A little haul for ya...

The first place I did some damage was Ulta. I have been really good and haven't made a trip there in over a month! Which is a long time for me haha. Anyway I went to redeem my Ulta rewards certificate which I was a level 4. I picked out the its a 10 miracle leave in treatment which is something I absolutely love! Its a great product and when I can get it for free I will take it. Then I picked up some nail polish colors.

From left to right: wet and wild fantasy makers in black magic and purple potion, OPI crown me already! and Lucerine-tainly look marvelous. I picked up that dark gray in hopes it could be like Chanel's graphite.

The next place I went to was bath and body works. I love the fall season and I wanted to pick me up some fall scents. First from their halloween collection I picked out the three mini adorable halloween packaged candles. So cute! and for the fall season I picked up the scents, Autumn Apple ( my favorite) roasted marsh mellow, and autumn. I figured I would try out the smaller candles first since I wasn't sure how they would smell when they were burned.

 The last place I went to was Victoria's secret and I was drawn in on the adorable yoga shorts/pants. I picked up two of each because they have the cutest designs on them!! Up top are the shorts and below are the pants. I am so in love with these!
Alrighty, now its time for me to go since my dogs are begging me to take them for a walk as I am typing up this blog post...
how could you say no to that little face...

Everyday Makeup Storage

I decided to revamp my makeup storage by adding something on top of my vanity that i could put my pencils and everyday makeup in. I didn't want just a cup for my pencils so I looked for something that went all together that I could get. I did my research and found something great. I headed over to one my favorite organization stores (The Container Store) and picked up something perfect for what I wanted.
The container store has these office sets that you can stack and they come in three different sizes. I picked out things from the smallest size because I wanted something that would no take up too much space on my vanity. I picked up two drawers ($8.99) and the top part ($14.99). 
In the top compartment they come with removable dividers which i used to separate my pencils and mascaras. 
The back part which is big I use to put my mac eyeshadow pallets, my urban decay naked pallet, and my mark pallets which I use the most. 
The bottom compartment I put smaller eyeshadow pallets that I like to use for everyday looks and my favorite highlight eyeshadow color.
You can choose from many different inserts to put in the draws which is great. In the top drawer, i bought the 2 compartment drawer insert ($4.99) and put my gel eyeliners.

I also purchased the 2 compartment drawer insert for the bottom and put the products I reach for everyday. It makes it so much easier and quicker when I get ready for the day in the morning.

Hair Feathers

For the summer I decided to get some hair feather extensions. I wasn't sure if I should get the clip  in kind or  get them put in professionally. My best friend wanted to get them too so we decided to get them put in professionally together. Now I am the kind of girl who loves color! I could not pass up the bright colors for summer and decided to get a hot pink and a hot blue feather put into my hair.
My hair is very long so the feathers do not reach all the way down to the bottom of my hair but i didn't care too much about that. I decided to get them put on the side of my head so I had the choice of hiding them if I needed too. I got them put in in early July and they have been holding up strong this whole summer.

They way they were put in was if I was to get regular hair extensions so they are like bonded to a little group of a few hair strands. I have to be careful when I brush my hair because the comb can get caught about where the feather is bonded to my hair. So far I have not had any problems with them and I love them!

I haven't decided if I am going to take them out or just leave them in until they fall out. The colors are a bit bright for fall so I probably will end up taking them out in a few weeks!
