One project at a time… Tuesday Link Party. (Shopping…)

August 23, 2011
Its that time again!  Tuesdays come so fast.  So does school! Summer just flew by and my kids started school yesterday.  Its was bitter sweet. I’m happy that I got my sanity back, but sad that winter is right around the corner (Im a summer kinda gal).  Our home is getting a lot of traffic & showings. Now if someone would just make an offer, than I would feel much better. To lift my mood this week, I went shopping.  Not many projects going on since our house is for sale.  I can’t say I have splurged in quite a while. We have been super careful, saving every penny we can. Shopping did, however, feel SO good.  I made my first stop at Lush, thanks to Janet who shares her Lush crush on her blog often. 🙂  She got me hooked on bath bombs.  

Their handmade soaps are just as delicious!

My next stop was Sears to get a Lands End bag.  I am LOVING Lands End’s fall line.  Very nautical & cute.

Next we headed to Aveda to get some treats.  

A woman can’t go to the mall without visiting Bath & Body Works. They recently came out with their fall line.  Its called “The Bake Shop” and so yummy!  I got Cinnamon raisin bread, pumpkin caramel latte, caramel apple,  cranapple crisp, & creamy pumpkin. They are all hand soaps and all smell as delicious as they sound!  

Then we headed over to Borders to cash in on the going out of business discounts. My store had 50% off everything!   I picked up this “fall looking” book. Yes, I read some books because the cover is pretty.  But this one is actually a good book!  Im really enjoying it.  

And finally we stopped at Build a Bear to build a little kitten for abigail.  She waited patiently and was so happy to adopt a new animal!

  15. The Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter at Lush is fabulous! I just love that store. I’m going to try to make bath bombs one of these days.

    I went shopping today, too, & one of my stops was the Bath & Body Shop! I’m crazy, nuts for their soaps, so I always buy during their great sales. I got some of the same ones you did, plus a few of their cute Halloween ones — so cute! Then I was off to Dillard’s where I scored some serious buys!

    I’m keeping you in my prayers for selling your home. We truly feel so fortunate and blessed to have sold ours and gotten into a new location that we truly love. Now I’m having the fun of redoing a new home. So my “One Project at a Time” entry is my kitchen. It’s my first completed room!
    🙂 CAS

    Girl you & your home are smelling mighty find, I’m sure! Aromatheraphy is all you need, right? You went to all of my fave places to go in the Scottsdale mall – except I have to go to Norstroms and Crate & Barrel! 🙂
    My BFF LOVES Lush and I have tried a few of their kitchen soaps but haven’t splurged on a bath bomb because I have pretty sensitive skin. Enjoy

    I meant “fine” 🙂
