Journal: Shopping Haul

Hey y’all!

I went shopping this weekend with my mom and got some great items! Old Navy had 30% off a few things and I stopped by Nordstrom Rack for the jewelry. 😍 I’m in love with the ring 💍 I was able to find a few matching Nadri pieces to finally create a set. For her designs you really have to hunt them down  and look carefully in store if you want a set! 😉

Shopping for Accessories 

He everyone~

At the job I work at, more than just talking about work, a lot of clients have asked me about my jewelry. If it’s real, it’s so sparkly, where do you shop, along with general compliments are all things I’ve been told and asked on. So I thought why not make a post on it?

Nadri


Her jewelry is absolutely gorgeous! They all look high quality and real even though the stones are cubic zirconia! I get majority of my compliments when I wear her pendant necklaces or rings. I was first introduced to her brand when I went to Nordstrom Rack and my sister and I found a bracelet of hers on clearance, which was great because I was shopping for things to wear at a Desi/Indian wedding. Since I’m petite my wrists are very small, and I found her bracelets to fit me perfectly. 😍 Dream come true!

Gorjana


Another great designer. I discovered this brand when I had my eyes glued to a bracelet at TJ Maxx in their display case. My mom was against it because it was a gold plate over brass but I am very self indulgent when it comes to jewelry so I purchased it. It has become my most favorite gold bangle. The brands other designs are great too.

This is another brand I found at Nordstrom Rack. I actually happened to be looking for Nadri’s brand jewelry at the time and stumbled upon this brand while searching. Their rings that I picked out are really blingy and more on the cocktail ring side. Very pretty. 😁

Old Navy


This store has been very good to me when it comes to finding jewelry at a good value for how many sales the store has. They also sell their jewelry online but I highly recommend going to the store as there is always a bigger variety. Also be aware, from my experience the prices range from store to store! I once bought a ring full price only to find it the same day at another location where all those rings were marked clearance. 😢

Aliexpress


My mother is an Aliexpress shopping maverick. She always has shipments of quality looking jewelry coming in from there and boosts how she gets them for like $4! I honestly don’t know how she sifts through all of the sellers because I’ve had bad luck myself. My first ring I purchased gave me green marks, but my mom never has a single issue. She recommends looking at the sellers’ rating! 😉

Banana Republic Factory Outlet

I love shopping at the outlet store here. Not only is their clothing classic and comfy, with great fit for my petite size, the jewelry is beautiful too.

Game Review: Horizon Zero Dawn

Hello Loves~

I am so happy to do a review of Horizon Zero Dawn, this is long over due as I played and finished the game within 2-3 months alongside my sister right after the game came out. The game is set in a post apocalyptic world, where the characters in the world live alongside robots and the people hunt them for parts to build weapons. No one really knows where the robots came from but the people of various lands all have their theories, you’ll have to play to find out, and boy is it interesting! 😉

BEWARE: There are a few spoilers below the line.

Tree to Tub- Review

Early December last year I got to order the Soapberry products from Tree to Tub’s Black Friday promo sale. I’ve now been using the shampoo and body was since then and I like it though I have a few complaints.

Shopping Haul

Hey guys!

I went shopping last weekend and I thought it would be nice to share with y’all what I got. I wasn’t originally planning to go out since I’m trying to keep up my savings but my sis needed a few things and the shopaholic in me took over at the end to buy just one item, even though it’s not for me. 🙃

My sis tried on all the shoes I asked her to and I must say those black Report shoes are too cute! She ended up buying these in store at Nordstrom Rack and a nude pair online.

While my sis was trying on more shoes I walked over to the handbag section with my mom and found these cute mini bags.

We got hungry and ate at Gordon Birsch and I had a mani mahi sandwich with sweet potato fries and a slice of my mom’s veggie pizza from her plate.

Last but not least, the item I bought that wasn’t for me. My boss asked me to buy a plant buddy for his office so I found an about $20 artificial one at Home Goods. My boss can’t grow a thing as he is a newbie so artificial is best, plus this looks super real! He said if he doesn’t pay me back, and he hasn’t yet, I can keep or return it. 😗 I’ve gotten so many compliments already on it just after a day so I may just keep it at my station!

Target Beauty Box Review

Hi everyone~
I’m back with another beauty box review, hope you enjoy and find it enlightening!

CoverGirl Super Size Mascara by Lashblast $5.99

Pro: Makes lashes thick with about a single coat, and gets into the corners very well.
Con: I did get minor clumping, but I would suggest using a different mascara brush or an eyelash comb to prevent it.
Score: 4 out of 5 Continue reading

Halal Nail Polish? 

In light of my skepticism last year when I found out there was such thing as a halal nail polish, I was really excited, but mostly suspicious. How could there be a halal nail polish? Most nail polishes when they dry to a solid are water proof and do not breathe to let water thru, as needed for a nail polish to be considered halal!

O2M Inglot Nail Polish. I’ve heard about this nail polish for some time, and it has been officially labeled halal, all the nail polish muslimahs rejoiced! However, I do hate to be the bearer of bad news here but I noticed that the girls on YouTube who were testing these polishes, when the news first came out, were going about it all wrong!

Everyone was mostly testing the polish with only one layer on tissue when the polish was wet. Continue reading

Ipsy Glam Bag Review- July 2015

Got My July Glam bag today after work, and I have to say I was pretty happy with a couple of the products. 🙂  Continue reading

Ipsy Glam Bag Review- June 2015

I got my first Glam Bag from Ipsy late last month, and I have to admit I was less than thrilled once I opened my bag. You see, I am critical and picky in nature, but since this was my first bag I was going to give it the benefit of the doubt. Though, after seeing what my sister gets from her Birch and Glossy box subscriptions, it made me feel ehhhh to the whole thing, especially since some items were not my color.  Continue reading
