Today we take a break from our regularly scheduled program...

Today I would have posted my Econo Chic post but what I wanted to talk about is not ready. That by the way is code for: "I was too lazy to put together what I had planned, so instead I will do it next week." hehehehehe.... We will go back to our regular program next Sunday.

I do have other things to chat about. This weekend I was bad, but it made me extremely happy to be bad. I went on a crazy shoe shopping spree. I have not done something like that in ages! I have been so sick and stressed with work that this was a pick me up. I still want one more pair of shoes, that I saw at Steve Madden and once I get those I am going to put the breaks on the shopping and concentrate on saving money because I want to go back to school (I cannot believe I actually want to go back to college when I swore after I graduated from college the first time around, that I will never step foot into another school), get my motorcycle license and a couple other things that I have up my sleeves.

Aside from shoes I bought other goodies. After Kimberly Tia's food post, then Iyah buying some yummy looking goodies, and then yesterday the kick a** asian salad I had; I was missing living in NYC and being able to head into Chinatown to get all my Asian goodies. So after telling Mr. P my desire to go to an Asian market he informed me of one that is not too far from here. It is not a very big market but it had some of my favorite snacks so I was not complaining. I will go back with more time and pick up more things.

Shopping is not all I did. Mr. P and I went out to lunch yesterday and then that evening we went to a midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at E Street Cinema. They did not have a live cast, or props, the MC was a little annoying but I ended up having fun watching the film and listening to the rest of the movie goers interact with the movie. I was going to take a picture of my getup but we forgot and did not remember till after we went to bed. Oh well, maybe next time.

Anyway, I leave you with pictures of all my goodies:

So I have to mention, these first pair of AMAZING shoes you see here, were chosen by Mr. P. Doesn't he have great taste? He always finds the perfect stuff that screams me. He knows me so well.

I love these grey shoes. I am always getting everything in black, my mom used to tell me that I look like I am always in mourning. So when I saw these shoes I knew I had to get them.

We went into Steve Madden and I saw these shoes and it was love. Look at the back of the shoe! Made me feel like a rock star when I tried them on. They also had them open toe but I figure if I am going to get these shoes for the price they were selling them for, I want to be able to wear them in the winter time too!

These last shoes are also from Bakers. I have been eyeing them for a while but never even bothered trying them on. Then on Friday when I needed to leave the office for a while before I self combusted. I went to the mall and I saw that Bakers was having a sale. So I went in, saw them and I was surprised they still had my size, since my size has been sold out on the site for a while and the other Bakers store did not even have them on display anymore cause they sold out. Needless to say I went into the office in a better mood then when I left.

I have been looking for a laptop bag for a month or two and I have not had any luck. Last week when we were out walking around the mall, Mr. P saw this bag and pointed it out to me and we knew this was the bag I had to get. We did not get it then but on Friday when Mr. P came home he surprised me with it. The picture does not do it any justice. It is such a pretty and big bag. I LOVE IT! Thanks babe!

We also stopped by Hot Topic and they are having a buy one get one half off on hair accessories and jewelry and I just had to get these hair clips. They are so adorable!

Last but not least, my snacks that I got at the Asian market.

I love Yan, Yan's but I always get the chocolate flavor. I decided to try the strawberry flavored and lets just say, I really liked them. I dug into them as soon as I sat in the car. See.... All gone.

Another thing, I am in the search of a new moisturizer. I have super sensitive and weird skin. My T-zone is oily, my cheeks are normal but my chin and always super dry. See, told you it is weird. Just about all the moisturizer's irritate my skin. I currently use the Cosmedicine line which the night cream is fantastic, I love the tinted cream, when I use it I do not even need to use foundation but the regular moisturizer makes my skin feel irritated. So now I am going to try Hope in a jar by Philosophy. I have heard great things about this brand and have always been curious. I hate buying expensive moisturizer's because so many of them just make my skin all kinds of crazy and then I get upset that I spent the money. I am going to start doing research on pharmacy moisturizer's and see if I can find a good cheaper alternative.

I am curious to know, what moisturizer do you guys use?

Until next time, Ciao! xoxo

I also have weird skin. My forehead and cheeks are always fine, my nose is oily, and my chin is dry. It's annoying.

When I'm having problems with the dry skin I use Nivea's Creme. It feels thick and greasy, so use lightly on your dry areas. On top of that I use my regular face stuff. Nivea also has other products, from lotions to shampoo to make-up. I love Germany and it's products. :)
Check out their website

My boytoy and I always use the Creme when we go snowboarding, since it protects our faces from windburn. It's also good to put on the hands before sleeping, cuz then you wake up with happy soft skin. :)

And the great thing about trying it, is a small tin (can be found at Wal-mart) is about a buck. Cheap, and awesome. Proven since about 1911. :)

I am so going to try that. I am going to see about stopping by Walmart tomorrow. Thanks for the info. :)
