    I’m with you on the buying clothes…I only shop for cheap clothes, and only like twice a year.

    Philosophy Purity cleanser is seriously a must-try. I really love it because it’s gentle, feels good, smells good (like eucalyptus), and really gets the job done.

    • Hi Heather,

      Glad I’m not alone! I just can’t get into pricey clothes. I mean, I’ll drool over clothes of all kinds – when I window shop, I don’t price discriminate! And shoes, well, I’ll spend decent money on it, but going over $100 is hard. I don’t do that so much since I have forty pairs of heels collecting dust!

      I didn’t end up with Philosophy’s Purity, but hey, the sale continues for another two weeks, LOL.

    • Hi Zsofi,

      That’s definitely me, too! Oh, nice 😀 I haven’t bought makeup from H&M before. I don’t even know if I’ve seen it at my H&Ms before, lol!

  3. my computer is tired of refreshing the nordstroms account page while i check for the 1,000th time if my color forms goodies have shipped yet :(

    I picked up my MAC order and that’s all I came home with.
    I was personally unimpressed.

    • Hi Aprilrobin,

      You know, I wasn’t totally psyched over the shoes this year! Normally, I am DROOLING. That’s probably a good thing, though, for me, that it wasn’t impressive, LOL.

    hey chris, i was shopping online at sephora just now and ran across the bliss youth as we know it collection, do u have any experience wiuth these products? im 22 and saw a wrinkle under my eye, and said to myself i dealt with acne for half of my life im not dealing with wrinkles for the other half.

    • Hi Jess,

      I have tried a product or two, but not long term, so I can’t testify to the results. I know what you mean, though – spotted some wrinkling under my eyes (and promptly went NO, WTFUDGE!), ugh.

    The Hillsdale Nordstrom was crazy! However, I was able to get out in one piece with my Colour Forms goodies. =D

  7. LaQuesta

    How long is this collection available? I couldn’t get there today.

  8. You really should try Purity Made Simple! I like it quite a bit, though it might not be good for oily skin types. It’s very moisturizing. :)

    clothes shopping 2 or 3 times a year?? im jealous…i try to cut down to once every 2 weeks. im horrible
    plus i need my MAC on top of that! but definitely clothes and accessories way more

    • Zsofi

      wow Kirsten,You really need Your new dose of clothes very often 😀
      I try to be more stylish all the time,but again and again i end up spending on MAC :-)
      You know no sizes in eyeshadow :-DDDDDDDDD
      much more easier to try on :-DDDDDD

    • Hi Kirsten,

      LOL! Gosh, your poor bank account :)

      I’m such a simple girl, that’s probably why, when it comes to clothes. In the summer, I wear tank tops and cropped jeans. In the winter, sweaters tops and jeans!

    Hi Christine! I’m totally skipping the Nordies sale, but wanted to let you know that I’ve been able to swatch Shu Uemura Fall. Here are the swatches and my thoughts:


  12. I wish I would spend less on clothes/shoes all year. It was a zoo yesterday so I didn;t go up to see the clothes yet! I bought a pair of Sofft Mary janes that are sooo comfy! 66.90 reg 99.95!

    • Hi Diann,

      LOL! It’s really only the shoe department that you have to get to EARLY. I’ve found most of the clothes are still available over the remainder of the sale!
