Weekend Finds (Too Good Not to Share!)

Hello, everyone! As I mentioned yesterday, my mom and I did some shopping this weekend, and my finds are just too good not to share with you! There's nothing in this world I love more than a sale, a dollar bin and Lilly Pulitzer at TJ Maxx. Here are my weekend finds...

****


I found this fabulous flower clip at Michael's and thought it was the perfect addition to a simple cardigan. Everywhere I went on Sunday I got tons of compliments and 'oohs' and 'awws.' I also snagged it in pink!


I finally found some lovely pink and green frames for my office! 


I hit the dollar bins at Michael's again and found these adorable note cards and pen. "Everything's better with sprinkles."


I've been eye-balling this Cynthia Rowley candle for a while and found it on sale for $3 at TJ Maxx over the weekend- score!


Another Michael's find- mini cupcake liners with pink high heels! I've included some pictures below of cupcakes I made last night :)


I want to throw a party just to get to wear this necklace. The sparkle and bow make me want to celebrate!

These Betsey Johnson sunglasses are the perfect mix of classic and trendy- tortoise shell frames with pink legs.

And the ultimate weekend find- Lilly Pulitzer "Pandamonium" Originals large and small cosmetic cases. Cha-ching!

Here are the yummy strawberry cupcakes with vanilla frosting that I make last night! I was initially just going to do mini cupcakes, but decided to bake a few full size too! The pink leopard liners were sent to me by Summer B :)

I love hittin' T.J.'s and Marshall's for those unexpected surprises! I have found a ton of Lilly and snatch it all up. My last find was all 3 of the Lilly perfumes....I bought every bottle! Yeahhhhhhhh! They were only $16, woooooohoooooooooo!

Love,
Mrs. Kindergarten

Wow! what great finds. I so want the cupcake notelets. You just can't find decent stationary here in Spain.
I now (amongst all my other defects) have "notelet envy!"
Your sunglasses are really cute. The perfect pair to do a "Thelma & Louise" impression with this summer ;-)

Ok.....so I read your post and thought, hey, I will go to TJ Maxx on my lunch break and low and behold, I found the frames, a large green one, and a smaller pink one. I wanted a large pink one but the green is pretty cute too!! Just wanted you to know the post inspired me to go by some of my own!!!

Julie ... you're a girl after my own heart. I LOVE Marshalls for their Home Goods as well as clothing and TJ Maxx ... the hunt is so fun because you never know what you'll find, it all changes so frequently. When my girlfriend and I are together on a Friday afternoon, we often hit both of these AND Michaels and sometimes Joannes and never fail to come away with fun stuff! xoxo

Kristin said...

I had Betsey Johnson sunglasses very similar to that and I lost them...I'm still mourning them. Love your pink stems!

I know who I want to spend my weekends with from now on. Julie it looks like you had a Glamorous weekend. I can't wait to see what you do this weekend!

MARGARITA BLOOM said...

Gorgeous finds Julie! Can you believe I've never been to TJMaxx....I think I might need to go... lol... Cute pink frames!! and yummy cupcakes! Mmmm..

Trish said...

Goodness gracious girly girl, could you have put more fabulous fun into one post? I think not!!

I can't believe you found such lovely Lilly goodies at TJMaxx! You are truly a Maxxinista! I would have been squealing like a little girl all the way to the register! :) LOVE the Pandamonium print to, just too cute :)

Your flower brooch(es) are just presh, no wonder you got so many compliments! The note cards are the best (yes sprinkles make everything better for SURE) and the cupcake liners are perfect, and holy wow I need those Betsey sunglasses too - must put a trip to TJMaxx on my weekend to do list, although I think I need you as my good luck shopping charm!

Would love to be sharing coffee and a cupcake with you right about now ;-) SOON! LOVE YOU!!
