Wednesday evening Goodwill trip

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday after work I went on a quick trip to Goodwill because my dad needed to go to the store next door. I never know what I’m going to find when I go to Goodwill. I always wonder what I will add to my collection. This time I got a TY plush , two art kits, an American Girl building block set, and a Barbie doll. The Barbie doll and one of the art kits were from Target. I love how the Goodwill gets items from Target. There were a few Barbies to choose from. I’m really happy with the one I chose because she comes with a lot of accessories. As for the American Girl building set, it was a used item, that looked like it had been well played with. In the box were pieces from Lego sets, and not all the pieces were there but for the price I’m pretty happy with it. Overall I’m happy with my midweek thrift shopping haul.

Wonderful lavender slime and a thrift shopping adventure

Hello, my bucket list friends! I have some fun things I want to tell you about. Let’s start with my visit to the slime kitchen last week. On Friday after work my mom and I went to get massages at the mall. We were both in need of some stress relief. In addition tp the massages I really wanted to check out a new place in the mall called the Slime Kitchen. Before this I hadn’t had a lot of experience with slime. I love playdough and I had played with things that were similar to slime a while ago but I have not used slime since it has become very popular in recent years. I heard about the Slime Kitchen on the mall’s Instagram page. It looked fun and interesting. After getting massages and going to Claire’s It was time to go to the slime kitchen. I wasn’t sure how it all worked but the staff was very helpful. I ended up choosing cloud slime and I made it lavender scented! I loved how you got to add two little toys into your slime I chose an ice cream cone and a lollipop! I did enjoy making slime. However, it was $25.00 so I probably won’t do it again but it was worth doing once. The next day I went to Savers to do some thrift shopping! It was more crowded then I expected it to be even for a Saturday. However, I was still able to get some pretty awesome items. Some of my favorite things I got that day are a Barbie collector book,a Barbie horse, some American Girl books, and a chalk book that comes with chalk. I also got another book that is summer themed maybe I can read it before summer ends.

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.

A road trip, Bucket list #245 and an Alice Cooper concert

Hello, my bucket list friends! I had a really wonderful weekend! I went on a mini road about a four hour drive away. The main reason for this road trip was to go see an Alice Cooper concert. I bought the tickets kind of last minute so the seats I got weren’t great but they were good enough and that’s good enough for me. My mom and I left on our weekend adventure on Friday when I got off of work. Before we got to our hotel, we stopped at five below. I’m a huge fan of discount stores but there is not a Five Below near me. I was excited that I had a chance to go here again. I got Barbie and My Little Pony toys here as well as some art supplies. I hope one of these stores opens close to me one of these days. After shopping at Five Below we went to Chili’s for dinner before going to the hotel. The next day was the day of the concert but we did have some time before then. I didn’t realize it before but as I was looking up things to do that day, I discovered that there was a Goodwill outlet in the same town where we were staying in. It was on my bucket list to go to the outlet so we decided to go check it out. It was not as big as I thought it would be and there was not as much stuff as I had imagined. However, I found some pretty great items. Some of my favorite items where, a Mary-Kate and Ashley brand hat, a cup with a Mickey Mouse pattern on it, two books that came with stickers, and a Disney button. It was an interesting experience. It was definitely very different from shopping at a regular Goodwill store. At the outlet you had to dig to find things. Epically the clothes and media such as books.¬† The prices here were the best part. Our total was under five dollars! It felt so good to cross another item off my bucket list. After my bucket list adventure we went to explore the mission San Louis Obispo de tolosa. We had a little bit of time before our tour started so we went to the gift shop. I got some nice souvenires there. It was a beautiful day to explore the mission. There was so much to see, like a well an oven, and bells. If you get a chance this mission is worth exploring. Plus there is also a museum inside. After exploring the mission we went to Whole Foods for lunch. After that we went back to the hotel to rest before the concert. The concert was at this amphitheater that was part of a winery. It was a very pretty venue. Before the show I waited in a very long line to get a t-shirt and hat but it was so worth it! I have a few Alice Cooper shirts but I hadn’t gotten a new one in a while. The show its self was amazing as always. I’ve been to a good amount of Alice Cooper shows and it’s always exciting! I loved singing along to some of my favorite songs like Escape, Poison, Bed of Nails, and School’s Out! I wish I would have been closer to the stage but I plan on getting a better seat the next time I go to one of his shows. However his show is always amazing no matter where I’m sitting! I plan on going to another show of his before the year is over. The next day it was time to head back home. We made a few stops before we officially got back home. Two of the places we stopped where Starbucks (as always) and the Madonna Inn. Outside of the Madonna Inn there was a really cool cow art piece that we took pictures with. It was a really awesome 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!

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!

I have to finish setting up my home studio because I’m going to be recording my demo soon! I can’t wait to start applying for voice acting jobs! I have so much fun when I’m doing voice over homework. I can’t wait until I start working in the world of voice acting! Also on Saturday I took some time to be creative and played with Model Magic! I made a bunch of little things from just two packages of Model Magic. Oh and I’ve also been using lots of bath bombs. I actually just ordered some more because I’ve been going through them so quickly! So, that’s what I’ve been up to lately. What about you?
