shopping madness part I

I have a confession. Lately I've been shopping and I can't seem to stop. Whenever I get ready for a trip {especially to see BK} I have this urge to buy incredibly cute outfits to woo him with. Not that he needs to be wooed but they make me feel pretty and more excited to see him none the less. 

I'm in count down mode and since I know I'll be in CA in just a little over a week {insert a BIG skip for joy!} I've been in this mega shopping mode. I keep on thinking of sunny CA and how I want some cute outfits while I'm there. So what did I do? Shop...and I shopped again. And...I really need to stop shopping. 

Want to see what I bought?
These adorable Grendha Jelly Shoes had me wishing for my ocean dreaming days to return in an instant when I saw that they were see through jelly shoes with waves on the sole that look like the ocean. Plus they have a darling star fish to add instant glitz to the flip flops! I displayed them on my turquoise and purple notebook to give you the full effect of how cool they really are.
I'm sooo ready for spring and summer to here. Hence the need to stock on on floral tops. Oh and just not any floral top, a bright, fun, and colorful floral top by American Rag.
 Here is another American Rag top that I fell in love with. I liked the subtle florals with the turquoise and dark green undertones.
I sent out this tweet earlier today in regards to my new zigisoho wedges:
Just bought four inch wedges that feel like a dream.
That seriously is the best summary of these shoes. I've mentioned a time or two that I rarely and I mean rarely wear pumps or wedges anymore just because I have issues wearing them without my feet killing me! Plus I want to maintain my posture among other things but that's another story for another post...
So basically I fell in love with these shoes and the fabric that you see above is heaven sent and oh so soft. I don't even feel like I'm wearing 4 inch wedges! They are a dream!
Here's an "official" picture of my new wedges from the DSW website if you want to snatch up a pair for yourself.
I also bought some SPF 15 lipgloss from Victoria Secret. Who would have thought that they would put SPF in lipgloss now?! I love that. Also - I am going to try out the new Instant Wake Up! Bright Radiance Pen. Maybe it will make me look more awake and ready to take on the day when I'm in CA!

 So that's the end of my shopping madness, for now that is. Today I went shopping again and got even more clothing. Yikes, I really do need to stop. 

Please stop back on Thursday for a fabulous, and I mean fabulous giveaway! Probably the best giveaway that has ever happened on my blog and I'm super excited about it.

Also - I'll be back on Friday or Saturday with Shopping Madness Part II!
