Sunday Funday

I think every Sunday I'll start doing photo posts. One thing I do not like about photo posts is that is seems very boastful ("look at how awesome and beautiful I am") but at the same time, it helps to be visceral, helps to not hide behind a blog and come out and see the sunshine every once in awhile.

Therefore, Sunday Funday might be the time to do just that. This particular Sunday, it's a solid 82 degrees outside, I'm sweating more than just being able to pass it off as a "glow" and I'm entirely too pale for this kind of balmy weather. Regardless, I went to Target and my salon today to pick up a few (and I really do mean a few) items for the hell of it. I waste money as much as people change their underwear, but I truly do need to cool it on the hauls. I won't bore you with long lists...they can be so terribly mundane.

Item 1 = Target Sunglasses ($12.99) - I'm the first to admit these look very "Alan from The Hangover" but I loved them nonetheless. The shape is awesome, a bit vintage if you ask me, and so very cheap that I had no reason not to snag them and wear them immediately.

Item 2 = Rimmel London Lipstick in #006 Pink Blush ($4) - I have been searching far and wide and up and down for Viva Glam Gaga lipstick (Edition 1....see former posts) and I came across this one today, as if in a dream. It seems perfect. I'm actually wearing it in the photo and will post another photo of it below. It's wonderful, I'm in love.

Item 3 = e.l.f. Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal ($1) - I was going to order this last night during my major e.l.f. haul, but held back, and now I know why...I could just wait and buy it not 24 hours later in the comfort of my own Target store. I have yet to use it (it is still packaged in the photo!) but I have a feeling I will adore this little bitch just as much as all my other highlighters/illuminators/whateverizers.

Item 4 = Tigi Catwalk Weightless Shine Spray ($20) - I went to get banged today (relax, I mean a bang trim) and my hair looked ridiculously frizzy in the salon mirror (they trick you, I swear). I tried out this little bad boy after my bang session and LOVED it; so light, so soft, too flipping perfect for words. Took away the frizz, added just the right amount of shine, and my blonde hair was glistening in the sunshine (not quite, but almost!) I will use this bottle up like a fat kid on cake, be sure of that!

P.S. My nails are "Laced Up" by the Sally Hansen Salon Effects. I wrote about them in my very first blog post!

SUNDAY FUNDAY  FOTO - Me, bare face (well, I'm rocking liquid blush actually!), Rimmel London lips (I wish they showed up just a smidgen better!)

How was YOUR Sunday? I spent it running errands, lunch with my sister, dinner outside with the family, and plenty of mojitos mixed in. If you are reading and are of drinking age, aren't mojoitos the perfect drink for, well, anything? I'm off to enjoy another one right now! You should, too.

If you're bored and trying to relax, take a look at my most recent haul (below) and dig your hands into some new e.l.f. products, too! You won't regret it!
