Out And About: Whole Foods

Happy Friday! :)

One of the things I like doing with my Mom and my siblings is grocery shopping.
We usually go to Ralphs or Vons every other weekend.
The last time though, we decided to go to Whole Foods.

Seriously, Whole Foods is amazing!
Yes, their products are quite expensive, but I think it's okay to splurge from time to time, especially if you're getting quality products, right? :)

While I was at Whole Foods, I took some photos with my phone to share with you guys:

Of course, I had to start with cosmetics, haha! ;)

And right across the aisle are more beauty products!!!

Photobucket

I had a hard time deciding which body wash to get...

Photobucket

These coconut oils smell amazing! My favorite was lavender! :)

Photobucket

Burt's Bees toothpaste???
I totally didn't know they made these, how cool!

And then there were soaps...

Photobucket

The choices: Unscented Goat Milk, Rose Petal, Lavender, and Shea Butter.

These are so pretty, huh?

From the beauty products, I made my way to, what else... FOOD! ;D

Photobucket

Now I know where to get chocolates, nuts, and other baking needs. ;)

Photobucket

Chocolate = Heaven!

Photobucket

I love Gruyere cheese!

Photobucket

Cheese, cheese, cheese...

Photobucket

And more cheese!

Aaaah, I love Whole Foods! :D

Where do you shop for groceries?
Any fun plans for the weekend?

However you're spending your weekend, I hope you have a good one! :)

  13. I've never been to Whole Foods before, but I think I might start. All those natural beauty products look great. I never knew Burts Bees sold toothpaste. I wonder why they don't carry them with the other BB products in the drugstore.

  15. Whole Foods is the best, girl! I seriously love grocery shopping there even though their stuff can be quite expensive. I love those soap bars. They also have a place where you can slice them yourself. :D

    Lots of love, B
