Sunday Shopping!

Let's start this Sunday Shopping with my favorite purchase I've made in a long time, 
I got the red Doc Martens I've been wanting for a couple years now!
Scored them at Nordstrom Rack for under $70!
Merry Christmas to me!

I've already worn them like 10 times 
which is saying a lot since I've probably gotten dressed 15 times since buying them... 
pretty good ratio!

I got the necklace on the left after a targeted Instagram ad hit me just right,
its from Alefbet Jewelry, wore it HERE
I like it but I wish it came with the colors in the picture, 
apparently they are all different, I wish I had the yellow evil eye in mine.
I am also interested in the dice version...

I went thrifting the other day with Little Charlie on my hip,
as soon as I walked in I spotted these Halloween MootsiesTootsies 
and immediately was like "WHAT SIZE ARE THESE"
They were MY SIZE!
I have been looking for these to complete my Halloween outfits for years now!
I even had them in my "likes" on Postmark but never pulled the trigger!
The Goodwill Gods were listening!

Also spotted this strawberry teapot, loved it but have no use for it

Loved this little pink couch at Hobby Lobby too but did not take it home:

I love this dish towel that my sister Bianca got us for Christmas
πŸ˜‚ 

Speaking of my sister Bianca, 
how cute is this chair that she bought At Home when she came to visit?!
Love the mid-century modern vibes, 
living vicariously though her with this one

I shared my super fun and successful Off The Chain Studios popup at Hunt & Orchard,
did you really think I didn't buy anything did you?!
But I was trying to be good...
I LOVE everything I got!

I ordered this sweater from Forever 21 last week, 
I love the mix prints- animal print, πŸ“ , drips & πŸ‘️ 
It is so soft and comfy, I love it!


I've been wearing my new plaid "Selena" glasses for a couple months now 
but I wanted to also share my new "Kai" sunnies from Vlook,
I like them, I wish the arms of them had some bend to them, 
they can get uncomfortable 

I wanted to share this gift that I was sent from @ashtastical_ πŸ”› Instagram,
it is a long story involving a Kika Vargas dress, 
but I am obsessed with this tote:

SO many goodies!
πŸ₯° 

Another gift that I got is this pouch that my amazing friend Holly sent me,
I AM OBSESSED. 
It is like it was made for me!
& it is the perfect size for my travel makeup.
It is a favorite!
So many goodies!

But there has been some regrets & returns lately too

I love the mixed print sweater I got from Forever 21
but these two pieces did not work for me.
I really wanted that abstract cardigan but it was wayyyy too big,
I am not sure what I was thinking 
but with these breastfeeding boobs, this was a hell no...

I accidentally ordered these Coach Liza Booties on Poshmark
it is a long story but I don't like the way they fit so I will be reselling them

My loss could be your gain?

Humble Beauty Opinion #109 + #110 :: December 2022 & January 2023


Last Saturday of the month = Humble Beauty Opinion! 
Catchup!- December 2022 & January 2023
My monthly subscriptions, purchases, reviews, wishlists & empties!

As per usual lets start with my December subscription to Ipsy!
The bag it self was eh this month, I haven't been excited about the actual Ipsy bag in a while now...

So far I am enjoying the Gloss Moderne hair mask 
& the Polaar "Ice Pure Gentle Scrub with Arctic Cotton" that face scrub smells so good, 
like a familiar scent, maybe a Victoria's Secret body spray? 
I can't quite place it but I am enjoying it!

The Sophia + Mabelle "So Festive- The Stack" is pretty too, 
will be nice for Valentine's Day 

Also picked up the Brown-Eyed Baby Set & Moonlit Skincare PM Pimple Patch Patch from Ipsy:

This really made me laugh...

& my January Ipsy:
The bag itself was, again, eh, just not feeling the fake fur or color combo

I have yet to try a lot of these products 
but I did try the leave in conditioner from Head Kandy and I am loving it! 

I also finally used the ethique St. Clements solid shampoo that I got from my friend Olivia, 
it was okay, I just don't think I am a solid shampoo kinda gal

My hubby picked up some goodies from Trader Joes &
 I have been enjoying all of them!
You will see lot of them in the empties already!

⬇️


This tweet from @GHardstark is so true.

Got some goodies on my monthly makeup wishlist!

I haven't purchased a makeup palette in a while now, 
because honestly I barely wear makeup anymore...
but this one is so pretty from Urban Decay Naked x Robin Eisenberg:

Love the greens

These two Colourpop shades are so beautiful too- "mountain lion" & "in the saddle"

I am also curious about Colourpop "Free Refills" program 
such an interesting idea, 
I wish their "Paper Tiger" shade was included... love that color!

I am intrigued by this super paired down cleansing and skin care routine, 
Step 1: Dial "Antibacterial" Hand Soap
Step 2: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Cream
Step 3: Goldbalm Age Defense Hand Cream
I might be getting these products and trying this out... 
but I have a lot of products to get though first!

I am also going to try out this nail exfoliation routine, 

& am intrigued by this Vanicream face cream

Am also intrigued by this Azora perfume as seen on tawniontiktok
would love to just smell it... πŸ‘ƒ 

There have been a few Lights Lacquer releases lately, 
but if I'm being honest, none that I need to add to my collection...

This was the "after party trio"

it's pretty but I feel like I have these colors already 

🀷🏻‍♀️



This month's empties, what I used up, loved, hated  
& all my humble opinions in between:

December
bath: Suave "Rosemary & Mint"- I like this shampoo, I like the way it smells and can't beat that price | Scentsy "Winterberry Apple Tea"- I got this as a gift from my friend Renee and I enjoyed it, smells sweet and cozy | Revlon Colorsilk "34 Deep Burgundy" x2- my go to hair color | CeraVe Baby Moisturizing Lotion- we use this for Little Charlie's eczema, not sure if it works but maybe? | Origins "flower fusion" in rose & orange- I enjoy these, they smell so nice | Dove "sensitive skin" x3- a classic gentle soap | St. Ives "Fresh Skin"- I have used these for years, it is harsh but I love it | Clinique "all about clean"- I liked this face wash, not sure it is worth purchasing but a good cleanser | Clinique "moisture surge" overnight mask- I liked this too but felt pretty basic, not a noticeable change in my skin | Sunday Riley "Good Genes"- this is good, I think it is worth the hype, can burn though | Goldfadden MD "Detox Hydrating Gel"- I am not usually a gel moisturizer kinda gal but this one is pretty good | Clinique "7 Day Scrub Cream"- I liked this, I think it's the perfect amount of scrub | Trader Joe's "All-in-one Facial Cleanser"- my husband loves this, it is a great basic wash | ethique St. Clements solid shampoo- I got this from my friend Olivia but I am not a fan of solid shampoo, I need more lathering | Secret Out Last Sweat & Odor- a good basic deodorant, perfect travel size for your handbag | Summer's Eve Cleansing Cloths- these are perfect for a little refresh while traveling | beauty360 Pocket Design Premium Cotton Pads- I got these when I couldn't find cotton balls, I do not like these, I feel like they just moved around my makeup, not a fan | CVS Cotton Swabs- a good basic 

beauty: Becca Ultimate Coverage "Linen"- I got this from TjMaxx very high coverage, didn't love it, happy it is done | Purlisse Ageless Glow Serum BB Cream in "Fair"- this is a good BB Cream, good coverage | Maybelline "Age Rewind" 150 Neutralizer- I LOVE this stuff, will repurchase for ever | Almay "Sensitive Skin"- this is my usual deodorant, works for me and nice and cheap | 10/10 Optics Eyeglass Spray- getting better at cleaning my glasses, this is a good one from an amazing optical store in NYC! | Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula "Message Cream for Stretch Marks"- this stuff is so thick, not sure it does anything but used it anyways | Bath & Body Works "Stress Relief"- I love the way this smells but it is not very moisturizing, leaves you still dry | Spenser & Jensen Pumpkin Spice body butter from Lidl- I love this, makes you smell like a candle in the best way | Ahava "Dead Sea Crystal Osmotic x6 Facial Serum"- I liked this, not a big enough sample to see if it works | Ahava "Osmotic Concentrate Smoothing Lotion"- I liked this, smells familiar, like a scent from my childhood... confusing but I enjoyed it |  Commodity "Velvet"- I didn't love this on me but I sprayed it on my sweaters and I enjoyed it this way | wet n' wild "brulΓ©e"- this is my favorite, will forever repurchase | Verify 20/20 Eye Cream- a good basic eye cream nothing to write home about | MAC Stack Mascara- I loved this, such a good mascara, would recommend |  Lower East Side "Dark Brown"- this is so dark and wet but I liked it when it dried a little, lasted a long time | Colourpop "Try Me"- I wanted to love this, still looking for a red eyeliner, this was too dry and not dark enough on the eyes

candles: Yankee Candle "Balsam Cedar"- my hubby has to get me a Christmas tree scented candle, that was our agreement to getting a fake tree, this one was okay but didn't have good scent carry | Candle-Lite "Evening Fireside Glow" x2 from Lidl- love these, such a cozy scent | Candle-Lite Balsam Forest from Lidl- this is a good Christmas tree scent, especially for the price | Candle-Lite Creamy Vanilla Swirl- liked this scent too, not too sweet | Candle-Lite Mahogany Woods- I love this scent, nice cozy with a cologne scent | Trader Joe's Cedar Balsam- this is a good Christmas Tree scent for small areas, perfect in our downstairs bathroom | Trade Joe's Cranberry Pine- I liked this too, a sweeter version of a Christmas Tree Scent | Trader Joe's Fresh Currant- liked this sweet spicy scent for our bathroom too

& January 
bath & beauty: CVS Prenatal Gummies- these were my favorite but they recently changed the formula and they are not as good | CVS D3 vitamins- I've been on these for the last couple years and I think it does help me not get sick as often | Dove Sensitive Skin- a forever classic | Silk Hydro razor replacement- I really like these razors, happy I got off the Venus train and onto these | Revlon "34 Deep Burgundy"- you already know this is my fave | Aveeno Baby eczema therapy- I think this helps Little Charlie's eczema but I don't know anymore... I will be doing a dedicated post about our struggles with his skin for a Mommy Mondaze post | Schick face razor- I really like these for taking off the hair on my face to help the application of my makeup | Purlisse BB Cream- yup, went through another, I guess I wore more makeup than I thought last month | Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist- I think this could be good but I prefer the UD All Nighter | Origins "Ginger Burst"- I like this little shower sample smells nice

candles: Cozy Nights from Target- this is my favorite scent of the season, will continue to purchase year after year | Yankee Candle "Tree Farm Festival"- again not too impressed with these, no scent carry!
