A Quick Icing Haul and Starbucks Tip!

Good afternoon everyone! I just wanted to show you some goodies I picked up yesterday. I went shopping with some of my birthday money (I love it, 26 yrs old and still got some b-day cash!). I wanted to get some new clothes but I can never find anything I like. I went to 2 different malls. At the first one I got a cute shirt at New York and Company for 1/2 off but ended up returning it. I loved how it fit but it had this crystal broach thing on it that was sewn on and pinned on so you could technically remove it to wash it... but I know me and I know I'd ruin it. So back to the mall I went, a different one this time, to return the shirt. I wanted to get some basic button down oxford style shirts but I have mega issues with sizing on those. The medium is too small in the chest area, I cannot button them... but the large is HUGE on me. Ugh so annoying!!!

But I digress. I stopped in Trade Secret to look at the OPI Shrek Collection but nothing spoke to me for $8.50 a piece so I passed. Funky Dunkey was sold out but I think if it was there I might have grabbed it, though it is close to China Glaze's Grape Pop from Up & Away. Rumple's Wiggin' is really pretty but so close to China Glaze's Light as Air so I passed. I might go back and get What's with the Cattitude? but I am not sure. I am not a huge OPI fan, that darn brush!

So I went to Icing because I have seen some great blog posts on Icing's polishes and they are usually always buy one get one 1/2 off so I thought I'd see what I could find. So sure enough they were BOGO 1/2 off so I got Blackout and Grape-a-licious then I wandered into the back and couldn't resist the black glitters on clearance, a set of 5 for $8.oo so for $0.50 less than one OPI color I got 5 Icing colors. Not bad!! They're a teeny bit smaller than full size but still a bargain!

So here are the goods (click image for larger size):

So now some good news from Starbucks! If you're a Frappuccino lover like I am rejoice!!! From now until May 17th between the hours of 3 pm and 5 pm daily you can enjoy your favorite Frappuccino for 1/2 off! That's a great deal! Yummmy!!!!!!!

When I'm not in the mood for coffee I love the double chocolate chip frap OR

Have you heard of the Cap'n Crunch? It's strawberries n cream frap with 1 pump toffeenut and 1 pump hazelnut.. [for a tall or grande.. 2 pumps of each for a venti] tastes JUST like Cap'n Crunch!

OMG! That sounds amazing EmilyAnne! I am totally ordering that ASAP I adore cap. crunch! Thanks for the heads up! Yummy!

They have a CHAI frap?!? How did I not know this????!!!!

I usually get either light mocha or light caramel, no whip.

Oh duh I forgot to mention it tastes like Cap'n Crunch Crunch Berries! haha Not just plain Cap'n Crunch... although I guess this might be a fairly obvious statement.....

Lexi- I know! I didn't either until I went online. Maybe all locations don't have it...?? I never remember seeing it on a menu!

LOL EmilyAnne I figured. Sounds so good!
