Shopping with Lilladylife Part II

I've lost my Metro source of endless travel around the city.
Until a new one comes in the mail I am to hoof it, luckily, I live in a walking town!

First off, Happy Good Friday to those who celebrate!
I had to go to work today and it was a complete ghost town  in the office so we had what I would consider a "Casual Friday" which wasn't so bad. I had a long lunch break and was able to window shop a bit.

Casual Friday work outfit for me
It's all about comfort today

During my lunch break I decided to go for a bit of browsing since the office was pretty much done for the day. Along with the fact that the weather was great!

I posted this bird statue last time but didn't realize when I was walking it is comprised of nails!

First stop is Zara

I totally fell for this Zara bag and walked around the store for a while with it. I loved the color and flash of red/hot pink for the zippered edgings. I ended up passing :(
It was a bit too wide for my frame and the closure was magnetic, not safe enough for me.
Still sad about this one...

I then entered the beautiful but semi quirky Anthropologie

Can you believe this bird foundation costs $1000?! (Ok, $995.99 + tax)
Look how skinny the beak is? All the liquid in that huge vessel and the spout is so small!

I ended up back to work after this point but we got off early (HOORAY!)
I had about four hours to kill so back at it!
I am determined to make a solid attempt at my wardrobe!

First off is Madewell
I spotted these shoes and stopped dead in my tracks
I mean, they are just screaming spring and white dresses, no???

I hate these kinds of heels but tried them on anyway

What do we think ladies? I tried them on like 4x! I finally decided to get them. I loved the colors, and if anything I can return them. Also, 25% off! SCORE!
PS: They're SO comfortable!
I know, another pair of shoes?!
I'm really not normally like this!

Entering H&M!

After several days of searching I finally found the black/gold tweed jacket Sandra mentioned in her videos.
It's quite heavy but I like it! I also spotted this interesting bag but passed. I liked the shape but it lacked a top zipper. I also left with a small white blouse with a flower applique design which I will show in an OOTD in the future.

Shopping mode is on!

A stop over in J CREW

I loved these shoes! They're exactly what I am looking for! But the price was not!
Left without these. Still looking!!

Last stop for clothes was Banana Republic
Not my favorite shop, but I appreciate that they have a petite section.

Eck to this grandma sweater! why is it so short?
I wanted a yellow sweater for spring :(

Hello Fraulein!!
G'bye Bananna! I don't care if you say everything is 40% off! 

Enough clothes shopping, it was time for some sustenance

These are the best brownies in the Farmer's market!
I always get these when I stop by! Not too sweet and large!

Quick stop at the bookstore while I munch on my new brownie
The things I picked up and browsed upon as I munch

When did the housewife and Jessica Alba write a book!?

Final stop of the night, a place I am quite comfortable in, Sephora!
I bought nothing! LOL

The boyfriend called and is ready to meet for dinner!

And the best part of the night, the finale with my man!

Hope you girls enjoyed my Friday!
Happy Weekend!

Not Biting the Beauty Bullet

My current wish list of kinda wants...
I kinda want these item's but not enough to actually get them...
Do you ladies keep lists like these?
I end up trying these on countless times, sometimes years, and just never bite the beauty bullet...

Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush: I have tried this on in the store several times and each time I think it’s nice....not $44 dollars +tax nice...more like $25 dollars.
First gift card I receive will go towards this item!
Dior Rosy Glow

Dior Incognito Palette: Probably the most blah looking quint Dior has to offer but I have tried this on too and can’t help but fall for the true effortless look.
I especially love the beige shade, I know, the most blah shade! But it does help brighten up my lids which are my favorite kinds of shades!
YSL Touche Eclat Foundation: After sample testing, this foundation is declared love!
Too bad liquid foundations are my least favorite base, thus I have several boxes of un usused can I justify this one  L

Buy Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat Online at

Burberry’s Earthy blush: This color in the pan looks interesting...not something i would usually go for, but the subtle sophisticated contour like cheek sculpting shade still has my interested peaked.

Laura Mercier Blush in Wild Bouquet: Meet MAC’s Tenderling but the peachier version. I envision quite the prairie girl effect with this blush. The hold off is waiting for the Laura Mercier site to offer some new samples because they are amazing quality.
Did I mention the samples haven't changed in over 3 months? I have been checking...

NARS Lip Stain Pencils: I love NARS and I love stains but I think I hate pencils! From Revlon to Clinique and the few NARS lip crayon pencils I own, I just never reach for them. The whole drawing on your lips with these crayons really seem to turn me off...

Are there any items on your wish list you are a bit hmmmm about?
For those of you who have tried or own any of the above, what do you think? Yay or Nay on purchase?
