Mini Mall Haul

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I just realized that my post for yesterday did not upload, so I have already uploaded it. Hence, why there is two posts today. Yesterday, I went shopping with my best friend and we went to the mall. She also gave me a few goodies and I gave her some as well. We also ate at Panera Bread. It was my first time eating there and it won’t be my last. Seriously considering reviewing restaurants that I’ve been to now. lol. Any who, this is everything that is new in my life since yesterday.

From Dani:


OPI Nicole Roughles in Rock The Look, 15 ml

I have already used this and I love it. It is in tomorrow’s Manicure Monday post.

Sally Hansen

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in 700 Cotton Candies, 11.8 ml

I am looking forward to using this in the next coming weeks depending upon how long my current mani lasts. I want to see how this one looks compared to the one above.

cream bath

Simple Beauty Angelic Pink Luxurious Cream Bath, 3.4 fl oz

Dani knows how much I love my baths. I take one almost everyday to relax. It is part of my night time routine. This one smells nice, similar to Avon’s Sweet Honesty with more of a baby powder scent. I will enjoy using this as a bubble bath, when I run out of what I am currently using. If you are wondering, it is a foaming bath oil.

bath fizz

Bath Fizzer

I figured that this is good for two uses. It is something nice to add to your bath, when you don’t want to be covered in bubbles. I’m hoping it is moisturizes or does something. The packaging does not say much, but it is pink and glittery!



I don’t know why the package says glitter, because they actually do not contain any glitter. They are more metallic than glittery. I cannot wait to use this in next week’s spread. I am working on it Monday, so you won’t see the last few weeks of my planner planning, until Saturday or Sunday. No sneaky peeks from me! These will make the grey and purple accents really pop against all the color.



This cute little number has dinosaurs on it, perfect for the growing little boy inside of me. It was only 1.50 USD, which is money well spent.



I found this at a great discount! It was originally 25 USD and I got it for 3 USD. These are cute for a little boy and I want to have at least 8 onseies like these for him to wear everyday. I currently have 5, so I have at least three more to buy for now. In a few months, that will be a different story. I’ve been buying 0-3 and 3-6 months though for some variety in sizes.



Claire’s Flat Kabuki, 6.50 USD (6.91 with tax)

I have really wanted a buffing brush for a while for my foundation. Every kabuki that I looked at was either short or too small. This one at Claire’s is a great size for a great price. I am hoping that it performs nice. It feels dense and doesn’t seem like it would shed. Only trying it will tell.


tinted moisturizertinted moisturizerswatchblended swatch

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Nude, 1 fl oz for 21 USD (22.31 with tax)

This blended in beautifully when I swatched it. It is the perfect color for my complexion and it is the fourth darkest color in the line. It surprises me that I take such a dark color, because I’m usually the first one or two in a line. This is a bit yellow toned, which goes with my natural yellow undertone. It should cancel out my ruddy cheeks from pregnancy. I’ve heard a lot about this brand, so hopefully it lives up to the hype.

eye cream

Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-enriched Renewal Cream, 0.5 oz (100 point perk)

I will be using this as an eye cream. I really wanted to try some more from the Origins line, so this was really nice to try. I feel like my eyes can most benefit from this cream. If I like it, I will try the orange line for energizing tired eyes/skin.


Fresh Soy Face Cleanser (sample)

The employee included a small sample of a cleanser from Fresh. I already know that I love their soaps, so it is just natural that I will probably love everything else that they make, too.



Dove Dry Spray Deodorant in Cooling Cucumber

I needed a new deodorant and knew that I wanted to try this one. I really like it so far, but it isn’t “dry” it definetly adds some moisture to your pits. I air dry mine for 2 to 5 minutes. I usually use that time to wash my face and put on socks.

acne wash

Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub

I needed something for the heat rash on my back and I remembered loving this in high school for the same reason. Pregnancy has made me rashy again and they can turn into big, angry pimples. This has reduced the intensity of my rash and with time, I think it will make it almost disappear. I don’t think it will totally work, because again, hormones. Have you guys hauled anything lately?

My Attempt @ Sticker Making

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I am busy planning posts for July and scheduling them to post on certain days. I decided to upload all of my posts at noon time, so you can look forward to weekday noon posts. I’m not sure about the weekend ones. So far, I’m just planning the week ones and using my EC Planner to help me keep track of what days are done and which ones still need to be done. I have already decorated my July monthly spread, but you know it will look different when the month is over. There are always last minute things that you need to add that come up or things that get rescheduled.

Anyways, I decided to attempt to make stickers using my printer, label printing sheets, and free online templates. Here are the results!

My first attempt ended up in black and white, which I actually think is pretty to go along with September’s grey/purple theme.

I think that these look so pretty and will go along great with the July blue/red spread, which is a bit more orange than red. These will look great in the weekly spread and I’m so excited to use them! They are so cute!

I printed out a sheet for my dogs. They are little flags that say walk the dog, groomers, bath, meds, and other little things. This is great for me to keep track of meds that I need to order and the monthly baths. I am also going to be taking them to the groomers to get their nails done, since I cannot file them myself anymore. It’s not safe even with a mask. You could still inhale particles. So, twenty dollars every two months or so will keep both doggies nails in tiptop shape. That’s including a 6 dollar tip, too! It’s only 7 dollars for a nail trim. Serena could be 5, because she is so small. The second sheet is for things like bills and groceries, reading, keeping track of internet usage, and how many days I spend outside.

I really love the stickers that I made and I will make more as time goes on. I think that I will print monthly stickers that go with the theme like the first two and then print other stickers based on what I do in real life. I can go to Michaels for thee decorate stickers, plus I have a lot of decorative stickers already from my scrap-booking days.

Aren’t they adorable on wash day? They love the warm blankets and sweaters!
