Shop Til I Drop

27 Nov

I’ve become quite the shopper lately. I LOVE shopping, and I used to shop pretty much every weekend when I was in high school…however, I also bought cheaper clothes back then! Lately, though, I’ve found myself shopping more frequently than I have in a while…and buying expensive, name-brand items. On sale, of course. I keep thinking about how I would love to work in the fashion industry…even though I’m in law school and will obviously end up with a more structured and probably less exciting job…haha. At least it will probably pay better…which is good, considering my shopping habits! ;)

Even though I’ve been spending (way too much) money, I’ve managed to find some great deals:

Rock and Republic Berlin Skinny Jeans from bluefly.com…originally $228, I paid $86. Unfortunately, the sale isn’t quite as good as it was when I bought them…I think they’re currently $115.

Walter by Walter Baker Sequin Top in Gunmetal…originally $228, I paid $39 (total, including shipping) from beyondtherack.com. I check a list of designer sale websites daily, and I had been looking for a racerback sequin tank for a while, so I was glad I found this one. It ended up being cheaper than similar tops in NY&Co. and Express…and (hopefully) is better quality!

And the best for last: I FINALLY got my Garmin Forerunner 405! I found it on Amazon.com for $194…which I think is a steal, considering the suggested retail price of over $300. I’ve been wanting a 405 for a while now (since I’ve been relying on Nike+ for WAY too long!), and I decided to go ahead and buy instead of waiting for Christmas in case it wasn’t on sale then.

So I spent quite a bit of money in the past week…but if nothing else, at least I found some great deals on things that I have been on the lookout for! Has anyone else found any great deals lately? Any Black Friday deals?!

Life As I Know It

2 Nov

Here’s a few pictures to show what’s been going on lately : )

Went to the mountains to pick apples and tour wineries…perfect Fall day :)

Spent the day visiting historic places and hiking near the river on Fall break :)

Went to a Ke$ha, 3OH!3, and hellogoodbye concert…Um, that was interesting. 3OH!3 is the bomb…and Ke$ha sure does have some flamboyant followers…that’s all I’m gonna say about that.

My best friend got married…and I was in her wedding :) The entire wedding weekend was amazing and the ceremony & reception were so gorgeous!

I ran the Wicked 10k in Virginia Beach…and PR’d :) 49:57! I’ll take it ;)

Anything exciting going on in your life?!
