This morning I chugged my coffee and caught an earlier bus to arrive at the downtown Minneapolis Macy’s right when their doors opened. Why do you ask? They are having a 1-day sale (which extends to tomorrow morning, so technically a 1 and 1/2 day sale) with lots of great deals. I saw a Clinique makeup bag set for $39.50 in the weekly ad I just had to have.
So there I was, waltzing through Macy’s at 8 a.m. on a mission. Usually when I go this Macy’s I’m on my lunch break, so I’m wandering around without a purpose. If you haven’t been to this Macy’s, you need to go. There are so many floors (about 10?) and they’re all so brightly lit and the staff members are very helpful. The eighth floor has a Holiday theme now that anyone can go tour. I might take my parents there this weekend. If I do, I’ll definitely share Christmas explosion photos with you all.
Before I got sidetracked I was trying to tell you this…I ended up buying myself the makeup set you see here. Merry Christmas to me (early)! I usually wear crappy makeup when my Mary Kay stuff runs out, so I thought it was about time for me to upgrade being I’m a 23-year-old working girl and all. I think it was a pretty great deal for nail polish, eye shadow, eye liner, mascara and lip gloss. The best part? The hot pink and purple makeup bag! I love really bright things so this bag is right up my alley.
I’m thinking the darker eye shadow will make my eyes pop. Bam. Sometime I feel like my eyes are hidden behind my brown glasses and dark eyebrows. Maybe I’ll give myself a mini-makeover some night this week. Maybe you won’t even recognize me! Maybe the dark cranberry lip gloss will make me look sophisticated. Like a woman who leisurely sips red wine, chats politics and throws her head back when she laughs. (I don’t know if lipstick can change your persona, but here’s to hoping!)
I gotta know: Do people buy themselves Christmas gifts? Am I really weird for doing this?
