July/August Haul

I will be doing an overall back-to-school haul, but for now I will be showing what I got during July and August (mostly tax-free weekend). This haul is quite small and a mix of things, but I am very excited to show you some of the items!

First up is the Benefit POREfessional Primer. I did not go into Sephora with the intentions of buying this or anything other than a palette, but like many shoppers before me I was tricked into buying more because of the cheap, mini products Sephora puts in line. To be quite honest I have wanted a primer and a Benefit product for awhile and since I have heard nothing but great things about this product I decided to give it a try.

 Can I just say that I do not care how late I may be with buying this Urban Decay Naked3 palette because it is absolutely divine. I have lusted after this since it first came out and I saw it blowing up my Tumblr dashboard and after months I finally bought it. I am not exactly the most adventurous person when it comes to makeup so the dressed up neutrals of this palette are perfect for me. It has everything I could want and need and will work perfectly if I want a subtle day look or a seriously smokey eye. I intend on doing a post and review on the palette itself, so stay tuned if you are on the fence about buying this gorgeous little gem.

I must admit that I have a slight obsession with the way the English dress. I love how everything they put on looks like the ideal mix of rocker, posh, and classic style. One item that I have noticed that is a staple in my favorite English idols' closets is a pair of Chelsea boots. Ideally I wanted a gray suede pair, but after seeing these in H&M on sale I couldn't deny myself from buying these babes. The heel is leather and the base of the boot is suede which makes the boots look a bit more expensive then your typical run of mill H&M shoes.

I firmly believe that you can never own too many scarves. Considering that I will be spending winter in the north I think it would be wise for me to stock up on as many scarves as possible. I did not have a lavender one such as this, and with it only being $4 why wouldn't I buy it?

To get ready for Destin I bought this cute H&M bikini top in my favorite shade of burgundy. I loved how the color looked against my skin and I also loved the embellishments on the ties. The H&M site is currently down for maintenance so I will try to link my swimwear later.

The second I saw this H&M bikini bottom I knew I had to have it. Not only does it match my scarf but it also look great with by bikini top. It was definitely a lot skimpier than I would normally wear, but I decided to take a risk and I was pleasantly surprised with the end results.

You may be sick of hearing this, but I'm moving to the north where the winters are brutal, so fleece lined tights are kind of a necessity. 'Nuff said.

Back to BDA

After 17 years I finally made it back to my birthplace of Bermuda. Although I could not remember ANYTHING about it I was blown away by how beautiful it was, unfortunately, my camera could not due it justice and I ended up recording most of what I saw. There are a few pictures below so feel free to browse them and as always I will try to link what I was wearing or similar items.

And my failed attempt of reaping my blog!

I'm Back!

So I apologize for my absence, any of you new college freshman understand what I mean when I say the last few weeks have been hectic getting ready for school. Along with college preparations I went on two trips, one to Bermuda and another to Destin, Florida. In an effort to make up for lost time I will be posting a few posts tonight and hopefully two more this week, because I will be officially moving to Boston on Sunday where I will be starting school! I am overwhelming excited and cannot wait for the new memories I will be making with new friends and a new state! I hope all of you fellow freshman have an excellent year and good luck to all my fellow students in general whether you be in high school or college!

Thanks for reading! xox
