Monthly Haul - iPhone 6, Naked Flushed, Alex and Ani Bracelets & More!

Hello beautiesssss  

"Have the maturity to know sometimes silence is more powerful than having the last word"

This month I have just been shopping a lot more than usual lately and I think it is mainly because I am attempting to prepare my wardrobe for the fall season as much as possible. 

To be honest, I have been a lip gloss gal for as long as I can remember. I rarely ever wear lipsticks but lately I have been craving to splurge on the perfect red and berry lipstick. However, since I can consider myself a lipstick rookie, I wanted to try out an affordable version of what I was looking for. These balm stains from Wet and Wild have been a great start for me. They're super moisturizing and quite long lasting, which is surprising considering these are about $2 each! That pink lipgloss from Artistry is awesome! It has a mirror on the side and it lights up which can be really convenient at times.
Also, the first official Nordstrom just recently debuted in my city and I am so in love!!! I love everything about the store and everything they have in it. I wanted to buy everything but I settled for just purchasing these Alex and Ani bracelets for now. I purchased my first bracelets from Alex and Ani earlier this summer in Vegas and I loved them so much I did not even hesitate to buy more. 

This leather jacket from H&M is my new obsession! I found a leather jacket from Zara a few months ago that I absolutely fell in love with. However, I did not purchase it then and when I returned for them they were no longer available. You can imagine my heart break. Although, my prayers were answered when I found this jacket from H&M because it is so similar to the one from Zara and fraction of the price! (not available online, but similar here)
The black floral mini skirt is from Forever 21. I am posting an outfit of the day featuring this skirt soon. (not available online, similar here, and here)

The black crop top is also from Forever 21. It has a super cute lace detailing panelling on the side, and it looks adorable. 

Jessica Simpson's perfume in Vintage Bloom smells so feminine and floral, which is definitely my style. Although, its not my favourite perfume ever, it is nice and I'm glad I tried it out. 

This Naked Flushed palette by Urban Decay is sooooooo amazing! I have been using it everyday since I got it. And it has a special place to my heart because my boyfriend surprised me with it for absolutely no reason! I do not know what made him get it for me but I'm so happy and thankful he did :)

I have been hearing a lot about this new Garnier Texturizing and Teased Spray so I decided to pick it up for myself. I have yet to still try it out and will definitely keep you updated. I have insanely flat hair, so I am always on the hunt for a great texturizing and teasing spray. 

This Loreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara is a re-purchase because I ran out of my old one. That's when you know I truly love something. 

Last, but certainly not least. . . the iPhone 6! It was a complete impulse buy. I was in need of an upgrade because I was using the iPhone 4 which was starting to get so old and slow. However, I was not planning on purchasing the iPhone 6 on the day it was released because I just knew it would be crazy lines. However, while I was shopping with my girlfriend that Friday I walked past Rogers and I walked in with just hopes that I could see a display of it. However, they told me that they did not have it in display but they did have it in stock in gold, which was exactly what I wanted! So there it was. I bought it right there and then and I am so in love. PS I captured most of these pictures with the iPhone 6 so you can see how amazing the camera quality is. 

Thanks for reading & I hope you enjoyed!
