We are out!
Cavewoman and I have broken the lent "No Buy". It happened last night and it felt really good. I feel hungover. It lasted all day and my entire body is sore.
Everyone get your minds out of the gutter. Here is my quick shopping report:
We began our day like we always do. We did our visit to our Mecca...The Beachwood T J Maxx. Our eyes spied Armani and a lone Alexander McQueen. I waivered on a Trina Turk clutch. I bought a backup Mitsouko EDT. Cavewoman scored on skincare products. We met Griff and Tussah at Nordstorm for lunch and primer research. I got sidetracked by the shoe department and the new Laura Mercier Flawless skinline. I caved on ballet flats and Mercier's perfecting water light and purifying oil light. I will review these products soon. Cavewoman was intensely focused and kept to the primer plan. Cavewoman questioned the Lancome department at Nordstorm. They will have the 2000 et une Rose soon. They could not give a launch date but they were 100% aware of what we were talking about. We went to Sephora where we played in fragrances and cosmetics. Cavewoman pronounced the new Nanette Lepore as disappointing. Tussah introduced us to the new Guerlain called Tutti Kiwi. This a wonderful summer scent. Fruity but more grown up than the Escada fruit offerings. I caved on three things at Sephora. I purchased Kiss Me's mascara. I was influenced by Beauty Addict's review. I also bought Bourjois's complexion illuminating/ highlighting veil and Sephora's primer (perfection makeup base). The last two products were influenced by dear cavewoman's primer reviews. She really has started a primer revolution.
We visited Saks and Griffie fell in love with a great shoe. These were some serious shoes. The kind of shoes that stop traffic, get you boyfriends and make life worth living. The shoe elves at Dolce and Gabbana know how to create some magic. Send caving vibes to griffie. She needs to own these.
I found a pair of navy blue ballet flats at J Crew. But they have a deep dark twisted secret. That is all I am able to say without wincing. I also bought two headbands for summer. I picked up the peep toe patent leather flats at Nine West. They are comfortable and on sale. I regret not getting the red. My last purchases were at anthropologie. The best discover of the night was Paul and Joe's Bleu fragrance. It is out of this world good. I raved about it below.
Huge thanks to cavewoman, griff and tussah for a great day of shopping in Ohio. It was a wonderful day to break a "No Buy".
