Huge Collective Haul

As I said in the video there was actually a few things I forgot to show so I figured instead of just doing another haul I put take a picture and list them here.

d:fi beach bum - Ulta $11.99
Nourish Follicle Stimulator - $18.95
Revlon Frost & Glow - Wal-Mart (I don't remember the price)

Without totally boring you I figured I should just quickly talk about each product.  
- The beach bum spray is a texturizing spray and I used it in my hair in my "Back-to-School 2011 - Study Tips & More" which you can check out by clicking here.  Overall it is a nice spray, a little drying but it adds a nice "beachy" texture and wave to your hair.
- The Follicle Stimulator is a repurchase, I first showed it in a video months ago and you can watch that by clicking here and I also showed it in one of my favorites and I can not remember which one now, sorry! But I think it is great to speed up your hair growth just as long as you use it constantly.
- I have been talking about wanting to go blonde for a while now and I finally did it! I am so pleased with my hair color and I used the Revlon Frost & Glow and I could not be happier with the results.  I was watching MakeupbyMel's video and she said she used this brand and I tweeted her asking if that was how she got her hair that blonde and she tweeted me back saying yes so I knew I had to pick it up!  I just did it in my hair last night and posted a video, watch that here :P , talking about it on my vlog channel, honeyflower3onthego.  I will do a full video on my beauty channel so keep an eye out for that.
- I used a few different kinds of blonde shampoos and this is another great one it gradually lightens your hair.  I know I just was talking about how much I love the shimmer lights one but I will be using both they just do different things and I plan on doing a video all about blonde shampoos and which ones are best for what.
- I can not remember if I showed this mascara is a video saying I bought it so i figured I would just throw it in this video.  This is the only makeup item I have bought in a LONG time, I am really happy with my makeup collection and do not plan on buying anything new for quite sometime.  I want to use what I have and I have quite a lot.  I only plan on buying foundation because I always need that and currently I am using Isa's foundation I do not have one of my own.

Shopping List

I love to shop but honestly I do not shop that much and I usually only buy things when I really really need or want it.  I wanted to make a shopping list of realistic items I want to buy in the near future, these products are not anything huge but just little things I really like.

My favorite color and the reason I NEED this is because of "Nude Beach" hahaha weird name but beautiful color.  However, I do not need any more eye shadows!! I have more then I could ever use so I will be waiting on this palette.  

I need a new set because I have had my pair since November 2010!! I can not believe they have lasted this long but I did have to cut them 2 times and they are pretty short now :\ I just really want a new set but since I do not know what I want to do with my hair color I almost do not want to invest in a super expensive pair.  I think I might get an inexpensive pair from Sally Beauty Supply before I order a set from HeadKandy, which is my dream hair extensions.  The only downside to the pair from Sally's is that you have to sew on your own clips but I think this set will match my hair and I do not have to dye them like the pair I have now.

Toms - $54.00

I want a few new pairs! I love the cheetah ones and I just saw them as soon as I went on the web site to find the link to the glitter ones.  Toms are so comfortable and stylish and I still think it is cool that they donate a pair to child.  It sounds dumb but I alway love them I see people wearing them haha.

Sam Edelman.... my FAV (other than toms haha) shoe designer.  His shoes are amazing and beautiful and unique and awesome.  Isa wanted to buy me Tory Burch flats for my birthday because I have always wanted those but she said if I wanted she would get me these for my birthday if I want them instead.

I thought my list was way way longer but I might make a part 2 because I do not know what else I wanted haha, maybe it is a good thing ;)
