Hanging with My Sister Haul

Its not very often that I get to go out shopping with my sister but when it does happen we always have so much fun.  Thankfully when she called me to see if I wanted to meet up and do some Christmas shopping it worked out. Although I have to admit that I am pretty much done mine.

We decided to meet at the mall just before opening to avoid the rush and the crowds. Parking can always be crazy at the mall this time of year and its always packed.

The first place we went to was Bath & Body Works. Our favorite.

I decided to pick up some winter/holiday soaps. The scents I got were: Snow Frosted Apple, Iced Gingerbread, Candy Cane Bliss, Fresh Sparkling Snow and Winter Spice and Vanilla. I just have to say that B&BW has the best scented soaps.
One of the reasons we wanted to go to B&BW was because they had the 4oz candles on sale buy one get one free and I also had a coupon that if you spent $10 you got a free 4oz candle so I picked up the following candles: Merry Cookie, Frosted Gingerbread, Peppermint Mocha, Winter Candy Apple and Twisted Peppermint. They all smell so delicious that I can ‘t wait to burn these.
I was also on the hunt for a nice Christmas shirt for Michael to wear on Christmas day and I found this one at Sears and I really like and I think it will look good on Christmas day.
After Sears we decide to go in and look around Forever 21. They day we were there, there was a sale and I spotted some things I just couldn’t pass up on.
The first thing that caught my eye was those cute owl pjs. Love them. It came with a tshirt and short. In that same section I spotted these owl pj pants. They are sort of a flannel. Then as we are getting ready to pay we spotted some really nice scarves and I am a sucker for a pretty scarf so I picked up a champagne colored one and this Tiffany blue one (sadly the picture makes them look another color). They are both sparkly and very long. I can’t wait to add them to my wardrobe.
I was looking at these items by the cash and I needed some stuff to put in a stocking stuffer so I grabbed them.
Not sure what shade these eye shadows are but they are really nice and I am really impressed with the pigmentation on them.
I have a weakness for Strawberry flavored Gloss.

One of my pet peeves is when items are marked with a shade so I have no idea what the following shades are but its in the Light Pink/Multi Color Collection

Turquoise Glitter, Purple Glitter and Rose Glitter
Pale Pink Glitter, Gold Glitter, Silver Glitter and Multi Color Glitter
After that we went into H&M and I can honestly say I have only been in a few times and nothing has ever caught up eye until today.
I thought this white top would be nice and it goes so well with the scarf I bought at Forever 21. It was quite sheer as you can see
So I picked up this tank top to do under it. I have worn it a few times and I really like.

Then the last place we went into was Sephora. I wanted to pick up my birthday gift from them. If you are a Beauty Insider you always get a birthday gift in your birth month.

So while I was in line I picked up two things. One was this foundation brush. I have a really good one that I use all the time but when I wash it I wanted a second one to have as a back up and that one was really cheap and junkie so I ditched it and figured I would pick this one up to try. The brush seems really nice. The other item I grabbed was the Jose Maran Bearnaked nail wipes. I thought this would be perfect to toss in my make up bag when I travel.
I was super excited for the Birthday gift because its something I have been wanting to try for the longest time but just couldn’t commit to the price tag.  Its from a company called Fresh and its Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Duo. Mini Sugar Rose its a tinted lip treatment and the other is a lip treatment and its nice that both are SPF 15.
I think that its really nice that Sephora does that for its clients and that they change it every year.
 Then just before we called it a day, I was surprised with these wonderful goodies as a early bday present.
The first two essie’s were packaged together and they are in the shades A Cut Above & Eternal Optimist and the other essie is nothing else metals.
It was funny because these are words she is always telling me.
I have been raving about these color burst lipsticks by Revlon to her and this just happens to be one of her favorite shades so she thought I should try it to .
Its in shade Pink Truffle #001

Thanks hun I love the little goodies and spending the morning shopping and hanging with you. We will have to try to do it a little more often,
