This & That Fridays – March 17

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

what’s going on with me…

I can’t believe we are already halfway through March – this year is flying already.  Not that I’m complaining – I’m 100% done with Winter and 200% ready for Spring.

Last weekend I went to return the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue at Sephora and even though it was well before the 30 day return period, I had my receipt and original packaging, I was made to feel like a criminal by the salesperson.  This is the second time this has happened to me in less than a year and I’m kind of getting fed up with it.  Do better Sephora!

I was hoping to get my Nail Polish Declutter up yesterday but actually going through it, taking the pictures and doing the blog post ended up being a lot more work that I expected.  Also I’ve discovered that I’m oddly attached to my nail polish which is ridiculous.

have you seen/tried/heard?…

This story warms my heart…

Have you heard Alessia Cara’s new song with Zedd – I love it!

Gap “wins” again for bringing back button fly and acid wash jeans.  Someone please stop them.

recent purchases…

I usually do a hand soap haul at Bath & Body Works every couple of months and I recently picked up two of the of the Honolulu Sun fragrance.  First of all I hate the scent – I can’t describe it but it’s almost like a public bathroom soap scent.  What’s worse is that it’s actually triggered my eczema – and I know this because I stopped using it and my eczema went away and I tried using it again and it flared up.  I’m thinking it’s perhaps the blue dye in it but ultimately I’m just going to stop using it.

Since I’m trying to declutter my nail polish collection, I thought it’d be a good idea to this one to my collection because #yolo.  But honestly – such a good idea – I LOVE it!  It’s so pretty and very Spring appropriate.

I finally bit the bullet and got myself a new purse.  I can’t find the exact style online, but it’s a Fossil that is very similar to the Preston Small Flap except it doesn’t have the expander zipper on the bottom – but I wish it did.  It feels a little compact but I think I just need to get used to transporting less in my purse.

currently coveting…

I would never spend this much on a desk chair so I’ll just admire this one from afar.  However if I could pick any chair I wanted, this one would top the list.

Gold Pineapple Printed Tom’s?  Yes please!

Very intrigued by these new Tarte lipsticks – specifically Set Sail.

Such a cute LBD

Leigh-Ann Says – Finding Out What Makes Me Beautiful

Leigh-Ann is actually the first YouTuber that I started watching so she holds a special place in my heart.  Despite this being a sponsored video, I really liked the message she sent in it.  Experiences over things!

    How awful about your experience with returning at Sephora. I’ve never had so much as an attitude or negative remark! I don’t return often either and always feel guilty about doing it but they are always really understanding and sympathetic.

    Button fly jeans should be outlawed.

    Cute purse! I don’t have any purses from Fossil, just wallets. Maybe I should give them a look.

    Leigh-Ann Says is hilarious. I haven’t watched her for ages – I don’t feel like I relate to her as much anymore though (me getting too old? XD )

      Definitely recommend Fossil’s handbags. They’re not cheap but they are really good quality!

      I get like that with some You-Tubers. I used to love Coffee Break with Dani but all she does is GRWM’s lately and I’m losing interest. I’ve never really lost interest in Leigh-Ann I just wish she’d do videos more often! 🙂
