So much shopping... not enough time/money

(I wrote this a few weeks ago and forgot to post it...)
It's been a little while since I've posted. I thought I should update everyone on what's been going on with me the past couple of weeks.

I got my taxes back and did some shopping. I got quite a haul.

Twice from Sephora and twice for circle lenses. I ordered from and from during the Valentine's day sale in February. I also bought quite a bit of clothes as well. I am a bargain shopper, so I got a lot of clothes for me and the kids. (loveshoppingholics review will be on a different post.)


First haul from February 21
Ole Henriksen Seven Skincare Sensations, tokidoki Adieu, ALTERNA Caviar Anti-Aging Experience Set, GLO Whitening Antioxidant Toothpaste; free samples: Murad Time Release Retinol Concentrate For Deep Wrinkles, REN Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream, NUDE Skincare ProGenius™ Treatment Oil; free with code: First Aid Beauty Dual Repair Face Cream deluxe; deluxe samples (used points): Dr. Brandt Skincare glow by dr. brandt™ ruby crystal retinol hydracrème, Bumble and bumble Straight Blow Dry.

The only things I've really used from this haul are the Ole Henriksen products, Adieu, and the ALTERNA hair set. I really love the Ole line! There are a few items that I will have to get different products of tho. I like the On the Go Cleanser much better than the cleanser that came in the kit and I need and oil-free moisturizer rather than the one that came in the kit. Adieu has a slightly sweet and fruity scent that I like a lot. It's very spring summery and feminine without being too childish or girly smelling. As far as the hair set goes, I think I like it, but I have not really gotten a chance to use it yet. the package I received was damaged, so I had to get it replaced. I will make a different post about how I like it. ヽ(‘ー`)ノ

Second haul from February 23
Hello Kitty HK Grafitti Suitcase (not pictured), SEPHORA COLLECTION Deluxe Airless Travel Kit, SEPHORA COLLECTION Putting On The Spritz Atomizer,Betsey Johnson Too Too Gift Set; free samples: Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream, NUDE Skincare ProGenius™ Treatment Oil, Escada Especially Escada. 

There's not really much to say about this haul as I haven't used anything yet. I am going to Florida in April. Once I have used these items, other than the perfume, I will make a post how everything worked out for me. As far as Too Too, I really like this scent. It's a little hard for me to explain the scent tho. It's floral, sweet, but it has this edge to it that says, feminine, quirky, fun and  strong... I can't really explain well that other scent, woodsy maybe...? I especially love the little party clutch with the huge bow that came with the set I bought!! It's too too cute!! ☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

I purchased in the store: Too Faced Air Buffed BB Crème Complete Coverage Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen. I had initially bought the BB cream from Tarte, but did not end up keeping it. I played with the sample I had received more and wanted something with more coverage. I decided to go ahead and exchange the Tarte BB cream for the Too Faced BB cream and I'm glad I did, I love this cream from Too Faced! It has all the benefits of the BB creams, but with better coverage. The only thing that I don't like, the brush is so small. I bought a Sonia Kashuk® Kashuk Tools Synthetic Flat Top Multipurpose Brush - No 04 from Target. It feels exactly like the brush that came with the Too Faced BB cream, but larger. This made putting on the cream so much easier. (ヘ。ヘ)
