Now ... on to more important things. Like my current love affair with Big Lots. I got this Modella polka dot train case there yesterday for $3. It even has compartments for your make-up brushes. Perfect size to fit in your purse, too. Love! They had several sizes and patterns to choose from. Who knew?
I also got this St Ives In-shower Exfoliating Body Polish in Shea Butter & Oatmeal. It's supposed to gently exfoliate and cleanse to leave your skin smooth and irresistibly soft . We'll see, I haven't used it yet. I love their shea butter and oatmeal lotion, so I have high hopes. Only $2.50, so if I don't like it, oh well.
The neph's 4th (cannot believe it.) birthday is next Saturday. He is obsessed with taking my kitchen utensils and pretending he's a chef. I got him this play kitchen set in blue for only $35 bones:
Last but not least, I spotted some e.l.f. goodies! I have never tried their nail polish, so I got their Summer Ready collection for $4.50. I've heard their polish isn't exactly fab-o, but I'll be the judge and def report back. It's cheap, so I doubt it'll be long lasting. And you know how I feel about cheap nail polish:
So that about sums up my Big Lots splurge. Here is a link to all of Big Lots' current clearance merch if you want to take a gander. I am thinking I need one of these $99 accent chairs for the new lair. Perfect for my soon-to-be vanity area, don'tchathink?
Tonight I'm having girls wine night at my apt to craft two PinkLouLou veils (#veilsweatshop) for Bachelorette parties I have coming up. Wish me luck because I need it. I'm too embarrassed to show you the only other veil I made a few years ago. Let's just say when I showed PLL, all she said was, "at least you tried." That bad.
Also, I have a visitor staying with me this weekend ... my gorgy cousin, Sierra, who is in town from Houston. I mean, don't hate her cause she's beautiful cause I do:
OHMAHWORD (& thank gawd)... TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO VOTE for moi for CBS Dallas Most Valuable Blogger!!!!!!!!! I appreciate all of your support more than you know. You bargainistas have been ahhhhmazing and it makes my heart ridiculously happy. I've already got a blonde army ready to stalk CBS if I don't win. Watch out & cross your fingers because I don't want things to have to get ugly. (I kid.)
