Haul: Pittsburgh - March 17, 2011- March 19, 2011

Hey y'all so I went to Pennsylvannia this week for MARCH BREAK! I did buy a few things so I thought I would share everything with y'all.  I am not trying to brag in anyway. Since I am very lazy, I decided to just google the pictures of the products instead of taking them myself.  I hope you don't mind, if you do forgive me? Let's get started!

The first thing I got is :
Tory Burch Classic Reva Ballet Flats

Yes, Tory Burch Classic Reva Ballet Flats!  I got these at Nordstrom for US$195 flat. To me this was a great deal because here in Canada they can be CDN$260!  I needed flats because I outgrew all of mine (I got a size 7) and because I needed a pair of comfortable flats for my trip to Paris - lots of walking planned.  I still need to break them in as the lady who helped me at Nordstrom told me they have be "tight be not uncomfortably tight" her reasoning behind telling me this is because they do stretch out a bit! This was my most expensive product!


The second item is:
bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer
I know BORING! I went to Sephora and picked this baby up. I usually buy the original formula but since I do have oily skin I decided to try this one out.  I have only worn it once but the original was my favourite primer.  Let me know if you want a full review/ comparison on this product.  For those who were wondering this was US$21.

Next product is:
Sephora By OPI's Rumba Romance
Sephora describes "Rumba Romance" as an "opaque metallic bronze".  A little tip when shopping at Sephora: always look at the small but helpful sale section (where I picked up this for US$5 - original being US$9.50).  There are always nail polishes on sale - right now one of my favourite colours are on sale "Caribbean Cocktail".  Anyways, Rumba Romance looks more like a gold bronze to me but that's alright I still think it's pretty and will look great on any skin tone!

Up next is....

OPI's Royal Flush Blush
I picked this polish up today actually.  I went to my hair salon and they had select OPI polishes on sale and this coral-pink colour caught my eye!  I can't wait to go back in 2 weeks to get more colours.  If I do get more I will let you know which ones. This was a limited edition colour from thee "Las Vegas Collection". I can't wear to wear it! Oh by the way: do any of you have/had gel nails?  I'm thinking about getting them for Europe!


The fifth product is:

Sudzz fx Cashmere Shampoo
"Sudzz FX Cashmere Hydrating Shampoo - Dry, brittle, severely damaged and misbehaving hair needs a well-deserved dose of conditioning and hydration. Bathe it every day in this rich, luxurious cleansing treatment and restore your hair’s precious moisture balance. A 100% Sulfate-Free cleansing system." This is what this shampoo claims! I picked this up today for CDN$24.50 at my salon, last week I went to get my hair cut and my hairdresser used this and it made my hair so SOFT!  I thought it was worth it to get it for myself.


Up next is...

Global Keratin Pro Line Hair Taming Moisturizing Conditioner
Although this picture is NOT how my bottle looks, this is what came up on google images (boo!). Oh well, this was the conditioner/treatment my hairdresser used on me last week!  It is quite pricey at CDN$64 but, it is worth it! I got the 1L/1000mL bottle and you only need a teeny tiny bit!  You take about a quarter size (depending on hair type) and put it in your hair and leave it in for a bit and BAM silky smooth hair!  This product is in fact meant to help straighten your hair (which I usually do).


Now for number 7:
AE Burst Graphic Crop T
I am in LOVE with crop tops! I found this for US$14.62 and I loved it!  It is quite short but just slip a tank under it and you'll be fine!  This is one of my favourite spring trends, and even though some seem opposed to showing some skin I love how the loose fit and the length contrast perfectly! 


The next item is....
GARAGE Stripped Pocket Tee
I picked up yet another crop top today at garage for CDN$20.23 (with tax).  I truly do love this, this top comes down longer than the AE one so I don't need to wear a tank top with it (although I am short).  I love how this combines 3 spring trends in one!  It has the crop top, the nautical theme and lace (on the shoulders).  I can't wait to wear this!


To the person who is still reading this the next item is:

Maybelline One By One Mascara
This mascara seems to be on everyone's favourite mascara list so I thought I would go to Wal-Mart today and check this out for myself.  I've only tried it once and I was not to impressed but we'll see if my opinion changes.  The problem with my lashes is that they are voluminous but SUPER short (if you have any amazing lengthening mascaras - leave me a comment below).


Lucky number 10?
Super boring Equate Nail Polish Remover
When it comes to nail polish remover I could care less!  I was running low on it and was already at Wal-Mart today so I thought - might as well pick one up while I'm here!  I have never tried this brand before but I don't expect anything grand from it.  Can someone please justify why I would need to spend $15 on a bottle on nail polish remover?


Numero 11...
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner - an Eclipse novella
I was itching to get my hands on this for awhile so while at Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania I saw one last copy and picked it up!  I have not started it yet but I can't wait to!  Eclipse by far was my favourite novel out of the series and now there's a novella (short book) to add on to that!  I love Twilight, enough said!


Sharpie Carribean Colors Limited Edition 24 Ultra Fine Markers
I know interesting! I have a fetish for Sharpies and this set was super cheap in PA!  The colours are gorgeous and I was left with the daunting task if choosing this one or the Sharpie 80s Pop Limited Edition 24 Fine Markers.  In the end the Ultra Fine won me over!


And lastly hopefully?  
Coach Wristlet
I needed a new wristlet so when I stepped into the Coach Outlet I made a beeline to them!  I love wristlets and totes so this was great for me.  This is a fairly large wristlet too.  I also got it for super cheap (don't worry it's authentic!).  The original price of it was US$98, at the outlet it was on sale for US$69 but then you get 30% off that and it ended up being US$51 with tax!

So, I think this is the end of my blog post! Congrats to you if you read it all.  If I missed something I will edit it if it is of significance (not if it's like the shoe boxes I bought today).  So I hoped you enjoyed and let me know if you like posts like this!  Look forward to my next post on spring nail polished for 2011!  I'll write that up when I have a chance to go to Sally's and get nail swatchers!

Thanks so much for reading!
