Summer shopping fun 2022

Hello, my bucket list friends! This past weekend I had my summer mall weekend. This is a tradition of mine where I go to the Dollar Tree on Friday and then I go to the mall on Saturday. I love shopping and summertime. That is the main reason why I do this in summer. Plus it is a great idea to spend a hot summer day inside of an air-conditioned mall!

Dollar Tree- After work on Friday I went the Dollar Tree. I didn’t go to my favorite location because it was further away from my work. The location I went to is usually pretty disorganized and this time was no different. However, I still got a lot of great items. Some of my favorite items I got are two Hot Wheels monster truck toys, summer wall decorations, a 4th of July themed craft kit,a Barbie craft kit, summer stickers, and a My little pony coloring book. Yes, the store was disorganized but it was still very easy to find things to put in my basket. I was very happy with the items I  got. I also got some Jelly Belly brand sparkling waters. I love getting thoes when I go to the Dollar Tree.

Mall – On Saturday I visited my favorite local mall. The first store I went to was Claire’s. This store is always at the top of my list when I go to the mall. They have a clearance section and this great buy three get three free promotion. I bought some nice items here including some hair clips that have strawberries, ice pops, and watermelon slices on them. I also got this super cute movie theater themed earing set that was on sale. I was very happy about this super cute headband that I got too. After Claire’s I went to the candy store next door. I got two pieces of candy there. My next store was Old Navy where I was looking for flip-flops and a a new t-shirt and of course I found both. Old Navy has great flip-flops and I have a few of their graphic tees. Now, this next part is a lot of fun because I went to Build a Bear Workshop!! They have this collection called Heartables where you open a bag and see what animal you get to make. I got a very cute purple fox. I named her Violet Waves. She is super cute! After that I went to Daiso where I got some fun things. Including erasers that where shaped like sheep and stickers. While I was at the mall I went to this really good vegan place for lunch. One thing about this mall that makes it my favorite is that it has a Target in it. I went to Target and as always I found some great items. Some of my favorite things I got are a new Barbie doll, a slap bracelet ruler, a bag of erasers,and bath bombs that have prizes inside. I also went to Forever 21 where I got some cute socks. I also love taking pictures when I’m at the mall. I was happy to see some art and a floral display that made great backgrounds for photos. It was a warm day so I got a refresher at Starbucks before going home. It was a good mall day and I’m very happy with the items I got.

Thank you for reading about my summer shopping spree!

Massage,mall, and Savers!

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Saturday I did a lot of my favorite things! It started with going to the mall. I love getting massages at the mall because you don’t need an appointment. I had a lot of tight mussels that needed to be worked out. I’m so glad I got a massage I really needed it. While at the mall I went shopping to two of my favorite stores. First I went to Claire’s where I got new hair bows ,hair Scrunchies, and jewelry. I also went to Daiso where I got some super cute stickers ,socks , buttons, a Disney wash cloth and more! I went to Jamba Juice before I left the mall. However, my shopping fun was not over yet. I also went to Savers. I didn’t find a lot of items on this Savers trip but I did get some cool American girl items. I got a Kirsten bookend, an American Girl bag and a American Girl craft kit. I also got a Disneyland mug, a bag of two beanie babies and a necklace. It was a pretty good shopping day but I hope Savers has some more dolls when I go there next. I was so surprised to see that there were only a few dolls in the doll section and none were Barbies! However I’m very happy with the items I did find . Thanks for reading!

Going to the mall and other weekend fun

Hello,my bucket list friends! Another weekend has come and gone. I thought it would be fun to tell you about my adventures this weekend so here we go! On Friday I went to Dollar Tree. I got a lot of cool items including a lot of Barbie items. I was so happy to see all the Barbie brand items at Dollar Tree. Some of my favorite items I got were two Barbie books,a My little pony calendar,stickers and two craft kits. It was my first time at the Dollar Tree since the price increase. I know it’s unfortunate but I understand it. Even with the price increase I will continue to shop at Dollar Tree! After shopping we went to eat at Panera Bread. I love their vegetable soup! Another thing that happened on Friday was that the American Girl doll I ordered arrived! Her name is Camden. She has beautiful blue eyes and dark hair. I’m very happy to have another American Girl doll. On Saturday my mom and I went to the mall. I went to Claire’s and got some fun jewelry and accessories. I really love this one big hair bow I got. I also got a mermaid bubble bar at Lush and a Barbie Christmas ornament at Hallmark. We also got some much needed massages. The mall had this beautiful arch that you could take pictures with. I love the picture of me under the arch. We also got Starbucks and I got a box of popcorn from Target that has a cute picture of the Target dog on it. It was a great day at the mall. On Sunday I had a hard time getting out of bed due to muscle pain. It was hard to move without my muscles locking up. That evening I went to Starbucks and the grocery store. I brought Camden with me on our errands. It was fun bringing my doll to the store. In addition to food I  got a craft kit. As I walked around the grocery store I could feel my muscles getting tight. I’ve been using a tens unit to help with my muscle pain but unfortunately it hasn’t gone away yet and I’ve had to miss work. Other then the pain I was in it was a pretty good weekend.

Dollar Tree, the mall and new shoes!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Happy Sunday! Another weekend is coming to a close. I thought it would be fun to share my weekend adventures with you so here we go! On Friday I watched the new My Little Pony Movie on Netflix. It was a really good movie and I’m excited to see what adventures will be next for my new favorite ponies. I highly recommend checking out this movie. After work on Friday I went to the Dollar Tree. I got some more acrylic paint and other art supplies. I also got this unicorn play set that I had been wanting I also got some Christmas craft items. I know that they get bought up pretty fast so I decided to get them now. I want to do blogmas again this year and Christmas crafts make for great blogmas posts. Yesterday day I went to the mall. My main goal was to get new shoes because I have a ganglion cyst on my foot and if I wear anything that touches it even soft slippers,it hurts when I walk. I found one pair on shoes in my closet that didn’t touch the cyst. However I got these shoes around 2003 or 2004. They are pink platform slides. They are not the most comfortable on my foot so I needed to get something more comfortable that I could wear until I can get the cyst removed. I started my mall adventure at Target. I didn’t find any shoes there but I did get two Barbie dolls including a new color reveal doll and some foam My Little Pony toys. After Target we went to Famous Footwear and that’s where I found a very comfortable pair of Nike slides. I’m so happy that I now have a pair of shoes that won’t hurt my cyst but are also  comfortable to walk in. While I was at the mall, I went to Claire’s. I always love shopping their sale section. I bought some really cute earrings and a hair bow. My mom and I also got massages. It was a wonderful mall trip. That evening we had game night!I hope all of you are enjoying your weekends!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m pretty excited about this post because it’s not late like a lot of my other things I love posts have been! I have some fun things to talk about so here we go !

 

Breyer mystery horses and unicorns

I was very happy last weekend when my mom said she needed to go to a store next to a cute little toy store. I had gotten a Breyer surprise horse there before a while ago. When I went into to the toy store I was excited to see that they had the Breyer mystery horses and unicorns they were much bigger then the ones I had seen before. I got two horses and two unicorns. Altogether they cost a little over 20 dollars. I was very happy with the size , look and price of the toys. I highly recommend these toys for Breyer fans on a budget.

Ebay

Shopping on Ebay kind of became my hobby this month. I got some really awesome things that I was very happy to welcome into my collections. ( You can read all about it HERE and HERE)

Claire’s

I got to got to my favorite mall store twice this month. The 2nd time I went with a friend and we both had a fun time picking out items from this amazing store. My favorite item that I got was this necklace with hearts on it ! I hope I get to visit this store again in October.

My new purse

It was time for a new purse and I found the perfect one at the Good Will it’s covered in little owls. I really love it. It’s also not a cross body purse so I’m having less shoulder pain then I did with my old purse.

My Minnesota adventure started on Monday July 23rd with a flight to Minneapolis once my mom and I got there the hotel shuttle picked us up . After spending some time checking in and relaxing in our really nice room at the Springhill Suites . We went back downstairs and caught the shuttle to the Mall of America ! I had being wanting to go to the Mall of America for a long time and now this dream was coming true ! I was so excited when I got to the mall . I got pictures with the big beautiful star statue out front . Then we went inside to get something to eat . We went this amazing place called Freshii that has really and good healthy food . After eating we to this amazing store called five below I had heard of this store before but there are no locations close to me . I was so excited to shop at this amazing store ! Five Below is really awesome because the max price that you can pay for an item is $5 ! There was a lot to choose from I ended up finding some My Little Pony items , a cute TY Beanie boo panda , some cute pencil grips and some bear shaped pencil sharpeners .  After shopping at Five below I wanted to go to the mall of America gift shop it took a while to find one but I was so glad that I did !

Tuesday July 24th, 2018

 

This was my first full day at the mall of America ! The thing that I wanted to do the most was the Crayola Experience ! It’s like a hands on museum ,there are lots of projects you can do . My favorite was called the melt down where you got to create a picture using melted crayons ! There was also this really cool station where you could take a picture of yourself and print it out to color ! Another one of my favorites was getting to make your own crayon labels !  The Crayola experience was my favorite thing that I did at mall of America ,it was just so much fun ! After that we did some shopping and ate at Freshii . At one of  the Minnesota gift shops in the mall I got a new Snow Globe for my collection . We had gotten tickets to see a movie later that afternoon but before it was movie time we did the amazing mirror maze. I had a fun time walking around the maze trying to find the way out ! It was a little challenging to figure out what was a mirror and what was a hallway but we made it through pretty quickly . After the maze we went to Carlo’s bakery . I love watching Cake Boss on TV but I’d never been to one of his bakeries before and needless to say to was very good . We also got some wonderful coffee from Caribou Coffee I wish they had Caribou coffee where I live ! The movie theater at mall of America does not disappoint ! It has very comfortable reclining chairs ,it was a great place to relax after doing a lot of walking ! After the movie we did one more activity before going back to the hotel .  We took a ride on Fly over America which is very similar to Soarin at Disney California Adventure but it has whole new places to discover ! This was a really fun day!
