NY Haul

The week is halfway over!! I'm so excited for it to be Friday.. I'm not sure if I mentioned this before, but I will actually be leaving for NY again this Friday for a week and a half! In that week and a half, I'll just be relaxing while visiting colleges one final time! Deadlines are coming up and after these last few visits, I should have a decision made up hopefully!
In honor of my trip to NY in 2 days, I have decided to dedicate this post to my previous trip to the city! While I was in the city last month, I got a few cool items and I wanted to share them! It feels so weird thinking that it has already been a month since my trip! Looking back at my photos immediately beings up a flood of memories and feelings for me!

Aerie Bathing Suit
Similar @ Aerie
The first item I have here is an adorable bathing suit! I have to say that this bathing suit has to be my favorite item here just because I have been on the hunt for a new swimsuit for so long and never had the chance to go out and try some on! I didn't anticipate myself buying any clothes while I was out and I actually didn't want to, but I did spend a few hours on a street full of stores! As I walked into American Eagle, I expected to just do some looking around and then I would leave, but then I saw that they had an Aerie inside! I could not resist checking it out and then I saw the bikinis and before I knew it, I had several tops in my hand and I was in the dressing room!!
I tried so many different tops on just looking for the perfect fit. A lot of the cute tops looked a bit strange on me, but when I tried on this one, I knew it was right for me!

Sephora Birthday Gift 2014
From Sehpora.. sorry no link!
So I did not know this, but a few blocks away from where I was staying.. there was a SEPHORA! That store is like a girl's dream!! I walked past the sepohra several times before actually seeing it and once I did, I had to go inside to check it out! It also happened to be my birthday a few days ago which meant I was eligible for their mini "birthday surprise." I went inside to pick my gift up and inside I found a lipstick and mascara. I must say that the lipstick is in the cutest shade ever!!

Original Beauty Blender Review
From Sephora
This product was all the rave a while back among youtube gurus! I found the product to be quite interesting, but I personally didn't have a huge need for it since I never wear foundation. Sometimes I use concealer, but I really did not need this for myself. I picked this up since I saw it on sale and I knew my sister was coveting this item for the longest time! She was super excited when she saw it haha! =)

CLINIQUE Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturizer review
From Sephora
This item was also featured with a good deal which is the reason why I chose it. I also know that clinique is a high quality brand and I needed a good moisturizer at the time! One thing that I love about Sephora is the fact that they always have samples of the product out for customers to try before buying! I tried several night moisturizers in store and I found this particular one to feel the best!

weil for origins conditioning lip balm Review
From Sephora
I actually didn't anticipate getting this product at all and to be honest, I'm still not sure why I picked it up today haha.. I guess I liked the brand or something? I have yet to use the lip balm since I have so many lip balms at the moment, but from the reviews I see online, this one works very well!!

SEPHORA COLLECTION Super Nourishing Lip Balm review
From Sephora
I saw these two lip balms in a bin near the back and was curious about them! Unlike my other lip balm purchase, I actually liked this one a lot and the price was quite fair. I ended up grabbing two of them! 

Chinese Bakery Bread

 No post about NY is complete without pictures of food!! Along with the bathing suit and beauty products, I also went to a chinese bakery and brought home some of their delicious breads! I love the breads at the bakery more than the bread here! I think it's the fluffyness of the bread and the slight sweetness that capture my taste buds!! I brought 6 breads home and as you can tell, I was super anxious to eat them!

Marich Premium Chocolate

NY chocolate

NY peppermints

I also picked up some candy from the city as well haha. The first two bags of candy were spontaneous buys (haha isn't everything for me here spontaneous) They were kinda costly and I expected some delicious chocolate. The chocolate was really tasty, but not amazing haha.
The next two chocolates were samples and they were actually pretty good! They were completely solid milk chocolate, but I loved how creamy they were as they melted in my mouth!
That last candy item I got is this cute package of peppermints! This is kinda funny, but for some reason, I really though that the tin said "I Love NY" on it, but now that I look at it... it says "I Love Peppermints..." hmmm interesting! Maybe my brain was functioning at the time because I swear I say the letters NY on it! lol

Born Pretty Nail Art Water Decals Transfers Sticker
From Bornpretty
This next item I didn't get while in NY, but it did come in the mail a few days after I got home! These nail stickers were sent to me from Bornpretty. I absolutely love the nail products over at Bornpretty. They have such a wide selection at very fair prices. These stickers that I got feature an adorable puppy in various poses. I cannot wait to try them out on my nails! =)

What is your favorite item from my haul?
Did you get your birthday present from Sephora yet this year?
Have you ever tried the beauty blender?

*Since I am going to NY at the end of the week, I won't be posting for the next week and a half to 2 weeks. I'm going to take the time to relax (I really need it haha) and to try and make my college choice!* Wish me luck! =)
