Vacation Souvenirs

Are you the type of person who comes back from a vacation with a suitcase full of souvenirs? Do you like to buy t-shirts, shot glasses and magnets with your destination on it? I have sworn off that kind of thing and although my last tee purchase makes for a good gym shirt, I still like to have a piece of my vacation to come back home with me. So I just wanted to share a few of the souvenirs from my trip last month.



I saw this belt from J. Crew in a catalog and immediately wanted it because I've been on the hunt for belts with color and patterns. Patience can be a virtue because when I dragged my guy to the mall, there the belt was on super sale. I love it so much I wore it the next day while still on vacation.




I got roped into a little make-over when I peeked at the Chanel counter and tested the new Illusion D'Ombre eyeshadow. It adds such a wonderful sparkle to the eyelid, but not in young, only for going out kind of make-up look. A little bit of luxury for a price that's kind to the wallet. Love it!!


And this last piece is pretty special, can anyone guess what it might be?

What's your guess???

    And I have to say I love the Chanel eyeshadow too. I want to snatch up another color because they have a wonderful shimmer. Definitely try it, if you haven't already.

    I saw the chanel eye shadows this weekend at nordstrom and LOVED them. I didn't have my wallet with me though so i didn't get any, but I will definitely go back for them.

  13. Congrats on the engagement!

    I do like to get a magnet from wherever I travel. I also like to get at least one thing the area is known for, lace, leather goods, art etc.
