Black Friday Haul!

So…. as I do every year, I went Black Friday shopping with my family right after Thanksgiving dinner. My family always likes to go during the night instead of waking up early to go because….we hate waking up! Unlike other people, we don’t really go to find great deals (although it’s always nice when we find one). Instead, we just use it as a time to spend time with family, get a jump start on Christmas shopping, and have fun.

SO, here is some of what we got.

Before we went to the mall, we stopped by Target because they usually have some really great stocking stuffers in the dollar section at the front of the store and movies for great deals. At the dollar section, I found some really cute silver and white Christmas trees for a dollar to put on my desk in my room. I also found some inspirational posters and a clipboard to use in my future classroom because I think that it’s really important to fill classrooms with inspiration to follow their dreams.

After we moved on from the dollar section (or rather my family forcibly removed me from the dollar section….) I found a pretty awesome passport holder that I’m planning to take to India with me very soon. I also got a 2018 planner which I love because it’s so big. I feel like it’ll be really great to put on my desk to plan out the year. It also has a lot of room to write to-do lists for each day which I use to destress.

And, of course, for me it wouldn’t be black friday if I didn’t get a few Christmas movies and books. This year they had Christmas classics for only $4 each, so I got some of my favorites that we watch as a family every year. I also got The Lion Kingย to add to my Disney collection (I’m trying to collect all the Disney movies and for some reason I didn’t have The Lion King yet which is crazy because it’s one of my favorites! The last movie I got was The Big Sick which is an incredibly awesome and funny love story. It reminds me of what me and my boyfriend went through when we first started dating, so when I saw it, I had to get it.

Next up was Old Navy, which was probably the craziest place we went the entire night since they had such great deals. I got two incredibly comfy sweaters which I absolutely LOVE and some pajama pants with little foxes on them ๐Ÿ™‚ They’re adorable!

The last two places we went were Lush and Sephora. (I didn’t take any pictures of what I got from Lush because I already broke the bubble bar filming the video and didn’t want to do anymore damage lol) At Sephora, I picked up a First Aid Beauty moisturizer which I got for a really great deal! I also got a Hoola Lite Bronzer which I’ve been wanting for a really long time since I think it will go really great with my skin tone. Last but not least, I got the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation which I’ve also been wanting for a really long time since it’s supposed to be a high coverage foundation that actually matches my pale skin.

Anyway, that’s everything I got during my Black Friday shopping trip! I hope everybody had a great and safe Thanksgiving!

Too Faced Peaches and Cream First Impressions

So, as you’ve probably seen from my September beauty wishlist, I was incredibly excited when I found out that Too Faced was coming out with another collection based on peaches. Let me just say, I absolutely love everything having to do with peaches! I love the smell of peaches, I love the taste of peaches, and I love peach makeup, so I absolutely had to get some of the collection. This is what I got!

Primed and Peachy

I have never actually bought a Too Faced primer. I did get their Hangover primer as a sample, though, and really liked it, so I decided to try out this one. It has the same smell as the rest of the collection which is amazing. You can definitely smell peaches like the other collection, but it’s not nearly as strong as the other one because the cream mixed in tones it down. When I tried it out on my hand, it blurred everything out perfectly, so I think that it will be great on my face.

Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation in Snow

I was actually kind of disappointed with this one. I got the lightest shade which works for me in their Born This Way Foundation, but this one was too dark for my skin tone. I was so disappointed because I was really looking forward to this one. I’m sure if you’re not really pale like me, though, it will work great!

Peach My Cheeks Blush in Peach Dreamย 

I really like this so far. It’s pretty pigmented which is nice. It’s also a beautiful pale pink which I think will look awesome on my pale skin during the winter. The formula is supposed to be new. It’s really interesting because it feels creamy when you swirl your finger in it, but when it’s on your finger, it’s more powdery. They also have a highlighter and bronzer in this formula which I didn’t get.

Peach Kiss in Drunk Dial

I absolutely LOVE the look of this lipstick! The actual lipstick has peaches engraved on the sides which is so adorable!! The color itself is a really pretty berry tone which is so perfect for fall!

Just Peachy Mattes

I personally believe this is a great palette for travel since it’s all mattes, is small, and has a big mirror. The feel like the colors could be really pretty for fall, but they could also be used for all other seasons by showing casing certain colors. Plus, it smells great, but it’s not too overpowering like the Sweet Peach palette can be.
