I'm a stalker...

...I totally admit it.

Thank goodness I only stalk products that I need  want. You see, I learned early on (the hard way) that if you find something you like, BUY it and even better buy THREE if you can. Hence my favorite quote...you are probably sick of it but I seriously live by it!


Here are my latest stalking suspects:

MAC Altered Beige Lipstick (sold out)



10 years ago (yes, I know that makes me feel old) one of my girlfriends worked at the MAC counter at Nordstrom in Vegas. One night she used a new lip color called Expensivo, a gorgeous metallic beige, on me. I didn't think anything of it at the time but bought a tube anyway since she "loaned" me some lashes. After that night I realized that I pretty much loved the color and bought another tube. So when I started to realize I was going through it pretty quickly, I went to get more and guess what? It was sold out - everywhere (well you can get it on Ebay for $50). Seriously a bummer...I still have a tiny bit left and only wear it for special occasions - aka my wedding.

So when I was at Nordstrom getting my watch sized a couple weekends ago, I saw a color called Altered Beige and it was so similar, I knew I had to have it. Of course, they were sold out so I made the lovely lady at the MAC Counter find two of them somewhere in her computer to mail to me. She did and in a few days they were at my doorstep. Now, normal people would have stopped there. Not me!

I then called around to every single Southern California Nordstrom I could find and in the end I think I found the last two available. I immediately swooped them up and now have 4 in my possession.

Crazy, right? I think not, I learned my lesson the first time. Four tubes should last me a few years until a new shade comes out. :)

Flower Necklace


I have loved this necklace from J. Crew for a while. I am huge fan of BIG statement necklaces (obviously, I make them myself) and when I first saw knockoffs on Groopdealz, I sort of thought about getting one. But I didn't. Then I started to see a couple blog posts here and there with some white ones - J Crew is my Fave Store and A Spoonful of Style - and then I realized that I NEEDED one. So, being the stalker I am, I watched Groopdealz every day to see if they would come back. To my delight, they did and you bet I bought not one, not two but THREE while I was walking our dogs! If that's not crazy, I don't know what is!   I mean they were just $15 so why not buy three at that price??


I got them this week and am already obsessed. Be prepared to see them featured a lot!

eBay 

Recently I discovered that I am also a stalker when it comes to selling things on eBay. While my Lulu crops were up for auction on eBay last week, I seriously watched/refreshed the listing multiple times per hour  day. And when the auction ended the other night, you bet I had that baby up watching the minutes and seconds! They sold for $85...three dollars less than what I bought them for! Good thing I have another pair to sell...green ones this time! More stalking for me!

Are you a stalker? What items do you just have to have??

  2. Many years ago I was using this eye liner and I loved it so much I would hoard them. Then I found out that the brand was discontinuing them, so literally went into every store I could find to buy up all the stock the had... hahaha. :)

  4. I love the flower necklaces. I didn't purchase because I didn't know what to wear it with. You'll have to post your outfits that you wear with the necklace!

  8. I had a favorite candle (I can still remember the way it smelled) and of course it is no longer available and I'm so bummed! I should have gotten 5 or so. I've heard of make-up companies that can replicate your shade for you.

  9. You have me so obsessed with the flower necklaces now! I want a hundred of them (maybe three). :) And OMG I have been DYING to find that lipstick! I'm so jealous that you were able to snag it (and three of them, nonetheless)! I've got to start calling up some local Nordies'!
