Hey Guys! This week I took a trip down to downtown LA for some shopping 🙂 Although I didn’t purchase much- I got some major inspo for looks and even blog posts. I decided to bring you along on my adventure! Follow me around LA!
As you can see in my video- I specifically noted that the makeup at Santee Alley is FAKE. I mean.. C’mon. $2 for a kylie jenner lip kit? Sounds fishy. Indeed most of the makeup at the district is made by companies based in china that use scary ingredients to make a fake “dupe”… Ingredients like GLUE and even apparently RAT droppings (yuck). Not all of the fake products contain these ingredients… but be safe. The same fake makeup is sold on platforms like AliExpress. Be cautious!
Now- For a little haul.
I came on a specific mission to find
1- A cute leather backpack for school
2- A new pair of sunglasses
A small, but long mission!
Here’s what I came out with-
I picked up the leather backpack for a steal! EBay listings are going for anywhere from $20-$40 for a bag similar to this- but I picked it up for only $10!
From the same vendor- I also got this adorable army green purse that can be converted into a mini backpack or a satchel like bag. – $10
Last but not least- Some over-sized cat-eye sunglasses 🙂 -$5
I’m super pleased with all my purchases- and can’t wait to go back to downtown LA!
Remember to stay brave.
