Hi guys! Just wanted to pop in for a short post today and share some pictures of the “beauty” stuff I bought over Winter Break. I think I was pretty good actually! I only bought three different teas, a few key pieces of clothing from the YesStyle store in San Francisco and a new winter coat besides the stuff I have to show you today. Oh. And a MBD Sasa order that’s still coming in the mail teehee.
|Lush Dream Cream body moisturizer and Fresh Face Masks in Cosmetic Warrior, Brazen Honey & B.B. Seaweed|
If you’ve been reading for a while or follow me on Twitter, you’ll know how much I adore Lush and how much I hate that there isn’t a store in San Diego! I stopped by the Union Square store on my SF shopping trip with SO and his younger brother (who were both quite patient and well behaved during the trip, I have to add!) and got the Dream Cream and three of their Fresh Face Masks. Lulu recommended the Dream Cream for my eczema (on my right arm, not really bad, but bad enough to be irritating) so I asked SO to bring me a sample when he was in Seattle about a month ago. I positively loved the sample – it almost totally eliminated my eczema patch in two days, so I had to stock up on a full-size (I’ll be reviewing this in the next month or so?). I am also positively in love with the idea of Lush’s Fresh Face Masks and so the SA helped me pick out two in addition to my beloved B.B. Seaweed (review here). I’ve actually already used up all of Cosmetic Warrior and Brazen Honey, so I’ll have reviews of those soon. I froze B.B. Seaweed like K suggested, so I can happily enjoy that after midterms this quarter. :D
|Sinful Secret Admirer, UFO, Nail Junkie, Sally Hansen Diamond Strength 04 Royal Icing||Hard Candy Lava, OPI Shimmery-Chic, Essie Love, Beverly Hills|
I also got a chance to go to a Walgreens! There is actually one pretty near where we live in San Diego… but it’s kind of out of the way and not really where SO and I shop for groceries so I’ve only sent him to get TheFaceShop sheet masks for me once in the past, and haven’t ever been there myself. SO was kind enough to take me to Walgreens (I forget what we actually went there for) and I picked up three Sinful polishes in Secret Admirer, UFO and Nail Junkie after seeing Diana’s swatches. I also picked up Sally Hansen Royal Icing since I wanted to do that snowflake nail art manicure from a few weeks back. When I got back to San Diego, I hit Ulta and Ross for the after-Christmas sales and picked up OPI Shimmery-Chic and Essie Love, Beverly Hills. I also found Hard Candy Lava while at Walmart grocery shopping with a friend. Unfortunately they were out of Mr. Wrong which I really want too, but my friend said she’d keep an eye out for it since she shops there more often. =)
|Mamegoma 2010 Calendar from Mai Do, His & Hers Bunny keychain & Bunny Stud earrings from Apple Jewelry|
I also went to Santana Row for lunch with SO and an old debate friend (the friend insisted I drive his brand new Volvo on the way there – it was my first time driving on CA highways!!!! But we got there in one piece and both he and SO said I did surprisingly well for not having driven in about 2-3 years LOL….) and so of course we had to stop by Mai Do. I was good though and I only bought a Mamegoma calendar for myself (and another cute thing for a friend). The last two pictures can’t really be considered part of my “Winter Break haul” since I actually bought them about a month before then, but they were sitting in my mailbox when I got back to San Diego. If you follow me on Twitter they might look familiar though LOL. I bought a His & Hers bunny keychain set and a pair of suuuuuuper cute bunny studs from Apple Jewelry on Ebay. She carries the CUTEST cheap Asian jewelry. The shipping takes quite a while, but I think it’s really worth it. I paid less than $10 for both items shipped. And I love them!! SO is grudgingly carrying the bow-tie bunny on his keys right now. TEEHEEHEE.
Did you guys get anything fun over the holidays?
