I have a problem: I love Ulta. Can you blame me? They have all of my favorite drugstore and designer brands for a fantastic price! I’ve made two trips this week and I am not ashamed! I find the best way to change up your look for less is by making little tweaks to your beauty routine. This fall I’m amount up my lip color and rocking my bushy brows!

Get them all in one stop at Ulta!
This Sunday, despite our late start, was spent wandering through racks of vintage treasures at the Alemany Flea Market.
The conditions for pictures weren’t the best. It was super bright and sunny and very windy! Again, my hair was blowing all over the place. Thank goodness for lipstick and photoshop!
So many adorable trinkets and doo-dads! I loved these little vintage avon perfume and lotion bottles. This one was shaped like a little toad stool with a frog prince sitting on top! The only thing deterring me from buying the lot was the contents inside. Sixty year old beauty products do not keep well.
By the time we arrived, half of the vendors were beginning to pack up. Note for next time: Bring more cash and arrive EARLY!
There were so many racks full of awesome sweaters and jackets. This sweater is ideal for throwing on over a long sleeve dress when you something cozy and chic. One of my favorite finds was a hunter green sweater featuring a fox hunter and his hounds. Too bad it was just a little too big and a little too pilled for my taste.
Expect to find a TON of great vintage. One booth in the far back of the market (or front given you entered the correct) stood out as the favorite. This tent was full of amazing vintage pieces and everything I picked up had a $10 price tag. Jessie and I got to play with some of the best pill box hats and vintage veils! Definitely a great place to hit up if your looking for a halloween get up.
Oh look! I’m a gif!
I recently stopped biting my nails and I’ve been loving my new claws! To keep the no-biting-streak going, I’ve been looking for new ways to dress them up. This nail blog (or at least I think it is. Thats what I gathered from Google’s translation, anyway.) has me ooh-ing and ah-ing over their gorgeous nail art!
I’m not very talented, nor do I have time or money for a professional manicure. If I did, however, I would give one of these styles a try in a heartbeat!
