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.

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?

The Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Deals I Got

I am a bit disappointed to know that the flannel PJ set I have been wanting to buy at Victoria’s Secret is still expensive for me to think that they are having a semi-annual sale right now yet the cost of the set is the same price before Christmas.

I have waited for the sale to come but guess, I did not buy it. Instead, I opted to these cute little things photographed below for so little money I paid to buy them. Thanks to a generous friend who e-gifted me with $25 in VS. They are worth a total of $41.41 including tax and shipping but only paid $6.41 final price.

The body scrub alone, the price is $10, Jet set portable make up kit on sale for $17.99 originally $35 and the glossy tint lip sheen for $3.99. I used the $25 egift and a $10 coupon that the store sent me weeks ago, that is how I came up with the $6.41 for all three items.

It was my first time to purchase a make up kit for I am not into make ups, this beautiful kit will go to my balik-bayan box so my sister can use it whenever she has activities in school that requires her to apply make up on the face. The tint lip sheen I am going to use for sure, it is recommended by a friend and I rely on her testimony that it can somehow enhance my lip appearance once applied,  we’ll see.

I love it when I score great deals on beautiful things. You see, there are ways to shop and not pay a whole price for it. You just have to find out how or be smart to take advantage of the sale and coupons. That’s one of the many things I learned living here in the States. Why pay full price if you can get them for such little money, right?

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!

Hello Kitty Fashion Earrings and Watch

I don’t like having a cat as a pet but I definitely, without a doubt love Hello Kitty cartoon character. Not only me who is into kitty but my first born as well. I can see how her eyes light up when she sees a Hello Kitty anywhere. Hello Kitty is the cutest thing ever and so to prove my obsession with it, I purchased these fashion earrings and a blue watch on Amazon last week.

The cute HK earrings were sold for 99 cents a pair so I bought three, one for me, my first born and my little sister. I wonder if the company which is from China is going to make a profit for this since it’s only less than a dollar and it ships free. Amazing deal, isn’t it?

Being fashionable doesn’t have to be expensive. It doesn’t matter how much your stuff cost as long as you know how to carry your clothing and you look good on them…

…… I will for sure wear this HK pair everyday to school once they arrive! I am excited and it feels forever waiting for the items to be here.

I Prefer to Shop Online Sometimes

Admittedly, I prefer shopping online sometimes than going to the mall especially if shopping for my family back home. Although we tend to pay for the shipping and we cannot physically touch the items online yet I find it easy to find the things I really want to buy. Items are laid out neatly in front of me with just a click of a mouse.

We are only less than ten minutes away from the mall but going there is sometimes a bit tiring plus the fact that, the items you see online might not be available in-store or they don’t have the same promotions offered online. Aeropostale is the brand of clothing I buy for my brothers, they are comfortable, nice colors/prints and true-to-size. One instance, I browsed for men’s clothing online first before heading out to the mall, unfortunately, almost all of the nice items were gone at the mall so I went back home and shopped online for the things that were cheaply priced.

I didn’t mind paying for the shipping because I loved what I bought when the items arrived to our front door. I’d rather pay an extra five bucks for my items rather than forcing myself to shop the ones that are leftovers by other customers in-store. I would be very disappointed if I did.

I paid less than $30 for all the items photographed below, that’s including shipping and tax. Men’s shirts are V-neck style in stripes which were not available in-store.

Dream Wedding Dresses at Dress First

I have been waiting for October to come because it is such a special month for both me and my husband for we are going to celebrate our 9th year wedding anniversary comes October 16. Yes, it has been that long yet it feels like we just got married not so long ago. It is probably because we have such a good marriage that makes me feel blessed to have been married with the man of my dreams.

When we speak about wedding, the first thing that comes in our mind is a beautiful Wedding Dress. Our wedding is the grandest, the most unforgettable and special moment of our lives so it is just right to pick the right motif and the perfect wedding dress brides could ever wear because it is their big day and a wedding can only happen once in our lifetime. Well, it is in a woman’s conservative point of view.

If we are to get wed again in our tenth anniversary, I would surely, with all my heart renew our vow that we made almost 9 years ago. And I would be more than willing to go through all the stress in my wedding preparation just to make it beautiful. I am eyeing on wedding dresses, shoes, bouquets and wedding accessories at DressFirst right now and oh boy, there are just tons of gorgeous dresses to choose from.

However, after just going through each page, I found the stuff that I really would like to try on someday. Following photos below are lifted from DressFirt.com’s website that I believe are perfect. As for the wedding dress, I love the sexy detail of this Mermaid Sweetheart Chapel Train Organza Satin Wedding Dress With Embroidery Beadwork. This dress can be bought either in white, ivory, champagne and pink. I also love that a bride can have an option as to what color the embroidery is going to be according to her taste. Embroidery color choices are white, ivory, champagne, pink, gold and silver.

My second favorite from their site is this Mermaid V-neck Chapel Train Satin Lace Wedding Dress With Beadwork. If a bride is a bit conservative then this dress would be perfect for her since it is not too revealing with 3/4 lacey sleeves yet it has the elegance and current look of the gown.

Of course, one has a wedding gown, she should then choose the veil that would greatly match her dress.

9 years ago, I chose ash blue as my motif and if I had to choose again, I would go fuchsia or hot pink this time as my motif and I think the two bridesmaid dresses below are the prettiest.

Coach Getaway Signature Packable Crossbody – This is the Last One

I bought this Coach brass/orange spice crossbody bag because I feel like I need it! Every time I buy me a new purse whether it be a tote, shoulder bag, body bag or wristlet, I tell myself THIS IS THE LAST ONE! But who am I kidding? I am fooling myself, right? Because here I am again, I found myself checking out from Coach factory website 40 minutes ago. I should not regret for buying this for “I REALLY NEED IT”. I hope it is the perfect size for me to be using everyday to fit my valuables when sending my kid to school.

I got a couple of the same brand handbags in my closet, a few of them still have tags, others I’ve only used once but why the heck am I buying another one again? Sniff! Sniff! I am so high right now. I just fueled my worldly wants. I have been thinking of buying a crossbody bag but been also putting it off knowing that I am trying to save some money for future use.

Duh blah blah, I fell inlove with this yellow color so I went ahead and checked out, I thought the price was okay but when shipping and tax added up, it went up to $74 total. No, I don’t want to regret it since I paid cash through my blogging money for it but heck… the fact that I am buying another bag (conscience) haunting me.

… left photo is just to show how it looks on me… it’s the one on the right is the color I bought… I know it’s weird and crazy color but it’s interesting to look at.
