I decided to treat myself and since e.l.f. was having a sale I decided to partake. I think I have mentioned before that I really like e.l.f because not only is their quality good and reliable, but it is extremely affordable.
3 piece Gift set includes Moisturizing Lipstick in Rosy-Go-Round, Baked Highlighter in Blush Gems, and The Silk Eyeshadow in Rose all day. This was a nice surprise as I actually completely forgot about it, so when I opened my package I also thought they messed up and sent me extra stuff. Massaging Facial Cleanser was something I added on a whim, I have never used one before, usually because these are expensive. This one was on sale and affordable so I thought “Why not?” I needed a new liquid liner, so when I saw the Intense Ink Eyeliner I had to get it. I had to toss a couple this week because of age or quality so I am hoping this one does not let me down. I didn’t notice until I got it that I purchased a Black Navy which I hope will look good with my brown eyes. I have been wanting to try the e.l.f. Active so I got the Workout Ready Lip Tint in Fearless Pink. I want to eventually try all the Active brand beauty items.
I needed a facial oil so I purchased the Nourishing Facial Oil. I really like the e.l.f skincare line so I am super eager to use this and see how this goes. I also purchased the Mattifying Mask, because I love me some masks! I have been wanting the Molten Liquid Eyeshadow in Rose Gold for a while and it is finally available and on sale, YAY! I got another Baked Highlighter this time in Moonlight pearls which I am super eager to use as I am finally feeling confident in using them. Last but not least the Lip Exfoliator in sweet cheery, I’ve used their exfoliators before so I am a huge fan!
Tried any of the products? What do you think about them?
So, the only person who gives me presents anymore is my husband. I’m 30 years old so except for the occasional cookies from coworkers, a gift card from work client, or a Christmas card from a family member I don’t get much in the way of gifts. S I guess this makes it a hubby haul? wait, actually that just makes me sound like I practice Polyandry. I don’t I am a one woman man… or you know the other way around. I really should stop typing. So this is mostly just a picspam post. I will most likely be reviewing these items, so if there is something you want me to review (or swatch) first, let me know!
As you can see I’m going to be having a lot of fun trying out my new goodies.
I love the way this top looks, the only problem is that the fabric has zero give. It’s not really tight, but it’s not loose either which makes me wish I ordered a size larger than I wear. Either way the bird details are pigmented and I love wearing this with some blue jeans and pink flats.
I purchase this chiffon top because I actually have a skirt that this would perfectly match too. Plus I love the sleeves, they are a cute and stylish.
* Dragonfly Embellished Flats / Blue $27.60
As you can see my flats were the most expensive thing I purchased, they were also the reason I ordered from Romwe. While slightly narrower than I like, they are not too bad. I love the dragonfly embellishment.
I’ve been pretty into flats lately, plus with my new job I really wanted shoes that I not only would be comfortable in but also I feel is stylish. Now that I am older I sometimes prioritize comfort over fashion however I feel like flats are stylish. I still love heels don’t get my wrong but wearing them 8 hours a day is killer. I’ll start trying to look for comfortable heels (oxymoron).
My favorite are the yellow flats, I love wearing yellow, it’s one of those colors that I feel goes really well with me. I will say the most comfortable (besides the Polo shoes) are the black H&M flats. Hopefully I’ll be able to post some OOTD posts so you can see how I style them.
I’m trying to be more Cruelty free conscious when purchasing my make up and beauty products. Going to the drugstore however I feel they have a very limited selection for Cruelty free lookers. I mean Come on it’s 2017, testing on animals is no longer okay!!!
Anyway while I did not buy much I wanted to show you what I did buy.
HaskArgan Oil Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner.
Shea MoistureAfrican Black Soap Body Wash
JasonTea Tree Oil
While the Shampoo and Conditioner and Body wash is mine I actually got the Tea Tree Oil for my husband. The Tea Tree Oil is for exfoliating his chin and neck hair for when he needs to shave. My husband has wavy hair and so it’s particularly hard to shave his chin and neck (the problem areas) which results in redness, ingrown hairs and razor burn.
I’ll be sure to write a review once I have used it all.
As I mentioned in this post HERE, while waiting for a prescription to be filled I decided to peruse the Make up aisle.
Recently I made a decision to be more conscious about Vegan and Cruelty free products. To my utter disappointment the only brand I was able to find that was Cruelty Free was Wet N’ Wild. Come on people it’s the year 2017 can be stop testing products on animals please!?
Anyway I do love Wet N Wild and I have featured some of their products on my blog before, plus they were having a buy 2 for $5 deal which was pretty awesome.
2 Perfect Pout Gel Lip Balm in Tease and Love
MegaSlim Skinny Mascara in Black
The Saving Base Nail Polish

Large Eyeshadow Brush
Flat Top Brush
I cannot wait to use all the products and let you all know how they work. I’m especially excited for the gel lip balms!
So it may be dangerous to have Lush right down the street. It’s very dangerous. Don’t worry about my last haul, I’m in the process of writing reviews for the products I used so they should be up soon, I’m just trying to make all my post to be about Lush (but would that be such a bad thing?). Let’s just talk about what I purchased okay?
MMMelting Marshmellow Mement Bath Oil
You’ve been Mangoed Bath Oil
Lip Service Lip Balm
Pumice Power Foot Soap
Milky Bath bubble bar
I am really excited to use these products, keep on the lookout for the reviews!
