Lately, I haven’t felt like shopping all that much.
I’m still looking, but nothing’s really striking my fancy.
All of these earrings from J. Crew fit the bill of like-but-not-enough-to-buy.
The lucite and gold ones are my favorite.
Please, please tell me that no Muppets were harmed in the making of these Anya Hindmarch bags.
I did almost all of my holiday shopping online during the Black Friday – Cyber Monday weekend, and naturally, many of the purchases were in the From Me to Me category.
The deals were just too good to pass up.
Anthropologie had a 30% off sale going on, which basically made me dizzy.
I’d been in one of the stores a few weeks prior and snapped three pics of things that caught my eye:
From top to bottom:
- A jeweled faux fur infinity scarf that I absolutely do not need
- An over-the-top pair of pom-pom slippers that I need even less than the scarf
- The World’s Best Keychain
I hemmed and hawed over my order and ultimately picked up several of their signature Capri Blue candles (seriously, this is what makes your house smell like an Anthro store, and this is an entirely good thing), a gift book for someone, a Darphin skin care set for me that turned out to be for people with skin redness and not anti-aging (Sigh, should have read that more closely), several small and adorable lip balms and hand lotions to give as gifts, and the fabulous keychain shown above.
Birchbox also had 25% off, and this was tough because both of the items I bought were in the luxuriously unnecessary category, but the deal could not be missed.
These Oribe hair products smell great, but they are ridiculously expensive. Getting this set for 25% off made it easier to click “Buy.”
The Oribe Gold Lust set contains shampoo, conditioner and hair oil – all of which smell divine – and is a $139 value. Birchbox sells the set for $110, but with 25% off, I was able to get it for roughly $82. Now that I type this, it still seems ridiculously expensive.
The other thing I ordered from the Birchbox sale was a Foreo Luna. I’d tried this skin care device during a facial a few months ago and loved how clean it made my face feel. I have an old Clarisonic brush that I use but I don’t like how gross the brush heads get and how it needs to be recharged with increasing frequency the older it is. The Foreo is made of silicone and easier to clean, also no charging required.
Another purchase was from the decidingly-less-luxurious-but-my-most-frequently-shopped store, Target.
There were so many different deals going on at Target that weekend, and I found several things for MGM (10) and Trixie (8).
This was in the Juniors department, but I got an XS for Trixie. Considering her bear-like growls and attitude in the morning, this was perfect:
Regularly $17.99, it was on sale for $10. But then look! Next to it was something on sale that called to me:
Oh, heck yeah.
This soft hoodie was only $12 and goes so well with my new keychain.
‘Tis the Season.
I had an unexpectedly quiet schedule yesterday and used the time to cross off several errands from my To Do list, including a luxurious, extended Target Run.
Normally I am frantically sweating my way through the aisles, but yesterday I had time to slowly browse through all of the goodness that is Tar-zhay.
One of the first things I tossed into the cart were these sticky notes:
Trixie (8) is going to love these rainbow and unicorn notes. The mini pads can mark things as “Magical,” “Awesome” and “Amazing.”
(I couldn’t find them on the Target site to link; argh).
This Cat and Jack girls’ shirt was also immediately in my cart. The only downside is that it doesn’t come in adult sizes, or Trixie and I could dress as twins.
I’m not exactly sure if this is a planter or a desk accessory, but I’m going to use it to store my fancy pens at work:
And finally, a jar of ponies. Because! A jar of ponies!
Some are even glow-in-the-dark winged unicorns:
Too cute to handle.
P.S. My Target list was only four items long and I left with a $177 tab. Sigh.
Target just launched a collaboration with BaubleBar, and with almost everything less than $25, there are some pieces too cute to resist:
I have a feeling these are going to go fast.
There’s something so retro and fun about these SJP “Tartt” Mary Janes.
Zappos has them for 20% off.
