Natural Beauty Products Haul

So some of you may know that I am a Secret Shopper. Recently I had an assignment at a natural foods store and I decided to get some natural beauty goodies instead of groceries because my assignment didn't require me to make a specific purchase, I could get anything! Here is what I scored:

Alba Moisturizing Foam Shave in Mango Vanilla
Giovanni 2Chic Brazilian Keratin & Argan Oil Ultra-Sleek Conditioner
Giovanni 2Chis Brazilian Keratin & Argan Oil Blow Out Styling Mist
Mini Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap in Citrus Orange

I had tried the Alba foam shave in another scent before (I bought it on another Secret Shopping assignment at the same store!) so I am excited to try the new mango vanilla scent. I have always loved Giovanni products and I think this line is new so I am also excited to try these out. The soap I have always heard good things about and this was on clearance for a $1 so I felt I couldn't pass it up.

Have any of you guys tried out these products? Thoughts? Opinions? Let me know in a comment below! :)

CVS Haul (Fragrance Dupes, Tangle Teezer, and more!)

Recently I made quite a few trips to CVS and here are some beauty goodies I picked up:

Perfect Scents Fragrances An Impression of Daisy
Perfect Scents Fragrances An Impression of Happy
Pink Tangle Teezer
CVS Brand Eye Makup Remover
Suave Sleek Shampoo

Have you tried any of these products? What are you opinions on fragrance dupes? What about the Tangle Teezer? I had been lusting over it on Amazon after seeking UK Youtubers love theirs but it always cost like $15 plus shipping, but my CVS had them for only $10 and I had a 25% off coupon so I HAD to get one, especially because the pink was in stock!

Victoria's Secret Beauty Haul

So I had a $10 off any purchase coupon and a $10 Secret Gift Card from Victoria's Secret which sadly could not be combined so instead of buying one of those adorable silky robes I decided to buy some beauty products! I don't currently own a primer so I thought it would be fun to try the Victoria's Secret Pro Oil-Free Airbrush Fx Face Primer Spf 15. And because I used up my hand creams I went for the Moisture Luxe Hand Cream with Shea Butter in Luxurious Kiss because the scent was gorgeous and the packaging is adorable. It's going to look so cute at my desk at work! :)

Have any of you guys tried any of these Victoria's Secret Products? Have any favorites you recommend I try next? Comment below any let me know!

Fashion Dupe: Sneaker Wedges

As you guys have seen on previous posts (check out HERE, and HERE), I am obsessed with the fashion trend of sneaker wedges. I had fallen in love with a pair of $100 Steve Madden sneaker wedges but I just never could justify the price because I wasn't sure if I'd still love the trend next year. Solution? Dupe it! Just when I gave up hope that DailyLook wouldn't dupe it... their sneaker wedges started appearing in a lot of their outfits! Score! I managed to get these Street Style Sneaker Wedges for only $50! I was so excited you have no idea! And, bonus points, my boyfriend thinks they are cool AND lots of people have complemented me on them!

What do you guys think? Is $50 a good dupe for a trend that started with $300 designer shoes? Are you as excited as I am that the trend has finally trickled down to lower-end brands? Hate the trend? Comment below and let me know! I'd love to hear from you.

Little Black Bag(tm) Jewelry Haul

So last month in one of the Facebook previews posted by Little Black Bag they showed the By Phillippe Wire Infinite Love Necklace that is in my picture above on the right side. I was smitten, I had to have it. If you know me, you know that I hardly ever have passionate feelings about jewelry so you KNOW that this need would only be quenched by getting my hands on it. Low and behold, you could not start a bag with the necklace, argh! (Don't know what I mean by "starting a bag" or never heard of Little Black Bag? Check out my previous post about my first LBB HERE). So I had to open my bag with a different item and trade my way to it. It took a lot of work but I managed to do it! And I got some cute bracelets on the way too, both the Flower Wreath Cuff and the Multi-Shape Bangle Set are by A.V. Max.

What do you think? Have you scored any great deals on Little Black Bag recently? Comment below and let me know or post a link to your haul! I'd love to check it out!
