Weekend Rewind What's in My Bag?


So, you saw what I did this past weekend... now to the even better part. What was in my
bag while staying at the beach?! It's funny that I managed to basically pick up just
beauty things while on vaca. Things that I can get just right down the road from where I live.
No exciting clothes from a unique boutique shop... just beauty goodies and a few tees. 

Their was an Ulta right down from where we stayed and mom and I picked up a few things
on a rainy stormy day. 




It is borderline crazy how much these polishes are. $14 for a bottle of nail polish seems a bit
out there, right?! I agree. That's why these polishes are really a treat. I got my first two Butter 
London polishes over Christmas and really love the way they apply! They have a very
watery kind of texture that makes them thinner and SO much easier to apply without
a thick nasty mess. 

So, I decided to treat myself to a hot pink called (Snog) and a fun glittery 
purple in (No More Waity Katie.) BTW, love the name of purple. You know that's what
the Londoners called Kate Middleton when she was in waiting for her prince to pop
the question. Apparently, everyone in England felt like she she was just waiting for him to propose. 
I mean... he is a guy worth waiting for. 



Onto some skincare. My friend Alison recently bought this Be Pure Mud Mask by this brand
Formula 10.0.6. I really know nothing about his brand nor did she. No one recommended it 
or anything. We both have been borderline obsessed with noticing our pores lately and trying to find
solutions. 

So, I decided to pick up both the cleanser and the mud mask and see how they work in 
cleansing and refining my pores and impurities. I like that the cleanser has Green Tea infused in. 
Green Tea is supposed to be great for your skin and effective in fighting blemishes. The mud
mask smells really nice and I'm looking forward to trying it out. 

Both of these products are very affordable. $5.99 a piece at Ulta. Not sure if they are sold 
anywhere else. 

So, I have had my eye on the newly released "They're Real" mascara from Benefit. 
I have heard people rave about this mascara and how wonderful and volumizing it is. It seems 
to be a cult fave. 

I don't like to pay much for mascara. I really feel like most of them work about the same way
on my lashes and the drugstore brands do the trick. However, I did splurge a little on this one 
to see if it is truly what everyone says it is. 


One thing I have found to be very different than most mascara's is the brush applicator. 
It's got a rubbery spiky kind of wand and the couple days I have used it I can really 
feel it pulling my lashes. It's like the bristles really grab hold of your lashes to get the 
product on them and then pull them for lengthening and volumizing. 

This mascara retails for $22. 

 My sweet mom always has little "treats" for me when I come home. So, when I met
them at the beach she had a "treat" for me in my bedroom in the condo. Ha. 

She bought me these Yes to Cucumber face wipes. I have used these before and enjoyed. 
They are super gentle on your skin and just have a fresh sensation with the light cucumber
scent. I have been using some form of a face wipe as my first step of removing the make-up 
on my face and then following up with my Purity cleanser. This leaves
me with a great clean face! : )


I found this little complexion brush for exfoliating at the basket near the check out counter
at Ulta. It was $2.99 and I thought it would be perfect for traveling when you want a deeper clean, 
but don't want to pack your clarisonic or in my case skinsonic. This brush has a great soft head
and is small and compact enough to throw into your make up bag. 

So, that completes this edition of What's in my Bag. Leave it to me to run off to the beach 
and come back with some beauties from Ulta. 

I hope you have a wonderful day. 

Verse of the day:
"Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. 
Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow."
Isaiah 1:16-17

What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
