October Days and Shopping Trips

Does anyone else get a "high" from shopping, or is it just me? I'm always just so happy when I come home with bags, even if they are small! And what else makes a fall day better than a pumpkin spice latte? I wished they offered these all year round.







My real reason for shopping was to get some supplies I needed for some fall decorations I am making at home. But I ended up in the makeup aisle at the end of my trip and made some purchases there too, as well as the clearance aisle - story of my life. I will post these DIY's soon! Stay tuned for some candy corn decor, a fall wreath and banner, and some pumpkins!






This is my makeup haul I purchased. I haven't used any of it yet, so I will have to do the reviews at a later date. 

Brazilian Keratin Therapy Mask - This is supposed to be a deep conditioner that also keeps frizz at bay and keeps hair straight. I am hoping it will help prolong my Chi Enviro Treatment I did a while back. (You can find the review here ).

Khroma Illuminator - This was an impulse aisle buy. I grabbed it because the color looked like one I would use. Upon closer inspection, it is made by the Kardashian sisters. What doesn't that family sell?! I purchased it anyway.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends Oil Control Powder - I bought this because I was tired of the powder I have and wanted something different. We'll see how it works.

Loreal BB Cream - I got this in the lightest shade. I am about as pale as a ghost at the moment. But I have been wanting to try BB cream for a while now. Hopefully I'll like it. 

I stumbled upon these in the clearance aisle. Only $2! I plan to use them as stocking stuffers and put nail polish, lip gloss, and/or jewelery inside them. I think they are so cute! Then again, I am a bit obsessed with mason jars so maybe its just me. 






Have you started shopping for Christmas gifts yet? Happy Friday!

  5. I tried a sample of that BB cream and really liked it and seeing this post just reminded me that I had wanted to try it in the full size! hope it works out well for you! I'm the same way, I always convince myself to go through the cosmetic sections quickly-- but always leave with something!
