Current Indulgence: Glint & Gleam

I am obsessed. I have been stalking this website for quite some time and finally took the plunge and made a few purchases! Through the Shop Lately website, they have certain boutiques that cater to different tastes and types of accessories you’re interested in. The one I found that I am completely head over heels for is Glint & Gleam, an affordable very trendy boutique that has tons of styles of jewelry that cater to many likings.

I was first intrigued by their pieces from seeing people like Amy from Vagabond Youth and Sarah from Sarah Hawkinson show their pick ups from the site as well as different stylings with them.

I placed two orders on separate occassions and got them two days after I placed the order–which is amazing! Don’t you just love when your packages ship quickly?

Anyhow, here is a video of the things I picked up:

And here are some detailed shots of the pieces as well:

I am such a sucker for cute packaging as well as good quality and Glint & Gleam does just that: delivers great quality items in cute packaging–AND did I mention they’re affordable?! Two thumbs up!

What do you guys think? Is this something you guys are interested in? Did you see anything you liked from my haul or their site? Please share!

Then you just fill out the necessary information, click submit and voila! They should send you the coupon in your email asap and you’re ready to save and spend!

I just received my coupon and it expires 8/26/2012, which is 3 days from now.

I’ve heard that this doesn’t work in conjunction to the sale products going on right now, so be sure and check with your cashier if it does or doesn’t apply to your purchase (as it has no restrictions on the fine print).

Good luck, and hope you find some great deals!

IMATS LA 2012 Haul

I hope you guys aren’t tired of hearing about IMATS! Because I know I’m not. I feel like since last week, I’ve been so inspired and just enamored by everyone’s beauty and passion for makeup, it has really sunk in that the makeup industry is somewhere I want to be a part of one day. It sounds so superficial to some people, but really, it’s about the confidence and the added spunk that these tools we use can add to us which can easily brighten up anyone’s day, including our own! From the funky, bright colors to the drama and darkness, the possibilities are endless! Not to mention the special effects. 

Anyway, moving on. Our long awaited haul! This was so exciting, we filmed it as soon as we got back to our hotel room because we wanted to play with our new goodies ^_^ Hope you all enjoy!

We got everything we wanted, plus more! 

If you went to IMATS and have some awesome goodies you’d like to share with us, or even would like to hear/see a review of the things we’ve gotten, please let us know! 

XOXO Alyssa
