Over the holidays, my grandparents and parents were over in California to visit us. Since it was such a rare opportunity especially for my grandparents to travel, I wanted to spend as much time with them as possible. Over the New Year, I stayed at home to spend time with my family while the bf travelled to LA to visit his. Since he knew that I wouldn't be able to have time to go to any after-Christmas sales in the mall, he offered to grab some stuff for me :) Keep in mind, just like most guys out there, he hates shopping with a passion! Imagine how lost he must be in stores like Sephora and LUSH!
LUSH was having an awesome after Christmas sale, and this was my first time hearing about this great deal. When I posted about how much I love Snow Fairy shower gel in one of my previous posts, a helpful blogger (Thank you!) reminded me about the sale and that I should stock up then. Imagine my excitement when the bf came home with THREE bottles of my favorit-est scent in the whole world! He also knew that I love LUSH bubble bars, and got me these cute No Name (Gnome Name) bubble bars, the eyes were chocolate chips, how adorable is that :) All of the LUSH holiday items were buy 1 get 2 free.
Sephora also had a $10 and under sale.I asked him to get the NARS duo concealer and a Benefit to Go Beauty Bestsellers kit. Both were $10 each. December was his birthday month, so he got a free shower gel as the birthday present. I guess they don't give out lipglosses to the guys :p
The NARS concealer was in Ginger/Custard, and is suitable for medium skintones. The consistency of the concealer is creamy and easy to blend, yet it doesn't crease much, which is awesome! The shades also suit my skin tone very well. I use the lighter color for under eyes, and the darker shade for the rest of my face to cover up any blemishes.
The Benefit kit is super adorable. The OPI nail polish bottle on the side is for size comparison. As you can see, all the products were sample sized, but they are sufficient for many usages. So far I've tried the Highbeam as a highlight, and Posietint as a cute pink blush.
There is more! Hidden under all the Sephora goodies were a cute red box tied with pretty ribbons. What is it?
He got me a heart shaped white gold pendant with sparkly diamond accent. I love it so much! I've been wearing it every day since I got it.
He even got Mia something :) A blue and gold raincoat (our school color) that Mia was too fat to fit in, haha how sad! And a pink mousie cat toy. The towel is actually for me, it has an embroidered cat face on it, which looks just like our Mia.
Even though the bf was only in LA for a few days, but he got me so much goodies! Thank you for being such a sweetheart, and for supporting my beauty obsession :p
How's everyone's weekend so far? Yesterday (Saturday) was a sunny day, which was very special since it's been pouring nonstop in California for a week now! So off to the mall we went!
A box of See's chocolate that we both love. I guess we are celebrating Valentine's day early :) Look whose stinky foot got into the picture!
The bf also bought me a YSL Parisienne perfume set. Edna told me to go sniff the YSL ad in my Cosmo magazine, and I fell in love with the scent right away! It's such a lovely floral scent, very sweet, but not over powering. This set is a Valentine's Day set that includes a 1.6 oz bottle, a small travel sized bottle, and a body lotion in the same scent. I am so excited about this, and plan on wearing it everyday now because I love it so much!
