Thursday Thoughts

I'm linking up with Jen from Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for Thursday Thoughts.

It is still very cold and snowy and very wintry here, and I'm soooo sick of it. Where is Spring?!? I'm in need of warmer weather!!!! So, in hopes of Spring I have a Spring Giveaway Contest going on now, check it out here. Enter today!

I don't know why I didn't know about this sooner, but ModCloth offers Stylish Surprises a few times a year, where you can order apparel, shoes, or accessories for a real steal of a price. The only catch is you have no idea what you'll get (hence the name) and can't make requests. You are only able to order by size, which can be tricky considering how different sizes run based on the brand. 

ModCloth is not usually a website I shop from, but they have a great selection of cute and quirky retro style pieces. This go round Stylish Surprise Apparel was $10 for 1 piece, Stylish Surprise Shoes were $10 for 1 pair, and Stylish Surprise Accessories were $5 for 1 item. By the time I found out about the deal the accessories were sold out, but I was able to snag 1 apparel in my size and 2 pairs of shoes. And my package should be arriving tomorrow already! Yay!!!  

I'm excited and nervous and scared to see what I will get. When I received the shipping notification it said the box size was 24x16x8 in. and weight was 6.8lbs. Whatever could it be??? I'm hoping to at least get 1 item I like and that fits right. But the surprise factor made it something I couldn't pass up. I'll review what I get whether I love it or not, so be watching for that, if you're interested. Just to warn everyone I have the worst luck with these type of grab bag deals, so my expectations are really low of what I may receive.

And when is the Popsugar Must Have Limited Edition Resort box going to ship?!? I can't wait to see what is in it. I'm going to try to go spoiler free for this box, but we'll see how long it takes for me to receive mine. I might not be able to wait much longer. Please, please, please.....ship soon!

I really need to get myself on a budget....and fast! This is me...I hear about a deal and buy it immediately without any hesitation and then regret it, because I don't really need it. I just love knowing that I always have a package coming. But, seriously, this has got to stop already. I NEED to save money.

What are you thinking about?


  1. Stopping by from the link-up! I finally seen the Stylish Surprise in time BUT their website was being all wonky & annoying so I took it as a sign to not spend any money. Next time...though!! Can't wait to see what you get!

  2. I can't wait until it warms up too. My boys and I want to get out and about.

  3. Oh I need to look at modcloth. That sounds like a fun box but I agree on sizing. Luckily my sister is a little smaller then me so if something is just a little snug or doesn't look right she can usually wear it. It also helps that she's 20yrs younger then me so if its too young she can pull it off easier. LOL
