Charleston Thrifting

i love thrift stores

Yesterday my mum wanted to go to Charleston, and do a little shopping. Something kept telling me to go to this one Thrift Store; the last time I was in Charleston (dropping the boyfriend off at the airport), something told me to go in the thrift store, but it said not until your with your mum. And when I say "something told me", I'm referring to my gut.. I guess it's my gut talking to me.
Anyways yesterday we were running late, we were near the Outlets which is in one direction, and the Thrift Store I wanted to go to, was in the completely opposite direction. We hit traffic.. and the time was clicking. But I wasn't in any rush, which is unusual. I just said to myself, if it's meant to be there, it will be. Well luckily we got there and had thirty minutes to look around. As we walked to the back of the store, my mum spotted these Vintage bowls that she loves, a set of three, (in Pennsylvania, each one of those bowls go for $22- and up)! She got hers all for under $7! Great deal, huh?
Well she picked her bowls up, moved a few more feet, and found an old Vintage dog, a few more feet, she found an even bigger one! She has a few in her bedroom, she likes to put her pearls all over them, they look so French! I think each one was under $2.. they are pretty cute!
I guess that feeling I got was right, it wanted my mum there so she could find her bowls and doggies!

Thank goodness it's Friday!
And I am definitely enjoying it!
I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend!

Let's indulge shall we

Why is when your trying to loose weight, unhealthy food, bad food, fattening food, somehow appears in the kitchen? I have only been eating fruit and veggies, the only bad food I have eaten is .. 1. Two handfuls of Candy Corn, 2. A bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal (at 10pm! eeek! Tv food binge time), and 3. A handful of Jalapeno Sun Chips driving home one night, didn't eat dinner, so I ate chips instead. Other then that, I have been good...
Yesterday, I went with my mum to run some errands, we went grocery shopping, she bought the guys chips, and my brother ice cream (but for some reason, I wont go after ice cream anymore). Even the chips I'm like ehh, I'll stay healthy an eat a juicy Apple instead. But on the way home, she was like "let's get some ice creams at Dairy Queen!" ... Nah mum, "yes yes yes!" she replied.. " okay fine let's do it", I said! .. so we both got medium size ice creams, hers was dipped in chocolate, mine was covered in sprinkles. I decided to take pictures to show you all just how big, beautiful, tasty, and fattening this ice cream was, until I noticed something on my hand, it was my ice cream dripping away thanks to this 90 degree weather! Let's just say, I have never licked anything that fast! (Okay did that sound perverted or ... yeah). It was really really really good! Sometimes, you just have to indulge don't you? You can't always deprive yourself..
So thanks mum for that huge Ice Cream Cone!

What's your weakness when it comes to food?

I hope others don't start their Monday like this!

So this is how I started my morning..
 I was cleaning my Guniea Pig (also known as Chloe' Cupcake Monster), I look over, and I see my brother toturing Chloe'; he was burrying her in her own litter!
But yet, she still loves my brother..
all I can say is...... boys.
I sure am going to misssss the hell out of him when I move!
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
I hope everyone have a great Monday!

Saturday finds

As you know, every Saturday, my mum and I go to yard sales.
 We haven't really found anything 'that great' in a while.. (which really really really sucks!)
But luckily today the first yard sale we went to, turned out to be the best. I usually don't like going out to yard sales that have baby stuff all over the place, I don't have a baby, and I really don't feel like looking at baby stuff until I am ready to have one, but this yard sale just happened to have one side that was all baby stuff and the other side ended up having fun stuff. Well my mum walked out to it, and she started taking awhile, which meant she found some good stuff! I then saw a woman holding a nice stainless steel pot, (which my mum just bought me the other day that cost $40), so as soon as I saw that pot, I walked out to the yard sale. I ended up finding the coolest light for only $2, I found a fleece which was a $1, I found some cute girly boxes for $1, a Pumpkin Spice candle for only .75 cents, my mum on the other hand found a whole bunch of nail polishes! They all looked pretty new, and they are are in the perfect fall colors! I didn't post all of them. Just the ones I liked. She also found some new Clinique make up, Mascara, Evian Toner Spray, Stila eyeliner.. cleanser.. and some other fun stuff for .10 cents to .25 cents! But the woman ended up giving my mum a great deal on all of it, so she got it made!

Red kisses

I think it's time to experiment with red...
I have always loved women who can pull off red lips, I'm not sure if I'm one of those women, but for today, I'm going to try it out.

Rubellite by Estee Lauder

Hugs and Kisses everyone, I hope you have a fun weekend! 

Houses are a pain in the you know what...

Let's just say, looking for the perfect house is hard.
 There is no other words for it. It's tons of work, it takes up time to go look inside each one, some are really scary, but then you have some nice ones (rarely).
I am moving to Good ol' Pennsylvania with my boyfriend sometime during the holidays/ possibly after. (I am living with my parents still, and he just got out of the military last year, and is living with his parents). Of course we would want to live with our parents forever ... but we can't do that. It's time to start living on our own. We would rather not rent, why rent when you can buy? I don't want an expensive house, just something sort of small, with at least two/three bedrooms, and one and a half bathrooms would be nice. The one thing I do not like about Pennsylvania, is how every house has a basement! Whyyyyyy? Most of them get flooded, well at least where he lives.. and they are scary. Hasn't anyone watched Horror Movies! Okay okay, maybe they aren't all scary. But the ones I've been in/seen, are!
Well anyways, here are a few houses we've seen. It's hard for me to actually go inside of them, since I'm not living there yet. So my boyfriend must call up the Realtor, schedule appointments, and waste precious time going to see all of them. I thought the Gray Stucco House was definitely it! It has three bedrooms, one bath, two car garage.. wood floors, granite counters, white trim. It was perfect! Until his father went over there and noticed some very major things wrong with it. That was a shot to the heart, Corey and I were so excited, thiking this was the one, when it clearly wasn't. It's a lot of stress looking at houses, it's a huge huge huge investment! We are both stressed out, so I told him we just need a few days away from looking at houses. But tomorrow he is going to look at the Cottage (last house on this post). When I was visiting up there, this was acutally the first house we went to go look at, (but we only looked at the outside). When we pulled up, it had no drive way, a little yard, a few problems with the roof (that can be fixed). But it just seemed a little too small for us. I actually ended up liking it, it's on a lake, super nice area, great for running or bike riding! Well, since we haven't found anything, he decided to call the Realtor up, and go take a look inside. Who knows, maybe all this time, it was waiting for us.

This is the view from the window in the living room.
 It needs a little work, but I would have it in Country Living Magazine in no time!

For the past few months I have been so excited to watch this new show!
 It looks so great, who doesn't want to watch the Hampton lifestyle; the houses, people, outfits, scenery, parties, and the Revenge. The first show (which aired last night at 10 pm.), had me at the begining! The main character, Emily VanCamp, who plays Emily Thorne, ( aka. Amanda), is beautiful, and I am in love with all of her outfits that she had on in the first episode... but her being beautiful doesn't mean she is all sweet! Same for Madeline Snow, who plays Victoria, the woman is looking great for her age (yes, i'm sure she's had some face work done, but who hasn't in Hollywood). She is gorgeous, but her character is so evil, and decieving! It was sad to see Amber Valletta leave the show, that's one of the reasons why I wanted to watch it. I can't wait for the next show, which aires on Wednesday at 10pm.! "This show had me in the beginning and I can't wait to watch it unfold!"

This is what people are saying about the show:

"Finally! I waited all summer for this show to start!! So far.. like it.. just can't wait to see what happens next! :) "

"Scared to like this even though it is good. ABC is known for canceling the good ones."


"A new favorite and definately going to keep watching!"

"Great Show!! loved it!! Didn't want it to end!"

How can you resist vintage ...

One of the things I love about my mum is she loves to go to yard sales, flea markets, thrift stores, etc.. and buy vintage jewelry. She will buy bags of jewels, and get them for a few dollars, and you never know whats going to be inside those bags! Today she was going through her dresser, (getting rid of some stuff), and I noticed a Ziploc bag filled with jewels, I grabbed the bag, "those smell really bad.. they came from a smoker's house I'm assuming", 'she said. I had to laugh, she had dryer sheets in the bag to make them smell better! Too cute! Well I opened the bag, thankfully they didn't smell like smoke (smoke gives me the worst headache). I noticed a few pretty things, vintage earrings, pearls, a vintage anchor, and some other pretty little things! It was like Christmas! I did find a pair of clip-on earrings I like, but the little blue balls are falling out, so I'm going to redo them, I will post that sometime this week! I hope you like these pretty little vintage jewels, I know I do!

Christian Siriano for Payless

While watching Dancing with the Stars tonight a commercial for Payless came on. It was advertising Christian Siriano's fall collection. I was impressed, the shoes they were advertising were really cute, perfect for Fall, and I can't complain about the price (as long as they last longer then one season). I ended up visiting the site, and coming across a few other Designer shoes that I liked. I haven't purchased shoes from there in quite some time, but I just might have to stop by Payless sometime this week just to see how good these shoes really are!

What do you think about Payless shoes?
Yay or nay? 

Dogs deserve better

     Is your dog as picky as mine? Well if so, try Authority Dog Food. The first three ingredients are actually meat! Unlike Alpo, Iams, or Pedigree. My dog is very picky, he might eat one can of Pedigree dog food, but try giving him a second can, and he walks away; which tells me, he isn't liking his dog food.. Well the other day Pet Smart was having a sale on Authority canned dog food, I got a couple of cans just to try it out. Lately I have been feeding him Paul Newman's Organic Dog Food, which he loves, but can get a little pricey! So when I got home, I gave him a can, I could tell when I was scooping it out, it was more pasty like Paul Newman's dog food, it seemed much more meaty, too! Max (my dog), loved it! I gave him another can the next day, and he actually ate it. Well last night I went back to Pets Smart, and got some more cans, they are on sale for 70 cents! Can't beat that! I walked on over to the kitty section and saw they sold cat products as well. My Siamese is very picky, and her stomach is sensitive. So I picked up a dry bag of kitty food, (for sensitive tummy's), and I had a coupon which if you purchased a bag of dry food, you got two free cans of cat food. When I got home, I tried out the hard food. Usually when we give her certain types of food, she walks away.. such as Purina, or Whiska's. Surprisingly, she ate most of the hard food! I am very pleased with this product. It might not be all organic, and might not have all the best ingredients, but at least the first few ingredients actually have meat! If your animal is just as picky, do run to your Pet Smart and give Authority a try!

Do you recommend I try any other brands? As long as they aren't over $2 a can, I can try it!

It's time to bring out the little creatures...

That's right; it's time for all the spooky little creatures to come out and do their thing!
Last year, my mum and I got some pretty fun Halloween clearance stuff. You can never have too much Halloween decorations! So when we started unpacking everything today, there was a lot of 'new' fun stuff that we forgot about. -It's kinda like Christmas or something..
There is so much to do, so many new spooky little creatures to find homes for, and so little time!
Did I mention we are watching The Nightmare Before Christmas, that's what gets us in the mood for decorating!
Sorry for the messy pictures, I just wanted to show you how much of a mess the house is! Eeeeek-
Well I must get back, I will post pictures of everything once all the creatures are in their place.
I hope everyone else in enjoying their Monday!

Mmm, do you smell that...

It's time for a Cinnamon Bun
For the past few weeks, I have been craving Cinnamon Buns..
I was at the store, saw these bad babies on sale, grabbed one, and here I am today, making them for myself!
I have already had two! They are just so incredibly divine! I just love how you can unroll them, and they have Cinnamon in the middle of the layers, with icing dripping down.. mmmm!
Do you love Cinnamon Buns as much as I do?

What do you usually have for breakfast on Sundays?

Senior photo time

That's right, it's Senior Photo Shoot time-
This is Brittany, you might have seen her around on my blog in the past.. tall, brunette, always giggling while eating a bag of Doritos while watching Sex and the City..
She's a beautiful girl, always smiling, or being goofy, but one thing I have to say is, this girl knows how to have fun!
I love taking pictures of her, in every picture, she knew exactly what to do. Always a plus when taking pictures of people!
These pictures didn't seem to be 'Senior Pictures', more like modeling.
Watch out America's Next Top Model, here comes Brittany!
