Recent purchases:

Finally found an iPhone cover that I love – cupcakes, good quality, lots of pink – what’s not to love? The case is made by HAPPYMORI, and I got mine on eBay.

Received my L’Occitane order – they had a special email offer: spend $35 and get free shipping PLUS a “Best of L’Occitane” set. I purchased the Rose perfume and lotion (bottom left) the rest are all freebies – super generous, huh?

I’m on a major accessories kick at the moment – along with the JoeFRESH necklace I blogged about last week, I also picked up this mint green J Crew necklace. It’s the perfect layering necklace for spring.

Some more sparklies – bought this Shamballa-type crystal ball bracelet and purple evil-eye bracelet yesterday. While I was attracted by their appearance, they each have symbolic meanings which I’d like to research further.

Quick pic from our grocery run – we’ll be taking the kids on their first trip to Asia soon, so we’ve been stocking up on medication – hopefully we won’t need any of it 🙂

Have you purchased anything special this week?

    That's a really cute case! 🙂 May I ask which eBay seller you bought from? There are so many selling Happymori cases and I don't know which ones are reliable. Thanks!

      Sure thing – I know what you mean – some of the sellers have fake cases! My seller was anoah24 – I highly recommend them – great communication, super-friendly and even sent a free home button sticker!

      I love the iphone cases you posted on your blog – SO cute! I'd been searching for iPhone cases on eBay for so long – either for cupcakes or polka dots.

    how exciting you're going to Asia! What lucky kids to have that kind of experience at such a young age. I LOVE that JoFresh necklace, especially paired with the J.Crew necklace, perfect for Spring. That iphone case really covers a lot of your phone, I like that. Mine just covers basically the back and that's it.

      I'm super-excited too – I used to go every year – but stopped when I was pregnant and haven't been back since! Time really flies….can't wait to see how the kids like it.

    Lovely as usual 🙂 The jewelry is of course my favorite! I'm with Andi on the necklaces, they are perfect for Spring.

      Thanks Noelle – Spring always makes me feel like shopping (and summer…and fall…I guess my wallet is only safe in winter when it's too COLD to try anything on…oh wait, there's online shopping then!)

      They have some very luxe products – I can't wait to try the Almond Milk samples – have read so many good things about them.
