Hey guys! So my birthday is this Saturday, and I got an email from Sephora reminding me to pick up my free birthday gift. So naturally, I made my way out to the store and spent a bunch of unnecessary money, but hey… you only live once, right? I also went to a few other stores, so I decided to make this a collective haul, since I haven’t done one of those in a while. So enjoy! (Also, I had to use my iPhone to take these photos because my camera died, so please don’t hate me for the terrible photo quality!)
Can we just talk about Alexa Chung for a second? I’m completely and utterly obsessed with this woman. (I have a Pinterest board dedicated solely to her). But really, she’s classy, fashionable, wise beyond her years and downright gorgeous. But not the typical Hollywood blonde bombshell gorgeous, she’s uniquely stunning in her own way and I think she’s redefining what it means to be a woman in the 21st century, and I really, really love that. This book is all about her — her beliefs, her fashion, how she became the person she is today, what she believes in, etc. Plus, it’s just a really cute book with photos and doodles. It’s like reading her diary.
I picked up these three Brandy Melville tops today and I. Love. Them. I’m obsessed with floral and unique prints/designs, but I absolutely love this crescent moon top. Since my last name is Eclipse, I’ve always loved everything involving moons, suns and constellations of any sort.
I had over 600 Sephora points so I redeemed this Alterna Hair Care kit! Honestly, I’ve never even heard of this brand or this kit, but I’m, excited to use it because since starting this new medicine, my hair is just not doing well at all. I’ll keep you posted on this!
I’ve been obsessed with lipstick lately. Obsessed. And when I walked into Sephora, this was the first thing I saw and I grabbed it (and contemplated buying all of the colors). Bite is a great brand that makes all-natural, high quality products. Plus, this matte nude color (Glacé) is absolutely gorgeous.
This was the free birthday gift (yes, this is it…) But hey, at least Makeup Forever makes the best mascara!
You know I’m always searching for new facial cleansers (check out my skincare routine here!), and recently I was turned onto Purity face washes by a few YouTubers. It’s also all-natural and it smells like heaven.
Lastly, I picked up this new Porefessional (Okay, it’s not that new, but it’s new to me!). I usually buy the original pore minimizer, but I figured I would try this powder version out and see if it makes a difference.
That’s all for this early birthday haul! I hope you enjoyed seeing all the things I waste my money on (haha), have a great Thursday!
