Yesterday I started my Pilates classes again. I am very sore today, but I must admit it felt great to start working out again. After class, I met up with Candice and we did our Saturday tradition of going to Starbucks and doing a little shopping. We headed to Highland Village first because we both had home decor on the mind.
I ended up finally using a gift card we got for our wedding from Pottery Barn. I got this beautiful blanket for our sofa. Kevin says our dog needs his “own blankie” so I got the new one for myself. I really love the texture of it and it’s also very soft! It retails for $79.50. Oh and by the way, our dog is sleeping on the NEW blankie as I type this post. Hmmphhh!
Because I’ve started my fitness routine back up again, I wanted to pick up some leggings from Lulu Lemon. I got the Special Edition Wunder Under Pintuck leggings. I was previously wearing cheap leggings from A’Gaci but they are sort of see-through if you bend over so uh…not great for working out. PS- Size up in these ones.
Today (Sunday) Kevin and I went to Target so I could check out the Tucker collection. It was already picked over for some of the items, but they had a lot in stock of most of the things available for purchase. For reference to my fellow Houstonians, I went to the Target off of Sawyer.
First, I’ll show you the items I DID purchase:
I got this green and pink dress. They didn’t have a size medium, so I just got the large because I would belt it anyway. The length is perfect for a work dress…and, it’s NOT BLACK! Let’s celebrate!!!!!!!
I also got this pretty tank on sale for $16.99 and a white ruffle Henley for $14.99:
Some of the items I passed on today were:
Finally, while grocery shopping today I saw that L’Oreal’s lash serum was on sale (at Kroger) so I finally got some. I don’t think it grows lashes but it keeps them soft and moisturized. I also got a REVLON navy blue eyeliner. I’m not sure why, but for some reason I felt compelled to have navy liner. I know Rachel Bilson loves to wear navy liner so we’ll see how it works for me:
I also picked up the new issue of Women’s Health which I plan to start subscribing to. I LOVE Carrie Underwood. Her body looks amazing in these pics!
I've been debating on the Stila blush. I really want to try it! I bought the Loreal lash serum a while back and was diligent about using it for about a week or so, but since then it's been sitting in my medicine cabinet, where I tend to to stash unused cosmetics. I guess I didn't have the patience to wait for results…or didn't notice enough of a difference in the condition of my lashes to continue using it.
Love all your new stuff! I got the cream blouse that you ended up not buying. I'm not a fan of prints (on me), and when I do wear prints I'm super picky. I too sized down.
Love the table runner. What is the difference between Special Edition wunder unders and the regular ones? I love Carrie Underwood and can't wait to get the magazine.

Thanks for the review on Tucker. I always look forward to your weekend shopping posts. Saves me money when I can live vicariously through you shopping. I love Carrie too. She has amazing legs. I read somewhere that she doesn't miss a day on the treadmill.
I love the print blouse! That is on my to-buy list! Carrie Underwood always looks amazing…I may just have to pick up that magazine!

The table liner goes perfect with your decor! What a great find!
Can't wait to see the navy eyeliner! I've been thinking about getting eyeliner other than black and I think blue makes your eyes look whiter (or at least blue mascara does?) 🙂
Lets see a pic of you in workout gear! I want to see how those lulu pants fit–also, are they long enough for us tall girls?
anon they are a crop style but they are quite long. 🙂 I will take a pic the next time I go to Pilates!
Oh hon, I am so sorry to hear about your friends. One of my closest friend passed away 2 weeks back. He was 26, he was the healthiest and the sweetest in our entire class. He was running on the treadmill and passed out all of a sudden; he was gone by the time they took him to the hospital. Just reminds us to live each day fully and without any regrets.
I cant wait to see a pic with stila blush. I am contemplating getting it.
thanks lynette- I am also very sorry for your loss…it's always so tragic when it's a young and healthy person.
FYI, ladies who are interested in Women's Health. I happened to pick it up while grocery shopping today at Albertson's. With my receipt I got a coupon for Magazines.com for $5 off a subscription. That makes a 6-issue subscription only $4.97, or a 10-issue subscription only $10.
Funny, I saw that black houndstooth skirt at Target the other day and thought 'that looks like something Veronika would like.' Ha! You should definitely go to another Target and get your size!
Great post! That Stila blush looks just like my HG blush – NARS mata hari, I love how it lights up my face.
So happy to hear you're getting back into working out, motivates me to keep up with it too 🙂
I really love that printed blouse you got! It doesn't look like something I would even pick up in the picture on the hanger but it looks fabulous on you. I can't wait to see how you style it!
And I did wayyyy too much shopping this weekend (but it was so much fun!)… I actually just blogged about all of my purchases!
That blanket looks niiiiice and guess what? We got a beautiful knit blanket from PB as a wedding gift!! It's a chunky knit in a burnt orange colour (perfect for our main level).
I reeeeeally love that table runner – wow!! Looks fantastic!

The blanket you picked out looks comfy & cute! I love Pottery Barn (and Crate & Barrel), but too bad their stuff is out of my budget ATM (I'm still a college student). Hopefully after law school, I'll have the $ to spend on nice looking & good quality furniture!
BTW, I love how gorgeous Carrie has gotten ever since she's been working out (I always thought she was a lot prettier and more down to Earth than Jessica Simpson – don't you?) Carrie's legs are to die for! Gah, I need to start working out again! I don't care if cold weather is right around there corner – her legs are hot!
Women's Health magazine is a great magazine to subscribe to – I've been a subscriber for 5 years now, and my current subscription runs through until 2014! 😀
Oh,honey.Why not get a handbag?Louis Vuitton Rivington maybe a good choice!

I'm pretty sure I spotted you and Candice at Nordstrom Saturday afternoon. 🙂
amy- that's so funny someone else told me the same thing! we were there briefly to exchange something. How funny that two people spotted us!
So sorry to hear about your loss.
On a lighter note, Carrie's legs are sick, I think I might have to pick that magazine up today!
I just got the floral top and I love it! I did not see the dress you got. Perfect for work:)
