This weekend, I finally got out to the shops again. Now, I am on a bit of a spending halt due to the Wisconsin house situation, but I have been having cabin fever! I have gone shopping with my friend, but that is more for her and not necessarily for me. So this past weekend, I got a chance to go to a few of my favorite places which include Saks Off 5th.
Well, I found a nice little deal on this cute pair of denim and black leather espadrilles by Rebecca Minkoff. Honestly, I had never seen them before but they must have been a popular summer shoe. Espadrilles can often be really hard and uncomfortable, but not the case with these beauties. They are soft and bend with foot movements. I absolutely adore them. I got them on a nice discount of about 65% off which made them even that much better.
Today was a wonderful day. The sun was shining and the air was warm. This was a gigantic welcome after the ice, snow, and cold the last few weeks. I had a few errands to run and wanted to look my best while doing so, so here was my makeup for the day.
Bobbi Brown illuminating finishing powder compact foundation in Warm Walnut 7.5. This is a new buy for me and I have been loving it.
Missy Lynn’s eyeshadow pallet – I just received this three days ago and I have worn it everyday.I used the the light and dark purples along with the bronze highlight color. This pallet is gorgeous and the shadows are very pigmented. I am not sure if I was expecting it to be soooo good, but it is worth more than the price (although I am happy it wasn’t to expensive.) There was really no fall out, and the colors show up as they are in the pallet. Sometimes I have had other purple shadows and they just look dirty or black. I can barely see the purple, but this shows up on my skin perfectly. Has anyone else tried this yet? I would love to hear your thoughts.
Mac’s Raizin blush – a long time favorite.
Too Faced Soul Mates blushing bronzer in Carrie & Big – Now, I admit that I am a sucker for a gimmick and if it has anything to do with my favorite television couples, it’s even better! So this bronzer joins my Gidget and Moondoggie nail polishes in my prized gimmick possessions. Oh, the product is not to bad either. 🙂
Clump Crusher mascara – this has become a favorite as well.
Milani’s Sangria lipstick – I can’t believe I have not worn this all winter. Milani lipsticks are my favorite from the drugstore and this color if beautiful.
Miss Dior’s Blooming Bouquet – I will be doing a post of my favorite fragrances right now. This is one of them. So soft and no at all overpowering.
This past weekend, I celebrated my best friends birthday. We had a blast. We enjoyed a boat ride on Lake Allatoona in a friends boat. I even got to drive it! I thought he had lost his mind when he asked us if we wanted to drive. I figured we would end up on some rocks somewhere, but alas we are safe.
After the two hour boat ride, we picked up gifts from her mom then headed to a concert at Chastain Park. Chastain Park is an open amphitheatre that patrons bring food and drinks to. It looks a little fancy to see people sitting at the provided tables or in the seats but the viewers bring little tables with them so they can enjoy their meal while watching the concert. It was super hot that day, so they gave everyone little hand fans as they came in the gates. We had a throw back concert, so we went to see Boys II Men and EnVogue. It was a nice concert, but HOT.
The next day, we went to an Atlanta Falcons game. Now, neither of us are sports fans, but we figured it would be a fun experience. It was. We had a blast and I was good and tired by the time Sunday came. Here are just a few, fuzzy pictures to share.
This past weekend was wonderful. Of course, I did a little shopping at The Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta. It was not my intent to purchase anything, but I had to exchange two items that I bought in the wrong size. After making my exchange, I did my normal route of stopping in a few stores to look in their clearance section and had a little lunch at Taqueria Tsunami. I had been wanting to try this place for a while and it was fantastic. I had the garden shrimp quesadilla which was so darn good that I debated getting another to go for dinner. Since it started to get busier with the lunch crowd, I passed on waiting for that. After leaving there, I passed the Converse store and went in there for a look. I have never owned a pair of Converse. I have always seen girls with them on and they look so cute sometimes. I had never seen a pair that I thought looked as cute on my feet until now. Yes, I purchased my first pair. See, I almost made it out of there without one single purchase. They are cute little grey/pink/yellow/white shoes. Of course, I nabbed them out of the junior section. My friend got a laugh out of that. She says whenever shopping for me, she just looks at what the teeny boppers are wearing. Ha!
After getting home, I was being super lazy after 8pm and laying in bed watching television. I decided that I did not want to miss the super moon. So as soon as it got dark, I threw something on along with my new pair of converse and went outside to see the moon. I walked out to my patio and could see nothing through the trees in the back of my house. Determined not to miss it and not to blow it off, I grabbed my car keys, hopped in the car to head toward the park near my house where certainly I would see it. Well, I didn’t have to go far. As soon as I turned south off my street, there it was. It was big, bright, beautiful. Honestly, it looked as though I could drive right up to it and touch it. Magnificent. I took pictures, but they hardly do it justice. I was just in awe at how big it actually looked. Funny enough, the further south I drove, the further it started to look. Eventually, I found myself not at the park, but in the parking lot of a Target just staring at it. Not surprisingly, there were other people doing the same thing.
Sunday was a day of cleaning, although I really should have been working on my final paper for school. I have four weeks to complete that so I had better hop on it. Anyway, that was my weekend. I hope you all enjoyed yours!
