I go to Target at least once a week, if not more! I can't stay away from that place and it doesn't help that their store is so close by. Jeff and I have been awake since about 7 PM and wasn't feeling tired by the time morning rolled around so we decided to grab a quick breakfast and walk around Target. We picked up some ice cream, iced tea, beach towel, and this travel brush set I wanted to share with you guys!
It's by Sonia Kashuk, and I think it's a limited edition summer brush set of some sort. It came with this clutch to carry it in as well. The original price was $25 and it was on sale for $13, so I snatched it up. The wooden handles are really cute and summery! I think it was a funny coicidence that I decided to wash my makeup brushes this morning so I tried these ones as soon as I got home. I really like the pointed foundation/concealer brush; it's unlike any brush I have at the moment. Yay!
It's such a beautiful day out! But I'm going to take a nap for a couple hours before work~
On Sunday morning, Jeff and I drove down to Hampton Beach in the wee hours of the morning, which was pretty nice because there is usually mad traffic! We walked along the shore and laid in the sand reading magazines. I was hoping to tan a little but it was too breezy for me, so we ended up walked around the boardwalk shortly after. None of the restaurants were really open yet but Jeff bought me some shorts and a Hello Kitty beach towel and then we played some arcade games. As more people started to show up, more shops opened and we got some fried dough and slush puppies! We debated going back onto the beach, but it wasn't much warmer so we just decided to get some fresh seafood!
We went to Brown's, of course! Got the seafood platter with lobster and fresh steamers! It was delicious.
After eating, we decided to pick a random mall in New Hampshire to drive to and settled on Rockingham, which claimed to be the biggest mall in the state. Pretty good size, but it's just like any other mall! I bought a dress from H&M that I wanted a while ago and it was finally on sale for $20 from $40. And then I got sucked into buying some stuff from The Body Shop.
Good day, I'd say. We came home and passed out for hours considering we didn't sleep the night before!
I feel like recently I only blog when I go shopping! I went to the mall yesterday to do an exchange and picked up a couple new, random things.
First thing I bought a base/topcoat polish cause I ran out. I decided to try this one by Sally Hansen cause they make pretty decent polishes. I also picked up this cute mini Orly polish because it was on sale for $1.
I decided to check out the VS Semi Annual Sale, but I hate when there are hoards of old ladies scouring the bins. I did a quick walk through and picked out a body spray and also bought one for a friend - why not, it was only $3.75.
Lastly I ordered a couple things from MAC online. It was a spur of the moment thing because I've actually never tried anything from MAC before! Anyways, I got their Strobe Cream in a travel size and the Viva Glam Gaga II Lipstick by Lady Gaga.
Jeff also bought a couple of t-shirts and caps for the Bruins' Stanley Cup Championship. I'm planning on giving one to my dad for Father's Day!
Yesterday, Jeff and I celebrated our three year anniversary! I had planned on blogging about it last night, but I didn't feel so well :( So I'm doing it now!
We didn't plan anything extravagant, so we slept in! When we got up it was only to get ready for dinner reservations Jeff had made at Oceanaire, which was recommended by his sister. Originally the reservations were for 7, but we were too hungry to wait! Everything was very nice and it wasn't too fancy, which I actually prefer. We ordered the crab cake, king crab, clam chowder, gazpacho, stuffed shrimp with linguine, rib eye steak, baked mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, and the baked alaska! A lot of food...! And check out the personalized menus they gave us to bring home!
I wish the weather was nicer, but it was kind of chilly! We decided to go see Hangover 2 and had to wait like two hours for the next showing...and the movie was kind of disappointing. Oh well. We actually saw the original Hangover on our first anniversary so that's why we chose it. Haha.
Then we went home and I passed out because my head was killing me!
It felt like fate when I saw this dress today. The first time I saw it while shopping a few weeks ago, I didn't think it was worth the $50 price tag so I held off. I even went online and contemplated buying it when it was marked down to $40. But I didn't. Last week I randomly decided to see if it had went on sale yet, and to my surprise, it was now $20! But then, they didn't have my size left, so I left empty-handed once again. Today I decided to give it another go when I was at the mall and it was well worth the wait - they had my size and was now $15. I don't know why I liked this dress so much, but it made my day :)
P.S. Excuse my ugly face and pose - I usually never try things on in changing rooms but I couldn't decide which size to get.
Because we failed at going to IKEA yesterday, we went today! Of course I had their Swedish meatballs for lunch, as did Jeff. We picked up some organizers and random stuff. We stopped by the mall after but I didn't buy anything since we were just there a couple days ago. Jeff found this restaurant in Jamaica Plain that we went to eat after which had good service and atmosphere. The food wasn't bad either, but it wasn't anything extraordinary. Oh and it's called Canary Square. Some snaps from my iPhone - cheese-covered fries, mussels, haddock, & baked mac and cheese!
Today Jeff and I wanted to go to IKEA, but after he drove all the way there, we realized the internet had lied to us about their hours. How sad. So we just ended up going to the Target next door, whose hours are always good. Got a couple things for my cousin in Canada, and a makeup organizer and new eyeliner for myself.
Afterward we went to eat at Not Your Average Joe's. We've been to the one in our town, and didn't really like it, but decided to give it another try. Disappointing again - it's average.
I had the day off today, so I thought I'd blog real quickly before it gets late. I woke up late yet again, but it can't be helped when you go to bed at 6 AM every day. The result of summer. Jeff and I went to the mall, and I bought another pair of shorts and a dress. No photos though cause I'm lazy.
That's all for today.
Oh and check out my older sister's new blog here :)
