What's new today?

I bought a black mascara from Chanel and a lipstick from Mac. I got freebies to try on, which includes 1 pc Laura Mercier lipgloss and Clinique lipgloss also and a few samples of Prada and Balenciaga perfumes, both bottle of perfumes can be worn 3 or 4 times depending on the amount you sprayed, the smaller the amount you put on the longer it runs out.
Would you believe I only paid $9.22 including taxes, okay the total bill was $46 + tax, I had $40 Nordstrom note so its like shopping for less with a much more in hand. I'm not kidding, that's why I posted the receipt so you know I am not bluffing! Isn't it sweet?

My Shopping Lists

I am a confessed shopaholic.  I can also be a frugal shopper if I want to and yes, I also splurge at times.  I am lucky because my husband supports me with all my shopping frenzies.  I know what my limits are that is why when there are things that I want and I like, I always look for them at the sale racks.

I have not shopped to the max for the fast few years because I spend my time and energy making sure that I get the highest possible grade that I can while I was studying.  Now that I have succeeded my goal and before I embark into another journey (working as a nurse), I give myself a well deserve time of shopping and relaxation. 

On my shopping list for Christmas are some tops and pants for myself.  I needed to upgrade my wardrobe.  I need some comfortable jeans that I can wear this winter.  To complete my winter wardrobe I need some vests that will give me enough warmth.  Winter here in New Jersey can really be cold and having a vest will be necessary for me.

With all the things that I want to buy for myself this Christmas, I think I need to start shopping early so that I have time to look for the best deals.

New boots for moi

Here it is!! Presenting to you my chocolate colored UGG Boots, believe me this baby is so comfy and easy to slip on.
Before you guys kill me for spending a hefty amount for UGG boots, let me tell how how cold it is here in my state of residence. Right now our temperature is 39 degrees Fahrenheit and take note it is still mid November, winter season isn't there yet, how much more it gets cold when it is already in the full blast winter with blizzards and snow all over the town. I guess if I'll be buried on ice,  promise nobody would notice because I will not smell. Or maybe I'm just not too practical when it comes to spending. Ugh! what the heck, I'm not gonna be able to take my fortune to my grave, that if I have fortune--err a fortune cookie maybe!

To make my shopping complete I also bought a black boots to pair for my dress clothes to church. I thought I needed a dress boots when I was shopping because I felt bad for my UGG boots which I am sure I'm going to use this all the time. So, this boots would be its company and they'll be both happy serving me this cold months.

the best thing in life is LIBRE (free)

I got couple of good deals this week I mean really good ones from Victoria Secret. For the record I only wear this label for my undergarments because I just love it, blame my husband who enrolled me their store. Anyhow, here's what I'm talking about.

I'm telling you this lacy thong is free from Victoria secret which is priced at $12.50 each. I got their monthly giveaway card-- a $10 off on any bra purchase and free lacy thong which is no purchase necessary, meaning I could have claimed the thong by itself no ifs and buts. Yet, I still opted to use my $10 for a new pair of bra and 3 pcs panties.

The bra above is priced @ $42 less $10 so its final cost is only $32 not bad! Since I got it in red I may as well buy a pair of panties to match its red and black trim, they ripped me of with the underwear, if I only buy one I'll have to pay $12.50 each but if I'll get 3 pairs it will only costs $30, do the math! that's $7.50 savings for all 3! Okay, I went overboard! When I paid my purchases, I got a free weekend tote! You read it right it's FREE!

This tote costs $80! Although I spent $62 for all the items I got, I received a total of $110 savings and free stuff combined, who can beat that? And remember no sales tax for shoes and clothing here in New Jersey, so as the freebies I got. Who said my shopping habit is very costly?

shopping galore!

I went shopping this week at Cherry Hill, its a bit of a ride hmmm around 5 miles lol! I can't count how many traffic lights to get there, that means its kinda far of a ride hahahah considering Deptford Mall which is just 2 traffic lights from my house, let's say not even a mile. Ask my brother-in-law David, he knew what I am talking about.

I just bought couple of tops and 2 sweaters, I'll post my shopping finds when I feel like doing it for the meantime I'll share you my shopping companions.

Meet our official photographer....
LOL we have to start her shopping lessons early so it wouldn't be a hard job for her when she grows up.

we have to stop by the fountain as per our photographer's request, heheheh she's a good sport believe me!

Purple shoes

Okay, okay I shopped today and found a very dainty purple shoes. Actually, my main reason driving to the mall on a rainy day is to pay my Nordstrom credit card. I know I used credit card when I shop but I see to it that when the bill comes I have to pay the entire bill to avoid financing charges. That's the secret! I never had any instance wherein my credit cards were paid on installment, it's a big no-no in my vocabulary, call me conceited but that's how I was trained by my ever dutiful and loving husband who supported my shopping trips.

Back to my purple shoes, initially I didn't plan on buying this but at the back of my head I was thinking of my purple dresses at home which I haven't have a shoes that matches them, I wore neutral shoe color if I need to wear any of them dresses. So, this time is my chance of buying my first purple shoes. Had this shoes sold at its retail price I wouldn't consider buying because it is way too much. Why? Because I might wear this only few times, it is not practical and besides the weather is getting cooler each day so dainty shoes goes to the back of the closet until warm season comes.

As you can see, it is made by bebe, one of my favorite brands. I can't believe Nordstrom carry this brand in their store because I haven't seen them in the store during my previous shopping trips. I'm suspecting that other branches carry those but not at Cherry Hill Mall. Oh! by the way they are on sale so maybe("just maybe") they forwarded their left over items from the other stores because there were only 2 stores having women's items on sale this week, that figures right?
