Two more thrift shopping adventures

Hello, my bucket list friends. Yesterday and the day before I went thrift shopping. I found some great items and I’m excited to tell you more about it so here we go. On Thursday I went to my favorite local Goodwill location. I was so happy when I saw this Barbie ornament from the 90s. It was still in the original box. Another item I found that got me excited was a color your own squishy toys art kit! I had a kit from this same brand before but this kit had different squishy toys in it. Other highlights include a mug from 1986, and a dog purse! Yesterday day after work I started off my weekend by going to Savers. When I got there I headed right to the toy section. I was happy to see that there were a good amount of dolls to chose from. I ended up getting three Barbie dolls. My favorite doll I got is pearl beach barbie. she still had her super cute earrings on and her blue bathing suit too! I also got a lot of Barbie movies. It looked like a whole collection of Barbie movies had been donated. I kept finding ones that I wanted to add to my collection. Some of the other things I got were two American Girl books, a bag of Disney Parks buttons ,a flip fllop pin, and new ear buds! Thank you for reading about my thrift shopping adventures!

An amazing Goodwill trip!

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Thursday, I went thrift shopping! I had not planned on going on thrift shopping that day but my dad had to get some items from the store next door. As you can probably tell by the title of this post it was a really good day for me at the thrift store! One item that I was really excited about finding was the game pretty,pretty princess. I remember this game from when I was a kid and I have been looking for it when I go thrift shopping. I was so happy when I saw it on the shelf. I haven’t counted all the jewelry but it from what I can tell it’s all there or mostly all there at least. This was a great find! Another great find from this thrift trip was a blanket that had some characters from The Lion King two printed on it. I also got some Tennie Beanies and a Barbie calendar. I also really love the plush purple cat that I got. It’s originally from Build a Bear Workshop and it has a cute little bow on its tail! I wish all thrift shopping trips could be like this.

Goodbye bubbles, a trip to the Goodwill and Easter fun

Hello, my bucket list friends! Another weekend has left us. Before we move on from it I wanted to share my adventures this weekend with all of you. I had one big event planned this weekend and that was the bubble run. I was excited to do the bubble run for the third time. It was a rainy and windy day and they kept pushing back the start start time. There were people who had earlier start times that had already done the race but unfortunately for us they ended up canceling the race for safety reasons. I was very disappointed but I did get to see my friends so that was good. After we left the race we made a stop at Starbucks and then we went home. Afer being at home for a little bit, I went shopping at the Goodwill. I wanted to do something fun after being disappointed with the run being canceled. At the Goodwill I found two amazing Barbie items. One is a helicopter and the other is a is car that opens up but I haven’t figured how to open it yet LOL! I also got three bath bombs, a plush dog purse, a Minnie Mouse watter bottle and more. After the Goodwill, I went to the Habit and got a coffee shake! I love their coffee shakes. It was a pretty alright day even if it didn’t go as planned. The next day was Easter Sunday I started the day by going to church I had the perfect Easter dress that I got at Savers. Later in the day I went my cousins house, we had a lot of amazing food and we also did an egg hunt. I still love doing egg hunts ! I’ll probably still be doing egg hunts when I’m 50!

Thanks for reading about my 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!

A Barbie Easter basket,Dollar Tree, and Savers!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m a very happy collector at the moment. In the past few days I’ve managed to add some really great things to my collection. On Thursday I was at the grocery store and I just had to have this Barbie themed Easter basket. I love the puzzle that it comes with. On Friday I  went to the Dollar Tree after work. I got two packages of squishy toys, a container of play-doh that has two colors inside, model magic, canvas and bunny shaped containers. I loved seeing all the Easter items that they had this year. I’m also happy that they are still selling the Jelly Belly sparkling waters. I got one of each flavor. Yesterday, I went to Savers. We went earlier in the day so it was neat and organized. I’m not used to seeing it like that! I was very happy with the items I was able to add to my collection. Some of my favorite finds I got were a Barbie color reveal doll, a Barbie doll book, a TY Beanie Baby bear,two packages of Lisa Frank Easter bubbles, full house books, a Disney mug, and a package of Lisa Frank pencils! I also got this American Girl activity box that comes with lots of cards that have crafts, quizzes and more fun ideas printed on them. I was happy to see that they had more dolls this time. There was not a lot of dolls but there were more then there has been. I hope to find more great items the next time I visit Savers.

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.

My fun weekend adventures plus space flavored Coca-Cola

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’ve been wanting to get this post up all week but I finally got around to it. This weekend was pretty amazing and I’m excited to tell you about it. Let’s start with Friday. On Friday during my lunch break I walked to CVS. I was excited to see what Easter items they had available. I ended up getting a craft kit and a plush frog that was in a plastic egg. That evening after work, I had a voice acting class where I practiced my scripts for my demo reel. I’m really excited to get my demo put together! On Saturday I spent most of the day with my good friend Teresa. We got pizza and then we went to see the movie Dog it was pretty good. It was a very emotional movie but it had a good ending and some laughter mixed in along the way. It’s worth checking out if you are wanting to go to the theater. After the movie we went to the Goodwill. I found some fun items there. Some of my favorite items I got there were three Barbie dolls, a large Lisa Frank pencil, a bath bomb, and a bath bomb bar! It was a pretty good thrift trip. Teresa has a beautiful orange tree in her yard and she gave me some oranges. She also gave me some bath bombs from a brand I had never tried before. We ended our amazing day with a trip to the candy store and dinner. It was a truly fun day. On Sunday I took a bath using one of the bath bombs Teresa gave me and I used part of the bath bomb bar I got at the Goodwill. I like how the bath bomb bar can be broken up and used multiple times. The bath bomb she gave me had a ring inside. I  love it when bath bombs have prizes inside. Later that day my mom and I went on a walk and on the way back we ended up going to a neighbor’s house for pizza! There were also a lot of dogs there it made me smile. I also went to Safeway on Sunday. I found something interesting while I was there. Space flavored Coca-Cola Yup you read that right. I had seen a pictures of this new product but this was my first time actually seeing it in stores. The taste was very interesting. It had a very sweet cake like flavor. I did enjoy the taste and I would recommend trying it. This weekend was really busy but also really 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.

Ok…. what should I talk about next? Oh! I’m having a lot of fun posting reels on Instagram! I like posting videos of throwing bath bombs into the bathtub and they actually get a good amount of views! 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.
