Hello! My husband and I had our first anniversary last weekend (we got married 06-02-2012 because of the beautiful math. I can weird about numbers sometimes...) and in order to celebrate, we went out to our big mall to go shopping! We did other things, too, but this post is all about the things I picked up on that trip, as well as a couple random extras.
The first thing I picked up was Ke$ha's newest CD, "Warrior".
Next, we hit up a couple different candy shops, namely See's Candies and Lindt since they give out free samples! At See's we got a sample of their Divinity, which is super tasty, and I picked up a box of their "Little Pops".
At Lindt, we got samples of their milk chocolate truffles and my husband bought two thin bars from their "Hello My Name Is..." line in caramel brownie and cookies and cream. He really liked the cookie one, but I thought the caramel brownie one was better (I think I just really like caramel). I didn't get any pictures since we ate them right away.
After getting our chocolate fix, we went to Barnes and Noble. I really wanted to pick up a copy of Make-Up Artist Magazine (they're one of the companies who put on IMATS, the International Make-Up Artist Trade Show), but my local Barnes and Noble doesn't carry it for some reason. Luckily, the B&N in our big mall is gigantic, so they did have it in stock (if you're interested in picking it up, it's in the "entertainment" section of the newsstand). I also picked up the June 2013 issue of Allure. I know I should just subscribe to it (better yet, subscribe to Sample Society and get a year of Allure free), but I don't want to get pestered by them when my subscription runs out.
I also bought a pot of Dream Cream.
And that's all I got at our big mall! I do have some other randoms that I wanted to include in this post since I did buy them over our anniversary weekend, but I got them from different places.
One thing we did for our anniversary was go out for brunch. The place we went to gets crazy busy, and since you can't make reservations, you just have to show up and hope you don't have to wait to long. We ended up with a 40 minute wait before they could seat us, so we went to a mall that was across the street. It's a special mall that houses incredibly high end stores (it has a really stupid tag line; "shops of distinction"), including a Tiffany and Co. and a place that only sells handles for doors, dressers, cabinets, and the like. We went to the Crate & Barrel since I've been on the hunt for a recipe card box. And I found a nice one!
I also bought a cookbook!
My two other random items are My Little Pony Blind Bags I got at Target. They finally got more in stock, and they got the crystal-shine series that includes figures of the Wonderbolts. I've seen these before at Hot Topic and at my local comic book shop, but they sell them for $5, which isn't really worth it to me (Target has them for $3.19). I got two, figuring that as long as I didn't get Rainbow Dash, I'd be happy. And I didn't, so yay!
So there's my Anniversary shopping haul (with extras)! I did get one extra special thing that my husband bought for me, but I want to make a post for that by itself.
Thanks for reading! <3!
