Things that make me happy!

I love going to the supermarket, discovering there are new magazines out and they have great gifts attached. Today I pick up the Madison Magazine and it had two choices of Nail Polish. I picked the 'Yummy Mummy' which is a perfect, soft brown. It looks gorgeous against a tan. Makes me feel very 'yummy mummy' like and also very thrifty.

Last week I got a blue Mimco bag. I really wanted the orange one but couldn't find one anywhere. I have a few rules I need to follow in the search for the gifts. It has to be a magazine I will read, I can't already have the magazine at home and they have to be gifts I'll really use. Occasionally, I'll break the rules, like for the Elizabeth Arden lip gloss, but I really did read the magazine three times. There was also a great eyeliner attached to another magazine, so I had to buy the magazine for everyone I knew because it was too good for them to miss out. It sure makes grocery shopping a lot more fun.

Plus, when you buys things at the supermarket, it counts as groceries.


  1. Hello - I popped over here from Mamamia a couple of days ago and just wanted to say hi, your blog is lovely!

    I love the comment about things bought at the supermarket counting as groceries. I completely agree.

    And you look awesome in your shirt skirt. :)

  2. Thank you so much for your nice words. It's great to get feedback. I hope you come back. Have a great weekend.

  3. I got the other polish. I think I need this one too.
