Chanel Haul

It's been a crazy week, to say the least.  Sunday was my godson's brother's Pee Wee Football Super Bowl Game.  The Brentwood Steelers clinched the championship title against the Falcons, 7-6.  Congratulations, Randy! As I was running up and down the sidelines yelling me head off, I took a bad step and tore my right calf muscle.  I've been hobbling ever since.  Nothing can make you feel better than retail therapy and no brand can make me feel as luxurious as Chanel.

So off to my local Chanel counter I went.  Was dying to see the new Holiday 2011 Collection.  To my surprise, my lovely friends, Tito, Lauren and Gloria showed me some items from the new Spring 2012 Collection also.  I went to get a few staples and ended up getting a mix of items that I'm delighted to show you.

Full Haul
My haul was comprised of skin care staples, eye products, lip products, and lastly a blush.  The staples I needed were the Lotion Confort (Toner), which they had but they were out of the Lait Confort (Cleanser).  Of course, they offered to order it online, but since I love visiting Tito so much, I promised to return soon to come get it.  Anyway, here are some photos of my new goodies.

  1. Thanks for the swatches of the collection. I'm still waiting for it to arrive at the local counters. Which would you say is your favorite item?

  2. @Kristie I would have to say the Blush Horizon is my favorite with the Grenat Stylo Yeux a close second.
