Spending Ban

Beans.

I feel personally victimized by the spending ban I put on myself. I actually, legitimately hate this more than I’ve hated anything else in my life (That’s a lie. I’m looking at you, Disneyland, you know what you’ve done).

Here are just SOME of the many things I’ve convinced myself that I need during this ban.

wm-lame

World Market $29.99

wm-tote

World Market $11.99

we-cat

West Elm $19.

mc-unicorn

Modcloth $44.99 YOUR CHILD NEEDS THIS, OKAY.

dftba-wizard-school

DFTBA $23.99

am-food-pro

Amazon $39.95 (I convinced Andrew to get this for me as a gift because I broke the other one we had in an attempt to make banana ice cream and I NEEDED MORE)

Literally everything currently sold by Lush $INFINITY

And I can’t get the picture to save but linen duvet covers from Overstock for $104.00 and curtains from Overstock for like $35.00ish.

Last but certainly not least, A House. A fucking house.

THIS IS SICK I HAVE A SICKNESS.

But, also, I’m super proud of myself for nearly completing this ban. I think it would be good for me to track down all of the things I convince myself I need in a month, and then at the end, if there’s something I still really want (lamp and duvet), then I can get it. The other things that I don’t need, they just sort of fall by the wayside.

Also, PS, thank you for the motivation to keep going earlier this week!!

I can!

Japan Haul

Hi Beans! 

Here are some of my favorite things that Andrew and I brought back from Japan! 


First things first, Gudetama. He was a little capsule toy and he hangs on our fridge. We really love his butt crack.


Pikachu dressed like MARIO! He’s so cute and perfect and we happened to be in Japan on the day he released.


You didn’t expect us to just get Mario? Of course not, his brother is incredible. 

 


My Hakuhodo brushes. My prized possessions. So prized that I can’t handle using them. It’s a sickness. 

My Japanese Harry Potter books! I only got 1-3 because I didn’t want to carry back more than that. I also got Quidditch Through the Ages, Magical Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Tales of Beetle the Bard.


My Totoro music box! This is one of my favorite things in the world. LISTEN!


And last but not least, never least, the most incredible perfect thing to have ever entered my life…


Mr. Wah-seebs himself. My one true love. 

I MISS JAPAN LET’S GO BACK AND NEVER COME HOME OKAY?

P.S. I know I’m a day late. Punish me if we’re still doing that. 

My First Dia & Co Box

Hi Kara,

I know I said I was going to talk about the fun serum potions that I featured in my last post, but I want to keep using them for a bit before I give them the rave review they probably deserve. Just be patient! I promise it will come!

Remember when you reviewed Stitch Fix and I lamented about the fact that there’s no plus size option? Well my prayers were answered with Dia & Co!

They are a plus size subscription box, just like Stitch Fix, and I am SO PLEASED WITH THIS SERVICE. The box shipped a few days after I signed up and arrived two days later. I am in love with two of the items but I forgot to tell my stylist that I’m a shorty so some of the items won’t work for me. If you’d like to purchase a box, you can use my link. https://www.dia.co/r/3v8i.  I get $20.00 for everyone who signs up, so if that’s not your thing, feel free to just search for it =)

Here’s what I got:

IMG_0043

Eunishop – Skyla Top – $42.00 – Size 1x

I love this shirt so much. Andrew called it a reverse apron and I think that’s darling. It has birds on the butt!

IMG_0037

Junarose – Vanessa Top – $59.00 – Size 1x

This next shirt would be a keeper but it has two flaws. The little studs catch on whatever is underneath it and I don’t think the shirt itself is worth the price. But otherwise, I LOVE THIS SHIRT. It’s very Illuminati and I adore see through shirts because I’m a closeted oversharer. Farewell cute shirt!

IMG_0038

Tua – Sabrina Top – $31.00 – Size 1x

This shirt is just ridiculous and will have to go. What are those boobie points? Also, I need to let my stylist know that going without a bra/strapless bra is not something that my boobies are capable of.

These pants are way too long and so is this weird painters shirt. NEGATIVE. (Fashion to Figure – Eden Skinny Jean – $46.90 – Size 14 & Fashion to Figure – Jade Chambray Tunic – $34.90 -Size 1x)

I’m excited to see what my stylist does next!

PS here are the details of the box if you’re interested.

Sephora Haul

Hi Bean!

Makeup Geek Haul

Hi Bean,

This week has been very hard. I’ve been in a well of despair, along with most of the country, I think. There’s nothing I feel that I can add to the conversation, or should add to the conversation. But there’s something I can say. Shopping and Makeup are a wonderful. They are wonderful lights. So here’s what I bought.

Makeup Geek has the most wonderful packaging. It makes me mushy.

This Sephora exclusive Z Palette can hold 9 shadows. So pretty. 

img_3108

Top Row (left to right): Tuscan Sun, Chickadee, Peach Smoothie. Second Row: Sand Dollar, Vintage. Third Row: Tiki Hut, Desert Sands, Creme Brûlée 

img_3066

Tuscan Sun is MUG’s new formulation and I almost died. It’s like butter. I cannot wait to play with these. 

img_3071

Fairly certain that both of these are the new formulation and dear god. Vintage is INSANE.

img_3076

Since I can’t be trusted with life, these colors are in reverse : Creme Brûlée, Desert Sands and Tiki Hut. LOOK AT THAT EVER SO SLIGHT SHIMMER ON DESERT SANDS. END ME.

Sending my love to anyone who needs it.

Shopping Spree: Daiso

Hi Karabean and Cheese,

I wanted to show you what I got and saw from Daiso, a Japanese Dollar Store chain in the LA area (we went to the one in Orange/Anaheim). 

Powder puff, face masks, piggie timer (cuz duh), cute tabs

Eyelash carrier and eyelashes


I’m excited to start trying these! 

And here are some things that I saw but didn’t buy.

It was very hard not to buy this for you, Bean

D:


I had so much fun exploring this place and I can’t wait to go back soon! 

Shopping Spree : A Saga

Hello Bean,

First – let’s just talk about how miserable I am at posting. Very. But my lovely and wonderful and perfect Bean has allowed me to post twice this week so I don’t get punished. Yay!

Second – I’ve been very bad lately. I’ve bought a lot of stuff. So I’m going to show it to you in a way to try and justify it in my head.

Third – I went to LA/Orange this past weekend to see the Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl. Unfortunately, I got sick and couldn’t go. But – I did get to go and do a lot of other fun things and otherwise had a very restful, lovely weekend.

SO since I’m trying to butter you up, Keddahbean, here is what I got from Downtown Disney!

A Friendly Ghost, Baloo and Bagheera! (Bagheera is for you <3)

Lollipop for Brenda’s son, Hatbox Ghost Pin and an Up Pin

I hope you enjoyed this little Disney Haul!

❤ See you Saturday!

PS THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! I just figured out that we will be in JAPAN ON OUR FRIENDVERSARY. AND WHAT IS LIFE. Also, instead of a honeymoon this trip is going to be a pollensunrise. Alison created this and I love it the most. THE END.
