For about a month I stayed away from purchasing makeup, or anything that I didn’t absolutely need, really. However, I broke down and bought a few things, which are shown in this haul. However, 2 other sales took advantage of me while I was weak and I ended up placing a few online orders, which will be shown in future hauls once they arrive. Anyway, I’ve purchased a few random items from books, haircare, and nailpolish. Keep reading to see what I bought!
The Carrie Diaries: the coming-of-age story of one of the most iconic characters of our generation, Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. Read more information on the book here. I picked this up because I am obsessed with the Sex and the City. Of course, I had to read this book and I can’t wait to read the sequel after!
Sliding Into Home: Kendra Wilkinson, former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner and Girls Next Door star, shares her autobiography which includes everything from growing up to her life at the playboy mansion, and now beyond as a wife and mother. More information on the book here. Similarly with SATC, I loved the Girls Next Door and Kendra was always my favorite. I had been wanting to read this now since it came out around a year or so ago. I am almost done with the Harry Potter series, unfortunately (review/thoughts coming in a blog post in the near future), so this looked like it would be an easy, quick read which I am looking forward to after reading around 3,000 pages for a series.
Nivea Goodbye Cellulite Gel-Cream: I just made a post about wanting this, so I had to pick it up when I saw it at Walgreens for 25% off and then I had an additional $3 off coupon. I ended up paying $7 and saving $6. Not too shabby. I have not used this yet but will do updates about this product.
ApHogee Keratin and Green Tea Restructurizer: I have been using this product for a while now, and was about out so I stopped into Sallys to pick up another, and use the coupon I had (see below).
Sinful Colors in Timbleberry: NOTD
China Glaze For Audry: NOTD
China Glaze Crackle in Lightning Bolt
China Glaze Crackle in Cracked Concrete
I had a coupon for a free China Glaze Nail Polish with any $10 purchase at Sallys. I ended up getting these polishes, with the China Glaze For Audry for free! I have yet to use the crackle polishes but I cannot wait to! Stay tuned for a NOTD featuring them! See swatches below, although the crackle effect did not work very well, because I think it was on a notecard rather than an actual finger nail.
While this item is not beauty related, I had to show it. Kicks, my yorkie, loves wearing shirts. However, in summer I can’t put a thick sweater on him because he’ll be too hot. However, I saw this for $1 at Target and simply could not pass it up. It summarizes him completely, or at least what he thinks about him self. While he is the smallest in our family, he definitely believes he is the alpha dog, and the leader of the pack.
