Treat Yoself Birfday Shopping Haul [pic&word heavy]
I've gotten into that "treat yoself" kind of spirit one gets into when it's around ones birthday. That kind of feeling where you just want to spoil yourself to bits and pieces. You tell yourself, it's finally time to get that thing you wanted. Or is that just me o.o? Well, I ended up getting many many things all throughout my birthday month anyways. It's not often that I go shopping for non-work related clothing [or just without work in mind], or makeup stuffs in general. I decided it high time to get some new pieces in both departments.
With many trips to malls and shopping centers with friends and my fella all during May, it wasn't that hard to build up a little haul of some super cute things.

Still on a the makeup kick, I stopped at Sephora with a friend of mine. I decided to finally give "high end" makeup a try. If Sephora is considered high-end makeup, that is o.o? There wasn't very much I wanted to buy. There was a brush set, but it was sold out. The display set was even missing the one brush I wanted from the whole set. There were plenty of colorful eyeliners that I wanted, but I settled on only getting one along with my birfday freebie.

We ended up at Ulta that day as well. I'm still unsure how to get my bday freebie from them, but I picked up a couple different products anyways.
on the ones sold there. I also picked up another 3-step nose kit [TonyMoly] to have my fella try out. I'm excited to see if he likes it or not. If he does, then it solidifies my want to buy the ten pack I found online. I also got myself a little makeup bag. It's blue and looks like it could be a bandana print of sorts. I'm hellbent on finding a couple more, in aquatic prints. I picked up the Formula 10.0.6 Rescue me Acne blemish treatment since I'd been enjoying the other products I'd been trying from that line. Lastly, I got a little set of eyeshadow brushes.
I believe that is the jist of my makeup haullage. Now let's move on to the attire bits and bobs. I did have a mission for the clothing. I was supposed to be getting nice and flowy pieces for the hot months. Less dark clothing, and more things pastel or light. I also wanted to get my hands on a couple bodysuits, if not rompers.
I stopped at a store called Giti when Ladyfox and I went to the mall to visit Round1. Surprisingly, I was able to find some really lovely pieces!
We also stopped at the Rue21 [etc!] at that mall, and found one during our trip to the outlet malls. I found great sales both times. They each had a really good discount on top of their clearance prices.
We found an H&M, and boy was I excited...except I didn't find much!
The last stop at the outlet malls for me, was Charlotte Russe.
After all the mall visits were said and done, it was time to come home to my fella. He'd gotten back into reading for fun, and had finished the books he'd most reently gotten for himself. It meant a trip to Barnes & Nobles was in store.
I've had a lot of fun spoiling myself for this year's bday! I can't wait for the actual day, but if it's a nice chill relaxed day I think I can enjoy that.
Thanks for reading!
