Textured Florals

So many textured florals in the outfit! 
Some of my faves! 

What I Wore: glasses- c/o Proopticals, lips- MAC "Chatterbox", necklace- Kate Spade, cardigan- hand me down from mom, tank- Lela Rose x Target & Neiman Marcus, skirt- vintage, flats- Target 

Other things I have been loving,
Last Saturday of the month means: 
Humble Beauty Opinion #11!
Picked up some things I've been looking for on Amazon to add to a book order to qualify for free shipping {that is what I tell myself at least...}
Real Techniques Travel Essential Set {$14} been wanting this "Multi- Task Brush" and loving the shadow brush in this set! / OPI Gwen Stefani Holiday 2014 Collection "Gone Plaid" love this green color! / Sally Hansen Nail Growth "Forbidden Fudge" been searching for this in stores with no luck- excited to try it! / OPI Gwen Stefani Holiday 2014 Collection "Comet In The Sky" pretty top coat! 

Another beauty development this month was the seasonal Walmart beauty box,
so much good stuff for $5! 
Loving the Nicki Minaj "Pink Friday" scent & the Loreal balm in "Pink me up"
& I already know I love the Dove oxygen products- I really need to get full sizes of these!

The Walmart beauty box helped with my not as thrilling Ipsy bag, 
its good just not great. 
Not sure about the eye shadow color but the gloss is pretty, haven't tried the rest yet...

I did redeem my Ipsy points for a full size of the bareMinerals 5:1 shadow in "Delicate Moss",
so far so good, love my other one in "Divine Wine" too! 

After some outfit pictures that brought to light my lack of brows "on flick" 
{as my students would say... at least I think that is how it goes}
I ventured to Ulta to get benefits "gimme brow", 
I was shocked at how small the container was for the price tag {$22} but figured I would try it out. 

Also picked up this NYX blue mascara which I am loving for a little unexpected pop of color!

Then I watched beautybroadcastx on youtube talk about the Hard Candy Brows Now! From Walmart
& I knew I had to try this $6 alternative,
So happy I did! I love it so much more! I returned the "gimme brow" & swear by this stuff!
Also finished up some products this month: 
Thann body wash {smells amazing!} / DHC Eye Bright {very small sample but I enjoyed the jell formula} / Sucrets {best for my sore throats} / Willa face wipes {not a huge fan of face wipes and these got all dried up} / Pumpkin Cheesecake Candle from Target {love it but very very sweet smell} / Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal {lasted forever not a huge fan} / Revlon hair color in Burgundy {my favorite right now! Already want to do another one!} / American Crew Power Cleanser shampoo {have a whole bottle I liked the sample we will see how it goes with a repeated usage} / St. Ives Apricot Scrub {holy grail face wash LOVE this stuff been using since middle school} / Colgate Optic White toothpaste {pretty good I guess...}
Urban Decay "All Nighter" Setting Spray {love this stuff need another one!} / Urban Decay eye shadow potion sample set {still working on a few of the samples but so far so good, the shimmer is very shinny though...} / NYC Sun n' Bronze in "Hampton's Radiance" {already working on a new one!} Jergens Ultra Healing {another holy grail product have been using this for years} / Laneige sample bb creams from ipsy {still working on mixing a few of the darker colors to use them up- interesting yet pleasant smell & pretty good coverage!}

Speaking of baths & such, 
this is what I saw when I got out of the shower today:

So damn cute!
