Small Haul + Review + Ramble

Hey girls,

So I'm not sure if I publicly declared this or not, but one of my New Year's Resolutions was to stop buying makeup and use up the stuff I have. I always have the best intentions going into these things but I never really expect myself to last very long (which is why we shouldn't make resolutions to begin with). Anyhow, I lasted a total of 9 days. Congrats to me...here's what broke my ban:
I stopped by my local CVS yesterday and found a bunch of makeup on sale for 75%. I never really need any of this stuff, but find myself wanting to buy it just because it's on sale. Does anyone else have this problem? I think I might find myself on the verge of a slight shopping problem (LOL!). I got a Milani Palette in Touch of Brown for $1.75 and another for a friend. I also picked up a Rimmel Blush in Santa Rose. I really love the Milani Palette- the colors are gorgeous and great quality, maybe even some of the best eyeshadows I've tried from drugstores. I also really like the blush- it's a nice coral peach. The lasting power isn't that great but hey it was $.87

A few days ago, I ordered these pumps from Aldo. I had been eying them for awhile and finally caved. They are called "Guritz" and available in two colors:
I love suede pumps! They were $40 but I was able to get another 10% off. For those of you new to Aldo, you can sign up for their mailing list on their homepage and they will send you a coupon instantly.

And lastly, look what I found in New York: a giant Hello Kitty sculpture by artist Tom Sachs. So cute and ginormous! If you're in the area, it's located on 53rd and Park.
