I Shop, I Drop

*If you read nothing else in this post, make sure you scroll on down so you don't miss the fab giveaways happening around the blogosphere. I just found out I won a giveaway at Fashion for the Economically Challenged so you can be a winner too!!*

So, yesterday I shopped. And I think I did pretty well.

For my almost-21-year-old cousin, I got this cute little short-sleeved sweater. It looks black in the picture, but it's charcoal in person.

She wanted something a little different... so I dunno if she's going to like it or not. I'll e-mail her this pic later today and see if she likes it - we cousins are all about shopping and sticking together... if she doesn't like it, I'll keep it and find something else for her. That's fair, right?

For my 20-year-old girl cousin I got the cutest pearl studs at Macy's - but my picture turned out blurry so you're just going to have to imagine it.

My dad asked me to Christmas shop for myself so I picked up this sweater at TJ Maxx, not sure if I really liked it or not.. but since it's from TJ's I can always return it if I decide I don't want it.

So yeah, horrible picture. the lines down the front of the sweater are actually sequins, and the little belt/sash is satin on one side and velvet on the other. I'm not a huge fan overall, but this sweater is so nicely made you can tell it won't pill or fade - it's just nice. But in this picture it's kinda - blah.

Also, can we talk about how much I like Sephora's exchange policy? So do you remember how I tried TheBalm Hot Mama because I thought it could replace my beloved Nars Orgasm? And not only did I not like it... but eventually I started getting a wee little rash from the stuff? So I took my reciept and the blush back yesterday... and they let me exchange it for a brand new Orgasm. I'd heard you could exchanged opened product before but I would usually feel too guilty to do that... but I did, and I'm thrillled - I just had to pay the difference. And maybe I picked up another item or two.

Also, I just wanted to point out that I walked right past the Cheesecake Factory's Red Velvet Cheesecake. And didn't buy any!! Where's my award? (Oh yeah, it's in my fridge and it's called homemade red velvet cupcakes. Oops.)

Ok, and now: GIVEAWAYS! Go forth and enter. And hopefully win!!

  • The Bon Bon Rose Girls are giving away a gorgeous forever scarf.
  • xoxo Trina is giving away a gorgeous ruffled scarf... she is SO glamorous and I can only imagine that scarf will make you feel like a million bucks!
