*Sephora Haul*

I picked up a bunch of stuff on Black Friday from Sephora that I can't wait to share, so I finally took photos!

I did a lot of shopping online black friday and also yesterday, Cyber Monday. (Oh, and just in case anyone is wondering, Forever 21 free shipping, NO minimum) I also bought a few things from Forever 21, and a few gifts from there as well... and the fiance was kind enough to allow me to pick out things for Christmas. :) He's too good to me. 

But, anyway, I'm still waiting for that stuff to come in the mail before I post everything. :)

Anyway, onto the Sephora haul!

First off, how adorable is this little snowflake they attached to the bag?

I must say, I absolutely love the smell of this. It might be my new favorite over Bath and Body Works Winter Candy Apple, although my fiance love the Winter Candy Apple, he wouldn't let me give it up. haha
I like this one, and Snowangel, and Eggnog believe it or not. Adding them to my wish list!

I got this on black friday for $10.00 .. it's a full size mascara AND eyeliner. <3

This is just a little holiday kit for $10.00 and I'm very excited about the lip glaze.. I wanted a red lip color.

Very cute.

 This was the better deal of them all.. $10 on Black Friday, but originally $30. Good deal.

I'm sorry for the blurry photo.. I took this photo like 10 times, and this is the best I got. haha. Just so you guys know the color.

Black Friday Shopping

I don't know about anyone else, but I had to work black friday, as I mentioned before, I also don't mind working, but I also get jealous of everybody's amazing deals. 

I always, always tell myself one year I won't work it and just go out shopping all day.

One day.

I did some shopping at Sephora for their 10 deals for $10. And I also headed to Target and picked up an E.l.f. eyeshadow palette for $10 which I'll post a photo of.. it's just going to be a little preview until I have time to take good photos. 
I had to be at work for 3:30AM and I was scheduled till 2PM. Needless to say it was a long day. And I'm very exhausted. But somehow I have to get motivated and work on this paper that is due monday that I keep putting off. AHH! Instead I'm blogging. hehe. 

What did everyone else score on black friday? I'm so curious! I wanted to go to Victoria Secrets SO bad to pick up a yoga pant and crew neck sweat shirt. OMG, I wanted to go so bad. But it was just too damn busy, and by the time I got a break I just wanted to sit on my bum. haha.

Happy Thanksgiving to my beautiful readers!

I want to wish all my beautiful readers and their families a Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful for so many things, especially my wonderful readers, if it wasn't for you guys I would no longer be blogging. So thank you!

I'll be eating three thanksgiving dinners at all different places. It's going to be a very "filling" day. Haha. I'm mostly excited for pie. Ohh how I love pie. Coconut creme pie! MMmM. I'm actually not a huge fan of turkey, nor gravy, weird right? haha. 

Anyway, enjoy your thanksgiving, and EAT GOOD! :)

Home for the Holiday

Well, it's been an awful long day for me.
I was suppose to have a class at 2:10 today, my professor cancelled at 1:49. Blah. Waste of time.
After my fiance was done with his classes, off we went. I packed up everything I could possibly think of.
Get home, forgot cell phone charger. Dummy.
 After a 2 hour drive, in the pouring rain, headed to work. 
Home now, trying to relax. :) 

A few weeks ago I ordered an ornament from that has our engagement photos on it. And I just got it in the mail today. I can't wait to show you guys. Right now, it's crappy out, dark, not a good time to take photos. But I do have the proof of what it is suppose to look like, so I'm going to share that. 
Best part? It was only $3.39 I should have announced this sooner, but I was afraid the quality wasn't going to be any good, and I wanted to wait until I got it to see if I would even like it, but in fact, I love it. The only thing I'm dissappointed in, is the fact I didn't put the year on the ornament. And yes, you do have that option. So I might reorder if they still have the promotion going on. 

Anyway, here's the proof. 

And yes, it came in the shape of a heart, and not only that, it came with an adorable red ribbon to hang on the tree. So perfect. I can't wait to take photos and show you the actual ornament. 
Anyway, I'm beat, I'll talk to you guys tomorrow!

I'm heading to my last day of classes before Thanksgiving break, so I thought I would dress a little festive.. with an orange top that is.  Haha. I'm just wearing my Charlotte Russe orange tunic that I bought last year and I'm finally wearing now, Decree jeans and boots from

Weekend Shopping: Target and Forever 21

 I'm not sure if anyone remembers, but last week Forever 21 had a Friends & Family promotion where they were offering free shipping -- no minimum purchase. So I picked up a cute sparkly tank, cupcake earrings for a whooping $1.50 and cupcake fingerless gloves, which I'm very disappointed in! I'll show you why.

These earrings are adorable, and they were only $1.50. They come in silver as well.

Cupcake fingerless gloves. $5.80. They're cute, BUT, they forgot to put a cupcake on the other glove. Hello?! I'm not happy with them, but to ship them back it'll cost me more than what I got. 

 At Target I stumbled upon this little fellow. He was only $2.50. The countdown's come in the form of a Santa, snowman, and this adorable reindeer.

I also picked up a new lunch bag for work for when I go back this coming Tuesday. Thanksgiving break and I'm working, and I'm excited about it. 

I work in retail so I get the joy of going to work at 3:30 in the morning. :) I actually don't mind it at all. I look forward to it. I love Christmas, and I love seeing people in the Christmas spirit by going out super early to pick up that special gift for someone special. 

Also, I had a lot of requests to do reviews on the E.l.f makeup I picked up at Target in a previous haul which can be found here on this post. I already started using the products, so I'll give a proper review when I've used them all. :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

E.l.f. Haul

Over the weekend the fiance and I went to our local Target and I picked up some things by E.l.f. 

There was a few things I wanted to try and I also picked up some extras. Have any of you tried these products? Any opinions? I haven't actually tried them yet, I'm actually just taking them out of the bag to put in my make up storage. I'm hoping to try the concealer, eye primer, & tinted moisturizer.

Very nice packaging on this duo.

Colors look very nice on this, I've been wanting to try this contour set, and for only $3, I don't know why I haven't tried this sooner.

I heard this primer was really good, and it was only $1, so why not try.

I seriously am running so low on my concealer so this was a good buy.

I'll report back when I try these things. Leave me know if you already have and if you liked it or not?

I'm really starting to get sick of my hair.
I highly dislike my hair in the winter months because I don't do anything with it. I usually end up covering up my highlights with a boring dark blonde color that fades it what seems like 2 days. I want to do something new, something fresh.
There's something about getting your hair done or styled in a different way that makes you feel like a new, different person. And what's wrong with a little change?
I've been on and I found a ton of cute hair styles that I'm loving. Especially the waterfall braid with curly hair.

Other styles I'm loving.

TJMaxx & JCPenney Haul

I had a $10.00 off any purchase for JCPenney's so I picked up some cute things. 

Adorable Cardigan. A red tank would look cute under this for the Holidays. 

I picked up this adorable owl thermal and a pair of polka dot panty hose. Veronika's blog featured her's from Target, I picked mine up at JCPenney's for $6.99 (I forget how much she paid for hers at Target)

My fiance picked this up from TJMaxx for me. OMG -- smells delicious. It seriously smells like a vanilla cupcake. 

Sprinkles on top. :)

Organic? Well it smells amazing.. and it was only $5.99 

Anyway, I have to get back to studying I have another huge exam for Accounting, and I'm procrastinating haha.

Bath and Body Works, Aerie & Victoria Secrets Haul

I picked up some amazing things from Bath and Body Works. I mean they should really just label it Vanessa's. Everything for this year's holiday collection is either cupcakes or bows. I mean really. So when the fiance and I walked in there, I had the intent of buying just one thing and one thing only, the Gingerbread candle holder. As soon as I walk in a girl hands me a $10 off $30 coupon. Great. 
But it was actually turned out I wanted so many things. If you haven't been to your local Bath & Body works, get your butt over their now.

I haven't actually plugged this in yet, but it's suppose to have a bunch of twinkling lights. That's so exciting.

Weird right? It's a bow to place on top of their soap dispensers!  And it was only $2

Portable cupcake scents. So cute. 

BOW wallflower, I mean this stuff was made for me.

And of course, I got what I went there for. How cute is this?

From Victoria Secrets I picked up my free panties. I'm showing you these because I'm curious if any one has tried the ones on the left? They're so cute and I'm thinking of getting more.

And from Aerie I picked up their yoga flare pants. I was super excited when I was browsing online that Aerie carried fold-over yoga pants in FLARE. Seriously Victoria Secrets, what were you thinking when you went away with those? *shakes heads* I'm not a huge fan of their boot cut, I'd rather flare. Anyway, these bad boys come in long, and they're only $19.99(on sale of course) instead of the $34.50 you'd pay for Vicki's ones.
