A Small Shopping Haul

 My uncle and his kids were visiting from Qatar this week, so we took the girls shopping! :) My uncle is my dad's best friend and he was also the witness at my parents' wedding. Whenever he gets together with my dad, it's like they revert back to being teenagers! It's so sweet (and a little funny) to see!

Ok, on to the shopping :)


  Bath and Body Works Cherry Blossom Shower Gel and Hawaii Coconut Body Lotion

Bath Sponge

Bath and Body Works were having a sale, so I took the opportunity to stock up on my favorite shower gel. Cherry Blossom is my favorite B&BW scent. I also got the Hawaii Coconut body lotion from their summer collection. It smells like a bottle of summer! hehe

I've never seen bath sponges like this one! But I got it because it was on sale and I thought I'd try it out :)

 
 Long necklace and angel wing earrings

 The pendant from the necklace

I just loved this necklace. It is pretty long, so it'll be great to layer with other stuff. I just loved the (plastic) stone haha. It's one of those ones that turns color, it goes from a milky white to almost purple. I have a really bad nickel allergy, and most necklaces from F21 tend to give me a giant rash, but this one felt like it was coated, so I'm gonna try it out and see (fingers crossed!)

The earrings are ones that I wouldn't normally go for, but my cousin insisted that they were cute and I bowed to peer pressure! Hahah I might actually wear them during the fall.
 
 Guerlain Terracotta Lipgloss 04 Ambre, Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water

Swatch of the gloss

I treated myself to a new lipgloss. I saw it in the store and I do love a nude(ish) gloss so I bought it. I'm actually wearing it in my smokey look here. I'm glad it works because I didn't wanna use the tester in the store so I didn't get to try it before I bought it!
I saw the Sephora cleansing waters by the cash register and I bought a little travel sized one. I'm currently going through a 'cleansing water' phase, so I was really excited to try it out! It actually seems to work really well, but you'll get a proper review in a little bit when I've had a chance to use it for a while.

Did you guys buy anything this week? :)
