In the Deep Mid-Winter Haul

I have been known to spend a pretty penny on a few items on various occasions, one could say that I enjoy to indulge in various splendours, like clothing and make up, but lately I’ve been feeling a pinch (obviously, considering lack of employment) but also because I don’t really need anything. I need notebooks, to which I have yet to buy much of, and I need oatmeal, but that’s about all I need right now, and so buying things has become relatively obsolete since before Christmas. This week has brought some new finds however, and as I spent Thursday in a small but warm and cosy shopping mall I decided to spend a little on myself and not worry about it.


Here’s what I found.


Zara Jeans. $11.00
Was that a double take I sensed? Yes, I was shopping through Zara, and yes I picked up a pair of jeans, but in the sale section. Tey fit me perfectly, they are comfortable and not super tihgt, I do not wear jeans very often but when I do I want them to be comfortable and these do the trick. Happy to now own something fancy but also cosy, just the way I like it.

Forever 21 Dress and Make Up Bag, $30.00 ish
This Forever 21 was bigger and more variety than the one near my house, and so we spent a good amount of time inside it. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular but have been wanting a white-lace dress or skirt of some kind, and so this fit the bill. I love it, and there is a dip in the back which is the best kind of dip. The makeup bag was not essential but fun, and it came at the end of the shopping time awhile at the checkout to which I am a big sucker for, so it kind of had to happen.


IKEA Candles & Holder $8.00
They smell like fresh green apples, the holder holds all kinds of sizes, I think this is sort of a given.

These are the things that came home with me, but while shopping I noticed that my Tiffany dog tag which was given to me in a special way by my parents for my highschool graduation nearly five years ago had fallen from my neck somewhere along my trying ons and walking. I searched everywhere all over the mall with a lovely and patient friend to eventually find it hanging down my back from my bra strap. Thank heavens, man, was that a scare, shopping is always eventful.

We also went to IKEA for lunch, meatballs and mashed potatoes, I don’t think it gets any better.

What have I learned from all of this? That it is important to appreciate yourself and friends once in a while, and do something for yourself. Take a little time, work a little retail magic, and make yourself smile, because alot of the time we skip over that. Also always wear your necklaces the prpoper way, don’t get creative with that stuff, its too expensive to haev falling around on an escalator or something.

I hope you’re having a lovely day, and I will see you on the flipside laterrr.
