Friday is the one day that if I do any shopping, I’m always extra excited about it. I don’t know why but it gives me a high… then I come down after the realization that I am a shopaholic at heart. Let’s start with what I actually bought on Friday.
I went to Nordstrom to get Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Make-up. My friend tried it out, and when I was walking around the mall with her I picked up a sample. I’m not a wear make-up everyday kind of person so I tried it the night we went out to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Through 3 hours of dinner and about another 3.5 hours in the club I was sold on this product. What impressed me the most was that in the club, as I was wiping the sweat from my face, I didn’t see the product smeared all over the tissue! And at the end of the night, my face still looked like it did when I left home. I probably should have used the sample up but I figured I’d just buy it and I’ll have it to wear for all of the upcoming parties for the season.
While I was there I had an idea of what I wanted to get as a gift for a make-up junkie friend so I was walking around exploring my options. After I sorted her gift, I headed up to BP (Brass Plum – the Junior section of Nordstrom) just to have a look around. I bought the beige scarf with the silver running through it, and as I was at the counter I saw the other two scarves in a bowl by the register. I asked the cashier the price, and when she told me both were $8.99 each, I told her to ring me up! I told you, I have a problem. The beige and pink are infinity scarves and the other one is a regular long scarf. I’ll try to post pics of how I wear them, even though I’m a plain Jane
with a hint of style :P.
Now even though I didn’t buy these shades on Friday, they were delivered on Friday so I’m throwing them in. Apart from all of the gifts I ordered Thanksgiving week (before Thanksgiving day and Black Friday), I think this may be considered my Black Friday deal as I got them 50% off. They’re Burberry shades and I was smitten by them and had to get them. My go-to pairs of shades have been Ray Bans (Wayfarer and Aviator style in brown) but as a person who loves variety, I’ve been on the hunt for another pair of not brown shades to add to my collection that I adore and aren’t just for what is in style or everyone has been wearing. I need my items to suit me. My husband isn’t in love with these because of the size but he said they look good. (Sidenote: He calls himself a “fashionasta” and he advises me sometimes on what to wear. It can be very entertaining.) With that said, I’m keeping them.
I guess if I’m doing a blog like this I need to work on my photo clarity. I used my iPhone to take these out of sheer laziness but I’ll work on getting better photos and a better camera as soon as possible.
Just For Laughs:
My husband (please excuse the bush on his face) hijacked my old sunglasses and he’s trying to put on his best Steebie J face (Stevie J from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta). But here I am in the sunglasses shown above :).
