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)
Under The Twilight (left) and Resort Fling (Right)
Ardell Glamour Demi Lashes #101

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.

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
