Christmas in Hawaii: Part I








Well, we have been here for about a week now. It's the end of our trip here in lovely Hawaii but there are so many things to tell. With the small bit of vacation money I had I bought a few things that I wanted for myself. That is something I haven't been able to do that much this semester so it felt fantastic!
First of all, let's talk shoes. The Macy's sale this time of year is a magical place. I bought these shoes for around 50% off. They are Michael Kors (SP/SM 2011) strappy sandals. Ever since I saw a post in Atlantic-Pacific and Kelly Frammel's blogs I have had this overwhelming desire to buy a pair for myself. These are super classy and leg-lengthening in a gorgeous nude hue. But my favorite detail would have to be the braiding.
Perhaps even more major however, is the "Golden Hat" powder, which Lancome released for this holiday season. Unlike the Chanel Holiday shimmer pallet, this one actually does what it says it does: it makes skin brilliant. It also makes you feel great too because a percentage of the proceeds go towards funding Austism research. : ) At just $42 bucks (compare to Chanel's $72- blech!) this compact is not only a steal but also a true-to-value piece.
There will be more photos of the Hawaiian landscape (and merchandiscape) to follow!
