A group of my friends and I ordered some makeup together (free shipping, whoo!) and I finally picked it up today when we were registering for our classes. The Urban Decay stuff was from the sale there were having. The palette was $10 and the cream shadow was $6! A week after we ordered the items we saw that the cream shadows went down to $3!! We all felt like we could've saved $3 but, it didn't matter because the palette wasn't in stock anymore and we all managed to grab one before they all went away! 

I also got two lipsticks from M.A.C. My first M.A.C. items that I ever bought! (My first Urban Decay items as well.) I'm very excited to use these lipsticks.

What I got: 
Urban Decay Preen eye shadow palette with mini Primer Potion and Zero 24/7 eyeliner; 
Urban Decay Cream Shadow in Whipped;
Coral lipstick (It looks darker than it is in person): M.A.C. See Sheer lipstick (lustre finish)
Pink lipstick: M.A.C. Lovelorn lipstick (lustre finish)

Good Clothes, Good Company, Good Times

Yesterday I went to the mall with a group of my friends for some shopping. I was super excited to get some more new clothes for school. I ended getting a couple things that I really love and I'm ecstatic about. I bumped into two of my old friends from junior high right when we all got out of the car. It was so nice to see them again.

We did some shopping in a few different stores, did tons of browsing, and bought some food from the food court. At one point, we all were in a store and two of my friends were acting ridiculously hyper. I was buying something and I heard one of the cashiers say to the cashier that was helping me, "Those two girls in the back are so drunken!" I couldn't help but laugh to myself! I retold the story to my friends once we were out of the store and we had a huge laugh about it. That will definitely be something to look back on. Hahah.

I fell in love with this blouse (Forever21) the moment I saw it. I'm super excited to have this in my closet!

I finally caved and got a pair of these cream oxfords. I got them from those small shoe stores in the mall. Now, I really want a dark brown pair!! 

I had a ton of fun yesterday! It was nice spending time with the girls before school started. Good times spent with good company. Perfect. (:

Sweet Deal

Sometimes when I go shopping, I find the best things on sale. A while ago, I went to the mall and found these Apostrophe brand wedged, strappy sandals on sale. The original price was $29.99 and the sale price was only $11.99! Definitely a sweet deal for a great pair of sandals! A great addition to my ever growing shoe collection! 

I love scoring great deals when I go shopping. Something about the thrill of getting an item for a ridiculously lower sale price is amazing. It takes a little more searching and browsing, but it is absolutely worth the effort!

The August Effect

This week I picked up my registration forms for school. So, I spent yesterday filling them out and asking my parents to sign a multitude of papers. As this happens every year, I'm glad to say that I only have to do it one more time next year. Filling out registration papers only remind me that school is slowly creeping up around the corner and that my summer is coming to an end. Soon I'll be waking up at 6:30 in the morning instead of sleeping in, being at school instead of being at home on the internet, and staying up late to finish homework instead of watching late night sitcoms.

Also, considering this year will be full of stressful things like SATs and college applications, I'm starting to realize I'm going to have to grow up sooner or later. I'm still excited none-the-less. I have a feeling this year is going to be an interesting one. Gah...which reminds me, I still need to go back-to-school clothes shopping. At least I managed to slowly start that by buying two new shirts this week from Forever21.

Along with clothes, I need a new school bag. My bag from last year is slowly falling apart! I seriously need to hit the mall within the next 3 weeks! I guess I'll leave you with a picture which I found on tumblr that pretty much explains what I'm feeling right now about summer slowly ending.
