Spring 2014 CVS Haul

So...I've been a bit naughty.

I mostly blame CVS for having such ridiculous sales and an amazing customer loyalty program. You could say it would have been more naughty for me to pass up the opportunity to get some of these products at the prices I did.

Whichever way you want to look at it, I've amassed a little collection of new beauty products since my last drugstore haul post. Here's a rundown of these new goodies I'm putting to the test.

Sephora Rollerball Collection

Good morning beautiful people!

I have a bit of a splurge purchase to share with all of you. I picked up this set a few months back (at the same time as my Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Duos, actually) as a belated Christmas present to myself. I don't know about you, but to me there's something especially exciting about discovering a new favorite fragrance. They aren't something that I purchase very often, with the coveted space on my dresser reserved only for a few signature scents that I'm head over heels in love with. And while the bottles that are currently occupying that space are still wonderful, I was itching to add something new to the mix.

Enter the Sephora Favorites Rollerball Collection.

March 2014 Glambag

Today is a good day.

The sun is shining, the temperature outside is nearing 60 degrees, and I am currently taking a lunch break during what has been a much needed spring cleaning rampage. Yesterday I threw out three trashbags worth of random junk that was left over after reorganizing the closets in my bedroom.


And that was just one room.

I don't know about you, but I always feel a million times more relaxed when my house is clean. It never seems to stay that way for long, despite my best efforts. But in fairness, it's much easier to make a mess than it is to clean it up.

Aside from my tidying to-do list, I also have quite a lengthy blogging to-do list to get working on. One of the first things I realized is that I never reviewed my March Glambag. I'm pretty terrible about being timely about these kinds of things.

This month subscribers received four, rather than the usual five products, although considering what they were, I'm not complaining all that much.

A Little Birdie Told Me... Vol. 1

I've been eagerly anticipating the end of March so that I could finally roll out this post. As I've gotten more and more invested in writing my own blog, I've also been spending a proportionally large amount of time reading other blogs and admiring the work they do. As excited as I am about some of the things I've come across, I decided to start this new series. Each month I plan on bringing you a small collection of my favorite recent posts from blogs I love.

Spring Things - Pink & Coral Drugstore Picks

If you haven't already noticed, I'm really excited about spring.

I would say maybe a little too excited, but then again, can you really blame me?

One of the things I love most about this time of year is the explosion of color everywhere- in nature, in homes, on racks and shelves in stores. When I was much younger (think circa 1992) my favorite color in the world was undoubtedly pink. I don't even know if "favorite color" properly expresses my complete obsession, but we'll roll with it. As I've gotten older I've found myself head-over-heels in love with pink's slightly more sophisticated cousin, coral. Regardless, both of these shades are equally perfect for the transition into the bright, happy, warmer months to come.
