This n That Tuesday!!

Tuesday seems like the perfect day.....to piece together several pieces of information.  Like, where did I find the accessories from one of yesterday's outfits??  So glad you asked!

I recently found the shoes at Ross for eleven dollars.  I really love them, though they are the Bobs shoes, Sketchers failed attempt to take on Toms.  I go through black flats fairly quickly and was happy to find another pair I liked at a reasonable price.
This fun scarf was one dollar at Goodwill!!  The necklace is a clearance Simply Vera necklace from Kohls bought a year ago.

One of the reasons I love ULTA is the rewards program.  Once a quarter, they allow customers to select free items according to how many purchases you make during the time period.  I recently selected this Olivia Garden circular brush and the Macadamia Hot Oil Healing Treatment for ZERO!!   
Did you see THIS RESEARCH today about the Mediterranean diet?   Pretty impressive....and I like everything on this diet!  I just might give it a try!
Finally, Gigi has been doing some smart shopping as well.  She ordered this jacket from clearance at the COLDWATER CREEK OUTLET for just $13!
The one below she purchased at her favorite store,  TUESDAY MORNING for only $11!!
Now, that is one Terrific Tuesday...go out an enjoy it!!

Everyone has until 5PM (CST) on Tuesday to register HERE for the free active wear outfit from Hydrochic.  Winner will be announced on Wednesday!!

Your "living-like-you-feel-40" tip of the day:  Variety is the spice of life!!  Shop in new places and experience new things.  Bargain hunting can be tons of fun...do it!


  1. I don't know what happened with Coldwater Creeks catalogs, they had a sudden change of style, nothing but sequins and blonds with fur-trimmed sweaters :(

    My Mom and I ventured into a CC Outlet last summer and it was a pleasant surprise after being turned off by their re-done catalog.

  2. What a perfect prize for shopping diligently at Ulta. The outfits and accessories look smashing. I'm all about finding a great bargain. This time of year, as seasons change, seems to be the best time to steal a deal.
    Happy Monday! xx, Heather

  3. I LOVE Ulta's rewards program! Not long ago, my Hot Tools curling iron finally gave up the ghost. Thanks to a sale and rewards points, I replaced it for 30 dollars...(it was 39 on sale.)

    I could spend all day in that store...one of my faves.

  4. I wish we had a Ross store! Love the little flats!!

  5. I love the flats!! They are so cute.
    Great finds and both jackets certainly look a lot more expensive!

    I couldn't live without olive oil and get mine from Portugal.

  6. I love the shoes! Very cute. And it's always so nice to get something really pretty at a great price.

  7. I think I may need to switch from Sephora to Ulta. I spend a pretty penny at Sephora but they just give you a tiny sample every 100 points. Those brushes are a great quality and expensive at the beauty supply. How cute is Gigi?

  8. Those shoes are adorable--I need to check them out!
    I love both of gigi's outfits!

  9. Love those shoes, Pam. And I agree that Ulta's rewards are really terrific - I just got a great gel eyeliner.

  10. Love the scarf. I wear so much red, black and white. That's so versatile. And thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting the other day! Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com. ( I also love the free birthday gift at Sephora :) )

  11. Love the shoes! My Ross usually looks like it's been hit by a bomb, but if I sift through the chaos I find terrific deals. Gigi's jackets are very chic, too. I think I'll take a look at Coldwater Creek ;-)

  12. Great post!! I also shop at Ulta for that kind of stuff for the same reasons. Gigi looks great in her jackets, too. As far as your "feeling 40" tip? I wholeheartedly agree- variety rules. I just hit a new thrift store yesterday, and although I probably won't go back, I'm glad I went, just to see something different. Have a wonderful week!!

  13. Just dropped by to see how you're doing and...I love your new site design!! Really great. I'm always inspired by over50feeling40. Thanks!
