Joint Haul with Lisa!:)

So yesterday I had the pleasure of going out for a day day trip with my best friend..and what better way to do so then shopping & a movie! Ohh I had a blast,this post will be a joint haul showcasing the things Lisa and I both purchased separately. On a side note 21 Jump Street was an AMMAZING movie, if your in need of a good laugh I definitely recommend it:)

Today I did a lot of damage, most of it was clothing related but I was in great need. I got 2 jewellery items, and one small makeup item and the rest was shirts. 

~Jewellery ~

So these are the bracelets I purchased, they are are a stackable cuff style (lovee this trend). They were each $ 4.00, the bracelet on the left is multi-colored and has silver accent beads. The other bracelet is the exact same style just with gold accents. Both bracelets have 4 wooden bits on it.. gives off such a boho vibe especially the colored bracelet.

Top on the Left is a floral tank with lace emboidery at the neck line. The top on the right is a cream color (off white) consisting of 2 alternating layers of fabric and then lace.
Floral top- $ 14.99
Lace top- $ 9.99
Both are such nice shades of pink, these are more comfy clothes to wear around the house..both are so fuzzy! The Love shirt can be worn off the shoulder and even as a crop top, but I would wear it regularly :)
Sweater- $14.99
   Love Shirt- $ 12.99
As you can see I kinda went Cardigan crazy! It's weird, but it's hard to find full size thin cardigans for me especially ones that aren't so sheer. I was so happy to see these so I just got three colors (light taupe, creme & navy blue) initially I did have 4 but I put down 2 items and got something for my sisters instead:)

- Each cardi was $ 12 .00

I also got more summery floral tops from Blue Notes, these are my fave<3
Top on the left is very vintage inspired whereas the top on right is more so tribal. The vintage top has roses all over the top and bottom, it also has tiny brass buttons near the neck line. The tank has a layered/ tiered effect, that gives a lot of dimension, as well as a nice flow. The top on the right is cinched in around the bust and the rest of the fabric falls freely below.

Floral Vintage top- $ 15.00
Tribal top- $ 15.00


 This eye liner was purchased from Pharma Save, this color is soo nice it matches my everyday eye routine which is like a bronzy golden smokey eye !
I love how it is soo inexpensive:) 

Hello everyone! I am really excited to be doing this haul with my best friend for life, Sabina! A day out shopping and going to the movies was just what I needed to get rid of all the stress that had accumulated since exam time. And as Sabina said, 21 Jump Street was one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is hilarious, and that Channing Tatum looked as cute as ever! If you are looking for a good laugh, definitely go check it out; a brilliant movie indeed! Now, let’s get this haul started! 

The day started off at Pharmasave where I bought a few Nyx products. This is my first time buying anything by Nyx and I was very happy to be able to try out some new makeup products. The first thing I picked up was the jumbo eye pencil in milk. I really love how creamy and thick it is. I do hate how you cannot twist it up once the top point is done, but at least there are videos out there showing us how to depot them which is good and I will definitely be doing that. 

The pencil was $5.99

From Nyx, I also bought two eyeshadows. One is a beautiful, rich, purple palette which I actually bought as a gift for my mom. I love these colors so much; they are so beautiful and you can easily create a smoky purple eye from it. I know she is going to be really happy with it.

 This was $10.99

I also bought a single eyeshadow for myself ! I love this light lavender color because it is so light and girly which matches my subtle makeup style. I really like the packaging in general and how it has those cute four squares in the box. It just made me want to buy it even more. It may seem a bit pricey but it is actually quite a deep container so I am really happy I got it:)

This was $6.99
Continuing on our shopping spree, the next stop was Urban Planet. I love this store so much; the prices are affordable for good quality clothes and the whole store just looked ready for spring with gorgeous, bright colors everywhere! I actually only ended up buying one shirt even though I took so much on to the fitting room to try but I was really happy with this buy!  I love the light, pastel-like color which will be perfect for a cooler, summer day. 

Pastel Shirt- $14.00

 I also bought two beautiful necklaces. I love these because they are very different from any of the stuff I have in my jewellery collection. They are pretty funky and I think it will be cool to mix it with one of my pastel colored shirts for summer. The silver one was $7.00 and the one with all of the different charms was only $5.00. What great deals! It is a bit hard to tell with the lighting but the silver necklace on the left is actually only sparkly on the right side of the circle and plain silver on the left side which is what makes it a bit of a funkier add to my collection. I am really into the dangly charm necklaces lately and I love the rusty, metallic look of the necklace on the right. 

The next stop was Bluenotes! I loved all of the bright colors for summer; there were tons of flowy, long tops that could be worn as dresses or over skinny jeans but unfortunately, I couldn’t find a right fit for me. So I settled for an off-white cardigan. Like Sabina said, it is really hard to find a cute, light cardigan for spring and summer so we were really excited to find these! I love the little bit of lace detailing on the top of it. 

Lace Cardigan- $12 .00

The final stop of our trip was Trade Secrets. I have never bought anything from here because it is a place with all the higher end nail polish brands and it pains me to spend like 8-10 dollars on simply put, paint. But, they were actually having a good sale where their discontinued Essie polishes were half price, meaning $4.50 and their discontinued OPI polishes were $5.00. So, I decided to purchase my first Essie and my first OPI polishes. I love both of these colors which are both pretty different. The OPI is a gorgeous pastel-like pink and I am really excited to try it out for the summer while the Essie is a dark pink-purplish color which I think will also be really cute for the summer or even the early fall. I am excited to see what all the hype with these high end polish brands is. I am definitely expecting really good quality polishes and cannot wait to try them out.

Last but not least, I also purchased one of the mini Essie collections; this one was made for spring and summer and I am in love with all of these colors. But, this is not for me. This is actually for a friend’s birthday. I don’t think I would be able to buy this for myself because it is a bit pricey; $20.00. But, I know she loves nail polishes so I am sure she is going to love this because I definitely do. The colors are such a nice mix of different light shades for the spring and summer. So pretty!

And, what a nice surprise to come home and find an envelope from Loose Button! Sabina is a Luxe Box subscriber and she had the chance to pick 5 friends to receive a complementary Meredesso promotional face and neck toning gel. It was a small 7mL sample but because I do not use these products regularly, I know it will last me quite a while. I was so excited to see this, and I must say that Loose Button is such a kind, caring company and always does their best to keep not only subscribers but also their friends happy! So thank you to Loose Button for this free sample and to Sabina for picking me to receive it! I am looking forward to trying it. 

This was soooo fun to do and I thank Lisa for coming together with me to create this joint haul..just saying there will definitely  be more joint posts to come!:) 

 ..And also a big thank you to all my readers  hope you all have a FANTASTIC day and are as happy as I am right now!!
