So I went to the mall today and I bought a lot of interesting things that I wouldn't normally get. First I bought Sims 2 seasons and Show your bones by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Ok, that isn't abnormal or anything it's just I'm so happy I got these!!!!!!!! I'm addicted the sims and I love the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I've been wanting that album for almost a year now. I saw Happy Hollow by Cursive, M83, and Mew too, but I didn't get them because I don't know if Happy Hollow is any good and I didn't want the M83 & Mew albums that were there. Anyway, I also bought a belt and a purse from pacsun, a cute shirt from A&E, and some lotions from bath & body works. Now all that I just listed was unusual for me, especially the lotions.
I bought the bag and the belt because I needed a new one of both. Both of them are black and have designs on them. I really love my new bag, it's more me than my old one. My gray one has tassels on it and that's just to girly and impractical. I was thinking about getting a wallet, but I decided against it. I'm kind of stingy with my money. I hate to part with it.
I went to A&E because it's less preppy and more laid back than aeropostale. What was really weird was in the mall aeropostale & A&E were right across from one another. Are they apart of the same time or is it just some good old fashion marketing competition? I only bought one shirt because I couldn't find anything else I liked (they barely had any mediums in the shirts I wanted) and I was so uncomfortable there. I felt nervous, out of place, and completely out of my element. I went to pacsun after that and I felt so much more comfortable there. It was like a "whoo, I can finally relax." I liked that experience. I know where I belong now.
Next I went to bath and body works. This was the most shocking of all because I'm not girly and I don't like scented lotions or sprays. But I've always wanted to buy lotion from here because everyone I know who buys this stuff smells so good. I love going in here because I'm really indecisive and it's just funny to watch my selecting process. I smelled all the lotions I was interested in and all of the sprays too. I even made my dad (I went to the mall with him. I like spending time with him) to put on one of the lotions because I had already put one on. I ended choosing the japanese blossom lotion. I'm really unsure about this one because I was afraid that because it has flowers in it that it would smell to perfumy. Now I think it does. I've been putting it on and I'm still trying to decide if I like it. I got it becuase it reminds me of my mom. I think it is a little too perfumy. If I finally decide that I don't like it I'll just give it to mom.
What I forgot to mention was that I bought a book today too. I bought Perfume: Story of a murderer. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I know that I'm going to love the book. I'm so glad they had it. I saw a lot of books that turned into movies there too, like Little Children and the Painted Veil. I also saw this journal in the book store and its cover was oil painted and hand painted. The pages felt so good too. I wanted to get it so bad but writing in journals don't work for me. It's more romantic, but I can't write as fast as i think. I can type as fast though ;).
I don't know what happended today. I turned into a total girl today. I don't know if my inner girl is coming out or if I'm just growing up. I like to think it's the latter. All in all it was a pretty good day. Probably the best shopping day in a long time.
