Haul: After Christmas Shopping

For Christmas I got some gift cards and cash and I thought I would share with you the beauty related items that I picked up while doing some after Christmas shopping.

I have one of the E.L.F eye lash curlers and it is the best one I have ever used, well it's getting a little worn and not working like it used too, so I went to Target and was going to pick up a new one plus a few backups, they only had one! I'm disappointed with it too, it does not work right at all! Glad it was only $1.00, but now I'm stuck without a good curler.
I love NYC top coat, it leaves my nails super shiny so I picked up another bottle of it, as I am getting low on my current one.
I have been on the look out for a good base coat for my nails. I've been using Strong Adhesion base coat by China Glaze, but it is getting empty. I really like the China Glaze, but I wanted something a little less expensive. I also have a problem with China Glaze polishes getting really thick after I have used them for a while. Anyone else have that problem? I found one by Sally Hansen, it's a base coat and a top coat, I already have a favorite top coat, as you seen above, but I'll see how well it works. It was a couple dollars cheaper than the China Glaze.

I also picked up a set of scrunchies. I usually pull my hair back when I'm at home and I thought these would be easier on my hair, than the ties I'm currently using.
I have also been wanting to try some Moroccan oil on my hair, so I picked up some Garnier Fructis Moroccan Sleek oil treatment.

I've been eyeing this palette from Hard Candy for months now! Every time I would go shopping at my local Walmart I would pass up buying it LOL, but now I have it and am super excited about it!
I also bought a few non beauty products that I'm excited about! I got a small candle warmer to use with my Bath & Body Works candles that I picked up at their semi annual sale. I also picked up this super cute angel soap dispenser from the Christmas clearance section in Walmart. The last non-beauty item is the one I am the most excited about. I collect unique 'piggy' banks and I had seen these in December 2011 and really liked them but passed up the opportunity to buy one. I've seen them in Walmart for most of 2012 and finally decided, I'm gonna get myself one, an actually piggy bank!

Did you do any after Christmas shopping? What did you purchase?

  3. Nice haul, let me know how you like the Garnier Moroccan oil, I have been using it for over 3 months now, and it did wonders for my hair. I use it right after I shower, while my hair still wet. I tried to use it on dry hair but made my hair oily. I am very curious to know how it works for you.

    1. Thanks Roxana! I will definitely let you know how I like the Moroccan Oil. I can tell you what little I've used it, I like it thus far :)
