No Favorites Thursday

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has been testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee today, I’m furious that in our names she is being put through this pain rather than just — oh I don’t know- finding a less problematic but still qualified nominee who doesn’t behave like he’s entitled to this goddamn job. and with this level of entitlement – think maybe he was a shitty entitled teenager too? because I do.

so fricking cute, and I’ll wear a body-con but sometimes the week before you get your period you just need an empire waist. bonus points for making my pretty great boobs look even pretty greater.

I did shop the shit out of my feelings today – Torrid has a 40% off sale going for Platinum holders (people like me who shop the shit out of their feelings).  I bought three Emma blouses – I’m wearing one right now and I love it, I feel cute, I get compliments when I wear it and a thing I love about Torrid is that they make the same thing in different prints for women like me.  Also they are offering 4% back through Ebates today. Interestingly since I started writing about shopping I really slowed down my shopping… but sign up for Ebates. Since I signed up I’ve gotten checks totaling 1073.38. (Neiman Marcus offers 10% cash back almost all the time.)

So 300 dollars at Torrid later… I don’t feel better about things.

 

I think I need ice cream.

I’m going to Disney on Thursday so I’m NOT buying anything today.

…but if I were.

Wait, first of all- you use Ebates, right? I bet you have an account you opened 5 years ago and forgot about, but if you don’t- then I have a link! Sign up with my referral link and Ebates will give you $10 when you spend your first $25, which is incredibly easy to do because almost EVERYONE partners with them. I have a check on the way for $141.71, most of that is probably Boden, Gap and Torrid.

Ok. Now that you’ve signed up for Ebates. Here are things I might buy, if I were buying things. (none of these are affiliate links, I just love them)

  1. Caboodles!

    I mean, COME ON. If your 80’s girl heart doesn’t beat a little faster when you see this then maybe see a doctor? (19.99 at Ulta)
  2. Franco Sarto Harlet 3 Sandals.

    I bought these in solid black, of course, but the temptation to exchange them for these is very strong. With navy blue shift dresses? Who even am I? (69.99 at DSW)
  3. Ugg Sammy Sneakers in Black (15% back @ Macy’s through Ebates today)

    I got these in blue from a Trunk Club trunk a couple of months ago and kept them because they were instantly comfortable- no breaking in required. But obviously I need them in black. (110.00 at Macy’s)
  4. Alllllll the sale jewelry from Manic Trout. Specifically I have these 3 pieces in a shopping cart right now.

    That bracelet is on sale for 12.50, and if I tell you how discounted the earrings are there won’t be any left for me when I’m buying things again. (Fine. They’re 8.00
  5. Elemis Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow. I use this almost daily and am running out, but I’m trying to make what I have last for another week or two. This stuff smells amazing and makes my skin feel even better. Heels, ankles, elbows… but be careful- it makes everything super slippery- and not in a fun sexy way- more in a ‘hilarious until you break your neck in the shower’ way.

    Overstock has a few of these left for 55.99 and is offering 15% back through Ebates today. 

 

I need a suggestion on what I can spray on the floor of my shower after I use the above-mentioned Salt Glow. It makes things VERRA slippery and we watch so much Forensic Files that Dave might start taking it personally soon. There’s got to be something I can make and keep in a handy little spray bottle in my bathroom. What do you recommend?
