Gucci Gucci

I fell asleep looking at these gorgeous Gucci "Sofia" Crystal Embellished Platform Pumps. That's what happens when you browse the Nordies site late at night I guess. I'd so buy them if I had an extra $2,295 laying around. I guess I'll have to settle for some cheaper Steve Madden ones or something. Cheaper yes but way less fabulous than the real deal.
Sorry I've been away.. I've just had a bad week. I really haven't had much energy to doing anything at all -not even SHOP. Crazy right? Well, hopefully I get out of this funk soon.
Anyways, what dream shoes are on your list?
Have a beautiful Sunday everyone.

I used to do hauls where I'd post almost everything I purchased but I felt like those got rather boring. Seeing the same v-neck or striped t-shirt gets old. In the post, I featured items that were my "favorite" or the most "interesting" among the things I've purchased in the last few months.

Have a marvelous Sunday loves. <33

All I want is DIOR

 I know sometimes people hate to watch videos but you gotta see this! Makeup related too. <33
And this..

I have a really imporant midterm this week so until Thursday noon, it's all work and no play. Looks like no blogging until then but I figured posting a couple awesome videos was better than nothing! I really love both.

Hello Kitty Graffiti Eyeshadow & Blush Palette Review & Swatches

Repurchase: No
Price: $35.00 (eyeshadow- 4 x 0.07 oz, blush- 2 x 0.16 oz)
Overall Grade: B-

The Packaging: The Hello Kitty shaped compact is the answer to any Hello Kitty lover's dreams. The charming palette features a silver (mirrored) bow and colorful "graffiti" along the surfaces of the compact. When the top tier is opened, a nicely sized mirror can be found above the four eyeshadows. The second tier reveals the two blushes.

I absolutely adore the packaging. I really appreciate that they kept the classic kitty shape down the bow. Also, while the compact is a tad bulky, it's bulky enough to be sturdy yet it's not so bulky that it's too large for travel. It's love.

The Product: Aside from the cuteness factor, I wasn't crazy about the actual "product." While the eyeshadows swatch decently, applied, they're not so great. They were "too soft" which made them powdery which then resulted in some fallout. There was decent color payoff but eyeshadow primer is a MUST. The blushes weren't any different and I had to swatch them several times to pick up the color.
The Color:

  • Pale muted neutral gray with shimmer
  • Light-medium grayed blue with shimmer
  • Very pale, almost white, pink with silver glitter
  • Dark smoky charcoal gray with silver shimmer
  • Light warm muted brick red
  • Warm bright pink
Above (with flash): eyeshadows (clockwise), blushes (left to right)

Overall: While this palette does have decent quality eyeshadows and blushes, I would never use it. If this were my only palette, I could of course see myself getting some use out of it. However, with my collection, I would never reach for this when I have so many better options -it just wouldn't make sense. To me, this is more of a palette to get for "collecting purposes". If you're looking for top quality eyeshadows and blushes, this is not for you. But if you're only fishing for something "adorable", this is the palette for you.

Where To Buy: Sephora

Sanrio Charms

I stopped by Sanrio last week and scored a few items on a deep discount. This chararcter charms kit is my favorite. I got it for around $14 (orignal price $38).

I'm so happy with this little kit -just wish it included the Little Twin Stars!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday. <33
