Totally random but are you LOVING my new Sketchers?
Pink and floral oh my! I’m so in love at the moment!
Ok, Ok…back to your regularly scheduled beauty babblings from your dear, old Muse!
Seems you were treated to some Musings this weekend even though I wasn’t around! I came back and noticed my Too Faced post was up! I was puzzled for a second how the heck it got posted but turns out I had scheduled the post date as the 29th instead of the 30th! Eep! So you got some Monday morning Musings on a Sunday instead! Nice for you, a mystery for me for a second! You now know my dirty little secret….I have tons of posts already written and scheduled to go! I’m telling you about this because I have quite a lot of comments to get through so I didn’t want you think I was posting entries and ignoring you! I’ll be replying to each of you shortly!
This is kinda sorta a different style of post for me today. I rarely write posts about weekends, vacations, life, etc….although some of you have expressed a keen interest in seeing photos from my vacations and such I sincerely doubt you come here to read about me, my life, and such! You do however come for the great cosmetics I’m sure hehe!
I personally don’t want to bore you to tears about the details of my life or what I do on weekends and such however today I thought I’d slap some pics and such up from my little getaway in Atlantic City this weekend. This does have to kinda do with cosmetics which is why I decided to do the post!
I spend 5 out of 7 days behind a desk at work so when the weekend hits I like getting out and enjoying myself in a major way! Wahooo!
If you’ve never been to Atlantic City it’s basically the New Jersey version of Vegas just alot smaller. It’s a ton of different shops, casinos, clubs, restaurants, etc…all located on a huge strip of boardwalk complete with beach and ocean.
Recently they even added a ton of outlet shops a little ways off the boardwalk which is fab as you know I really love shopping! They have a slew of posh shops located at a mall on the boardwalk called The Pier Shops so if you’re looking for LV, MAC, Lush, etc…you’d find it here!
However, if it’s cheap you seek you can walk a few blocks down Michigan Ave and confront yourself with sincere shopping paradise such as the Banana Republic Outlet, Lancome Outlet, Converse Outlet, Etc…..
They have some amazing deals which are hard to pass up on! I was really selective about my purchases this weekend however I still managed to do some damage and came home with some great stuff from the Fall Collections plus loaded up on shoes, sneakers, clothes, etc….!
I won’t be showing any of the Fall goodies I got quite yet however I will show you some of the freaking amazing deals that I seen about around!
Behold Glorious Cosmetics on Sale at the Lancome Outlet (If some pics are blurry it’s because I took them in a rush as the SA’s don’t appreciate you walking around snapping photos in the store):
Can someone shoot me? Is that the Destiny Cube I see for 4 for $40 bucks? How obscene! The Muse loves hers but didn’t pay $10 bucks for the bloody thing! Revisit my review of the Lancome’s Mystery Game Collection by clicking here!
Rows of yummie Converse in fruity shades! Oops blurry pic! SA is in the back of me wondering what the hell I’m doing! Turns out he was sweet even offered to take a pic of me in the aisle with the sneakers…hmmmm…no thanks that’s a bit too far!
I ended up hauling five pairs of Converse for $120 USD! Plus no tax! Loves it! I didn’t take a picture but I got a really awesome soft aqua pair that are simply yummie! They had tons for $19.98 USD which is a considerable discount as they normally range from $40 and up depending on style. I have 150 pairs to match every outfit already but I sincerely couldn’t resist! It’s the inner geek in me that demands I wear a pair of Converse even with a business suit!
Below are just some miscellaneous pictures I took! Hope it’s not too boring!
The Shore (You can literally see how humid it is! Yak!)
I’m worrying and I’m wanting……soooooooo…………
My nerves are a bit shot today. And I’m feeling worried and anxious. When I feel worried and anxious I shop.
My latest insane purchase, Miss Dior Patent Peep Toe Pump:
Excuse me while I sign off my soul to the devil! Hmm..maybe I won’t have to sell my soul to the devil…I’ll just sell off unimportant organs…heart…..kidneys….a lung or two!
Please make cheaper shoes!
You know that adventure we take every season into the darkness of our closets? The ones where we pull out all our winter clothes and make room for our spring and summer ones?
Well this year during my plunge into the darkness of my closet I had told myself…promised myself….that I’d not buy another pair of shoes for a really long time! As I tore through my closet I came upon shoe after shoe after shoe after shoe….I have enough for everyone in the US by now and maybe a few extra pairs for people living in Europe!
This weekend I took Mai to the Palisades Mall and my strong will to not purchase any shoes…somehow…left me!
I’m thinking that since they are cute shoes I haven’t REALLY broken any promises to myself right? I mean technically if it’s cute that eliminates the need for willpower and any promises made are void!
My weekend haul:
Soooooooo Sexy! These are my total fav of the lot! I have a similiar pair but these have more strap to ‘em!
A perfect size 7! Very geeky shoe moment but I adore these! Will go perfect with my “There’s no place like 127.0.0.1″ T-Shirt
