I made a little trip to the mall today and picked up a few items..Nothing too crazy..just a few things. To my surprise the mall wasn't too packed with Christmas shoppers. Thank goodness! I dragged...and I mean dragged the boyfriend with me. Big mistake. He was one whiny bird. But I did treat him to lunch after at the Nordstrom Cafe' and I got my favorite meal! A cup of the tomato basil soup and the blackened salmon caesar salad. Yummm! So onto what I got.

London Sweater in Gray. I loveeee this sweater. It runs big! But that is what I like about it. It hangs off the shoulder and I am going to wear it more as a sweater dress. I will layer a longer black top underneath and pair it with black opaque ankle tights (also bought at Express today, but we all know what those look like, so I'm not posting a picture) and a pair of black leather boots.

Russian Red lipstick. I have been wanting to try this one for a while now. It is a good Holiday lipstick and a great one to do "Old Hollywood/Pin-up" looks with. I had 6 items to take "Back to Mac", so I decided to get this ls since it was "free" anyway. There are ways to tone this ls down too. You can dab a bit of white shimmery es on the center of your pout and it makes it more of a hot pink lip. You can also just dab it on and mix it with another ls. I think it will work great with See Sheer ls. You can also layer a sparkly gloss on top, which will tone down the harsh matte look if this one is a little too va-va-voom for you.
MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NW25. I usually wear NW30 when I have a bit more color on my face, but I am looking pretty pasty these days, so had to go a color down. I love this foundation. It is medium to full coverage and goes on extremely smooth.

That is it. Not the most exciting haul, but I really did get items that I know I will use and wear a lot. I might do a post on my makeup look tonight. I'm going to wear the Russian Red but as I said, tone it down with a couple of makeup tricks.

Happy Hauling dolls!


  1. Let me know how you like the makeup. You should do a review of the foundation because out of all the ones that MAC offers, the pro longwear seems to intice me the most!
    The sweater looks pretty =) I am obsessed with grey! Funny, I never liked it as a kid.

  2. I will do a review of it. I have used it before and I really like it. I lovveee the sweater! I wore it last night. I was actually going to get black but they didn't have it in my size, but I am glad I ended up with the gray since I have so much black!
