3. a little Sunday snuggle session.
4. i finally picked up some of this lip stuff and kinda love it so far.
5. my sister and i made our way to Madewell and oh my gosh, i loved it. the staff was super helpful, too.

    Rosebud Salve can be used on cuts and scraps and also at the corners of your eyes to ward off crow's feet. Stuff is awesome!

    Be careful with that Target card — it can be dangerous!! I find that I rationalize purchase way more because of that 5%, lol.

    For some reason my link isn't showing up :/ Anyway, I love the watch! I don't think I would take it off either and the reason why I haven't gotten a target credit card is because i know it will get me in trouble! It is my favorite store! Hope you have a great weekend!

    A Target credit card?! Oh, girl. That is a true test of willpower and restraint. 🙂

    Happy Friday!

    I've never been to a Madewell. Except now I kind of really want to, just by looking at the bag. 🙂

    I have been itching to get the Target Debit card. My MIL has been hounding me about it, since My husband and I do shop there at least ONCE a week for needed items (more than that for WANTED) items. 🙂

    I LOVE that watch!

    Rosebud Salve is amazing stuff! It has taken me 2 years to go through my latest jar. It's great on cuticles, too!


  23. 8.10.12

    I love the watch! I must go back to my TJ Maxx and see what other treasures I can find there, being that I have been there twice in the past week! Thanks for hosting!! =)

    Rosebud salve? I'm OBSESSED! It's like the only thing that cured my chapped lips after I had them for basically a week! 🙂 🙂 I want your watch by the way. Badly. You should have bought two 😉

    There is a mint version of Rosebud Salve and it is wonderful. I know you can get it at Sephora. When you run out you should give it a try. A girlfriend gave me some and I was instantaniously hooked!

    Ohhh Madewell, I can't help but go broke every time I shop there, and Rosebud Salve is so not my thing…roses smell better in vases than on my lips, but that's just my opinion. 😉
