Weekly beginnings under $10

Why not start of this week on the right foot...you know, treating ourselves for under $10.
Sometimes treating your dog to a yummy bath is like treating yourself. B and I just bought this for the pups. It smells divine and you don't have to mess with slippery bottles, which makes for a happier bathing experience.
Shampoochie Dog Soap $7
via Greenstone Soap Company
I don't know about you, but my nail beds take a beating and are often one of the most neglected parts of my beauty routine.
Boots Cuticle Oil $7.99
via Target
I'm generally not a perfume wearer, but there are probably times where some would be helpful. I like the idea of a solid perfume as it's convenient to carry and there's no fuss. Pacifica's packaging is impressive enough to make me try it.
Pacifica Solid Perfume in Thai Lemongrass $9
via Pacifica
I adore the seafoam and cream color of these vintage inspired earrings.
Fancy Nancy Earrings $9
via Bijou Bazaar
I'm always trying to figure out way to reform bad habits and create good ones in their place (and by "always" I mean the occasional whim). This set of 30 note cards is supposed to help you organize your life in 30 days. I'm willing to try just about anything.
Habit Former $6
via See Jane Work
My love of scarves knows no bounds. This one's kelly green with polka dots...tie it around your neck with a white tee and jeans and you're good to go.

Love the solid perfume idea; I usually forget to put any on in the mornings (as I'm a zombie before my chai infusion), so I should carry some around with me;)
The last time I treated myself was a big one: I just got a new Nikon D80! Squeeee! It hasn't arrived yet, but I can't wait to start using it . . .

Haven and Home said...

After this weekend I need the cuticle oil and my dog needs the soap. I love the under $10 idea!

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

Great ideas!
Like you, I am a sucker for scarves, so that one caught my attention. Also the Lemongrass solid perfume sounds fresh and clean.

Hugs you on a Monday.
Have a great one! xo

I love your under $10 lists - seeing something from boots made me so nostalgic! I used to pick up little things from them when in England. Now of course, they've even taken over the Target, but no complaints from me!

Those good habit cards sound fun... Would make a good grad gift. And you've just reminded me of the cuticle oil I have hidden up in my cabinet. I'm going to go pull that down and treat my hands today. Thanks!

That scarf is too fun for under $10 - and it totally seems like your style. Can't believe you haven't snapped it up yourself!

Ooh, fantastic finds! I need that dog soap, stat! My dogs have their annual vet visit tomorrow, so it will be a day of walks to wear them out, baths to de-stink them, then off to see my gal-pal (and one of their favorite people) Dr. Jenn.

Quixsa said...

After a terrible weekend, I treated myself to a pint of ice cream tonight after dinner with friends and the boyfriend. I'm looking into the habit former as well :0) Such a neat and different idea.
Thanks for paying attention to the $$ of things.

Southern Aspirations said...

As always, great finds. Interested in the doggie shampoo of course! And the habit forming cards sound perfect.
