LUSH+Forever21 Mini Haul/ Gets! + Updates+ NOTDs (Image Heavy!)

OMG I'm sorry for being such a bad blogger, I've been really busy, and then as soon as school ended, I got a bad cold D:. So I've been at home for the majority of break!

Anyways, a new F21 opened in San Diego! It's amazing, I think it's almost as big, or bigger than the one at Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas!

I got a few things but, I just want to show you guys this pallette!

It's like a Coastal Scents dupe! Really cheap too, 10 bucks on sale.

Even had a mirror! Really similar to the original.

The main difference is that the colors aren't the same. I don't like how the colors are organized either, it's kinda....disorganized..
There's also a perfumey scent to the shadows, it doesn't bother me, but I find it kinda weird (are people supposed to smell your eye..?)

A LUSH Cosmetics opened in San Diego too! (Wheeee!) After months of online shopping, I finally got to go pick out a few things that I wanted :D

Everything layed out, only picked up three things,
I hope they have a Christmas Sale! *PS, I linked all the products to the site for you guys! US site though, *

First, it's the new Yuzu and Cocoa Bubbleroon!
Lush says:
"Inspired by the unusual Japanese fruit the yuzu (kind of like a Satsuma orange), this Bubbleroon has a delectable orange chocolate fragrance. It makes mountains of fluffy white bubbles and the most supremely soft bath water. With Extra Virgin coconut oil and Fair Trade Shea Butter (like all of our Bubbleroons) Yuzo and Cocoa is the crème de la crème of chocolatey and moisturizing baths. "
It smells creamy, and fruity. I thought I'd like the Rose Jam one, but I liked this better :D
From the Christmas line, it's the Superstar Bubble Bar!
Lush says :
" Truly a slice of summer in the wintertime, Superstars smell like fresh strawberries and a hint of herbal refreshment. Helen has been told she's good at making strawberry fragrances, so she made a sweet and delicious scent especially for this holiday bar. Enjoy the fragrance and feel of summertime, as angelica root oil helps soothe the mind and black pepper oil warms up chilly bodies. Now the only decision you have to make is red and yellow, or yellow and red.... "
I chose Yellow and Red! Hahaha, it smells alot like strawberry, I don't know I feel like theres a ...soda-ish note to it too ? Maybe I'm crazy! (...) I cut off a little chunk and tried it out in the sink and it created SO many bubbles and made the water so soft <3 It's kind of strong though...
Lastly from LUSH is a Dragon's Egg!
Lush says:
" As you bathe in the whirlpool of vibrant, fiery colour and inhale the refreshing sherbet scent of lemon and bergamot, you'll feel like you're up and away on the back of your own dragon. Citrus oils are known for their invigorating effect on the mind, and Dragon's Egg is no exception! Drop one of these baby dragons in the bath for a serious wake-up call on groggy mornings or before evenings out. "

It smells VERY strongly of a crisp citrus. Almost too strong, but I wanted to try it out because of the youtube demos that made it look AH-MA-ZING.

Couple of things I picked up at the F21 today! Purple infinity scarf, and a kitty mirror!

Isn't it cute! Haha you can see the top of my panda phone case!
Updates, I guess! As I said, I've been so sick this week! But the week before that, I had a piano recital! So I have a story...If you don't want to read, scroll!

*Start ramble*
So in Seventeen Magazine, they had three offers, all of which included one mini sample and one makeover. It was Benefit for Bloomingdale's, Bobbi Brown for Macy's, and Lancome for Nordstroms. I wanted to have my makeup done for the recital and I really wanted the Benefit, so I went down to Bloomingdales, but they didn't carry Benefit so I wanted to try Bobbi Brown next. I went into the Macy's and they too did not have a BB counter for me to redeem things from. Lastly, I went to Nordstroms, which DID have a Lancome, but the ladies said they were too "busy" to do my makeup...Strangely when I got there, they were sitting on the floor gossiping. Hm.
I was really upset at that point so I went back to Macy's so my mom could shop, and the lady at the Urban Decay counter offered to do my eyemakeup! It's kind of dark, but I like it! I think it makes me look mean though..
*End ramble*
My hair for that day, curls and waterfall braid!

Snowflake nails, gradient with the color For Audrey
and Today's manicure,
The blue glitter is OPI's Gone Gonzo! and the creme is CG's For Audrey.

That's it! Sorry for such a long post, but I wanted to condense everything into one post, so I can write about new things later!

If I don't update again, I want to wish all of my readers a Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays if you don't celebrate Christmas! Also, I hope everyone has a fantastic New Year!
