Treat Yourself Tuesday: A day out with my best friend!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I am officially on Summer vacation, woot!!

That means more time for “live blogging” rather than pre- written posts, yay!

Today I am linking up with Becky over at Olives n’ Wine for Treat Yourself Tuesday!


A couple weeks ago one of my best friends called me up and asked if I wanted to do a Market Research with her and get paid for it. I am always up for some extra cash so I decided why not!

On Saturday, we headed to the Garden State Plaza (a very big mall in New Jersey, pretty well known). Before meeting for the Market Research we grabbed lunch at California Pizza Kitchen. I love CPK, but have only been for dinner and for dinner I usually do pizza. Since it was lunch time we were both in the mood for salads, and CPK had a nice selection.

I decided to get this roasted veggie salad and added grilled chicken to it. It was SO good, I need to go back soon to get it. Give me roasted veggies any day and I am a happy girl.


After that we had about a half an hour to kill so we decided to head into our favorite store, the Loft. They were having 50% off everything sale so we decided to peruse.

Now if you have been reading the blog, you know that I get a little weird about buying myself clothes. I do it like twice a year and I know that I need to get better about it.

The last time I bought clothes, I had bought a pair of my fav shorts at the Loft, to replace all my bigger sizes. I had decided that I wanted to come back when they were on sale to buy more. I spotted a pair of dark denim shorts that I had last year that were too big so I decided to get a new pair in my size. They also had these adorable sandals for only $10!



So impulsive of me, but totally worth it!

After that we did our market research for a few hours. Before leaving the mall, Kathryn wanted to take me into this store called Lush. Have you ever heard of it? It was my first time there and it was the coolest store ever!! It is basically a store filled with beauty masks, body washes, lotions, shampoos, etc that are all natural and smell amazing. They have all these stations set up for you to try their products. Every item lists the ingredients and tells you who made it.

I decided to test out a solid body wash, that melts as you get it wet. After trying it and smelling it, I decided to treat myself! I normally am the girl spending $1.50 on CVS Body Wash, but why not have some fun? This body wash was $6.95 and it smells like Skittles!


If you ever see a Lush near you, please go in, it is just such a cool store! I want to go back and treat myself to a face mask!!

I had such a fun day hanging with my best friend! We don’t always get to see each other but when we do it is always a great time and a real treat! πŸ™‚

How did you treat yourself this week?

Have you ever heard of Lush?

  1. I love Lush – some of their products are on my Christmas list every year : ) I am treating myself by taking an extra day off work before the long weekend and an extra day off work after…. 5 day weekend yes please!
