It's not the end, but a pause ...

Recently, a friend of mine accepted a job in a town about 2.5 hrs away. We all went to a restaurant called Kabuki and had a little dinner for him.

I'm really torn because I've been really good friends with him for years and recently we had a falling out. We still talk, but it's not the same and we are basically strangers. It makes me sad to think about it.

I'm also hard headed too, so I won't be the first one to say I'm sorry. It doesn't help either that he's selfish and only cares about himself. So he definitely won't ever be the first one to say he's sorry. I wish him all the best luck at his new job!

Brush Cleaning?

So I bought a new set of Crown Brushes and I deep cleaned them before using them. I've bought a lot of brushes and cleaned a lot of them, but I've never had them bleed like these have. The larger blush brushes, all bleed black dye when I washed them with my cleaner.

I use Dr. Bronner's soap along with my Sephora purifying brush shampoo. I don't really like the smell of the Dr. Bronner's soap. The kind I got has a heavy peppermint smell (they come in a lot of different ones), so I usually wash it again with my Sephora shampoo.

I tried to take a picture of the black dye coming off the brush, but it was very hard holding the camera and the brush at the same time.

Anyone else have this happen with a new set of make up brushes?

What had 2 thumbs and is a sucker for a deal. *Points to me*

So I was browsing a couple of my deal websites and came across a sale at Gilly Hicks. If you don't know the brand, it's apart of the Abercrombie and Fitch branches. This one is just like AE's Aerie. It carries undergarments and sleeping apparel.

They had a huge clearance on bras (a bunch of them were only $12.90) and panties (which were all $2.90).

I couldn't resist a deal AND they offered free shipping when you spent $25!! The names of the bras and panties and weird. They're named after people?

Haul: Target

Can anyone go to Target without buying a whole bunch of nonsense!? I can't do it. Everytime I go, I spend an arm and a leg. 

I'm planning on going to Las Vegas and LA in a couple of weeks and I really wanted a few new bathing suits. I couldn't decide what I wanted so I ended up getting three! I didn't buy any bottoms because I have a ton of them, but I did get some tops.

The first 2 tops are black and pretty similar. I like buying tops that can be worn as strapless too because I HATE tan lines.

I like it when the tops have these clasps instead of tying

The second top I got was white with teal bows. The white top makes me look tanner when I'm by the pool.

I also got two new dresses. The first one is by Mossimo Supply Co. It's a racerback tank dress. I got it in yellow because I found that I don't own anything that's really yellow.

The next dress I got was by Xhilaration. It's a floral printed cover up. I like the length of it and I can either wear it to the pool or to run errands.

Wait, wait, WAIT ... Smashbox makes BB Creams!?

So the newest fad in the beauty world right now are BB Creams. If you have no idea what BB Creams are, I refer you to this article here. It explains it a lot better than I can.

I told my mom about this 'new' trend and she laughed bc apparently this craze has been going on in Asia for AGES and it has just NOW caught on in the US. She always laughs bc we are always behind, well according to her. 

I just got this email like 10 secs ago and I had to share! Smashbox is introducing a new line of BB Creams. But I do believe that it's only available on QVC. I would def watch it to see what the hype is about.

FOTD: Summer nights!

Recently, one of my friends came into town to visit and we went out for drinks. I really miss her and I hope she comes back to visit me soon!

What's in my Shower?

So I've been seeing a lot of these posts on youtube and blogs and I really wanted to do one. I just moved into an apartment and already my bathroom looks like a war zone. I'm only going to be in this apt for a month so I don't have a lot of things unpacked BUT I still managed to stick a bunch of stuff in the shower.

The new apt I'm moving into has a bathtub and I actually bought a tension pole shower caddy.  It's by Better Bath and I paid $16.99 for it at Ross. I actually saw the same shower caddy here at Linens N Things.

There are 2 little shelves in the stand up shower and this is the first shelf. I have my Organix Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner and my Formula 10.0.6 Best Face Forward face cleanser.

I LOVE the smell of the shampoo but I don't think it's renewing at all. It actually dries out my hair more than anything else. I just bought the cleanser recently and so I don't want to give my opinion until I've used it a little bit more. I got this cleanser at CVS but I know you can also get this cleanser at Ulta.

This is the other shelf in the shower. I have another set of hair products. A little while ago, Target sent me a sample of Pantene and I was skeptical about it because I've used it before and I didn't like the results. But after the sample, I loved the new formula! It left my hair super soft and smelling great.

This is the top of the shower. I have the Clean and Clear Morning Burst Body Wash in Mango and Papaya. I LOVE this wash. I don't think it cleans me better than other body washes, but the smell is so delicious! The consistency of the body wash is super thick too, so a little goes a long way.

I also have a little caddy above the shower head. It used to be in my old bathroom and was a better fit there than in this new bathroom. It kind of gets in the way of the water flow.

I have 2 face cleansers and 2 body washes in here. I have Softsoaps Spa Radiant and Joico Skin Luxe in Sweet Pomagrante for body washes. I have Garnier Nutritioniste Nutri-Pure Microbead Cream Scrub and Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Cleanser.

The Joico body wash smells so good! It smells like cake frosting!

 The bottom of the shelf had my foot scubber and my Venus razor.

You guys are going to laugh, but I also have 2 different sets of shampoos and conditioners on the floor of the shower. I have the Matrix Amplify Volumizing System Color XL smapoo and conditioner. This was my original shampoo and conditioner that I used religiously for a whole year. 

The other set of hair products is by BioLuxe. I believe this is only available at CVS. I really liked the formula of the conditioner so I bought the whole set to try. It makes your hair really soft and shiny.

 This is what the shower looks like, well without the floor being pictured. 


This is the set of brushes I bought off a couple of weeks ago. I haven't used them yet because I haven't washed them yet, but I just wanted to show you each brush up close.

So a while ago I ordered a bunch of Crown brushes on and they finally came in the mail today!!

I got one set of brushes and a single eyeshadow brush. 

This is the single eyeshadow brush. It's called the  Italian Badger Chisel Fluff. AND the best part was that it was only $2.50

This is the set of brushes. I paid $37.50 for them. I heard that these brushes are just as good as Sigma brushes, so I had to try them out. I'm going to make a separate post showing all the brushes.
