Sofia has become obsessed with Pink. Not hot pink (too edgy) or rosy pink (too grandma-ish), but that powdery baby pink that looks like cotton candy. She also LOVES Victoria’s Secret PINK, much to the disappointment of my wallet. During Black Friday, she used some of her tutoring money to splurge on some items while shopping in Aventura Mall and no surprise, everything she bought was pink.
I’m going to have to invest in a case load of Tide Sticks.
While shopping at Forever 21, she picked up this pink cropped sweatshirt. Since she is only 12 (MOM!!!! Why do you always have to point that out?), I did make her go up a size so that she was not exposing so much. She normally wears a Medium, but I had her get Large and it worked out perfectly. Slouchy enough for comfort, but not showing all her goods.
She also picked up this cream colored hoodie at Forever 21 Less. It’s actually a pajama top, but she said she was going to use it as a regular top. It’s not flimsy or see through and it cost about $12, so go for it, girl!
Needless to say, the bulk of her cash, and some of mine as well (She always manages to swindle me!) was spent in PINK. Every Holiday season they sell these boxed set with a sweatshirt top and leggings and normally it goes for $64.95, but PINK was feeling “generous” and reduced it to $54.95.
She also bought some of the body sprays that were on sale for $6 each. Sofia is addicted to body sprays and has quite a collection. Hey, not going to complain, I often times go into her room and spritz myself with one of her bottles.
It all evens out. I gave her life, she allows me to use her stuff. Everyone’s happy.
Now it’s time to gear up for Christmas. Sofia’s list of things she wants can circle the globe 3 times, so I am currently working on paring that down. She was kind enough to email me her list (save the trees!), which includes links to all the items on her wish list.
Don’t you just love this age? (Says this while pouring her 3rd glass of wine)
Till next time, my friends!
