Weekend Buys !

I was kind of a naughty girl this weekend.   I went on a bit of a shopping binge.  I normally don't do this, but I did need some new skincare items.  Plus, I have been lusting over a Jo Malone fragrance so, I just went for it.  
I am almost out of my Purity cleanser so I decided I wanted to try a new one.  I was in Sephora in Union Square (I think this is the best one in the city) and there was so many to choose from.  But, I landed on this one from Nude.  It is for oily to combination skin.  Yes, we all know I am as dry as the Sahara but, lately I have been getting a bit oily in my t-zone so I thought I would try this and see how it went.  Next I picked up the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask.  My lips have been so chapped from the cold, windy weather.  My lip balm has been helping, but I need something I can wear overnight to help them heal.  I will let you know how this works!  Than when I was standing online I saw a little package of the Caudalie Dry Oil and the Nail and Hand Cream.  I knew that the Beauty Look Book has raved about the dry oil and who doesn't need a good hand cream so I said hey why not and in the basket it went.  
Then off to Blue Mercury I went.  To be honest this is a store I have never been in before.  I passed it many times but, never took the plunge and went in.  Well, I am glad I finally did.  They have a range of products from Jo Malone to Bobbi Brown to Diptyque to La Mer and a whole lot more.  While I was in there I noticed that there was only one Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede fragrance left so, I knew it had to be.  This fragrance smells so amazing.  I have never fallen so in love with a scent before.  I have been wearing it everyday since and even though is does not last all day I still love it.  And then just because I felt like it I also picked up the La Mer lip balm.  It has been on my wish list for quite some time now and was like what they heck.  Well, I am glad I said what the heck!  I may love this a bit more then my Dior (gasps)!  I know shocking right.  I may love it a bit more only because of the smell and taste.  As I have said before I love when a lip product smells good and tastes good.  And this smells like Orbit sweet mint gum, which is my favorite, and it tastes like sweet, yummy candy.  It has been on my lips everyday since I bought it.  Now the price tag on this is a bit insane but, if you don't mind then I say go for it! 

My new love !
