Maybe you already know this, but not only is TJ Maxx a great place to find clothes, shoes, and jewelry, they also occasionally have nail polish. Admittedly, there isn’t usually a lot to choose from, but today I found these cute two-packs with attached cosmetic bags.
The colors in this first set are Alpine Snow and Sweet Heart.
And these are Big Apple Red and Black Onyx.They were each $7.99, which is still less per bottle than I can find just about anywhere, including a local beauty supply shop with big discounts. The colors are all very basic, but I didn’t own any of them already.
Have you shopped for beauty items at TJ Maxx before?
I have another pretty polish to share today. This is A England Briar Rose that I bought from Color4Nails.com.
I don’t have a lot of rose/pink colors in my collection, but there was something about this color that I was drawn to. If a nail polish color can be described as dreamy, this is it.
This is my family yesterday after we toured the new Gilbert Arizona Temple for the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, also known as the LDS church, or the Mormons. Once a new temple is built there is a public open house for a little while before the temple is dedicated where anyone who would like to can go through and see what the building is like. We went with my brother in law, who was visiting us after recently returning home from a mission in Thailand, and some friends.
The temple is such a beautiful, peaceful place. There are currently 141 operating temples all over the world, 13 that are under construction right now, and 16 more that will be built soon.

My hair was kind of extra big today and both my kids asked me what the deal was.
Honestly, I just don’t know because I didn’t do anything differently. Some people have a lot of bad hair days. I have a lot of BIG hair days.
I’ve had these shoes for a long time now and they never seem to get worn. The heel is pretty high and it makes the pitch hard to manage for very long, which is strange, because just looking at them they wouldn’t seem that way at all.
I’m wearing a new to me nail color I picked up. It’s OPI’s My Private Jet. It has holographic sparkles that I’m having a tough time photographing.
I’m linked up for Visible Monday #122 on Not Dead Yet Style.
Nine West Sweetness
I’ve had these black patent Mary Jane shoes in my cart at NineWest.com for a while and kept putting off buying them because, well, do I really need another pair of black high heeled pumps?
And do I really need more shoes with straps that cut me off at the ankle?
I kept telling myself yes because every time I try to wear pumps with tights my feet end up slipping out of my shoes. I’ve tried several types of ‘heel grips’ and nothing is working.
It’s so annoying! How did we all use to wear pantyhose all the time?
And lastly, aren’t they a little too sweet and girly for a woman in her forties?
I don’t know, but I no longer have to ask myself those questions because I waited too long and now they’re sold out in my size.
What’s the last thing you let get away? Do you still regret it?
