This week has just whizzed by in a blur of working, blogging and Christmas shopping! My Ulta3 advent calendar* has only three more doors to open, which makes my quite excited that Christmas is so close! The past week on CM was a lot of shopping talk and I shared the things I got while I was on holiday in the US last month. Each was split into categories with a break down of products and pricing including swatches where I could.

USA HAUL #006 // Skincare, Perfume + Misc. - CassandraMyee

To finish up my week of hauls from my USA trip, I thought I would include a few extra beauty bits and some non-beauty related items as well. I also bought a few clothing items, which was mostly winter scarves, oh and a nice kimono from Forever 21, but haven't included them in this lot.

USA HAUL #005 // Nails - Essie, OPI, Urban Outfitters + Formula X - CassandraMyee

It's day five of the USA Hauls (catch up here; Drugstores, MAC, Nordstrom Rack, Sephora + Macy's), and today it is all about the nails. This is more of a collective of purchases I made at Walgreens, Sephora, Urban Outfitters and even at Bed, Bath + Beyond. I'm sure that all of these will be cropping up in NOTDs very soon, but I have included swatches of each shade on my nail wheels for your reference!

USA HAUL #004 // Sephora + Macy's - CassandraMyee

If there's one haul post you don't wanna miss this week, it's this one. Ah, Sephora... you have my heart, my soul (and all my money), but gosh, you are a makeup lovers dream! I've been into Sephora a few times, years ago in LA (before I was heavily into makeup + blogging) and not so long ago in Rome, but this time around I did some serious damage (and took at least four trips in there!) As well as lots of Sephora goodies, I've also included items I got from the Macy's beauty department, because I managed to get some of the items I desperately wanted from there that I couldn't find at Sephora.

USA HAUL #003 // Nordstrom Rack | Too Faced + LORAC Sets [+ Swatches] - CassandraMyee

It's day three of the US hauls here on CM, and today's one is packed with bargains galore. If you've missed Monday's or Tuesday's post , basically I went to the States for a week and bought a lot of beauty related thing, so naturally I had to share them all! Today I focus on one shop in particular, Nordstrom Rack, where all of the Nordstrom designer clothes, shoes, bags, homeware, and beauty bits, end up in one huge, sale filled shop. Everything is hugely discounted, and boy, was I happy to see the sales in the beauty department...

USA HAUL #002 // MAC - Heirloom Mix Collection + More- CassandraMyee

I don't think you could take a trip to the US without a stop off (or two) at MAC. As per yesterday's post, this week is haul week, sharing with you all some of the purchase I made while on a week's holiday to San Fran and Seattle. Now I definitely made a couple of trips to the MAC stores and also the counters they had in Nordstrom, Macy's and other department stores. I had a little list of things I for sure wanted to buy, but of course, was tempted by a few extra products too!

USA HAUL #001 // The Drugstores | Target, Walgreens + More

USA HAUL #001 // The Drugstores | Target + Walgreens - CassandraMyee

Finally they are here... the USA hauls! I've been hinting at these since I got back at the end of November that I had done a lot of shopping damage while on a family trip to San Francisco and Seattle, and today kicks off with #001. I did a shit load heck of a load of shopping in the space of a week because, a) #treatyoself, b) #feelingspendy, and c) the prices over there are so much better than they are in NZ, hence why I took full advantage of this.

Every single day this week will be a new haul post, I know... that is six days of hauls! It will include the drugstores, Nordstrom Rack, Macy's, some miscellaneous things, and of course, Sephora (a.k.a. the mothership), among others. I'll also be including product information, pricing, swatches and first impressions where I can (as I always try to do), so it's not simply "look at all the things I got". To kick off the week, I'm starting with the cheaper end of the scale; the drugstores, in particular Target and Walgreens.
