So, I finally invested in running shoes! Haha, I think if I ran in converses anymore my feet would be messed up later in life.

Honestly, these are super super lightweight. Seriously, when I think of running shoes, I figured they would not a tad bit heavier because of the extra support. Well no these are amazing! Plus I love the color combo! I mean is it bad if I buy the shoes because they're pretty? I think not.

Price: $90 I could not stop laughing when I tried on these shoes. I mostly wear flats and heels to school or work so I'm skeptical about buy tennis shoes. I could not stop laughing about how wide my feet were. Thankfully the sales associate at Nordstrom was understanding and knew where I was coming from. Haha. Love it.

I've been loving sports bra every since I've been hitting the gym.

I got these at forever 21 and get this they're 3.80! Seriously shut up! What a deal right? They come all sorts of colors, I picked up a lemon yellow & neon pink one just because I adore bright colors.

They come in many varieties like Y-backs, extra support, and what not. Just throw a tee shirt over these bra's and you're good to go. And if you have a rockin' body just wear these alone.

I have really sensitive skin after getting a second degree burn from Mexico two years ago. I was naive because I knew it was hot and the skies were gray. Since I figured there was no sun, that means no need for sunblock. Boy, was I wrong.

Sunblock is part of my daily routine, I'm not that person that applies it once and I think I'm good for the rest of the day. I'm that girl that reapplies four to five times depending on how much sun exposure I get.
And after getting countless mini sunburns, my face grew immune to aloe vera. And my friend who has eczema had recommended me a brand sold at Sephora and online called Juice Beauty. And a person who has eczema can never steer you wrong in beauty products.

I am in love with Juice Beauty Nutrient Moisturizer. It really does work wonders for my skin. If I'm paranoid or feel that I might be burn I just smooth this over my skin. And it's instantly hydrated, and no burn :)!

It is a bit on the thicker side, but it does absorb rather quickly. It is on the pricier side I believe about $40. I love that everything being put into this moisturizer is organic. There is a slight smell to it. I believe it either smells like carrot juice or something similar.

Last but not least Essie nail polish in lilacism. I love the color lavender. I saw this at target for about $8 and I knew I had to have it.

You need about 2 coats to get the true color. This color reminds of M&M's they have during spring. Right around Easter they make M&M's in pretty spring colors.

This is the first bottle I've picked up from Essie, I'm a die hard OPI junkie. Now, I have reasons to love both!
That is how I would describe this color. Plus I've been on a purple phase.

Look how delicious this color looks against my purple tracksuit. Honestly the color in the bottle does this color no justice. I overlooked this, the last time at Target because I was thinking the shade isn't that pretty. But it grows on you. So I really like this color.

So much for being on a shopping ban. Haha.
