Recent finds

I have picked up a few things over the past few weeks....some deals and some splurges.

First up, I kept reading about Rag & Bone jeans and how comfortable and wonderful they were. So I splurged with Christmas money and purchased the Skinny in Kensington. I wear jeans so frequently that I don't feel bad spending the extra dollars to get a nice pair. Don't get me wrong...I am a total cheapo and have 4 pairs of the $10 Forever21 jeans. Which are great by the way but you can definitely tell the difference once you get a nice pair.

I have worn holes in the toes of my gold sparkle Toms so decided to invest in a new ones. These showed up at my door yesterday. I think they will be good for now and into spring.

I was out returning things from Christmas and ended up finding two pairs of designer jeans at Marshalls.

Paige Denim Verdugo Ultra Skinny...The tag says compare at $140 and I paid $50.

Marc Jacobs Lou Skinny Black Jeans...the original tags says $187 and I got them for $39.

So happy with both purchases.

Michael gave me this perfume for Christmas. I picked it out and love it. I have been wearing Chanel Mademoiselle for years and definitely needed something new.

I posted here about some of my all time favorite drugstore make up products. I have added a few more. I started following this blog, The Drugstore Princess.  Hilary reviews and discusses all types of drugstore products. Check out her blog...she has great advice.

The Drugstore Princess recommends Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Touge as Taupe. So I purchased and it is great....the shade has more of a grey blue tint but I really like the consistency and the color. 

The Drugstore Princess also recommends L'Oreal 24hr Infallable Eyeshadow. I selected Endless Pearl. Sometimes, I wear alone with brown liner and other times I wear with the Tough as Taupe mentioned above.

Also found this Wet N Wild shadow from The Drugstore Princess. It is great and so easy to use  with each shadow  labeled for an area of the eyelid. Also, can't beat the price at $2.99.  

I am a lipgloss girl but decided to try Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter...I have to say it is not as hydrating as  it claims to be but I do like the color, Sugar Plum. 


  1. I am a Light Blue devotee -- I love that scent, especially for the summer. Tell me more about the designer denim. I am in the market for some new jeans -- which are your faves? I have a girlfriend that swears by Rich & Skinny (?), but I haven't found a fit that I like. :)
