Steve Madden Leather Boots

Okay, I'm a bit obsessed wih Steve Madden shoes at the moment. (These are my 5th pair within a few months.) I fell in love with the knee-high length and the loose, slouchy fit. It gives off both a casual and dressy vibe all at the same time. I'm pairing this with a black loose off-the-shoulder top and a tight black skirt. I was headed to a dinner and a movie so wanted to wear something comfortable. I definitely would recommend.

Steve Madden "Netty" Strappy Heels

I seriously adore these Steve Madden heels. I wore them with black leggings and an off-the-shoulder, oversized gray top. I think the shoes would look so hot paired with tight jeans and a black leather jacket. Such a great pair for going on a date or a night out with the girls! ;)

Nordstrom - Estee Lauder Free Gift with Purchase

My current liquid foundation is the Estee Lauder Double Wear in Shell Beige. My face is a bit lighter than the rest of my body so I love Shell Beige because it's slightly warmer than my skin tone and adds more color. Other foundations lighten and completely strip the color from my face but with Estee Lauder, I find my skin to have a nice dewy glow.

I stopped by the nearest Nordstrom to pick up a bottle and not only was the item 15% off but spending $45 will get you a free gift set!

The foundation was on sale for $33 but I also picked up a limited boxed set which includes a face primer, miniature foundation brush, and a night repair serum - bringing the total near $45 and qualifying me for the free gifts.

The gift set comes with trial sizes of the following:
  1. Perfectly Clean Creme Cleanser/Moisture Mask
  2. Resilience Lift Firming Face Cream
  3. Resilience Night Lift Firming Face Cream
  4. Advanced Night Repair Serum
  5. Sumptuous Mascara
  6. Pure Color Gloss
  7. Pure Color Lipstick
  8. Chic Cosmetic Bag
Honestly, my favorite thing about the gift is the makeup bag. I have gotten tons of free bags but none have been as cute as this one. I could even use it as a clutch for a girl's night out!

Nordstrom is great about offering free gifts with purchases so keep an eye out and do your research before you buy anything from your favorite cosmetic line. I almost always try to hold off and wait to buy my skincare/cosmetics during specials - the amount of stuff you get is really worth the wait!
