Where the hell have you been?

Great question! For those of you who have been following me or have just started to follow this blog (there are quite a few who have subbed recently on Bloglovin), you may have been wondering if I was ever going to post again. Well, here I am. 

Things were getting hectic last year in December strictly due to the time of year, but then I also broke up with my boyfriend which was pretty gut wrenching, my job was slowly killing me, and then, surprisingly, my company decided to shut down my photo studio... leaving me jobless. It was a rough couple of months and blogging was the last thing on my mind. I simply took a break. I've been unemployed the last two or so months, which seems like a great time to blog, but I had just kind of lost interest. Now, ironically enough, I've just gotten a new job and it made me want to start blogging again! Because blogging when I had nothing to do would have just made way too much sense.

Anyhow, that's where I've been the last few months; just dealing with my own life and that sort of boring nonsense. Since I'm trying to get back into the blogosphere now, I feel like I should inform those of you who may not know, that Sephora is having their annual spring sale! Here are the details (because obviously, if I'm getting back into blogging, I should also be enabling, right?):

The sale started today (4/12) for VIB Rouge members, who receive 15% off any purchase in store and online, and will only be active for Rouge until 4/16/15. On that date, the sale becomes active for VIB members, who will also receive 15% off all purchases in store and online. On 4/17/15, the sale becomes active for all Beauty Insider members (membership is free, just sign up, dammit) and BI members will receive 10% off all purchases in store and online. The sale ends for VIB/VIB Rouge on 4/21/15 and for BI members on 4/20/15. Have I thoroughly confused you with all of these dates? Ok, well, let me list it out for you all nice like.

Our annual event is back in April! For a limited time we're celebrating our clients with a special, limited-time offer. See details and dates below. 
4/12/2015 - 4/21/2015: VIB Rouge 15% off
 4/16/2015 - 4/21/2015: VIB 15%  
4/17/2015 - 4/20/2015: BI 10%

You may think to yourself, "I wonder what Bisous Darling bought at the Sephora sale..." Well, let me tell you what I purchased this morning at the Beauty Before Brunch even for VIB Rouge members.

Shiseido Facial Cottons

These are a bit pricey, but my god, after I started using them, I could never go back to normal cotton rounds. These feel like pillows on your face and I can use ONE to remove an entire face of makeup.

Clinique Lash Power Mascara

I've honestly never used this mascara before, but I saw Sharon Farrell talk about it on her YouTube channel and I was instantly intrigued. I've really been loving mascaras with tiny brushes recently, so I picked this up to try out/add to my massive pile of mascaras that I need to use.

Sephora Honey Eye Mask

Ok, ok, this was an impulse purchase. I had my birthday celebration last night and I may have gotten home fairly close to 4 a.m. and then gotten up at 8:30 a.m. to go to the Sephora event. My eyes hurt, I needed something... so I bought these. They were $5! And they'll be fun.

Sephora Pearl Mask

I've been meaning to pick up a Sephora brand sheet mask to see how they fare against some of the my Korean sheet masks. I liked the sound of "perfecting and brightening", so I picked up this one. I'll definitely do a review on this to let you guys know what I think of it.

Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette in Infinity

Y'all. That picture above just doesn't do the product justice. I have heard a ton of mixed reviews on these palettes, but Infinity is amazing. It swatches amazingly, it doesn't seem to have a lot of fall out (or maybe it's just how I apply shadow?), and it's 4 matte shades and one beautiful shimmer. There will definitely be an entire post about this bad boy, don't you worry.

I also picked up my free birthday gift with the two NARS lip pencils and one NARS eye pencil. Are you guys picking anything up from the Sephora sale? Or want to get an opinion on something? Feel free to leave a comment below! I've missed my blog and am so happy to be back!!
