Here's a photo collection of some purchases I've made recently. I was in the market for a new moisturizer and used some samples I had lying around of the Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Moisturizer. It ended up working really well for me. The $40 price tag isn't ideal, but my skin has had a real turnaround since I've started using it. If you have combination skin that is rather acne prone with tricky dehydration issues, I'd recommend trying this out. Or, if you've got that skin type and have a cheaper alternative to share, I'd love to hear it!
I also went to H&M and used a gift card I had left over from Christmas. I picked up some high waisted skinny pants. They're quite a stretchy denim which is what I need in a pair of skinny jeans. I also got a long knit cardigan. It isn't exactly midi length, but it does go past my butt and that's all I really wanted. It's quite a bit thinner than I was originally looking for, but it was only around $12, so that's to be expected. The last thing from H&M was an orange change purse/wallet. I needed a smaller wallet to use in my tiny crossbody purse and this was only $3 in the sale section.
Lastly, on a whim, I purchased the Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands. I'm pretty sure I watched Stephanie/SoothingSista's video the same day I purchased this. She featured it in her 2014 favorites and I guess I was really obsessed with it because I NEVER buy anything that quickly after seeing it in a blog or video. I guess I shouldn't continue with that impulsive streak because this lip product ended up being a bit of a downer for me. It's pretty much the EXACT same color as my lips and not even in a "my lips but better" kind of way. Oh well...you win some, you lose some.
