Haul: Shoes shoes shoess

Hey everyone! It's been a long time again and I do apologize I was just waiting for everything to get in to do a haul for you guys. But just to post something for now I'll show you guys the shoes I got since I've worn out my other flats. There will be a clothing/etc haul soon though! I hope you guys enjoy :)

Orig. $79.98 with promo code $59.99
So first off, I went on ShoeMint for my first purchase and I have been looking at these boots for AGES! This is the Esther collection in Taupe and it's just so my style and I hope to get the whole Esther series. These booties/boots are so comfortable and perfect for the fall and just year round. These boots are also very well made.
Oh, and if you're not aware about ShoeMint, it's an online subscription shopping site specifically for shoes and now they have a few bags. First, you take a quiz and then a stylist will match you up to shoes that match your style and it'll be in you showroom. But you can view all the shoes still.You pay $79.98 each month with free shipping and you get credits to buy shoes, or you can skip the month. It's pretty cool and it's like Sole Society, Just Fab, etc. Check it out here --> ShoeMint
First purchase promo code: RACHEL20

So next off, I went on Steven Madden. To my luck, they had a sale on really cute flats AND a promo code going on of 30% off the entire purchase so I got $60 off my entire purchase. So I was pretty lucky to snatch up these three flats up.

This is the Kwilted Black Leather Flats for $62.98 on sale.
For some reason I've been getting a lot of quilted black leather things.. like my Kate Spade bag. Weird. But I love these flats! They are so comfortable and didn't hurt that much as I was assuming to hurt. It just dug a bit into one of my heels. Also, I was inspired to get these by a few Youtubers having this pair and thought it was the perfect flats for me too.

These are the Facto Natural Multi Flats that wasn't on sale for I think $80.
The colors really pretty in life. It's like a perfect coffee color, though it shows up like a dark caramel.

There are the Kadiee flats in Blush Patent for around $56.
I fell in love with the back studs cause I thought it was like settle way to bring the stud and tassel trend going on into a flat. the only thing is that I have really wide feet and it's a bit snug, so I'll have to break these in.
Steven Madden is having a promo right too online: LEAVES

Just to let you guys know, this was NOT sponsored. I'm just a bad shopaholic and I really needed some shoes that'd actually last. You'll mostly catch me wearing flats, flip flops, and boots all throughout the year! It's kind of a splurge... but I think it's amended by the fact my birthdays next week, haha.
I hope you guys enjoyed! And let me know if you want me to do more of these..

Veet Hair Removal Gel Cream Review

Hey guys! Today I'm going to do a review about the Veet Hair Removal Gel Cream for normal dry skin. What it basically is if you haven't heard about it, it is a cream you rub onto your skin and wait 3-7 minutes as suggested, wipe it off/wash off and it will remove your hair. There are two different kinds of the cream; there's one for sensitive skin and just one for normal and dry skinned people. Veet also makes different products for hair removal too.

So 2 weeks at the beach and I'm already tan! It's amazing how pale I use to be :T I think I'm starting to like the new look now especially with really bright colors like neon pink against tan skin. It just makes the color really pop.
The only thing about tanning is the sunburn you might get. I highly recommend protection! Oh and  this really cool Zinc sunblock on the lips like what lifeguards use on their nose. It comes in different colors so it's cool to mess around with :D
Remember everyone, it's really important to moisturize during the summer too! You'll have better luck with cocobutter on sunburns and toning your skin. During the first day I went to the beach I got sunburn that progressed and instead of using a sugar and honey scrub on my lips I used it on my skin and it works just as well for removing dead skin.
Sunglasses and hats are going to be your friends for summer. You really have to protect your eye area because it may cause more wrinkles and it gets damaged easily. (Lesson that I've come to learn)

I made an Instragram <3 it's a_breath

Adventured in Queens today

Well today I went to Flushing, Queens with my friends. The second Asian central in NY haha.

At first I was wondering around the second floor of New World Mall and I found the cutest dress ever! Too bad I didn't get it.. Maybe I'll go get it when I return sometimes. But I really want it because it reminds my of the blue version on ModCloth. The fit was like a glove!!

Afterwards I got really bored so I started to put on random glasses. It was fun! These are my fav that I should of got just to mess around. I also have pics of purple HelloKitty ones. They were cute too!

Well then after walking to other stores and running into a glass door I decided to just leave the shopping area... But I did by REALLY cute blotting sheets!

It was really cute and I got it for $6.

So one main reasons why I go to Queens is to buy bubble tea, egg tarts, and just eat. But here's some food I bought and haven't gobbled down yet :D

Yeah I love my sweet candies. All of my childhood *tear* Haha

If your wondering what that's seasoned seaweed. Everyone thinks I'm weird for eating that, but I love it! It's the best thing in the world. And surprisingly, the nutrition box says it has 0calories.
I also got those little bottles of soy milk,but no need to show that :D

 So my day kind of ended after going to Joyce Leslie and I wanted this outfit(so cute but the pants were a bit tight and didn't have another size so maybe I'll go find it at another Joyce Leslie) and another dress with pink zebra print and laced ribbon in the back similar to the black sweater dress by Guess, but I had to bite down my desire :(

Very hot but I had a good day :D

Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me Review

Hey everyone! I heard a lot about the Maybelline Baby Lip and really I thought what was so great about it after someone on Facebook what bragging about how they bought every color and how I watch the rave on Youtube about it. But now I know...I LOVE this product. I got the one in Cherry Red. 

Seriously, no lie.

At first I was intimated by how red the chapstick was, but I just went with my gut instincts to get it. It is EXTREMELY hard for my to find a lip product that I actually like, but I have finally found it.

I think I have sensitive lips or whatever, but unlike other lip products I used, the Baby Lips doesn't make my lips really chap or even peel/thtat white layer It is very moisturizing and you'll probably need just need a few touch ups during the day.

When I first applied it, it was very smooth. On closer inspections, it looked like a really light coat of lip gloss without the sticky-ness. And it tinted my lips a little red which I really liked because my lips looked really pale lately. I also like wearing my MAC Ravishing lipstick and then putting it over for a really nice finish.

I like the packaging. It's dainty, small, and easy to put in the purse. I like the clear covering, so I know what color I'm putting on.

Overall, I love this product. It's finally a product that moisturizes my lips and doesn't make it chap. It gives little color which I like. It applies smooth and doesn't feel like anything is on your lips. Easy to wear and I look forward to purchasing more of Maybelline's Baby Lip line :)

What have you been applying on your lips lately?

6*2*12 Update

Hi everyone! I hope you guys are all enjoying the warmer weather. School is almost out and that means more free time! I have 5 more days, hooray! I am testing this coming week though, so it's been a bit busy. If you guys have finals, I wish you all luck :)
Ah and what kept me so busy was watching my Asian dramas, but I should really study. 49 Days is such a sad drama, ugh I don't like the ending but it's cute! Queen Inhyun's Man is also good and a bit more different from other dramas I've watched. I can't wait for the updates!
Oh, I'll be going back to NY the 14th! I can't wait to visit all my friends again and shopping! A small suprise is to be ready for a haul.

What are you guys doing this summer? Are you going to the beach?
Just testing a new look don't mind That's a heart by the way ;)
Have a great day/night? Have fun and maybe even good luck!

A Few Beauty Must Haves for Summer

Picture I took in LA at New Port Beach
Considering summer is right around the corner (so excited 17 days of school left!), I've decided to put up a beauty post about what you might help to have in your summer makeup bags. I have a pretty good idea of what will always be in mine during the summer considering Florida weather is almost summer year round. I've learned to have a lot of handy items since I moved here.
I hope some items in here might inspire you to put that in your bag :)
