This past Saturday, a couple of my good friends celebrated their son’s 1st birthday! The birthday party was super hero themed, which was a lot of fun!
A lot of my friends (the BF included) are huge superhero fans, so we pretty much went all out with our costumes… haha. I don’t know if you can tell from the picture, but my shirt had a detachable cape :) There was also a ton of comic-inspired decorations (think POW, CRASH, BOOM signs everywhere), including a huge Batman balloon ready to attack us at any minute.
Then on Sunday, to continue the “hero” theme, the BF and I stopped by the Toms Warehouse sale. I always loved the Toms brand because of their One for One model where, whenever someone purchases a pair of shoes from them, they donate a pair to children in need.
Buying from companies like Toms is my way of conscious spending – not only am I buying shoes, I’m also giving shoes to those who don’t have the means to purchase a pair for themselves. Plus, since it was a warehouse sale, all of their shoes were discounted at least 50% off – some up to 70%!
Unfortunately, we went on the last day of the sale, so the selection wasn’t too wide. But now that I know this sale comes around once a year, I’m making sure I’m going prepared next time – we’ll be there early and hopefully make it to the first or second day!
