Recent Purchases

I feel like I've curbed my spending significantly in the past few months, but every once in a while I splurge on a little something for myself (albeit with a coupon code handy, of course). I finally splurged on some anti-aging products from Philosophy because I'm just getting irrationally scared of old age. I've only being using the Hope in a Jar & Eye Hope for 2 days so obviously no noticeable results yet, but I'm "hopeful" (har har). Ulta still has 2 more days of their 20% off your whole purchase event going on right now, so if you're interested, now is the time to buy! Get your individual coupon codes in the mail or email! I also picked up some of my favorite bronzer by Too Faced. It's matte so it's good for contouring. I finally bought the famous Seche Vite top coat. In clothing/accessory purchases, I ended up buying myself the Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5-Zip in Biscuit to fill in a hole in my closet for a small brown bag. I went with the 5-Zip instead of the Mini Mac because I already have a Mac, so I wanted to try a different style. And finally, I got the Dolce Vita Kisa pumps in black as an interesting shoe to wear to work. They are taller than I thought and a bit hard to walk in, but I will definitely wear them. What have you bought recently? Have you filled any holes in your closet?

  1. Siigh. Back when I lived in NYC, I used to regularly see a fancy dermatologist for my skin issues. She went to NYU and always had the snazziest shoes. Anywho... When I started getting in my twenties I asked her if there were any regiments I could start working on to prevent aging. She kind of laughed at me and said there were only a couple of things you can do, the first, and most important, is wear sunscreen ALWAYS. The second was if my skin was dry, to moisturize. and the third was she said that the only "product" that can reverse signs of aging is a prescription retin-A- which I declined, because it has always made my skin peel horribly and I'd rather have wrinkles. She said anything OTC was basically advertising bullshit.

    She also said fillers and botox help, but we weren't there yet.
