Sweater: Target
Sequin tank: JCrew
Pants: Kohl's
Pumps:Nine West

First of all, here's my purple picture post of the day. (Love alliteration!) For some reason, in every one of the pics in this outfit, I'm looking down. I don't know why. The tank underneath is sequined, but you can't really tell in the picture. (And don't you just love how the gray in my hair matches the argyles on the sweater? LOL)

So, I love surprises.  Well, sometimes. I love GOOD surprises! I love FUN surprises! Other kinds of surprises? Not so much.

Yesterday, Leah brings in the mail and there is a package from Target. She said, What'd you get from Target? I was like, Uh, nothing. I haven't ordered anything.

I opened it up and had a great surprise! It was this freebie pack thing that I'd ordered weeks and weeks and weeks ago that I had forgotten about.  It was something I found out about thru a link from some blog or another. I wish I could remember which one it was.  AND, even better, it was pink and purple, which is GREAT for this month!! It was like they just knew!

LOOK how cute!!

And it was full of samples!! I love getting goodies like this.  Here's what all was in it:
I have all sorts of new things to try. I'm so excited! 
Have you gotten any good surprises lately? Tell us about it!

Or have you tried anything new? Tell us about that, too!
