Despite that title putting ABBA into my head, I did not see Mamma Mia this weekend. I saw Dark Knight like half the world did. It was soooo good. It was LONG but I would (and probably will) see it again. I was on the edge of my seat, filled with suspenseful tension. And Heath Ledger’s Joker was so incredibly creepy. I want to watch him again and again. His voice, his body language, his movements… mastering these are things an actor dreams about! To think that this was the boy I loved from “10 Things I Hate About You” so many years ago. And now he’s gone. It’s hard to wonder about how many great roles he will never play. So sad. Oh, but how funny was he as the nurse?
On Friday I got paid made my credit card payments. On Saturday I went a little crazy at the mall. Worth it? To me, yes!
I spent a lot of money. Not TONS, but a lot, at least to me. Especially since I’ve been meaning to get my hair cut, and that is not cheap. This money that hemorrhaged from my bank account probably helped cause the panic attack I had when I got home. Honest to God panic attack. It was a little scary and it happened just as David had to leave for his show, so not only was I all freaked out, but I scared him too!
I survived, by sitting on the floor of the living room, the A/C turned on high, and watching Freaky Friday on ABC. Oh, and talking to myself. I then went online to self diagnose my panic attack. “Fear of ‘losing it’ or going crazy”? That was me! This does not happen to me very often at all, but this was the first time it seemingly happened over NOTHING. I’m guessing that it was a combo of being rushed, spending more money than I realized, and being hot and humid. But still, it was weird.
Anyway, then I played with my beautiful new purchases. I thought, hmm, maybe I should return something. I don’t NEED all this stuff. But then I realized that I really really wanted it. And it did not give me another panic attack. So I’m keeping my baby.
I went to Sephora with Sandy. She may not be a girly girl all the time, but she has it deep inside! We spent a LONG time wandering around this store. I described it as porn, especially the makeup brush section. She agreed.
I’m slightly obsessed with mascara, so when I saw this mascara set I had to buy it.
And I did. It’s like I died and went to heaven. I can’t wait to play with them all.
Aren’t they cute!?
I purchased that, but Sandy wasn’t done browsing yet. So I browsed some more. I decided I was way overdue for a Foundation Brush, and the saleslady agreed. Of course she did.
Then we were directed to some bath products that were 50% off! Well, at that price, how could I NOT buy the Asian Ginger Dry Oil body spray?
So now I have another $30 in my basket. I had been drooling over this Urban Decay eyeshadow palette the entire time I was in the store. Not only is the package pretty, but the colors are incredible. I’m a huge sucker for packaging style. Which explains my frequent purchases of Benefit products. So cool!
Suddenly my mind said “What the heck?” and I picked up the Urban Decay palette. And went to the register before I could change my mind. Pricey? Yes. But I told myself that I no longer have cool eyeshadow colors and it had been forever since I bought any new eyeshadow.
So now I am the happy owner of these beautiful eyeshadows.
I am going to have FUN with these! Look at that green!
But Sephora was just the warm up to my shopping excitement. Sandy and I walked towards Barnes & Noble to meet up with the boys who just couldn’t wait outside Sephora any longer. Lo and behold, what do we see? Yellow dot clearance SHOES outside of Boston Store!
We practically run to the 9.5-10 table and rummage through all the boxes. And then I see pink. And a BCBGirls box. And I suck in my breath. And I pull out the box. And I almost faint that THESE shoes are here. I first saw these shoes months ago. And I loved them at their full $98 price tag. They were just so cool! Then I loved them when they got marked down to $70. Just a couple weeks ago I saw them on clearance (IN A SIZE 10) at 60% off. And yet, I didn’t buy them.
But now, out in the mall air, exposed to everyone, I felt that I had to have them. At 70% off, they were around $30. I didn’t really have the money, but I thought of one last possibility. My mom. I dialed her cell phone and she answered right away. I told her that I was at Boston Store and tried on some shoes that I had to have. She says “At Mayfair? Where.” I looked around, and there she was.
She was on her break, at that very moment. I brought the shoes over to her, and even she thought they were awesome and that I had to have them. I handed over my cash and she went and purchased them, right then and there. It was meant to be! $23 later, they were mine. MINE!!!!
Are they ridiculous? Yes. But then, so am I.
