New Lone Star Quilt in Our Bedroom

I don’t always purchase a bedroom item unless it is necessary but upon seeing this lovely Lone Star quilt on Macy’s website, I fell in love with it right away, no doubt about that because I could not take my eyes and mind off of it. I find the quilt very pretty for it represents the great State of Texas and I thought, it would be nice to have it in our bedroom.

I asked my husband if I can buy it and he agreed to it so I did buy it with no hesitation. The fact that it was sold for 60% off last week, that made me desire to have this quilt even more! I finally was able to lay it on our bed yesterday and got a compliment from my husband when he saw it the first time saying I got a great taste and that it looks pretty! Yeah right, that’s why I bought it!

Original is $380 and bought it for $160 plus tax. Not only that, I also received¬†$10 cashback through ebates.com. If you haven’t signed up, please click on the link and set up yours, begin shopping and start earning cashbacks! Thank you.

Year-end Deals

In America, people tend to be busy looking for deals and steals on or after Christmas. Whether online or in-stores, a never-ending deals are expected but it is up to you whether to be tempted to go on a shopping splurge or not. Depends mainly on the budget of a person if she goes shop and drop.

As for me, although I have everything I need as of this moment, I still shop here and there but with limitation and if I have great coupons/gift cards to use.

First photo is the Clinique lipstick set I purchased on December 23,2016. Sold for $25 online and used $15 worth of Macy’s money/gift card, final out of pocket is $11.81 and it’s free shipping. Plus I earned 75 cents for shopping thru ebates before going to the retailer’s website. You should do that too because, ebates cashback can add up.

Second photo is the Victoria’s Secret gift set I bought in-store for 65% off. The pouch with mist and lotion, originally sold for $20, got it for $7, the big gift set was $35, came down to $12 plus. I used my $15 gift reward from them for reaching my minimum points. Ended up paying just $4.80 for both gift sets!

Deals on Shoes at DSW

For some women, going shopping is their stress reliever which I find it true. Although I am not a big spender, going to the store I like is soothing to me. One of the favorite stores I love going in our area is the DSW shoe store in Hulen. I know exactly where to go once inside, to the clearance rack. I went there today for the reason of returning two pairs I bought online because I was disappointed, the weekender set did not come with the items so I felt I should return both of them, I don’t need them anyway!

My trip to DSW today did not go wasted because I found three pairs for only $31.34, this is after that $5 off $49 purchase coupon that came with the shoes ordered online and a $15 certificate that was in my account.

The soft gold or champagne color low heel shoes was the highlight of this shopping trip. I don’t have open-toe shoes like this plus this pair is comfortable and soft to walk on. It came down to $15 after a discount. The other two pairs are 80% off each, you do the math, that’s the final price for each after a yellow sticker discount.

So I took home three pairs of shoes for just a little over $30. I don’t need to wear designer brands, as long the shoes are pretty, comfy and look good on me, I am happy with them. I am not a hard spender either, clearance rack in every store is my favorite corner to go straight whether for clothes, groceries, shoes or anything you can think of. Trust me, it is painful to think buying full price on items you can get for deep discounts.

This is one of the many things I like about living here because these kind of discounts only happen in the US, back in the Philippines it’s the business’ that fool customers, they make customers believe they got a 10% discount on a shirt but little do they know, the store only raised the price to ten percent. Also, there are no grocery discounts or “clearance” sale over there.

…. my beautiful champagne open toe shoes and two pairs of strappy sandals that will go to the Philippines for my sister. It’s winter here now that is why those two summery sandals are marked down heavily.

Beautiful silver braided band pearl adjustable open rings

Look what I have here. Beautiful silver braided band pearl adjustable open rings set of two that I got for free by Habeats! I find the style unique and these rings suit my skinny fingers. I find it difficult to shop for rings online because of the sizing. No matter how I try to buy the ring size which I think fits me but for some reason, when the rings arrive, they are too loose for me.

This is set is awesome as they are open and can be adjusted to fit my rings. They look antique in style too! Curious where I got them free? Get yours here www.amazon.com/dp/B01GJGGL1A . I love them and can wear them out going to parties, dinner with fam or simply doing errands.

This set is great for gifts to your sister, loved ones or to a special friend, for only $22.99, the person you give it to will absolutely adore it.

It pays to be a loyal shopper of Victoria’s Secret. I got this set absolutely free for being a PINK ANGEL FOREVER card holder. That is at least $50 worth of savings there.

Looking forward for more freebies in the future from VS. Makes me wanna go back and shop from them even more! Happy me.

Guitar Center Address

I am not sure if there is a guitar center music store near us, but I can always look it up on Google or on their site alone and locate their guitar center address here and hopefully someday, I’ll be able to make a visit in this store with my two girls. I am hoping when they grow a little bigger, they will be interested in playing a musical instrument so the guitar center store will become their favorite store to go.
