Labor Day Weekend Haul

Hi everyone. It was a long weekend here in the US because of Labor Day. This year, we decided to stay in and rest instead of going somewhere, and finish up any last minute wedding preparations as we are getting close to the Big Day! It was really nice to get the extra day off, how I wish all of our weekends are 3 days long hahaha.

I snatched up two of the Nicole by OPI Gossip Girl nail polishes at Target, in Scandal, Secrets & Sparkle -- a silver glitter, and Nicole...Spotted -- a lovely glittery green shade. I couldn't find the other two shades that came out with this collection, and the shelves were running low of the remaining two shades too, so Gossip Girl fans, grab yours while you can!

Stopped by H&M and grabbed some pretty accessories. Very bow themed huh? My favorite ring is the middle one in the front with the bow tie and the pearl hanging from it. So cute!

Also went to Forever 21 and went jewelry crazy there haha. I also had a hard time deciding on the colors of the pearl bracelets and earrings so fiance convinced me to get them all. My jewelry storage is slowly filling up. Already no more room for earrings *chuckles*

I also did some damage at Sephora. One of the Sephora's I went to had about 6 or 7 UD Naked Palette on display! I would have seriously snatched up another one if it weren't a permanent item. I am loving my current one right now. And I just realized I still haven't made a haul post about that yet! Did you get Naked yet? ;)

I was ecstatic when I saw my favorite perfume, YSL Parisienne in a special set (maybe from Mother's Day?) on sale. I got my first bottle of Parisienne as Valentine's Gift from fiance earlier this year, and this has been my everyday perfume since then. I've already used up half a bottle of mine and I am glad that now I have a bigger bottle of backup :)

I also picked up this Stila Brow Polish to try. It is basically a mascara-like wand that you lightly brush over your brow hair to give it a bit of tint and also to groom all your hair together into shape. I actually really like it! The shade I picked up is Warm, a brown shade perfect for me.

This Sephora Favorites Lip Service Deluxe Sampler is such a great way to try out different brands of lipsticks. Some lippies in there are in adorable sample size containers, but a few are full sized, which makes it a great deal!

All the lippies are tucked in a nice velvelty holder. From left to right, we have:

Duwop Private Red Lipstick
Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Sheer
Sephora Nano Lip Liner in Radiant Rosy
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Roman Holiday
Korres Guava Lipstick in Wine Red
Cargo Plantlove Botanical Lipstick in Muir Woods
Tarte Vitamin Infused Lipstick in Hatha
Laura Mercier Lip Coulour Creme in Pink Champagne.

    I'm loving all your polishes and accessories. I'm digging your bow booties in your previous post too. Where did you get them from? If you say forever21 I'm going to die. They are probably all sold out not for sure seeing that it was Labor Day yesterday. {*sigh}
