Shop 'Till You Drop

Recently, I started going on a sort of shopping spree that should probably stop with the Modcloth purchase I plan on making within the next few days. My problem is for a few months (Jan. - end of April) I didn't really have a steady full-time job and I was extremely frugal with my spending. However, now that I've been working at Nordstrom for almost 2 whole months (I had to go into work today for FIVE minutes to do my 45 day review...seriously?) and received some nice paychecks that not only covered my loan payments but left me some extra for fun things, I've been going a little overboard on those fun things. I'm not mad at myself though because I am a good saver and I don't often get the chance to splurge :D

Yesterday a friend and I did a little retail therapy and I bought some stuff at Sephora which was partially covered by the gift card my little brother gave to me as a belated birthday present! I had remembered reading on Orchid Grey's blog that she uses Urban Decay's Big Fatty Mascara. Not only do I love her style and her septum piercing that I've been considering for about the past 2 years but she describes herself as a minimalist when it comes to makeup which, I definitely am too. If not for my gift card I probably would have been a little more hesitant to purchase it because I am not one for spending $20 on mascara but I tried it today and it seems worth the extra bucks considering it's not all over my face making me look like an asian raccoon.

I also bought a few things from forever21 and this polka dot top from delias which I didn't realize was on sale :D It's different from my usual style so if anyone has tips on how I should style it I'm open to suggestions!

The last purchase I will bore you guys with is from Whimsy & Spice and it's probably the best of them all! I bought espresso brownies, earl grey cookies and whisky sandwich cookies, all of which are delicious! As I mentioned in the last post, I recommend any of the items mentioned and I will probably order more considering I still want to try the cashew chili biscotti :D


  1. You'll have to keep me posted on your thoughts on the mascara, i'm always on the look out for something new and great!

  2. So far so good! I haven't had a problem with it running all over my face or anything :)
