And another weekend gone …..

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s time to morn the loss of yet another weekend. There are some who say that we should focus of the happy memories and not the loss. For this post I think that’s a great idea! Let’s start by talking about Friday. On Friday we got surprised with some really awesome cookies at my work! I got a confetti cookie it was so happy looking and it was also really yummy! After work I went to the Dollar Tree. I was excited to see that they already had some of their summer items out. My favorite item that I got that day was a pack of summer themed trivia cards. Some of the questions are really easy but some are really interesting. Some other things I got at the Dollar Tree included some squishy toys, a My Little Pony sticker set, and some paint! It was a good way to start the weekend. On Saturday I had my first marketing class through my voice acting school. It was really interesting and I look forward to the other sessions. I also got to go to a store that I love and that store is Michaels. I’m very creative person so I love stores that are filled with art supplies. I got some really fun things at Michaels including two packages of wooden animal shaped ornaments, a wooden pineapple, paint sticks, stickers, and beads shaped like sea animals. However my favorite thing that I bought at Michaels was a TY squishy beanie leppard toy! It is so soft and squishy I love it so much! After shopping we went to Starbucks! I got an iced coffee and a cake pop! Later that day I went back into town and walked on one of my favorite trails. After that I went to 7-Eleven and got a slurpee. That night I a took a bath with bath bombs! On Sunday I went to Starbucks again but the big highlight of the day was going to a restaurant to celebrate my cousin’s birthday! It was a pretty great weekend!

Tuesday’s Savers trip :)

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Tuesday I went to Savers with my mom. Tuesday is senior discount day at my local Savers. It is a good day to vist because my mom can get 30% off. The doll section at my Savers has gotten a little better lately and I ended up getting four dolls on Tuesday. One of my favorite finds from this trip was a tin box that was from Tokyo Disney. I love the art on the front of it. Another one of my favorite finds from this thrifting adventure was 102 Dalmatians book that came with posters. I remember when this movie came out so it was a really cool thing to find. I did good with books in general on this thrift trip. I got some American Girl books and some other interesting books. I also got this really nice painting set. It was a successful thrift shopping adventure!

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Friday I went to Target after work. Target is one of my favorite places to go shopping and I was excited to see what I would find there this time. In the dollar section I got a very cute Crayola brand craft kit. I’m akso excited to say I got three Barbie dolls two more mermaid color reveal dolls and another cutie reveal doll. I also got three bath bombs including an Easter themed one. Some other things I got included a cute pair of socks and play-doh foam. I really love shopping at Target I wish I lived with in walking distance of one. I was excited to reveal the new color reveal dolls. I’m really glad that I got two of the mermaid color reveal dolls because I ended up getting a third purple mermaid doll! I was frustrated but I was happy that the other doll I got was the green and blue mermaid doll. She had a peace sign theme to her. It was a great trip to Target. Thanks for reading!

Thrifting on a Tuesday

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s no secret that I love to go thrift shopping. I usually go on the weekends because I don’t work however, that’s when most people like to go as well. I decided to go thrift shopping on a week day. Last Tuesday my mom and I went to Savers. Tuesday is senior discount day so it was still crowded but my mom qualified for the discount so that was good. I got a good amount of items like I almost always do when I go to Savers. The items I got on this trip include, a bunch of Discovery Girls magazines, a Barbie book, a My Little Pony play-doh set, a Lion King Keychain, and a Barbie doll. There was not a large selection of dolls I hope there are more the next time I go to Savers. I also got a robot bank art kit. I’m excited to paint  it. Oh I also got a Keychain from Disney’s paradise pier hotel. I stayed in that hotel a long time ago and I was so excited when I saw the Keychain. Thanks for reading about my thrift shopping fun.

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!

Goodwill haul and more!

Hello,my bucket list friends it time for another post about some things I found at the thrift store but it is also time for me to talk about all the random things on my mind. Let’s start with the Goodwill first. I went to the Goodwill on Sunday it wasn’t planned ahead of time we just kind of ended up there. It was a good day for American Girl items I got two activity kits and two books. I really love the American Girl quiz book that I got. I also got a mermaid Barbie doll. It was a good day at Goodwill! As for the other things on my mind let’s start with Vocal Media. I recently published two new posts on Vocal Media. One is a fictional blog about a hair stylist who loves to take pictures and write poems the other is a post about money. Click on the links below if you would like to read them.

I also love posting animal videos and art videos as well! If you would like to see my reels my Instagram username is summerrockstar.

On Tuesday, I got three Kinder Joy eggs that were Easter themed. I love seeing different themed eggs from Kinder. I wonder what fun theme I will see next.

I’m ready for Christmas and so is Target.

Hello,my bucket list friends! Yesterday I went to Target. I was hoping that there would be some great Christmas themed items there. Let me just say that Target did not disappoint! I know there have been issues getting products into stores but Target had a pretty good selection of Christmas items. I got some cute Christmas ornaments including a bird and one that reminds me of a snow globe. In the Dollar section I got a cute polar bear plush (the bear was $3) and an art kit. Target also had a great selection of Christmas treats. I got a mini gingerbread house kit and a peppermint lollipop. I was very happy to see the selection of Christmas themed bath bombs that were available. There were so many great choices. I ended up getting two of them. Of course I had to check out the toy section. I got a Barbie doll that was made for the Barbie movie called Big City Dreams. I need to watch that movie soon! She is absolutely gorgeous and I’m happy to have her in my collection. Another fun item that I got was a play-doh snowman kit. It was a great trip to Target! Thanks for reading!

Veterans day parade and a trip to Savers

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday was veterans day. My mom and I both had the day off work. We decided to go to a veterans day parade. We bought flags and had a fun time waving them at the parade! There was music, dogs, and a lot of cool cars to name a few things. The parade was a lot longer then I thought it would be. The fun just kept on coming! I really loved the marching bands. After the parade we went to Savers. I had a coupon for 30% off certain items. We spent a good amount of time in Savers the more time we spent there the more items I found. Some of my favorite items I got yesterday are a plush unicorn backpack, a Ken doll, Disney Christmas items, two Barbie dolls and a Christmas necklace. It was a great to have a day off but it was weird to have a Thursday off then have to come back to work today. At least today is Friday and I have two days off to look forward to.
