Some Recent Deals

10 Jan

Well, I started off the year saying I wasn’t going to shop much. I’d say I’ve done so-s0 at sticking with that goal…haha. First of all, the Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale started last Tuesday, and I definitely did some damage there! But the Semi-Annual Sale is pretty much the only time I buy things like yoga pants, PINK sweats, new bras, etc. because the deals are SO good…why would I go buy the same things for full price when I can wait until January or July?!

 

 

 

 

 

Some deals I found:

L to R: Boyfriend Pant, $25 online (I paid less than $20 in-store though!); VS PINK Multi-Way Bra, $26.99 online; T-Shirt Demi Bra, $15.99 online

 

I also finally got a watch similar to one I’ve been eyeing for a while. I really wanted the Michael Kors version, but there are so many look-a-likes at much better prices, so I decided to go cheap on this one. I rarely wear a watch to begin with, so I’m trying to get used to having one on. Not to mention, I had $20 in Amazon Rewards….and the watch was $19.99! So I paid $4.95 total (for shipping) and basically got a free watch!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The one on the left is the one I bought for $19.99 on Amazon.com, and the Michael Kors Runway watch is on the right (On sale for $169 on Amazon.com!)…sure, its not exactly like the “authentic” MK watch, but its pretty similar at a much lower price!

 

Also, if you’ve never heard of Groupon…you should definitely check it out! I recently signed up to get the Groupon Deal of the Day for my area and I’ve seen some really great deals so far. They have 50% offers to restaurants pretty often, so if you like to go out to dinner…there ya go. I personally had been on the lookout for a Hot Yoga deal, since its typically so expensive! After checking Groupon and a few other sites with daily deals pretty regularly, I FINALLY found one! I have never been to this studio, but its one of the premier locations in the area, so I’ll give it a shot :)

 

 

 

 

I paid $40 for 10 classes…the retail price was $120, so I saved $80! Well worth it for yoga classes…they’re so pricey!

 

I tend to check out designer clothing discount sites pretty often, as mentioned in this post…even though I’m trying not to spend much money, I had been on the lookout for a pair of black skinny jeans for a while now. I kept seeing different types on Ruelala, Hautelook, and Beyond the Rack, but at $85+, I decided to wait around for a better deal. I logged onto Bluefly the other day, and lo and behold, I found a pair of James Jeans on sale for $54.39! I couldn’t pass that up, so I finally ordered some black skinnies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t have anything else I’m on the lookout for at the moment (which is a good thing! haha), so I’m going to try and stop spending $$$! I really need to start saving up if I’m going to go to Europe this summer! ;)

What deals have you found lately?

17. Gifts for Men

17 Dec

1. A nice quality watch is always a good gift…a watch is just an essential, and a classic-looking watch goes with almost any outfit!

 

 

 

 

 

Michael Kors Round Stainless Steel Chronograph Watch, $180.00

 

2. A magazine subscription…based on his interests. If he likes golf, subscribe to Golf Digest. If he likes current events and business, try Newsweek. If he just likes sports in general, try ESPN The Magazine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Video Games…apparently all men have an inner child. Enough said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

L to R: Madden 11, $38; Call of Duty, $50; XBOX Kinect, $149 (Let’s face it, the Kinect might be more interesting to you than your guy. Even better reason to buy it…a little gift for yourself! ha

 

Shopping for men can be really easy, or really difficult. There are so many things you CAN buy for men, like clothing, shoes, accessories, and colognes because most men don’t mind other people doing their shopping for them! However, getting jeans and socks year after year can get old…quickly. So even if you plan to buy clothing for the guy (because SOMEbody has help him stay in style…ha ha), throw in a “fun” gift as well. And hopefully he will reciprocate the idea and give you a “fun” gift too. You can always hope ;)

4. MY Wish List

4 Dec

It took me such a long time to come up with a Christmas list this year! I didn’t think I had too many things that I wanted, so I made a note on my computer and added things as I thought of them. Some of the items are more practical than anything, but there are a few exciting things on the list!

1. Michael Kors White Runway Watch, $218

 

 

 

 

 

2. Chi Classic Tourmaline Ceramic 1″ Flat Iron, $99

 

 

 

 

 

3. Steve Madden Olympicc Blush Patent Pumps, $54

 

 

 

 

 

4. BlackBerry Car Charger (Told you some of it was “practical” and boring…haha), $9

 

 

 

 

 

5. Canon Powershot SX30 IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera, $369

 

 

 

 

 

6. Nike Zoom Structure Triax +14 Running Shoes, $100

 

 

 

 

I don’t know how much, if any, items that I will get off this list. Honestly, the older I’ve gotten, the less I WANT. When I was a child, Christmas presents were a huge deal to me, but now, I honestly prefer to shop for gifts to give rather than receive! Not saying that it wouldn’t be nice to get some of these items…haha ;)

What is on your Christmas list???

Confessions of a Shopaholic

20 Oct

Okay, I admit it. I LOVE to shop. Like if I’m in a terrible mood, all I have to do is swipe that plastic card and its like instant gratification. Do I have a problem? Maybe. But I think we all (and by all, I mean 99.9% women and 0.01% men) get that great feeling after we spend $$$. Now, a few HOURS after the purchase(s) we made, we may begin to regret how much money we spent. I know I do that a lot. haha. But then I try on my new clothes, wear my new shoes, or carry my new purse…and all is better again. I know, I know…in my last post I just talked about how labels and status symbols aren’t important. But most of us desire to have pretty things, and typically those “pretty things” cost a pretty penny. That’s where designer sales come in. I am quite addicted to my main main, Marc Jacobs, as well as my (2nd) main man Michael Kors…and plenty more great designers. You get the picture…haha :) So I’ve gotten hooked on a few websites that have huge designer clothing sales (among other sales…on vacations and furniture and bedding…the list goes on). I am sure a lot of you have already heard of these lovely sites and are already members, but in case you’re not I though I would share my invites with all of you…because you have to be “invited” in order to get in on the sales!

Here ya go!

HauteLook

Beyond The Rack

RueLaLa

Gilt Groupe

I’ve found some seriously great deals on designer clothing on these sites and I check them pretty religiously in order to see all the newest sales! Does anyone know of any other good websites like these that have good deals?!  If you tell me, I can totally keep it a secret! ;) Happy Shopping!

Green with Envy?

18 Oct

I love my life…everything about it. I’m blessed to have such a wonderful family who would do anything for me. I have a warm, safe, comfortable home to live in (free of charge I might add…perks of living at home with the ‘rents while I’m in law school!). I have a vehicle to drive, a part time job as a fitness instructor (a life goal of mine, actually), and I am grateful to be in law school. I have nice things (okay, I’ll admit…I’m a shopaholic), and I get to do lots of fun things with family and friends most of the time…when I’m not doing law school work. Ha ha.

So why do I always look for something more? Why do I always see what someone else has and think, hmm, I really wish that were me? I think that envious feeling is an innate human quality (or maybe that isn’t the right word…?) but I think we all experience it. I find myself sometimes wishing I was driving that new BMW or buying an entire wardrobe of Michael Kors and  Marc Jacobs clothing (they’re my DREAM TEAM). I dislike that feeling so much, because sometimes it makes me feel like I’ll never get there, to that level. Of wealth. Of success. Of happiness. But wait…did I basically just say that money and labels equal happiness??? Unfortunately, I’ve found myself thinking that from time to time. Its pretty sad that I catch myself thinking that status equals happiness. I’ve been working on changing that view…by reminding myself of all the things that really make me happy. A weekend road trip with my family, walking on the beach at night, running outside on a cool day, relaxing on the couch with my boyfriend after a long day, going out with friends, photography, unwinding with yoga…the list goes on. Yes, some of those things do cost money, but the benefits of being a part of all of those things far outweighs the costs that are incurred to do them. I’m getting older, but I still have a lot to learn. I’d like to think that I look at life from a fairly mature standpoint nowadays…I know that when I was 17, 18, even 19, I had a difficult time seeing that there are greater things in life than mere status symbols like money and labels.

That was pretty deep, I know…haha. I have just been doing my best to always look at the joy in the small things in life, because they tend to mean the most. I’m still learning to appreciate a lot of those things, but one thing I do know is that the loving and caring nature of my family and friends is what makes my world spin around, and money can’t buy that :)
