This weekend I went to Raleigh, NC with 5 of my girl friends for one of their birthdays. It was the end of finals so all of us were ready to go out and free our minds. This is my first “real” blog post since I’ve fixed my “real” blog the way I want it, and I intend to keep it up.

Earrings and shorts: Forever 21
Red knit skirt: Wet Seal
OPI Shatter polish and China Glaze ‘Electric Pineapple’: Ulta Beauty
Bikini pieces and red metallic flats: H&M
Silver nail polishes: Jewel FX by Milani; Black Poppy brand from Pacsun
Pink and black dress, jewelry: Charlotte Russe

A friend told me I would fall in love with Ulta and I most definitely did. I originally spent $43 in the store but ended up returning a bottle of Purity cleanser because I realized it wasn’t the one I wanted from the website. Most of my purchases this weekend seem like odds and ends – mostly bright ideas I thought would be good additions. Plus, I couldn’t turn down the start of summer special H&M was having – the bathing suit pieces I got were only $4.95 a piece.
