Today, Casey, J., and I spent the afternoon down in West Palm Beach guitar shopping. Well, Casey was guitar shopping. I picked up some miscellaneous gear and music accessories for Casey and I even picked up a few things for my Bass!
I simply couldn’t help myself. I’ve been wanting a Ukulele for forever, so I had to play around with at least a few! I will have my Ukulele very soon! (…and I can’t wait until I do!)
Later, Casey went down to the theatre to help prepare everything for Tommy Tune and The Manhattan Rhythm Kings who’ll be in tomorrow. So I had to run to Wal-Mart for some Coke and found myself browsing about and I am so happy I did!
I hate Wal-Mart. I loathe it. Going at night isn’t so bad since the average surplus of swamp-things aren’t meandering about without a clue. It’s like Zombieland in that place, except I can’t bludgeon anyone in the head.
HOWEVER, tonight I completely lucked out. I found 3 awesome nail polishes by Hard Candy for $1 each! One Dollar. I found 2 mascaras by Hard Candy, one of which is gold glitter (um, YAY!) each of these were also only $1. I picked up a neutral nail color with enriching qualities for your nails by Nicole that was also, you guessed it, $1. It was awesome!
I took a peak at the clearance accessories and found the most adorable black & glitter and Zebra print bobby-pins! I had to get them! The, I looked down and saw something I couldn’t quite believe… it was… snap-bracelets! Yes, SNAP BRACELETS! I didn’t buy one. I bought TWO! One if a glittery zebra print, and the other is a glittery zebra print, but purple instead of white. I feel like I’m 7 years old ago. I through down fistta-cuffs over snap bracelets back in the day.
I also picked up a very plain, classic (Keds-looking) pair of white sneakers ($5) and two tank tops, one black and the other is white with a colorful cheetah print ($4.50) each. And two adorable pairs of cat-eye sunglasses. I’ve been looking for an all black pair, but I found at Wal-Mart were a solid white pair… which I LOVE… and a black pair with teal blue along the top. Each one only cost $3 on final clearance!!
Oh! and last night, I picked-up some goodies from Target! I had been loving these black and white with a splash of color notebooks for a few months. The themes are just so adorable: Bright Red Fuzzy Dice, A Green Vintage Bicycle laying against a dirty ally wall, A Teal Blue Motor Scooter on a stone street. I just think they’re so cute. Anyway, they were all on clearance, so I finally bought them. Who knows what i’ll use them for, but they’ll look adorable on my desk!
The reason I was even looking in the notebook aisle though, was because I needed a new “Spontaneous Creativity”/Brainstorming notebook. I keep on me at all times. I fill them with blog ideas, poetry, quotes I like, lyrics I like, original lyrics (usually random one-liners), various lists (i’m a big “list-er”.) pretty much anything creative or inspirational for me.
I picked up this one, which I think is adorable! It’s a vintage type-writer! So cute. and it’s the successor to the “Notes” reign. 🙂
There was another notebook, very similar to the type-writer notebook, but this one has a vintage record player and reads “let the good times roll”. I’m going to write all my developing lyrics (once transferred from the sparatic notebook, of course).
Overall, this weekend was quite relaxing and I got my shopping fix at a very low price. I’m a happy girl. Now, a jam-packed week ahead for me and the theatre… I’m still trying to mentally prepare.
