Spring Cleaning Weekend

**First things first - if you have my URL saved in your browser as peridotkutie.blogspot.com please note it has changed to greenfashionistablog.com. Yes, I have finally purchased a domain, and it gets redirected to my old URL. Still trying to figure out how to not just be re-directed, but for my domain to be the main URL**

Oh Monday we meet again, but I'm not complaining as much as usual because I actually feel refreshed and ready to take on the week. It was unseasonably cool this weekend which meant relaxing outdoors with good friends and some good ol' fashioned spring cleaning with all the windows open.


I started off my Friday with 25% off my iced skinny vanilla latte with a reward on my app, while sifting through some of the business cards I picked up at last week's blogger meet and sweet.


Lunch time called for a stop at Trader Joe's to restock on cookie butter and cheap wine. I also picked up a bundle of daffodils for only $1.49... TJ's you win again! 


Later, I met up with some friends I hadn't seen in a while for some happy hour outside. Good fattening food, drinks, and laughs are always good for the soul. Afterwards, we made our way over to World of Beer for one last drink where I tried their beer mimosa which was delish!


Saturday made way for a beautiful bike ride before a Target run and heading over to a friend's to continue our Harry Potter marathon in their home theater.


After Sarah mentioned the limited edition birthday frappuccino, I knew I had to pick it up when I was at the Target Starbucks, and it was delish! Today, is the last day so if you haven't tried one yet go get one! And don't be afraid to ask for them to make it with skim milk to help lessen the calorie bomb!



The girls enjoyed lots of some wine while the guys drank their manly beers, and we munched on dips and grilled out before saying goodbye to the beautiful sunshine and hello to the dark theater for some HP time.


Sunday called for some spring cleaning and a few new beauty items.

*My daffodils from TJ's started blooming*


I feel like none of the primers I've been using work. They either leave my face in a total oil slick still or cause me to break out even worse than I already am... really not cool. So, I decided to try out a cheaper primer when I saw e.l.f.'s poreless primer at Target for only $6. If it doesn't work, at least it's not as much as the $30-$40 primers I've tried that haven't worked. 

I also picked up Essie's new Flowerista from their spring 2015 collection, and it's just as beautiful in person as it is online. Definitely a must buy!

  2. Yay for changing your URL! I still haven't bought my own domain. I probably should get on that... maybe... LOL! Umm how did I not know Starbucks had a specialty frappuccino?!? I think I'm going to have to miss it since I can't get to a Starbucks unless I go after work... and then I'll never get any sleep. Unfortunately the whole arsenic thing ruined TJ wine for me. Even if it's not harmful I still can't bring myself to drink it any more! Love that Essie color! Hope you have an awesome Monday girl!

  6. Woohoo for a new URL! I was trying to look for your blog this morning and couldn't find it, now I know why!

    I really want to try that Frappuccino, but I"m scared I'll experience death by sugar. Is it worth it?

  15. I need to hit all of the spots that you frequent! The food and drinks always look sooooo good!!! Let me know how that primer works out. I'm getting bored with my current ones and I feel like nothings really working. Makeup Forever has a new line of primers and I've heard great things. You can get a deluxe sample if you use the code MUFESKIN with any Sephora online purchase. :)

  16. Woohoo on your own domain!! I was totally gonna get those daffodils, but wasn't sure how they'd turn out, after seeing yours I may need to stop by and grab a bunch! I tried the frap and should have definitely added some coffee in there, just too sweet for me. Yay for HP marathons!

  20. I'm so jealous of your cookie butter! I bought some for my son to try recently and I'm so tempted to eat it (I'm gluten intolerant)! They need to make a g-free version!!! ; )
