This weekend I did an impressive amount of bargain shopping. I purchased a medley of fancy little goodies all under $10, but I’d say the $4.99 (previously $50) top I snatched up at Urban Outfitters in Boston takes the cake- especially since I didn’t waste any time debuting it that evening for a much needed girl’s night out. I also scored a whole smorgasbord of free pretties from Clinique thanks to their awesome promotion going on now at Macy’s. All in all, it was a successful weekend of deal chasing, sushi eating, wine sipping and friend visiting. Now onto a dance-packed week…first performance of the season tomorrow! Bring it on!
Hope you all had a fabulous Columbus Day weekend. xo.
Why, you ask? That little apartment hunt I mentioned the other day turned out more like my mom and I falling in love with the first apartment we walked through (2 car garage, 5 minute walk to work, hard wood floors, spacious rooms, $1000 a month split between my roommate and I…does it get any better?), and me signing my John Hancock on the dotted line! That’s right, after I meet the 94-year-old owner who lives upstairs tomorrow (hmmm…), it’s MINE! And I think that’s cause for a celebration, don’t you? That’s why I’ve made my first new-apartment purchase (online of course, I couldn’t wait the grueling 10 minutes it would take to drive to UO, but somehow waiting 5-7 business days is doable as long as I have the satisfaction of receiving the order confirmation email and the excitement of knowing that in just a week there will be a shiny new package on my front steps with my name on it)…and it’s an awesome astrological hand jewelry stand. That rhyme wasn’t planned. …..but maybe that one was. Oooookay, obviously I need to end this post and get some rest. But first, a list of new odds and ends to collect before moving into the new placey place:
mirrored tray. dresser- deep drawers not optional. sleek hangers. interesting lamps. funky rugs. bracelet dish. pretty mirror. subtle waste baskets. towel rack (rustic ladder?). gold spray paint- DIY project to follow. updated picture frames. bookcase/shelving. some sort of shoe storage apparatus. couch. or 2. window treatments.
+ so much more, I’m know it. The post-Labor Day Brimfield flea market cannot come soon enough!
