My Weekend, mini face, and SPRING HAUL!

DISCLAIMER: I know that some of you don't know that your pictures are going on here... if you mind, please email me or message me and I'll have it down asap. 

    Hahaha! I know most of you girls love seeing what I haul in. It's kind of embarrassing.
I actually buy a whole lot of other stuff in between the hauls as well... I might do some reviews if anyone is interested!

    You're welcome to skip this part by scrolling through the pictures and figuring out which are the haul pictures.

    SO this past Friday, I got to chill with 3 of my girls! It was really fun and exciting, because we haven't done this in a while. It really brought back memories of the past summers we've had together. I had to work from 8am to 4pm, so I was really exhausted. While I took a nap at home, Tiffany and Adelaide were shopping. They texted me to wake up at 7pm to go eat! First, we had to pick up Jessica from work though, so we headed there. It was funny, because Adelaide and Tiffany bought vitamins there. DID YOU KNOW they sell Rock and Republic jeans? I laughed really hard.

    We made our way to the South side Tropika. It's supposedly authentic Malaysian Cuisine. More like americanized. We ordered pineapple fried rice, Laksa, and pad thai that tasted like ketchup. I think the most enjoyable part of the meal was just being together. hehe.

    After all that food, we went to get BBT. Yum. :)

    On Sunday, we went to Cora breakfast and lunch. I LOVE IT THERE. Food is so yummy. I tweeted about this... I couldn't contain my excitement. My friends were making fun of me because I was taking pictures of everything. They said I looked like a tourist... Hahaha.

Mmm that's all for the food outtings with my friends.

I got home a while ago, and thought that I should do my make up. Random, I know. When am I not, though? It makes things more interesting.

Here's my face with what was left over from what I put on the morning... The make up is probably all worn off...

I dug some stuff out of my drawer and slapped it on my face.

I really regret buying this Dior palette. The shadows are so hard to blend. Urban Decay's are way better. Do not invest in [this] one. :(

Put some shadow and liner.

I'm using my new blush! It's the Tarte Amazonian clay blush.

Voila~! Cam whoring my new frames. A little late on the trend, but it's still fun. Bought them from Urban Outfitters, and I've already scratched them. Oh well.


HAUL!! This is what I have accumulated over the past week. I'm crazy. Please don't kill me.

Sephora had a 15% off sale, and my shoppers was taking $40 off any $100 purchase. Wtf, right? You all knew I couldn't resist. (Prices in brackets are original prices)

I heard it would help with my acne scarring as well. 

Then, I got Boscia
