December Beauty Haul

My First (mega) Haul!

December was a big huge haul month for me this year. First off, I started a beauty blog. Of course I had to buy some things I was curious about or read about! Secondly, it's Christmas! I mean... how many of you didn't get something beauty related for Christmas? Thirdly, I was born in December. So, all those bday gift cards got spent...

Sephora, Target, Birchbox, Whole Body

None of them are from one place. They came from either:
- Sephora (my fave)
- Target
- Birchbox
- Whole Body
- Ebay
- Amazon
- Gifts from others

Target, Sephora, Birchbox, Whole Body

Phew! Ok... that's all. Now, I want to hear from you on what you want a review on! What are you curious about? Want swatches? Don't spend your money. :) Let me tell you what I think!


  1. Wow!!! Look at all those toys!! Can I come play?

  2. I'm curious what you think of the Korres Mineral Foundation in Porcelain. I love the thought of using mineral but haven't found one that doesn't settle in the lines or that covers well. Let me know how long it lasts.

    1. I will do a review on it soon once I've used it a bit longer! :)

  3. I think you are reliving your childhood years with your Mauve fascination.....remember the very very Mauve sectional you were raised on from new born to what 2nd or 3rd grade? HEHEHE!!!

    1. I do! Do you have any pictures of it I can post when I do my mauve blog post? :)
