I saw this idea for a post on The College Prepster today and thought it was genius. The reason being not only do I get to share some amazing buys with you guys, but I get to discover them myself. So here it goes…
I literally swear by this mascara. ($8.99!) I'm not huge on wearing make up, and usually just wear mascara unless I'm doing something important, so a good mascara is very important for me. I have naturally pretty long eyelashes so I find that a lot of mascaras make them clumpy and look scary long. This stuff is perfect. If you're looking for a good mascara, without a doubt this is it. Many of my friends with many different sized eyelashes use this and I've yet to hear a complaint.
This scarf is only $9.80 at Forever 21. My mom jokes that when you buy something there you have 21 days until it falls apart, but usually their scarves aren't too bad. This one looks super comfy and very versatile for Fall! This is definitely on my wish list.
This book will change your life. OK maybe not really, but it is hilarious. I've read the whole series and they're all very quick reads and impossible to put down. They're the perfect mix of snotty and entertaining and will keep you laughing forever. I recommend for reading on the beach, on the plane, or at night when you can't sleep. The books are only available on the Kindle, but the Kindle app is free in the App Store and these are only $5!
This color is possibly my favorite nail color yet. I recently had it on my nails and they looked so good, and I felt fabulous with the shade on my nails. I'm a firm believer that a good nail polish color and a good mood go hand in hand (no pun intended) so this is definitely worth the $8.50.
This is what it looks like on- so cute! It's a bit darker in person but definitely doesn't look black.
P.S. fun fact- I don't actually know how to paint my nails. I've been taught before but it just isn't the skill for me. In order for me to have painted nails I either need to block out three hours to do them myself or get them done. It can be hilarious but usually it's just very inconvenient. I think half the problem may be that I just don't have the patience to let them dry.
Oh my goodness. These flats are only $9.98 at Target!! They only have sizes 9.5, 10, and 11, so my 6.5's won't be wearing them, but if you'll fit in them you should definitely snatch them up! They're so cute!!
Speaking of Target, I love this pillow. I have about a million accent pillows on my bed at school and I'm always looking for more. I swear one day I'll fill the entire bed with pillows… Get it for just $9.98.
While I don't have too many clothes from Urban Outfitters, I think their apartment section is hilarious. These are "Passive Aggressive Cards" for everyone in your life. With Christmas just around the corner (well not really, but I'm excited already!) you should definitely be investing in these for $7.95
This is my favorite book in the world. I read it junior year for my English class and didn't expect anything but it's great. It's so interesting because it's told from such a real perspective that you keep having to remind yourself that it's fiction. I don't want to say too much because I don't want to give it away, but you can buy it on Amazon for $9.54
This product will save your face. Normally konjac sponges are $15 but this one is $10 on Amazon! It will seriously cleanse everything away and you will feel like a new person. I'm obsessed with my skin and always need it to be clean, but this will clean the dirtiest of faces and leave your face feeling a way you didn't know existed. Buy. Now.
Alright, these are $12, but if you're a skier they're worth every last penny. I swear by these on the mountain and off, and they're a necessity for everyone. Whether you pair these with ski boots or riding boots they should be in your wardrobe ASAP. LL Bean makes the best warm stuff, I could seriously lay in bed all day with LL Bean from head to toe.
