Obsessed with Purple
October 10, 2010 § 3 Comments
Lately, I’ve been obsessed with purple. I’d been on the hunt for almost a year for the perfect purple bedspread that wouldn’t cost me an arm and a leg. And it had to be just the right shade–I wanted a deep, dark purple that would give my bedroom a hint of sophistication and I couldn’t seem to find what I wanted until I went to Ikea this year and laid my eyes on the Karit bedspread for $49.99! Of course, as shown below, I had to test out the blanket in the store. I wanted to make sure the fabric
would be comfortable because I REALLY enjoy my sleep, especially in the winter. After a quick trial in the store and a few odd looks from store associates, I put the blanket and matching pillow cases in my blue ikea reusable bag and headed for the door. I found what I wanted, now I had to get out of there before I got out of control! The bedspread looked great on my bed and Haley, my cat, certainly approved!
A few days later I headed to the CVS around the corner from me, where I believe I should have stock because half of my income goes there for some reason, I stumbled across a brand of nail polish I had never noticed before: Confetti. I saw their moonstruck shade and decided that at $1.99 it was a steal and I had to check it out! Usually the cheap stuff is watery and you have to put on about 5 coats for it to look like salon-quality but Confetti Moonstruck went on smoothly and had a nice, glossy finish before I even added a topcoat! Since this trip, I’ve purchased a few other colors and have been presently surprised. I def recommend checking out this brand–they have all the hot colors for the season!
