Lipgloss Break: Bloomingdale Adventures

Bloomingdale Adventures

How cute are these 'Little Brown Mug's???
I heart Bloomingdale's. I spent a solid 3 hours straight there on my first day off this week, and could have spent double that if I had the time. There are about 9 levels of fun to see at the Upper East Side location (on 3rd Avenue). I spent the most time looking at accessories, handbags, cosmetics and women's fashions.

My adventures at Bloomie's...

I discovered Bloomingdale's own line of women clothing called Aqua. Affordable and chic. I bought this strapless dress with pockets. Everything was 40% off on this line, I couldn't resist.

Next, cosmetics. I got my make up done by NiFlame at Estee Lauder. She did an amazing job giving me a pop of color smokey eye. I decided on committing to the Estee Lauder Cooling Eye Illuminator with a ceramic tip. I loved (and was amazed by) how the tip felt so cool and soothing on my skin! The translucent color makes for an easy application, and an immediate noticeable difference.

I went in and out of each handbag designer boutique about 3 times. I loved picking up and trying on all of the designer bags. And finally, I purchased the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac clutch I've been drooling over for about a year now. It's tricky to find Mini Macs with silver hardware so I was super excited that they had this one in stock. This bag deserves a whole separate post. More to come.

VISITORS FYI: Thank you to Niflame for pointing this out to me. If you are visiting from out of state you can get a visitor's pass. This gives you an extra 10% for the day, AND a free gift if you spend a certain amount (easy to do, unfortunately). I was able to use it on my new purse...#awesomeday.
