decluttering...my mind

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

I've been at a loss this week on exactly what to blog, so it's one of those cluster posts where anything goes...I'm sorry, forgive me in advance please!
1. Ever have a random product that changes your life in a weird way? Glad Press and Seal Wrap, I bow down to you...you actually STICK to baking pans and Pyrex, making it easy peasy to transport homemade dishes and such-seriously, this has changed my life and if you don't have a roll, stop drop, and roll to your local supermarket to pick some up!
2. Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic are having 30% off site wide...if you're on a spending hiatus, don't venture to the website, but if you're looking for fun fall pieces, hop on over ASAP! I bought a few fun pieces the other day for Caroline and myself and can't wait for those boxes to arrive on my front door.
3. I had my first taste of Pinkberry on Sunday night...I headed to my favorite yogurt shop-Sweet CeCe's-right after dinner, yet discovered it was closed early for the night=boo. So, I thought I would try something "new". To be honest, I wasn't a fan. A lot more pricey for a smaller cup, stingy on the topping portions, and I actually like fixing my treat myself. Sorry Pinkberry.
4. On Monday, it rained like cats and dogs, so CC and I decided to head out to Costco and do some bulk shopping...let's be honest, as a family of three, we don't buy in bulk for most items, yet when it comes to coffee beans, cheese, meat, and baked goodies, count us in! We did find the cutest foam alphabet activity mat and peanut was so excited to test it out as soon as we got home.
5. I'm heading to the salon today to get rid of these roots! I need to add in some extra color for fall, and I am thinking lowlights are just what the doctor ordered... I wish I had the guts to cut off the mane and do something fun for the fall/winter, yet it seems that I get nervous every time I think of trying a brand new 'do.
6. Anybody finding any fun must-have nail polish colors for this season?? I am at a loss these days...I usually stick to my normal colors: Essie Chinchilly/Mink Muffs, OPI You Don't Know Jacques/OPI Red, but I think I need to try something fun and fresh...shoot me your new hits if you have a winner!

  3. Love the little activity mat and you're so right about Pinkberry. Except for the salted carmel fro yo...where they put some actual salt on top. It's REALLY good! ;)

  4. Natasha, I couldn't agree with you more about Pinkberry -- every comment you made about it, I was like "Yes. Yess! YES!!!" Total agreement.

  6. The big sale at Gap & Banana Republic sucked me right in. I couldn't resist that adorable polka dot dress either. And Piperlime has everything 20% off. I ordered some cute Pediped's for Blaire. I swear, she's far better dressed than I am these days!

    Enjoy your hair appointment. A few minutes alone is such a luxury, isn't it?

  7. I love these kinds of posts! Its the regular everyday stuff that can be so fun to read!

    I like the Essie Fall collection, specifically Skirting the Issue and Miss Fancy Pants.

    I've got OPI Brights Power on my toes right now and its a nice orange color for Fall.

    Happy Mon!

  14. Ugh I got those emails from GAP and Old Navy the other day and I'm trying to stay away from the website because I know it will only end in disaster if I even sneak a peek!

    For fall nail colors I'm LOVING the new Essie collection - I'm currently wearing Recessionista (a deep burgandy-ish) and last week I had Miss Fancy Pants which is a fantastic neutral! Stylenomics is a fun one too... if you want to be bold and wear a really dark green!
