tuesday's face/outfit/nails & books!

Yesterday was an all-caps WEIRD day. I didn't get to sleep until 6 AM the night (morning?) before -- I just couldn't get to sleep! Then the GE repairman came a few hours later to fix the washing machine in my apartment. So basically I got maybe 4-5 hours of sleep.  I got ready, went out to run my errands (bank, grocery essentials, mall -- all I bought were two body butters, raspberry and blueberry, for $5 each and a strawberry home fragrance oil from The Body Shop! My wallet was shocked!, bookstore), and at around 7PM, my boyfriend and I went out to dinner at TGI Friday's.

We got back from dinner earlier than 9PM, and I'm not joking, we both passed out asleep! I jolted up at 1AM and was awake again until 4! I'd planned on blog-posting last night, but yeah, that didn't happen! haha Unfortunately (fortunately?) what DID happen is that I did a little unplanned online shopping.  Oops!

Anyways, getting to the title of the post! Here's the face/outfit/nails from yesterday.

FACE: Chanel Bronze Universal, NARS Sheer Glow, Benefit Hoola bronzer,YSL Touche Eclat (under eyes), YSL Matt & Radiant pressed powder, Illamasqua Rude cream blush, NARS Enchanted cream blush (highlight)

LIPS: Illamasqua Over l/s

NAILS: Essie Pretty Edgy  (toes are Essie Haute as Hello -- loving both these shades!)

sorry for the crappy bathroom pic! :P

BRACELETS: Target, Macy's
RINGS: Target, Forever21
SANDALS: Miss Trish of Capri for Target

BAG: an Old Navy tote similar to this one (not a foldover)

I saw these two books at Barnes & Noble yesterday, and ordered them online last night -- they look great!

I love to go to the bookstore to find new reads, but almost always end up ordering them online instead.  I just can't stand to pay the retail price when I know I can spend so much less online! For example, if I would have bought these two books in the store, it would have cost $50.95 + tax! Online (, $30.77 plus free shipping.  I mean, seriously, that's a $20+ difference! Does anyone else do the browse store, shop online thing?

What are you reading?

Let me know!

I really want to see Eclipse today, but not sure I'm up to it... (get me, ladies?)... we'll see... (I still need to see Toy Story 3, too!)

See you soon!
<3 Jess


  1. oo I love your dress!
    Now that college is over, I'm excited to spend the summer getting stuck into a few good books! I need to see Toy Story 3 too :)

  2. Love the dress, love the green nails, LOVE the sandals (*wink*), and I'm intrigued by the books.
