Haul (I guess)

I don't know how I feel about these Hauls. I want to share what I got but I don't want to seem as if I'm bragging or showing off...Because that is not my be honest I am bored at home and when I am done with all my home duties I need something to do, and this is my yeah no bragging intended. And plus only 2 people read this blog, so

I went to Ulta the other day, well my intention wasn't to go there, I really needed to go get some thing photo copied and notarized, and ulta is RIGHT next to the UPS weird I know . So I kinda couldn't help myself. When I went in I realized that I needed and wanted some new eyeshadow brushes because I was tired of my old brush (singular) and because I am now into eye makeup I thought it'll be a great little splurge.

I decided to get eco tools 6 piece eye brush set, and I also wanted an angle brush so I get one in the eco tools brand also. I am a little bit sad because when I came home I looked at my receipt and realized that I was undercharged. The girl didn't ring up the 6 piece brush set, and charged me 2X for the angle a nut shell, I owe ULTA about $5.50. I haven't gone back yet because it's so out of my way..and I don't have access to the car on a regular I am kinda stuck. INsha'allah when I go back hopefully next week to do some more notarization ( I am in the process of removing the "conditions" on my permanent residence status) so I'll go back and get that taken care of.

I also got a few NYX stuff. I've always wanted a jumbo eye pencil, so I got one in "French Fries". I love it so much. My intention was to use it as a base for my eye shadow, but I use it as an eyeshadow because it's so pretty.. It's my everyday shadow..but it creases which I don't like so much but I'm not going anywhere so I don't really care. I love it none the less.

I also got an eyeshadow in "Daisy" it's a gold colour. Lastly a liquid liner, I will not get stared on my love for liquid liners. I think I am obsessed. I love them so much. This one is "Felt Tip liner" I don't find it works as well as it should. But it gets the overall job done I guess.

French Fries and Daisy

2nd Haul. Hijabs. I was picking my sister in law up from school (it's finally winter break) anyways so we kinda like to stop by this store Melrose only because their stuff is cheap and some items are I went in and saw these scarfs

They came in a variety of colours..and they reminded me so much of Pearl Daisy "Fairy Lights" scarfs. so I was like yeah I'll get 2.. 5 bucks each why not eh.

This is a new hijab style I decided to try out. I have been becoming really tired of my regular wrap around look, so I thought I'd spice things up a bit. I got the hijab tutorial from a YouTube user named Yazthespaz89, I love her I don't know how comfortable I am with my neck showing but I do really enjoy this look and it's super easy...I kinda tweaked it a little only so my neck doesn't show as much but overall it's the same thing.

Update: I went back to Ulta to do what is right. I had called a day before to tell them I was coming. All in all I got a coupon for $3.50 and I only had to pay a difference of 2 something. SEE it pays to be honest and truthful. The line was so long though..You shouldn't really do price adjustments in the holiday seasons. My 2 year old son was whining the whole time "Mommy LETS GOOOO!" ..."Come on LETS GOOO" I swear; sometimes I think he's 12.

I was a tad bit bored, and when I get bored I play around with eye is the result...Grr I hate labeling all my photos it's so time consuming..I wish there was a stamp where you could just stamp all photos automatically.. unless there is and I just don't know about it... :S

In my down time

I love reading...but more so than that; I love giving people presents. Seriously. It's my excuse to wrap things up all nice and pretty. I have a slight obsession with Wrapping paper, Bags, Ribbon, Tissue...everything and anything that has to do with gifts, I LOVE. Here is the most recent gift I did..

My husband's cousin's wife is about to give birth to her first child. Actually her due date is Today, or tomorrow it all depends one when I publish this and who reads it from where..but Dec 2nd is the due date.

I made the bows myself..see crafty ;). I love doing this kind of stuff. I've always been a crafty person, but to be honest gift wrapping is probably my favorite craft project.

You have a gift I'll wrap it for ya!!! no charge. I get paid in happiness and the satisfaction of people liking what they see.
