The Weekend Haul




I decided to take this past Saturday off from studying, and I don’t think I could have chosen a better day. It was warm without being hot – perfect for walking around Georgetown and down by the waterfront. After a little hair maintenance [more blonde!], I met up with Faith to celebrate her birthday a week late.

What happens when two beauty/fashion obsessed bloggers get together? Lots, that’s what. There were a lot of “yes – you need that’s” thrown around, which I think lead to a few very necessary purchases. Right, Faith?? 😉

JCrew was on my list of stores to hit up because, I mean, 30% off – always a good thing. I already knew what I wanted to check out – I find that when I go into stores with a plan/item in mind, I wander around/spend less [also a good thing when on a budget]. I picked up the above cyprus sandals because 1. they are very comfortable; 2. they go with mostly everything I own; and 3. they are right on trend with the whole slides thing going on right now.

A shopping trip isn’t a shopping trip without a stop into Sephora, where I headed to the Clinique display to swatch two products I have been lusting after for the hundredth time. The Chubby Stick in Heaping Hazelnut and Lip Pop in Melon Pop came home with me – two really pretty, wear-with-anything shades.

Last, but certainly not least, Madewell happened. I have been on the hunt for sunnies with clear frames, but instead purchased the above glasses. I tried them on, Faith told me I needed them, and that was that.

-I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day, and that we all take a moment today to remember our fallen soldiers –

      Yes I am sooo happy I picked them up! They have a few different color options, but I loved how different these were from anything I own!

    I really want to try those new clinique lipsticks. They look absolutely amazing, and are getting rave reviews. Nothing quite like a weekend shopping trip to pick you up!
