Haul: Forever 21 & Ulta

So.... I've been meaning to post this but I've been so busy lately that I haven't had time.  These are purchases I made a while ago.  I wanted to share what I got because I think they were really good deals!

First... Forever 21!  I'm not a huge F21 fan but their jewelry is cute and cheap and hey, I'm cute and cheap too! =) 

The big trend out right now is your hair, on your head and on your ears! So I saw this 3 pack of feather earrings and HAD to buy them... only $3.80! Brown, pink and white feathers! So cute!

 The next thing I bought was this set of bracelets. I'm big into the look of pearls because I think it's a classic look. I just liked the way these looked together. They aren't attached so you can mix and match what you want!  Again... $3.80!

 This purchase was probably my favorite! I don't know why I like the look of a ship anchor, but I do! This is super cute and not too busy and it's a long necklace but not too long. How much you ask? $3.80!! WHAT?!  Yup, that's right.

Next I want to talk about my Ulta purchase.  I heard that all of their NYX products were buy one and get one half off so I had to take part!  I've really been wanting to try the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils so I ordered 4 of them! They are normally $4.50 a piece... so it's like I bought 3 and got the 4th one free! One thing I LOVE about ordering on is that you get to choose free samples to go along with your purchase!

The colors I picked for my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils were: Horse Radish (light green), Iced Mocha (light brown), Cottage Cheese (shimmery white) and Strawberry Milk (light pink).

I love using the eye pencils before putting on shadow, kind of like a primer but with color! I've noticed that it makes my shadow last longer throughout the day and it really holds the color.  I'm completely satisfied with them! Love them! I tried the sample of the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer and thought it was nice. It's a little greasy but it made my skin feel smooth instantly. I liked it but I wouldn't purchase it. I can't say that I've tried the other samples yet but I look forward to it!

If you have questions about any of these products just comment below!

Have a great weekend!!

Eyes of the Day: Seeing Green

So, I'm starting a EOTD: Eyes of the Day!  I thought it was fitting since my blog is called HB Bright Eyes... only makes sense, right??  =) 

I LOVE trying out different colors for my eyes and today I really stepped out of my comfort zone! I went with different shades of green! Layering the colors on top of each other really makes a difference and I just loved the way this turned out!

First I used my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in it.  I applied it directly to my lid, up to the crease and blended it out with my Sigma E25 Blending Brush ! Then I put a light, frosty green color on my inner lid. I'm not sure of the color but it's in my E.L.F. Pro Eyeshadow Palette and then a darker, aqua - green color (from the same palette) in the crease and outer edge of my lid. I then added my highlight color on my brow bone. I used my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese (funny) and then blended EVERYTHING together! 

I know explaining it in words is a little weird and that I should make a video, right?! Well, I'm trying to get up the courage to do so!  I think after I watched  my friend Edith in her video about Body Image on her YouTube Channel I may have worked up the nerve! My son is gone this weekend with his dad so I have the "camcorder" to myself..LOL. We'll see how it goes! I just loved Edith's video and I really think she has the right idea about life! What an insipration!

I hope I have inspired all of you to try something different!

Song of the Week: Colors by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals

This week has been a rough one.  Somehow I made it through.  This song gives me serenity.

Girly Obsession: Pretty Soap

I think every girl wants to smell good!  Whether it's for themselves or someone else, smelling fresh, fruity or floral is something a girly girl takes pride in.  Being a girly girl myself, I love coming across new "smell goodies."  I love Bath & Body Works (I could spend a fortune in there)... I love perfume counters... I love soap shops like Lush.  Sometimes I don't have the time or money to go to Lush so through my social media connections I came across Mel's Sweet Bar

Mel is a girly girl too! She makes amazing soaps and bath bombs in fun designs like cupcakes and slices of watermelon! ALL of her products are skin safe, which is great for me because I have sensitive skin! She uses 100% pure almond oil in the products and all are glycerin or cold process.  I had to try out her soaps and I'm glad I did!  This is what I got!!!.............
Red Velvet Cupcake Soap
 Electric Lemonade Soap
 Birthday Cake Bath Bomb
 Pinky Paradise Bath Bomb
 Pink Sugar Scrub

I haven't been able to use ALL of the products yet but I will tell you that the Red Velvet Cupcake Soap is in my shower right now and it smells SOOO GOOD.  Not only does it make your skin smell delicious but it makes the whole bathroom smell yummy!  I've also used the Pink Sugar Scrub and I'm not sure if she gave me the wrong thing or what but there was no "scrub" on the Pink cubes of soap she gave me so they are more like little cubes of sweet smelling soap, which I'm fine with.  She threw in an Electric Lemonade soap to compensate I think!

If you have any questions about these products, let me know! If you want to purchase from her website I encourage you to do so but HURRY!  She's re-vamping her website, products and packaging starting June 25th and will be on hiatus until July 15th! 

Another company I'm enjoying right now is the Scottish Fine Soaps Company! I was in Marshall's a while back and always love to look in there bath & body section.  They normally have pretty high end products for a fraction of the price! I came across The Scottish Fine Soaps - Soap in a Tin!  They had a few different scents in cute little tins and I HAD to get one!  I ended up buying the Lemon soap and it smells out of this world!! I highly recommend these soaps for your kitchen or bathroom.

I hope you enjoyed this look at "pretty soaps" and if you know of any good, cheap, pretty soaps... let me know!
