Hello everyone! I’ve been MIA for quite some time and I’m going to be posting a personal blog update explaining where I’ve been and why I haven’t been posting in my next blog post. First though, I need to try and catch up a little bit because I am very VERY behind on my posts which I insanely apologize to my followers, readers, friends, and sponsors/collaborators. I’ll explain in my next post.
I’ve decided to combine all of my “WALMART” hauls into one post because I’ve been there a lot this past month or so.
HAUL #1 – Clearance/Dollar Shopping
Clearance or “dollar shopping” is when I like to go to a store (like the dollar store or Walmart or a thrift or antique shop, DD’s Discounts & Fallas which are cheap clothing stores, with less than $10 and go on a “shopping spree”. My dog Bambi (@bambiisajerk) has been… Well as gross as it is, eating my socks and underwear from the dirty launder basket… Yuck I know. So I went to Wal Mart and got some new lace ones! There’s one more orange and pink ombré thong not pictured above.
Then I got a purple pumpkin for Halloween! I really want to use it as my purse but that maybe a little awkward LOL.
I’m also working on replacing all my towels with different shades of purple so this is a dark magenta towel.
Then I got some makeup two new lipsticks from “Hard Candy” a nice Lilac “Sly-lac” and a vibrant green “Jealousy” I believe it’s called?
I’m really in love with their lipstick tubes and the diamonds. They also had some awesome shades of orange, yellow, etc. all really bright and beautiful! I need to replace my black AGAIN for the second time ASAP. The store the sells it is a 15 minute drive and I’m never really in the area so I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I’m trying to replace and expand my lipsticks and nail colors for a blog called shades. It’s going to feature every shade I have in a color palette and I want more than just pinks and reds so I’ve been working on collecting a variety of “off” colors like black, purple, green, orange, yellow, blues… Etc. this new lilac color is amazing and would go great with my dream shoes which I will one day own “Frozen Lilac” low top Converse.
It’s an off season color that I believe is sold during Spring. They sell a darker purple during this time of year.
This little fuzzy keychain is a lilac color but the way I edited it makes it look more pink. The heart is an added detail from a small purple hairbrush travel kit my friend gave me that has a mini purple brush, comb and mirror with purple feathers on the back of them. Not going to lie, I was considering buying a bunch of these and putting them in my shop Rogue Daisies with a few customizations like my added heart keychain. What do you think? They pretty much had every color from gray to white to brown, green, yellow, etc. they’re fuzzy and adorable!
The LA Looks nail polishes are actually a gift from someone. They also gave me a mini travel sized mascara. The other color is pink cuz I don’t have as many pink shades as I thought I did. The “blue” color is called “It’s All A Bluer” by Pure Ice and it’s kinda funny because I got the shade and when I got home it’s literally the EXACT SAME COLOR as my favorite purple nail polish by CoverGirl called “Vio-last”. Literally the exact same color…
I don’t think I’ve posted my nails from the first week of Septemeber yet (that’s a different blog) but to give you an idea this is my favorite nail polish (both color and brand).
I’ll post this blog with all the photos ASAP.
I think I actually spent $20 not $10 but I really adore the items I got!
HAUL #2 – The Essentials
Really sorry for the horrible lighting and photo quality with these ones. I’ve been really lazy lately but I want to get my groove back with blogging so I’d rather post them then not post anything at all.
This haul is from last night I got two pairs of work shoes but they’re just black slip resistant shoes no need to see them…
Lately I’ve been running out of space in all my smaller purple makeup bags. I even have a tablet case / bag that’s gotten too small so I saw this bag that’s bigger than all of them and snagged the last purple one.
These are mostly just essential items. I got my usual disposable razors but wanted to try out these other ones that are refillable. Mostly because they are purple but also because I’ve been having some problems shaving my underarms and need a razor that “curves”. The disposable “Glow” have 3 razor blades. I actually normally use “Twilight” so these are new too. I’ll test them all and let you know which is my favorite. The one on the far left comes with a ribbon of Moisture for extra smooth skin and has 5 razors. The darker purple is called “Swirl” and was quite expensive so it better be worth it. It has 5 razors and Has a flexi ball. And curves in order to get every hair (reason I wanted it). It also has a moisture serum that’s activated when it gets wet so it helps with smoothness.
Lastly, I got some purple shoelaces, one flat and one round, a new Chapstick “Blackberry Nectar” and it’s really good… Taste wise lol doesn’t stay on too long tho. Then I found a pack of lighters with a purple one and the gas station has been sold out for quite some time now so I got it.
HAUL #3 – Just for Fun
This morning I went back for a black belt because my work belts keep breaking but no need to show its just a regular black belt. I also got some new stud earrings because my ears aren’t used to wearing earrings and I want to get them used to it 24/7 again. I wanted all purple but they didn’t have a pack of all purple. I already have one pair of purple studs so I got two more and figured I’d wear the black ones or simple white ones for my fourth hole.
The other pack is all the same. I might sell some cuz I don’t need 9 pairs… Then again maybe I do because I used to have tons of earrings I don’t know where they all went though…
Then I went to get a pair of purple frame glasses (prescription that will arrive in about a week!) so I got a purple case for them and some purple microfiber clothes to clean them. Lastly, my purple mini notepad is for my RSH ideas. My old one is almost full so I got two of them to stock up.
Lastly, I’m still doing a collaboration with an amazing company called Polette! I was supposed to order back in July but my frames went out of stock and I wanted to wait for a restock. I don’t think they’re coming back 🙁 so I’m moving forward with it! (About time!!)
These are the original frames I wanted that sold out…
I need help choosing my frames tho! Not sure if I should get a second pair of purple prescription glasses because these ones are different shapes and shades of purple. OR if I should get a pair of prescription SUNGLASSES so I don’t have to wear contacts/wear them over my glasses while driving etc. I would be able to see out of my sunglasses!
I’m not sure which to do! BOTH SOUND LIKE AWESOME IDEAS! Plus I want ALL OF THESE!
I need to decide quickly so they don’t sell out while I’m choosing like the last ones! What do you think? My Walmart frames are more of a dark violet/magenta pair with pink and lavender squares on the sides. The Perth would be a totally different style and color. Insomniaque isn’t my usual style but I could totally rock them!
My favorite sunglasses are probably the Times Square. I don’t own ANY PURPLE GLASSES. I wanted to get some purple aviators too but I can get those online for like 99 cents they’re pretty basic.
Nostronmo is awesome AF I’m just scared they may not be purple in real life and come out a different color you know? The frames are white. Same with the Dame Pink.
These are the aviators I want except the ones I want have purple frames not gold and they’re more violet not purple. They’re $20 at Walmart so in trying to find them cheaper but yeah. Basic. Purple. Aviators. I want to find them wholesale for the shop!
Anyways, I have to go. I still have one more haul to post from a month ago but it’s HUGE!!! It’s my back to school haul. EVERYTHING from my notepads, to comp books, my stylus, pens, pencils, back back, folder, literally EVERYTHING is purple so stay turned for my obsession with that. x
Ps. I know the navigation needs to be fixed sorry about that! :/
