Open-Back Top is What I Like

I am 32 at the moment yet I don’t let this number keep me from buying and wearing trendy tops. I don’t have a thin body nor a sexy bony-showing back but I love wearing open-back tops. It is because, in my mind and in my heart, I don’t feel 32.

I don’t get attracted to tops that look vintage or too oldie. No, if I wear those, it’s like I am declaring to the world that I am getting old, haha. Just my own opinion. No offense please.

Anyway, I am glad I now have this real cute open-back long sleeves from Amazon and it truly is comfortable. I could wear this every time I go to the mall or a dinner with my family if not for its neon pink color. I have dark skin tone and I get even darker if I wear this often.

It is a current trend and it’s even cuter when paired with the right bra. I saw other reviewers on Amazon posting photos of themselves fitting on this top wearing a cami, like ladies, seriously??

How To Earn Freebies from Victoria’s Secret and Bath and Body Works

I tell you what, I can go to the mall and not spending any dime for items I wear and use everyday, instead, bringing them home for free. Loyalty to one’s store pays off, once you become their loyal customer, rest assured, you will get many freebies ahead of you!

I don’t buy my panties anymore. Most of them are free from PINK by Victoria’s Secret. My bras are all PINK too, although I did not get them for free but at least, I got them at discounted items plus a whole lot more free stuff from them. Same goes with lotions from Bath and Body Works store. I have a couple of travel size BBW lotions free from them as well.

Here’s I do it.

1. Become a member by applying for a Victoria’s Secret or Pink credit card. You can apply in person at their store or online.
2. When you shop in-store, do not hesitate to provide your email and physical address so they can track your purchases and so they can send you brochures, coupons and other promos to your home address in the future.
3. The more you shop, the more you get coupons from them. Once you have your VS credit card, always swipe it for points. Certain points earned will be equivalent to certain reward card in the future when you reach the threshold they set for you.
4. Also, if you choose to shop online. Sign up on EBATES and search for your favorite store through their site to earn cashback when you check out successfully. First time members, receive $ too!

As for Bath and Body Works, it pretty much work the same way as Victoria’s Secret since they are sister companies only I don’t hold a BBW credit card but I do provide my email to them when they ask in store plus I have been a long time customer to this store so coupons arrive in our mailbox once in a while.


….. PINK panties and BBW lotion I got for free the other day with the use of coupons they sent me to our home address. That is $20 plus savings there for both items.

Great Deal on Clothing and Shoes at Old Navy Store

I’ve been back to Old Navy store twice already. It is not my habit to go back to the store and shop a lot of clothing but when I find real deep discounts on clothing and shoes for the kids, I wouldn’t mind driving there twice or more.

Last Friday last week, Old Navy had a promotion buy 2 clearance items get 1 free. That promo only lasedt for three days. I was able to avail that on Friday, bought quite a lot of slippers, boy shorts and some adult tops starting from 47 cents up to a little over $5. I spent only $27 plus that day plus I got a $10 Old Navy super cash certificate.

Yesterday I went back again and I was not disappointed. I found more awesome merchandise that are less than a dollar each. More shorts for the boys, slippers and slip on shoes for both girls and boys, some shorts for the girls at 47-97 cents. Imagine how amazing that is? Although the buy 2 get 1 free item promo has ended, I still think I got a good deal on my second haul. Some of which will be shipped to my relative in Oregon for she requested me to buy some for her siblings too.

 

…. photo below are just 97 cents per pair. Ever wonder why I ¬†bought a lot of this? Well, they will go into my balik-bayan box to be sent to my brother and nephews in the Philippines.

Old Navy End of Season Clearance Starting at 47 Cents

Now is the perfect time to shop for clothes for you and your entire family especially for your kids. One of my favorite destinations to shop for clearance is Old Navy. When we say, clearance, their merchandise is truly marked down to like they almost give it away.

You just have to take your time and have patience when shopping for clearance. There are plenty to choose from and some of the mark down items are buried deep under the not so deal items. As temperatures get dropping down, stores are also getting rid of their previous merchandise so you really need to head on to your fave store and start shopping for next summer’s outfit.

As for my haul yesterday, I found quite a lot on women’s section to be cheap. Two of my favorite finds are the blue hound’s tooth dress for under $8 and a beautiful beige/faux snakeskin body bag which I love a lot. It was marked down half price off and so I grabbed it. If the bag was sold at less than $15 and it isn’t as beautiful as the one I’m wearing below, I would even bother spending my money on it. But man, when I laid eyes on it, thought this bag was gorgeous for half off price.

Other stuff I found was 47 cents women’s sleeveless shirts, 2 summer dresses for my 7 year old kid, one long sleeves and two other top for my mother which are under $2 each. I paid a little over $32 for everything plus a $10 Old Navy supercash good for next shopping trip.

I am happy with my haul and yes, would love to go back there again sometime soon.

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.

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!

Old Navy Skater Dress for Under $1

Money is tight these days yet I managed to shop some clothing for me and my girls. They are growing everyday so I am constantly on the lookout for nice yet good deal dresses, undies and other things for them. I am back to shopping at Old Navy store now after such a long time of dodging them because I believed the quality of their clothing materials had declined but with all the deals, sales and clearance prices going on at their store, I find myself going there again.

Last time I went there, I was able to find this super cute skater dress for $1.97 clearance price, large size in children’s department and it turned out to be just 97 cents when I checked out. It fits me good plus the sweet price tag. I did not hesitate to grab it along with a couple items in my hand that time. I bought two dresses actually, same skater dress style but different color and stripes.

I don’t normally find such a price like this but when I do, rest assured… I won’t be going home empty-handed. Believe it or not, I went home that day with 5 items in my hand for just a little over $27 total plus I earned supercash for next shopping of $25 or more. Yes, that’s how thrifty I am when it comes to scouring for clothing deals.

Love it!

Old Navy Active Clothing to Inspire Us

There is nothing fulfilling than being able to perform my goals each week, to workout 2-3x and do my walking exercise 2x per week. To do this, I should think that there is no excuse for me because I don’t go to work and there is nothing else to do during the week. On weekends, I try as much as possible to walk a mile.

In order to be inspired, I bought some active clothing while they are on sale. Getting the right outfit for my intended exercise makes me believe that I am actually exercising and will be more motivated to sweat. So far, I am doing good with it and sticking to my goal which I am loving so much.

I have bought a couple of sports bra over the course of months and probably will be buying more if I find one, a few pairs of active bottoms and also active tank tops. Here’s the latest buy I made at Old Navy. They were on sale but still I paid a little over $75 for everything in the picture.

I decided to buy active outfits for my girls too so they feel they need to be active too and would enjoy more the outdoors by riding their bikes or just playing in the playground. My firstborn is loving her outfits and worn the purple pair right away as soon as I told her I bought her something.

…I shall go back to Old Navy store in a couple days to buy the matching bottoms of my pink and blue tanks/bras. Hopefully the prices would come down by then so I can buy two or more pairs.
