So I'm sure that you are really, really sick of me posting hauls. I'm starting to feel embarrassed when posting them. You probably think all I do is shop. Well, I do love to shop, so I guess that's partially true. I promise I am going to start doing some reviews on some of the products that I haul. I don't want you to think, I'm just showing off. However, I do love to show off the things I get, especially if I get a good deal!! Well let me just go ahead and show you what I got!

At Ulta, I stumbled upon a great deal on the St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse. The mousse is normally $32 on it's own. I got this set with the mousse(the same 120ml that is $32), the glove($6.50), body polish, and body moisturizer. If you've wanted to try the product, I would suggest Ulta, for this set.

Then I picked up 2 Essie Polishes, and another NYX butter gloss (I love these glosses).

My husband took me shopping for my anniversary present, since he says he never knows what to get me. So I picked out a new Vera Bradley bag. I love these colors together, and this is the perfect size!

Went to MAC to get Fix+, but ended up leaving with the new Mineralize foundation. So far I'm really liking it!

Last, but definitely not least, I hit up B&BW Semi-Annual Sale. I definitely didn't need any more hand soap, but for $3 each, I couldn't pass them up! I probably should have passed up a few, I really didn't need 7. Then I found these room sprays for $3 in my favorite spring scents, so I bought a couple of my two absolute favorites, and one Honeysuckle. I bought another Lilac Blossom, because I just used all of my last one, and they were 50% off. Finally, I had a coupon for a free travel signature scent. I also had a coupon for $10 off a purchase of $40. So for all of my B&BW stuff, I spent $36. It was a pretty good deal if you ask me!

Well that's all for now!!

If you haven't heard of INFLUENSTER before, you definitely need to read this post. Influenster is a company that sends out products (for free) to influential people (Bloggers, YouTubers, ect.). You don't have to even have a large following to qualify for review programs. The other inportant aspect of influenster is the reviews. It's a great place to go to look for reviews on products you are interested in trying. If you want to qualify for a review program, you need to be active on the site (writing reviews, asking questions, participating in surveys, ect.). You are not guaranteed to qualify, but the more you participate on Influenster, the better your chance.

I was recently chosen for the Influenster Spring Fever Voxbox. Yay!

This is probably the most exciting thing for me. I love chopsticks, balms, lip treatments, ect. Anything that is moisturizing and has little to no color. This is really moisturizing, it has a yummy apple smell, and just a bit of color. Perfect for me!

I love secret deodorant. Wish I hadn't just bought a new one, but oh well. I will definitely use this!

I'm not a fan of these at all. I bought a set probably a year ago and they were too flimsy, they bent so bad. I have short nails too, so the sticky part was too far up the nail,  hairs and lint were getting stuck under my nail.

I haven't used this yet, but my hair is pretty flat, so hopefully this will help!

I didn't think this little cake was that good. I only had one bite, and then passed it on to my husband. He like it though. I think it was too peanut buttery for me.

Well that's all for the Influensten Spring Fever VoxBox! Let me know if you want a full review on anything!!

Hard to believe I've already got my June Julep Maven Box! May just flew by. I absolutely adore the colors I got this month!


These are my nails from Sunday. I was practicing with my new dotting tools. Let's just say, I need more practice! haha

I can not believe that it has been 1 year since I started my blog! I also can't believe that I stuck with it a whole year. I had a few stints where I was MIA, but for the most part, I blogged pretty consistently. I have to say, my makeup collection has probably doubled, but I've found some great products, learned awesome tips, and had a blast. I want to say, "Thank You" to all of my readers and followers! I really do appreciate you taking your time to read and comment. It means the world to me!! Here's to another year of blogging!

A month and a half ago, my husband and I took a little weekend getaway to Kansas City. He had been out of town working and it was our first weekend back together. I guess he felt bad about leaving me behind, because he completely spoiled me! I can't believe I forgot to post all the goodies that I got, but it was a busy end of April and all of May. 

(I took all of the photos with my phone, because I couldn't wait for my camera battery to charge before digging into my goodies. Tell me you've been in my shoes!)

My and my Husband headed to Kansas City! I'm wearing the scarf he got me while he was working out of town. I love it! He knows me so well!

My first time at Charming Charlie...I got 12 pairs of shoes.
I should mention they were buy 1 get 2 free.
I should also mention, all the shoes I bought were $1.00.
So I got 3 pairs of shoes for $1.00.
So the grand total for 12 pairs of shoes was $4.22.
I should also probably mention that I bought these to resell.
I sold 4 pairs for $10.00 each, and 1 pair for $7.50. Total profit $43.28.
I gave one pair to my spoiled rotten Niece.
Still have 6 pairs to sell/give away.

Topshop Louise Grey cream eyeshadows::I bought these on Ebay, but they arrive while we were gone, so I included them in the picture.
Taylor Swift Wonderstruck::$15.00 at TJ Maxx
Nars Set::$35.00 at Nordstrom Rack
Lush Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly
Lush Rock Star Soap::My all time favorite Lush product!
Lush Soap::I can't remember which one this is. I don't have it near me at the moment, but i just got a small slice to try.

Sonia Kashuk travel makeup bag::I've been traveling quite often, and not of my makeup bags were big enough, this one is perfect!!
Sonia Kashuk Spooly Brush::I don't have one if you can believe it, and since I've been obsession over my eyebrows lately, I needed this!
Sonia Kashuk Eye Pencil Sharpener::I only had really old pencil sharpeners, and desperately needed a new one. This thing is great!

It even has an extra little bag inside.

ELF lotion wipes::I was really curious about these, still haven't tried them yet though.

Went to the CCO in KC and picked up tow things.
MAC eyeshadow in Cork
MAC MSF in Lightscapade::I really wanted this when it came out with the Hayley Williams collection, but ended up finding it at the CCO for a discounted price!

 I am so obsessed with this, I've used it every day since I got it! It's a gorgeous highlighter!

Besides all these goodies, I practically got a whole new wardrobe! I seriously love that my husband spent all his hard earned money on me. He just loves to spoil me. I'm so lucky to have him!

Let me know if you want a review on anything!!

The JULEP website is my weakness! I probably need to stop the emails from them, because they always get my attention. They were recently advertising their new May Mystery Box. It promises $70-$200 worth of products for $25. How do you say NO to that? They also said that there would be an extra polish in this box to share, or in my case keep. While I was on purchasing that I glanced at the Maven Exclusive area, and saw that some people got lipsticks in their May box. I of course needed to try the lipsticks, so I had to order a different May Box than I received. So $45 later, I got a lot of great stuff!!

This is a different May Maven Box than what I received


Lady in Red-Sweet Lorraine-Charleston

These are all 6 of the nail polishes in my May Mystery Box 
($15 x 6 = $90 value & I paid $25)


I'm so very happy with my Julep purchase!

So I didn't have big plans for Memorial Weekend, except we planned to go to the lake one day. I needed to get some sunscreen and when I went to Target to get sunscreen, I accidentally picked up a few more things. So I thought I would show you what I got!

-Hawaiian Tropic Silk hydration Sunscreen-
-Hawaiian Tropic Lip Balm-
-Loreal Nail Polish in The Palace Life (on clearance for $2.48)-
-Dove Clinical Protection Deodorant (with travel size, on clearance for $5.45)-
-Vaseline Lip Therapy-
-Jergens Natural Glow-
-Miliani Eyeshadow in Beach Sand-
-Revlon Lash Potion-

This color is so pretty, but it's a little sheer. I think it will be perfect though for summer!

So excited I got this color. I loved the entire Versailles Romance collection, but I couldn't justify buying the whole collection. However, it was on clearance, so I couldn't help myself!

Let me know if you want any reviews on anything, I would love to do it!
