    I hope pre-haul is OK! I’m on my way to Freehold Mall in NJ now and I have Nordstroms and Sephora on my check list!

    Sephora to pick my perfume from the perfume deluxe sampler. Still deciding between Dior Hypnotic Poison or Pucci Miss Pucci, and Nordstrom to get Deborah Lippmann’s new Glitter In the Air polish! Ooh, I hope they have it…
    Sadly, the Borders there is closing so I’ll browse there too and make use of the sales.

    Then of course end the shopping with a yummy lunch at Cheesecake Factory. It’s really awful weather here too but that just means less crowds at the mall!

    Good luck with your studies!

  26. Rita

    Haul: Two weeks ago I told that I managed to grab a Trip: Warm Eye Shadows Palette (2010). This week I got the other palette, Trip: Cool Eye Shadows. This is not for me though. I will give it to my mother, or sell it, is she’s not interested.
    Today I went to a local department store to check out some lipstick, because I had a small gift card. I remembered Christine raving about Guerlain Gems Rouge G Lipstick, so I checked it out. It is a beautiful goldy rosy coral, so I took it. It is supposed to be LE, but there were at least 4 of them there, another department store didn’t have it.
    Gems is the last beauty product I have used.
