It’s always something.

Today I ran into SuperTarget to grab some Red’s Steak Burritos for lunch (OMG if you haven’t tried these DO IT). That normal purchase just didn’t scratch the itch so I loitered around the cosmetics section trying to find something new to buy as a “Happy Friday to Me” gift. I had $10 burning a hole in my pocket from a customer who decided I needed a tip. He threw the money at me while I was on the phone so I couldn’t refuse it. Sneaky old man! But I fell short of rewarding myself so I ended up with some hangers. B-O-R-I-N-G! I mean, I need more hangers since this week I bought 9 new shirts and or sweaters but dammit to hell I was really hoping for a pretty shiny new nail polish.

The new sweater is a simple charcoal cardigan, 3/4 sleeve and a bit boxy-hits right below the belt. I have learned with my new job to dress in layers because you just don’t know how warm or cold you will be on any given hour thanks to open garage bays. I ordered 3 microfleece pullovers from Campmor in a blurple, a black, and a weird sort of berry shade. Love these to death but I’m a little irritated the women’s version differs from the men’s. Originally I had a grey men’s version (the brand is White Sierra if you were wondering) that had this kick-ass vertical zip pocket just above the left boob. Turns out women don’t deserve cool boob pockets. Boo. Lastly from Old Navy, I got a compression shirt for running with a cool hood that has a hole for your ponytail, and three Perfect Tees (crew neck, not v-neck-gotta watch the cleavage).

So, obviously the hangers were definitely necessary. I was expecting some Nail Mail (three different parcels to be exact) to be waiting at home so I wasn’t too sad about a sparkle-free lunch excursion. After picking up The Young One from school I ran into TJM to see if any new polishes had appeared. Scored a 5-pack of Barielles for that $10. Feeling all cocky I decided to try to see if the nice ladies at Sally BS would sell me the holiday polishes from China Glaze out of the back room like I’ve gotten them trained to do but their weekly delivery truck arrived late and they hadn’t begun dealing with it. I will try again on Monday-really want to get all the glittery polishes this year!

At home, it was a Nail Mail Fail (or NMF from here on out) so  I consoled myself with the Barielles. Swatching them I noticed a definite issue with frostiness that I’ve never seen in Barielles before-going to have to be really careful to avoid brushstrokes with them.

In conclusion, I’m going to make a concerted effort to go on a real low-buy in November. I’ve got to save up for The Young One’s gifts!
