We had a paleo party on Friday! It was kinda for Nathan’s birthday, but it was so awesome, I feel like we should have it pretty much every couple of weeks. It was basically a meat fest. Our tummies were all happy. Those are the important things in life.
Brad and I brought PaleOMG goodies. We made her bacon meatballs with mango honey mustard dipping sauce. And her sweet potato brownies that I somehow forgot to take a picture of… Again. Probably because they don’t ever last long enough for a picture to be taken.
The next day I was in a really good mood. We went to crossfit and then lazed around at the pool with some fellow crossfitters. I was annoyed at the workout for being a non-team workout (generally on Saturdays we do a team workout which is always super fun). But I ended up PRing my jerk! 190! I got it and went “Oh my gosh! YAY.”
But yeah, we ended up going to the pool after that instead of the lake which is kindof silly…
Good times. Very good times.
Time to talk about Little Black Bag!
So it’s this website where you go on there and you can choose and item to purchase and open a “bag”. Items include TONS of accessories like shoes, bags, scarves, jewelry, makeup, perfume, and even home decor. You can choose to get the single item for a set price or you can choose to “bundle” and for $10 more, you get some bonus items. Then you have 7 days to trade with other members and get items you actually want. It’s extremely addicting, so be warned. Once you like what you have you can either ship your bag or you can wait until it automatically closes when the 7 days are up. You can also pay to keep items in a warehouse to trade at a later time… which confuses me. I prefer just trading then and there. And I highly recommend doing a bundle because it’s fun! I got my bag in the mail yesterday and this is what was in it:
I opened with this purse. I have REALLY been wanting a minty green colored purse. This one is the perfect size for me and I love all the extra pockets inside. Amazing. I couldn’t find a purse like this in a store for that price. I only paid $49.
Here are all four items that I ended up with after trading:
I love this purse even more after having it in person!!! SO pretty!
I traded for this phone case because i just got the iPhone 5 and only have on case. So now I have a backup. It’s kindof cheap and crappy but whatever. I actually found it online and it retails for about $6. It was listed on LBB at $25 value. HA. Silly. There are lots of things on there that are worth more or less than it says they are. While I was trading some Betsey Johnson bags were uploaded and they sold out in about 20 seconds. I actually tried pretty hard to trade for one, but no luck. It’s ok, though. I love my new bag.
This perfume was free for anyone who opened a bag during a certain time period. I originally got plain vanilla but I traded for this. I don’t really like super sugary smelling perfumes and blackberry sounded very fresh.
There are little bits of cork floating around in it too. Lol, ohwell.
I am wearing the Lavanilla perfume right now. It was a teeny tiny sample, but I like it pretty well. I think I’d like to smell the other flavors–I bet the vanilla grapefruit smells really awesome.
Here is my link if you want to try Little Black Bag— http://lbb.ag/a35H It’s really fun, I promise! And if you stalk it, you can find a pretty good deal 🙂
Confession: I purchased and ate this entire thing of oreos…. and it was worth it.
