Outfit of the Day?

I've been following a website called Chictopia for a while now. It's basically a website where people post pictures of their outfits. If you're interested in fashion I'd definitely check it out. It's really fun seeing what other people put together. I decided to make my own account. Maybe I'll start posting when I can take better pictures, haha.

Here's my outfit today though. Until now, the weather's been pretty warm staying in the 70's. Today was the first day of the season that the temperature was in the low 50's.

- white sweater (forever 21)
- green plaid jacket (forever 21)
- denim jeans (forever 21)
- white scarf (forever 21)
- black boots (union bay)

I guess it's obvious I love shopping at Forever 21 ><

99 Cents L'Oreal HIP

Once in a while, I find something good from the 99 cent only store that's usually sold at drugstores. I wasn't expecting to see anything interesting today since I haven't in a while... but there were a couple of L'Oreal HIP items! 7 items for $7.

Hard Candy, Sallys Update

You might have heard that Hard Candy has been revamped and is now being sold for drugstore prices at Walmart. I was excited to see the beautiful new display!

Blush Crush Baked Blush in HONEYMOON: This looks gorgeous in the pan. A soft light pink with some tiny purple veining. I was expecting this to be similar to MAC's mineralize blushes, but this is much more similar to the mineralize skin finishes. There isn't much color payoff, but it gives a beautiful shimmer that's great for highlighting.

Kal-eye-descope Baked Eyeshadow Duo in ROCK N ROLL: Another gorgeous looking product. Very smooth and shimmery.

Balm Girls Moisturizing Lip Balm in JULIE: I'm not too sure if I like this one. With the word "tinted" I thought it would add some color to my lips, but it's extremely sheer. It almost looks like clear lipgloss on my lips. It also has that weird plastic/play-dough/crayon type smell. On the plus side, it's really moisturizing and glossy with a unique packaging.

Curl Up & Dye lash curling mascara in INK: I'm really disappointed in this one. I got sucked into buying it because of its promise to curl. I have stick straight lashes and I need a mascara that can hold a curl. This did the opposite. After using my lash curler and applying this, my lashes drooped down. The mascara felt very heavy and wet.

Overall, it seems like a nice brand. I'll probably be avoiding their mascaras, but I'm willing to try more Hard Candy products.


On my previous post, I talked about my bad experience at Sallys. I wrote an email to their customer service explaining the incident. The company called me, but I wasn't able to answer because I was in school. They left a voicemail, apologizing for my experience. They also said that they would forward the incident to the district manager here and investigate the store or something.

RANT: Horrible Experience at Sallys

Something happened today that made me really angry.

My boyfriend and I were going to Target, and I saw a Sally Beauty Supply that I had never been to before. I usually go to a different Sallys. I told him that I wanted to go in and look around, so we did. I'm the kind of person who can probably walk around a beauty store like Sallys or Sephora for hours. I never get tired of checking out the products. I'm also a very indecisive person, so I spend a lot of time thinking about whether I should buy things or not.

The woman working there asked me three times if I needed any help. Each time I said to her, "No thank you, I'm not looking for anything in particular. Just browsing." We were in the store for around 10-15 minutes when she comes up to me and says, "Look, if you don't need my help with anything I'm gonna have to ask you to leave. You've been walking around the store for a while, and it's suspicious of burglary."

At first I thought she was joking, but she wasn't. I couldn't believe that she was accusing my boyfriend and I of looking like thieves. I didn't do anything wrong or weird while walking around. I was just looking at the products like I usually do in any other store. Just because I wasn't in and out of the store in a minute makes me look like a thief? Not needing her assistance means I have intentions of stealing? I was SO angry. I put the product I was holding back on the shelf and told my boyfriend that we were leaving. I was planning on buying something, but I definitely changed my mind. I wasn't about the give that store my money.

Now that I think about it, I should have said something to her. I should have told her how rude she was. That it was wrong for her to accuse us of looking like thieves when we didn't do anything wrong. But at the time, I was so angry and shocked that all I wanted to do was leave and not deal with her. I have NEVER been accused of looking suspicious. I was so upset that I started crying afterwards in the car.

This happened at the Sally Beauty Supply on Maryland Parkway in Las Vegas. I definitely won't be going back there and I wouldn't recommend anyone else go either :(
