The $25 Extravaganza


I know you are all curious to know what last weeks gift card purchase entailed. I did have to shell out a few dollars of my own, but not much.
Item #1 - Candy Corn Kisses. Have you ever heard of such a thing?? Me neither. The verdict- they are ok, but next time I'll save myself the extra money and calories and just go with the original candy corns.
Item #2 - Comfortable shoes to get me through the upcoming Sundays. Let me tell you, finding anything non-heeled or strappy is tough. Found these little gems in the girls section. When I pulled them out Jeremy said "Man those look huge." They are a little girls size 5, not really huge.
Item #3 - Footies to keep my shoes from stinking. Sad part is this was supposed to have 2 pairs. I only got one. I hope someone is keeping their shoes nice and fresh with my stolen pair.
Item #4 - Mascara. I just needed a new bottle. The bottle claimed to hold magic curling power... a tale that I foolishly bought into. My lashes are no more curly than last week, but they have color so it can't be a total loss.

I'm certainly with you on the comfortable shoes! I've never eaten those candy corn kisses although they always seem to appear around Halloween.
Cheers

p.s.

You'll be glad to know that I now have a fully functioning blogroll from my google feedreader which has also decided to co-operate although I can't figure it out for the Wordpress one yet.]

I love those shoes they are adorable! If you got the nylons at walmart it doesn't surprise me that a pair is missing that happened to me last week with teething tablets! Apparently people like taking one of your products!

Take the footsie things back. They'll replace them.

Are you saying you got ALL that stuff for $25? Nice.

Let me know if the shoes are comfy. I've got plans to wear my comfy flip flops, but think once November hits they might not cut it. BRRRR!!

Those shoes are so cute! I wish I could wear a girls size 5! My Hubby and I are almost the same height... so heels are kinda out of the question unless I want to be taller than him. And I don't :)
I've never tried the candy corn kisses... and now, thanks to your review, I'll probably save my money :)

I've never even SEEN candy corn kisses, or you know I would have bought them in a heartbeat.
I still might.
I mean, no offense, it's just that the package says candy corn. There's no point in trying to resist.
Unless it says honey candy corn. Then there's no point in purchasing them at all.

How can you fit a size 5 little girls shoe? That's just crazy. Love all the items that you got. The Candy Corn Kisses look interesting. Do they taste like chocolate or just candy corn?? I agree with Debie, take those footies back and get your 2nd pair!

Brenda said...

I love the shoes! Can't say that the candy corn kisses sound good to me, they sound disgusting - sorry! I would take back the footies! As for the mascara...I need some new stuff myself and I can't seem to find any I like!

A size 5 shoe? I can't even grasp how small that is (I don't have kids and I don't normally look in that section). Very cute choice though.

Those mascara things always lie. I swear it's a conspiracy.

I totally envy people with small feet. Shoes always look so much cuter in a smaller size. Not a big candy corn fan, but I'm intrigued by all of the different varieties of Hersheys kisses out there.

Your shoes looked super cute on Sunday! A size 5? Wow! Payless Shoes has the footies 2 for $5!!

The Donald said...

That is a total woman's shopping trip...none of that stuff looks appealing to me. Well, I like the comfortable shoes. I am all about comfort at church.

Cute shoes.

Cute things Heather. And I am enjoying those footies. Thanks ;)

Those shoes are cute, and by the way, Hannah has the same pair!! You guys can be twinners! Should I buy her a yellow dress too??? :)

You got some good stuff with your gift card. Although I'm not sure about those candy corn kisses..

Candy corn kisses? Hmm, I just might have to pick some of those up. Just so I can say I've tried them. Cute shoes too!
