Undies and Travel-Size Body Lotion Freebies

Thankfully, we are close to the mall, 5-8 minutes approximately. When there are coupons for free items arrive in our mailbox, trust me, they will not go to waste as I always claim them on time. I just can’t let freebies to pass by especially if I know what I am getting are from my favorite shops.

I don’t use body lotions fast, but over time I can accumulate almost enough to send to my family and friends in the Philippines. Victoria’s Secret and Bath and Body Works products are expensive, but with the use of coupons and store sales, that is when I will be able to afford many pieces to give out to selected people I know.

Coupons are one of the reasons why I keep coming back to shop at Victoria’s Secret. They have been so generous to me and so they deserve my loyalty as one of their thousand shoppers. I always look forward to receiving their coupons for freebies in the mail. Whenever they come, they make my day awesome.

Where Should You Buy a Fur?

When you buy a fur for yourself or someone you love, you want it to be perfect. A fur is a major investment on your part. Therefore, you need to be certain that it is money well spent. This means that you need to carefully select the furrier that you do business with. With so many furriers in this world, the choice of which one to buy your furs from is not a decision that should be made lightly. The quality and prices of furs vary greatly from one furrier to the next. Where should you buy a fur? Here are some valuable tips to help you make a decision.

1. Many years in the fur business

Choose a furrier that has been around for a long time. If a company has been selling furs for decades, this means that the quality of the furs they sell is exceptional enough to make people keep coming back again. It also means their prices are fair. ML Furs is just such a furrier. Opening their doors in 1951, the quality of their furs are second to none. Learn more about them by visiting https://www.mlfurs.com/.

2. A large inventory

You may want to buy a fur, but you may not have any idea what style you want. In cases like this, it is important that a furrier have a large inventory so that customers can keep browsing through different styles until they see something that piques their interest. Basically, you want to avoid having to go to many different fur retailers to find the exact fur you are looking for. The larger the inventory that a furrier has, the better the chance that you will be able to find something you like.

3. Pricing

A fur is not a cheap item. You should know that going in. That having been said, the prices on certain furs can differ dramatically depending on what store is selling them. Shopping around for the best deal is essential when you are making a purchase of this magnitude. You should always try to save yourself the maximum amount of money. Looking around online for the lowest price will not take you very long. The savings you get from doing this can be quite substantial. There are furriers that price their furs competitively, while others are extraordinarily high. Looking around will help you determine which ones fall into each of those categories.

Stuffed Peppers Recipe

I learned something new today. One of the FB friends posted her photo of stuffed bell pepper and I asked how she did it. It is so simple and easy that I don’t need to have the recipe in front of me while cooking. It is my first try to do this tonight and it resulted delicious.

 photo peppers_zpszohzjtub.jpg

Here’s how you do it.
3-4 large bell peppers
half a pound ground beef, brown it first before stuffing it in
diced onions, sliced mushrooms
pinch of salt
pinch of ground black pepper
a small can of tomato sauce
one cup cooked rice

Preheat oven at 400 degrees F.
You use cooked rice for faster/easy stuffing then mix all ingredients once beef is brown, stuff it all in the peppers, add some shredded cheese of your choice. Put in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. Serve hot and enjoy!

You don’t necessarily follow all stuffing above, you can create your own if you prefer.

Finding lingerie isn’t hard when you are shopping around with a website like Foxy Lingerie that seems to carry a little bit of everything.

Embrace the Day to Day

If you always wait for a special time for romance it is not going to happen. Embracing the ordinary in your day to day life will help you to learn that you can find romance everywhere.

Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Haul

What did I just say in the title, “haul”? That if you can call those four items a haul, hehe. Haul for me is bags and bags of merchandise bought. Anyway, I am proud of myself again today for scoring a great deal of these things in the picture below at Victoria’s Secret store.

They are currently having their semi-annual sale where bras, clothing, cosmetics, beauty/fragrance products are marked down to 75% off. Since I still have new bras with tag on, I did not need to buy any even though I got two $10 off a regular priced bra coupons. Instead, went ahead and used my 2 free panties coupons with purchase.

For 4 items that would have cost me $35 plus tax without the coupons, I stuck to my plan, just get the things that I intended to get before I went there. Believe it or not, I only paid $7.04 including tax for these VS items below. The body lotion is on clearance for $3.50, the panties original price each is $10.50 but with coupons, I paid them real low. What a steal, wasn’t it?

Honestly, my undies  are mostly freebies for being their loyal customers. I am loving it, they have my loyalty and they shower me with good rewards. Well they should, for VS is the only brand I wear whether it be a sport bra, panties and bras or even fragrance mists. It’s just a matter of give and take, ika nga!

What is an Anarkali Suit?

The anarkali suit was first introduced during the period of the Great Mughal Empire from 1526 to 1857. As a fashion style, it got its name from a famous courtesan named Anarkali who was part of the Great Emperor Akbar’s court. Known for her beauty and pomegranate-like complexion, the term “anarkali” meaning pomegranate blossom, was given to these beautiful suits.

Recently, anarkali suits have become popular again on the Indian fashion scene. Although styles have evolved since earlier periods, anarkalis are a highly desired fashion trend for the 21st century. A popular fashion style worn primarily by women in Pakistan, Northern India, and Middle-Eastern regions, anarkali suits are made up of the anarkali, a long, frock-style top, and the salwar, slim fitting pants that resemble leggings. The suit is fitted around the bust with a long skirt, usually mid-knee to floor length, with flowing pleats around the legs.

Throughout history, anarkali suits have symbolized a sense of royalty with luxurious fabrics and intricate details. Their form fitting bodice and flowing skirt enhance a woman’s figure and create feminine appeal. The long, flowing skirts and leggings hide any flaws around the waist and hips. During the Mughal period, many younger, unmarried women worn them to charm interested men. Today, they are a traditional fashion item that can be worn on any occasion.

Anarkali suits are made from luxurious fabrics like silk, satin, cotton or net and embellished with heavy embroidery and intricate details. There are beautiful stones, glittering threads, gota patti, and heavy brocades that create a feminine and elegant look. With heavily embellished suits, you don’t really need accessories. They make a stunning fashion statement on their own. If you want to accessorize, consider a pair of long ethnic earrings like jhumkas which can be found at Craftsvilla.

To choose the best anarkali suit for your body type, follow there simple tips:

Tall Women – Choose a floor length skirt that will emphasize your height and graceful figure. Mid-knee skirts won’t be as flattering to you. You have the height to pull off a heavily embellished suit, very flared skirt, and any neckline style you want.

Short Women – Choose a floor length skirt with less flare, as it will make you look taller. You can wear mid-knee skirts, but you should add a pair of beautiful high heels to make you look taller. A V-neck anarkali suit will visually lengthen your neck.

6-Topping Homemade Pizza

Pizza is bad, it contributes to your continuing growth of your belly but heck, it’s delicious. I love pizza but having a homemade pizza will make it less deadly, I believe. Although the dough is not from scratch, still I consider it healthy, haha.

Here’s what we had for dinner last night. I am proud to say that, with less baking experience I am still able to feed my family pizza with toppings we prefer. Dough and pizza sauce were store bought, but the toppings? I sliced/shred them myself.

Toppings include shredded sharp cheddar cheese, sliced canned pineapple, red bell pepper, pepperoni, sweet onions, olives, pre-cooked Italian sausage, minced garlic, a dash of sea salt and ground black pepper to taste.

The outcome? Yummy! It was all gone in one night. You see, we were getting healthy ingredients by making it at home instead of just ordering it at a pizza house or buying the frozen pizza with less toppings on it. Plus, it is easy to prepare and fast.
