Bath and Body Works Fall Haul


Summer may be my favorite season but I love the fall candles at Bath and Body Works. Okay to be honest I love the candles at Bath and Body Works every season. But anyway the fall scents are out and ready to be snatched up.  I picked up two mini Sweater Weather candles.  I love the scent of these of course but I really love the color.  They are so pretty.  I also got a mini version of my favorite candle, Cinnamon Sugared Donut . I am obsessed with this candle.  Like seriously obsessed.  I couldn't resist this cute mini Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow candle.  The lid is just too adorable. As I was waiting in line to check out two travel sized Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte body creams just jumped right into my hands and said "BUY ME!!!" What are your favorite fall candles.  Leave a comment down below and don't forget to subscribe.

Ulta Birthday Haul


In honor of my birthday my mom took me on a little shopping spree at Ulta.  Oh sweet heaven was I excited.  I thought i'd share with ya'll what I picked up.  

I knew I definitely wanted two specific things. The first was the Carli Bybel 14 Color Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette from BH Cosmetics.  What a beautiful palette; the packaging is so pretty.  I love all of the warm tones and can't wait to try out some new eye looks. I can't decide which one is my favorite.
 I'm new to highlighter and will soon be experimenting with these beautiful shades.  I'm in love with pink highlighter on the left.  All of these colors are going to look amazing this fall.

The second item on my list to pick up was the Miss Fabulous Eye Shadow Palette from Ulta Cosmetics. I'm a big fan of Jenn Fabulous aka Jenny Claire Fox.  Her nail tutorials on YouTube are incredible.  I only wish I could do nail art as well as she does.  Now Jenn has branched out into makeup with a great set of eye shadows.  One of the colors (top left) is called Virgo so being a Virgo I was all about that. Mitten (top second from right) is a very pretty color as well.




Of course I had to pick up my birthday gift from Ulta; a gorgeous eye shadow from Urban Decay called Midnight Cowboy .  It's described as a pink champagne shimmer with silver glitter. 


I also picked up a beautiful makeup bag by Tarten + Twine off the clearance shelf.  I think it was like $9.  It's huge and very soft.  I love that it has a liner in the middle to help keep things organized. Some other goodies I picked up were the Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Plumping Gloss in Nudestar by Soap & Glory, the Ulta brand eye shadow in Organza and eye liner in Black Plum, a sample of the Fig & Honey lotion by Ulta, the ELF Cosmetics HD Undereye Setting PowderGreat Lash Waterproof Mascara by Maybelline, Neutrogena's Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser, a travel size Hand Food in the scent sugar crush, a pack of Venus Embrace Disposable razorsOGX Biotin & Collagen Conditioner and a gift with purchase of Ulta cosmetics of a cute purple makeup bag, a couple of makeup brushes, a eye shadow palette, pencil sharpener, eye brow gelplush drama mascara in black a double ended eyeliner, a double ended lip liner, mineral setting powder, a  matte lipstick in Mulberry, a lip gloss in sheer opal and a nail polish in Aubergine Queen .

Stacking the Shelves



I love Tynga's Reviews Stacking the Shelves  so I borrowed it for my blog.  I hit up my favorite used bookstores recently and hit the jackpot.  I was able to get four books from my wishlist.  First I picked up Chocolate-Covered-Murder by Leslie Meier.  I love this mystery series and have been reading it for awhile.  I really need to catch up.  I also was able to get Fallen-Masters by John Edward.  Yes that John Edward the TV psychic.  I usually don't read much science fiction but this intrigued me.  Next I picked up Waltz-Time by Eugenia Riley and If-Only-Dreams by Wendy Markham aka Wendy Corsi Staub.  These two are both time travel romances which are a favorite genre of mine.  I'll let you know how they are.  

Product Spotlight: Beyonce Heat Perfume


I bought Beyonce Heat Perfume for 50% off the day after Christmas.  I hadn't smelled it before I bought it but for $2,50 I could take a chance on it.  I loved it.  It is not too strong and the vanilla really comes through.  It is a really good choice to wear to work since it is not too overpowering.  This is a small bottle but even the bigger bottles are really affordable.  Let me know what you think of this scent and any others you love.  I provided the link to purchase above and again below.

What's new

It's been busy lately with school and everything. I did manage to do a little shopping and will share with you what I got very soon.  I have been reading a lot lately as well. Right now i'm reading Nick Carter's autobiography, 11/22/63  by Stephen King and The end of your life book club.  I am really enjoying all three of them.  I am so glad that the new TV season has started but I am already behind.. The DVR is full lol. I am in love with the new show Reign as well as my old favorites 2 broke girls, Law and Order SVU, criminal minds and about a million others.  What are some of your favorites? There are a lot of new movies out in theaters right now.  I might go see Gravity in 3D.  I heard it was great.  I also am so excited about catching fire.  I already bought my tickets.  I have really gotten back into twitter (@cindymadrid08) and instagram (cindymadrid08) again.  I can't get enough.  What can't you get enough of lately?

Bath & Body Works Haul


Hi dolls!!! I hit up Bath and Body Works the other day for some essentials.  I stocked up on some foaming hand soap and got some new scents such as bella flora and tangerine along with some old faves like warm vanilla sugar, white citrus and cucumber melon.  I wasn't that impressed with the Bella Flora scent when I opened it.  


Also picked up white citrus shower gel and hand cream, pink chiffon hand cream and a whole bunch of hand sanitizer. (l to r pink frosting, pink lemonade, pink champagne, flip flopped fruit and pink diamond)

Purse Haul

I was so excited when I got this beautiful tan Guess bag as a gift from my mom.  I had been wanting it forever.  It is huge and holds everything I need and everything I don't need.  One of my favorite features is the braided handle.  
I don't know why this looks pink in this picture but it is really grey.  I purchased this from Just Fab and it is faux ostrich.  This bag is huge.  Definitely not a bag you would use everyday but it will work great for a work bag or for an overnight trip.  It's like a mini suitcase.  Love it


This beautiful bag is by Elle and is available from Kohls.  The leather is like butter, so soft.  It has three big sections inside and slots for your phone and a few other things.  I also love the outside zippered section that is perfect for your keys.  As a bonus it comes with a cute white leather bow key-chain. This bag is large enough for me since I live big purses.  It also fits over my shoulder really well.

Bath and Body Works Haul


Hi dolls! I know it's been awhile but I promise to make it up to you.  Ok I had to go over to Bath & Body Works since it's bee forever since I have been there   I was in desperate need of some soap and hand sanitizer.  They were having a 5 for $15 sale on the hand soap and a 5 for $5 sale on the sanitizer.  I tried out some new scents too.  I got fresh picked peach and bella flora hand soaps.  I also got some favorites with warm vanilla sugar, white citrus and cucumber melon hand soap.  I love this scent so I had to get some white citrus shower gel and hand cream.  How cute is my pink chiffon hand cream? last but not least I got flip flopped fruit, pink champagne, pink lemonade, pink diamonds and pink frosting hand sanitizers.  TTFN

Target Haul


I love target and their clearance shelves.  I found Say yes to cucumbers face wipes and neutrogena makeup remover wipes for half price.  Score!!! I also picked up some JR Watkins grapefruit scented hand soap.  I love the vintage label. Of course what would be a trip to target without some new lip balm.  They had a cute hello kitty strawberry lip balm in the dollar area and I also picked up the raspberry lemonade blistex.  It was a small trip but a good one.  What is your favorite thing to shop for at target?

Walmart Haul

OK did a little shopping at Walmart and I thought i'd show you the cool stuff I got. First Is this cute owl mug that I just had to have. It comes with conversation hearts inside.
I bought Suave's everlasting sunshine lotion to go in my bathroom. I love the scent it has and it lasts for a long time. I also love that it's thin but not too thin and also not too thick. Next is the Nivea smooth sensation lotion. Nivea makes the best lotions and cremes ever. They have a wonderful scent to them. I wish they would make a perfume. Next is the Neutrogena naturals fresh cleansing and makeup remover. This line of products just came out and I was dying to give it a try after receiving samples of it at a hotel recently. I'll let you know how it works. Of course you must always have a billion blistex and chapsticks around. This is the blistex medicated lip-balm with SPF 15.I love vampires, so of course I had to have the vampire perfume from body fantasies. It kind of smells like cotton candy. Also it came with a purse spray which is awesome. I also have been meaning to try the strawberry fields tic tacs and I wasn't disappointed. They're pink and raise money for breast cancer research how could you not love them. Next is Cover Girls contouring blush in refined rose, eye-shadow singles in mink and bedazzled biscotti. These are some very neutral colors and staples in my makeup bag. I love that the bedazzled biscotti has some sparkle to it.
I have heard some amazing reviews about the author John Green and this book in particular, the fault in our stars. Can't wait to read it. Let me know if you have read it and what you think.
