I hope everyone enjoys today’s Things I Love Thursday! This one has a bit of outdoorsy stuff. It will not fit everyone’s lifestyle, but these are the things “I” love.
Ride Linda Gloves: The snowboarding season is quickly approaching and I decided to take advantage of the deals going on now for winter gear. These gloves ended up costing me only $4.61! I actually had three REI gift cards that I received for free and the gloves were on sale with an additional 20% off the sale price. I love the heart shape they created on these gloves and I also love the awesome deal I got on them.
Title Nine Ruckus Tunic Sweater: I received a catalogue by mail recently from a store called Title Nine. I had never heard of them before and after looking through the catalogue, I really liked their clothes. They sell clothing that is best suited for outdoor activities such as sports. You could easily wear their clothing casually. I really liked this tunic! It looks like it would be perfect for the winter.
Po Campo Armitage Satchel: Last weekend, we stopped by REI and while I was browsing, I came across this purse by Po Campo. I loved the color and the size of it. I think it would be perfect as a weekend purse or on easy going days. Definitely on my wishlist!
Cheeky Organic Eye Primer: I have been looking for a natural eye primer. I do not wear eye shadow often, but when I do I typically do not use a primer mainly because I am afraid of putting them on my eye lids, concerned about all of the chemicals. I had discovered this organic eye primer by Cheeky Cosmetics and plan to order it soon to test out.

Today George and I went to the Great Mall to do a bit of outlet shopping. It has been windy (16+ mph) so it was nice to keep things indoors today. :]
I ended up picking up a blazer and blouse at Calvin Klein for work. I really love Calvin Klein clothes. They fit me so well without needing to be tailored! We did not find much during this visit which is kinda sad seeing Milpitas is quite a drive away from San Francisco (my Calvin Klein stuff was it). Guess not spending too much money is a good thing though. The Great Mall has not been my favorite place to shop and we probably will not be visiting again anytime soon. I prefer a lot of smaller outlet places such as Vacaville and Gilroy because they have more stores I like such as J.Crew!
Aside from the Great Mall, earlier in the morning we also stopped by REI which is one of our FAVORITE places to go for outdoor gear. We had over $200 worth of gift cards to put to use. They have a great winter clearance sale going on and George finally found a snow jacket that I spotted for him — he has been in search of one he likes for a few months now. We also picked up snow boots for Widget and I got a laptop bag for my Cintiq so that I can safely carry it to work. Sadly the snow boots do not fit Widget right and my bag is missing the strap (did not noticed until we got home)! Guess we will be going back to REI tomorrow. If you are looking for laptop bags seriously make sure the strap is attached! I had visited a Frys Electronics on Friday and most bags were missing straps — is it a new fad to steal them?! I should had been better about checking the bag I bought at REI.
