Remember September

September is the month I always end up growing up; maturing. You'd think I'd be "growing up" in March but I can hardly explain what it is. Before I blog about nonsense, I want to remind everyone that September isn't the month to bicker and complain about our petty issues with the weather and homework. We need to be thankful for all that we have, right now. I'm sorry if I sound a little depressed but after my little vacation with my family, I came home to a nasty surprise. Not every ending to every story or day is perfect but one can dream.
So about my vacation - I took a two day trip to Seattle with my parents & some other family to shop/sight-see. To be honest, there wasn't much sight-seeing but a lot more shopping! Infact, I spent a fair amount more than my parents. I ran to two different Urban Outfitter's to find my precious Deena & Ozzy Treaded Lace-Up Boots in Tan. I ended up finding buying a pair in black the first day & found a pair in tan the next day. I kept them both because.. I'm crazy! I also bought a BDG Primary Satchel in Brown (to match the boots!) which is a affordable alternative for the Cambridge Satchel Company Briefcase. My mom, for some strange reason, was extremly chipper regardless of how grumpy I was... she really spoiled me. Even my dad was being nice but that's because he didn't know my mom bought me more make-up at Sephora. Just an FYI, my mom RARELY buys me anything at Sephora. The last time she bought me something from Sephora was in May of 2009. All my other purchases are from gift cards!
Before I lose your attention, here are non-artistic pictures:

Everything I bought during this trip was in preparation of FALL. I keep almost all of the clothing I buy, even if it grows out of style or season. I like to wear my moneys worth! This year, I'll enjoy experimenting with dark lips and nails. I've also bought a new white coat for the FALL & that's going to really make me stand out. No more dark coats, dark jeans, ankle boots!
I could really do without the make-up though... I have too much. I'm considering selling on Craigslist too. Anyone think I should post the ad links to my blog??
I went to the Cosmetic Company Outlet at the Seattle Premium Outlet too. I really should have bought more there & skipped Sephora. I have no idea what I was thinking. It was my first time going to a CCO & I only walked out with a MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner. It's odd because I'm not much of a lip person either... There's always a first for everything but I don't think I'll be buying MAC Tinted Lip Conditioners in the future. Even for $11.75 (USD), this is just eh for me.

At Sephora, I bought the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden and...... Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Rude. The Illamasqua is by far my favorite cosmetic purchase from this trip! Illamasqua is still unavailable in Canada as far as I know. I don't know why because their Cream Blusher is amazing! I almost don't want to use it because it's so beautiful!
(Sorry no pictures for this!)

And before I take my leave, I declare Uwajimaya as the best & closest Japanese Supermarket to Vancouver, B.C. that carries some of the most amazing KOBE Beef and... Japanese cosmetics. I bought the Essential Nuance Airy shampoo & treatment there for $30 altogether. I couldn't find the conditioner.. ah well, I find treatments & condtioners are one in the same. My hair is quite soft and light after a week of using the shampoo but I'm on the fence about the salon-esque scent. We'll see if it helps my dandruff and color damage from Palty.
P.S. I dyed my hair again (even though I made an oath not to..). Prettia is finally being sold at the T&T Supermarket so I got a box in *something* black. It's literally a jet black; think geisha doll black. If you're interested, it's on sale for $13.99 but the original retail price is $16.99. I think I'm going to stock up on 2 boxes for my parent's before the sale ends.
I swear that ONE box is good enough for anyone will hair that reaches the small of their back.
Well that's all for today, I hope you enjoyed my super long picture! It had plenty of pictures, no??
