Weekend Shopping - Work Essentials

Image
I didn't do any shopping in local stores.  I needed some work clothing/accessory items so I ordered them at www.jcpenney.com

Worthington brand pants are my favorite for work.  My company recently switched to uniforms so my motivation to shop for clothing has disappeared.  I did need some black pants to go with my uniform blouse.  I found these pants on clearance for around $12 each so I bought five pair so I only have to do laundry at the end of the week.




I wanted to find some simple earrings that I can wear with my uniform, that's classic and simple and that I don't have to take out of me ears to shower.  I found these little hoops.  They are the perfect size.  They are stainless steel so they won't turn.  they are dainty and cute.
My black belt was showing some wear and tear so I picked up another.  It's a simple leather belt.
This is the other pair of earrings.  They turned out to be huge; much larger than I was looking for.  I'll keep them but I won't u…

Around Town - Lake Silver

Image
Lake Silver in is the down town area of Winter Haven.  It's where the monthly ski show is held.  It's within walking distance of the police station and the hospital.  The Chain of Lakes Trail runs along one side.  It's a great area to walk.

Weekend Shopping

This shopping trip was mainly about repurchasing stuff I'm either out of or almost out of.

I've been using the ROC brand skincare for years and I love it.  I was going to just replace the serum that I'm running out of.  ROC was on sale last weekend so I ended up getting the ROC Retinol Correction MAX duo.  I haven't used this kit before but so far I like it.  You really can't go wrong with ROC products.
Revlon Colorsilk hair color - I use three or four brands of hair color.  I just buy what's on sale when I need more.  I actually think it's a great strategy because I get slight variations in my hair color and it looks very natural as a result. 
This is my second time purchasing the Neutrogena face soap.  It's expensive enough that I said I wouldn't repurchase it.  It's still on sale at my Walgreens so I did repurchase it.  I use it in the shower for my whole body so I go through it too quickly to spend the money on it if it's not on sale.  I…

Saturday Hiking - Tenoroc Trail

Image
The Tenoroc Trail is located between Lakeland and Winter Haven, Florida.  It's part of the Polk County park system.  We hiked the loop that goes around the lake area.  It's a perfect place to hike during this very hot, sunny summer we're having here because this loop has lots of shade.  It's not a long loop; about 2.4 miles total.  There is a longer hiking trail that's a total of 6 miles. 






Weekend Shopping

My purchases this week were very practical.  CVS brand knew support bands - I needed some more knee and ankle bands that I use when I do my early morning walk/jogs.  These are inexpensive but give me the support I need.
It's still so hot that I've complete ditched wearing makeup.  I'm just wearing my tinted sunscreen with powder over it and some tinted lip balm.  I saw this and the Burts Bees one and thought they would both be good additions to what I have already.  I really like the Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula balm, but it's in an oval case.  It's ackward to apply a lip balm that is this shape.  I like the color of it too.
I'm a Burt's Bees fan so I knew I'd like this lip balm.  The color is nice and it's easy to apply without a mirror.



Frizz Ease Touch-up Crème - this product was totally disappointing.  It does nothing for my hair.  It doesn't smooth my naturally wavy hair and it doesn't help with the frizz from high humidity.
