I promise to get back to a regular posting schedule soon. For now, I’ll leave you with a quick update on my recent purchases. I know I’m on a makeup ban, but my clothes have been raggedy and my skin has been misbehaving, so I thought I’d have a little Winter treat. (And excuse the poor lighting but my town hasn’t seen the sun in days.)
I ordered from Sephora the Clarisonic Mia in pink. They have just released a new one, but I decided that I don’t really need to pay $30 extra for an additional speed option that I probably wouldn’t use. I’ve only used the Mia for two days so I can’t say I see much of a difference, but I like it already. The size is very convenient for travel. The vibration is a little louder than expected, but I love the feel of it on my skin.
What really sold me onto ordering on the Sephora website were the deals they offered. I don’t care much for the three sample packets that they always included with my order, but this time around they also offered two deluxe samples. I picked a Bobbi Brown eye cream and the Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I ran out of the Shadow Insurance last month and had no intention of picking up a new one any time soon, so it’s nice to be able to carry a small one with me in my bag. I have never tried the Bobbi Brown eye cream before, but I’m looking forward to it. It appears very thick and creamy – plus there seems to be a lot of it!
I also picked up a few items from Urban Outfitters. I initially came into the store to get a journal I’ve been eyeing, but it wasn’t on sale in-store as it was online. (I can never understand why a business would have such price discrepancies.) Anyway, UO was having a sale on BDG tops, so I picked up a few sweaters and tank tops. I love layering my clothes during Winter, so I picked up a bunch of the tops in medium, thinking they would have a nice loose fit.
Some of them turned out to fit as expected, but most of the were way too big. BDG tops mostly run large with the exception of a piece or two. Very inconsistent. I don’t think I’ll return the loose tops, but I’m going to try to throw them in my dryer on high and hope for a little shrinkage.
