I made the choice to collect Hello Kitty memorabilia for my little one....Last week I started with her 1 year birthday party. Let me just say that I am one very tired momma! One Hello Kitty themed party for my baby, a b-day dinner for my husband and in between all that managed to do a little shopping :)
I hope everyone is enjoying this springtime....I thought I'd share some pics taken from baby's party....
I've always kinda been the crafty one, so I made these candle holders for the party after a friend of mine designed some last Thanksgiving...Loved the way they came out!
Her birthday outfit consisted of a personalized embroidered onesie and matching bloomers. I ended up buying her the tutu after I had seen them on Etsy...It is so cute! We are taking her to the studio this weekend to take her official 1 year old pics and she will be wearing this outfit :)
And of course the cake, which had to be done in Hello Kitty, which was also the theme of the party :)
Her Hello Kitty Easter Basket!
During my 'skincare' kick (which I am still on!) I did a little makeup shopping....I received a tiny sample of Sephora's Plumping lash mascara and after using it a few days I absolutely loved it so I ended up buying the full-size version. At my most recent trip to the CCO I picked up Clinique's glossy mascara....I love the brush on this mascara! And I also wanted to try out NYC's new line of mascara.........this one is the high-definition/volumizing one.
Another trip to Dollar Tree! And I just wanted to mention that Dollar Tree now has ELF's Studio line single eyeshadows!
They have a variety of about 7 colors to choose from, I know these are regularly $3 each so for only $1 these are a steal, especially if you are one that loves these!
Ok, so back to the haulage. I picked up some of Maybelline's Wet shine and Revitalizing polishes. Loreal Hip lip glosses are available at Dollar Tree too....I picked up Enticing-which is a rich true red. They had some other nice colors but were too close or matched some colors I already own.
Wet n Wild spring collection of polishes came out so I picked up 2 out of the 6 they had. I got Laughing Lilac and Birdbath. The Laughing Lilac is actually a very nice color. I wouldn't call it a dupe for MAC's Love and Friendship or Essie's Lilacism....this color doesn't even come close....It is beautiful and probably one of the most nicest lilac pink colors I have seen. The Birdbath polish doesn't come close at all to China Glaze's For Audrey. Birdbath is a very nice bright sky blue creme.
If you visit me at my home you'd be curious to know why I own every season DVD set of the show Everybody Loves Raymond....Only one reason I collect them is because I really adore the show! So naturally it's expected that I pick up Wet N Wild's newest red polish in the fast dry line called Everybody Loves Redmond. So the name is a bit cheesy but I couldn't help it :) Once in a good while my local grocery store puts out coupons for makeup so I picked up Wet n Wild lipstick in Stoplight Red and my favorite Rimmel lippie in Vintage Pink. I was hesitant to order ELF online but quickly emptied my shopping cart when I noticed Target had the items I was looking for! I picked up the blush Fuchsia Fusion which I have been wearing almost everyday. Went to Sally's to get some nail files and got a lipgloss and some other things. The Purple Rite lipstick I picked up from the CCO.
On a trip to CVS I picked up Sally Hansen's polish in Night Flight and a Covergirl Liquiline Blast eyeliner in black. I got a backup of my favorite LA Colors eyeshadow palette in Traditional from Dollar Tree and a cute doggie pencil sharpener and Hello Kitty body glitter came from my local grocery store. On the same trip to Sephora I picked up Sephora's blending eye brush in #29.
I've been getting into colored eye contacts most recently, I know....what's up with that? I just find them so pretty, especially with smoky eyes and different colors of eyeshadows that bring out the eye color....but anywho, while I was buying contacts I picked up some eyelashes!
And here is what I picked up from Sally's. I needed a 4 way nail file block and some nail files and I picked up Pucker Ups lip balm in Coconut which happens to smell exactly like a Coconut snowcone! yummmmmmm
I also got a Skin Renewal Toner which is now my holy grail of skin toners and will do a review on it very soon....loooooove it!
