My newest finds + purchases

IMG_7638.JPG

Hi everyone! Long time no blog! Today I wanted to share my newest finds and purchases because well, I have been using these 4 things religiously! I love when I purchase something and it really impacts my every day life, because that means it was an investment. I almost laugh at the word investment because I never purchase anything over $20…but for me, investment.

Let’s start with the shoes! I went on Charlotte Russe’s website because I absolutely love their shoes, and I already know they have great prices. Sure enough, I found two pairs of sandals (the same pair, two colors) and they were each around $12.00. I added them to my cart and purchased them. A week later they showed up to my doorstep and I think I’ve worn one color or the other every day since. I hadn’t bought a new pair of flat sandals since probably four years ago, so it was definitely time. I highly recommend finding a style you like and purchasing both brown and black, because it makes pairing them with outfits that much easier.

Next, I’ll chat about the perfume. I was browsing around Marshalls (per usual) when I came across some perfume. I was sniffing around and BAM, smelled this one that I absolutely had to have. Even better? It was only $12!!! The perfume has nodes of Bergamot, Tobacco Flower and Amber. It smells so sophisticated and I love to wear it as an every day perfume. The brand is Illume and the scent is Amber Dunes. I LOVE this!

Lastly, I got a coupon at CVS for 40% which, wow…for CVS that’s amazing. I knew I wanted to spend it on something special and something that would make the coupon worthwhile. With an event I had coming up, I decided to go with an eyeshadow palette by Maybelline so I went with the City Mini x Shayla palette. The colors are gorgeous and just what I was looking for. There is a lighter shade, two golden shimmer shades, a deep peach, a burgundy and then a black shade. Honestly I loved every second of this palette and the look I used it for came out so good and it was really fun. The palette is originally $10 at CVS and I got it for $6 with my coupon!

This was a fun little check in, I like to feature the products I purchase that work for me. I am so happy that each of these products are being incorporated into my everyday life too. 

‘Till next time!

XOXO, Rae
