My new favorite TV show "The Inbetweeners" is just ending and I'm trying to post this blog entry I've been attempting to write all day. Last Saturday I was able to meet up with Amy from amynaree and Kali from Cambo Soup at Santa Monica Promenade for some lunch and some retail therapy. Kali is so sweet and has the greatest smile, it is so contagious you can't help but smile and be happy when around her. Amy is so pretty and even cooler in person. Kali, Amy, and I couldn't stop talking and laughing the whole time! I was so nervous about meeting up with them I almost backed out until my husband finally told me "You better go or you're going to regret it, plus it's not like you're meeting some guy you met online", haha he was so right if I hadn't gone I really would have regretted it. LOL I love how Amy put it when she said "I felt like I was getting ready for a first date". I'm glad Kali and Amy were so awesome and we all just clicked. Of course we hit the Sephora even though none of us really "needed" anything. Here is what I got from Sephora:
Sephora lipgloss in #10I actually got this Sephora lipgloss in two other colors but I ended up returning them, I'll talk about that later.
Dior Smothing Plumping Lip Balm
Okay, am I the only sucker who bought this so far? I only say that because I have been using it everyday since buying it and other than smoothing my lips a little I have yet to see any dramatic effects. It doesn't plump that's for sure. At $25 dollars you'd think this lip balm would do a little more than my Burt's Bee's Wax. If you haven't bought this good for you, keep your money this is a total FAIL for me.
Okay, this is the best thing I bought that day. We went into Victoria Secret and this was the "New Scent" they had on display. I wasn't even going to give it a second glance since I personally don't like the smell of coconut. But for some reason as I walked around I picked this up to smell it... and what happened? Well instant love happened right there in the middle of Victoria's Secret. This doesn't smell anything like coconut it smells like cupcakes, or cake batter I love it. The first time I used it my husband kept telling me "You smell good", which I found funny because my husband hates "dessert" smelling products.
Kali is so sweet she gave Amy, and me little gifts at the meet up, this is what she gave me:
This Body Butter smells so good! It smells like waffles, or something. The best way for me to describe it is- it smells like breakfast. =)
And what girl doesn't need face masks? I especially like the one that says "Young Skin". =P
Seriously, Kali and Amy are bomb dot com! =)
So here is my dilema. Help me I don't know what to do. Am I the only one who hates to return things? I really dread if I bought something and I have to return it. I don't know what it is. My husband gets mad because he thinks just return it who cares. But for me it's like... I hate to use the word embarassing, but I think that's the only word I can come up with it to explain it. That day at Sephora I bought the 3 lipglosses and the Dior lip balm. For the first time I didn't like ANY of those products. So I went to Sephora a few days later and exchanged the 2 Sephora lip glosses for this:
- Mini Buxom Lash Mascara in Blackest Black
- Mini Buxom Lip Stick in Amsterdam (deep raspberry)
-Buxom Lips in Dolly (dusty mauve)
- Buxom Insider Eyeliner in Onyx (absolute black)
For $32 dollars I thought this was a great deal, I love the lipgloss color, I wanted to try the Buxom inside eyeliner, and I love the Buxom Mascara (My HG Mascara) so I thought this was a great deal.
I really want to return the other Sephora lipgloss and the Dior lip balm but I'm crazy and can't bring myself to do it. Does anyone else have this problem? I just want to suck it up and go return it the damn things and get something I want! Arg.. I'm such a chicken. Blah =(
Onto a more fun topic!
I'm excited I'm leaving for Vegas this Friday, I really need some sort of vacation. So my husband and I are heading to Vegas with a couple of friends to relax, shop and maybe squeeze in a facial, oh and of course to play some poker. =)
See all you lovely ladies when I get back!
