Virtual Shopping Buddy

We live in the age of technology. And I live in the age of early nights. Aubrey is in bed by 8 so it doesn’t give me too many opportunities to take a night out for shopping with girlfriends. And in 2 weeks I depart with my best bargain shopper friend, MJ. And even though we can’t get a lot of time out shopping to prepare for BlogHer, we each have one thing – cell phones!!

Whenever we find ourselves out and about, shopping, we send pictures to each other with items. Last night I went to Target after Aubrey went to sleep with a lost of things to buy for the house – and BlogHer. I needed to shop for a notebook since MJ and I decided we are going techie – and old school – to take notes for everything. And what’s a trip to Target without checking out the clothes?? Here are some of the photos I sent MJ to be my Virtual Shopping Buddy!!


I also HAD to buy some colored pens!!


That owl is a LONG twisty eraser!!


That bottom photo was to show her all the “blingy” items at Target!

And then tonight she hit up TJ Maxx and the Target near her. I got some photos and I asked her to check on a Deux Lux bag. I love hers and wanted one! Sadly there was only one option and I didn’t like. So I decided to make a quick trip to my TJ Maxx with Aubrey before her bed time to make a return AND check out some things. Oh wow did I score!!


Here are some pics. And my lovely assistant Aubrey!


I LOVE me some patterns. But you’ll have to wait till BlogHer to see what I got! Follow me on Instagram – @melissa_dell to see my #OOTD (outfits of the day)

Oh and I scored 2 Deux Lux bags!! (and so did MJ! Well – one for her)
