Value Village 50% Off Haul!!

Hey deary's <3
How are you all doing? Can you believe tomorow is the last day of August?! :( I do not want summer to be over!! It feels like it only just began! I definetly am not looking forward to be going back to school. I've quiet enjoyed spending all my time with Ava just hanging out and playing! She is so much more fun then being stuck in school. Oh well, I know it will better her in the end and that is all that counts! Anyways.....Value Village was having one of their anual 50% off days. I have not been to one of these since I was a teenager (I used to LOVE going to thrift stores) I remember driving past Value Village at 630am last year and there was people all lined up waiting to go in and I didn't know why. Well I guess it's because on 50% off days they open at 7am!! (I never knew this!) Sooo I woke up super early and got in on all the fun! I got a few cute things! But I must say it was extremely busy that morning and I think going at 10am would not be that much difference then waking up extra early to go! Anyways on to what I got.......

All this for $20!! Sweet deal!!

My Fall Clothing Wishlist!!

Hey Dolls <3
How have you all been? I went on a final "camping" (in a hotel? does that count as camping lol) trip this week!! I was going to do a post on Sunday before I left but I was busy packing mine and Ava's bags (2 girls gone for one week require a lot of stuff!!) Anyways when I got back I had an hour to kill inbetween appointments so I decided to pop into Sirens and 'browse'. I've been spending money like CRAZY lately so I'm trying not to spend any money so all I actualy bought was a nude nail polish (exciting right?!) Anyways they had all their new fall stuff out and oh my I have got the biggest wishlist for their store now!! I wanted to do this post with items right of their site but apperently they only have this lame little 'online catolouge'. (how silly is that?) So I searched a few sites and found just as great stuff!! These items make the fact that summer is coming to an end a little less bitter!!

                                         Rust Skinny Jeans $29.90 @ Forever 21

                                           Grey patterned Sweater $69 @ Urban Outfitters

                           Mustard colored Sweaters $13.50 @ Forever 21

Print Sweater Dress $21.80 @ Forever 21

                              Red Flannel Shirt $17.50 @ Forever 21

What are all your 'must haves' this fall?? I can't wait to see some great Fall hauls!!

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse

Hey girlys <3
I have wanted to try matte foundation instead of liquid for a while now and finally went out and got myself some. I have been a very big fan of Maybellines matte blush so I decided to go with their 'dream' foundation. Before I tell you about my experience I should note that I have VERY dry skin and it has been abnormally dry this year!
I chose Medium Sandy Beige but think I could have gone one shade darker because it is a little light on my face. I used my ELF angled foundation brush to apply and was happy with how it went on smooth. I wanted to try this foundation because I thought it would feel a lot lighter on my skin then liquid (I hardly ever use powder foundation because of my skin) but it was a little bit more heavy then liquid. Not a big difference but definetly not any lighter. I definetly want to try this again when my skin is not as bad because I am so in love with the blushers!!
You can find this foundation in almost any grocery or drugstore or any other place that sells cosmetics. I also found a wide range of other Maybelline products for discount prices on All Cosmetics Wholesale (including the matte blushes!!) I bought my foundation in London Drugs for $13 but I know you can get it at Wal Mart for around $10.
                                       Hope you all have a lovely day :)

Girls Night Out

Hey Dolls <3
Last week I went out for a very belated birthday night out. Since I got pregnant last April I've only gone out once so it was kinda nice to get out of the house without my little one. We went to a pub about 30 minutes from my house so I needed to bring Grant with me to be our designated driver lol! Clearly he had a good time!!

                                    He looks impressed right?? lol                                  
                                     Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Pink Boa

Hey Dolls <3
I have been lusting for a hot pink nail polish that looks BARBIE!! When I was younger I never wanted hot pink cause I thought it looked cheap but lately I've seen it on lots of people and it does not look cheap at all!! I find this hot pink polish in Wal-Mart for about $2.50 (can't beat that!) It's Wet-n-Wild and is called Pink Boa. I find the Wet-n-Wild polishes can be hit and miss on their formulas but lately I have gotten lots of hits!! They must be improving :) I LOVE this nail polish!! I think it looks best on my nails at this length cause they are finaly starting to grow!! (minus my thumb :(  ...... ) It is amazing to apply!! Dry's perfectly even and in no time at all. I would recomend this to every girl! You definetly need this color in your collection!! I can not stress how much I LOVE IT!!

What are your fave nail polish colors right now??
