I have rediscovered my love for Disney movies! Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and of course my favorite, The Lion King, just to name a few I’ve seen recently. Perhaps its the new Venomous Villains line from M.A.C. that re-inspired me, an amazing makeup collection which MAC collaborated with Disney to create. It features Malificent, The Evil Queen, Cruella DeVille and Dr. Facilier (from the princess and the frog). I may have splurged and bought about 7 pieces from the collection ^_^ Here’s a picture showing a portion of the collection, you get the idea.
I purchased 3 things from the Evil Queen collection, an eyeshow (pale lilac color) Her Alter Image, a purple-pink lipgloss called Hot House, and the pink Beauty Powder called Oh So Fair. I only got one Cruella DeVille item, the red lipgloss called Wicked Ways. I got 2 from the Malificent collection, a pink-lilac beauty powder called Briar Rose and a deep purple mineralize duo eyeshadow called My Dark Magic. The only Dr. Facilier item I got was the Magic cool liquid powder in Truth and Light, which is AMAZING. It is 70% water, sooo soft and liquid feeling to the touch (even though it is totally a powder) and even feels cool and wet when you apply to the face! It is a translucent shimmer color, a highlight or finishing powder. I had to try it, it’s so unique.
Work has been keeping me pretty busy, I’ve worked 6 days in a row but our gift with purchase ends tomorrow so things will quiet down after that. I am love love loving the new wing of the mall in which I work! I’d be lying if I said I didn’t do a little shopping, but I’ve been very well behaved and haven’t really bought anything yet. Some of the new stores I will mention that are in the mall now include: Abercrombie, Hollister, Forever 21, Armani Exchange, Urban Outfitters, Bench, Lacoste, Coach, Burberry, Apple (like Mac store), Lush, Keihls and a ton more. So exciting! And tough to resist…
I bought myself a new watch yesterday from work since we got 30% off for one day! Here’s a pic.
I was thiiiiiiiis close to getting a Micheal Kors watch, but I found the large faces on them not quite feminine enough for my taste. As gorgeous as they are. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect purse, and perfect black boots. I’ve shopped high and low, and have yet to find one of either I would buy. Sigh! I tried on almost every purse in Coach, but I don’t like the brass I like silver, and unfortunately for me they seem to be on a real brass kick at Coach at the moment. I will wait till they get new ones in, or maybe travel on up to the outlet Coach in Crossiron mills (if i feel like driving up to north Calgary for some reason haha) and see if they have any older styles there without the brass. There was a wallet I loved in Coach, but I want to get the purse first, then wallet to match. There were some over-the-knee flat leather boots I was liking at work, but of course were all out of sizes 8 and 9, so no luck there. Ah well, I will keep searching! and update you when/if I find any of these items!
At Kelly’s new place of employment (1850, a clothing store) I receive a 30% discount also… sooo I’ve picked out 2 guess pants I adore. They are skinny, stretchy, one pair is dark denim the other is all black so I can wear them at work. I chose skinny style so whenever I find my perfect comfy boots, I can wear them together for working during the winter. I have to be prepared for these cold Calgary winters!
Anyhoo, I hear puppies whining so I should tend to that. I took them for a nice jog earlier this evening so I’m not sure exactly what they want. I love going walking/running with them, it really gets me out exercising, Kelly too! We walk them 2x a day, usually take turns depending on our work schedule as to who does morning walk and who does evening. I taught Sherlock to high five! It’s super cute, he is SO SMART it’s unbelievable.
