Hey everyone! So a couple of weeks ago I was browsing the Sephora sale section, as ya do, and came across some lovely train cases that were on sale. I have been keeping my eyes open for a nice basic train case for a while so I decided to make an small order.
Little did I know that evil Sephora had planned a 15% off VIB coupon to be sent out only a week later! Needless to say, I decided to do a double order and wanted to share with all of you what I decided to purchase. (It may include some paper, plastic, and even a laser gun. Bwahahaha...)
Video, a full list of products, and what's on my nails below!

Steve & Barry's Denim Jacket (similar/similar/similar)
Target Purple Gingham shirt (similar/similar/similar or try this J.Crew boy's version)

Urban Decay Super Saturated Lip Color in Lovechild
Nails are ombré painted (CND Indian Rhubarb, Revlon Mon Cherry, Revlon Plum Baby, Essie Chastity, Orly Kiss The Bride)
So firstly, I wanted to talk about the big splurge purchase that I used the 15% off coupon mainly for which is the Silk'n Flash&Go.
I want to do a longer review on this once I test it out for a couple months but here is a stock photo so you get an idea of what it looks like. It's a handheld HPL ("Home Pulsed Light" versus IPL or "Intense Pulsed Light" which is the professional treatment) device that comes with a light cartridge attached and one extra cartridge in the box for $299 at Sephora. It's pricey, but I noticed it was also selling at Nordstrom for $349 so all in all, not a bad deal with the extra 15% off code.
Again, I'll do a longer review when I get comfortable with the device and see if it actually works or not! So far, I've only used it once since treatments are spaced 2 weeks apart. Fingers crossed it's a cheaper alternative to professional hair removal!
I also wanted to show you my nails that you may have noticed in the video. It was really difficult to find exactly the right step in shades to do a perfect ombré manicure but I think it turned out pretty well. I stuck with creme finish polishes since shimmers can be distracting when you want a smooth gradient of color.
From L to R:
I hope you enjoyed the haul! Let me know in the comments what you think about the ombré manicure trend, if you've tried any type of pulsed light hair removal, and PLEASE let me know which train case I should keep! Pink or black? Black or pink?
Have a great weekend! xoxo
