Weekend Rewind, What's in my Bag?

Hello Hello! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty eventful. Friday night was spent with some
of my girlies with dinner and a movie. We went to see the new Nicholas Sparks movie with 
Zac Efron, The Lucky One. I should do another whole post of my awful thoughts of that movie. 
In a nutshull... none of us liked it. Bad acting. No chemistry between the characters. And overall
just no emotional connection. I was SOO disappointed. :( 

Saturday and Sunday were spent celebrating birthday's! I love birthdays. I am a HUGE birthday 
person. Yes, I am that girl that plans my own birthday parties b/c I know no one else will 
and it's so much fun! What other day do you get to celebrate a whole day of YOU?! 
My friend Alison makes fun of me ALL THE TIME for being like that, but she's coming around. 
She actually planned the best Curious George party yesterday for her little boy who turned 3. 
I was so proud of her and all the effort she put into it! 

Anywhoo, some Express goodies were in my bag this weekend. I had several coupons for being 
a card holder on top of a reward card they sent me. I found these cropped colored Zelda skinny jeans.
I bought the outfit below on Saturday and wore it out Saturday night for my friend Matt's 
birthday party. I loved the jeans so much that I went back on Sunday for another pair! I still had 
more coupons that were valid so I ended up getting a really good deal on these. 

LOVE this teal color called "Blue Dazzle." They fit so great and I love the 
cropped cut for summer! 

The top I have on was also from Express. I don't really know how to describe it. It's a silver
tank with a crochet type overlay. It's dressier. Fun. I like it. 

So, yeah like I said after wearing the teal ones out on Saturday and knowing I still had a coupon
that was good I went back Sunday and grabbed another pair!! This colbalt blue color is called
"Celestial Blue." 

The hot pink baggy shirt is from Express. I actually wanted this shirt in the white
to go with the blue, but they didn't have my size. I thought the hot pink would be a fun
and playful color for summer. I kind of like it with the blue. 

LOVIN these pants. They retail for $69 and they also had red, orange, and white 
in the store. May have other colors online. 

My mom is notorious for buying Groupons and giving them to me. She is a 
Groupon nut! So, she had bought a microdermabrasion groupon for a spa here in town and
it expired next week. She asked if I wanted to use it, but honestly I had that done 
last year and it was not a pleasant experience. Yes, I know it's good for your skin, but
I just didn't want it done right now. 

Anywhoo, they let me use the groupon for actual skincare products they sell in the 
store so I cashed it in for this retinol eye treatment cream.  As you can see they come
in individual capsules that you break open. I don't have any kind of eye cream so 
I am excited to have something to use.

I don't know anything about this line. I'm sure it's just a fancy spa product. There are 60
capsules inside and it retailed for $61!! Yikes. 


So, that's my weekend. I hope you had a superb one. My ten year high school reunion is 
NEXT WEEKEND. Holy Moly. How in the heck has it been ten years?! Stay tuned 
this week for outfit reveals of what I'm going to wear... I think! ha! 

Happy Monday! 

Verse of the Day:
"When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom."
Proverbs 11:2


  1. I want to borrow those pants! (If my booty will let me)

  2. You got it chick! I owe you some borrows from all the dresses you have let me use lately!


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
