Birthday Purchases

 As most of you know my birthday was on the 5th.  I got to go on a shopping spree!  I wanted to share with you some of my purchases:

(Forever 21)

  I've always loved the letterman cardigans, and my last name starts with an F,
so I thought this was kind of perfect!

Neon V-Neck Slub Top
 (Forever 21)

 I got this tee in the neon pink shade above.  It's even more neon in person!
I also got it in a size larger than normal because I've really been loving the baggier look.

 (Forever 21)
I'm not quite sure if this is excatly the same top I purcahsed, but it basically looks the same.  Mine is just a different shade, it's a very light pale pastel purple, maybe Lilac.  I like this top because it's got that loose fit, dolman style.  Paired with skinny pants, I really love the simple, easy look.  

I'm disappointed I can't find the other two fabulous cardigans that I also purchased from Forever 21.  I searched on their website, but couldn't find them, probably because they were on clearance.  I'll have to show you outfit pictures with them soon!  One is a slouchy cream cardigan with large black hearts all over, super cute!  Another is a more fitted black cardigan with white bows all over.  Both are really cute, and were very affordable since the weather is warming up! 

I had a gift card to Wet Seal, that I used as well.  I haven't actually shopped in there before, so it was fun to check it out!  Wet Seal's website doesn't let you save the pictures, it only does that zoom in view thing, so here are links to the items I purchased:

Non-clothing Purchases:

The Mortal Instruments Series Book 4:
City of Fallen Angels

I love this book series, my husband, although he hasn't read any of the series, was the one to hear about, and he thought it sounded like something I would like, so one of the things he had got me for Christmas were the first 3 books in the series, and thankfully the 4th one came out right in time for my birthday!  I definitely got drawn into the world Cassandra Clare has created!

The Cosby Show:
Seasons 3 & 4

I am a huge fan of The Cosby Show, almost nothing makes me laugh as much as The Huxtable family!  Since I have seasons 1 & 2, I knew I needed to own the rest of them, so I started with the next two in line.  I could watch The Cosby show over and over again!  It was one of my favorite shows growing up, and in fact I love it now even more! 
Well, I think that's the majority of the things I purchased with birthday money.  It was definitely a fun day of shopping!   I might have to do another post for some of the items that were given to me.  I was very blessed this year!  And I appreciate all my loved ones who were so good to me this birthday.

I hope you girls are having a good week so far, sorry I haven't been posting as much.  That will be improving starting today.  Things at work are still about the same, so most of my attention has been to that.  It's been sad not reading most of your blogs the last couple of weeks, and it's definitely not because I don't want to! So I will be stopping by all your amazing blogs here shortly! :)

Have a wonderful afternoon!

I'm so glad you had a nice Birthday, and wow you did some serious shopping didn't you? ;)

I love the look of the Relaxed Slub Knit Top, and the Lace Shoulder Top. I can't wait to see you style them!

I used to watch The Cosby Show all the time with my family! The earlier seasons are definitely the better ones too! So funny!

LOVE ALL your choices!!!! Those are some beautiful clothes. I really like the mini dress. I have a pair of summer wedges that would look great with it :)
Glad you have fun shopping and enjoyed your B-Day....Kara XOXO

It's always fun to go shopping after a birthday. That letterman cardigan is really pretty.
And the loose fitting top looks like it'll be really pretty on you. Can't wait to see it in an outfit.

Sorry to hear that the work situation hasn't improved.
