OOTD – The Eyes Have It

Hello friends and happy Saturday, “Shop Small Business Saturday” which is a wonderful event to promote and support local businesses during the holiday season. Before shopping locally in Middletown I had to pick up my new glasses from Halpern Eye Care and was excited to get them. When I went in for my annual appointment I spent well over an hour trying on different frames to find just the right ones and I think this time I did! I chose a¬†sunglasses¬†frame by the Guess brand and they fit my face just as I wanted them too. It didn’t hurt that the case is a leopard print although it’s large and bulky.

The winter weather is knocking on the back door so I had to break out the bin of sweaters, this one belonged to my sister and is one of my favorites. I love these fingerless gloves which were purchased several years ago from Kmart. Jeans and purse were thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill), scarf purchased from “The Bag Lady” Home Purse Party, boots are closet staples, earrings from Rugged Wearhouse and XOXO Sunnies were won in a Penny Chic contest.

Hello friends and happy Saturday. Yesterday I left work early because I got really ill after eating a sample of pasta salad from Primo Hoagies. My head was spinning so badly that I didn’t think I would make it home. I did however, with a lot of prayer and by keeping my head steady and firmly pressed against the head rest. Because I rarely if ever get sick I always think the worst, this time a brain tumor or aneurysm came to mind – I know! I feel better but still have a dull headache which doesn’t seem to want to go away even with several Alleve capsules.

This morning I had my annual eye appointment and chose to have the full comprehensive Optomap and refraction exam to rule out any constricted blood vessels or major changes to my vision. Everything was normal and although I still have to wear glasses my vision got better, not worse. I took over 30 minutes, tried on more than 12 pairs looking for just the right frame to ensure I would wear the glasses as prescribed.

After leaving Halpern Eye Care I drove to Family Dollar for cleaning and beauty supplies. I got the normal items, PineSol, Gain detergent, cotton balls, tooth brushes and tooth paste but what caught my eye were the 3 displays perched high above the other beauty supplies – Sally Hansen, Kiss and Fingr’s nail decals. The Kiss and Fingr’s nail decals were clearly marked $3., but there wasn’t a price listed on the Sally Hansen products. Having bought Salon effects from both Walmart and Walgreens they are normally priced $8.50, so thinking they were at least that price I only put one box in my basket. At the register they rang up $5.00 which is a fantastic price, I will now search for coupons for my next purchase at Family Dollar.
