laid back sunday face, nails, & outfit

I didn't have much on my plate today - I'm going to the NKOTBSB concert on Friday (so excited!), so I asked to have my days off split this week. I wanted to take it easy, so I skipped my usual mall crawl - can't afford it anyways! - and instead just stopped into Target for a minute (more on that below) and then to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II. 

I've read and loved all the HP books, and love all the movies as well (I own all of them so far, and you better believe I'll be buying this one, too!). I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't seen it yet and plan to, but I will say that it definitely lived up to my high expectations. I'm sad to see it end, but glad that it ended so beautifully. I hope it KILLS at the box office! ;)

Thank you to J  @ Lil Lady's Life for her review of the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation that pushed me to give it a try. It's such a nice foundation! I've only worn it twice, but so far so good! It has a lovely finish and shade 1 is a perfect match for me. I love my enabling friends!

SANDALS: Miss Trish for Target

BAG: Target

....and I was in a Target fitting room when I took this. Gee, you think I might like Target or something?

On a side note, I used Lancome's Flash Bronzer for Legs (on my legs, arms, and chest - yes, I know it's intended for legs, and I broke the rules!) for the second time.  After a nightmare experience with the Kate Somerville towelettes (blotchiest mess EVER), I'm soooo happy at how evenly this applies! It does have that self-tanner scent, but I honestly don't mind it, especially if it gives such nice results!  I only have a sample tube of this product, but I'm definitely going to be adding it to the wishlist.

I tried on this dress while I was there - love it! 

I was proud of myself, though - I went to Target for one thing - and that's all I left with! The one thing? A box of L'Oreal Superior Preference Les Blondissismes LB01 - my all-time favorite shade of blonde.  I'm just tired of the dark hair - I'm a blonde at heart, what can I say. ;)  I'm also going in for a haircut on Tuesday. I haven't had one since December and it's outta control!

I'll let you know how it goes...

Thanks for reading! See you girls soon!

  1. Glad that you're an HP junkie too. I just bawled my eyes out through the whole 2nd half! The movie did the book justice :)

    PS - how do you like the Miss Trish for Target Sandals? I'm curious about the quality.

  2. Alex - I looove the Miss Trish sandals. I got a pair last year, too, and I wear both constantly and they've really held up well! I think they're a steal! :)

  3. I LOVE your makeup look. Love it. The cool-toned eyes bounce nicely off the warm cheeks. And, I'm DYING for that lipstick! I'm going today to get them, actually. :D <3 xxx

  4. Love the FOTD and the cute outfits! :) That blush combo looks stunning on you!

  5. Ack! I have been so tempted by that bag at Target ... I think I am going to get it now, lol.
