Holiday Shopping

I made a quick trip to Ulta on Christmas eve because I had 20% your whole purchase. So I got some essential skincare items that I swear by, a dry shampoo (because I wash my hair twice a week) and some q-tips. 
Almost my whole skin care routine is now Mario Badescu. His products just seem to work best for my skin. I always get the cheapest dry shampoo because I go through a bottle a week. 
 The day after Christmas I went and picked up a new pair of black Hudson's, the Kiehls midnight recovery oil, a new MK bag and a few other things. I went to the mall thinking I was about to get some killer deals and I ended up buying everything full price. 

Hudsons are some of my favorite jeans! They're super comfy, flattering and last a long time. 

I got a sample of this to try last week and absolutely loved it so I had to buy the full size bottle. I use this every night after my toner before my night cream.
I wanted a smaller everyday bag. One that was good quality, not black and something that went with everything. I chose this MK one. I like it because the leather is really soft, it has so many hidden pockets and it has a tassel!
It also has a place on the inside where I can attach my keys. Since my car is a push to start and I dont even need my keys out to unlock or lock my car its really convenient to not have to go digging for keys. The only downside about this bag is I had to switch sunglasses. My new D&G's have a huge case and its a little tight in there when i'm wearing those. So, I'm back to wearing my Ray Bans til I find a smaller case for them.

I picked this color mainly because it looked good w my hair. LOL.

This is what it looks like on. Its the perfect size.
Been obsessed with these high waisted Nasty Gal jeans.
I recieved the Naked 3 for Christmas which i'm stoked about. It's definitely my favorite out of them all. All of the colors are so wearable and amaaaazing. I'm quite happy with it.  Not to mention it comes with a super good quality brush. Go UD!

Wearing all Naked 3 colors.
 My mom got me the cutest 2014 planner. It's small enough to fit in my bag and has enough space to write what I need inside. She always gets me the cutest personalized things. Its my fav!

 I plan on slowly going lighter and lighter... I eventually want my hair color to look like this. So pretty. I'm going to do it slowly so that I can keep my hair long and so I dont fry it off. 

 For the new year I'm going to try to eat better, drink less soda, and not be a makeup hoarder. I'm also going to try to make more time for myself. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your families and got everything you hoped for! 
I have a major shopping problem so my next post will probably be about more things I bought.

Update/Current Favs

Meet the love of my life, Sosa.  He's the most perfect creature to ever walk this earth. He's an all white miniature english bull terrior! He loves to sleep and cuddle all day long. He's so attached to me. What more could you ask for?
He was 5lbs when I first got him. Tiny tiny boy. 
Oh and alllll of the lip products I have in my handbag are all nudes... my fav. 

 This sweet boy looks sooo small here! He's 35lbs now.

He loves to cuddle on anyone. Someone always has to be touching him for him to be satisfied. 

He is such an amazing first pup. He's so friendly and loving i'm obsessed with him. I also love the fact that he follows me around and just loves me so much! Bull terriors are so smart and amazing.

 Recently i've been focusing a lot on skin...Skin is the key to beautiful makeup! 

 My go-to dirty hair bun... This was during the summer time so my hair was fullly dark. 

 Skin skin skin!
I have really dry skin so I like my face to look radiant and youthful. I use a variety of different products to achieve my daily dewy skin. 

 My favorite dark lip this season is Current liner and Diva lipstick. Both by MAC. 

 My favorite nude lip combo this season is Myth lipstick by MAC and Boxums lipgloss in White Russian. So pretty. 

 I try to snap makeup selfies on the daily so I can eventually show you guys. I'm usually running late so that doesnt always happen butttt, I try. 

aaaand this is my current hair. I've slowly but surely been lightening it. I wanted to do it slowly so that it would stay long and I wouldnt have to chop it off due to damage. I've done a pretty good job but I do use alot of products daily to keep it as healthy as possible. 

 I've been wearing the shit out of these Steve Madden Troopa boots! I think I already need another pair. They're already super scuffed up and turning brown. They're so good for everyday work. Super comfortable and go with everything. I think they were super cheap too... $99? 

Picked up these suede Calvin Kleine Knee Highs the other day... I'm not sure how much I like them tho. They're super comfortable and the color is beautiful. But since they're suede I feel like they are going to get ruined super fast. I believe I payed around $130 for these? Let me know if you guys think I should keep them. 

This is also the first year i'm not going to Kauai to spend the holidays with my family. I'm super bummed about it but I have baby sosa to keep me busy. Hope all of you guys are blessed with an amazing christmas and get everything you guys wished for! 

xx, B
