a hangout and a [sephora] haul.

this past weekend, jackie was in town, so we met up for lunch and shopping. (we also met up here and here). she's currently taking a break from blogging to focus on school, but you can still check out some of her awesome looks on fashionation street.

rocking the aviators.
jackie's wearing the real deal, ray-bans.
i got mine from amazon (thanks to julie for sharing the link!).
i've had a bunch of sephora gifts cards for a while now and always left empty-handed because the store is overwhelming! this time i actually needed things, so it was easier to narrow down the choices. i needed an everyday powder, so i bought laura mercier's foundation powder at their recommendation. so far i'm loving it.
a new gel eyeliner was on my list, so i decided to try sephora's pitch black all-in-one liner.
i think i'm the last person to try these sugar kisses.
i finally bought one, and they surprised me with
the mini duo set for my free birthday gift.
(sephora now has a mino trio, just in time for mother's day.)
a hangout is never complete without food and drinks...
coffee jelly au lait with soy milk and yummy appetizers.

what do you splurge on at sephora?

Glad you had fun with your friend. You guys look great. I go to Sephora all the time 'cause it's just down the block from me. I buy lots of lipsticks and makeup tools there.

Hey, looks like a fun time was had.
I love those Sugar balms too. I ordered from Sephora last year and received those as a free gift too.

Enjoy!

Those sunglasses look amazing on you! Thanks for linking me, you're too sweet. You're going to love Iron Man 3. You got some great stuff at Sephora, I get overwhelmed when I go there too there's so much to look at and try. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Oh no! I'm a sephora freak! I can stay in that store for hours! Xmas time, I stay in there even longer looking for gifts. I always get facial wash, eye liner, perfume, eye shadows and polish for my niece. Oh.. and now that they have all this Hello Kitty stuff, OMG! It's bad! I actually haven't tried the sugar kisses either, but have been meaning to for a long time. After reading this, it's on my to do list! Love the sunnies! Have a great weekend!

So glad I'm not the only person who finds Sephora overwhelming. Sometimes I walk away empty-handed too, but sometimes I'd rack up quite a purchase.

Awwww. You girls look great together.
