Hey diamonds!(I think I’ve decided…y’all are diamonds now! Is that good?)
Anyway, I’ve been shopping some more. And I really enjoyed making my last post like this. So I have another one…
I hesitated to do this post so soon, since I did just do one in June. But, one of my other posts for the month fell through. Plus, I saw Miriam and Meg’s Pura Vida haul and that got me in the mood to do a haul. In this post, I will be sharing my haul from a couple stores, as well as a few recent favorites. I’ll try to link to what I can.
First up, I made an order from Shein. I’d heard of this website before, but never bought anything. With the cheap prices, I was a little bit nervous about buying. But, I figured with free returns, it was worth a shot.
The first thing I want to talk about is the shipping. Since this came from China(I believe), I knew it would take a while. Amazon Prime sure has me spoiled…
Anyway, I ordered just above the free shipping threshold. I do that a lot, because I hate feeling like I’m wasting money on shipping. I ordered this on a Saturday, and it arrived the next Monday. (to be clear, it was the next weekend. It was about 10 days.) Everything I ordered arrived, so that is honestly better than it could have been.
I ordered 3 pairs of pants, a pair of shoes, some makeup brushes, and a bit of jewelry. So I got varied categories to try.
Let’s start with these shoes! These were what initially tempted me to make this order. I love this color, and I’ve been looking for shoes like this for a couple years. And here’s the exact type of shoe I wanted! For $18!
The only problem…shoes are hard to get in the right size. Especially when you order them from online and sizes are listed in the size of another country.
I love the way these shoes look! And upon trying them on, I discovered that they actually do fit me! I’m very excited about that because I love these shoes. They’re very comfortable for heels. I’m very happy to have these.
Next, I checked out these mint green yoga pants. I again was kind of nervous about the pants, because again, sizes.
These ones however were a tiny bit small, but they still fit me. Besides, they’ll probably stretch out a bit. That tends to be what happens with yoga pants. Anyway, for $11, there a pretty average pair of yoga pants.
I was really excited about these pants because look at this color! I told you how I love this color a lot. But, despite all the yoga pants I ordered being the same size, these ones were way too small. So I will be returning these. 😦
I was a little nervous after the last pants being too small. But, I tried again. I absoulutely love the fabric these are made of! These fit much better than the other two, and this is definitely my favorite pair out of the bunch.
Next, I got these necklaces for $2. I think they’re meant to be like a friendship necklace thing, but I don’t know who I’d give the other one to. This is pretty much what I was expecting.
Here, I got 9 rings for $1! Not $1 each, just $1 for all nine!
I think these ones here are my favorites. I like the heart one a lot, along with the ones with jewels. They definitely don’t look like $100 rings, but they look like they’re worth more than 10 cents a piece.
I’ve been needing some new makeup brushes, and I set my sights on these $3 ones. I haven’t used them yet, so I can’t speak to their quality. I will say that they were each indivually wrapped in plastic which kind of felt like a waste.
Anyway, overall I would say I’m pretty happy with these products from Shein. I will be returning the red pants, but oh well. (I may or may not be planning another order from Shein in the near future! Stay tuned!)
Next up, I have a jewelry haul! The reason I have so much jewelry is because I found a $1 jewelry store while at my grandma’s house. (recap coming soon)
So, I let myself buy as much jewelry as I wanted. I still spent less than $20, including some gifts that will not be shown.
I might’ve mentioned before, I don’t have pierced ears. It’s hard to find good clip on earrings, but there were some at this store! I got a pair of blue ones, a dangly pair of pearls, butterflies, and some pink ones.
Then, I got this little turquoise ring. It matches one of the necklaces I’m about to show you.
Ahhh, both of these necklaces are very special to me. When I was young, I had an owl necklace that I wore all the time. It eventually rusted, and while I still have it, I don’t wear it anymore. So even though this one is a bit different, it reminds me of that one.
And the turquiose bear…well, I do have a blog about bears so, that’s pretty obvious.
The last thing I got at the jewelry store was this layered gold necklace. I like the look of layered necklaces a lot.
Okay, so there are the hauls. Finally, I’m going to share some of the things I’ve purchased lately that I have just been loving!
Blue light glasses! We talked about these already here, so I won’t go into detail. But I do really feel like these make a difference.
I’ve been changing foundations lately, and I think I’ve settled on this one. It’s not exactly a foundation, but a tinted hydrator. It gives light coverage, and it’s pretty easy to get the right shade. Plus, it’s $5. I like that part a lot.
Another thing I realized I should be doing is cleaning my face. I wear makeup nearly every day, and I don’t normally wash my face at night. *hides*
Miraculously, my skin wasn’t too bad. I just had some clogged pores(or something) in areas around my nose.
Anyway, since I’ve never been one to really have acne, I want to take care of my skin. My friend Miriam recommended this cleanser, so I decided to try it. It was a little outside my price range, so I may try the generic version next time. But anyway, this has helped to clear up areas on my skin, and I feel like a more hygenic person when I use it.
Okay, so I was looking for some cream blush in Ulta one day. Then I found this. The e.l.f. multistick is 3-in-1, which means you can put it on your eyes, lips, and cheeks. However, I saw that it was $8, and I didn’t want it as much anymore.
Then I went into Target and it was $4! I got Sparkling Rose. I tried it out and I loved it! So I went back and bought another shade – Glistening Peach.
I really like these. My one complaint is that it’s not the best eye shadow though. If you put eye liner on over it, it tends to get muddy. But otherwise, I love this.
I saw this shirt at Target, and I kept eyeing it. But, I have a lot of T-shirts already and I didn’t want to pay $15 for one. Then it went on sale! So I bought it, and now I have two baby Yoda T-shirts.
Remember how I showed you some oversized T-shirts I got at Old Navy last time? I may have gotten more…
Only because they were on sale.
I’ve only bought two books in the past couple months. (YES! MY WALLET IS GLAD)
Wildcard is one of them. I read Warcross a couple months ago and I was obssessed with it. I’m really glad I got this one. I now know how the story ends, and it was very satisfactory to me.
I went to a Disney outlet! I love Disney outlets so much. I got a Three Caballeros shirt, along with this gray one with the castle.
It may be a Disneyland shirt. And I haven’t been to Disneyland. (yet) But we can pretend,
Also at the Disney outlet, I got these Pixar pants! I wanted these when they first came out, but $40 for a pair of pants? Um, no thank you. But $10 is much better.
That’s my haul/recent purchases post! I think this will become a series because I really like doing them.
What did you think? What was your favorite thing from this haul? How often should I do these? What’s your favorite beauty product?
