I only picked up a few things - I've been trying to save money lately because I want to get an iPad soon. I'm also trying to save up enough money so that I can move out on my own. Chances are I could probably afford to live on my own right now in an apartment, but I really want to live in a house. I love being able to lounge around my yard in the summer, and I really want to be able to have my own garden :) For this to happen I really need to bunker down and STOP spending so much money. I've gotten better at buying fewer clothes that I really don't need, but my habit is still a bit out of control.
The mall by my house has just about anything you can imagine, so it's hard to not go in every single store. I made a stop in Forever 21 and picked up a few pretty necklaces. The long beaded one was $4.80, but the other 3 were only $2.80. They were definitely a steal! I know they aren't exactly high quality, and they probably won't last very long, but I couldn't pass them up. They will look cute with so many different outfits.
I also stopped in the Gap to check out the pink blazer that I had seen on their website. After trying it on and seeing that it was almost completely polyester (yuck) and not as cute as I was hoping, I decided to pass. I had a 30% off coupon so I used it on this cute sweater dress. It's heavy enough that I can wear it now with a pair of tights, and in the spring time as well.
My last stop was at Sephora where I finally picked up some Clean On Me shower gel. I fell in love with Soap & Glory after using Hand Food and I've been dying to try some of their other products. Unfortunately the Sephora by my house doesn't carry a large range of their products, but I did manage to find this. I can't wait to use it!
On to an exciting night of nail painting and cupcake making! I'll post some pics of the cupcakes if they turn out alright
