Black is the new black.

So I spent a little money at work this week.

I've mentioned my love for the Lindsay-fit pants before, and I picked up these little beauties, which fit me PERFECTLY and broke in exactly the right place (with heels) over my cute new pumps. The pants are a lovely wool crepe and have the most beautiful drape. The pumps are in black rather than bordeaux, though I considered buying both because the toe looks divine under my pants.

I picked up this sweater in black rather than honey. You can't really see the adorable detailing around the neck, but it's very elegant! I also picked up this one in black as well.

I was stunned to see how good I look in head-to-toe black. So I am trying to limit myself for the next few weeks/months to buying only black and assembling a wardrobe of classic black pieces.

Passing through!

I know, I've been a bad, bad girl. I tantalize you with my product reviews, I insist you buy the products...and then I disappear.
Sorry, gals, but I've been workin' hard for the money, and haven't been spending too much of it. (At least not on anything fun.) But I did pick up two fabulous items from Ulta yesterday and would like to inform you that they are having a MASSIVE clearance and I will be returning there on Tuesday to relieve them of some of their merchandise.

~Maybelline Shiny-licious gloss in Sugar Plum-- love this! I've been obsessing over buying a Plum lipstick (and still plan to purchase Clinique's new Colour Surge in Perfectly Plum) but picked this up last night. It's a heavy, sticky gloss with just enough color for those days when you don't want a heavy lip but still want to look "finished." When you first put it on, it smells like peppermint and tingles a bit, and settles into a smooth, thick gloss that lasts a while (as long as you don't eat.) The color would look good on anyone, and I plan to purchase another!

~Freeman "Beautiful Face" Blueberries and Champagne Peel-Off Mask-- I am now obsessed with peel-off products. It feels so strangely good! This one smells yummy and is really gentle, and definitely makes my face feel softer, but doesn't appear to live up to its promise of unclogging my pores. Oh, well, I still get the softness and the odd thrill of peeling it all off, so never fear! I noticed yesterday that Queen Helene had a peel-off masque and I will probably be picking that up to add to my collection. Fun! I'll fill you in when I try it out!

Back sooner rather than later, gals, I promise!
