Drugstore, MAC and Ulta Hauls

Hey guys! Over the past couple of weeks, I have been out and about picking up things and wanted to share what I have purchased. I will do full reviews on these products as soon as I use them! So lets get started!!


Just randomly in here one day saw that some of the Milani products were on sale! The only Milani products I own are a few nail polishes and I wanted to try out some of their beauty products. I also wanted to pick up two more of the Jordana lip pencils, I love them!!!

Milani Products:

Brilliant Lip Shine Lip Gloss in Berry Tempting
Baked Blush in Red Vino
Iluminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar

Jordana Lip Pencils in Plush Plum(top) and Terra Kiss(bottom)


So I went to Ulta on multiple occasions and even found a random bag of goodies when I was cleaning one day lol!

The first trip was when I received the coupon for 3.50 off a purchase of 10 or more plus a free item in the category of how much you spent in a period of time. At the time the lip butters were buy one, get one half off and after reading about the Real Technique brushes, I decided to try one out. My free item was the Revlon nail polish. Everything else I wanted to get for my free item was sold out or in colors I didn't like too much!

Starting from Left to Right:

Revlon Lip Butter in Fig Jam
Real Technique Large Powder Brush
Revlon Nail Enamel in Dreamer
Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle

Second and third trips were after I got off work. There is an Ulta down the street from where I work which is not good lol! I found some really great NYX products in the clearance section!

From Left to Right:

OPI Nail Polish (from the new collection) in Don't Bossa Nova Me Around

Essie Nail Polish (From the Spring Collection)

And here is the random bag of goodies I found. I must of purchased this around Breast Cancer Awareness Month because of the pink bracelet that was in the bag. All of these items were in the clearance section, I had issues with getting the stickers off!

Nyx Lipstick in Chole
Zoya Nail Polish in Dove
Nyx Jumbo Lip Pencil In Iced Mocha
Zoya Nail Polish in Megan
Nyx Lipstick in Sky Pink


Lastly, I went to one of my favorite stores on two separate times. The first time, I wanted to see if there was anything left from the Spring collection. I wanted to get this pretty pink pigment and they were sold out so I picked up this really beautiful Mineralize Skinfinish in Perfect Topping.

So then I went to another MAC location on another day and was looking for a nice spring time lipstick and they had the new Mineralize lipsticks out. I tried on just about all of them and purchased two of them, a lip pencil and a small Studio Fix+.
(Left) Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Bold Spring
(Top Center) Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Nice N'Spicy
(Center) Fix+ Spray
(Left) Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Good Taste

That it is for my hauls from the past couple of weeks. I think I need to stay away from all beauty products until IMATS next month and then go on a no buy for a few months lol! What products have you tried? Which ones are you interesting in trying? Comment and let me know!

  3. I NEED to try some Milani products esp the blushes! I actually used to use Milani back in high school (2005). Its been around for quite some time. I used their shadows and eyeliners which I loved. Please let me know what you think of those Nyx shadows. I had only tried their quads and wasn't super impressed.

    1. Hey Tanya, thanks for stopping by! I had to try some of the Milani products after reading a few reviews about them. I love the NYX shadows, they are pretty pigmented.

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
