TGIF! Grad school started back this week, so life has been a little hectic. Oh well, full speed ahead! Let’s recap this past week:
1. As mentioned grad school started back–I have officially had my LAST 1st day of school ever. By the time I finish my MBA in December, I will be have 9.5 years of post-secondary education. I never planned to do that (or have this many degrees), but God has blessed me to be well-educated!
2. Ok [confession time], who shopped the After Party Sale this week?! I am a newbie to Lillie Pulitzer, but I love it! The few items I have came from Clothes Mentor because I refuse to pay that much for stuff. Enter the After Party Sale–I was able to pick up 2 dresses at some seriously great prices!
Speaking of Lilly, I stopped by the Front Porch last night. They always have excellent coupons, so I got this Lilly Pulitzer agenda and a Puj faucet cover for the bathtub–clearly, I was in an elephant kind of mood:)
|Puj Faucet Cover (reg. $10.99, on sale $6; online for $9.99 here) |
Lilly Pulitzer Agenda in Tusk in the Sun (reg $22, with coupon $17.60)
3. I went back home to visit last weekend. I got to catch up with some good friends, eat at some of my favorite places, and we even tried out Bingo. My friends and I were very disappointed, however, that we got there too late to play the paper game with the neon-colored daubers. Evidently, you can play Bingo on a machine now and it’s all automated:(
|It was $10 to play all the different games going on that night–not too bad for a couple of hours |
cracking up with friends!
4. My cute infinity scarf from Mimi’s Monograms finally came in! It was on backorder, but shipped super quick once Mimi was done with it. I know I live in Kentucky and it’s still summer, but I had to wear it to work today, because it was just too cute! My office stays pretty cold, after all. Stay tuned–I’ll have a blog post soon about how I wore it today, while also giving some pointers on pattern mixing!

5(a). Since I said goodbye to Birchbox, I cashed out all of my points. I had 400 points, which was equal to $40 in FREE products. I picked up 2 of the new Benefit’s They’re Real Push-up Liner (see my thoughts here) and Benefit’s Boi-ing Concealer. Since I spent over $35, I got a mystery sample pack for free ($10 value). I also used a coupon code (WELCOMEOFFER20) for 20% off $25+. I scored $78 in products for only $14.40!
5(b). I also received my 1st Ipsy Glam Bag, which is the subscription service I switched to (read about what Ipsy is and why I switch here). I’m already in love!
