I had some retail therapy at the mall the other day.
When I was younger, I purchased clothes. Now, I purchase random kitchen goodies. I ended up picking up a few random and affordable things at Sur la Table the other day.
A sparkly, pink spatula by Le Creuset – $8.
New napkins – $1.99 each
Mini heart dishes – $1 each
A mini Le Creuset dish with lid – $20 (not super cheap, but compared to the full-size version, a steal!)
Oven thermometer – $8.
Hubby made dinner tonight.
Earthfare cheeseburgers, Alexia waffle fries, and grilled asparagus. He even got to bust out the grill! I can’t wait till the weather warms up more and we can use the grill all the time.
Bailey says hey guys! He also wants you to visit my Facebook page (click) for exclusive Bailey photos and other fun times.
And check the bloggie around 11am ET on Wednesday for a new Work Chic post about the perfect pair of pants for (business casual) work.
Have you found any cheap-chic kitchen goodies lately? What are they?

I want that sparkly spatula!!!
It’s Le Creuset! I bet it’s available in a lot of stores. 🙂
I love buying kitchen stuff! From food to gadgets – the kitchen is my place! =)
i love Sur la Table! they always have the best fun kitchen finds! i haven’t been to one since christmas but i got a fun salad dressing bottle/emulsifier there that i love!
I can’t stand it, your dog is toooooo cute. makes me want to get one to accompany my golden now!
Awww thanks Jac! 🙂
Le Creuset is my absolute FAVE brand of kitchen goodies. Why oh why must they be so expensive? If you have a Marshalls or TJ Maxx nearby, you may want to check them out though- about a month ago, mine had a whole slew of La Creuset pitchers, ramekins, cassoulets and more…I ended up with two mini ramekins and a small casserole dish for $25!
I should have looked there first! Some other readers said they found the mini casserole dishes there. Gah! lol
I am insanely jealous of your dinner! I love Alexis waffle fries (or any waffle fries for that matter!). Oh and glitter too – you can’t have too much glitter in the kitchen 🙂
You can’t have too much glitter PERIOD! Hahahahahaha. 🙂 Oh yea, those fries are awesome!
Those heart dishes were only a dollar??? I want some!!
Yes! They were on sale. They were only like almost $2 full price.
Love the spatula! Random kitchen goodies are way better than clothes ;).
I feel like they’ll get better use. I don’t like wearing the same clothes too much but I love using the same kitchen goodies over and over and OVER! hahahaha
Those kitchen goodies are so cute! I can understand that you couldn’t resist.
Looking forward to your work chic post! I just realized today, that I own no real business (casual) clothes, as my workplace is totally casual (read: jeans, shirts, sneakers).
Did you see the post? https://thechiclife.com/2011/03/work-chic-investment-pants.html
You probably don’t need it since your dress code is so casual. Enjoy it! 🙂
Love the dishes! I have such a collection of cute dishes but I think my hubby is starting to get annoyed with them all. LoL
Poor food-blogger-hubbies. hahahaha
I adore those heart dishes! So cute! I also agree that fun kitchen stuff is better than clothes any day!
Oh, you sound just like me! I’d rather have a new kitchen toy than new clothes! I bought a new spatula from Sur La Table last week and some new placemats from Target just yesterday! I’m a sucker for a sale.
I love kitchen gadgets too! But then I end up forgetting to use them! I saw the mini Creuset pots at Marshall’s – they’re adorable!
Love the Bailey photos!!!
Bailey is SO cute!! I love him! I just bought my own mini casseroles (not Le Creuset so they were about 1/4 the price) and I used them to bake eggs! You should definitely try it; makes for a super easy breakfast! I blogged about it here: http://aroundtheveggietable.com/daytoday/coffee-confusion 🙂
I’ve been toying around with a baked egg recipe in my head for months now, but I haven’t quite worked out how I want the flavors to go together. I love your tex-mex style one. Sounds good! 🙂
I love all of your turquoise/aqua and that little Le Crueset is too cute. And Bailey is adorable as always.
I love shopping for goodies like that so much more than clothes now too.
Hahaha! So funny, but true! I love buying stuff for my kitchen and home! Plus it’s an investment. Things for your kitchen you will use for years but a $30 might be out of style in 6 months!
Yea, I feel like a sparkly pink spatula will never go out of style in the Chic house. hahaha 🙂
Love the little heart plates! So cute.
Thanks sweetie! 🙂
I’m just like you! I got so excited when I saw your colorful new kitchen purchases– so cute!! I just bought a Le Creuset tea pot in that turquoise and I love it!
Love the pink glitter spatula and small Le Creuset pot! I have the clear glitter spatulas by Le Creuset and they make baking that much better! Also own a large white Le Creuset round pot and it cooks like a dream.
