-didnt get a change 2 use that yet

i just got this St. Ives Apricot Scrub, so i didnt get a chance to use it,
but it is a sample size on sale for 99 cents @ CVS that im going to try :)

next, i got Oxy cleansing pads.
5.99 @ cvs
to tell the truth, i used to never ever get pimples until like a week ago i started.
idk why... but anyways when anyone would say i had a flawless face, its not because the makeup i was wearing, it was just my skin. now that im starting to get
pimples, not just one, but like 10 small ones inbetween my eyebrows, one or two
in the crease of my nose, a few small bumps on my chin... yeah not so cool. but- i did hear about these oxy cleansing pads a while back, and they are ABSOLUTELY amazing. i use them once at night, and once in the morning and they work wonders. they are circular, white, pads that help treat acne. i rub them across the
problem areas and by the morning they have visibly went down. they arent completely gone so far, but its definitely a difference.

and, i got Frederic Fekkai Marine Summer Hair Beach Waves Spray.
not gonna lie, this was pretty expensive...
what was it, 23 dollars at lord and taylor?
i know! but let me tell you, i was looking for a way to have effortless hair in the summer. i dont want 2 be straightening my hair everyday in the heat, i wanted something quick and easy, and to use frequently. so of course, i spotted this and had to get it. it is supposed to give you "sexy, tousled waves" that i know all of us want SO bad. now let me tell you, i absolutely ADORE this product. i know, it is on the price-y side, but it is worth it. here are a few pictures of my hair after spraying a generous amount in my wet hair and letting it dry.

okay so lastly, i got a volcom purse for 32.00
I LOVE THIS :) my new thing is to get a new purse every 2 seasons. i have a lot of purses, and i dont really need new ones very often. so, these orange, yellow, and red colors are GREAT for summer, but are also nice and warm for fall. its soo roomy, and lightweight.the straps are nice and durable.

so, i hope you enjoyed this haul! lately, im so jealous of all the youtubers getting out of school now, and i end june 26th! final week is in one week: italian, math and science, so i really really have to buckle down and study my hardest. in friends, ive been having lots of problems. i recently lost my 2 closest friends. that in itself is extremely personal, so i cant tell you how or why. i was thankful to have other friends to back me up, and that hang out with me now a lot. im really glad to realize these friends that i am closer with now, i used to be very close with, really stick by my side. anyways, i love you all, and stay true to yourself. dont trust anyone, no matter how much you want to tell them a secret!
xoxo, francesca
