My name is Carlyn and I like to shop

We all do it.
Some more then others.
However, if you're finding great things at great prices how can you be expected to walk away?

Here are some of the things I have purchased recently:


I'll admit this was an unhealthy impulse buy, but something in me just had to have it.
We made french toast with this bread and it was better then expected.
I picked up a second bag this weekend to pair with my next purchase:

Caramel Apple nutty butter from The Smart Kitchen.
Every month she releases two flavors for people to buy.
This jar came yesterday and I immediately sampled it.
I cannot wait to pair the two and to see what flavors are in store for November.

Girly Girl

Holiday nail polish collections are currently popping up in stores and they are beautiful.
The three OPI colors below are from the Skyfall 007 collection. All of them have the most unique micro glitter that is just to die for. The Essie is from the Holiday 2012 collection and is unlike any other color I currently own, so naturally I had to have it.

Red-You only live twice
Blue-On her majesty's secret service
Brown-The world is not enough
Baby Blue[Essie]- Where's my chauffeur?

Worth every dollar.


I have been eying these coral bad girl flats since June at my local boutique. They're loud and kick ass...kind of like someone I know ;)
They were on sale for $15 this past weekend, and lucky for them (and me) they were given a new home.

I *think* and *hope* I found the perfect running sneaker.
Ladies and gentlemen the Asic  Cumulus Gel 14.

These baby blues cost me a pretty penny which has me worried because I cannot return them once I've worn them.
I have been searching the internet to find a lower price but have come up short.
They feel right. Firm yet comfortable, but how will I know until I run in them!?



This makes me happy.
I am a mug collector of sorts.
When Eddie and I have our home we will not own a mug set, instead we will have a variety that resembles us (or me since I am the coffee drinker)
I like it that way.

Also I found out there will be a Christmas version of this mug coming out 12/1 and you can bet your bottom dollar I will pick it up...that day.

Have you made any fun purchases lately?
Tell me!


  1. WOw you've been busy! I love that Skyfall collection. I got caramel apple coffee but it's not great. Pumpkin spice is so much better. Be careful with those shoes!

  2. I have those shoes as well. They are great! I hope you enjoy them.

  3. That bread just made me drool a little bit, and the thought of French Toast with it even more so. And a lot of people at my store love the shoes you bought! I'll be waiting ever so patiently to hear what you think of them! Good luck! :)

  4. Where did you get the sneakers from? I usually get my running sneakers from a running store because they allow returns/exchanges even after you wear them. I usually got to Super Runners Shop in Huntington or Runners Edge in Farmingdale and they both allow it. :)

  5. Writing down the name of the red OPI now - I LOVE IT...will have to see if the salon has it for next time....You ARE my sister - I know it now for sure - you are a mug collector as am I! My husband got so irritated he agreed to buy me my Longaberger table settings in full with a mug set so that everything we had looked identical. Too bad he doesn't know that I still buy them and just bring them to work!

  6. Hey girl! I love all your purchases! LOL! Does the Nutty Butter come with actual nutritional information?

  7. Love the spiky flats!! I am on the lookout for some new running shoes - but not sure which way to go. I'm thinking brooks, but I run in nike's now and they are just ok. Hope yours work for you!

  8. That bread looks amazing! I've never worn asic, but I was just fitted into a pair of Brooks and love them.

  9. OMG- I love to shop too. It is so hard to restrain, but I have no budget!

  10. Haha I have a shopping problem too!! I avoid going to the mall now because I don't want to spend all of my money! :( Your purchases look great - Essie is my FAV polish!!

  11. So glad you decided to go with Asics. Asics are the way to go!! :)
