I think I was very reasonable. Yes, I did have to leave behind 2 pairs of shoes, all the hair products I purchased, my Jack Daniel's® Original No. 7 Recipe BBQ sauce, my skinny jeans for the curvy girl, additional jars of J.R. Watkins Apothecary Lemon Cream (HEAVEN! - review to come soon) and my new collection of Color Club nail polishes. My suitcase was exactly the weight limit at the airport when I flew back: 50 lbs. I was so glad I left a lot of stuff behind. Still, I believe I was reasonable. Luckily, my parents are driving back and bringing back my goods this Easter Sunday :o)
And now, here is the rest of my purchases while I was on vacation (sobs because it's already over). I got this nice summer dress for $19.99. I thought it would be nice for the office. Even if I do wear it with my whore shoes!
Then I came across a little black dress. Until last year, I only had two pairs of black pants and two blacks dresses: the cute little sleeveless black dress and the black evening gown. I bought a Foxy Jeans black dress before the Holidays (love at first mirror sight) and now got a second little black dress. I liked its simplicity and yet the multi layers had a light touch to it. Like my Foxy Jeans dress and my skinny jeans, this one is a curve hugger. I didn't buy those shoes for no reason, did I? And at $15, the decision was not hard to make.
Speaking of shoes! How does one resist those Puma flatsies? Price tag was $57.90 before I received a 30% discount. It was the last brown pair in the store. My size. SCORE! I was also looking for black closed-toe shoes to wear in the office during winter; hence the pair on the right. Simple, black leather. Wear beautifully with pants or skirts. Lucked out at $47.90 with (smiles proudly) the additional 30% discount.
Last but not least, here is a picture of my Color Club set: Rebel Debutante. I was surprised that these are supposedly professional polishes. The red seemed to be quite streaky. I need to try it again when I get them back. I did not have nail polish remover (only one towelette) so I apologize for showing a different colour on each nail! Even if the picture is blurry, the streaks from the red polish are obvious. I swatched the colours in the collection from left to right. I still need to swatch the last two shades on the right (pink and mauve). I will definitely use the first one for french manicures and I just love the taupe shade! The lilac is a sure favorite as well.
It is definite: I am not a beauty blogger and more of a story teller! I will post my review of the J.R. Watkins Apothecary Lemon Cream regardless. A body moisturizer that smells this good for such a lengthy period deserves a post.
