First Haul of 2012

Yay, Happy New Year & all that jazz!

It's back to work tomorrow after a too-short break away from the kiddos, so I thought I'd help the wounds by shopping. Apparently, everyone else in my town thought the same.....woof.

I headed to Victoria's Secret for their semi-annual sale before going to Old Navy and Ulta. A mini spree, yes, but I'm still stoked about the goods!

Shall we just skip the VS portion of the shopping trip? I think so...
Oh, and let's forget the fact that I lost my camera cord and had to take these with my trusty iPhone.

Striped Sweater -- Not entirely sure what drew me in about this seeing as how it is bright and has stripes, but nevertheless, I love it now. A bit of nautical, a bit of prep, perfect for work!
Twisted Neck Top -- I picked it up merely because it was cheap, but the effect of the "twist" around the neckline is really cute, and again, stripes! Sensing a pun intended.
Bobble Bottle -- Thanks to my blogging buddy AlmostBritain for telling me about these! I will (hopefully) be able to keep h2o bottles out of my car by using this bad boy which filters the water for you. Woot woot! Found it by the check-out at ON, couldn't resist!

*Thanks to my dear, dear friend in FL who got me an Ulta giftcard for Christmas. She just knows me, that one!!*
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Zero -- Finally! I got one! I went to see if they had the NAKED liner set from the holidays, but alas, it was sold out. Bummer. Still, I knew I needed to add one of these bad boys to my arsenal and the one I picked up was the last Zero, so it was really fate calling out to me. Obviously.
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion -- Have used this before but was bone dry on my last bottle. I am slightly addicted to this stuff even though my skin problems are (usually) non-existent. This stuff works, though, for those "ahhhh" moments around the time of the month.
Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie -- (Another) finally! I have been looking for these everywhere and could never find them. I was entirely unsure of what color to get, but this raspberry hue looks rich and perfect for the winter months. I may have to review this bad boy, more to come perhaps.
Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Love Letter -- Could not pass this "color" up when I saw it; very newspaper nails but without the work/mess! Clearly anything that looks like it took time but didn't is a winner in my lazy-ass book.
Urban Decay Mini De-Slick Setting Spray -- Running low on my "All-Nighter" spray and thought I'd give "De-Slick" another chance. I could use some oil control as of late so hopefully this work better than the classic spray.

There you have it, a haul to start off the new year right! As a side note, you should definitely hit up your nearest VS for their semi-annual sale. Ridiculously good deals! I got eight items for $100....and let's be real, ladies, most bras there retail for at least $75 -- and who doesn't love a great sale?!

Until next time, I hope your new year is also starting off wonderfully............


  1. I have a serious stripe fetish that I'm trying to break. About half my shirts are stripes and it needs to stop, but they're so damn cute!

    Glad to hear you found a Bobble! I had no clue ON had them! I found them at Earth Fare. They're so cute!

    I love Mario's stuff. That Drying Lotion is amazeness.

    Those SH stickers are so cute! You gotta post a picture when you put them on.

    Oh and let me know how you like the UD liner! 24/7 my ass, on my eyes. The stuff fades, creases, smudges, etc. on me and I can't figure out why!

  2. So need to try those UD 24/7 liners at some point. I always hear such good things!

    I'd love to know if Deslick works as my oil sitch is outta control. lol

  3. I love the new Sally Hansen design!! I picked up that one when I was at the drugstore too! Can't wait to try it

    xo Jackie

  4. I have avoided shopping because I know it's crazy these first few days! Love that striped Old Navy shirt!

  5. I need to try that drying lotion.

    I've never been a big fan of stripes (I think the "horizontal stripes make you look wide" thing was genetically imprinted on my brain or something), but I love those shirts! The twisted neck detail is super cute.

  6. I just bought the UD setting spray. I hope I like it!

    Hey could you vote for me to be the next Rimmel 10? I'm Megan M. All the infos on my blog!

  7. How does the Mario Bedescu drying lotion work? i've heard his products are wonderful.
