Outfit of the Day and Some Shopping
I had some errands to do today - including getting my passport photo taken. I wore jeans and a white t-shirt with lavender accessories - and my favourite Old Navy scarf. I'm so happy that my scarf is now captured in my passport photo - I can look at it for the next 5 years! (I love it that much!)
The BOGO Payless event is on - and I was able to pick up the sandals I had been wanting (previously posted about here). I also picked up this pair:
It's super cute and comfy (as are the other 2 sandals). I've decided that I will only buy my casual flats and sandals at Payless. I've found their shoes to be pretty yet indestructible - and always comfortable. My Payless-only decision was prompted by these Guess shoes I paid over $60 for. The soles are slippery, the surface has started to peel - and I've hardly worn them! I think it's best to stick to save my money here - and splurge on high heels.
I used my 15% Sephora coupon on these 2 items:
The first is a "Tonytail" holder. It's by the same company that made the braided hairband I raved about here. When you wear it, it looks like you've wrapped some hair around the base of your ponytail - without actually having to achieve that look using bobby pins. I got it in black to match my hair. The second is Sephora's dispenser bottle. I decanted my BB Tomato Toner into this (since comes in a slippery glass bottle). I love how the press-down cap works - so much fun!
How come I have so much to say today - this is going to be a long post! I tried the CG lash blast Volume mascara today - and so far - I *LOVE* it. It makes my lashes look so long and thick, and there was NO clumping. Also - it came off REALLY easily - with one swipe of remover. I'm shocked - because I usually use Maybelline's Full n Soft - which is formulated to dissolve quickly - and the CG was even easier to remove ( F&S usually takes me at least 2-3 swipes!)
I'll have to go to the mall again tomorrow - as I got a call that my special order from Coach has arrived (yippee!) I'll just leave you with a picture of these adorable "Pook-a-Looz" - the new range of Disney plush animals. They are *so* cute, and I nearly purchased the Mickey and Minnie for myself...in fact, I can't promise that I won't in the near future! I love how vintage and home-made they look!
