i like my money right where I can see it: hanging in my closet.
There are a lot of exciting things on the horizon at the moment. Good people in my life, concerts to look forward to, and this beautiful optimism that has been following me around since the new year began.
Speaking of the new year, I made a fair number of resolutions this year. While I have been doing pretty well with keeping them thus far, I had one minor slip recently. One of my resolutions was to shop less. For me, this is torture. I managed to make it nearly a month, which I for one, am impressed with!
Here is what I bought recently.
Zara had an amazing sale on - I couldn't resist! I ended up buying this really cute black tank top with feathers on the shoulder, a snake skin print dress, and a really beautiful lace dress.
I also went to Sephora, which is probably my favourite store in the entire world. I bought two new makeup items, which I am really excited about.
The first, is Makeup Forever's Diamond Shadow in 311. The colour is just gorgeous. It is a really pretty purpleish brown shade, which has a beautiful shimmer to it. I attempted to do a swatch of the colour, but none of the photos turned out. My apologies!
Lastly, I bought Kat Von D's Tattoo Chronicles: Candelabra Edition eyeshadow palette. So far, I am loving everything about this. The packaging is so cute - it looks like a book, with drawings and letters on the front pages, and a mirror, the eyeshadows and a mascara in the back.
My favourite colour at the moment, is WTF, which is a really vibrant red. It creates such a bold makeup look. This palette is fantastic, because it mixes soft shimmery colours with dark and daring matte colours. There are a ton of options for really sexy smokey eye looks.
Despite the fact that I waffled a little bit on one of my resolutions, I am far too busy loving everything I purchased to care all that much!
What have you bought recently?
