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!

    Hi there, is there any chance you’d be willing to sell your ikea karit bedspread? I’m trying to track one down desperately? Thanks so much, Sally 🙂

    Hi Sally! Thanks for checking out the blog! I wish I could sell it to you but since my cat, Haley, loves scratching it so much I don’t think you would want it! Good luck in your search 🙂 jen@afreshcoat
