received some stuff I bought from eBay today...

I love getting packages.... it's just so exciting!! LOL

what's more exciting is seeing what's inside...

yes, I got the Carolina Herrera 212... if you remember, on this post, I included this in the 5 perfumes I would consider buying... I really liked the smell of this when I had a sniff at Sephora... I went straight to eBay & bought this as soon as I got home... I found a great deal... what I didn't pay attention to is the details on the sellers product description... I actually got a tester, it wasn't used or anything but it was a tester bottle.... I was too excited to get my hands on this that I didn't care about anything... as soon as I see the "100% authentic guaranteed" I'm good to go... LOL... I'm really happy about it though... hey, just as long as I got the same exact thing, a brand new one, I'm okay with that! besides, what do I have to complain about if I got it for cheap!

I got the 3.4oz bottle for $31.80 + $9.99 S&H... the same exact size is being sold at Sephora for $86.... I paid only half of the original cost... again, really, what do I have to complain about?!?

it smelled really fresh.. it has a very subtle hint of fruity & floral scent... & a little bit of fresh laundry smell.. I can't quite distinguish what it is... but I loooooove it!!!

I also got the ZOYA in Barbie.... I have yet to try this but based on the swatches I've seen, I know I'm gonna like it....

    try the nail polish and let me know if it turns out nice! :)

    In response to ur comment: Aw sorry bout ur lens, nudys are <3, hehe. The only difference that I know of is that the super nudys are bigger in diameter. I don't have the regular ones to do a comparison though. I get mine from I'm about to do a post on them though (today or tomorrow), so watchfor that if you'd like :).
