Redeemed My Final Victoria’s Secret Reward Card

I scored a deal on these two items photographed below at Victoria’s Secret using two coupons, a $10 off a bra over $25 and a free lace hiphugger panty and a $10 secret reward card. Paid $11.11 including tax for these, not bad. It could have been over $30 if I didn’t use coupons and card. I love the bra especially, it’s Pink and it’s the only line of VS bras that I could wear. It is comfortable, stylish, fits me well plus it’s lacey which every woman wants rather than plain boring bras.

I lost track as to how many undies I received from them for free. You know when you are loyal to their store, you can expect freebies coming now and then. I love freebies, make me want to come back to their store and shop again and again for I know I will receive something cool and awesome from Victoria’s Secret.

I honestly don’t buy other brands of underwears from other retailers. Yes, I am a loyal and diehard shopper of VS so, let those freebies comin’ baby!

Shopping for Myself

I feel like I deserve to reward myself since I have been working so hard hauling some deals at different stores nearby. For weeks, all I have done was doing store hopping trying to stock up most of the stuff we need in the house. I feel exhausted and want to quit now since we got enough.

It is time to buy something for myself. It’s been quite a while now since I have not rewarded myself. These two below I purchased at Zulily are sure would make me feel beautiful, haha. The black and white maxi dress is only under $8 and the second photo which is you know look revealing maybe just under $6. Sweet deals, aren’t they? Not to mention they are free shipping. Zulily’s offer is I get free shipping on the second order if it is placed before midnight of the same day. So there I went, checked out and purchased these two aside from the other two items which are household items. Estimated shipping date will be on the 18th next month, way too long to wait but what else can I do?

purple sheer lace floral chemise – I chose this because summer is almost here and this I think would be comfortable during the warm nights for three months.

Sharper Uniforms for a Variety of Occupations

No matter what type of organization an owner is running, he may want his staff members to wear great-looking uniforms. Uniforms make it easy for customers to identify staff workers and also provide a consistent, professional appearance for people who work at the organization. A company such as Averill’s Sharper Uniforms provides outfits suitable for a broad range of occupational positions. Wait staff, hotel front desk personnel, store clerks, resort and country club workers, bartenders, security staff, delivery truck drivers and fitness center workers are examples of occupations that need uniforms.

Polo shirts, long-sleeved shirts and blouses, camp shirts, sweaters, vests and aprons are some products available from a uniforms provider. The company also can provide hats, scarves and neckties. The items can be manufactured in the organization’s color preferences and can feature logos and other graphics.

Some organizations want their employees to wear bright colors that make them stand out in a crowd so customers can easily find them. Another common choice is for the uniforms to be understated and matching in both colors and style. Bartenders and wait staff might all wear a tan polo shirt and black casual pants, for example. Retail stores and other operations typically like their employees to wear uniforms in colors that match the corporate colors.

Allied Shirt’s made in the USA Shirt

I thank Allied Shirts for the opportunity of me reviewing one of their products. I recently received this cool custom shirt in the mail from them. It is a mauve color with my blog name printed on it above the graphic that I personally chose from their website. I love the outcome of the printing for it is of high quality. The shirt itself is made in the USA which is very unusual for most of the clothing that can be bought in the US nowadays are made in China but Allied Shirt patronizes American made shirts.

I ordered a small size but guess, it is a little loose on me. I wished that they had an XS size for a proper fitting. Anyway, I am proud to have this shirt now to wear running errands outside at the same time advertising my blog to the public.

If you want to find a great deal on custom shirt printing, I would recommend Allied Shirts. You can choose as low as $2.95/shirt for basic tees. You can also browse their templates to be printed on your shirt. Templates under school, events and parties, college, military, religious, business and many others categories. Low price guarantee! Also, get 30% off promo and free shipping from them.

Photo below is the actual design I made online.

And here’s the photo of me wearing the shirt. It’s a little too big for me but I am happy with it.

Disclaimer: I did not receive any monetary compensation from the company, instead they sent me free customized shirt and free shipping in exchange of my honest review/opinion about the product.

Slimming Top

I know a few fashion bloggers that receive their clothing, accessories, handbags and other stuff free of cost by pitching companies and blog about them. While, I don’t do that often, I actually don’t mind paying for something that I can afford that I also like a lot.

One example is this striped slimming top that only cost me under $9 shipped. I love how it looks and its style. Although I don’t know yet if the material is good but I bought it from the clothing store that I bought several items from before so I trust this won’t disappoint me, material-wise.

Online shopping once in a while doesn’t hurt especially if you get the items for less than ten bucks plus they’re shipped free. I love it when I score great deals on clothing as well, who doesn’t want to save, you know?

My New 2 Pairs of Boots

In my other blog I mentioned that I will receive no gifts from my husband but I don’t feel I am very poor because of the fact that I bought a lot of stuff for myself since Black Friday. One of the many things I bought for me are these new pairs of riding and combat/military boots.

I only paid $59.71 including tax for these pairs from DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse) two weeks ago. They sent me a $10 gift certificate plus they offered free shipping for all members with a minimum purchase of $35. These boots were on clearance and luckily, when I was browsing for boots that day, my size was still available. I wear size 6.5 for normal shoes but I go one size up for boots for comfort and extra space for my feet.

I wore the  riding boots at church yesterday and I cannot complain a thing about the boots, they feel comfortable and they make me feel taller. I am glad I bought heeled boots this time for a change. Most of my winter boots are flat and a pair or two with heels don’t hurt.

… The other pair I haven’t tried fitting on yet, it can be worn folded or as it is as shown in the left photo below. Right now, they are just sitting in its original box waiting for the time I can wear them hopefully soon.

Taking Advantage of Puma Sale

It is not everyday I see some really deep discounts on name brand shoes and if I do, I try to take advantage of it. I bought a pair of Puma running shoes to give to my husband for Christmas, I bought the pair for only $24 plus. It came in the mail and looks pretty, I hope he likes the color I picked for him though, it is burgundy and I am not sure if he finds it nice.

Last week, I bought another at least three pair of the same brand on Puma website since they still have the sale going on and the free shipping offer. 3 Pairs and a tee for me total a little over $100 but, I did not pay that amount because I got an additional 30% of from them (get additional 30% off entire purchase of $75) so my total came down to $79 and a few cents and FREE SHIPPING!

Three of my brothers will receive these awesome goodness beautiful brand new Puma shoes while the drug-addicted brother of mine that I hated so much  won’t receive shoes from me. He will drool and eat his heart out once he finds out that he has no shoes, lol.

I can’t wait for them to arrive. My husband will be shocked I ordered too many shoes this time!

Choose Designer Sunglasses To Up Your Style Quotient

As you watch your favorite show, you may notice that each celebrity displays a fashion statement. If you will closely observe the way they complete their attire, they usually match their clothes with priceless accessories and enticing designer sunglasses. Looking at those elegant eye wear can trigger your interest. And you may plan of acquiring one too.

Select one that matches your taste. Pick an eye wear that will make you feel good every time you put it on. Make sure that you will not feel awkward with the style of the designer sunglasses.

Opt for sunglasses that can protect your eyes. They must secure you from glare and other visual damages and shield you from ultraviolet rays that can cause macular degeneration and cataracts. There is no specific color classification to determine the lenses’ coating against UV.

Choose a color that will compliment the tone of your skin. If you have a darker tone pick brown, orange, red, and gold frames. If your tone is lighter, select blue, black, pink, and silver frames.

Pick one that has good quality. The materials used to produce the designer sunglasses must be outstanding. Check on the hinges located at the corner of the sunglasses and see if they are properly attached. This is the common problem in ordinary sunglasses. Check out Frugaa.com & have a look at top famous brands like Zenni Optical, BestBuyEyeGlasses.com, Lens.com, GlassesUSA.com, Frames Direct & many others.

Identify authentic sunglasses by checking if the brand’s signature is engraved on the arms. Avoid inferior quality, fake, and cheap sunglasses because they can compromise your visual health and also because you can get great offers on brands. If you will be able to assure the product’s value, then you can be happy to know that it is worth the money you paid.

Another thing to consider in selecting the right designer sunglasses is your face’s shape.

Oval-shaped face. – Fortunately, you can wear any style of sunglasses because anything will fit you.

Round-shaped face. – Wide sunglasses are appropriate for round faces. Your face can look thinner with square and short-edged frames.

Square-shaped face. – Your face can appear softer and finer with oval and round sunglasses. You can even look better on cat-eye styles.

Triangular-shaped face. – Aviator and rimless sunglasses is perfect for this kind of shape. This can lessen emphasis in your jaws because people will focus on your eye area.

Designer sunglasses are now available online. With advanced technology, you can use a virtual mirror to see how a product looks on you. This service is available on credible online stores. You can also get great offers and minimal shipment fees from reliable sites. You can also use discount coupons available on Frugaa.com for buying your favorite brand.

Victoria’s Secret Promo Buy 2 Bras and get a Free Tote a $78 Value

I went to shop at the V.S store yesterday in the mall and did not plan spending more than $15 but I ended up buying two Pink bras. The temptation was hard to resist. I had a $10 bra coupon with me plus they offer a promo when you buy two any bras, you’ll get a free tote… that is without a minimum purchase.

I paid a bit over $50 for two bras, after using my coupon and got my silver bottom Victoria’s Secret tote and a SECRET REWARD card. I am okay if I just have $10 in my reward card and hopefully reduced that amount spent to $40. Promos like that doesn’t always come because they usually require customers to shop at least $65 or higher in order to qualify for a free tote.

I am happy with the tote because it looks prettier from the outside and is spacious inside. Although there is no velcro or magnetic closure, it is good enough to carry all essentials when traveling. This lovely tote will go to my mother and hope she likes it as I do.

Whenever I go shop for under garments or lingerie, I often thought of my sister, so the pink lacey bra will go to her. It is cute and is perfect for her age. I love her to death that is why I don’t hesitate buying her stuff for I know that makes her happy, besides, she is a person that knows how to appreciate the things that are given to her.

Victoria’s Secret Order Arrived Earlier than Expected

I am pleased of the early arrival of my order from Victoria’s Secret. I placed my order last Thursday and I got the package five days after that. How awesome? I don’t mind paying $6 for the shipping as long as the items arrived in no time.

Here’s a deal I got online, $26 for 7 panties, 3 travel size fragrances and a secret reward card. Who knows how much is in the reward card, if I get lucky I can have the $500 hehe. I don’t really need new undies but I went ahead and bought 7 since they were on sale and three of these beautiful undies will go to my little sister in the Philippines.

I hope she’ll love what I give to her for I personally pick them, colors and sizes appropriate for a thirteen-year old girl. I can give a lot to her without hesitation because I love her and she is my sister. She is also appreciative and grateful for everything that’s given to her, unlike a few people out there…. they don’t give value to the small things that come their way.
