Holiday Deals!

I'm not sure if Sephora does this every year, but I just got my $15 gift card (for Beauty Insiders only) in the mail. It starts December 2, good until the 13th and can be used in stores or online. It's good on purchases of $40 or more.

Macys Friends and Family Sale starts December 1! I got my F&F passes a while ago from work, but I didn't pre-buy anything yet, so I will just wait until Thursday. It;s good for 25% off everything (except cosmetics, EDV and some other restrictions), including designer stuff! Also good for 10% off electronics as well.
Online code: MACYSFF

Lately I've been so busy with school and work, I find myself wearing the same neutral look everyday. I've really been loving this look using Patina and Sketch from MAC. It's a nice look for fall (even if we don't have seasons here) with the burgandy and gold combination. It's really wearable and you can easily make it a night look by darkening up the outer corner.

Products Used:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
MAC Soft Ocher Paint Pot
MAC Patina e/s all over the lid
MAC Satin Tapue (sometimes I use Espresso) in the crease
MAC Sketch in outer corner
Kanebo Kate Gel Eyeliner BK2

New phone!

My wallet is hurting after buying my plane tickets and getting a new phone today. But it's been 5 years since I got a new phone (yes, I'm serious) so I got the Samsung Galaxy S for t-mobile.
It's my first smartphone so it's keeping me amused lol. I'm loving it so far :) Anyone else have this phone?

Europe Bound!

I'm so excited! Just purchased my tickets to Europe!
Leaving on March 13th to London and I come home on April 13th from Brussels! It took forever to find a cheap ticket, which I should have bought last week, but I finally got my tickets! It's a huge relief, but I still have to tweak my itinerary. Let me know if you have any tips or experiences traveling in Europe. Any advice would be appreciated!

Travel Blog: Eurotrip!

So I will be graduating this December, and to celebrate the ending of my college career, I've decided to treat myself to a trip to Europe. Europe has always been a dream of mine, and I never though I'd have the chance to go. But I think now is the right time for me to travel, since it will give me a break before I start a full-time job. I've decided to go from mid-March to April, for just about a month. Backpacking is obviously the most economical option, so that's what I'll be doing. I haven't really come up with an itinerary yet, but I have a tentative list of countries I'm planning to visit:
UK: London, Canterbury, Leeds, Lake District, Edinburgh
Germany: Hamburg, Berlin
Switzerland: Interlaken, Zurich, Gimmelwald
Poland: Krakow
Italy: Rome, Pisa, Cinque Terre
I have not booked a ticket yet, but I hope to do so in the next month. Just waiting for the right time since the prices change throughout the day.
Has anyone had experience traveling in Europe? Any recommendations on places to visit or things to do? Any advice would be much appreciated!
