Big Lots. These are usually $1 but why not save 5 cents?

Boyfriend has been looking for this specific bed liner everywhere as stores at the moment do not carry this anymore. We found it at Big Lots and he went Ape Shiz.

Again, at Big Lots. This…just creeped me out lol

2013-03-30_18-09-55_815@ Big lots. I didn’t buy any of it due to the fact that it was all the same color =/

While we were driving through Newport News, Virginia (45 mins away from me VB)

Thought this was one of the coolest used/brand new shops I’ve ever been to. I love the name because I always said if I ever opened a thrift shop up, I’d name it this but oh well lol they beat me to it!

They had LOTS of brand new and high end stuff! Check em’ out if you’re ever near NN!

LOL I thought this was the funniest thing. May be it’s wrong to laugh at it but I couldn’t help it. Thriftin’ weeeeavess.

2013-04-01_18-27-38_771Boyfriend got this for $5 at DAV and a couple of others that I don’t have pictured. I got a The Limited dress from DAV as well but I’ll have to hem it a little and I’ll post it up later (you know..if I ever have the time)

We went to TGI Fridays that night. See that flat head? I LOVE short and fat things…I took that from my boyfriend and have been keeping it in my purse…I now take pics of it everywhere I go. He knows I “tool napped” it because we were driving and I pulled it out and he was like OMG I KNEW IT!

That’s a “Grey Goose Chiller” and it was frickin’ fantastic.

foursquare_photo_tmpZomg Food Coma FTW. If any of you haven’t tried the Jack Daniel’s sampler from TGI THEN GO GO GO.

Bf has been pouting all week how we didn’t order the pot stickers -.- Anyone know if they’re good from TGI? LMK!

Went to church for easter 🙂 Asked for forgiveness a bajillion times in my silence >.> HAPPY BELATED JESUS PULLED A RES DAY!
2013-03-31_12-25-32_549

I thought this was appropriate to take a picture of when everyone was “Praising” and singing. I coughed and my mom  sent these to me through other people passing it on and the one I opened happened to say this during the “PRAISE THE LORD” moments lol

2013-03-31_09-43-13_260Sadly, I don’t have my dress pictured because it got deleted but these were the wedges I wore. I call them my Alice In Wonderland wedges lol. Ain’t nothin’ fancy, just PayLess.

After church, we ended up searching through Big Lots and Dollar Tree for more cheapsy finds  and ate Mongolian BBQ for lunch. Then ended the night with going to Cinema Cafe to watch Hansel and Gretel (which was FREAKIN’ AWESOME)

So Far This Week

Whoever told you that Tetris doesn’t do anything for the real world IS A LIAR. I use Tetris Tactics each and every day!

Lol Made it out of scrap paper… I was hungry -_- my fat ass is always hungry.

I really hope to be posting more but it really depends on my time. I’m sure you all know how that goes. As always I thank all of my followers 🙂

I’m hoping for a good weekend this weekend and if so, I’ll be posting some stuff up. I hope to be posting some possible DIY and Nail tutorials in the near future when I have the time 🙂 Vids too!

For now, I’ll end this post with the nail design I JUST did while loading all of this stuffs up and letting them dry 🙂

2013-04-04_20-31-54_254

All $1 each. No it’s not high end but it works. Needed some blues so picked these up after work.

2013-04-04_20-59-15_373

This is how I generally test colors.

Random tidbits from Sally’s Beauty Supply

ImageI took a little trip to Sally’s last night and ended up getting these. Note:that’s my first practice finger. As soon as my friend and I saw it fairly quickly while looking around, we automatically  both thought of a deranged sex toy before realizing we do know wth it is haha. Anywhooo, I bought it just for the fact that I usually test my designs on my own nails but yeah that’s a waste of nail polish remover (-__-). As I was asking the girl that worked there about polish thinner, she directed me to 2 kinds;The ORLY brand was $4.99 while the Beauty Secrets brand was $4.29. Of course she’d tell me the 70 cent more one was better but hell it was 70 cents why not get the expensive ass brand.Image

Finally, I’ve never ever been a Beauty Club member until last night. It’s $5 for the entire year. You save on non-sale items on the daily and get certain bonuses. Not to mention, see that? You can use that $5 day after you become a member. You technically get your membership fee back (well…it really goes back to them but ya know what I mean lol).

Maybe I’ll stop in tonight and find something worth using the coupon on 🙂

Sander stick-0.34

Practice finger-1.39

Cuticle stick-0.69

Orly Lacquer thinner-4.99

I’ve always been important. Yes, I matter.

imageBad day or not, at the end all you really have is yourself. Since everyday is an actual blessing, keep it going by looking out for number 1. What really makes you happy? What do you really look forward to at the end of a shitty day? Do it.
