Some shopping I did

I love hauls, but I wasn’t sure this qualified as a haul. I recently made some purchases from Sephora, TJ Maxx, and Forever 21, but it’s a few stores and I really only got a few things.

I was needing a refill on my favorite concealer so I decided to do some online Sephora shopping and we all know how that leads to a lot of money spend on things we didn’t know we needed.

I do love this NARS radiant creamy concealer. It’s always worked for me and it looks great! It works for brightening up my under eye or concealing a spot and that’s all I can ask of my concealers!

I ended up adding my birthday gift to this order so I wouldn’t have to go in to an actual store. As a skin care lover it was easy to pick out the Drunk Elephant deluxe sample. I’m curious to try it out! It’s also excellent for travel πŸ™‚

20190312_083648

Another deluxe sample I was able to add on was this Alt-retinol from Ole Henriksen. It’s something I had looked at it before and thought it would be interesting to try, but kept putting it off because of the price tag. I’m curious to try it in this size and see if it makes a difference! Fingers crossed my skin loves it!

I was running low on my Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery and initially I was just going to reorder more of the same, but I decided to do some looking around and found this Herbivore Orchid Youth-Preserving Facial Oil. I figured I would try it out and if my skin loved it I could keep it other wise I would just return it and find something else.

20190312_083904

I love that Sephora includes samples with their packages and I ended up getting this Youth to the People Face Wash and Black Opium Perfume. I’m not sure how I feel about the Black Opium quite yet, but maybe it’ll be another favorite?

20190312_084052

That was it from Sephora, but I did do some in store shopping at TJ Maxx and Forever 21. From TJ Maxx I picked up these fun, yellow overalls. They have pockets and I thought they would be perfect for that spring to summer transition time. They are cottony so they don’t feel as heavy as a denim overalls which I love!

20190312_105904

To go with my overalls I wanted to find a couple of body suits. I had actually eyed these a couple weeks prior at Forever 21, but when I was trying to figure out how to style the overalls they came back to me. I got a navy blue floral and a basic white. These were soft and very fitted!

Let me know if you’ve tried any of the Sephora items I got and if you loved or hated them! Also, body suits? Do you love them or hate them? These are my firsts so I’m curious!

Cute stuff for the house

I love finding random knick knacks for the house and a recent trip to Home Goods led to finding some cute things!

Did we need another utensil holder? Probably not, but this one was too perfect to pass up so here we are with one more…

20180623_105203

We are constantly drinking in this house and when I saw these adorable plastic tumblers I couldn’t resist. They are also much larger than our current tumblers sooooo less getting up for refills during a binge watching session πŸ˜‰

Pineapple cup. Do I need to say more?

FabFitFun Summer Unboxing

I know I am a little late to the game, but I wanted to post my FabFitFun box! I was super excited about this season’s box because I had heard that there would be a Foreo included and I had been thinking about purchasing one for a LONG time. Let’s just say I was pretty happy I hadn’t jumped the gun since I got it in this box!

20180608_144419

Let’s jump into the box shall we?

20180608_144656

As I mentioned, the biggest reason I was so excited for this box was because of this Foreo Luna Fofo ($89). I love exfoliating my skin and I’ve heard so many good things about this particular tool. I am super happy to have received it in the box!

20180608_150040

Elemis is a skin care brand I had heard many good things about, but never thought about getting because of how pricey it was (this was $45). I am totally excited to try out this Papaya Enzyme Peel from them! It smells so good-nothing strong, just a nice soft clean, spa scent.

20180608_145459

Tarte was included twice in this box with the Sex Kitten Liquid Liner and Tarte Tarteist PRO To Go Palette ($43 for both). I usually use a pencil eyeliner so I am interested to see how I will do with this liquid liner. As for the palette, who doesn’t like playing with some eyeshadows?

Since it is summer and the hot sun rays are in full effect I was happy to have received the COOLA Face Sport SPF 50. I currently use Neutrogena, but this SPF is valued at $32 so I am interested to see if it’s any better than the one I currently use.

20180608_145848

I got another skin care product from Vasanti ($29). It’s called Brighten Up! It’s a facial cleanser that is supposed to take off dead skin cells and reveal bright, beautiful skin. Between all the products I have gotten in this box I feel like my face may be the brightest it’s ever been.

20180608_145556

Just like I love giving my face a good exfoliation I love exfoliating my body too and I am hoping this Jaboneria Marinella Hawaiian Black Lava Body Caviar ($48) will help with removing some of my dead skin and put some hydration back into it.

20180608_145711

I had been eyeing some make up cases for travel and so I was pleased as punch to see this Yumi Kim Makeup Train Case ($58) included in the box. I loved the pretty lavender purple shade I got with the sweet flowers all across! I will definitely be using the heck outta this!

20180608_150438

This last thing I wasn’t over the top about, but it is beautiful and can be useful. It’s this Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish ($14.99). I placed it on our catch all table so it could catch all the random, small things we toss onto it!

20180608_145242

This was my FabFitFun box and I am so excited to play with all of the things! Let me know if you want a follow up post on any of the things I mentioned in this post. I would be more than happy to do it!

Also, talk to me in the comments below if you subscribe to FabFitFun and tell me what you loved about the Summer Box!

 

Old Navy Haul

We workout and hike and pretty active for the most part, but I never really think twice about what I throw on to go to the gym. It had been a while since I bought some new workout clothes so during a recent sale I hit up Old Navy.

I like Old Navy workout stuff because it’s comfy, but durable. There are some pieces that are not squat proof, but a LOT are so you have options! I only get leggings that I can squat in with no worries so if you’re the same these are all safe options.

Let’s jump into the haul!

I needed a basic pair of black leggings. I don’t know how I had no black athletic leggings, but I didn’t. These aren’t fun or exciting, just a staple I had been missing.

20180509_120541

I do have quite a few gray leggings, but I liked the mesh detail and the texture on the leg. These also felt a bit thicker so I thought they would be great for the colder months πŸ™‚

20180509_120632

This tank ended up being like 5 bucks. It was cute and pink and light!

20180509_120720

This sports bra was just another basic that I wanted/needed…nothing exciting here!

20180509_120223

These leggings were nice because I liked that it had some fun print on it, but since it was in a neutral color it makes it easier to wear.

20180509_120457

I loved this tank because it was soft and grey and I live in soft and grey. I liked the gold lettering because it added a little splash of bling without blinging you out!

20180509_120748

I was so torn about these leggings because I wasn’t sure how often I would wear them. They are beautiful and fun so I ended up leaving with them!

20180509_120356

Oh, I also got the sports bra to match πŸ˜€

20180509_120108

Where is your go to place for workout clothes? Let me know!

A few recent purchases…

In other words a haul…you guys, I have been out and about buying things here and there so I wanted to share with you some of my recent favorite purchases!

Friends, I am a pretty small human to be put in perspective I am 5 feet tall (5’3/4″ to be exact) and because of that I am constantly rolling up pants, jeans, whatever. It’s annoying as anything. I had been looking into buying some petite sized jeans and I invested in this Top Shop pair. I can’t remember the last time I’ve had black jeans, but these are stretchy and comfy and hit me right at the ankle 😍

20180423_132646

I don’t know if you guys know how much I love socks, but these were too cute to resist and at $6 for a pack of 3 there was no point in trying!

20180423_122420

I had been wanting a Hamsa piece for a while now and I had run into this one at Alex and Ani. I convinced myself I didn’t need it and moved on, but I kept looking for something similar and could never find one that felt right. While at the mall we stepped in and looked at it and the hubs convinced me I couldn’t leave without it. I love delicate necklaces and this one is dainty and detailed-just perfection!

20180423_132453

I can guarantee you I would not have bought this top if it didn’t have the tiny black hearts all over it. I am such a girly girl that I would probably buy anything with little hearts all over itπŸ˜…

20180423_132737

I had seen something similar to these earrings a long time ago on Bauble Bar and I kind of loved them. I ended up not getting them because I am big into touching, feeling, and trying on and I can’t do that online. I found these at Target and after placing them next to my ears a few times and thinking about what I would wear with them they came home with me 😁

20180423_132235

I have always loved dresses more than skirts, but recently it’s been kinda reversed. I found this skirt at Cotton On and loved the color, the little flowers, and the ruffles on the bottom. I also loved that it is a wrap skirt and you can tie it up in a cute little bow!

20180423_132858

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know if you have any favorite recent purchases and what they were. Have a lovely weekend!

Erewhon Haul

Hello sweet, sweet friends! Today I come to you with a mini-haul and brunch (lunch) from Erewhon.Β We had some groceries to get so we figured we would start with a fun stop at Erewhon market!

I won’t lie I kinda love this place. It has the usual groceries along with a cafe area, cold and hot food bar, sushi, pizza, bakery, etc. Basically, if you love yummy, whole foods you will probably love it here πŸ™‚

 

We grabbed snagged these organic edamame puffs which were crunchy and pretty delicious. I believe they were supposed to be a cheesy flavor, but I didn’t get a lot of that. They had a nice satisfying crunch! What made them better was alternating them with the next snack we found…

20180415_152552

 

These cauliflower puffs which were vegan and apparently had probiotics. These were super light and pretty similar to Cheetos puffs (not in flavor, just in texture). Honestly, they may even be lighter than the Cheetos. These were great and as I mentioned if you made your own snack mix with the edamame puffs and cauli puffs you basically get a delicious supersnack πŸ˜‰

20180415_152540

We would not be us if we did not get ice-cream and when we found this PB marshmallow crunch we couldn’t resist. The ice-cream is good, but not great. It had great peanut butter flavor, but no marshmallowiness at all 😦

20180415_124128

After all this shopping we worked up a good appetite and decided to share a slice of bbq chicken pizza, some cauliflower wings, and watermelon kombucha. The ‘buch was delicious! I loved this watermelon flavor (side note: the mango flavor is great too). I thought the pizza was okay, but the hubs really loved it. The cauli wings were so yummy and crispy and pretty flavorful. I was impressed!

Body Shop Haul

Yes ANOTHER haul, but let me explain!

California is DRY and I HATE dry skin. It’s tight and itchy and ashy and uncomfortable. It’s not my cup of jo! So when I saw that Body Shop was having a 50% off everything sale and Ebates was doing 8% back-I rejoiced and bought some body butters πŸ˜€

20171219_114552-1

I love Body Shop body butters because they do such a great job of moisturizing, but they also leave your skin smelling so. freaking. good.

I’ve shown this in a previous favorites, but this Vitamin E one is thick and extremely hydrating. Great for when you are right outta the shower!

20171219_115443

I’m a big fan of traveling with these as well since airplanes also leave my skin feeling parched so I bought a few travel size. These two from the spa collection are new to me, but both smell amazing!

Hawaiian Kukui Cream

20171219_115415

Japanese Camellia

20171219_120851-1

I’ve had a travel size of the British Rose just to test out, but since I loved it so much I got a regular tub. I love rose scented things and this scent just lingers on your skin and it really does leave your skin glowy and gorgeous!

20171219_120110

The Moringa cream is light and sinks in and would actually be perfect for summer months so I think this will be saved for any summer travels that come our way.

20171219_120221

The Shea is rich and hydrating and is great if you like sweeter scents as opposed to floral-y type scents.

20171219_115741

I adore all of them! Do you have a Body Shop favorite or do you use body butters/creams/moisturizers from elsewhere? Let me know in the comments below!

Sockaganza

Sockaganza is defined as an extravaganza of socks πŸ™‚ #jesstruths

I love socks…I love cute socks! It’s fun to look down at your feet and see adorable seal unicorns looking back at you. Am I right? Can I get an amen?

All the socks you will see are from Target (#notspons #iwish)

Of course I couldn’t forget the hubs πŸ˜‰

20171211_144257

Do you hearteyeemoji socks as much as I do?

Target Haul

Let me start by saying that there is absolutely no food involved in this post! Can you believe it?? Major gasp! You guys know I love food, but I love Target and clothes and beauty too πŸ™‚

I thought since I recently went to Target and bought a bunch of beautiful things I would haul them on here because it’s one of my favorite things to watch/read!

Here we go:

I have to start off on a low note and it breaks my heart a tad bit. This polish by Essie is so gorgeous. This color felt like such a beautiful summer/fall transition, BUT it chips so quickly! I always use a base and top-coat, but it still chips within the day. If you have any tips to prevent this pleeeeeasssee let me know!

20171203_082549

Mrs. AlwaysRight by Essie

I did get this polish as well which I have not yet tried, but am excited to do so! It’s this beautiful dark red

20171203_082856

Garnet Red by Sally Hansen

I got three tops that I absolutely couldn’t leave the store without…they are all floral and just seemed like good options for the fall and winter in Cali πŸ˜€

The first is a cold shoulder top that I have in another light blue color. I love the way that the blue one looks and wear it so often I had to get this one. It’s more summery and this feels more fall/winter vibes with the colors so it’ll be loved during the next few months.

20171203_080902-1

This second one is a long sleeved top. I don’t know if you can see it, but it has a slight bell sleeve which I adored. It’s beautiful and flowy. The back dips a bit lower and has a cute tie so it can be tied up in the back!

20171203_080514

The third is also cold shoulder with a bright red floral print, but it’s in this dark navy so it seems seasonally appropriate πŸ™‚ The sleeve part has trim that makes it even more fem and girly. Major heart eye emojis!

20171203_080429

I wasn’t in complete love with all of the items in this next purchase, but I saw donuts and I was sold. I mean c’mon how adorable are these??

20171203_080025

This next item is functional and cute-I loved the soft, dusky pink. I had a bright pink wallet before this and it was nice and thin and fit everything. I wanted something similar and this one fit the bill!

Did you guys enjoy this non-food related post? I love hauls and thought it would be fun to do one of my own. Let me know what you think in the comments!
