New Year Sales Haul

Another haul post! I feel like I’ve done a lot lately. What with my birthday, Christmas, and now New Year’s…this is the time where I have the least amount of self control when it comes to shopping. But now, I’m back on track with my budgeting and keeping a beady eye on my impulsive shopping nature.

But first, here’s what I’ve bought since the Christmas madness!

Beauty

makeup

Even more makeup. I have so much fun trying lots of different products, and sometimes it leads to falling in love with a product. This seems to encourage the cycle. Anyway, I bought the Stila Stay-All-Day liner in Midnight, the Wet’n’Wild Crease Brush and a NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London.

I like that I now have a non-black liner, even if it is a dark blue. It’s good for experimenting! Also, the liner literally stays all day, and does not smudge. The eye brush was highly recommended on Influenster, and I really like it. I wanted a blending brush, and this one is amazing for it’s price. I already can’t stop wearing the lipstick, and I’m considering getting more!

skin and hair care

Some face cleansers and shampoo, as I was running low. I bought the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, OGX nourishing and Coconut Milk Shampoo, and Formula 10.0.06 Best Face Forward Daily Foaming Cleanser.

So I bought the Daily Foaming Cleanser first. I absolutely love the fruity scent. It’s Passionfruit and Green Tea, it smells and feels refreshing when I put it on. It also foams a lot, which is fun. But, I did notice that after a few days, afterwards my face would feel a little oilier. I also got a few breakouts, which is a shame as I do like it otherwise. So I bought the Cetaphil cleanser to use every day, and save the other one for maybe just once a week. I have only used the shampoo for a week, but I love it. I’ve never heard of this brand, but it makes my hair smooth, shiny, and smell like coconut!

Hobbies

stationary and scrapbooking

A whole bunch of knick knacks and stationary. Cause I love them all. So I got a bunch of scrapbooking things as I want to get back into it. This includes some lace adhesive, paper flowers, patterned cardstock, and a scrapbook. The scrapbook looks so cute on it’s own already. Brown, with gold words saying “Live a Great story”. I also bought a sushi notebook, a cactus trinket, and a small rose gold pocket mirror.

craft jars

I have a vague idea of what I want to do with these tiny craft jars. Also, they were on sale, and I just wanted them.

paint and canvas

You may know me as the girl with a million interests and hobbies. Well, these were also on sale, and I thought it could be fun to mess around with. I’ve already mentioned that my impulse shopping is very high in December and January right?

mini cross stitch kit

I really miss cross-stitching. I didn’t think I would have time to do a big one, so I grabbed this tiny hot air balloon one to do.

Home Decor and Electronics

pineapple chalkboard

We saw this in Kmart, and thought “Why not”. Now we have a pineapple chalkboard to leave messages and/or doodle on in our kitchen.

tv

We got a new tv. It’s 51-inch, which is ginormous for us. We’d been considering getting a bigger tv for a while. We finally gave in, and now it’s easier for us to see what we’re doing when we’re playing games.

phone cover

Finally, I got a new phone cover. I love the wallet ones as it means I don’t need to bring my wallet everywhere. My old one was literally falling apart, but I had been using it for almost 18 months now.

Did you guys buy anything over the New Years?
