Weekend Recap: Birthday Shopping!

Monday, April 8, 2013

Yay for Birthday shopping! Can I get a witness? Who doesn't love using up all those birthday freebie coupons, right? 

This Saturday I enjoyed a special shopping day out with my mom and sister to celebrate 'yours truly' turning 27 this Wednesday. I love birthdays. I don't ever want to complain about getting old because in my eyes, a birthday is a beautiful reason to celebrate another blessed year of life. I am beyond thankful.

My mom 'really' spoiled me this weekend with birthday gifts and even dinner out! Mmm... For dessert, us girls split some white chocolate raspberry cheesecake and I was in heaven. Where're my white chocolate lovers at??  ;) 
As if you couldn't already tell, we spent a rather large chunk of time at Ulta! :D I love that place. I feel so girly in there playing with all of the fun shadows, liners, lipsticks, and so on. Do you know what I mean?? The makeup area is all pink and cute. Eeeee!

Ulta had a group of professional Urban Decay makeup artists on site this weekend doing full makeovers. I 'heart' Urban Decay (it's a long-standing relationship). It's just too bad we didn't call and make an appointment as they were totally booked by time we got there. But did we let that rain on our fun parade??... No sir. We just grabbed a chair and did our own makeovers! :) I picked up something extra yummy while I was there but you'll just have to wait until tomorrow to see what it is! 

In addition to makeup, I also scored some 'adorable' new outfit pieces for spring/summer. I'm having fun styling them right now for an end of the week 'Birthday' post. Yippie!
 No shopping trip is complete without a little trip to Starbucks. Mmm.... 

Bracelet inspiration! I wore these together on Sunday. Click HERE for a tutorial on how to make the braided rope bracelet. 
Are these pretty or what!? My dear friend gave them to me as an early birthday gift over the weekend. I'm a sucker for tulips, 'especially' yellow ones! I can't wait to plant them. And have you ever taken the time to SMELL a tulip? Amazing. So fragrant. 

That's all for me today friends! I hope your Monday is off to a good start. It's rainy here but I'm not complaining. I love a good spring rain. I even heard a few rumbles of thunder earlier. See you all tomorrow! 

Ps- come and link up with me for 'yolo' Monday w/Still Being Molly and Lipgloss and Crayons!
