All for Galifornia

Ever since I randomly stumbled upon the new blush by Benefit on an Australian website,”Galifornia” has been on the top of my list- because I knew it was one that I’d fall head over heels for. Galifornia is the absolute reason I splurged a bit today…

I went to Ulta, and I went to a corner store afterwards (mainly to pick up some mucinex for my mom who has a cold; keep away from sneezers people it’s cold / allergy season).

And yes, I did take these photos outside. 🙂 The best lighting is there, and today was a nice day anyway’s so psh if you judge me.

Onto the things at Ulta:

1. Soap and Glory ‘Clean on Me” shower gel.

2. Soap and Glory Super cat liquid liner pen (which slightly terrifies me, but less than the super cat fat liquid liner unless I was going for a thick liner look which I rarely do) in “jet black”. Still a hard-core dollywink eyeliner fan. 😉

3. Benefit Cosmetics “Galifornia” Blush. Fun spin on California, which I’m hoping / wishing to go to in June for VidCon. I’ve read some reviews on it that mention the golden overlay disappearing after 5 swipes and while that’s most likely true, I still felt the need to buy it. It looks like summer, it smells like summer, it simply reminds me of summer. Plus, Coralista my all time favorite blush ever to exist which always comes from Benefit reminds me a bit of this by glancing at it. Not entirely sure if it will resemble it all but either way I have a gut feeling I’m going to love it. ^_^

Onto the things at the corner store:

  1. Herbal Essences Body Envy shampoo
  2. Herbal Essences Body Envy Conditioner
  3. Revlon Eyelash Curler (my old one was soooo overused that I threw it out a month ago and haven’t used one since)
  4. Curad Bandaids just because I’ve always wanted to try these and what better a time to buy some when someone needs one and there are none in the house.

That is the mini look into what I bought today!

Hope you enjoyed reading, do you know of anything I should keep my eye out for make-up wise, hair wise, book wise, or all sorts of wise?

Love,

Nat 💖

 

 

What’s In My Bag?

 

This is my current handbag. I’ve had it for at least three years, and it has done me well to this day. I bought it at Nordstrom for $40-45 and before you can gasp at the amount I spent on it, I fell in love with it and it is still my staple bag to this day. Yes, I switch handbags around as everyone does, but without a doubt this is my favorite and still looks to  be in good shape.

Here’s what’s inside…

  1. Gloves
  2. A book- “Saint Anything” written by Sarah Dessen (her books are my absoulte favorite ever since I can remember).
  3. A water bottle (I carry around water 90% of the time)
  4. Superman Headphones
  5. My wallet (holds mints, little memories such as movie tickets,fortunes from fortune cookies, my license, and $10 at most)
  6. Movie tickets
  7. A Star Wars notebook I couldn’t help but buy
  8. A pink USB flash drive
  9. A mini Paris notebook
  10. A Carpe Diem bracelet- reminds me little moments matter and not to dwell on the future (or anything for that matter) too much
  11. A mini blue comb
  12. Tweezers
  13. Kate Moss Rimmel 107 lipstick
  14. Jack black lip balm in “natural mint”
  15. Bare minerals marvelous moxie lipgloss in “rebel”
  16. Revlon lip butter in “strawberry shortcake”–I’ve repurchased this for as long as I’ve owned my purse
  17. Mac lipstick in “pure zen”
  18. Versace bright crystal rollerball
  19. An array of pens and pencils
  20. A mini orange pencil I stole from a mini golf club on accident
  21. Neosporin tube
  22. A little Kleenex pack
  23. Mini orange sticky notes– I’m just now realizing how many “mini” things I own here
  24. Hand warmers–its chilly out!
  25. Peanut M&M’s–I love me some of these.

And that’s everything in my bag at the moment! Sorry there was nothing exciting like a dog. ❤

Let me know what you carry around, no really, these are my favorite types of tags. 🙂
