Collective Haul & Give-Away Sneak Peek

Hello dolls.  I have been feeling under the weather lately, so I have been a bit behind in taking pictures.  Here is the backlog of things that I still have to photograph, swatch and post. 
I feel overwhelmed just looking at it.  I have decided to take all the pictures and then just smush them all into a collective haul post.  Most of these items were bought from when I was in Milwaukee for a friend's wedding and my trip to the Outlet mall in Baraboo, WI. 

Up first- my buys from a fragrance outlet store at the Tanger Outlet mall in Baraboo.  I was in the CCO and the lady told me that the fragrance store across from them also sold make up so I made a beeline to them after I paid for my purchases.  I was glad I stopped in.  They were selling NYX lip liners for $1 each!  I picked out 14.  Yes, that's right.  I said 14.  lol. Two are doubles that I am giving away.
 NYX lipliners
From left to right, here are the 12 names:  Plush Red, Hot Red, Prune, Fuchsia, Bloom, Hot Pink, Pinky, Rose, Flower, Coral, Natural, Burgundy.  

I am giving away Plush Red & Bloom in my 50 follower give-away.  :)

I also picked up this NYX blush for $1 in Taupe.  I thought that it would make a good contouring color because it is matte.  If not, it would also make a good shadow.

I also stopped in Claires while I was there and picked up some items with the 10 for $10 deal.  Here are some of the things I got.
 Haul from Claire's
 Halloween False Lashes
 2 nail polishes
 bobby pins
 Nail art stickers
 Ribbon Headband
I picked up two of the false lashes packages for Halloween because they look kind of fun.  I will also be giving away the bobby pins in my give-away.  They come in such a convenient, match-stick style case.  So cute.  I also bought another set of the earrings for my give-away as well. 

Next up, The Icing at Mayfair Mall in Milwaukee.  Here is my small, modest haul.
 Icing Nail Polish in Gimme Some Glitter
 Make up Brushes-buy 1 get 1 half off @ $6.50 each
 Kabuki brush
 Angled brush
These are super soft and are modeled after the EcoTools brushes in drugstores.  I don't have any of the EcoTools but these Icing brushes are super silky soft.

I also stopped at Forever21 to pick up some accessories.
 False lashes- I bought 2 sets of each style
 False lashes w/rhinestones $1
 Love & Beauty nail polish from Forever21
 Forever21 embellished feather necklace
I love this necklace.  I really like the small turquoise stone set in it.  I wore this to school the other day and got tons of compliments on it.  

Next up, H&M accessory buys.  I like this over-sized black onyx ring.  I bought it for around $5.  I have also been into these ribbon head bands.  This one was also around $5.

 Black leather headband from H&M
That's it for this collective haul.  Now, I'm sitting here looking at the mess that I made on my floor and getting overwhelmed at the thought of cleaning it all up.  haha.



  1. I love the bows of the nail art stickers, I will have to see if I can find those at my claire's! And the $1 nyx items are a steal, I'm jealous!
    Hope you'll feel better soon :)
