Things I’m Digging Lately – Some Lusts & Some Reality

Seriously y’all can I add like two more hours after work to my day?  I feel like I work out, get home, have dinner then magically it’s 10:30-11.  I probably should just finish all my draft posts instead of writing new ones every day that would probably be a good start right?  Anyways here are some things that have been on my radar.  I’m making that list.  When the move is officially done…’s on that’s all I have to say.

Okay not to sound like a broken record but I got these boots.  Finally.  Target I think gives Forever 21 a run for their money with taking the crown for the slowest shipping ever.  Am I just that spoiled with Amazon Prime now?  The boots arrived and I’m delighted to say I love them.  Get ready to see them on major repeat this Season.  They are comfortable and look super high end for a pretty affordable price.  The sizing has been selling out.  So like I tell you from the beginning, anything from Target online not sold in stores sells out insanely fast.  Not because I highlight it here or anything ;-) …..Oh and Target is running buy one get one 50% off sale.  I wish that was the case when I ordered because I definitely would have gotten them in brown or these ankle booties. Also these gold zip ankles booties are fabulous and so are these laced ones in the wine color.  They would look amazing with skinnies or tights and a dress!

Sam & Libby Riding Boots

This Necklace

Nothing makes me more batty then something that you have to pre-order.  I would make an exception for this because it would be so perfect with just about any outfit.  You could throw it on casually during the day or over a black dress to give it some sparkle over the holidays.  Love the length.  Also had my eye on this arrow Stella & Dot necklace piece.

Gold Tassel Necklace
These Skinny Jeans
I know I sound like a broken record with Zara but their Fall line is amazing.  These skinny jeans at first glance almost look faux leather but when they are on they aren’t shiny.  They really hug your body perfectly and have just the right amount of stretch. Naturally they aren’t online but they ran in store for 69.90.  Don’t fret Zara always runs sales.  Keep an eye on them and then get them in all the colors especially black.  For those of you wanting to try that faux leather legging look this is a good dip your toe in the water try on this.
This Reversible Work Bag
I have been on the hunt for a new work bag since my Neverfull has literally the most uncomfortable straps ever when you place anything in there heavier than a sunglass case.  This is large enough to fit my every day life travels and it is reversible to a Cognac red.  All the color combos are perfect and best part it’s under $50!  This Anne Taylor one is swoon worthy and a major Phillip Lim dupe.
Street Level Reversible Tote
This Bottle Stopper
I mean can this be anymore perfect for all things bridal?
Dapper Bottle Stopper
This fabulous minimalist clutch
Isn’t this blush color gorgeous?  When you sign up for their email lists you get 15% off.  Also love that nail cuff bracelet similar here in gold.
Privacy Clutch | Truffle
Finally some makeup to round things out.
This cream to powder multipurpose stick is an all in one highlighter and bronzer.  I swipe this where you would contour and then blend in with this brush (another obsessive fav of mine).  You can also get the brush set which is a crazy good value considering how much each one costs individually.  
The Multiple – NARS in Portofino
Finally got around to trying this concealer after Biana and Mree raved about it (btw read Mree’s makeup post it is so informative I literally wrote down about 10 things I needed to try).  It really does blow my NYX concealer out of the water.  It will be added to the list when old faithful runs out.
NARS – Radiant Concealer 
Last I finally got my hands on the new YSL foundation.  I think I may be going back to the liquid side y’all.  I’ve had too many smashed powders to cry about even though this totally does work.  I got over to Sephora at closing (aka the here take a sample and get out of here hour).  It honestly gives you complete coverage that looks airbrushed yet doesn’t feel heavy on.  The gal who put it on me was loving it so much she actually took off her foundation and put on some of this on herself.  I couldn’t agree more when she stated “it looks like your skin but airbrushed perfection“.  I have been using it for well over a week now with no breakouts.  I applied it with this brush but a beauty blender works too.  I can honestly say it lives up to it’s hype.  If you have been on the lookout for a new foundation head to Sephora or wherever is local for you  and get a sample.  Definitely check it out.  If you order online here are some of their current sample codes.
YSL Fusion Ink Foundation

Alright what things have been on your radar as of recent?  Have you tried any of these products yet?  What Fall boots have you scooped up?  Hope you are having a fab start to your week!  xoxoxo

  7. Ashley says:

    I have severe must-ship-asap complex. I get so antsy! I love the new Truffle pouches. So sleek!

  8. so i got my jeggings yesterday and THEY LIED. they’re jeans. maybe a softer version but definitely denim material. those are going straight back to the store because i want leggings that look like jeans!

    i will take a look at the zara pants; after my fancy dinner on the weekend, i realized that i don’t even have a pair of fancy pants!

    Vodka and Soda

  9. Those boots are perfect! Both of my good pairs from last year have heels/wedge on them and not sure I can rock the heels this season :/ I need to check out target’s sale! Love that wine stopper and perfect for all bridal affairs!!

  10. I love that simple clutch, and I wish I had a Zara store nearby I could shop at. I love how their fall line looks online and I really want to try stuff on!

  11. Target has been having awesome deals on bags and shoes lately! Lucky for me, the Super Tarjay is less than a mile from me :) I love the wine stop!

  12. So excited to be back in a town that has not one but 2 Zaras! Love all of the boots you posted from Target! So cute!

  13. Mree says:

And you know I LOVE that foundation!! It’s so freaking awesome!! I love that a little goes along way especially at that price. Happy Tuesday Doll! Hope you have a great day!!

  14. Joey says:

    I can’t read your posts anymore. They’re going to get me in trouble :) I’m seriously loving all of those things (especially those skinnies and that bottle stopper)! <3

  15. Love these posts! I hate it when people come into the store at like 7:55.. It’s like we close in 5 minutes.. Haha. But if it were you, I’d let you in! :-) Anyway…Those boots are so cute, love that necklace, and those skinny jeans from Zara too. I’m impressed with Target’s shoes too, they don’t look cheap, and they’re so cute! I had that NARS stick in that color and loved it. I want to try that concealer sometime, and yeah that YSL foundation, would love to try that too.

  16. Aimee Rose says:

    Love those boots, the gold zipper, perfect! That reversible bag is awesome, especially for the fall. And a great concealer, just what I always need! I am with you, I desperately need 2 more hours in my day to feel like I can even come close to getting everything done that I need!

  17. i neeeeeed that wine stopper. oh my perfect!! :) and i love me some target shoes. i swear it’s a gold mine! the fact the you mentioned the holiday’s in this post just got me so excited!

  18. Rebecca Jo says:

    How cute is that bottle stopper!!! That would be a great bridal shower present!

  19. I swear by anything Nars and I use the multiple in Orgasm every day…. love it!!!

  20. P!nky says:

    Fun finds, love those boots! I need to try Zara, I’ve never been ;)

  21. Your posts are NO good for my wallet! I feel like I really need that tote, it’s pretty essential to my Fall look.
    Those boots were also such a find, they look amazing and definitely high end xo

  22. I have been eyeballing boots on the target website, but I feel like their shoes are hit or miss so I haven’t wanted to get any. Now, I’m going to go blow my wad on their sale :)

  23. goodbye, I’m going to target to get those boots.

  24. Meagan says:

    That bottle stopper is TOO cute, and I looooove that blush clutch. So pretty!!

  25. k but really target needs to stop eating my paycheque

  26. I bought a pair of boots two years ago from Target and they’ve held up surprisingly well! It’s also nice to have a “cheaper” pair if you’re going out and doing something messy so you don’t have to worry about ruining your nice ones :)

  27. Erin LFF says:

    That bottle stopper is so so cute! I wish I knew a bride-to-be I could buy it for ;) Also- I have been obsessed w/ that gold tassel necklace and keep seeing it everywhere. I might just have to suck it up and pay for it!

  28. Loving those boots and the clutch! Oh man I need a spending freeze!!

  29. Miche says:

    I’ve been obsessed with reversible bags since I saw one in Madewell a few months ago (definitely coulndt afford it), under 50 i could do though!
    Miche from Buttons and Birdcages

  30. A reversible bag is genius! Don’t tell me the Neverfull is painful, I want one as my diaper bag! No I’m not pregnant just getting way ahead of myself!

  31. Running home from work to snag my husband’s Target gift card and order up some boots of my own! So need black boots this year so thank you for the oh-so generous reminder :)

  32. Those boots look like beauties! I wish Target Canada had shopping online, but I’ll have to check the store next time I’m in to see if they sell them here.

  33. I think I’m going to have to order those riding boots! I’m in absolute love with the gold zipper. Also the Nars multiple is like an absolute godsend, you can literally use it for anything. Multiple products in one tube? Sold especially for early morning barre days. I’m in the market for a new foundation, I’ll have to try the YSL one next time I’m in Sephora because I’m all about that liquid life.


  34. This is such an awesome round-up of products that you are loving! Since we are heading to Vegas tomorrow, I plan to do some serious vacation shopping (hopefully, if the hubs lets me). I may have to stop into Sephora to try out that foundation!

  35. Jen says:

    Girl you are AMAZING at finding high-quality looking finds for less! Teach me your ways!

    I have the Nars matte multiple and I can’t figure out if I love it or hate it….I’d love to know how you apply it! I’m a long-time lover of NARS’ concealer as well.

    xo, Jen

  36. Stacy G says:

    Obsessed with the boots! I really want them. Love the pants so much too. Will keep my eye out for a sale. XO

  37. alyssa says:

    I’m always disappointed by the shoe selection in-store at Target, which makes me sad because I love that place more than pretty much anywhere else on earth. But I don’t know why I never think to check online. I desperately need a new pair of boots this year and I think I’ve looked pretty much everywhere EXCEPT Guess what I’m going to now be doing for the rest of my workday?? :)

  38. Meghan says:

    You’re a rock star when it comes to you life. You seriously are the busiest person and I can’t believe you don’t schedule your posts! Your picks are awesome, as usual. Definitely love the boots and the Nars picks!

  39. woah, i’m LOVING the ann taylor pebbled tote.. i don’t need it but i want it!

  40. Those boots!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I need to check out their shoes, I haven’t in awhile. Also, I noticed my faux leather leggings restocked at my store last weekend but going quickly again. Cartwheel has 10% off their leggings right now too. Say whaaa?!?!

    I might have to try that foundation. It sounds amazing!

  41. Christina says:

    that bottle stopper is the cutest!!! i can’t wait until fun pants go on sale, haha!

  42. I just got that exact tote for the same readon, travel and for only $25.00!!!!!!! I got mins marked down from $110.00 at G.H. Bass & CO!

  43. I love all of these picks! Those black bookts are amazing and that bottle topper is so cute!!!

  44. those boots!!! I have a hard time finding black boots that don’t look like I got them from Santa’s closet, those are perfect!

  45. I’m so glad it’s not just me that thinks Target and F21 have the absolute slowest shipping ever… if I got into my car and drove to their headquarters myself to pick up my shipment I’d still get back here quicker :[P

  46. I’ve watched so many videos on that new foundation and it sounds sooo nice! I don’t think it would work so great for my skin type, but if it did I would love to try it out! And those boots are from Target?! WHAT? And buy 1 get 1 50% off… soo tempting, the slow shipping would drive me crazy but it might be worth it if the stores are sold out… so many decisions! LOVE these posts!

  47. MarlaJan says:

    Now that summer is over, I’ll be changing up my makeup routine. I was using It Cosmetics luminating powder foundation, but I’m thinking of trying there CC cream, i read it has amazing coverage and it’s SPF 50. Def gonna head over to Sephora for a sample os the YSL.

  48. Seriously, I want all of these items. That tote?? $48?? That’s a STEAL!
    I hope you bought that bottle opener. That is so adorable! Perfect for a bride ;)

  49. Sigh. I love my NYX concealer put have been wanting to try the Nars because so many people have been raving about it. Guess I’m going to have to bite the bullet. And check out the YSL also.

  50. Kay R. says:

    Oh man those skinnies are amazing!! so CUTE! I love that tote and I have to check but i think that my mum actually purchased that while in the US!
