Loft Haul




Back in October I went into Loft because they were having a 40% off sale on their sale items.  Since it was such a long time ago, I don't have the receipt anymore, but I think I only spent a little more than $100, maybe $125?  Anyway, I got a few items for a very good price.

My Small Adventure: ACL 2014





I went to Austin City Limits this year during the first weekend.  I got the tickets pretty early, sometime around May, maybe?  They really are crazy expensive something around $400?

Austin City Limits, or ACL, is a three-day music festival, and this year it took place during two separate weekends.  I went the first weekend of Oct 3-5.  I didn't get to go on that Friday, I had school and it was easier for us to just leave that night and just go on Saturday.  I also didn't get to go on Sunday.  My boyfriend was really tired from the day before and we're not really crowd-loving type of people.

Some of the artists I saw included the Avett Brothers, Rebelution, Juanes, and a bunch others I don't know the names of, but I do know some of their songs.  

Also, ACL has some awesome little tents and artwork set up for you to take pictures of and buy.  I bought a really cool poster of The Blues Brothers (one of my favorite movies) that I have yet to put up because I need a cool frame.


Kate Spade Earrings

Such a late post.

I've been really busy with school and work and blah blah blah, so I haven't really been able to keep up with this blog.  However, I will be doing a bunch of posts within the next few weeks.  Mostly because I have still been gathering gifts for loved ones and I like talking about them because I can't talk about them with everyone else because they're gifts!

Back in September, (I know, I know) I bought some earrings from Kate Spade during one of their 75% off events.  I had a hard time deciding who to gift these to, because I know everyone would love these.

I got three pairs of earrings for $77.22 and they all came in these cute little personal bags and I think that's the perfect touch as a gift.

Lorac Haul from Hautelook

My hand slipped.  I saw Hautelook had Lorac on sale and bought some stuff.  Lots of stuff.  Initially, I was going to get something for myself, but then I realized that I should probably start some holiday shopping.  This year I'm doing something really cute for Christmas, I'll get into that later once its more than just an idea.

Vegas Collection by Makeup Geek

I pre-ordered Makeup Geek's new Vegas Collection and I couldn't wait to open it up and play with the colors.  The collection features five pigments and a six-shadow palette.  This is the very first palette Makeup Geek has come out with and it includes five new shades.


It arrived at my dad's office in this tiny package and I wasn't too sure what it was until I saw the shipped label.  OMG, FINALLY!  I didn't opened it until I got home so I can have a background to take cute pictures of the products with. 


Before I pulled out the stuffs inside, I saw this cute, little note with my name, handwritten on the front.  They know me! I thought that was a really nice, personal note.  Makeup Geek really knows how to make a gal feel wanted.






I pulled out the bubble wrapped, little packages and started rearranging them in a cute photo to post via Instagram (@maggiegee008 ;)  Lets talk about the pigments first.  There are five different pigments that are very, very full.  I opened the first one very carefully and it immediately got all over my hands.  Honestly, that doesn't really bother me, but all I could think was how much wasted product is now on my bed sheets. Anyway, the first one here is Vegas Lights.

 


Vegas Lights is a very chunky, glitter pigment.  It's a very shiny, copper color.  It reminds me of Fall and pumpkins.  I have no clue what to with this pigment other than pair it with black, but it looks so gooooood.



Next up is Poker Face, I really don't like the name.  I get it, Vegas, haha, poker, haha.  I don't know man. The name is blah.  However the color... is sooo pretty.  Poker face is one of the new pigments they have out.  It's a really browny, bronze color.  I don't think I have anything this pigmented in my collection.




Night Life is my favorite color of all the pigments.  It's like a rosy taupe, almost mauve color.  I actually wore this recently and it blended so nicely and it was so creamy.  Ugh, I love this color so friggin' much.




Liquid Gold is another pigment that Makeup Geek already had.  This color is a true metallic gold, it has a bit of greenish tones in it.  Again, I have no idea how I'll wear this but I'm sure I'll think of something.




Lastly, Jackpot!  I love this name, mostly because I like yelling it.  JACKPOT!  Anyway, this one is also a new shade added to Makeup Geek.  It's a very light and shimmery pale-yellow.  I can see looks with this one.  I see the future and it's... pale... ok.




Let's talk palette's, yeah?  Makeup Geek released a palette with the collection and I can't get over the design.  It's got this gold, reflective outline of the Vegas skyline and these large, pinky graphics of card suits on it.  I really like the design man.  The palette includes a mirror and six shades, five of which are new.  The neat thing is that you can take out the eye shadows pans with a magnet, so that you can transfer it to a z palette of something.  



The new shades include Casino, Sin City, Roulette, Mirage, Desert Sands, and the veteran shade Bada Bing.

Stila from Hautelook

Hautelook had Stila on sale and I saw these suckers! At first I was just going to get Vivid Violet because I previously owned it, but I don't know know where it is. Anyway, I saw all three on sale so I decided to purchase all of them for $6.00 each! 



These lip colors are supposed to glow under a Blacklight, they're also moisturizing and they don't leave your lips chalky or anything. 


Festive Fushia


Vivid Violet is my favorite. 



Tangerine Dream



These are the swatches.

My Small Adventure: Antiquing

Recently my car was having some trouble so I had to bum rides from my boyfriend's mom and several other family members. 
This past Sunday, my boyfriend and his mom took me to a surprise trip to the antique mall up the street. There were so many amazing, little knickknacks and gorgeous furniture pieces. I took some notes and pictures for inspiration.

Shoemint

I ordered some shoes from ShoeMint.com.  This is the second time I've ordered from them, but I've ordered from their affiliates before.  Shoe Mint is a membership community, there isn't any obligation to buy and you can skip monthly if you'd like.  Most shoes run about $79.98 but I got these for $30 because there is always a sale.  Right now you could get 40% off using the code: ENJOY40, it ends Saturday, August 9th. 

I got the Zandra in black.  I have been looking for some classic black sandals and these are perfect.  They bands are elastic and they fit very well to shape of my feet because of that.  My favorite thing about is that the elastic straps give it a sort of a matte black look.  These are definitely a perfect addition to my shoe collection!

The only thing that does bother me about the shoe is they tend to move around a little more when I walk because of the elastic, but I think it will go away once my it conforms to my shape.  It's been the third day that I worn them and they are already starting to fit better.  I probably should have gotten a size up, since my foot is wider, but I don't think the elastic would've been as tight.
