Damn you, H & M!


Seriously, how do a series of errands end up in an unnecessary awesome mini-spree at H & M?!?!  DIVINE INTERVENTION!  Woohoo!  Anyway, today after work I went to get a friend a gift card to a lovely spa, got a gift for Ian’s my little cousin Saba… (she reads the blog so I will just show the packaging)- my heart beats a little faster at the sight of that Tiffany blue!  Shout out to girlfriend who is turning 21 this weekend!  I am actually going to Atlanta for this shindig and cannot wait!  Ian’s aunt told me to “take lots of pictures.”  Really, Ger-as if you should expect any less from me! 🙂  People get annoyed at my camera-readiness at times!  hahah

OK, back to the subject at hand.  Then I went to Doggie Style, the best doggie boutique in Philly-they have numerous locations-to get Oscar his “after dinner treat.”  Everynight after he eats his din-din, he expects to get a few minutes of chewing on this…it is about 3 feet long for real!

So rediculous, but boy was he a happy camper when he saw Mama got him a new treat!

See- he is SO smiling for the camera!  OK, moving on, I then went to H & M just to CHECK OUT their selection of eternity scarves (suggested highly by my girl Lisa at www.pamperedwithpaige.com) and this is where the “disaster” began!  i just wanted one…And left with 4.  Yup, you heard right.  Four.  See:

This last one is the one I’m wearing today…And all together now:

Ok, so I realize they look like a mound of yarn in these pictures, but these scarves are the BOMB!  Love them!  We realized they also have decoy names and come in the name of “infinity scarves, eternity scarves or collars.”  Whatever.  I call them awesome.

I totally showed that bag who was the boss!

So, I ALSO got my delivery of my two coats for 60 bucks (30 dollars EACH!) from Old Navy!  I am wearing the white puffy one today due to the disgusting rain.

So yesterday also included a 4-miler, on the treadmill.  I HAVE to give a shout out to my girl Lindsay from www.goodiesgalore.wordpress.com who was VERY convinced that the running outside was FAR better than th treadmill.  Yesterday, I kinda was agreeing with her.  My knees were killing me, and this is usually not an area of injury for me.  Point is, maybe you are right, Lindz!  After that I took a lovely shower and used Philosophy’s belgian waffle body wash..yummmm! I didn’t want to get out!

Love it!  I also encountered an issue that I need help with.  I currently use Aveda’s volumizing shampoo becuase when my hair was longer, that is what I needed.  Now that it is short, I think I am in need of a new shampoo.  WHAT SHAMPOO DO YOU USE?  Please comment and let me know, or email me at jessdownes@yahoo.com  ok, outtie for now!  Enjoy your Thursday!

  1. You. Me. Shopping. STAT! Ughh my wardrobe is looking grim these days and clearly you have a great eye for frugal fabulous fashion. (although mama’s not quite affording Tiffany’s these days!)

  2. Hi! I just found your blog through Lisa’s and I wanted to show some love. Is that a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel? We have 2 of them and I love them a bunch.

    I’m obsessed with the new eternity/infinity scarf trend and picked up one at Target. I need to checkout H&M next time I visit the mall. I agree that Philosophy products make me not want to get out of the shower either. They smell so good!

    • Thanks SOOOOO much for showin’ the love! You are awesome! That IS a cav, EXCEPT he is VERY large for his breed. They said he was pure bred, but sometimes I wonder! Cavs are supposed to be 18-24 pounds. Oscar is like 28. He is “big boned” lol! Tell me about your cavs! I LOVE them! Do you have a blenheim one? I want one of those! Ocsar is tri-colored. 😉 Thanks again, girlfriend!

  3. Great blog, glad LP hooked us up with another great one! I use Pureology shampoo for color treated hair-I love all their shampoo and conditioner(s) etc. I like to switch off and love Redken’s line of “All Soft” but on a budget, you can’t beat good ol standby Pantene : )
