Things You’ll Find When You Aren’t Looking


One of my favorite things to do is go shopping. Whether it’s online, at the mall, or at Wal-Mart, I love it all. However, I especially love thrifting. For those who don’t know that term, “thrifting” is what people call shopping at thrift stores such as Goodwill or Waterfront Mission. Here in Pensacola, we have a couple of both of those thrift stores and I love them! Yesterday I went out with my mom to look around and all the neat stuff we found amazed us. The first item is a pink and black Juicy Couture backpack. Juicy has been one of my favorite brands ever since I fell in love with their Juicy Couture Couture perfume.


But of course, we all know that Juicy Couture is a well-established name brand. Which is why finding one of their brand new (tags still on it) bags surprised me.

Then I found a pair of leopard print heels that I adored, but I didn’t buy. The reason is that I’d been to a consignment shop and bought a pair that looked exactly like them. But I did get black heels with pink platforms on the bottom. Very stylish. These are my leopard print ones.


I was very excited to see a classy picnic basket there. I’ve always wanted one and now I have one so my boyfriend and I can go on the picnic day I’ve always dreamed of. I’ve never gone because I’ve saved it for someone special (And I’ve been looking for the perfect basket).


I was very excited to find out that the brown leather jacket I’d been gawking over last time I was there was still there. I bought it this time!


One of the coolest treasures, though, was this. It was something random that happened to catch my eye, but was so cool I had to get it. It’s perfect to hold the jewelry I usually wear so I don’t have to go searching for them every day.


While we were at the second Goodwill, I bought a black jacket to go with my current Mary Kay status outfit as part of the black and white club. We also found red dress jackets and tried them on. We saw the future: red jacket Mary Kay consultants. It was very fun and super inspirational.


Speaking of Mary Kay, we also found a classic black travel roll up bag and a handbag. Go figure!


I had a lot of fun and I know my mom did, too. It was definitely a day that we needed. Every so often you just need to get away from the stress of school, work, home, and everyday life. But I admit that I can’t wait to go again. I had found some other things that were really fun and made me smile.
