A Lush-ious Haul; Toothy Tabs and Toner.

After the third Chou Chou I Love You Toothy Tab, I was hooked. I am demonstrating this by the haul I made at +Westfield Valley Fair +LUSH Cosmetics North America where I added Atomic, Sparkle and Breath of God in addition to Tea Tree Water spray toner. If you know me, you know I adore facial mists and this is one is already becoming my new fave.

First up, Sparkle.
Sweet vanilla flavor with a hint of Sicilian lemon and grapefruit.
While Sparkle is this location's #1 seller, I find the black pepper aftertaste too overpowering and a turn off. I won't repurchase this flavour. $4.95. Vegan

Jawbone's Jambox; a C. Wonder Store score.

Of all the things I could have purchased at +C. Wonder , I chose the Jawbone JAMBOX in Black Diamond. I know, so random but it was such a good deal! Retailing at C.Wonder for $199 it was on sale, in store, for $159.99. During the +Santana Row party, hosted by +Bay Area Fashionista, their clearance tech were an additional 50% off. This bonus discount brought the Wireless Bluetooth Speaker to $80 out of pocket, a 60% savings off of full price. It came with everything I needed for safe keeping and travel: a protective case, 3.5mm stereo and USB cables plus an AC charger. The sound is crystal clear and rich in base. I'm pretty happy with my purchase and the BF gives it a thumbs up, too. Another bonus.

Airy Fairy by Butter London's Lolly Brights.

It's a touch lighter than my Fiat and just as amazing. Franci and I had the pleasure of purchasing a few different lacquers from the Butter London Lolly Brights collection ahead of the official launch. My second in this haul is Airy Fairy, a blue-lover's dream come true. While it is described as a bright turquoise flaring shimmers in gel-like base, it is really a true blue. This lacquer covers completely in 2 quick drying coats, I used 3 so it was the same opacity as the bottle.

Click to enlarge for detail.
Apply Airy Fairy thinly, too much product and your finished nail could cure with visible micro-bubbles. It levels easily and translates from bottle to nail perfectly. This shade is delicious and I am already thinking of 4th of July looks with this nail polish as the base. It was long lasting  - 4 days before it chipped - and easy to remove. Don't let the micro shimmer scare you off, you do not need to soak or foil-remove this formula. I rate Airy Fairy a coveted 5 out of 5 stars. I highly recommend the Lolly Brights line and I would even replenish this lacquer.

Rewarding myself at Victoria's Secret.

What is a girl to do when she has a zillion Victoria's Secret coupons? I take a field trip to Valley Fair and make a huge haul, fashionCHICsta style! My intention was to purchase 1 bra and body mist but I ended up with 3 bras, 4 pairs of panties and a body mist!

See, my plan shifted after I received an email alerting me to a deep discount on the Lacie panties, starting the next day. It was an amazing deal, originally retailing for $14.50 each I was able to grab 3 for $5 each. I chose Liberty Lane Floral, Pink Lace Up Back, Orange Mesh Cross Dye Dot. All Hiphugger style.

A Cheeky Victoria's Secret Haul.

I was semi tempted to make a Victoria's Secret purchase this morning when my email alerted me to a bonus Secret Reward card but I held off. Then LikeACoupon shared a code and suggestions to score $10 off a bra and a free panty so I pounced! I'm awaiting $75.50 in treasures for only $34.49. Holla!!

Rose Lace Plunge Bra

This bra was the suggested purchase. From the Pink collection it retails for $24.50 and the $10 off promo brought it down to $14.50.

Featuring a deep plunge and pretty allover lace. Softly lined for no-show coverage.

I chose Seafoam, pictured, it's super pretty.

C. Wonder, GAP and Sephora; A BeautyFull Haul.

After I spotted +Bay Area Fashionista was hosting a party at +C. Wonder on +Santana Row, I started to follow their Twitter and BAM! 2 days later, they announced a 40% everything sale! You know me, I headed over straight away and found my dream sweater! This is going to go perfectly with the black and white striped Mossimo skirt I scored at +Target. Retailing for $88 the 40% off brought it to $52.80 and I found an additional 25% off code on +RetailMeNot saving another $13.20 bringing my final cost to $39.60! Holla!

Pharmaca; A 7 item Natural Beauty Haul.

It always starts off so innocently, doesn't it? I ran to GAP to exchange a pair of jeans and as I was walking to my car I spotted Pharmaca. Something told me I would find my favourite natural beauty products and my gut was right. My wallet wishes I was wrong!

A Costco Beauty Haul of YSL, EOS and Honest.

I headed to Costco to see if I could score Jenna Hipp's second set of nail polish... Set 2 was not available but that's ok, I scored some other pretty amazing deals instead!

My opinions of The Honest Company seemed simple: They made stuff for babies. Wellll yes but there are adult appropriate things too, like Honest Shampoo & Body Wash in Sweet Vanilla Orange. The scent is very light and natural, for me it is barely detectible. There is no skimping in quality here, the vegan formula is thick and requires no more product than you would normally use. It rinses cleanly and leaves my skin very soft thanks to jojoba and coconut oils. Costco Members can purchase a special 2 pack of
17oz (500mL) bottles - valued at $40 - for only $14.99.

A Coach + Swarovski bangle haul.

How darling is this trio of slender bracelets? From Coach they feature Swarovski crystals hand-set in signature snapheads. Retailing for $98, I discovered the sparkly set in the Gilroy Outlet for $29! While this exact set is no longer available, click here to purchase a similar trio. xoxo •Nancy-Lee
