After Christmas Shopping Haul! Target and Bath & Body!

Hey ladies, so of course after Christmas we must all run out and go shopping with our Christmas money! Or do what I do and spend most of it on hot chocolates and gas money lol. But, I went out and bought some really cute things from Target and Bath and Body. Both those stores are my favorites to go in when I am shopping, I always go in being like “I’ll just spend $25” but, I end up leaving and being like “How did I spend $100 on lotion and socks?!”

I went to Target and picked up some really adorable organizers for my makeup vanity! I am someone who puts all the makeup on and just tosses it on my desk with no organization at all. So, I decided to pick up some little bins and holders to give my vanity a more professional clean look. Get this, I bought all these little cute holders below, all for $1 each! When you walk into Target they have a little $1 section, and you can find all these little containers there currently. I think they are a great bargain, and are good enough quality to hold my makeup brushes, lip glosses, and other cosmetic extras! They had a lot of different colors, but I went with the pink and white holders, so I would have some sort of theme. Below, I also have a picture of my makeup vanity, which is basically is an Ikea desk, and a giant mirror with a lamp. Haha pretty make-shift, but I prefer this set up, I have had real vanity tables in the past and they are too small! Using an actual desk allows me to spread out my stuff when using it πŸ™‚ If you guys want a post about how I organize my makeup and my vanity desk let me know in the comments down below, and I’ll be sure to write one.

From Bath and Body, I got lots of goodies! I went there this week during their semiannual sale! They have lots of great deals, and a million products to buy for super cheap after the holidays. Seriously this is a warning, it is dangerous to go there if you don’t have much money on you, I got a little carried away…

Below, I picked up the Cashmere Glow shimmer Bomb, which is so incredible! It is a gel that you can rub onto your arms, legs, etc. and it is completely filled with different shimmery colored reflects. It also has a “glow” due to it’s slightly golden finish. This gel looks absolutely gorgeous on any skin tone, and smells amazing! After the sale discount, I got it for $3, which is an awesome deal for 6 oz of product. Next to it in the picture, is the Aromatherapy Sleep Lotion. I, like any other 20 year old, am a huge night owl. It takes me a lot of rolling around and starring at the ceiling in order to fall asleep at night. This lotion appealed to me, because I needed a new lotion and now I found one that aids in sleeping. Β It claims that the honey and milk scent has a warm cinnamon and clove oil that promotes comfort and rest. Whether it actually helps me to sleep or not, the lotion is a great consistency; not greasy or sticky. It finishes smooth and silky, and has a very nice smell reminding me of fall; very warm and rich. The bottle itself is dark blue glass, and is very finely packaged. This lotion is originally $14 and After the sale I got it for $7!

Next I picked up this True Blue Spa Apricot and White Tea facial scrub. I am obsessed with face products right now, and was really excited to pick up this product! I love this brand, and every product I have tried from them I have really loved! Their lotions are so incredible, and they have a pretty good selection of products at Bath and Body. Definitely check them out, if your looking for any good skin care products. I have already tried this out and the scrub is very coarse so you have to be gentle when cleansing your skin. But, it left my face incredibly smooth and clean feeling. It also smells really good, which is obviously important to me :p Next to it in the picture is by the same brand and it is the True Blue Spa Unscented Shea Butter. As I said, their lotions work better than any I have ever tried before, including high end products. This tube is a pretty good size at 6 oz, I will probably end up using it as my purse lotion, I love to use this stuff on my hands to moisturize. I like that they offers scented and non scented lotions. My skin is very sensitive, but I don’t need to worry about this lotions having any harsh scents that might irritate my skin. As well, if you have perfume, scented shampoo, etc. It is nice to have a lotion for your body thats scent won’t interfere with the scent of your other products. I bought both of these on sale for $3 a piece, which is phenomenal considering they are normally around $15 per bottle.

My favorite Perfumes! Mhhhh…

I do not know about all of you…But when it comes to perfumes, body sprays, and scents I just can’t get enough! I love sweet candy smells, musky smells, and even sometimes just the scent of my car when I am gassing my Nissan lol So here it is, my list of current favorite perfumes. Some of these are older and newer, and some I just can’t live without even if they are old and forgotten. Please let me know if the comments which perfume is your favorite? Or is you like one from my list! πŸ™‚ Or maybe something I should try out?

#1) Fantasy By Brittany Spears…This is one of those forgotten ones I was talking about. I will always love the sweet smell and it is my boyfriend’s favorite.

#3) Gucci Rush 2….They don’t even make this anymore, and I pay extra to get my hands on it! This bottle’s scent smells so classy and divine! I love the square packaging as well!

#4) Gucci Guilty…Yes another Gucci perfume, but if you buy them off of Ebay, Perfume Mania, or Sephora they aren’t too pricey :0 I received this for my birthday, and it was one of the best gifts ever! It is pretty expensive, so I literally use a spray a month. But oh my gosh do I love the smell. I used to go into Sephora just to spray myself all over and leave lol Amazing!

I love getting hair products in the monthly bag! I get so excited to try them out! I tried this out a little on my dry hair, which wasn't very effective, just gave me a little bit of texture. I think the best way to use this is when your hair is wet and you scrunch the product into your hair...If you guys have used this on wet hair, let me know how your experience with it went! This product smells amazing, and seems like an oil based hair serum, I am interested to see how it will come out and if it is a good dupe for the Bumble and Bumble kind!

Unfortunately, I did not receive the Benefit Benetint. But instead, I received the Salt Air Roll On Perfume. I would have liked to get the Benetint, because I love Benefit products, but I am happy with this sample too! The sample size is great for a perfume, and it is nice to try out because it is a sent I would not usually pick, but smells pretty good. The smell is light and fresh, but the consistency is a little bit greasy. If you want an airy clean smell this is nice to tab on the wrists and behind your ears.

The first product I have in my bag is the Coola SPF Mineral Sunscreen. It is a pretty small sample, but at least it is unscented so it does not smell like a gross sunscreen scent. I tried out a little bit on my face, before I applied my foundation. The consistency is creamy and non greasy.

Yes! Eyeshadow palette woop woop! I love eyeshadows, and the fact that we got three as one product is amazing, especially since they have counted one little eyeshadow as a whole product before! On top of all that the colors here are amazing! I used the Malibu and San Francisco for a makeup look yesterday on my eyes, as seen in the pictures below! I am excited to use the hollywood, I will probably use it for a pop of color under neath my eyes. They are all really well pigmented and full of shimmer! The gold and metallic brown are beautiful for summer looks, but could easily be used with the purple for a night time as well. What can I say, I am very excited about this product. Well done Ipsters.

I was excited to receive the Pop Lip Crayon in "Coral Crush" I put this on my lips yesterday and fell in love with it! The color is buildable, and feels very smooth on my lips. The texture isn't sticky or greasy it is perfect with a little bit of lip balm under neath it.
