Splendid Day

This was the BEST birthday! SO great! This is what I did, this is what I learned. I went to Crate and Barrel today and took a lookie lou at their sale stuff. June is the best time for sales, they were having there floor sample sale going on and I saw the most beautiful couch that I have been eyeing for a while. Behold.

It was 1/4 of the original price, only $530! That's right, no longer the original almost $2,000. A part of me still hopes we can get it, but by the end of this post you will think me a greedy grub worm for thinking that. Yes you will, just you wait. So I got a few things from C&B (spending a whopping 5 bucks) and then was on to something new.

My face has been sort of flaky and dry, and weird as of late. I went into some beauty store and was swept away by the helpful sales girl and walked out with some lovely smelling lotion that made the back of my hand feel rather nice so we will see how this works.
I had to return a bathing suit to J.crew and so I looked around there for a bit. I swear finding a bathing suit is killer! Any how I ended up getting this sweater I tried on long ago, but was loathed to pay full price for. And as we all know good things come to those who look in the sale section.... $16 yippee! The one I got is a sherbet colour. So cozy, why do I always want Winter things in the Summer?

Next I went on over to Sephora and got some stuff there (I had a gift card that had been sitting in my wallet for quite some time). I would not even mention this except I found the PERFECT lipstick while I was there, and it was half off. So take a look if you want at Napoleon Perdis. I got DeVine Goddess Lipstick in Nymphe. It is just the right shade of pink, not too pink, not too glittery, not too shinny, no too anything. It feels great on as well. I got some eye shadows too. great stuff. Love sales, love em. My guess is that with all the stuff they have at that store there are bound to be brands that don't sell as well, so out they go.

Oh my goodness are you sick of hearing all about my shopping spree? I really am not this bad all the time I just get cooped up in the house and then go crazy? But the best part about this part of the day is that between some gift cards I had the only money I spent was the $5 at Crate and Barrel. So there I am not as much of a spend thrift as you thought.

never sick of it- never! and most of what you got was on sale or gift card-- totally warranted. :)

Okay, so this is going to be a long comment. I can guarantee that already. First... introductions: I am Emily Pilling's friend who is Elizabeth's sister-in-law, so, I watch your post and quite enjoy it, however we really have never met. Anyway, I'm commenting on your "Wednesday" post. I love, love, love that picture of SF. You are quite the photographer. Is there anyway to get a copy of it or is that breaking some copyright rule? Anyway, let me know and keep snapping away.

Copyright? Ha! I will thank you for my husband, who took the picture, and say you have flattered him very much. I would be happy to give you a copy of the picture if you send me your email, or you can just take it off here (I think that is possible). I think MIke was going to photoshop some of the haze out of it. So an equally long answer to your question, yes of course you can have a copy!

oh what fun it is to shop. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BILLE!What a great gift your husband got you in the other post- do you love the MAC already? Mike you are goooooood. I was reminded of you this week because its mango season. I then thought of those yummy mangos we were scavengering and throwing rocks and rotten mangos at to get down off the tree on the way back from Waimea Canyon on Kauai about a year ago.- is scavengering even a word? Good times.

Bille said...

Oh Mango season! Another reason I miss Hawaii. That was such a great trip! I am loving this computer, I just need to remember how to use a Mac ;)
