I hope that you all had an amazing Thanksgiving, ours was very relaxing...and for the first time since I have been a working gal at the age of 16, I had black Friday off. WOOOOHOOOO!!! Fiance and I hit up the malls and got some great deals, I will definitely do everything in my power to get it off again next year :)
A few things that have happened since I abandoned you 2 weeks ago:
My mom turned 50 (insert your best AARP joke here!!) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!! I gave her the birthday gift I found on Etsy and she cried, it mad me so happy that she loved it.
I have found 98234029384 things that I want Santa to leave under my tree.
Our tree is up and the Christmas decorations have taken over our condo.
My Mom and I saw Pauly D, from the Jersey Shore, in Homegoods at 2:30 pm on a Friday afternoon, with a body guard.....good choice Pauly D, Homegoods is known for getting super out of control at a moments notice.
I lost 1 lb :) This is awesome for me since it takes me a super long time to lose weight, now I am on a health kick to keep it off and work on the next one, yay!!!!!
I have decided that the headband I posted last time is #1 on my list, but that I want to wait to get one until my dress comes in and I can go see it again. I have saved it under my "faves" on Etsy.
My BFF/MOH and I discovered a Jeweler in Newport this summer, Alex and Ani. I had totally forgotten about them until recently, and I have been scouring their website. Their jewelery is made from recycled materials from the US, and it is so fun!!
I have fallen in love with this bangle, which happens to be my favorite color, and has a special wedding meaning:
"Known as the love stone, October's rose helps the wearer feels a strong sense of self-worth, therefore being worth love. Rose is also the stone of unconditional love in marriage. Wear rose to motivate gentleness, forgiveness, compassion, kindness and tolerance. Each charm hangs from Alex and Ani's patented Expandable Wire Bangle, the most innovative concept in jewelry, which allows the wearer, with the slide of a hand, to adjust the bangle for a perfect fit. Wear alone or mix and match with other Alex and Ani styles for a custom look. Available in Yellow Gold and Shiny Silver".
So, I am really hoping this pink one might be under my tree, or any tree that Santa leaves gifts under for me :). I also think this would be a super fun gift for my Bridesmaids, because it will match my wedding and I love the unconditional love theme that it carries with it.
I discovered a body scrub this week from Aerie, it smells like sugar cane and it makes my skin baby soft and all glowing. As of right now, you can't buy it online, but I was able to score 3 for $15.00 in the store. They are regularly priced at $14.50 each, so I got an amazing deal. If you get a chance to stop into an Aerie store, and if their body products are on sale, get a scrub, it will change your life (obviously I have a very exciting life if a body scrub is a game changer hahahahahahahahaha). Seriously though, its amazing and I am sorry I haven't discovered it sooner. Go try it out and get your bridal glow on!!!
That is all that I have for you this week! Have a great weekend!
