Purchases / reviews for the past week 2/19

I did a lot of shopping this past week. I was out pretty much every day. I keep telling myself to stop buying winter things and only buy spring, but I like the prices on winter things right now. I figure I wont have to buy things at the beginning of the season next year.

I got this at Zara for $14.99. It is so warm!

I got this ESPRIT sweater at bobs for $7.00. How do you pass that up?

A couple of sparkly things because I love my junkie jewels.

There are some great sales out there. I may do some more shopping this week. I usually hate going through sales racks, but if it is my mission to only shop sales, I usually don't mind. I don't like to shop in stores that are a mess either. It must be the whole OCD thing.

I went to the beauty supply for nail polish. I ended up with these three products.

This is a TIGI conditioner. I have used it before. I love it. It makes your hair very soft. I am dealing with winter hair dryness right now and this really helps. I have been putting my hair up in a ponytail and sleeping with this on the ends. A few days a week I will use it as a deep conditioner.

This is a leave in conditioner. I have used Schwarzkopf Q10 products before, but not this one. So far I really like it. Like I said, I am battling dryness right now and it is definitely helping. See how it says Time Restore? I wonder if I spray it on my whole body if it will make me look 21 again.

This is more of a reconstructer. It is supposed to reverse years of damage. We will see. I will let you know on this one, it is the first time I bought this.

I was at the mall and of course could not resist the makeup counter. I did want a new lipstick (like I really need another one). I always go to the Chanel counter to check out the new nail colors. OPI and Chanel are my favorite nail polishes. They last the longest and have the best colors.

I ended up with Hydrating Sheer Lip shine in color #52 Fetiche. Love it! I can use it like a gloss or fill in lips with a lip liner to make it a deeper color. It is very moisturizing. The color is beautiful. I have gotten so many complements on it already.

  Soap and Glory makes this gloss. I bought it once at Target and couldn't find it again. While I was in Sephora the other day I found it. I was very excited. It is that tingly kind of gloss and lasts a long time. I don't know what I like better, the actual product or the name. Sexy mother pucker.

I have had myself and my husband on a diet since November. I am missing my night time snack. I found this at the grocery store.

I found this. Zero fat and 110 calories. You make them with yogurt. No eggs or oil involved. I have to say i was skeptical, but they are pretty good!

Last but not least, if you read my blog you know I love plants. Every winter I lose at least one good plant. I lost one of my orchids last week. I had to replace it.

So that is pretty much a recap of my finds this past week. I did not even have one pajama day last week. I am hoping this week will be the same. There are some great sales out there. Get shopping!


  1. I love great shopping days! Especially when I have money. Oh yes - receptionist does not have children! Of course she doesn't. I don't have children yet, but I know that my future pets will never be the equivalent of my future children.

  2. I am what you call a SHOPAHOLIC! What saves me is I am the bargin shopper! I will never pay full price for ANYTHING!!
