Formula X Paint the Town

Happy Saturday!

I'm trying to decide whether or not I want to add the Formula X Paint the Town paint tin can to my Christmas Wish List. As if it's really a big decision... 

The price point is the same as last years, and it looks like their is only was of the same nail polishes as last years.
Need for Speed

This is the one from last year:












This year, instead of the chunky glitter, it's more of a subtle glitter, which I like more. 2013's set was a mixture of very bright neon colors where this year it's more toned down (which I like!)

Are you putting Formula X Paint the Town on your wish list?

The Body Shop Haul & Gift Ideas

Happy Thursday!

Guess what? Tomorrow's Friday! Haha, as if you didn't know. :)
A couple weeks ago when I was at the Philadelphia Premium Outlets The Body Shop had last year's Christmas items on sale with an additional 50% off the lowest ticket!

Check out the items I picked up. 

I got all 5 of the body butters for $12.50 and the 5 lip butters for $10!

Not to mention, how adorable is this packaging. I took out all the body butter's and put them in the bathroom. I'm currently using the Shea butter and I'm loving it! The container I've been using now has lasted me for almost 3 weeks now, and I use it every night. 

 
 I saved both of the packaging on these and plan on doing something crafty with them. 
I thought about make a wreath from the popsicle one.


I've also been testing out the lip butter and I must say I'm loving it. 

I thought I would share this because I think it's such a great deal and a good gift for friends who love The Body Shop. I also think it's great for testing out items that are more expensive. I never tried any of The Body Shop's products until now. I'm loving the Strawberry scent currently. I may end up purchasing it in the full size, but it'll take me a while to go through all the ones I have now. :)

The scent of the body butters really do last on your skin for a long time. Throughout the day I get wiffs of it here and there, which is nice to know it's lasting for more than just a hour! 

Have a great Thursday night!

Wedding Wednesday: Picture Announcement

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Today I have a picture to share that my fiance & I took while at the beach this summer. 
I found a picture on Pinterest that I completely copied and I do not take credit for at all. But I wanted to have it for myself. 

I may use it for our wedding announcement in the paper or may put it up on our website.

 

We were fortunate enough to know someone with a good camera and good editing skills to come up with this picture. 

I definitely encourage people to get ideas on Pinterest or photography websites to get inspired for their own engagement sessions or wedding pictures. It was a huge help for us when we were getting our pictures done. 

Have a great night!

Completely Random Haul

Happy Tuesday!

Literally when I say random, I mean random. 
Today I stopped at Joann Fabrics after work because I received a mailer with this Charlie Brown Christmas No Sew blanket. Do I need a no sew blanket? No. But in my defense it's Charlie Brown, how can you not want it?!

It's originally $27.99 but I had a coupon for 40% off I ended up getting it for around $17. Not bad. 

Last night we did some shopping at Wal-Mart. I picked up these items. 

I've heard good and bad things about this nail polish. I don't own any gel nail polishes nor do I own the kit, but I thought I would give this a try. I'm really testing it out for my mom. I'd like to get her a set because I know she likes gel nails. She's gotten them done before and she liked how long they lasted. I feel like this is easier for her than getting her a lamp, etc.  I'll report back.
This was on sale at Wal-Mart for $14.97
The name of the color set I got was Dig Fig 440


 I've used Acne Free for a couple of years now, but I'm pretty sure my skin is use to it by now and is no longer having an effect on my skin. I've been breaking out like crazy and I don't understand why (probably stress), and I wanted to try something new. This was an affordable option to try. $17.97


See? How completely random was that? I was too excited about my no sew blanket I had to make a post, but I couldn't just blog about how excited I was about it, how boring would that be!?

Have a great night!

Weekend Recap: Hobby Lobby, OOTD

Happy Monday!
Happy Weekend Recap! :)

My Fiance & I went home for the weekend again, but we had a full 2 days home which was nice. I spent a lot of time with my family and friends and it was well needed. It makes me miss home so much more. 
Friday:
 I brought out my booties I got last year from JCPenney on sale. They were extremely comfortable and I got a lot of compliments on them!

 My two besties got together on Friday night and we had this wonderful mixture of drinks. It was delicious!

Saturday:
My family and I went to Hobby Lobby. It was my dad and brother's first time there and they fell in love - they have a lot of guy stuff there too. 
I also stumbled upon these two polymer clay magnets. How adorable are they?!
I really want to get back into working with polymer clay, one day.

How cute is this tree topper? I should have bought it for my pink tree! 

I'm obsessed with these pink tree's, I keep taking pictures of them. I should have bought one. Ugh. Regrets!

I also stumbled across this M&M fleece fabric. I really want to purchase it but don't know for who!

My brother took my family & I out for dinner at Texas - SO good!

Sunday: 

While browsing the ad's (my favorite thing to do on Sunday's when I'm home) I stumbled across Charlie Brown's no-sew fleece blanket. I need to run to our local Joann's to purchase this. I love Snoopy! 

Our little watch dog, he thinks he is so tough. 


Outfit for game day: 
Eagles vest/Victoria Secrets pink thermal/Ross Jeans/Uggs

I found this cute chalkboard quote on Pinterest and copied. Hehe. It's almost Thanksgiving afterall!

Have a great night!

Sunday Wish List

Happy Sunday!

Ever have a Sunday wear you can't sleep in? I guess because I slept so much yesterday I couldn't sleep today. I hate that.
I don't know if this will be a regular post but I definitely want to do it sometimes. I see other bloggers do it and thought I'd join in. 

I hear a lot of talk about Real Techniques brushes on the blogging world. They're definitely a more affordable option. I'm thinking of trying out this set. You can find it here.


Now that fall/winter is upon us, I'm having a hard time with lighting and photos for my blog. I've been wanting umbrella lighting but just haven't pulled the trigger. I found these last night on Amazon.com, you can find the exact lighting here.

First can I say how adorable this set looks? It's won Allure's best in beauty, and you guys clearly know how much I love my bubble baths, I'd like to try this out. You can find it here.

Unfortunately, this set is now unavailable but they're cute nonetheless!

How adorable are these marshmallow mugs? You can find them here


What's on your Wish List? Have you made up your Christmas Wish List yet?

Ulta Haul

Happy Saturday!

Today I have a little Ulta haul to share. Last month I had my birthday coupon so I decided to make a trip plus I had 2X the points for my birthday month. I'm real close to making it to the next level for Ulta! 
As you can see I was in need of some new EOS lip balms. I live little eggs around my apartment, so they get used up rather quickly, I even have an EOS egg sitting on my desk at work. Hehe

You may have already seen this polish in my previous post. But I am show casing it again. It's the Zoya velvet matte polish. It's been all over Pinterest for a while now, but hasn't been in stores so when I saw it I grabbed it.

 The color is Poshmat. They do have more velvet colors, but I decided on this one.

This was also featured on my previous post. This was really an impulse buy and I should have bought something cheaper. I'm kind of regretting it, but it did work well when I wore it.



I've been looking for this EOS Coconut Milk lip balm for a while now. I feel like it's sold out every where. It really does smell like coconut milk - more milk than coconut. I use it everyday now. 

This is the limited edition Rachey Roy EOS collection. 



Calvin Klein mascara, it was Ulta's birthday gift for this year. I didn't even know Calvin Klein made makeup, do they just make mascara? 

The brush tip actually reminds me of the Buxom bristles. I have high hopes for this. I haven't tried it yet, I'm currently testing Model Co's Volume Eyes that came in my Ipsy October bag(which, btw, I'm loving!)

A cool "feature" the mascara does have is that the tip actually twists, I don't know how that actually works when you're using it because it's not like it locks into place. Have you tried this mascara?

This was on my Christmas Wish List but I decided to buy it early, in fear that it would be sold out by the time Christmas comes. You can find it here for $19. I didn't think that was too expensive considering you get a sample of mascara and an extra pad to change. I have no purchased a mascara wand in over 3 years. My Shuemura has lasted me forever.


That's all I have for you today. I went to Hobby Lobby and Christmas Tree Shop today so I will have more to share this coming week!

Have a great rest of your weekend. <3
