Haul: June 24, 2011 - Abercrombie & Fitch, Forever 21 and Nail Polish

tHey girls,

So.... I went shopping.... again.  I think I have a problem, I swear my mom has been so thoughtful going to Abercrombie a lot recently to buy me clothes.  She just buys them for me out of the kindness of her heart.

A little tip with A&F, shop at the kids' section for as long as you can!  They have the same clothes for much cheaper without compromising the quality.

The "Belle" top is the first thing my mom got me and it is super cute!  It has the nautical look because of the stripes but there are flowers at the top to add something special!  This would look so cute under jean shorts and it was only $11!

The next item is known as the "Amy", I have been obsessed with the colour yellow lately for some odd reason.  It still isn't my favourite colour but I love it more now then ever!  Once again the flowers of different shapes and textures dress this tank up.

These are the "Harley" shorts.  I love A&F's short shorts to just lounge around in and under the right top you can wear them out!  They are so comfy and don't look trashy.  I got these for $8.

The next shorts are the "Tristen" shorts.  They are of longer length and mine are in grey not navy but this is all the website had.  Again, these shorts are amazing to just chill in around the house.  They were $8 too.

This shirt is super pretty but I couldn't find it on the A&F website.  It is navy blue and unfortunately you can't see all the stunning detail.  Each ruffle is a different lace material and print!  It gives you so much pattern and texture but the neutral colour balances it all out.

Once again I couldn't find this shirt on the website.  There was similar ones but they weren't the same.  This is a sheer floral blouse which is kind of different in a good way for A&F.  It looks so cute with denim shorts since it is synched at the bottom.

Yea, I got another one.... in a really pretty light blue with pastel pink flowers.  You can see the detailing way better on it.  It has ruffles going down the centre and it has synced sleeves as well.  It just screams summer for the price of $12.

At Forever 21, I bought this bag for those days where I want to carry minimal things.  It is very Chanel-esque which is what I was going for.  It is grey and quilted.  The strap is long and has fabric and chains.  It is perfect for a night out.  It surprisingly fits a lot for its tiny figure.  It is called the "Small Matelassé Hangbag" and was on the more expensive side for Forever 21.

I got a swim suit at Forever 21 too.  The top is just a plain string bikini in a pinky-corally colour which would look gorgeous with my naturally tanned skin for $5.

The bottom is very plain and simple as well but it would be great to mix and match with other swim suits and the bold colour makes it looks 10 times better.

NOW ON TO THE NAIL POLISH! WHOOO! Okay so, I went a bit over board with the nail polish.  It is my first time purchasing Wet n Wild nail colours and I know they are cheap but they are all gorgeous colours for the summer.

The first thing has been receiving lots of hype lately for the easy to use application and cool effects.  I bought the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in the design "Laced Up".  I heard you have to use them right away so I will be using them tonight and I might do a product review.  I always loved lace nails but I could never get them right so hopefully they look good on.

I got this Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Colour in "Whirlwind White" because the white I have (Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Colour in "White On") looks like white-out on my nails.  In fact, people actually told me that so I decided to pick up a better quality one that wasn't OPI or China Glaze.

I kind of don't like this certain line from Sally Hansen but the colour was too pretty to pass up!  The picture does not at all do it justice!  It resembles Sephora By OPI's "Mermaid to Order" but this was only $3.  The colour is "Marine Scene" and as predicted it is sheer but easy to build up to a blue with green duo chrome!

It is my first time buying Wet N Wild nail polish or anything!  I did go a bit crazy when I saw the price... anyway this gorgeous colour is called "Caribbean Frost" it might look like "Marine Scene" but it looks more like Essie's "Trophy Wife".  The main difference between this one and "Marine Scene" is that this one is more green.

This colour is more hot pink in person but this was the best picture I could find.  It's called "Dreamy Poppy" and it's practically neon pink.  Where I live, China Glaze is really hard to find so I can't really get one of their neon pinks for now.  I'll just settle for this until I find one.

I am in love with this colour!   It is called "Blazed" and it is pretty much a hot pink coral.... if that even makes sense!  I swatched it on a colour wheel and it is a bit sheer but the colour itself is amazing and I will look great on!  Imagine that F21 bathing suit as a nail polish and you would get this!

I got 2 packs of Marcelle Face Cleansing Cloths for the price of one (BOGO).  I was running low on my make-up wipes and have been trying out alternatives to my beloved and expensive MAC wipes.  It comes in a pack of 25, and I know "TAY THIS IS BORING MOVE ON!"

So that is ALL I bought!  As for my 50 follower giveaway, I don't know when I can ship it, it is still open, but the postal service in Canada is on strike so I will try to ship it ASAP once the giveaway is over.  I just thought I should let you know.  DON'T FORGET TO ENTER!  Leave me comments on any future blog posts you would like to see from me!

Taylor, xoxo. <3
