This past weekend was tax free weekend out here in Texas. So I decided to loosen my purse just for a little bit and buy some clothes. Here is my haul video:

I also have accumulated quite a bit of makeup from MAC over the past week or so. I recorded a video for it, I just need to edit the video. I will post it up in the next day or so.

I hope y'all had a good first day of class for those who went back to school this week :)
