Beauty Products for a Steal

Good evening everyone! As you may all know, I love a good bargain especially when it comes to high end beauty products. It’s often rare to find Urban Decay for a discounted price until Nordstrom Rack!

Nordstrom Rack sells items from Nordstrom stores at a lower price. (Their sale section is HUGE!)

My friend Claire told me about this a while back and I hadn’t bought anything until today.

I found Urban Decay‘s De Slick XL for $17.97 which usually retails for $34! The best part if this purchase is that I love this product and I didn’t want my smaller container to run out just because I dreaded spending $30!

They also have a few UD palettes that are a bit older but still beautiful. In addition, they carry Primer Potion, NYX, OPI, Bare Minerals and many more.

Do you all have a Nordstrom Rack around you? if so, let me know in the comments 🙂

Happy shopping!

Oscars 2013: Favorite Red Carpet Gown

Happy Oscars night!

There have been some amazing looks on the red carpet this year. However, I can’t seem to stop thinking about Naomi Watts beautiful Giorgio Armani gown! The gown, hair and accessories are absolutely STUNNING!

What’s your favorite red carpet look this year? Let me know in the comments below!

Prabal Gurung for Target

If there is something that I absolute love, is a good deal. Now, things are even better when you can get a really good quality piece for a fraction of the price. Therefore, thank you Target for bringing some pretty nice high end items at (usually) reasonable prices. Their newest collaboration is with Prabal Gurung and you all know that I had to check it out. I was immediately attracted to the flowery patterns and colorful options.

I have recently been on a hunt for a new pair of black heels and it so happened that Prabal’s line has a gorgeous pair. Of course, I picked them up at my nearest Target and I couldn’t be happier!

They are a strappy heel with a plastic string that ties at the top and a zipper on the back so it’s very easy to put on. Now, I can say that they feel comfortable when I tried them on but we all know that those feelings go away very quickly after wearing them for many hours.

This line has many more cute shoe options and incredible clothing items. Let’s just say that I had a very hard time leaving Target with just one Prabal item. I’m so excited to wear these babies in many outfit of the day/night so please get ready!

Hope you all enjoyed this post! Please let me know if you picked up any item from the Prabal Gurung line for Target.

 

Eylure at TJ Maxx

Happy Thursday! Just wanted to quickly share that TJ Maxx is carrying Eylure Falsies in a three pack for $7.99! What a deal!! That is about $2.66 a pair. I found them around the perfume area.

New Year’s Eve Nails

Happy 2013 everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday season full of joy!

Now I know I am not alone in this but my favorite part of celebrating New Years Eve is getting all dolled up with my greatest sparkly clothes and makeup! This year was no exception and my first step were my nails.
I used Lincoln Park After Dark from OPI and Sparked by Wet and Wild (On Sale right now for $.79!).

NYE nails

Directions:

Step 1: Apply favorite base coat
Step 2: Apply two coats of Lincoln Park After Dark
Step 3: Let dry
Step 4: Apply a line close to the top of the nail with your favorite glitter polish (Do NOT let this dry!)
Step 5: Clean off glitter polish brush
Step 6: Pull down the glitter with your brush for the ombré effect
Step 7: Repeat as desired
Step 8: Apply favorite top coat

Hope the steps make sense! Feel free to ask any questions in the comments section if you are confused.

I did this on my toes as well and love it! I will definitely do this again with another color combination.

Here’s a peek at my New Years Eve look! I went for a simple look with vampy lips and bouncy curls.

Micheal Kors at Ross?

Happy Saturday everyone!

A lot of my friends know that my favorite store is Ross. It’s like a treasure hunt that requires some work but is so worth it when you find that one piece! On a recent visit to Ross I found an amazing Micheal Kors dress. Yes, you read correctly, Michael Kors! Here’s the best part….

$13.99 for a $99 dress! I know what your thinking, the dress is probably out of date and not that cute…

Check this baby out! This cute color block dress is all mine and I already have a few ideas of how I am going to style it. This is the perfect holiday dress paired with some stockings, boots, cute belt and a chunky necklace.

As always, these posts are encouragement for all of my readers to go check out your local discount stores. Sometimes they are hit or miss but those hits make up for all of the misses!

Ways To Help Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

My thoughts are with everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy. I want to share this wonderful post by Kellie with different ways for us to all help. Please check it out. We need to come together and help out as much as possible!

LE ZOE MUSINGS

I received a call tonight from my sister who lives in NYC informing me that the babies in Staten Island are in need of baby formulas and diapers. As a first time mommy, it broke my heart and can’t ever imagine my Zoey not having clean diapers or enough to eat. I’m doing my part (to the best of my ability) to make sure that the babies receive whatever they need through this tough time and am just so grateful that I’m in a position to be able to help.

New York and its neighboring states are suffering from the devastation caused by hurricane Sandy. Please help in any way that you can, whether big or small will be greatly appreciated.
