really good prices!


Recent Purchases – 6/26/12 baby Hauls

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.
Photobucket
Photobucket
I gave this mint one to my sister but I love the rubberized feeling of it so I will probably order another one.
Photobucket
This is the one I’m currently using.
Photobucket
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.
Photobucket
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.
Photobucket
Photobucket
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.
Photobucket
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.
Photobucket
Photobucket
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.
Photobucket
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.
Photobucket

I got some hair ties.
Photobucket

A cute bracelet in a peachy pastel color.
Photobucket

And then I dropped by sephora to return something and got a sample and a set using 500 points.
Photobucket
I don’t like this moisturizer so far. It’s very fragrant.

Photobucket
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.
Photobucket

First, Mojito Madness:
Photobucket
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:
Photobucket
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:
Photobucket
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
Photobucket
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.
Photobucket
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.
Photobucket
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!
Photobucket
It’s perfect for summer!

That’s it for my haul this time around.


Recent Purchases – Bits and Bobs

I think it’s been a decent amount of time since my last haul and I’ve been slowly gathering things here and there. This is all spread up over May and some were purchased by my boyfriend.

First are some clothing and accessories. I got three pairs of shorts this month and a pair of jeans.
Photobucket
Photobucket
I got really good deals on these! The top two shorts were from AE and we got them at 40% off over Memorial day weekend. The bottom pair is a $12 pair from F21 and the jeans were purchased with a 35% off coupon!

I also picked up a leopard print button down for $13 and a cute jean shirt that I’ve been wanting.
Photobucket
Photobucket

And then I picked up some bandeaus from AE at 40% off to go under tops and tanks with big arm holes.
Photobucket

I also picked up two bright purses.
Photobucket
I sat on this blue one for a while, since March I think. I never bought it because suede material always scares me because it’s hard to clean but I love the structure and color and I finally gave in!
Photobucket
This neon pink one was a love at first sight. I love how its a play on the classic quilted shape but the material makes it very causal. I’m not quite sure what material this is, it feels like a windbreaker type of fabric if that makes sense.

I also picked up this cute little wallet from Target.
Photobucket
I’ve been lazy lately and I’ve only been using card holders or wristlets but now I want to get back into wallets again so I got this one because my old one is from 2 years ago.

And then I only picked up one piece of jewelry.
Photobucket
I just feel like on my last haul I picked up all the jewelry pieces that I wanted and haven’t been able to find anything I liked more since but this necklace is something I’ve been looking for and I really like that one blingy accent ring. I do wish the sizes didn’t get bigger at the bottom but I compromised because it was only $7.

I also hauled a bit of makeup this month.
Photobucket

First I picked up this Dior Blush that I could not get out of my mind.
Photobucket
Photobucket
In the pan it’s the most beautiful pink and right up my alley but apparently it adjusts to you ph and moistures levels so the color looks different on everyone and on me it looks red which I don’t like. I’m still deciding on this one because I love it but I can’t use it if it continues to look red on me. My skin is not light or dark enough to pull off red blush.

I also picked up a blush from the new Hey Sailor Collection.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
It is the only thing I got from that collection. I wanted more because I like the limited edition packaging but I’m not really interested in any of the stuff from that collection, only the blushes and bronzers. I wanted a lipstick so badly but of the four released, I only liked the red and orange and I dont need another red or orange. I bought this blush because I’m currently really into very light blushes right now and this one is a really pretty flush on my skin. I didn’t get any bronzers because I was just overwhelmed at how many there were.

I also picked up a NARS eyeshadow duo in Charade.
Photobucket
I really love the purple-taupe color and the soft brown rose color. They’re perfect for everyday wear and I plan to pick up some more duos when I go back.

I also picked up a MUFE rouge artist natural lipstick in 41.
Photobucket
It looks quite bright in the picture but on the lips it’s softer and more muted. These lipsticks are super creamy and comfortable on the lips. I really like the formula so I plan on picking up a few more. I’ve already found a light pink and a hot pink one that I want.

This past month I also dropped by the CCO and picked up a few things. These are not all CCO discounted stuff. I got two creamsheens.
Photobucket

Five lipglasses.
Photobucket
Photobucket
I really love pink lemonade. It’s a coraly orange color that looks really cute for summer.

And then I picked up three lipsticks.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
I am slowly, but surely building my Mac lipstick collection.

From Target I picked a few beauty and misc. items. I got two brushes, an elf powder brush that I love for foundation and powder products and a Sonia kashuk synthetic buffing brush that I used a coupon for.
Photobucket
Photobucket
The elf one is always a no fail for me and I use it for so many purposes that I picked up another. I probably have 5-6 of them. The Sonia Kashuk one is great for foundation so far. It’s very soft and dense.

I also picked up my first waterproof mascara in a long time.
Photobucket
It’s probably been years since I’ve bought one but lately my lashes have really been bothering me the way one side stays up and one doesn’t so I thought I’d try to see if waterproof will help the droopy side 🙂 So far, I don’t like the way it applies as much as the regular one. I feel like it’s not as volumnizing as the normal one.

Also, Target now has those great BOGOFree deals with some of the salon/ higher end hair products so I picked up this hair mask that I’ve been meaning to try.
Photobucket
I love the smell of it but I’ve only used it once so far so I can’t much say how it performs yet.

And finally I picked up some misc. stuff from Target. I just love Target.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket

Bonus: I bought scissors!
Photobucket

And that is all for my very long long haul!


Recent Purchases 5/9/12 Biggest Haul of Them All – PART II Fashion

I didn’t pick up a lot of clothes, mostly bracelets so I’ll start with those. I went bracelet crazy I don’t know why. Maybe because it’s summer and I’m really into stacking lately or because it’s so inexpensive to get a lot of? They’re all from F21 and all relatively inexpensive.

First I picked up these two white and blue pyramid stretchy bracelets.
Photobucket
Photobucket

And then I got this gold chain with black in the center.
Photobucket

And a silver spiked pyramid set.
Photobucket

I also picked up this necklace which I actually broke apart into two bracelets.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Each chain unhooks really easily so it was simple to get two bracelets out of one necklace.

And here is a quick stack of what I had in mind when I bought that necklace.
Photobucket

I also picked up this tribal bangle because I love the colors.
Photobucket

And then I picked up this thin silver one that actually looks really great stacked with gold pieces.
Photobucket

And then I picked up a hexagon shaped one which I just thought was really fun.
Photobucket

I also picked up this alternating spiked one.
Photobucket

And this pink one with a tassle.
Photobucket

I also found this sideways cross one that I’ve been looking for forever.
Photobucket
I’m still debating whether or not I’ll keep the blue beads on there.

For other jewelery I picked up this set of hoops and earrings from CR.
Photobucket

And then I got this ring set but I mostly just wanted the chain one in the center.
Photobucket

For necklaces, I picked up this really plain cute one from F21. It just has a little curve at the bottom and it was like $3 I think.
Photobucket

And then my boyfriend picked up these two collar necklaces for me.
Photobucket

I did get a few clothing items as well. I got this plain oatmeal colored tank top from F21.
Photobucket
It’s got a curved bottom hem and a little pocket on the left breast.

Then I got this crocheted type tank.
Photobucket

I also picked up this plain blue tank to go under tops.
Photobucket

I got this high low plain black dress.
Photobucket

A pair of really cute high waisted type shorts.
Photobucket

A neon pink skirt.
Photobucket

An oatmeal colored zip up hoodie from H&M.
Photobucket

Bonus buy, an awesome conair paddle brush.
Photobucket

And that is it for my haul this time around. I’m planning a trip so I will probably be more conservative with my shopping ways for a while.


Recent Purchases 5/9/12 Biggest Haul of Them All – PART I Beauty

Fair Warning: Picture Heavy. This will be my last major Haul I think. I’m splitting this up into two parts because there are too many shots. This first part is all things beauty related. I know I said I would stop with the nail polishes but I keep finding myself getting really good deals or returning stuff and needing to buy something else to exchange it with. So let’s begin with some polishes. I heard about this new NYC matte top coat so I picked it up to try against my Essie one.
Photobucket
They work exactly the same so if you want a matte top coat, I say go for this one. I think it’s around $1.75 and the Essie is around $8-$10.

I also got a coupon that was expiring so I picked up a Rimmel top coat as well.
Photobucket
This is just a normal clear top coat but I picked this one up because I really like the Rimmel brushes. They’re wide and easy to use and quick.

I also picked up four polishes from Walgreens when the Sinful colors were on sale for $1 a few weeks ago. First I picked up this pearly white in Tokyo Pearl
Photobucket
It’s very pretty and I actually plan to layer it over a plain white coat of polish to make it less stark.

I also picked up this one in Blue by You.
Photobucket
It’s a blue with green shimmer. It just looked so interesting in the bottle and I really like it.

I also picked up this green one in Irish Green.
Photobucket
I thought it’d be a more opaque green but I actually like that it’s a neon green sort of color.

And then I picked up my very first crackle polish to create a nail look I found on Pinterest.
Photobucket
I’ve learned that thin uneven quick swipes look better and crackle better than full sweeps.

Continuing on with the nail polish I returned some things from Ulta that did not work for me and got some goodies. The China Glaze, Orly and Zoya are currently on sale for buy 2 get 1 so I picked up a few and combined it with my return and coupon and basically paid the price of one for a lot of them. First, I got three Orly’s. I picked up this one in Fancy Fushia.
Photobucket
It’s a bit more purple than the picture is depicting and it’s also brighter.

I also got bright purple in Frolic.
Photobucket

My last Orly one is a bright blue in Frisky.
Photobucket

And then I picked up this China Glaze one in Shocking Pink.
Photobucket

I also picked up two other polishes and a base coat. I picked up a sally Hansen one in Wet Cement.
Photobucket

And an Essie that I’ve been wanting forever in Shine of the Times.
Photobucket

And then Using another coupon I picked up Sally Hansen smoothing base coat.
Photobucket

I also stopped by Target and did some crafty coupon combining to get some Revlon polishes. I got a grey blue in Chic.
Photobucket

A dark teal in Midnight.
Photobucket

And a lilac pink in Flirt.
Photobucket

And then I used a maybelline coupon and got a color tattoo in Bad to the Bronze.
Photobucket
I love this. It’s very similar to NYX jumbo stick in Iced mocha. It’s actually more brown/grey tone than an actual bronzey gold tone.

I also did some damage at mac and picked up a few things with the help of my boyfriend.
Photobucket

First I picked up a lipglass from the Chen Man collection in Force of Love.
Photobucket
It’s a bright pink with sparkles in it. Usuallly I don’t like lipglasses because they’re sticky but they’re the only things with color in them so I’m reconsidering my opinion and trying it out. I think it made my lips react though so I’m letting my lips get back to normal and then I’ll try it again to see what happens.

And then I picked up two blushes, one in Melba and one in Well Dressed.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Melba is just a neutral brown tone color that actually shows up a bit red on my cheeks.

Photobucket
Photobucket
Well Dressed is a light pearly pink.

I also picked up a fluid line because my little stila one was dry.
Photobucket

And then I picked up four lipsticks. First, is creme cup.
Photobucket
It’s a slightly muavey light pink.

I also got Impassioned which is a bright red pink.
Photobucket

And then I got Chatterbox which is more of a hot pink.
Photobucket

And then lastly, I picked up Ruby Woo.
Photobucket
I still want Russian Red and Lady Danger.

Lastly, I picked up a new toner. I had actually finished my toner two days before I was able to pick one up. After much debate I went with this Shiseido one because of my oily skin.
Photobucket
I almost went with the amore pacific one but that was twice the price and it smelled strong. The smell was very nice but it did not leave my skin. I still might invest in that one in the future for toning at night because I currently use toners mostly to really clean my skin so that my moisturizer will sit on a clean face. The amore pacific one is more of a prepping toner to prep it for serums.

That is it for my beauty haul. I don’t think I will pick up any more beauty things for a while except maybe a few more lipsticks and some skincare.


Recent Purchases – It get’s worse

I know I’ve been hauling like crazy but it just got worse. I’ve been doing so much crazy spring shopping and I’m glad to say I think I’ll be done with crazy hauling after April. I just needed to Spring Shop so badly so I did major damage on this one. I’ll do beauty first because my nail polish hauling has not stopped.

As you know, Sally’s Beauty supply is running their b2go free all month long so everytime I’m near one I have this crazy urge to go look. So of course, I got a few more polishes. First, I got this beautiful rose gold color by Orly.
Photobucket
It doesn’t have quite the flaky metallic look as the other silver polish I got but it looks similar in the bottle and it is definitely a true rose gold color so if you’re looking for rose gold, this is a good one.

Next I picked up this Black shimmery color from the China Glaze Hunger Games collection because I heard that it was a matte color.
Photobucket
It’s crazy beautiful! It’s more of a charcoal and the matte finish over the shimmer is just so different and awesome!

And then I picked up a color from the new China Glaze Prismatic collection in Liquid Crystal.
Photobucket
As you can see, on the nail its not as dark as in the bottle. I’d like it to be a little dark so it has a galaxy type look but I can just sponge on color under. That swatch is about 3 layers.

This week sinful colors are on sale at Walgreens for $1 so of course I stocked up a little. First I got this muted pinky neutral shade in soulmate.
Photobucket
I haven’t tried these on yet so I don’t have a nail swatch.

I also picked up another neon yellow color because my glow in the dark F21 one is not quite opaque enough so I thought I’d get this to layer under.
Photobucket

And then I got a neon hot pink.
Photobucket
I’m actually wearing this right now and it’s really cute.

Then I picked up a bright orange.
Photobucket

And a basic darker purple.

I also picked up a plain white and black.
Photobucket
Photobucket

And the last sinful colors I got was this light blue in Cinderella.
Photobucket

Milani is also on sale this week at kmart for bogo50% off so I picked up two of the chunky glitter ones.
Photobucket
Photobucket
I still want the pink one and maybe the purple.

And then I stopped by Ulta to get a ridge filling base for my nails since they’re not smooth.
Photobucket
I’ve used it once and I feel like it makes my color application worse. It seems like instead of filling in ridges, it makes ridges and my polish goes on super streaky. I don’t know if I’ll be keeping this yet, I want to try it one more time with a different polish brand and color.

Last weekend I went to the CCO with my sisters and picked up a few MAC things. I got a hot pink creamsheen lipgloss.
Photobucket

Then I picked up one of the sets from last year’s holiday collection.
Photobucket
I mostly got it because I love the white tube lipstick and it was a color I don’t have. I also am currently collection creamsheen lipglosses so that nude is a nice addition.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket

And last of the beauty related stuff, I picked up lotion and some containers to spread it.
Photobucket
I actually tried that lotion because of a friend and now I’m in love with it! It smells so good, not fruity, not musky, not citrisy. It’s hard to discribe, it’s not a fresh scent either. It might be closer to a floral but seriously, go to your local target and take a sniff and you’ll be in love too!

That’s all I picked up for cosmetics but the month isn’t over yet so I might find myself in another Sally’s before this weekend comes to an end. I also did some shopping at F21 and H&M and picked up a few things.

Now onto accessories. I’ve been loving bracelets lately so I picked up a few here and there. First, I’ve been needing a watch but I actually don’t like watches that much. They’re bulky and I don’t really use them for their purpose since I use my phone for time so I decided I wasn’t going to invest in one (yet.) So I went to Walmart to look for a cheapie $20 gold tone watch to stack and look what I found, something even better!
Photobucket
A $7 stacking piece! It’s not the most beautiful thing on earth but when it’s stacked, it blends in beautifully. I still might invest in a better one in the future because this one is actually too big on my wrist and I want one with a bigger face.

And then I picked up this basic gold necklace from F21.
Photobucket
I like that it actually hangs from a chain and doesn’t go around the whole neck because those don’t sit on my collar bone nicely.

I also picked up some bracelets from H&M.
Photobucket
Photobucket
I actually might get another one of these so I can wear them like matching cuffs.

Then I got this belt one and a rose gold one.
Photobucket
Photobucket

I also got some gold rings.
Photobucket

And then I picked up this orange one from Rue21.
Photobucket
I don’t actually like that store because I feel like the clothes are geared towards 13 year olds but every once in a while you find little things like this. And of course since it’s Rue21 it says sexy 🙂

I also got a pair of flats and a bucket bag!
Photobucket
Photobucket
I love the colors on this bag! And it’s large and roomy!

And then I picked up a leopard print scarf for about $8 just for adding a little extra omph to outfits.
Photobucket

That’s all I got for accessories, I did pick up some clothes as well. I got this bright aqua skirt from Charlotte Russe while at the outlet.
Photobucket
It’s big but I can make it smaller at the sides.

From Forever21 I got two thin cardigans and a cute little tribal top.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
I love how the colors look on the nude top.

From H&M I picked up a few things on my list of summer necessities. First I got a jean jacket.

Then I got two plain ts.

I also got this minty tank and red skirt which I think will look great together.

And that’s it for my haul this round. I think I need to make some sort of pact with myself not to shop in May because for the most part I’ve found most of my spring and summer wardrobe needs. I will get a few more pairs of shorts from Hollister and a pair of leather flip flops from there because those are my favorite of each kind. I also am still hunting for a hot pink button down, nude pumps, and suede aqua blue pumps. Wish me luck!
