MAC Haul!!

It’s 9:08 p.m on a Friday night. If I was 24 again I’d still be an hour away from heading out the door for a night of bar hopping with my girlfriends.

I’ll be 31 in three weeks. It’s now 9:11 p.m. I don’t know why it took me three – 9:12 p.m – four minutes to type what I’ve typed so far. I really need to get better at this blogging thing! Friday nights for 30 year old Nikki means a glass *cough* bottle *cough* of Chardonnay, a Modern Family marathon and diving into my latest and greatest haul!

Marshalls Haul!

Can you really call it a haul when you’ve only purchased two items?

I stopped in at Marshalls the other day for a new Christmas sweater. No, I didn’t get an “Ugly Christmas Sweater.” I haven’t jumped on that trendy train just yet. Maybe next year. I just wanted a couple of nice cozy sweaters to wear during the holidays and thereafter.  Continue reading

CVS Clearance Haul!

2014-12-11 21.26.33

Ohhhhhh, yeah! It went down this afternoon in CVS!

So, I was feeling kind of down this afternoon. Winter blues got me good today for some reason. Christmas movies weren’t cheering me up and neither were the Gilmore Girls. I resolved to taking an hour nap on the sofa.

After my nap, I decided I needed to be somewhat productive with my day. I needed gas and instead of trudging to the pumps tomorrow morning before I work, I figured I’d fill up, head to CVS and get myself my first Peppermint Mocha of the season at Starbucks.

I was extremely pleased with what I got at CVS. Keep reading for a look at what I got!  Continue reading

Plus size and make up haul from Ulta, Fashion To Figure and Forever 21 Plus!

It’s been a minute since I’ve written. Not for lack of anything to write about, though!

Last weekend I went to Long Island to visit the parental units and to celebrate my little cousins 4th birthday. Shenanigans ensued, drinks were had, laughs were shared and food was eaten. It was a great time, as always!

What’s up with me? Well, I’ve been fairly down in the dumps since yesterday, but I’m surprisingly being positive about my situation.

I’ve been on unemployment for the past six months. Turns out that federal funding for benefit extensions have not been approved. Therefore, I am cut off from payments after my next check. I’ve applied to a variety of jobs for the past six months and have gotten zero calls and zero interviews.

After a moment of self indulgent panic and depression, I picked myself up, had a cup of tea, and got to job hunting.

I’ve gotten one e-mail from a life insurance company and one call from a headhunter recruiter.

Fingers crossed for me, readers.

So, anyone watch Orange is the New Black season 2 yet? I’ve finished the season and would love to hear your thoughts and views on it.

Now, on to the good stuff!  Continue reading

NYX Cosmetics, Coastal Scents and why I love makeup.

Buy all the makeup!

Buy all the makeup!

Well, I did it again. I purchased a few more items to add to my tiny collection of make up. It’s understandable that I would need to purchase this many items in such a short amount of time, right? To be fair, most of the items I owned were from about seven years ago. Did you know that Urban Decay primer will eventually dry up and become a sticky paste? Who needs Elmer’s glue! Not this chick! Read on to check out what goodies I’m expecting =)  Continue reading

Mary Kay moisturizer, ELF brushes and primer, Philosophy cleanser and knowing you’re beautiful.

I have a confession. It’s shocking, appalling and unheard of! I’m a 28 (almost 29) year old and I have never owned a good facial moisturizer. I’ve recently become quite obsessed with the world of beauty and makeup. It is so vast and beyond any type of expectations I had when I started. It dawned on me that I’ve been using hand cream and sometimes even foot cream as my primary facial moisturizer. That’s not okay. After some research I discovered I have combination to oil skin. My cheeks are normally dry and flaky and my t-zone is normally oily. Last night I scoured Amazon and other beauty blogs for the best product.  Continue reading
