Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream Review & Swatches

When I first purchased this eye cream, it was $3 cheaper. I also logged on to the Sephora website and  found out that I lost my VIB status. (I've really given up makeup, holy crap!) I remember the first time I tried it, I instantly fell in love. The SA at the Bobbi Brown counter gave me a sample of it when I first bought their eye liner. In fact, she gave me so many packets that I got to try it out for about a month before actually purchasing it!

It took me a very long time to purchase this product. It wasn't available in-store at Sephora and I didn't want to buy it from Nordstrom if it's a product I can get points on. It was $46 when I purchased it but now it's selling for a whopping $49!! For me, that's still cheaper than a lot of the eye creams I was considering on purchasing at the time. Plus, I wanted to spend up to 50 bucks so I could get free shipping but didn't want to spend more than I needed. After days of delaying, I finally found a product to settle on that would make me right at the mark for free shipping.

Collective NOTW's

After I got my dad handed me down his iPhone 4, I've been taking a lot more pictures of random things. In fact, I've been pretty good at taking photos of my nails everytime I do them! Here's just a quick post on that since I haven't made a new post in a while :)

Added some top coat to the nails before that one to make it more interesting

Closer details of the finish, yet the photo still uploads blurry.

Just something to look at, not really any explanations because I'm a bit lazy to go grab my nail polishes and see, but if you're interested in knowing, ask and I shall reveal ;)

As you can see though, I've been obsessed with glitters. They're easier than nail art, and they add some personality to my nails! ^__~

`til next time.

Travel Essentials

Requested by one of my best buds Linda on my instagram :)

If you follow my Instagram, you know I went on vacation to San Diego! If you're interested in following, my username is onlylindah.

On a side note before I get into this post, I woke up this morning and my eyelids were even! Not completely symmetrical but more than what they were before. ---actually I just applied eyeliner to see what it would look like and I'm really hoping when I wake up tomorrow they're back I normal! It has a hooded look to it and it makes one eye look smaller...sighh, beauty blogger problems.

Okay back to what the post is about! Below are all the items I brought with me on vacation, minus clothes unless you really want to see that in another post.

I was so prepared for this vacation only to find out my luggage was lost whenever I landed in California. That's a great way to start vacation especially a waste of money. Still going to dispute this with their head quarters through the company because it seriously ruined vacation. In case you're wondering, I flew via SPIRIT AIRLINES and I checked in on time and dropped my luggage in on time.

In the first pocket of my toiletries bag (will be shown later so you can kind've understand what I'm talking about) are my toothbrush, toothpaste, and shampoo and conditioner samples. I normally leave this out in the bathroom whenever I get to my destination.

The next pocket consists of my razor, eye drops, qtips, bobby pins, and hair ties. These generally stay in the pocket and usually shaving will be on my mind so I'll grab it before a shower if I really need to get the hairs tamed :p
