HUGE Haul!

"There comes a point when you either embrace who and what you are, or condemn yourself to be miserable all your days. Other people will try to make you miserable; don't help them by doing the job yourself."

-Laurell K. Hamilton

Hello my loves!

This is a pretty big - and all over the place - haul.. From my birthday as well as an exciting surprise from yesterday!

I'll start with what I got from my parents... They overdid it this year!


I've been wanting to start juicing, making smoothies and just overall being healthier so I was crazy excited to get this NutriBullet.. I can do a review on this bad boy if you guys want me to, just leave a comment in the section below!


As if the NutriBullet wasn't enough, they surprised me with two tickets to a Sabres game... I know, my team isn't doing great this year but I love them anyways!



Keeping with the Sabres theme, I got this super cute scarf from my friend Jordan!



These were delivered on my birthday! My ex and I have gone through a lot in the past 5 years but there is so much love between us and he always surprises me on my birthday with amazing gifts.. I LOVE chocolate covered strawberries so I was happy to see these :)


We went shopping yesterday and I picked up these! Dexflex is a brand from Payless and they are super comfortable and well made. These flats are really cute and I love that the embellishments are gold.


We stopped at Hobby lobby and I got this sign, I LOVE it!


We also went to Ulta and I got some clips for doing pin curls, and a couple NYX products! I finally found a Stay Matte powder foundation in my color (they are always sold out when I go), the NYX concealer that I've been dying to try, two Butter Glosses and a matte eyeshadow in Underneath It All.. I'll be doing reviews on some of these soon!



A little birthday gift for myself! I've been needing new heeled boots so I got these from DSW. They are really comfortable, they go up to just a little below my knees and I love that they have enough room in them to put over jeans.


I feel like I'm forgetting something... But I'm pretty sure that's everything from my birthday (it was on the 12th) - all of this was over the past two weeks :)


Lastly, my surprise yesterday... My friend Amanda from Mom's Coupon Affair has been stocking up on products she wanted to give me... She says she got all of these through deals and couponing (she better have!)... She's adorable, she had everything wrapped up with cute notes on all of them... I was totally shocked at how much she gave me and I am SO incredibly thankful and blessed. I love you Amanda!!!!! xoxo


HOLY MOLY! I won't go through and show you everything, as you can see it's a ton of amazing things, but I will be doing reviews for pretty much all of these!


So there's my gigantic haul! A ton of reviews are coming soon!
