I've been doing some shopping recently...but seriously, what else is new? I've come to the realization that I have a severe shopping problem. The minute I have some spare money, I get the overwhelming feeling to buy things I really don't need.
I get the worst buyers remorse afterwards and almost always consider returning my purchases. As I'm writing this post, I just came home from Target (the worst place for shopping addicts) and was considering actually going back to return two of the items.
It really hit me the past few days that I have a problem and it needs to stop. The first step is acceptance, right?
Anyways, I'm still going to show you some of the stuff I've bought over the past few weeks. The beginning of a season always brings this out in me because I want new clothes, makeup, bag--everything!
I've gone everywhere from TJ Maxx to Target to CVS and the things in this haul are completely random. Some I've used, some I haven't. Warning, the items are random!
The reason I'm doing this is because these are my favorite types of posts, next to "What's in my bag" because I love seeing what people buy/use on a daily basis. Let me know in the comments if you want to see more posts like this because I will gladly do them!
//Milani Lipsticks: These babies strike again! I'm obsessed with them. I've noticed that they slightly dry my lips and it's best if you use a lip balm beforehand but still, I love them. I bought the "Pretty Natural" shade which is more pink than nude but it's a great all year color.
//Eye Masks: I've gotten used to sleeping with a sleeping mask over the past few weeks but mine broke and I needed a new one. I found this satin one at CVS and there was a sale on Essence products so I also bought a gel eye mask that can be used cold or hot. It's the perfect product to pamper yourself with.

//Logitech Mouse: The trackpad on my Macbook has been glitchy for a few years now and I've gone through two mouses previously. Usually I could handle using the glitchy trackpad but with work and me using my laptop more, I needed a new one. This is what I originally went to Target for, by the way.
//Maybelline Matte Lipsticks: Everyone has been ravving about these babies and I needed them. Target had every shade in stock but I knew I wanted "Touch of Spice", a mauve/nude color that can be described as "Kylie Jenner's color". It's super moisturizing and gives a perfect matte finish. I may need to buy another one.
//ELF Small Stipple Brush: This is a classic brush that most beauty vloggers on Youtube swear by and it's been on my wish list for months. It's mostly used with cream products and some blushes but I feel like this could be a very versatile brush and I'm excited to use it.
//Benzoyl Peroxide Gel: My skin has been obscene lately. I seriously don't know what it is (I'm blaming it on the NYC subway) but it's been a real issue. I've never had bad skin and to have a bunch of white heads and black heads take over my face. I did some research and some strong acne medication, such as this. I'm hoping it works. If anyone has any suggestions for treating whiteheads, let me know :)
//Marie Claire: For the sake of showing you everything, I picked up the October issue of Marie Claire with Ariana Grande on the cover. I don't usually read Marie Claire but something about the cover compelled me to buy it.
I bought this evil eye necklace a few weeks ago and I've been wearing it constantly. I've always loved the idea of evil eyes and when I saw this as a Buried Bauble (every week BaubleBar puts a few items on sale for $10 for 24 hours) and knew I had to get it.
Honorable Mention: American Eagle and TJ Maxx:
A new shopping center opened up near me fit with a JC Penny, TJ Maxx, Burlington Coat Factory, Nordstrom Rack and DSW. I am going to go insane here but I already hit up TJ Maxx with my grandma.
She treated me to a nice striped sweater and this lovely smelling Yankee Candle in Autumn Harvest. I need to buy more Fall scented candles. Bath and Body Works anyone? They have such great scents!
From AE: I bought myself two new pairs of jeggings, both the same type--black and dark blue. I haven't taken either pair off. American Eagle jeans are the only ones I wear.
I'm pretty sure I covered everything I've purchased within the past few weeks. Looking at it all laid out, I could see I definitely have a problem but hey, it's ok for now ;)
