E.L.F Makeup, Bows, & Zebra

Unisa Bow Sandals (Marshalls)
I've been looking everywhere for the Steve Madden Bow Sandals (or a good dupe) but this is all I've found so far. They are still adorable and they are pretty comfortable too.

Ionika Paddle Brush (Marshalls)Great, gentle brush for long hair

I was pleasantly surprised to see such a big selection of E.L.F products at Target today. I picked up a few things to try out. I wish they had more brushes in stock but it seems like everything was picked through so I'll have to keep checking.
 E.L.F Eyelid Primer (7501 Sheer)

 E.L.F Studio Makeup Mist & Set
E.L.F Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal

Stay tuned for reviews!

Blog Cleaning in Progress!

I decided it was time to do a little cleaning on here. So, over the next couple of days you may notice some changes on my blog, mostly involving the layout. I have been in a bit of a blogging rut lately, hence the lack of posts. I'm hoping that my revamping will bring me some inspiration.

I know I said in a previous post, that I was going to break up the wedding into 3 sections and I still have 2 left to post. Do you want to see them or are you all weddinged out by now? I know that I've lost a few readers due to the influx of wedding related posts so I want to get an idea of what my lovely readers would like to see more of.

Do you want to see more OOTD's, makeup/beauty reviews, hauls, home decorating, personal (wedding, upcoming trip to Italy, etc.), or something else?

Strawberry's and a little thrifting

Some of my recent purchases from Strawberry's:
I thought this headband would be good for taming the crazy hair that I'm probably going to have in Italy. I'm not too sure how the my hair is going to mix with the elements and the hustle and bustle of traveling.

I picked up this cute summer scarf, again with Italy in mind. I thought it would be smart to wear when we visit religious sites. Your shoulders and knees have to be covered in order to enter these sites but it's going to be scorching hot so I'm just planning ahead.
I've been looking for a plain woven brown belt like this for a while now. I'm so happy I finally found one!
This shirt looks like crap on the hanger but on, cinched with a belt it's a really cute off the shoulder top. My husband looked at me like I was crazy when he saw it. He told me I could just wear one of his t-shirts because it's about the same size.

There's a high-end consignment shop that I like to visit every once in a while. I got some great deals during this trip.

Coach sneakers for only $20 (marked down form $40, retailed for $98)!
Normally, I wouldn't buy shoes second hand but it doesn't even look like they were ever worn!
Abercrombie & Fitch tank top: $3.00
Abercrombie & Fitch tank top: $3.00

Don't you love thrift shopping?!

Victoria's Secret Semi Annual Sale -fail

As many of you know, the same started Tuesday but I couldn't get to the mall until today, so this is all I ended up with. I was pretty disappointed. I was hoping to get some yoga or sweat pants and t-shirts but I got some makeup and lotion instead.
I'm going to try out VS mascara for the first time.
I got "Indiglow" (a drak blue) and "Violight" (a dark purple).
Wet/Dry eyeshadow in "Plum Crazy"

Did you have any luck at the sale??
