I've Had a Materialistic Girl Week -- and I Deserve it!

I have been working 50-hr weeks for the past month.  I am not complaining--I am super busy and time goes by fast.  But I have no time during the week to do anything other than work.

So when I checked my email at 5:00 a.m. on Cyber Monday, I could not resist the 50% off + free shipping from my favorite clothing site and I clicked it just to see what was available (even though I just told you all that I was not going to buy any more clothing).  Sometimes I lie :)

Can you believe I found quite a  few items that I felt  would work great in my current wardrobe? I know you are probably shocked,but I did indeed find all of these items:
Lots of layering pieces and one necklace. 

I also decided early in the week  to get my nails done as DH wanted to give that to me for an early birthday gift.  It's been two years since I removed my acrylic nails and I am getting tired of short ugly I decided to have them put back on.

Here they are against my current machine-quilting project--kind of a two for one pic :).
It's a pain to go every 2 weeks to have them done, but I really feel so much better with longer nails. 

The quilt is one I pieced a few years ago and was going to hand quilt.  I started to hand quilt it two months ago, but never returned to it.  I finally decided to just use the machine for some simple straight line quilting.  I don't seem to have the ambition to spend months hand quilting any more.  I guess it's better just to get them done on the machine so I can use them. I hope to get it finished this weekend.

I can't believe tomorrow is Friday already.  I do have to work a bit on Saturday, but after that I intend to go home and stay for the rest of the weekend.  Maybe I can find a place to hang that wreath I made on Thanksgiving day.


  1. I have been going through a materialistic phase lately.

    Your nails are hot :)

  2. Looks like you got some nice pieces hope you have a relaxing weekend

  3. Your nails look beautiful, Zoey! I also like your new clothes. Do you have a favorite online retailer? Bet you'll be quilting soon; I'm sure you've got the garden put to bed.
    Merry Christmas! Beth

  4. Good for you- you deserve it! Your work hard and you should have a few pleasues. Who do you order from online? I love a lot of the online stores. Your nails look great! xo Diana

  5. I'd say that after working 50 hours a week for the past month you deserve new clothes and nails! Enjoy!

  6. I miss my fancy nails. But it's just not practical for me being 12 miles from a salon. Not to mention the money.
    Yours look so good and makes me wish for them again!

    Glad you took some time for yourself, I know it's not been easy on you lately.

  7. Good for you!!!!! I like the colors in your quilt! I hope you get some down time this weekend!

  8. Thanks for sharing your buys. I would say that all of these pieces are very practical and can be used in so many ways.....and the necklace is just a little added bauble.
    Your nails are so pretty.
    Have a nice weekend doing what you love most.

  9. Those are some great deals my friend!

  10. Nice pieces for your wardrobe!
    I've never had a professional manicure. Your nails sure look great.
    Wow, you are working long hours, but glad they are going by quickly.
    Your quilt is pretty too!

  11. Zoey: Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I think you did a great job spiffing up your wardrobe!! After all, your nails need a good "backdrop".

    I don't quilt but envy those who do. I'm looking forward to seeing more of yours and checking out your recipes too.
