Recent Beauty Pick-ups & Purchases - Drugstore Edition

I'm on an non-official no-buy and let's just say that its not going well.  I have failed miserably thus far and can't wait till July is over so I can stop feeling guilty and enjoy my purchases.

Most of the following were purchased over a period of a few weeks and have already been posted on Instagram. But I've been feeling the urge to splurge more than ever, and putting myself on a non-official no-buy seems to have propelled me into binge zone rather than curbing my spending.  Which usually happens, and the reason I am SO BAD about no-buys and don't bother with them.  But I digress.  Here are the products I've recently purchased.  Let me know what you have tried and liked.

May-June '14 Beauty Product Empties

Forgive me, I'm a bit late with the Empties post this time around.  Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging you know.  Not much happening in the empties post this time around. Although you can tell that I made a concerted effort to start digging through my samples.

Project Make-a-Dent - First post

I've been following this series on the blog Lola's Secret Beauty Blog.  Please see her original post here where she explains it all.  For me, the best part of #projectmakeadent is that it's not exclusionary.  You don't have to put yourself on a make-up ban, something that I would truly suck at.  It just helps you focus on a few items so you can use your stash.  I love that.  I've been trying to do something similar by using the same products for a week at a time, but I still seem to have trouble finishing products.  I would really like to finish a lippie and one foundation by the end of the summer.

Happy 4th of July

Sometimes I can't believe that I have lived in America for close to 17 years.  As much as I love my country Botswana, I have to admit to enjoying my life and family in America.

So Happy Independence Day to my adopted country. 

Thank you!

Now I know Monsieur Louboutin is French and not American, but I feel like these red, white and blue shoes capture the spirit of the holiday, don't you?
