I’m fine mamas! Thanks for asking. I just had to vent that out because of events that I have experienced over this month and a conversation I had last night. I miss you and I hope everything is fine with you! We need to catch up! xx
• After school, my sister & I went to try a new place for some Taro Boba. The place we went to was 2 stores down from the Goodwill, so we decided to drop by the Goodwill for a bit. We were only there for like 15 mins & boy were those 15 mins good to me! ;) I found an awesome pair of black suede platform sandals for $5.99 that were my size! What’s crazy is they look practically brand new, with no major wear, stains, etc. So after finding that pair, I decided to look around the clothes & then decided to go thru the shoe racks again. I swear the Thrift Gods were blessing me that day because I found an identical pair, but in a tan colorway for the same price & the size! I was sooo happy! Haha. The tan pair looks more brand new than the black pair. They honestly look like they’ve never been worn. Can’t believe I scored 2 pairs of the same shoe for such an awesome price. What makes it even more sweet is that they’re super comfy. Not only will they give me the height I really need ( I’m 5’2 >.< ), but I can be comfortable.Thanks again, Goodwill! I luh yew! <3
• It was $5 Bag Day at my fave thrift store, which meant you can fill up a bag with as many clothes as you can for only $5. My sis & I decided to share a bag & we had 15 items in total (About 33 CENTS each!!!!) I got 9 items. My fave finds are the red pussy bow blouse & striped pussy bow blouse. I’ve been looking for blouses like these for a long time & I got lucky with finding two of them. I was already a pretty thrifty person, but after going to this thrift store, I’m such a cheapskate now. Hahaha. Like Goodwill prices seem so expensive compared to the deals I can get on Bag Days. All thanks to Yelp. :)
Since I had $3 ExtraBucks rewards from when I purchased the Maybelline Spring 2014 Limited Edition Color Tattoos , I decided to pick up some more goodies . This week (3/23 – 3/29), you can also earn another $3 Extrabucks rewards if you spend $10 on Maybelline products . I purchased the “Vision In Violet" Color Elixir for $8.99, which I’ve been wanting to try for the longest . Along with that , I also purchased a Color Show Polka Dots Nail Polish in "Pretty In Polka" for $4.19, as a filler so I’d get the $3 EB rewards .
Above , I compared "Vision in Violet" to the Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Glosses I currently own .
All Milani Cosmetics are BuyOneGetOne 50% Off this week , so I took advantage of that sale & stacked 2 of my $3 EB rewards . The Black Cherry Lipstick was $6.29 & the Sugar Plum Lip Pencil was $6.49 . I previously bought Sugar Plum when there was a $2.99 sale on Milani lipsticks & lip pencils at CVS back in December & it’s easily become a holy grail lip liner for me . It’s GORGEOUS ! After the BOGO 50% OFF deal & my $6 EB rewards were applied , I only had to pay $4.40 out of pocket . Keep in mind that I made two transactions so I’d get another #3 EB rewards after purchasing $10 worth of Maybelline products to use towards purchasing the Milani products . After the Milani transaction , I received another reward , this time it was $3 off of $15 purchase of Mascara, Lipstick, Nail Polish, Foundation or Blush . Yes , makeup is more expensive at drugstores like CVS , Rite Aid , etc. compared to Target or Walmart , but there are rewards if you sign up for their beauty clubs .
6/3/11 - Today I received my very first pair of Jeffrey Campbell Shoes! Meet the “Foxy” Espadrille Platform Sandals.
Many thanks to Runway Rundown for choosing me to win a $100 mini shopping spree at Lulu’s. Couldn’t believe these babies were under $100, being that most, if not all, JC Shoes are at least $125. I got lucky! Can’t wait to wear these. Love love love them!
