In the morning, we had brunch -I had steak with mushrooms and rice (that he made me) and he had a sandwich -I think my meal was better. =) We hung around the house for a bit and ended up taking a nap.. I've been so tired lately especially with all the schoolwork I have to do. When we got up, we headed to a Japanese restaurant for some sushi.. it was DELICIOUS. We ordered Spicy Chicken with Rice & Salad (I love salads at Japanese restaurants), a Spider Roll, Unagi, and Baked Mussels -pretty much all my favorites. Afterwards, we headed to the mall so he could get me something from MAC.
I chose the 168 Large Angled Contour Brush. I'm happy to announce that I am no longer a MAC Brush virgin. I've stated before that I've never owned any "real" MAC brushes -I did have a SE 168 awhile ago but I gave it away because it was horrible and I hated it. I haven't tried this brush out yet but I will tomorrow and all throughout the week. I hoping that this will end my search for the perfect contour brush. I've always wanted this brush and it's been on my list forever but honestly, it's so hard for me to be willing to spend $32 on just one brush (but I guess quality over quantity right?)Classic Black Canvas Toms. These have been on my list for quite a while too -we actually looked for them while shopping in the city last week but Nordstrom didn't have my size (size 5) in any of their stores or online. But I got lucky! On Tuesday, my boyfriend's sister called and said she found my size so she picked them up for me. I'm so happy because they never have size 5 Toms anywhere around here (or on the Toms website.)
I loved the way that everything was packaged. Clean, simple box (recyclable) with minimal designs and writing. When you open it up, there's a Toms "flag" that comes with the shoes.
And lastly, here's a GWP I got from the Lancome counter at Macy's. I got suckered into buying products because I really wanted the GWP. I bought the Absolute Powder in Golden ($53) and the Flash Retouche Highlighter in 02 ($28) that Jason had used on me during my appointment.
When I got home, I realized that the purchase was way out of my budget and I had to return everything despite the fact that I really did love the 2 products and the GWP. I brought everything back to Macy's on Saturday when I went with my boyfriend and did the return. Surprisingly, she took back the 2 products and said I could keep the GWP since it wasn't on the receipt! Usually when I buy something at Macy's with a GWP, they awlays make me give back the GWP (which is understandable) so I was really excited. Basically, I got a free gift just for going to that appointment.
Samples! I got a full size toner and cleanser and also some deluxe sized products. I really hope the cleanser works because that's mainly what I wanted the GWP for (and the bag.)
Now I have a question for you.. Have you ever bought products solely for the free GWP or have you ever done that but returned the products and kept the GWP?! Call me awful but I know I've been guilty of it -usually it's because I actually want the products but they end up not working for me and the store allows me to keep the GWP (in my experience, Sephora usually lets you keep GWPs but department stores usually ask for them back!)
Have a lovely Sunday everyone!
