Fossil purse Feed

New look, same blog!

I just re-did the look of the blog again.  I made a new banner and I changed the colors to a nice soft purple shade.  I think I love it.  What do you think?  I had changed it a little recently but I didn't like what I had done so I changed it to this.  I like it.

Today's walk was insane!  I looked at my weather app and it said it was in the 70's.  I didn't think it would be that bad on my walk. I was wrong! lol It was so hot. I was dripping sweat.  It was gross.  I made it though and got home and relaxed for awhile before I did my workouts.  I did those, did my French, and then had lunch.  I then went and checked the mail.

I have been looking for a key fob to go on my Fossil purse since I got it.  All the ones I could find were the wrong color.  I found one on a purse that I was able to get shipping for less than $20!  It's green like my bag and has the fob.  I now have an extra bag and I moved the key fob to my favorite bag.  This new bag is a lot smaller and it's very cute.  I figured if I was going to spend the money to get the key fob, I might as well get an extra purse, too! :p

Here is a picture of the purse with the key fob on it:

It's a little darker than my purse, but it's close enough to suit me! ^_^


Monday Madness FTW! :p

Sorry about that short post yesterday.  I wasn't near the Mac and I posted with my phone.  I really didn't want to post a lot that way but I wanted to get my post in.  So, today I went for my usual walk and came back and cooled off.  I then went back out to walk to the post office!  I had a stack of pen pal letters.  My friend picked me up at the post office and I rode with him on an errand and then he dropped me home.  When I got home, my packages were here.  No, not the MBP. :(  I did get the pretty Fossil wallet, my 12 Fitbit bands, and my washi.  Everything is so pretty!  The Fossil wallet is perfect for my needs.  It holds everything I need and it takes up less space!

The bands are all so pretty.  I have tried on the lime green, the blue, and now I'm wear the hot pink one. LOL  I was able to store them in some roll up pencil cases I got on Amazon some time ago.  They are all nice quality.  The washi is gorgeous!  It's even prettier in person than it was on the site.  A bonus item?  Yes! One of the regular rolls had a slim roll with it. Yay!  I love this particular brand of washi. It's great quality and it's always pretty!  It was a good mail day.  Tomorrow, my MBP should be here.  I am so ready for it!  I'll do a whole post about it tomorrow, I'm sure!

Photo shoot for a purse?

YES! LOL  I got my purse today and I moved my stuff over to it and then took it out in the yard for a photo shoot. :P  The lighting in my house isn't the best, so I figured that would be better.  I have to share some of the photo shoot with you. :p

 

 So, there you go.  Some outside and some inside.  LOL  I'm in love with this purse.  I switched from my current wallet back to my Kate Spade one. May she RIP. 


OMG My dream bag!

Ever since I saw a Fossil bag on Pinterest some time ago, I have wanted that purse.  I loved everything about it.  I can't afford Fossil bags brand new, so I was hoping to some day find a used one.  I recently searched ebay and I found one in another color.  It was a nice peach color.  I thought it was pretty, but I really wanted the mint one that I first saw.  It's even in my bag board on Pinterest  Well, after finding the peach one and watching it on ebay, I continued to search. I found the bag in dark blue, multi colored, yellow, and brown.  I then saw a listing for the mint one. ^________________^  Guess what auction I won tonight?  It was less than $40 shipped!  I'm so excited.  The only thing that isn't great about the whole thing is that the key fob is missing from the bag. Other than that, it looks to be in excellent condition. I was so happy to find it.  I will keep an eye on ebay to see if I can find a key fob to go on it.  I was so happy to find this bag!  Here is the picture of it from the Fossil site that I pinned to Pinterest:

Isn't it gorgeous?!  I love it so much.  I don't care that it's a spring/summer color. I'll probably carry it all year long! LOL! Whee!


Thrifting and walking and food, oh my!

So, I got in my regular walk today. I stopped at CVS and got a book of stamps before heading home.  I didn't do my workouts after I got home as usual.  Instead, I went to the grocery store.  I spent more than I planned, but I got a lot of goodies.  I came home and put those away.  My friend wanted to eat and walk again!  I was surprised because he was pretty tired last night. :p

We rode to Eden NC to a trail over there.  First we ate at a little pizza place called Stella's pizza. It was quite good.  They are really just take out/delivery, but they had one booth inside and we ate in.  It was some damn good pizza!  After that, we headed to Goodwill so we wouldn't miss it before they closed.  I found a brand new pack of Staedler colored pencils for .49!  I also found a restaurant notebook, some assorted stationery, and a few other things.  The notebook is cool. You can keep track of restaurants you visit.  The stationery was some envelopes, some cute little cards and various other things.  Perfect for a pen pal person!  I also found a Fossil brand black leather purse. It's so nice and I paid a whole 1.49 for it! Yes, ONE DOLLAR and forty nine cents! WHOO!  I love a good bargain.  I also go a vintage candle trimmer thing.  You use it on the bottom of a candle so it will fit in a candle holder.  I also got a nice new wallet with the $35 price tag will on it for $2.  And, I found a Weight Watchers kit.  It's got two books on the point system and a little journal.  It's pretty cool.  Those things are really expensive brand new and I didn't have to join WW! LOL

All in all, it was a good trip to Goodwill.  After that, we went to the trail.  Almost this time last year, a tornado went through that trail and there was a lot of damage to trees.  They have a plaque about it.  The trail was re-directed at one point from the original trail!  We got through walking and headed back.

I got home and did my workouts. It was stretch day and it felt so good to stretch!  I am now going to relax until bed time as I'm extremely tired.  I need to catch up my receipts from today in my checkbook and see how much damage I did! :P  OH! I also received in the mail today my very first coffee grinder.  I got some whole bean coffee at the grocery store.  I am still working on making the perfect cup.  I made my first cup tonight and it was pretty good, but I want to experiment and see what I can come up with.  The grinder is easy to use and makes the kitchen smell good!
