No More Shopping, Ever

Well, I got off to an early start today, especially considering that it’s Sunday.  I woke up at 7:30 to the annoying sound of birds chirping outside my window and the dumb ass dogs across the street barking their faces off.  I silently thanked baby jesus that I did not roll in from a wedding at 2 am like my roommates, who were undoubtedly suffering through a hangover.  After a few minutes of laying in bed, I realized that I was wide awake and falling back asleep was not an option, so I threw off my covers and started my day.  Well first I put away laundry that had been sitting in the basket for a week, straightened my hair, and played with my new Urban Decay purchases.  Then I started my day.

My only real agenda was to get my grocery shopping done for the day, so I headed over to Trader Joe’s instead of going to Harris Teeter as usual.  50 minutes, and a cart full of groceries later I was ready to check out, only somewhat afraid of the damage I’d done.  Much to my delight, my total came in well under $100, and that includes 3 bottles of wine and an $11 container of gummy vitamins.  I’d forgotten just how inexpensive everything at TJ’s is!  I see a grocery store switch happening in my life.

I finished my grocery shopping, and was home by 10 am in a quiet house full of still sleeping roommates.  In desperate need of coffee, I retreated to my rooms bathroom to grind some coffee beans, in an effort to not wake anyone up.  That is how the rest of my morning has gone thus far, sipping coffee on the couch, and watching TV.  I’m kind of bored, is it too early to start cooking dinner?

As far as the rest of yesterday went, I dropped Dani and Adrienne off, and made my way to a nearly deserted gym.  I did 5 miles on the treadmill at about a 9:30 pace, followed by 1 mile on the elliptical and some weights.  Then I realized it was almost 4 pm, and my egg and cheese sandwich from breakfast was no longer in my stomach, and the copious amounts of coffee were starting to make me nauseous.  I knew I’d never make it through a few hours at the mall without some food, luckily my gym has a juice bar inside of it.  Weird green protein smoothie to the rescue.

It held me over through a few hours of shopping until dinner time.  As far as purchases for the day go, I spent a ton of money on Urban Decay makeup and then ended up ordering the previously mentioned pair of Steve Madden black boots.


These boots, in black


New fun makeup purchases:


24/7 Eye Pencil in Lust, Zero, and Yeyo

Eyeshadow Ammo Shadow Box

My friend Alexis has actually used this eyeshadow on me before, and I love all the colors.  I may have gone a little overboard, but sometimes you just need to splurge on some new makeup.  I also bought a new blush that’s a little less pink than the one I’d been using.  This morning I used Polyester Bride and Sin on my eyes, with a little bit of Lust eyeliner.  Love it!  Ok well I’m going to go try to find someone to play with, or some other way to entertain myself.  Have a great Sunday!


Shopping Saturday

Ever since moving to Virginia in November, there’s been something noticeably missing from my life.  Starbucks, and my bank account is sort of happy about the fact that I am no longer making a $5 daily withdraw from it.  Despite the fact that I haven’t been to Starbuck’s in months, my coffee intake has increased substantially.  You see, we have a coffee maker of our own, and buy coffee in bulk, and with my new addiction to Coffee Mate Cinnamon Bun creamer, I can’t get enough.  Example?  I’m on my third cup of the morning already.  I think I need an intervention, I buy the containers of creamer two at a time because I go through it so quickly.  It’s seriously amazing.

The roommates are off to a wedding today, and after I drop them off I’m heading to the gym for a long run and some weights.  Probably.  Then I plan on heading to the mall, doing some shopping, maybe get a mani/pedi and relaxing.  It’s going to be delightful.  My main shopping stop is Sephora, but I’m sure I”ll end up venturing into a few other places a long the way.  I am a shopping addict, I’ll admit it.  Speaking of shopping addict, here are some of the things I ordered from Victoria’s Secret last week.

I got the shoes in the nude color shown in the front, and the short dress in a pink color.  Obviously I look exactly like the models in both dresses :).  Or not even remotely a little bit, but whatever. Confession, I may actually be on the verge of purchasing a pair of black boots from Steve Madden right now, I told you I have a shopping problem.  Happy Saturday!
