Coach Outlet Haul

We decided to go to the Gilroy Premium Outlets and I had to stop by Coach. I love Coach! I especially love Coach at a discount! I seem to always find good deals here! They tend to have a clearance table and it's usually 50% off and lately for the past 6 months they have coupons that they give you at the door for an additional 20% off sale items. I found these two and loved them! They are regularly priced at $328 each marked down to $250 then you take half off with an additional 20% and it cost $100 each. Great deal! I'm sold! Great price and great quality! What's not to love? I couldn't decide on which color I wanted more since one of my favorite colors is pink and I'm a signature beige logo fan so I got both! What I like most about these is the middle section where it looks like a coin purse clasp which is ideal since the bag has no zippers so you can keep your wallet hidden and secure. If you have a chance to check out the Coach outlets I highly recommend it. We live about 45 minutes away and it's always worth the trip :)

Doc Martens and Hello Kitty Collab

Remember Doc Martens? Back when I was in high school ('91-'95) I used to wear them all the time they were Black, 8 hole, and Steel Toed. It wasn't the most girlie shoes in the world but they were comfortable and it gave a don't mess with me or I'll kick your butt attitude. Now to mix that with Hello Kitty? I would have worn these with pride. Since you all know I'm a huge Hello Kitty fan. ;) Granted they are flashy but I liked being different. The release date for these are September 1st and will be available at Nordstroms and Sanrio. Prices range from $135-$165 I may get a pair for nostalgia's sake.

My First Louis Vuitton

Today was my Hubby Alex's 32nd birthday so after our birthday dinner we decided to got to Valley Fair Mall to browse. During our drive I started talking about Louis Vuitton and how eventually I would like to own one. He knows my addiction to purses and said we could look around the LV store. I have to admit I was hesitant at first because first it was HIS birthday and second it's a lot of money to spend on a purse. So we ended up going to the LV store and after looking at Speedys I told Alex I would love to have a Damier Ebene Speedy 35 for Christmas (yes I like to plan in advance lol) He looks at me and tells me he's going to get it! After a few moments of us "arguing" back and forth Me: "Are you sure?" Him: Yes! Me: "Are you sure sure?" Him: "Yes! GET IT Babe!!" Hubby to the sales lady: "We'll take it! before she changes her mind!"

So a million thank yous and kisses later...I present my first Louis Vuitton Speedy!

Lost Wedding Band & Gucci Sunglasses Haul

Hey Everyone!! I know I have been MIA for awhile, life has been very hectic and I haven't had much time to blog but I am back! I have to admit I haven't hauled very much but I have picked up a few things which I will share over the course of a few blog entries. I hope everyone has been doing well!

Today I lost my wedding band and I'm so distraught! I can't seem to remember where I placed it. The one comfort I can take solace in is the fact that I know I did lose it at home. Which is great right? but it's like finding a needle in a haystack. I had to tell the Hubby..he was worried but wasn't too upset. I think he knows I'll be beating myself up until I find it. I'm so upset that I've lost my appetite. So what do I do? I distract myself with some retail therapy I take the Hubby to Solstice Boutique to buy him his Carrera aviator sunglasses he's been wanting. We find out they were having a promotion buy one pair of Carreras get a $25 gift card to your next purchase. So he tells me to pick a pair for myself. I try these Gucci's on and the Hubby LOVES them on me. My husband has never had much of an opinion when it comes to accessories so when he said he liked them I got them!

Smiling after I found my ring!! Had to cover my red eyes from the crying!
After I picked these up I got teary eyed, even with a new pair of sunglasses I couldn't help but think of my ring. I don't really care about material items but the ring has such a strong sentimental value. The Hubby assured me I would find it but my mind was racing. So what does he do? He offers to buy me a Louis Vuitton purse. Alex has a heart of gold he hates to see me cry and would do anything for me. This offer made matters worse! I cried even more because of guilt and my carelessness. We decided to head home to search for the ring. After about an hour I finally found it! It was in a purse I used for work. I must have put it in there when settling in after work! I was ecstatic!! Needless to say I will never take off my ring without placing it in my jewelery box! Lesson learned!!

MAC Colour Craft Haul

Hubby got back from his trip today and he decided to take me shopping. I was able to snag the Colour Craft collection early (this is to be released on July 9) so I decided to post up some pics. I pretty much got all the MSF's, eyeshadows, and blushes. I had to pick up the brushes since I absolutely loved the 226 from the BBR collection and the 131 looked intriguing! I will be posting up swatches soon (I got the hubby to volunteer his arm) My impressions of this collection are good! I love the blushes the veining is so pretty! The blushes do have fine shimmer to them which I really like since it gives you a dewy look. As for the eyeshadows the colors are great but you will need a base. I find it nice because you basically get 4 colors in one pot, the 2 main colors and the highlights which compliment each other perfectly. The MSF's are pretty as well. Three of them remind me of the MSF from the BBR collection with the striped look unfortnately I was unable to get the gld veining on my pink MSF but needless to say it goes on very natural and looks great. I hope you are all able to check out this collection soon!

MAC Naked Honey Haul

I tried to stay away but I couldn't resist this collection. The highlight powders were so pretty! It's too bad that the shimmer comes off :( but I still really like the colors. I ended up buying the salve for my hubby since he has dry skin and so far he likes it! The salve has a honey type scent to it so it isn't too overwhelming. Did you pick up anything from this collection?
