A Day In Toronto = I HAVE to spend money

I'm back from Holidays! My life has been non-stop for the past week and I haven't had a chance to get on the computer for some time now. As you may already know I was in Toronto Sunday for the Blink 182 concert w/ Weezer, Taking Back Sunday and Chester French. It was absolutely AMAZING! Here are a few pictures from the concert:

In Toronto I picked up a couple things at Sephora, even though I told myself I couldn't buy anything because I'm on a budget. Also, when I got home today I had a couple things in the mail as well. So here is my little mini haul!

The nice thing about Toronto is that they give out a lot of random samples on the street. So I got some shampoo, shine serums, gum...etc. On the right side of the pic are all my free samples I got from Sephora. I got Bad Gal Lash in "blue", Smashbox Light PhotoFinish Primer, Make Up For Ever HD #120, Make Up For Ever HD #125, Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet #40.

St. Moriz Instant Self-Tanning Mousse and Ben Nye Neutral Set Translucent Powder I got in the mail today. I've been wanting to try both for some time now so hopefully they live up to my expectations. I also picked up some Revlon lipgloss in "Life's a Peach" because I liked how it looked in one of Natty's FOTDs. :)

I just got two things at Sephora. Both of which I have been eyeing but decided to buy spur of the moment that day. First of which is Clinque's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I've heard good things about this and was running low on my moisturizer I've been using so I decided to pick up a bottle and see how I like it. Normally I'm not too picky when it comes to moisturizers because lots of cheap drugstore ones work for me, but I tend to have skin on the dry side so I figured this would be perfect. Second, I bought Tarte cheek stain in "Green Siren". I saw Kandee use this in one of her Megan fox tutorials and I'm OBSESSED with Megan's dewy skin and glowing cheeks so I had to buy this. My friend also picked this up because I've been talking about getting this for a while now. It is such a beautiful colour. I tried swatching it on my hand today but the photos I took weren't doing it justice. I'm planning on doing a Megan Fox inspired FOTD soon so I'll try and re-swatch it then.

I haven't tried any of these products yet, but I'll let you know how I like them in the near future. I'm sure I'll be using some for future FOTDs. I also placed an order on Cherry Culture for a bunch of NYX lipsticks, lipglosses, and lip pencils. I mainly was in need of some variety in lip pencils because I only have two MAC ones. However, the lipsticks were soooo cheap (only $1.75) and the glosses were $2.00 so I HAD to pick up a bunch. $40 later... haha So expect a haul for that soon :)


  1. I've never tried NYX but i've heard that they are cheap but good so i think ill be making a purchase soon too.. let me know how your samples turn out!! :)

  2. such a good haul! i wish they gave out samples where i lived!

  3. Blink 182 are touring again?? I didnt even realise they fully got back together. Bet that was awesome right? :)
