Ok so I took my time getting this post up but it was for a good reason. Well it is partly because I am a tad behind schedule on all the things I want to post, and the other part is because I knew this haul was BIG so it wasn’t exactly going to be a 5 minute post.

I love shopping. I love shopping in the USA even more. And even more than that I love shopping at Sephora. Ooooook I know I go on about that place a lot but trust me, it’s heaven for a girl like me, and you!

Expressing my love for Sephora

Let me start by refreshing you as to why I was in Las Vegas last month. I went for the coolest of cool expos, the BlogWorld & New Media Expo. It was awesome but I won’t waste time running through it all because you can read all about My Educational Trip to Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to have some down time so I wisely spent that by visiting the many amazing stores Las Vegas has to offer. Sephora got to see me everyday though (I was checking for new stock, OK?).

Enough rambling. Here is the loot.

I was also treated to loads of bonus gifts and samples thanks to the lovely people at Sephora. I have to say that those samples and bonus gifts are just one of the major reasons I shop at Sephora. They sure know how to treat a girl!

Keep an eye out for the impending millions of product reviews that will come out of this latest haul. But, is there anything in particular you want to see a review of ASAP? Let me know by commenting below.


I couldn’t go all the way to the US and not bring back one of my favourite products for my beautiful readers. You may remember back in September I did a post on the Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream range. I am addicted to these pots of genius and seeing as though Make Up For Ever is near impossible to purchase in Australia, I thought I would treat one of you to your very own.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in Intense Blue 20 is a great colour that can be used as a shadow or liner, and even on your cheeks if you’re daring. It is my personal favourite and I hope it will be yours too.
