It's A Love Thing Boutique: Mini Haul

Hey Bellas!

I'm doing a very small mini haul for my last post in May.
Spring is almost over so stay tuned for my Seasonal Favorites: Spring Edition post.
Also stay tuned for a MASSIVE MASSIVE MASSIVE 5 part Forever21 Mega Haul. read that right...a five part Forever21 Mega Haul ❤

Anyway, I received these two adorable necklaces courtesy of Dominique Love at It's A Love Thing Boutique
I highly suggest you go check out her site and pick up some cute things.
She sells gorgeous affordable jewelry, accessories and party dresses that are trendy and make a statement.
These necklaces are called Bow Tye and feature a blinged out puffy bow on a short thick chain.
They sell for $22 each and a perfect length for anyone (right above the boobies! ❤)
I love these and got a lot of compliments on them.

❤ The Randomness ❤
1) Old cartoons like Scooby-Doo are my life! I love things like Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, and all the Hanna-Barbara stuff. I also like the old 80's and 90's shows..basically T.V. sucks today.
2) I have a guilty pleasure for 80's teen movies like Sixteen Candles and Princess Bride
3) I read historical romance novels, fantasy novels and anything on Greek Mythology❤
4) I didn't start obsessing over makeup and beauty until my junior year of high school.
5) I love toast with butter and jelly on it. I hate anything with coconut and I'm allergic to mushrooms.
6) I love things like opera, museums, ballets and all that "cultural stuff" that people my age shouldn't like.
7)I'm currently debating on whether I should let my hair go natural or stay with my Brazilian Hair Straightening treatments.

❤NYX Mega Haul❤

Ciao Bellas!
Im sorry I haven't posted in a while....
Anyway here's an awesome makeup haul from NYX cosmetics!
I loved all of these products and recommend them to everyone ❤

All products are listed from left to right

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are really pretty,original and the colors are gorgeous. They last longer than a lipstick or gloss but not as long as a stain. I just apply these with a little bit of gloss on top. 
I purchased the shades: Antwerp, Amsterdam, Addis Ababa, Sao Paulo, Milan and  Abu Dhabi 

The 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette in Smokey Eyes and Caviar & Bubbles are nice but the colors aren't too pigmented :(

Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean, Milk, Dark Brown, French Fries, Sparkle Leopard, Iced Mocha, Gold, Cashmere, Sparkle Nude, Strawberry Milk, Yogurt and Oyster 

Omg I LOVE these eye pencils! I don't know why I didn't buy these sooner. I use them as a color base when I want to make my eye shadow pop. I also use them by themselves for a trendy glossy eye look ❤

Let me know what you think of this post and if you guys have these products ^_^

❤Sephora Haul❤

Hey Bellas!
I went to the New York Metropolitan Museum's Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations Costume Institute gallery yesterday.
The exhibit was amazing and fun to visit. I got some really cute pencils at the gift shop that were related to the gallery. They're black round pencils with white and pink rhinestones instead of erasers.
I love these pencils so much they're so cute and chic ❤

After visiting the museum my friend and I went to a nearby Sephora and bought some stuff.
The sales lady introduced me to Carol's Daughter Hair products and I decided to by some!
I'll be trying them out soon and I'll let you know what I think ❤ 
I also bought my first BB Cream and I'm super excited to see if it's worthy of all the hype

Here's what I got 
Carols Daughter Hair Balm
Aquolina Hair Perfume
Carols Daughter Monoi Repairing Collection 3-piece starter kit
Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm in Beach Glow
Repurchased: OPI Drip Dry Nail Drying Drops
Deluxe Sample: Dior Hydra Life BB Cream

❤Origins Skincare Haul❤

Hey Bellas!
I went to the Origins Skincare Counter at the mall a few weeks ago and got a ton of stuff!
They were giving out a ton of free samples if you bought something.
I decided to buy a few products since I had a $50 gift card for them that I haven't used yet. 
The sales person asked me what kind of skin problems and recommended a few products for me.

In the first two pictures
Dr.Weil Mega Bright Moisturizer
A Perfect World SPF 20 Moisturizer
Checks and Balances Facial Cleanser
Zero Oil Shine Control Moisturizer

These products will help with my combination/oily skin, dark spots, and shiny pimple prone skin ❤

In the third pictures
Brighter by Nature Skin Peel Pads
Modern Friction Facial Scrub
A Perfect World Moisturizer

These are the deluxe samples that I received for my purchase. 
The sales person did a good job of coordinating the samples with the things I bought ❤

In the final picture
These are just a bunch of free samples they were handing out.
I got a few of them as I passed by the counter while I was shopping and I got the rest of them while I was at the counter buying things ❤

All together my gift card paid for the total purchase plus tax. 
I didn't spend a penny ^_^
Even if I didn't have the gift card I still would have bought some stuff because Origins products are great. 
The sales people were really knowledgeable and polite.
They gave out a ton of free samples and didn't pressure me to buy something like the other counters do ❤

❤Ulta Haul❤

Hey Bellas!
This is just a really short haul post on some stuff I bought at
I got some sunscreen and other beauty stuff for the summer.
I got the sunscreen for obvious reasons...
I bought the Lipstain because I don't like to wear a ton of makeup in the summer but this product is really light and low maintenance ❤

Aveeno Face Sunscreen SPF 30
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Spray on Sunblock SPF 70
Neutrogena Triple Moisture Silk Touch Leave in Conditioner
Stila Lip Stain in Raspberry Crush
Softlips SPF 20 Lipbalm in Cherry

I also got these really great samples (last pic) ❤

Cute Victoria's Secret PINK Bags

Hey my lovely Bellas!
I'm so sorry I've been gone for a while. I had finals and school stuff. But now I'm done with school and officially on summer holiday so I'll have a lot of time to post more often. 
I've been doing a lot of shopping so stay tuned for a ton of haul posts and reviews ❤

Here's a small post on these cute bags I got on eBay.
I purchased these 2 VS Pink bags for about $10 each. 
They're really cute and roomy for running errands or for a weekend away from home.

Thanks for being patient with me. I've got some beauty product hauls coming up very soon ❤
