i love target! did some liberty haulin'...

I was soooo excited for the Liberty collections from Target that hit stores yesterday (March 14). I felt like a child on Christmas Eve (or, who am I kidding, ME!) the night before, itching with anticipation!

And I wasn't disappointed. I found a few really wonderful things. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the watering can I so desperately wanted to get for my mama, but I haven't given up on that just yet. ;)

Here are some pics of my haul and my makeup/outfit/nails of the day.

CLOTHES (ignore the tank + bra strap - oops!) :D

xhilaration dress:

liberty dress (cutest print ever!):

xhilaration romper:

I think I might return the romper. I thought it was super cute in the fitting room, but when I look at this pic, I think it looks sooo short!


I got several cans of Coconut Water... yummy! ;) The Green Ginger Tea is also super-delicious. Love! Also pictured: lip balms & a lip scrub, mini Liberty frame, Liberty storage boxes, the standard weekly gossip mag (usually I go trashier than People, but it was a double issue!), and a cereal weakness...

One of the new lines in the Beauty/Cosmetics section is For Kings and Queens. I got the Nefertiti Honey Body Butter (smells like raw honey -- amazing!) and Queen Elizabeth Sugar Shower Gel (fruity, floral, and equally gorgeous-smelling!). Also in this pic: Bella Vanilla Amber candle (lovely scent again..), Wet & Wild lipstick in 901B, Sally Hansen Shrimply Divine nail polish, Sonia Kashuk glitter eyeshadow quad, elf Blush/Bronzer duo, earrings, faux flowers (love!), and the same storage boxes that were in the pic above...

I love this bed-in-a-bag set sooo much, and so does Sparky! ;) It even goes with the striped pillowcases, sheets, ottoman, and beside table I already had. Yay!


Face: YSL Teint Resist Foundation (No.3 Opal), MAC Studio Finish Concealer (to cover pimples from the MAC foundation! :P), MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (Medium), MAC Shell Pearl Beauty Powder (as blush)
Eyes: MAC Bough Grey on lid and under eye, MAC Black Tied in crease & outer V, Smashbox Heartbreaker Liner on lid, MUFE Aqua Eyes 18L under eyes, Sephora shimmery pink pencil (forgot the name) in inner corners to highlight, Lancome Hypnose Drama + Givenchy Phenom'eneyes mascara
Lips: MAC Viva Glam Gaga (my current fave!)


Tee: Fifi Lapin by Alloy
Skirt: Gap
Belt: Dorothy Perkins
Brogues: Steve Madden
Bag: Topshop
Necklace: Vintage (mom's)
Earrings: white thumbtack studs (not shown) from H&M


OPI Jade is the New Black + OPI Mad As A Hatter on ring finger (please excuse the sloppy job I did! Yikes!)

That's all for now, but I'll be back soon for sure. I had to run to the mall today to pick up my bridesmaid shoes for my cousin Amy's wedding and stopped at Lush while I was there... and the Easter stuff was in! I also want to post about some MAC Give Me Liberty and some other makeup stuffs I've gotten in the past month or so.

Love you all & see you soon!


  1. Love, love, love the dresses; the rompers, not so much. Do you have false eyelashes on? If not, fab eye shadow and mascara! Love the goodies pix, and Sparky looks adorable on the new quilt!

  2. Thanks, mama! Yeah, I'm planning on returning the romper. Not a good look! I'm not wearing falsies -- I just wing my eyeliner (pretty much always..), and I was wearing the Lancome mascara Dad got you for Christmas!

  3. O.O I want that For Kings and Queens stuff. Sounds so lovely!

  4. It's a great range - the Sugar and Honey are my favorites. :)
