My aunt lives near a huge mall, called Kenwood Towne Center, so my mom and I went there early Friday morning. I decided just to visit two stores, Sephora and Bath & Body Works.
I felt that was enough, because I'm not much of a mall shopper. You guys know I'm an online girl! HaHaHa I viewed the mall's layout (map) online and found out that both stores were near Macy's.
Can you now tell how far I will go to avoid crowds? HaHaHa So let me tell you what I purchased...
First Stop... Sephora! I go freakin' nuts when I shop Sephora online, so you can imagine how I acted when I stepped into the store. It's like BEAUTY PRODUCT HEAVEN. The sales people there were really nice. I purchased the new Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation. The sales lady helped me pick the right shade. As you can see from the pic below, there are a multitude of shades. I will do a Sweet or Not Review of it soon.
Remember, I suggested to you guys to take pics of things
you want from magazines?
Well, it truly helped me while in Cincy! I've been wanting to try the new STILA stay all day waterproof liquid eyeliner. Saw it in a magazine, Thandie Newton says it's her favorite, so I bought it! Again, I'll do a review later. Then I bought some old and new favorites. LOVE Pure Grace body wash by Philosophy! It's my everyday bodywash. LOVE Benefit's Boi-ing Concealer!!! I swear it's the best concealer I ever tried. It STAYS ON, without feeling heavy and doesn't slide off your face! The Sephora girls loaded me up on samples and then I headed to...
Bath and Body Works!!! My mom loves their Japanese Blossom and Warm Vanilla Sugar (both are classics) line. So she bought those. I purchased their SLEEP and STRESS shower gels for only $5 (Sale!). Love those!!! I also purchased the Brown Sugar Fig Collection for my fellow blogger-friend Kizzy of The Dainty Dolls House Blog that lives in the UK (Scotland). I love her! Kizzy, I'm rounding up all your stuff girl. You should get it by Christmas...cause stuff keeps happening! HaHaHa But ladies, the topping on the cake were their candles. Each one smelled SO GOOD! It was fun seeing Halloween stuff out to. The Bath & Body Work's sale lady was so helpful. She was a doll!
Do you believe in angels?
I just want to take a moment, to recognize a lady (that was a stranger) that was in Bath & Body Works and she overheard that my mom and I were from New Orleans.
You guys, she had the prettiest, BRIGHTEST BLUE eyes and two young children in a double stroller. Her eyes and stare were piercing and it was almost like she was in a trance! Her eyes were hypnotic and they did not look like contacts. She handed me several sheets of coupons (she said her computer/printer just kept spitting them out that morning). She held and touched my hand.
Don't think I'm crazy, but I swear God was working through this woman. She was like an angel! After I finished purchasing everything, I walked through Macy's and this woman just stared at me and said omg'd your complexion is so beautiful...you have this glow! You guys this happened right after I encountered the woman with the beautiful blue eyes. I just felt I had been in touched! It still gets to me. I just wanted to share that experience with you. That's why I believe in giving what I can to others, whenever I can. This concludes my stay in Cincinnati. Hope you enjoyed my posts! :)
