Just Bought & French Macarons

Before I get to my post, I have some stuff on eBay, check it out!

Today I went to Kohl's with my mom since she had a 30% off coupon.  I only wanted to get some socks and tights.  I came out with 6 pairs of socks & a Simply Vera by Vera Wang top! (the tights were all icky)  I also bought 2 donuts ;) I should have owed my mom $24, but she bought that Max Studio dress from me that I was thinking of selling.  I'll probably spend more money tomorrow though, going to the mall with my best friend ;)

The Vera Wang top is nice, but the necklace attached to it makes it hang funny. It's detachable so I'm going to take it off, get a longer ribbon & turn it into a normal necklace. So now the shirt is a nice basic & then I can dress it up with the necklace.  Everything else I tried on was WAY too big, this was almost too big and it's an XS... o.O

I also just made some French Macarons from this recipe! This was my first try and my mom didn't think I would like them. But I was determined to make them because 1. they look cute and 2. its sugar, chocolate and almonds, what's not to like?  I just tried one and it was so tasty!! :) Here they are:
Lastly...the old woman that lives across the street from us had a tag sale so my mom and I headed over to say hi and chat. I ended up buying a shelf thing for $4!! Perfect to move some of my better Potter collectibles onto and make more room for the rest! :) (the left is the new one, the right is the new layout of the old one)

  2. But it is a smart idea the necklace on the t-shirt. Maybe you can make a lighter one!

  11. Those kohls coupons... always get me.
    I like the top and I'm glad you can detach/improve the necklace.
    You are totally right about the fit, it seems everything has gotten bigger - either that's how the designers want it to be worn, or they just want everyone to feel smaller.
