I remember Oprah (yes, that's such a female reference) - but I remember her saying that her 40's were the best decade of her life. I am looking forward to it! I think my 20's were light hearted and ridiculous fun, and my 30s have been the hard knocks of life. (At least for me.) I am looking forward to 38 - my New Year. My unique New Year!
Today I decided to treat myself to a few goodies. You know I have suffered a few blows, and Valentines totally sucked ass. Yeah - I said it. But it did.
Again, my heart is full with all of the fabulous support you guys have given me. :-)
Well, not one to settle - I decided to be decadent today. Well - decadent in my way. lol (A broke person's way! LOL)
I woke up with a blinding headache. I think it is because all I ate for dinner last night was a little goat cheese and dark chocolate. ahhahaa. Yeah... not a smart move.
I got up, paid a few bills online (it's pay day) - and actually had a little chat with the egyptian. I asked a few questions, of course - now he is back peddling. Typical. C'est la vie.
Then I drove myself to target. Still a blaring headache - (no food yet) - I stopped by Starbucks. Don't you just love that they have Starbucks in a Target??? Well, I ordered a Cafe Latte and proceeded to shop for one hour. Oh yeah! I tried on a dozen tops, a dress. Picked up a rug - put it back. You know... stuff.
My favorite items I got from there were these:
You guys know I have been trying to Organic (in all ways) - and today I found some Organic make up remover!!! It smells so nice. It is 100% free of harsh chemicals, 100% free of synthetic preservatives, 100% free of parabens, 100% free of GMOs, 100% free of synthetic colors & fragrances and is 100% cruelty free! The smell is a mix of oranges and lavender - it is lovely!
FINALLY - I bought a make up case. Of course you don't know this, but I have random baskets full of my makeup. And I have a LOT of cosmetics. (I used to work in cosmetics (sales/make up artistry) during a short stint between jobs) - and FINALLY - I got a professional style container!
I also bought this super soft, black over sized blanket for the living room couch. It's just soooo delicious!
After my little trek to Target, still dying of hunger and blazing headache, I drove to Kohl's. I just don't give Kohl's enough love.. and there she was - with a massive sale - Buy one shirt at regular price (the one I picked was $38) and get one free. I just can't make this shit up! Here are my "spring" pics - flowy and femme!
They hang really cute on me (translation - slimming) and I like the blue in the one on the left. The one on the right is the "second one." I just grabbed it - I had to get something. I think with jeans, these will be very cute. After my little trek through Kohl's and almost passing out in the dressing room.. lol.. I drove to my favorite "bad for me treat" - a hot dog place called Sneaky Petes. They slogan: "The way Hot Dogs Should Be." Okay.. Okay.. it's not Nuway (from my hometown) - but is runs a close second. I was sooooooooo bad I bought a #7. Want to know what it was? Two chili cheese dogs, order of fries and of course - a diet coke. LOL
I drove home and ate those babies while I watched Kimora in the Fab Lane. I think eating that on an empty stomach was a BAD idea. I almost vomited. I decided to lay there on the bed and just digest.. then I changed clothes and headed to my PLAN B Spa idea. I went to my favorite Chinese Holistic Place and had a 1 hour table massage. Dear God in heaven, I thought my back would break. PAIN... They don't play - it's all acupressure and reflexology.. apparently I am in a lot of "trauma" as they like to say. I guess my chakras are screwed up or something. Imgaine that?LOL. That was my Zen moment.
I left there and stumbled across the way to an accessories store and bought some other things... I hope you likey!
These are my dainty flower ear rings. They are probably the size of the tip of your index finger. Love them!
My super cool head band. I think I will wear this with my dress to the Heart Ball in March! Give it that vintage flair!
I am totally wearing this Thursday. Another fab head band!! Did I tell you? The way to my heart is through accessories?? :-)
After that, I trotted over to Bath & Body Works and bought a little sumthin' sumthin':
Three fabulous "spring" scents - Sea Island Cotton, White Citrus & Cherry Blossom. I will smell like fresh laundry! LOL
Then I picked up two of my favorite scents - Eucalyptus & Mint candles.
Finally... I made one last stop before I went to Walmart for some items for my party:
I got a Very Berry Green Tea Smoothie (made with Splenda- total 211 calories) - Acai, Blueberries, Banana, Non fat yogurt and green tea.
Next? I need to finish getting the house ready for the party tomorrow - I am making myself a steak and then settling in for a little Netflix!!
See- retail and spa therapy brought me back! :-)
