So, it’s raining outside right now. FINALLY, Florida! A late night thunderstorm. Love me a good thunderstorm while I lay in my bed and relax. I have had a busy week so far, and I’ve done some shopping… like every other woman in the world… (Helloooooo VS Semi Annual Sale!) And since this is my blog, and I do what I want… I’ve decided to share some of my favorite things lately. I mean, all the YouTubers do it… so I can too. 😉 I shall start with the best $35 dollars I have spent all year. No Contest. Hands down….. That would be this kiddie pool. Seriously, photos cannot capture the awesomeness. First of all… it was $35 bucks, like how much can you expect from a $35 pool, right? WRONG. Amazeballs. There’s slide action, there’s a palm tree that squirts water, and it’s a blow up model (OBVIOUSLY for optimal jumping conditions.) My kids are in love. And I’m not gonna lie… laying out on that slide AFTER the babes are all tired out isn’t a bad gig either. That little squirty palm tree knows just how to play it so that you don’t melt your skin off mid tanning sesh.
Seriously peeps… Go get one. Tell Target I sent you. 😛 Speaking of Target… is it just me or are they seriously on top of their shoe game lately? These babies were on sale AND I had a $5 off coupon. sold. And obsessed. I want to go back and buy them all. I mean… they were just so cheap… and they make me feel all… “I’m so fancyyyy, you already knooooooow!” haha! Then… there is this little thing that Victoria’s Secret likes to call the “Semi Annual Sale.” Which is really more like watching herds of women fight over bins of underwear… aaaand its glorious. We got up early (definitely NOT one of my favorite things) just to get there before all the good stuff was gone. The mall’s parking lot was packed… but when we walked inside it was still a ghost town… just kidding, we weren’t the only geniuses who rolled out of bed at 8am and rushed to their local Victoria’s Secret. So now I feel a little less crazy. Ha! I will spare you all pictures of my hard earned bras and undies and instead mention these lovely steals. Ladies, if you haven’t used VS Body Butter before… you’re seriously missing out. I’ve loved this stuff for years… and I just keep going back for more. Its just thick and creamy and moisturizing and it was only $5! (Now I seem less crazy for getting up at 8 for a sale, yes?… Maybe?) Then there is the hot pink lipstick…which I also really like. But damn do I have some haters whenever I wear it! It’s just lipstick people!… and it honestly just makes me want to wear it more. 😛 I wore a different shade of VS lipstick at my wedding (compliments of Jessica Tackett) and really liked how moist and pigmented it was, so when it was on the half off table, I just went for some! I also picked up some clearance “tanning gel,” because once upon a time I had all kinds of free time to lay around in the sun and become bronzed and beautiful and whatever other nonsense my non-kid-having-self liked to do! But those days are long gone, and skin cancer is a real thing peeps. So are wrinkles. Whichever motivates you more. 😉 Is this weird? Whatever… like I said… my blog, my rules. I would first like to make clear that I was in fact, wearing shorts in these photos. Moving on… for $5, extremely effective. I kinda forgot to take the last picture until right before bed hence the weird shadows and angle. My bad. It didn’t even become patchy or wash off in the shower. It also isn’t stinky. I’ve tried sunless tanner from VS before and it was seriously rank. But this stuff smelled gooooood. 🙂 Another favorite lately. This dress. OMG. The BFF bought her this… and I could just die. I even bought her shorts in the same pattern because I love it so much. This. Mirror. I will say nothing else on the matter…. And last but not least… my new buffet table. Scored this baby on craigslist. and I am in love. I have been wanting to put something next to our table along this big empty wall for years. It was originally brown. Yikes. Eventually I’ll paint the mirror too, and find somewhere to hang it. Just. Ahhh. Love it! 😀 Okay. That’s all I’ve got tonight. Eeeeeep! 😀 XO
