Ok, if you're a n-a-p blanket virgin, you need to run, not walk to Brookstone & purchase one of your own. I'm a blankey kinda girl. AKA: I cannot possibly fall asleep without a blanket up by my face & I can say that for me, this is going to be a staple. I got the one in the picture, the blue cuddle blanket, but I think I'm going to return it because it's a little small and I like to be immersed in the softness. The cuddle blanket would be perfect for a baby. The best part? They're on HUGE sale right now! Get one or seven.
Victoria's Secret Girl's Night Out Body Splash & the Bronzer Highlighter Trio
This entire fragrance collection at VS, Secret Moments, is just delicious. All of the scents are light & fun, but this one is my favorite. Check them out next time you're in. Great for an anytime, definitely not wanting to over do it, occasion.
The second thing I picked up at VS is this bronzer in Glitterati. I like a little bit of a sunkissed glow after my daily routine of tinted moisturizer evens me out & takes that away ... seems kinda silly now that I'm writing it but at any rate, this stuff is super pretty. At $14 a pop I felt like it was a little pricey but my Loreal from CVS is $14 too, & I don't buy bronzer but maybe once a year.
These three things are my favorite but I also got a couple shirts & a shirt & shorts for Drew. I always do this. If I just would've walked away from the men's department, I would've had a lot of money left over but of course I got sucked in & I think the brown plaid shorts & white alternative shirt I got will look great on him. I'm kinda secretly hoping they don't fit though so that I can return them when I go to Brookstone to return my blanket. Terrible? Probably.
Besides all of the glorious, compulsive shopping I did, I had a great time with Nikki. We were inseparable when we cheered together but now we're both big girls (kinda) & she has a real job so we don't get to hang out as much as I'd like to. There's no better way to catch up than over shopping trips, dinner & $7 dollar parking garage tickets, if ya ask me.
Nikki & I in the bathtub together at a cheerleading sleepover, naturally.
