I don't know why, but I feel like my weekend recently have been going by extremely fast. I'd look forward to my weekend all week long, and once the weekend actually comes, it'd be over before I knew it! I blame it partially on the football games that we've been going on Saturdays, especially now with the longer commute to school, I don't get much done at home on these football days. The good news is, our team scored 8 touchdowns this past Saturday and won yet again :)
Today we had our first rain of the season. I love how fresh the air smells after the rain. I was planning on staying at home all day today to cook some food, do laundry, clean up, watch a few tv shows and just relax. But earlier today, I found out that I had won Audrey's coupon giveaway -- a $50 off of $100 coupon for Old Navy, what a good deal right! Thanks so much sweetie for choosing me as a winner. I discovered Audrey's website recently, her site has tons of product reviews, tutorials, sweet deals announcements and more!
So the boyfriend suggested that we take a break from all the chores and go to the mall so I can shop for some fall clothes at Old Navy with Audrey's coupon! We went to our closest mall only to discover that their Old Navy moved away! By the time we found another nearby store and drove there, that store had closed just 5 minutes before our arrival! What a bummer! However I didn't go home completely empty handed from the mall today. I bought a mini Essie nail set that includes a gorgeous sheer pink polish called Pink is the Link, a bottle of sensitivity base coat that's formulated for even the most sensitive skin, and a cute pink crystal nail file. I've been really into nail polishes lately, and have always been curious about Essie polishes. I tried my new polish out tonight, and I love it! The formula goes on very smoothly. Even though this particular color is very very sheer, here I am with two coats of it and my nails still look like they had barely anything on. But I do love the polished and glossy look it gives my nails. I want to try more Essie polishes now!
I also stocked up on my Korres body butter and shower gels. I recently read in a newspaper article that it's the fig season. I've never tried fig scented products from Korres so I picked some up. Can't wait to try it tonight! I also picked up this Korres Little Natural Products set that includes body milk, 2 bath gels, a shampoo and a conditioner, which I thought would be a wonderful chance to try out different products from Korres, and also to bring along on travels.
Thanks to all you sweet girls for giving me suggestions on what Clinique products to try out! I've written all of your suggestions down and will be heading to the Clinique counter at Macy's soon once they start the GWP on Oct. 7 (Thanks Edna for letting us know about the good deal) :)
