Five Things You Must…{Buy}

January 5, 2012


Erin Schrader

My life has been on like excitement overdrive lately.
I never used to get things in the mail.
Like ever.
Except credit card offers.
Speaking of-have you ever noticed how special and important those letters make you feel?
Like a freakin’ prized possession I tell ya.
{who want to hammer you with insane interest rates but that’s besides the point..}
My days of not receiving packages are over.
At least this past week they were over.
Come next week I’m sure it will return back to those dang credit card offers.
One main reason I started this little blog of mine, is because I wanted to share the things that I love.
Stuff that makes me happy.
Both non-material and material goods.
Because let’s face it, sometimes material goods do make your heart beat a little bit faster.
Think back to Must-Have Mondays.
I was shovin’ all my favorites in your face on a weekly basis.
I kinda wish I still did that.
I’m thinkin’ that would give me a legit reason to go out and spend money.
{Girls–if you like spending money on whatever and whenever, don’t get married. Just sayin’}
Back to the point–Today I am here to share with you 5 things that quite frankly,
you must buy.
Yes, I said must.
Let’s get this party started up in herrrrr’
1. Erin Condren Life Planner

I got this beauty today and I already feel like I can’t live without it.
Okay, so I haven’t even written anything down yet..but still.
Does it get any better than this?
 I think not.
Thank you Katie for this recommendation.
My life is so much more organized already.
2. Toms Glitter Shoes

You may remember when I asked for these suckers on my Christmas list.
Well, it pays to have best friends who read your blog.
Because my sweet bestie had these shipped to me this past week.

{that’s the bestie–in 3D glasses. That’s how we do.}
Umm, I die.
You can’t say those aren’t stinkin’ cute.
Unless your my husband, in which case you would continually say “Wow, those really are sparkly huh?”
Get your feet in some.

3. EOS Lip Balm

First off-let’s talk about the shape of this wholesome goodness.
An egg.
When is the last time you’ve rubbed an egg on your lips?
In sweet mint flavor none the less?
It’s perfection.
And your lips need perfection.
A wonderful girl at work got me this little gizmo.
As you can tell, I surround myself with really awesome giving people.
I’d consider doin’ the same.

4. Victorias Secret Pink V Neck Tees

Yes, I woke up at 6 am on my day off work to go to the Semi-Annual Sale.
Yes, that means I woke up earlier for this than I do for work.
You wanna talk about soft?
Then talk about these tees.
I can’t get enough.
And that second shirt pictured there?
It kinda makes me feel like a hoochie college girl who is tryin’ to be all cute and get guys to kiss her.
Minus the hoochie, college girl, tryin’ to be cute, and get guys to kiss her part.
You get the point.
Get yourself some of these tees while they are dirt cheap.
Heck, you may get a kiss outta the deal 😉

5. Lorac Blush Bronzer Duo

My favorite.
Sometimes your face needs something to make it look not so..oh what’s the right word?
And this baby does just the trick.
One side is bronzer which pretty much defines those cheek bones we have hiding under who knows where,
and the other side packs a nice punch of color on those pretty little cheek bones that are now exposed.
Do your face a favor and make it come alive with this stuff.

Now, if there is something I like more than telling you what you should spend your money on–
It’s when you tell me what I must buy.
Because if you say it’s good, it’s bound to be fantastic, right?
Link up your favorites below so I can oooh and ahhh and then go buy them mmmmk?
Oh, and if you aren’t in the mood to link up,
at least leave a comment with somethin’ your lovin’ at the present moment.
Bank account, prepare yourself.
You’re about to be drained sucker.
Real quick–speaking of link ups…
Holy 100 y’all.
I couldn’t believe you all jumped on ship to that post so much.
I have not even made a dent in that list of blogs to check out, but don’t fret, I’m workin’ on it.
When I say that you guys truly rock, I mean every bit of the “truly” and the “rock”.
Love You Little Bits.
