Our local Walmart finally got Wet & Wild's Beetle nailpolish. It was on my Christmas stocking list, but it seems like Santa couldn't find it. It came with this cute purple heart ring. I love the color. It's on my thumb & pointer fingers.
I also noticed these new scented Revlon nailpolishes. I was going to buy the blueberry one, but I took a pic & totally forgot to put it in my cart.

or buy a buy a funny t-shirt. They have customized cases for ipads & iphones, mugs, hoodies, aprons, totes & tons more. Also babies, children & dogs t-shirts.
I got to review this Peace Love Shop shirt. I'm not really big on orange, but I think it's really cute. I originally ordered a size Large & it came & was really big. I contacted Chris @ Cafepress & he sent me out a size Medium right away. The shirts do seem to run big. It's very comfy & I'll be wearing this shirt a lot.
Go to Cafepress & see all that they have to offer. Valentine's Day isn't far away, so start looking now.
Cafe Press is offering one reader of Rantings of a Drama Queen's Mum a $30 gift card to their shop.

There is a pocket with a zipper inside & it comes with a matching little wallet/coin purse that is hitched, so you won't lose it. It's very roomy to fit all of my stuff. You can have your name, initial or monagram added to it. The red velvet tote would be great to use @ Christmas-time or maybe for your Valentine date night or anytime of year. Go to Simply-bags if you are looking for cute tote bags, diaper bags, cosmetic bags, beach bags etc....
