Pretty Peony

Merry Christmas everyone! I wanted to share with you one of my favorite presents from this year - a set of decals for my MacBook Pro keyboard. I received them from a company called Kidecals. Here's how they look on my 15" MacBook Pro:

Beauty Purchases at Target

This past Saturday, I made my weekly trip to Target. I picked up a new eye shadow palette from Sonia Kashuk that is super similar to the Urban Decay Naked and Naked 2 palettes. Notice each Naked palette has 12 shades and the Sonia Kashuk palette has 24. Coincidence?

Check out the price and color comparison:

Urban Decay Naked Palette, c/o Sephora - $52

Urban Decay Naked Palette 2, c/o Sephora - $52

Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition "Eye on Neutral Matte/Shimmer" Palette, c/o Target - $29.99

Side by Side

Look familiar? I'd say this is an incredible deal. The price of the Target palette is already less than one of the Urban Decay palettes and has twice the number of shades. I've applied a few of the shadows from the Sonia Kashuk palette and the pigment is awesome!

The second item I purchased is a beautiful green makeup bag. This sucker has tons of pockets for lip glosses, brushes and even a few zippered compartments. I am in love.

Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition Completely Organized Grande "Emerald Jewel" Cosmetic Bag - $16.99

This will be perfect for my trip back home for the holidays!
