Saturday's Marshalls Haul 4/25

Evening guys. Hope you are enjoying your Saturday. Here is my Marshalls and Old Navy haul that I was telling you guys about earlier.
My new mattress pad. A beautiful agate stone that I adore. It was only $12.99. Wish they had two. I could have used as book ends. Gluten free coconut chocolate bites. A pretty floral tank top.
Then at Old Navy I purchased two tops on clearance. Good deal both for $29 with tax.

Saturday.. A week in review 4/25/15




Good morning love bugs! It is a beautiful Saturday here in N.Y.C. Colder than it should be but at least the sun is out. Have to be an optimistic right? There is so much to catch up on. I just woke up at around 9. My hubby's day's were switched at work so he is working today and tomorrow. I hadn't been sleeping good all week but luckily last night I finally got a straight nights rest. I just layed in bed though. It felt so nice. Usually I am up right away with my husband. Making the bed. Then breakfast for him. Coffee. The usual. But today it was just me and the big bed :)
So I purchased a beautiful queen sized mattress with the bed frame at Bobs Furniture about 4 years back I think it is now. I have absolutely adored the bed. It looks glamorous and expensive (even though it was not). The bed is high. Comfortable. Everything you want in a bed. Back track a few months now I had been noticing "creaking" sounds that I never did before and it looked like two pieces of wood got loose. I called Bob's right away. Their customer service is amazing. They sent someone out yesterday to fix. It took literally ten minutes. Most of the creaking went away. It felt a lot better. I just hope it holds. But they said I could always call back and they would be able to do something else. All of this no charge mind you. It even looked higher right away. Felt better to sleep on. I was really happy. Before the repairman came over, I had ripped all the sheets, blankets, and mattress cover off the bed. I vacuumed the whole mattress. Every nook and cranny under the bed. It felt great. Then I realized I probably should get a new mattress protector. It's about four years old, as long as the mattress. So today I am going to head to my local Marshalls. I usually get great deals on bedding and essentials there for a good price. Especially since I cleaned the bed so good. I don't want to put old dirty bedding on it! I stumbled upon this good article on pinterest on how to properly clean a mattress.


I will be posting more pictures and reviews as the day continues on my week. As well as reading and reviewing some home design magazines. I am obsessed and really trying to learn and break into that career. Have a beautiful Sunday all!

Saturdays Marshalls Haul

This is my baby Marshalls haul from Saturday. They didn't have much. I purchased a pajama romper from the gap outlet near my apartment. Then I purchased Chi shampoo from Marshalls and a quick fix face mask scrub. The mask felt great. You leave it on for ten to fifteen minutes. Then scrub. My face was so soft. The Chi shampoo is great to use to protect your hair. I used it years ago.

A Renewed Monday

It's Monday guys, but for me its a day off. They switched my hubby's schedule for two weekends. He has today and tomorrow off. Its raining really bad here in N.Y.C so we are shacked up on the couch with coffee and Netflix.
I was lucky enough to have two of my favorite friends over last Friday. I received these two goodies. Philosophy's new face cream renewed hope as well as Balenciaga perfume. I'll be doing a review on both this week so stay tuned....

Peet's Dark Roast Decaf Review



I know it's Monday again right? My Monday's usually are busy. I give the apartment a big cleaning. Bleaching of the counters and stove is set in place. It is necessary to do once a week at least if not more. My apartment has all white counters and stove. Keeping them looking spotless is very important to me. I also like to do meal prep so I can stay on track health wise. Although I cheated on the weekend. Let's not go there (lol). I did feel very tired today. Mid day I kind of lost my energy and motivation which is common when I am "hormonal". Another ritual I practice when I am "hormonal" is no caffeine. I try at least. I normally don't keep decaf in the house unless it's on sale. Or I got it for free.
Two weeks ago I had a few amazon gift cards. I decided to order a box of decaf and hot tea. Which I will be reviewing also.
Peet's House Blend Dark Roast Decaf was really good. I brewed it on the smallest setting of my Keurig. Prior to brewing, I whipped up half and half in my cup with my handheld frother that I use everyday. It made a great decaf cappuccino. No one would even know the difference. I purchased the Peet's Decaf K-Cups on amazon.com. I would give it 4 coffee cups out of 5.

Have you ever tried Peet's K-cups? What Decaf are your favorites?

Formula X Nail Polish Review

T.G.I.F all. I'm posting later than I normally do. But I have to be honest I was kind of out of it today. You even have one of those days. The time just fly's by. Part of you feels as if what did you even so that was productive. I hadn't slept last night. This whole week I feel like I barely slept. I go through these patterns of sleeping good and then not. Last night was one of those. Tossing. Turning. Sweating. Thunder in the background.
So when I was up in the morning, needless to say I wasn't very energetic.
My husband always tells me its OK to rest or if I don't have a big to do list. But I am just not used to it. Although today I let myself just be. The most I accomplished was the usual cleaning. Getting dressed lol and doing my nails.
Which brings me to my formula x nail review. I had picked up these two colors on sale at Sephora. The matte color is a perfect nude. I never thought I would like
Matte on my nails but I love love love it!!! It's like doing a smokey eye and then a nude lip. I didn't add a top coat to keep the matte effect. The formula x nail polishes are about $10.00 and they come in hundreds of varieties, colors, and designs. Glitter. Shiny. Matte. Everything. You can purchase their coordinating step 1,2 and 3 polishes. Which ensure at least a week of the polish staying on. I bought them last year. Most of them will last about a week give or take. Some colors chip faster. You can buy in the store or online at sephora.com


Have you guys tried the new matte trend? Or formula one nail polish? What are tour favs??
