23 May

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.


Furry Friend Tag

2 Apr

I saw someone on youtube do this tag, and because I am obsessed with my dogs I had to do this tag.  I have no shame when I say that my 2 dogs are my best friends :), they’re my boys.  I usually don’t talk much about my life on this blog, because I want to keep it mainly to fashion and beauty, but every now and again if something special happens, or my dogs are being especially awesome that day I would love to come blog about it and share it with you all!

1)What is your pets name? How did you name them?
Boo & Kicks.  When Brian got Boo from the shelter he was already named that.  Kicks we named because of his obsession with shoes and we thought it was cute!

2) What kind of pet is it and what breed?
They’re both dogs.  Boo is a Golden Retriver and Kicks is a Yorkshire Terrier.
3) How long have you had your pet friend?
Boo is Brian’s dog and he has had him since he was 2, so about 6 or 7 years.  Brian and I have lived together for almost year, so I’ve had Boo for almost a year too.   I’ve had kicks for 3 months now.
4) How did you get your pet?
Brian got Boo from a non-profit, animal organization, like a shelter.  We got Kicks from a breeder.
5) How old is your pet?
Boo is 7 or 8 (he will be 8 or 9 on April 1st) and Kicks is 5 months old.
6) What are some quirky things about your pets personality?
Boo is a huge goof, he is older but has the personality and activity of a puppy.  He is the most loving dog you will ever meet and will play tug o’ war for hours with you.  As far as being quirky, Boo loves humping (probably TMI, I know), he also has the ability to smile (and does so frequently!), and is a world-champ at chasing his tail.   Kicks loves cuddling up against shoes and sleeping on them, cuddling is probably is favorite activity, he loves wearing little t-shirts, and thinks he is King of the world (I’ve tried correcting him, but he refuses to listen!).  Other than that he is your typical puppy!
7) What does your relationship with your pet mean to you?
It means everything, I have already stated that they are my BFF’s;  I also call them my PICs (Partners-in-Crime).  However, they’re more to me than that I spend most of my day playing with them, cuddling them, and just taking care of them.  They really are like my kids, especially since I don’t think I want actual children.
8) What are some of your favorite past times with your pet?
I’ve only had Kicks for 3 months so we haven’t had time to travel the world, yet.  However, we’ve taken him to a few dog parks and to a river, which is always fun.  At our house he is very dominant and barks at anyone he sees, letting them know he owns the place.  However, at dog parks he is often right in between my legs, scared out of his mind, but he loves running around with Boo.  We’ve also taken him to all of our parents house.  My favorite activity with Kicks  though is cuddling because no matter what he always has to fall asleep on top of me, which melts my heart to pieces.  I love taking Boo to parks the most because he is so social that he loves running around with all the dogs, playing fetch, rolling around on the ground, running in the water, and chasing geese.  It can make even the most depressed person happy to watch Boo at  a park because that is when he is his happiest.
9) What are nicknames that you call your pet?
I call Boo, Boo-Boo almost all of the time.  I usually call Kicks my Love Bug.  Other than that I’ll call them both monsters (they love causing trouble!) and other random names I come up with spur of the moment!

Do you have any pets?  I would love for you to do this tag, either in the comments below, or on your blog, and link it so I can see your cute pets!
