Friday Rewards


Hallelujah! it's Friday!

I don't know about you guys but on Friday I feel exhausted and so relieved I can rest. My best way to re energize? Shopping of course!
I love to buy new items on a Friday because I am already in the city, and feel like I deserve something for the weeks work. Retail therapy?

Joe Malone London
Dark Amber &Ginger Lilly Cologne



This is something everyone seems to be talking about! I was really curious on about this scent. I had heard Joe's entire line was for both make and female but I had never tried any of the fragrances

To me it smells more like a fall scent. Wood, honey, and some jasmine background? Light ginger. All I kept thinking was... interesting...

I had walked around the store but before leaving I bought this. It is limited edition and it is definitely something different from the other items in my perfume collection. It's kinda sweet, but I can see some men definitely wearing this.

TRAGIC: The sales associate was soooooooooooo nice. He had given me a bag of multiple samples of many many of the colognes. Him being so nice made me want to buy this scent more. When I went back to purchase my item we were chatting, all I kept saying was "interesting!" lol and paid for my item. Unfortunately I left my huge bag of samples at the register =*( I really wanted to try JM's other scents. In the store I can only smell so much before I get a headache, I wanted to take my time. I was too distracted, still sad... lol

I had returned my Benefit eye shadows from my last haul post. Sigh Benefit will we ever meet eye to eye?
With my returned gift card money I bought a few more items

Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc
Peach Mosaic

I have been loving Miss Mercier lately


I last bought a blush in Lush Nectarine ( love it) wanted to try to pair this on top. Peach is a my obsession this week. I like her shimmer bloc packaging more than her blushes, less hassling design to open, and much larger

NARS Lip gloss in Dolce Vita
Dior Ultra Gloss in Apricot Cloche 436


Nars Dolce Vita lip gloss, I had to get this.
Dolce Vita blush (highly under rated) with the corresponding lip gloss and lipstick creates a very easily amazing effortless face. Been wearing the other two all week! now I can add the gloss.

Apricot Clouche is feeding my peach habit. I am not crazy about n*de lipsticks so placing gorgeous glosses like this one on top really makes them extra special
Packaging is kinda clunky though... but it's ok, it's Dior after all =)
