Today, we've got a huge post for you. I shopped yesterday (like a mad woman) and picked up a bunch of stuff that I'm just so excited about. We've got some jewelry, some color, some house stuff... even a tip or two.
So, to start, I picked up this really cool necklace at Burlington Coat Factory for $2.98!!! I've been wanting something soft and delicate, but still enough of a statement so as not to be bleh.
Isn't it so pretty? I love it!! I wore it today and am in total love!! I even got a compliment when I was at Starbucks picking up my morning addiction coffee. It was such a great price, less than three bucks and I know it will last as I treated it with some clear polish.
Not too bad for Burlington. I'm actually starting to really enjoy shopping there for little things like accessories and belts. Sometimes the clothes aren't too bad either as they on occassions have Michael Kors and J Crew.
So, onto the next and here is where we deviate from clothes, fashion and beauty stuff.
I have company coming in this week (so excited) so my house has got to be spotless. I was at a friends house a couple of months ago and she had the coolest hand soap ever. I quickly went out to Target and bought it. Well, as I was in Target yesterday, I saw that they had the dish soap in the same brand and as I was out (shocking) I picked it up.
Mmmm, kay. Now, what the bottle says - "Uncomplicated products for a clean and happy home. Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day. Aromatherapeutic Household Cleaners. Mrs. Meyer's clean day provides hard-working, naturally occurring ingredients and essential oils that are tough on dirt and grime, yet gentle on your home and the earth. The basil herb has a cool, crisp scent that is said to revive the senses, clear the head and calm the nerves."
What Crystal says - awesome products, leaves dishes clean, smells great, in a pretty gorgeous bottle with a cute vintage label. I'm sold. Order me a pallet full.
Really, I like this product. My hands don't feel nasty after I wash the dishes. The smell is amazing and so different that it has me excited to do the dishes. It does work. I noticed that it really did cut through the grease and general icky-ness that accompanies dishes. I think that they also have this in laundry detergent. I will probably have to check it out.
The price is a little higher than normal dish soap ($3.99 for Mrs. Meyer's vs $2 for Dawn) but I think it's worth it.
Another product I picked up was at Bath and Body Works. It's getting closer to fall and since we aren't in NY, I wanted to recreate the smell of our house in Saratoga here in Sarasota. Usually in the fall I buy the Creamy Nutmeg room spray and wallflowers. This year they apparently don't have them when I want them yet. So, I picked up three sampler candles to see if I can find one that is semi close in scent.
All three candles smell great in their containers, so we will see how they smell when they are burning. I'm hoping (maybe foolishly) that the three smells combined will be close to what I like. They were 3 for $5, so that was a pretty great deal. If the smells are close I will be going back on Wednesday and picking up the scents in the wallflowers (6 for $24 or 4 for $20). I will also probably pick up Kitchen Spice in the large 3 wick candle.
Ok, back to the fashion and beauty. I also picked up these earrings at Forever 21 to replace my favorite flower earrings.
I love, love these earrings. The look was just what I was going for - simple, neutral, with just a dash of glamour. They were only $3.50 (deal!!) and match just about everything I have. They are great earrings for everyday and.... if I lose one (doubtful) I won't be depressed because they were less than 5 bucks. Don't you just love F21 jewelry and accessories? I do!!!
To close it out, I've been obsessed about this one color of green. I'm dying for a pair of shoes in the exact shade of green as this bottle. Oh and a cardigan too.
So, if you happen to see either one of those items in Extra Dry Tradizione Autentico Vermouth, let me know!!! Happy Shopping, ladies!
