Winter Haul! Forever 21, Ulta, Target, & Old Navy

Winter Haul! Forever 21, Ulta, Target, & Old Navy

Hello all! I’m back with a new Haul! As most of these things have been ordered online, I’ve just found the pictures of them on their respective websites. I haven’t quite received everything yet (but most everything). I wanted to tell you about some great deals right now.

WetSeal: 40% off all dresses. The red one in the top right is from the new Crush for ABC Family line. It’s adorable and very Taylor Swift. I also purchased some fleece-lined leggings for when I go back to school. I love wearing skirts but just don’t feel comfortable without some leg-coverin’s!

Forever21: I think the deal is over now but it’s good to keep an eye out. Got my black knee high boots from F21 for 50% off, at just $22.40! I also purchased the red plaid shirt (a winter staple), as well as the cold shoulder body con dress. The shirt was just $12 and the dress was only $14.80. (So, yeah, $15).

Old Navy: 15% off. Got this amazing blue sequined sweater, black chiffon collared shirt, and terry fleece blazer. I also picked up a super cute statement necklace and ring that I’ll post later.

Wedge Heels: From a local boutique by the name of “Ooh La La” these super cute lace-up wedges were just $25. They’re super painful, which stinks because they’re so adorable. I’m hoping to break them in! They’re from City Classified, which you can find super discounted online at shoetopia.com.

Ulta: The Stila “In the Light” palette. My wonderful boyfriend got this for me for Christmas, and it’s just amazing. I’ll have to do some swatches on that later. In the meantime, here’s a link to inspire you to possibly buy it for yourself: (http://www.lipglossiping.com/2012/05/stila-in-the-light-eyeshadow-palette-review-swatches-and-a-fotd/).

Target: The chunky cable knit sweater and rose tulle skirt were given to me for Christmas by my mother and sister. I had pinned both things, so I was very happy to receive them!

Makeup Rack: I got this amazing spinning spice-rack style makeup rack by pinning it on Pinterest! My aunt went to the trouble to find it and order it for me! I could not have been more excited to get it. It looks amazing and keeps me from tearing apart my vanity just to do my makeup. You can purchase it from QVC here: (http://www.qvc.com/Tabletop-Spinning-Cosmetic-Organizer-by-Lori-Greiner.product.H164200.html)

Makeup We Can Actually Afford: Maybelline BB Cream

Makeup We Can Actually Afford: Maybelline BB Cream

So, as you know- I’m a fan of both drug store and high-end products. However, when it comes to foundations, I feel like if you can find something that works for you for less than $15, you shouldn’t hesitate to buy it just because it’s not high end. I realize that with all of my traveling that I do for school and work, I prefer to own some drugstore products that I can take with me on trips where if they got broken or damaged it wouldn’t be a huge loss. I’ve found that of all of the products I’ve ever purchased, the Maybelline BB Cream was the best foundation I have ever owned. It is best applied with a beauty blender or sponge, and has NEVER caused me to break out. It can be worn alone or with a powder, (I recommend Revlon Nearly Naked). This product is about $8-$9 and not only gives your skin a great matte finish, but also gives you some sun protection, (great for white people like myself.) Maybelline usually has great products (though I’m not a fan of the Fit Me line- side note: I want to try the shine stick)- but this one seems to be a holy grail for me. Definitely pick it up next time you’re at Target or Ulta and let me know what you think!

I am so excited for fall fashion it’s ridiculous. I keep getting ahead of myself, but I just love leggings and boots and scarves. In the summer, there’s so few options for accessorizing, because it’s usually too hot to even care. In the fall and winter, accessorizing is absolument nécessaire (absolutely necessary). That’s why I’ve been doing a TON of fall and winter haul shopping, and I’m super excited to post a haul up here as soon as all of my online shopping boxes arrive. I’ve been hitting up Forever 21, JCPenney, Victoria’s Secret, Target, and even Walmart, so my haul is going to be full of tons of ideas that are not only completely adorable but also completely affordable.

Beautiful on a budget.

The photo above is the latest edition of my room makeovers. I’m a big fan of parisienne, as you can see.

I love this color scheme, it’s super relaxing and very chic at the same time. I bought the brown comforter (which is extremely think and soft, by the way) at Walmart for about $17. The body pillow was just old stuffing that I put into a suede-textured case that I purchased at Walmart for $4! The two pink flower pillows were from Hancock fabrics for $12 each, and the C’est Moi pillows were around $18-$20 each from TJ Maxx. The Couture magazine covers were from Home Goods, about $30. The “Gorgeous” and Eiffel tower with heart stickers were about $23 all together. The bedside lamp was $21 at Target, and you can stack books in the base.

The cat is free, but you probably won’t find one that awesome anywhere.

I love Walmart, Target, and Tx Maxx because if you are shopping for a color scheme, especially pastels- you are are likely to get a great selection of well made products that are very inexpensive compared to even shopping at a Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

I posted this, #1, to show you where you could get a cute chic Parisian set up, and #2, because I was so proud of it.
Also, my cat looks pretty gorgeous here.
