Going To NYC Tomorrow + Mini Haul!

Hiya! I feel like I haven't blogged in foooorever, mostly in part since I have yet to buy a full length mirror and never get snaps of my coords. I did try to keep up with pictures of my makeup.

My apartments lighting sucks but I found an amazing place in the campus library that gets tons of natural light and I get really decent pictures.

Anyway I'm going to NYC tomorrw for SM Town NY (K-Pop concert) with some friends and guess what.....ONE OF THEM IS GAL! Hallelujah I'm not lonely anymore.

We're going to go to that Japanese bookstore and I've been praying that I can find Soul Sister vol. 2 there. That's pretty much all I want really.

Unrelated....Walmart had a crap ton of Hello Kitty stuff and I was tempted to blow my freaking budget but didn't (my horoscope said not to, I did bend/dent it (-_-;;)

I went out to get tools to manage my brows (which have just been horrid by my standards recently) and buy some more clips for my clip in extentions I made.

Ended buying more stuff but so far it's stuff I need and want. I'm happy with my purchases.

Here's what I got:

Beyond the Zone "Split Mender" leave in conditioner. This stuff is amazing. Idk if you noticed but I'm Black so when my hair gets wet it gets curly and when I blow dry it, it gets super frizzy but this tamed it and made  my ends so nice!

Beyond the Zone Smooth Enuff- haven't used.The stuff was buy 2 get one free so I chose this. I'll do proper reviews on everything later.

Beyond the Zone Protein Cocktail leave in conditioner. Haven't tried it but apparently it was in Lyfe & Style magazine and Nicole Richie uses it.

My quest for a deep dark red lip has brought me to NYC for the Sugar Plum Fairy (lime green circle) and Vamp it Up (magenta cirlce). Between these two and my MAC Viva La Glam III and Manic Panic Kiss of Death I should be able to combine and mix for all sorts of looks.

100% Human clip in hair extensions in purple. I want to get some in a teal blue color as well as pink but I had to remeber I have rent and bills now so I just got one pack of the purple to add a slash of color to my always near black hair.

I also got more foundation (a few days ago I bought one from Maybaline but it's a little to dark for me but the shade before that it a little too light so I'm going to mix and hopefully have a just right moment.

Had to buy polish because my huge bag of it is at home TT.TT so I can make some nails tonight. They'll be black and a midnight blue with hot pink, lime green, and yellow rhinestones. They'll be rock themed (I have dead zombie teddy bear decals). My idea is inspired by Miho's nails in Soul Sister Vol. 1

Also found a lip concealer for my complexion. Trying to find the right mix of concealer and lipsticks to a nude lip for my skin tone has been a challenge. Damn I'll be happy when I do.

Well I'll take loads of pictures but I have to go flat iron my hair and pack and finish my nails.....ugh.
