Saturdays have turned into Raleigh Date Days. We like to get out of our smaller town and go to the big city. Everything we need is within a 15 minute drive while we are there! My sister recently told she and our parents went to Souplantation for lunch. Obviously, and unfortunately, I couldn’t be with them, so I asked JP if he would go with me to our local Sweet Tomatoes (same franchise, just different name).
Food was delicious and in a small way I felt like I was there with my family!
JP had some issues with his credit card due to the whole Target fiasco. 😦 Nothing happened to us, but we’re still waiting on a new card! Frustrating as it is, he didn’t even find anything he wanted to buy yesterday anyways. It was still fun being his sugar momma and paying for lunch 😉
I did buy some other things. Now, you may not know, but I have vowed to not buy anymore clothes (exception: running clothes.. Exciting News!!! I’ll explain soon) until my credit card is paid off! We are still making payments from our wedding last June and I want to get rid of it as soon as possible!
I wanted to decorate the guest room in hopes that eventually it will be staged as a nice backdrop for my YouTube videos (what very little I’ve done, but it’s getting better!). Here are my finds from Pier 1 Imports (the lantern) and World Market (everything else).
Cute right?! I’m hoping to get a nice table runner for the dresser and some pretty lights to hang around the mirror and I think I’ll be ready. Kandee Johnson inspired me with her collection on her dresser/armoir, but I just really love this color teal and the different shades. This whole collection probably cost me $40 when it was said and done. I got some good deals!
Another pet peeve of mine is how disorganized makeup can be! I had been struggling with how to keep my makeup easily accessible yet neatly organized. I love the way the acrylic makeup cases look but I didn’t love the price. Of course the ones I want are over $60. While looking for some moisturizer at TJ Maxx, JP found these makeup trays for a fraction of the price! Score! I paid $30 for both of these. It holds almost all my makeup and it’s neater than just being strung out over the counter.
Valentine’s Day is coming up in less than a week! Are you ready? Check out our Valentine’s Day Outfit blog post for cute outfit inspiration. I think I’ve narrowed down what I’m going to wear but I didn’t have a necklace that I wanted to wear. I guess that means a stop to Charming Charlie’s! I was so close to Charming Charlie’s after being at World Market that I HAD to look. I was glad I did! I hit up the clearance section and scored these beauties for under $40. These are 5 necklaces I snagged and took home with me. I picked out the two purple ones because of Pantone’s Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid. Check out the rest of the colors happening in Spring 2014.
We then stopped by Trader Joe’s and got a few of our favorite staple foods for the coming weeks and tried not to pass out from a food coma on the way home.
I hope you’re having a relaxing weekend and if you went out shopping scored some deals! Most of these photos I shared are from my Instagram feed! If you want to follow me on Instagram my name is: OnlyOneLoLo. Hope to see you there!
