Dallas/Fort Worth Haul


Me and my husband occasionally go to the Dallas/Fort Worth area to shop, splurge and spoil ourselves a wee bit. I won't bore y'all with details on where we went, what/where we ate, where we shopped and all that. I'll share photos of the goodies that I bought tho - because it's always fun to "exchange notes/tips/favorites" with my lovely readers via blog posts. However, my DSLR ran outta juice somewhere in between snapshots - so you have to excuse the quality of some of the photos that I took. I had to resort to using my backup camera, 'coz I wanted to finish this entry before I completely forget about posting it - lol!

I am almost out of my favorite contouring palette - NARS Orgasm Laguna Bronzer and Blush Duo...so I got another one.

We don't have a local MAC store in my area...so every time we go to the Dallas/Fort Worth Area, I always stock up on stuff that I'm running low on (and then some).
Photobucket
I got another bottle of Fix Plus and Studio Fix Fluid Foundation.
Photobucket
I also got three shades of lipstick - Viva Glam III, Velvet Teddy (my FAVE shade) and Ruby Woo (I am all out of this color so I had to get a new tube). I'm still well stocked on my other makeup staples - so that was it for me, as far as MAC products go.

Our next stop was at LUSH. Thank goodness I was blessed with a patient and wonderful husband because my "baby, I just need ten minutes 'coz I know what I'm getting" turns to forever when I'm at this store. I love my bath stuff - that's my only excuse. *silly grin*

These are the stuff that I ended up purchasing from Lush - my bath and skin care staples.
Photobucket
I got two more bath bombs to add to my stash - Big Blue and The Enchanter

I also got more "Fresh Farmacy" - it works great on my face specially during Winter Season.

My favorite - The Godmother

Freebie Soap - Rock Star. I love most of Lush's products but I don't know how I feel about the scent of this soap. It smells too much like Play Doh (uuuh...or a rubber eraser?!)  to me. It's a freebie tho...so no hard feelings!

Photobucket
Lastly, I got more "Buffy" (I got my husband hooked on this too) - an exfoliant and body butter that you can use while you're in the shower. It's specially great during the winter season because our skin tends to be VERY dry during the colder months.
Photobucket
I also bought more shower/smell good stuff and hand soaps from Bath and Body Works and Victoria's Secret.
Photobucket
I'm a "smell good fiend" and I stock up on hand soaps from BBW when I have good coupons and when they have crazy sales going on.
Photobucket
Me and my hubby also went to Trader Joe's to get some of his favorite healthy snacks and a few of my favorite low carb treats.
Photobucket
My favorite treats from Trader Joe's: low carb chocies and "no carb" irish cheese
Photobucket
I couldn't resist getting this owl organizer from Barnes and Noble.  I love OWLS and  I can never live without an organizer. I know I have my iPad, laptop and there's all the technology that I can/should take advantage of - but I'm old school and I can't seem to remember things unless I jot them down!
Photobucket
It's a treat for the li'l kid in me...lol!

Thanks for droppin' by and I hope y'all enjoyed this post!
