Took a stroll into the new Walgreens for nothing more than a box for shipping something I needed to return. The first thing I see when I walk in is this gorgeous cardboard display of maybellines fall 2013 on the runway collection!

It was like purple rain! I immediately went crazy and threw all of the purple lipsticks in my basket! Purple is my favorite color and I love it in lipstick form because its screams fashion forward! As I continued to look through what they had to offer, I died when I saw the purple gloss! Omg this gloss color I have never seen anywhere! It was like poisonberry by limecrime in a gloss form!

Here are swatches of the colors I purchased.

I am extremely intrigued by the gloss intense pigment below is a photo of just the gloss. There isn’t any lip liner, lipstick or filter!

Tight Wallet Tuesday : Silver and Gold Dr. Martens

How many of you have shopped on hautelook.com?! I love that website! But what do I love more than that website super great deals that help the pocket instead of hurt the pocket! Which is why this is today’s tight wallet Tuesday!

I am a sucker for Docs aka Dr. Martens! I think it’s because after moving back to San Francisco from Los Angeles the weather is a lot cooler and I can Rock boots all the time! Plus I had a pair in the 90s that i loved dearly and the styles they come up with lately are just too cute not to!
So these silver and gold Leyton style docs I first ran across at the Dr martens store in soho New York and fell in love! Instead of a boot they are a leather sneaker super comfy and super cute! I know I needed then both but wasn’t ready to spend $80 per shoe!

Patience is definitely virtue because approximately 3 months later they were on hautelook! Yes hautelook! I was so excited and was thinking do I get them both?! And of course me the over consumer says “duh of course !” The price was $20 cheaper they were going for $59 each! So yes! I got both pairs for a little under $120 got free shipping and I am a happy camper!

If you are ever looking for great deals try hautelook! they have name brand deals for the house, the kids, men, women and beauty for less!

Those are my cute little shoes below! Don’t you love them??

REBLOG

Reblog: posting other people’s blogs on your blog.

I have tons and tons of gifted and talented friends! A lot of them are a jack of all trades! For example my friend Abe creator of his new line “All Black Everything” aka ABE! That’s super creative in itself has began to launch items here and there from his upcoming line! He just got in his new hat “REBLOG” because as a blogger the feeling of getting your posts reblogged is pretty cool! Knowing that someone out there thinks that what you post or what you’re saying is worth reposting makes you feel like “wow I’m actually reaching people”!

Turn heads Thursday: Illamasqua Fierce intense lipgloss

20130523-132119.jpg
It’s Thursday! One day closer to the weekend and it’s time to turn heads! Take a step out of your comfort zone and try a color on your lips that screams out DOPE!
My color choice for today is purple! Purple is one of my fav colors and there are currently so many pigmented purple lipsticks out there!
This color on my lips is a true bright blue purple! The craziest part about it is that its a gloss. There is no lip liner and no lipstick underneath just pure gloss! If you have not tried illamasquas intense lipglosses I suggest you take a browse on http://www.illamasqua.com or stroll over to a sephora near you that sells illamasqua.

This purple is called Fierce and couldn’t have been named better! Super fierce! Throw this on with a simple eye maybe a winged out liner some bronzer and call it a day!

This lipgloss retails for $22 and a little goes a long way with this crazy intense pigment!

You will for sure be turning heads! Stay fierce my friends.

Tight Wallet Tuesday: H&M Beyonce Beachwear Line

ImageBeyonce’s collaboration with H&M launched early this month and not only is it super cute, but it’s super inexpensive! The cute little dress and crop top won’t cost you more than $20 but the biggest shock to be was the price of the Bikini tops and bottoms! Seriously it’s a steal.

 

We all know that we can easily spend $60 on a pretty cute bathing suit! But Beyonce’s line you spend $10! Yes $10 for the whole thing top and bottom! This is why it is my topic for tight wallet tuesday. 

Summer is right around the corner there is lots of time for the pool, sunbathing and vacation. And we all want to have multiple bathing suits that are super adorable but don’t break the pockets. H&M and BEYONCE did that! 

ImageI got 2 bathing suits, 4 pieces for $20! The coral color i’m absolutely in love with! It has matching bottoms, but i don’t like to match that often. Matching is overrated. But back to costs 20$ That is ridiculously hard to come by. Even at Target we leave there with one bathing suit @ $30.00! Each piece is $4.95 they are very comfortable, chic and well cheap!

Get out to your local H&M and get a few before they are all gone!

That’s your tight wallet tuesday tip for the week.

Tight Wallet Tuesday: Bowler Hat Find!

Tight wallet Tuesday is back! And i think this is the best deal I have ever come across, and probably saved the most money on. I never shop at Kohl’s but I was on a hunt for a cute bowler hat! I fell in love with some at goorin bros, but I couldn’t gather myself to pay $75 and up for a hat right now. So i decided to go to my favorite friend google.com and type in bowler hat. One of the first links said Kohl’s so I said okay lets check this out! So I found this cute little black bowler pictured below! Way cute right? Well I will be taking out the feather because it is a little too pimp-ish for me. But never the less a cute bowler. The best part is that this was on sale. Original price was $42.00 knocked down to $8.40 okay so that is already more than 50% off it’s like almost free. And then on top of that kohls had an online promotion of 20% off with the promotion code: BLOOM- which I got off of retailmenot.com! which made it like $6! And to top it off I used EBATES and got money back! Okay so it wasn’t that much money back from ebates because it was only like 3% but still. This $42 hat was practically free! Right isnt that an awesome deal if you have a tight wallet!
