The Famous Semi-Annual Sale At Victoria's Secret!

{Image from Victoriassecret.com)
The famous Semi-Annual Sale at Victoria's Secret is now going on online! For those of you who didn't know, head on to their site before all their good deals run out of stock! This is what I have been waiting for to spend the $100 Secret Reward Card that I got! I already did my shopping the other day and one of the items that I bought was a pair of boots! I have never thought that it would be possible for me to buy boots from Victoria's Secret because of how expensive their shoes are! The boots were $99 original price, they were on sale for $39.99 which to me is still expensive but thanks to my Secret Reward Card which I used to purchase a real gift card, I was able to buy an expensive boots! 

Anyway, I just received an email from VS this morning that my items were shipped! I cannot wait to receive my package! I am very excited about it! The only thing I am worried about is, the size of the boots were half size smaller for it is the only size left that is close to my size which is 8. I own 7.5 shoes, I just hope that the boots will fit me just fine! I'll find out when it comes so wish me luck!

Christmas Presents For Myself

I may not have any gifts under the tree to open this coming Christmas but it's okay since I've already got presents for myself. I had been buying a lot of stuff from Victoria's Secret when they were offering Secret Reward Cards before Black Friday. I got 3 different bras, a free tote valued at $75, a free mini fragrance set which made a nice little Christmas present to somebody, make-up kit plus one of my 5 Secret Reward Cards that I accumulated was $100 worth! How's that for a nice little present? I don't know about you all, but I couldn't ask for anything better!

Besides from all that goodies from Victoria's Secret, I also gifted myself some new sweaters from Forever21! It was so hard to resist when they were offering additional 50% off  of clearance items on Black Friday, so I took advantage of it! I thought I was done for sure but then I saw this pretty coat the other day and I tried to ignore it but I just couldn't! So there's additional pressie for myself! There's no regret at all. I can't wait to receive it in the mail. 

I've bought so many coats at Forever21 that I resold online and so far, I have been very satisfied with the quality and so did my customers. So I am very confident that this new coat that I bought will be as good as the ones that I bought before or perhaps better! Anyway, below is the coat that I am anticipating for!

Photographing Christmas!

I love taking pictures of our Christmas decors, ornaments that I set up in the house. I think I am not the only one who likes doing it. I love all the ornaments that I have this year even though I wasn't able to put all of them on our tiny Christmas tree! Hopefully next year, we will be able to use our 7ft Christmas tree if I can move out some of the unused things in here!

Anyway, below are some of the ornaments and decors that you will on our Christmas tree and in the house..all pictures are SOOC or straight out of the camera. The only thing I did are resizing the pictures to upload it a lot faster, so I'd say, it probably lessen the quality of the pictures but I still love them!

Two Victoria's Secret Undies For $1.30

I just bought two Victoria's Secret undies online and only paid $1.30 out of my pocket because I used two $10 Secret Reward Cards. As you may all know already, you can only use one Secret Reward card per transaction, so I had to do two checkouts to buy the 2 undies using secret reward cards!

I've earned 5 Secret Reward Cards, all 4 are worth $10 each and 1 is worth $100. I've given one of the $10 cards to my friend and I still had 3 left. I just hated the thought of not using them or let them expired on December 20 for I spent some money to earn those cards! So I decided to spend two of the cards but without having to spend more than how much the card is worth. I went to their clearance and looked the cheapest item they have and found the panties for $3.99 each! I added it in my cart, checked out using the secret reward card and paid 65 cents for each underwear including shipping and tax! 

I could have probably got more if I had used them in the store but unfortunately, the nearest VS store is about 45 minutes drive and I was not about to go through all that trouble just to use those secret reward cards! Anyway, I still have one $10 left, I am saving it so I can combine it when my real gift card comes, then I will have $10 more to shop! ;)

$100 Secret Reward Card!

Yesterday was such an exciting day for me. If you're a big fan of Victoria's Secret chances are you're aware that they had been giving out free Secret Reward Cards with a $10 purchase which could be worth $10, $25, $50, $100, $250 and $500 since before Thanksgiving and yesterday was the starting day to redeem it. I accumulated 5 Secret Reward Cards which 3 were already in my possession and the other 2 are coming in the mail probably next week! I checked my 3 Secret Reward Cards yesterday and couldn't believe with my eyes that one of them is worth $100! Talking about feeling lucky! I didn't see that coming at all! All those times that I got Secret Reward Cards from them, they've always been worth $10! I would have been very happy even if I got $25 but $100 is way, way better!

I wanted to wait for their Semi-Annual sale this coming January so I can get a lot for my money but then my fried told me that all reward cards expires December 20! So what I did, instead of spending my secret reward card before it expires, I bought a real VS gift card with it since gift card does not have any expiration date and I can keep it as long as forever! LOL! So my VS gift card is on its way here! I cannot wait for the Semi-Annual sale and see how much stuff I can get with Secret Reward Card!

Anyway, how about you guys, do you have any Secret Reward Cards? Have you checked it yet? If not, head onto Victoria's Secret website to find out how much is/are yours worth!

Victoria's Secret Sent Me 3 Secret Reward Cards Instead Of 2!

I feel really lucky for Victoria's Secret sent me 3 Secret Reward Cards with my order instead of just 2! They had a promotion going on last week that if you buy any PINK items, you would get 2 Secret Reward Cards! They also had another promotion going on of free underwear with a purchase of a bra plus it will be shipped for free! So without any hesitation, I took that deal, I needed a new bra anyway, plus I got a free underwear with it and 2 Secret Reward Cards.

I was really surprised of how fast they shipped my order! When I opened the package, I noticed that there were 3 Secret Reward Cards instead of 2 which really surprised me! I am sure it was put there by accident. I can always keep it, I don't think VS would miss it but deep inside something is telling me to do the right thing which is to call VS customer service or send them an email and ask them what to do with it. If they'll let me have it, it would be really great but if not, it's fine as well!

Cheap Jazz Mouthpiece

A quality but affordable product is hard to come by this day. There are some who prefers buying cheap stuff because it's the only thing they can afford and there are those who are willing to pay high price just to get the top quality brand! But it is very well possible to get both just like if you are looking for a jazz mouthpiece. A cheap vandoren jazz mouthpiece at wwbw will provide you both, affordability and quality! And like I said, this doesn't happen often! So if you are on the hunt for one, might as well check out the site and if you like what you see, better buy it now before it's gone!

2 Secret Reward Cards Coming My Way!

{Image from victoriassecret.com}

I feel lucky that I checked Victoria's Secret's online store yesterday. They had this promo going on only for that day of 2 free Secret Reward cards if you purchase PINK items! I was trying to find an item less than $10 to buy together with the gift card that I was buying for someone for Christmas. But I didn't find any that cost less than 10 bucks!

One of my friends on FB mentioned about another promotion of free panty plus free shipping if you purchase a bra. I decided to take that deal instead even though I would pay more! It cost me a little over $45 for a $25 GC, a PINK bandeau and a panty including shipping and tax plus I got 2 Secret Reward cards guaranteed to be worth $10 each! If I get lucky, it could be worth up to $500! Wewwww that would be very nice if I get that amount! Hehe, it's free to dream!

Addiction Is Hard To Break!

Addiction comes in different forms.  In my opinion, when you are hook on something that is hard for you to break that habit, then you addicted to it and therefore an addict! It could be drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, sex, gambling and even shopping! Drugs, cigarettes and alcohol are the most common addictions that people get hooked to so easily! People who are an addict are usually in denial that they are one. They don't see it for themselves but usually the family are the ones suffering from it.

There are many rehabilitation center available for methadone addiction for example, to help these people before it is too late. It would be hard at first, but with encouraging words and moral support, they will get through it!!

Wearing My New Boots For The First Time!

Last Sunday was the first time that I got to wear my new boots and I tell you they are very comfortable just like the shoes that I bought from the site before! They have the most comfortable shoes/sandals that I have ever worn in my entire life! Usually new shoes always hurt my feet but not the shoes that I bought from this site!

Anyway, I know it is kinda hard to see the boots in the picture, but that is the outfit that I wore. It was the perfect timing wearing them on Sunday to go to church for we have this beliefs in the Philippines that if you wear your new shoes to church, that it will last for a long time! I don't really know if it is true or not but hopefully these boots will last for a long time since I wore them the first time to church! Hehe!

Second Boots Came In The Mail Today!

You are all probably wondering how many boots did I buy or how many more do I need! LOL! This is the last one this year for sure! So the second boots that I ordered on Wetseal online came today which is pictured above! I decided to buy them because I wanted to have something warm that are easy and quick to put my feet in when I just need to go outside to take my son to the bus stop or go to the grocery store and it's freezing outside. Many times I've taken my son to the bus stop and outside temperature was below freezing and all I can grab quick was a pair of flip flops, talking about freezing!!! My feet and toes immediately numbs from being so cold!

Anyway, I am not really crazy about the style but like I said, it's just something for me to wear around the house or when I go out for a quick errand! I do love the animal print though! I also saved on these boots! When I bought it a week ago, Wetseal was having a 40% off entire site plus free shipping with a minimum purchase of $15, so these boots were a good deal! I've tried them on already and they feel so warm and comfortable!!

New Boots Were Shipped Fast!

I was really surprised when my new boots came almost a week early than the expected date. I was supposed to get them next Monday, but they arrived in the mail yesterday! It is the fastest shipment from the website where I bought them from. Usually it takes over a week for my items to come every time I order from them using standard shipping but this time it was shipped very fast!

Anyhow, as I was expecting, these boots are just beautiful in person! I cannot wait to wear them pretty soon! These are just perfect on cold days like what we've been having lately but I won't be wearing it on snow days for I am sure it will wear it off fast!!

New Boots For Fall And Winter

{Image NOT MINE!}

{Image NOT MINE!}

Right now, there are so many sales going on for Veteran's Day. These boots pictured above are my latest purchase! They are perfect for Fall and winter! I have been browsing online since a week ago and I found the first boots and immediately fell in love the moment I set my eyes on them. Unfortunately the price was too much and I said to myself that the moment these boots go on sale, I would not hesitate to buy it!

Sure enough, yesterday I was browsing the site again and my eyes got so big when I saw that the boots on sale for about half price for Veteran's Day! I was actually contemplating for a few minutes if I should buy it or not! Well, let me just say this, the boots are too pretty for me to just pass up on it, so I BOUGHT IT! No regrets at all for I still saved some money. The total with shipping and tax was still less than the original price, so I am happy with it and couldn't wait to receive them in the mail which by the way, it's already been shipped and will be here next week!

The second boots I bought yesterday from a different store. I also saved some money on them. The site was offering 40% plus free shipping of $15 minimum order. The boots and a belt cost me less than $18 including tax plus I get a cashback because I always use Ebates every time I purchase online! 

If you don't have Ebates account yet, it is very simple to make one, plus you'll get a free giftcard of your choice when you sign up and make your first purchase through the site. All you have to do is search the store on their site and if you see it there, you will be able to see how much cashback you'll get and then just click and earn your money back!

He Loves His New FILA Shoes!

 I bought my oldest son these MLB FILA brand tennis shoes on Amazon last week and paid only a little over $13 for it! I felt lucky that I bought it right then because the next day the price had gone up to its original price which is $34+! The shipping was free because I had over $35 worth of items in my cart. 

Recently, Amazon just changed their minimum purchase to get a free shipping from $25 to $35. I was buying a new battery for my laptop and decided to look for some new shoes for my son to get a free shipping and I was fortunate enough to have come across these shoes which was on sale for that day!

The shoes that I bought him at Walmart just before school started this year were falling apart and he needed a new one bad! I did not want to buy him another cheapo at Walmart that would only last a few months so I decided to browse on Amazon for well-built branded shoes! I was willing to pay up to $30+ just to get a good and well-known brand but luckily I found one for less than $15 unexpectedly!

I just love shopping on Amazon! You can definitely find great deals there and they also have wide selections from different sellers! I bought so much stuff on there these past few weeks and so far, I have been very satisfied on each items that came in the mail!

Free Stuff From Victoria's Secret

A full-size mist and a Pink mini cheekster are what I got at Victoria's Secret for free! Not bad at all considering, those would cost you almost $30 if bought regular price! This is one of the things that I love about Victoria's Secret, they are very generous to their customers when it comes to giving out free stuff. Unlike other stores, you don't have to buy anything to get a free item! Plus they accept multiple coupons too! I love Victoria's Secret and I'm a loyal customer!

Coupons, Coupons And More Coupons!

I have never had this much coupons saved at one time. Coupons above are from 3 different stores, one $10 off of $25 or more purchase at JCPenney and multiple coupons from Victori'as Secret and Bath and Body Works! I always like to go to JCpenney and check their sales items. Hopefully, they have some good sales going on tomorrow. I am hunting my kids some new winter clothes. I cannot spend a whole lot so this $10 off will definitely come in handy if I find some good deals!

Anyway, what I am looking forward is to go to Victoria's Secret for I have 2 guaranteed free stuff without having to purchase anything from them. A free mini cheekaster and a full-size VS mist! Gosh I just love this store! I also have 2 $10 off a bra coupons, I don't have any intentions of using them, but I will still bring them tomorrow just in case!

And lastly, lots of coupons from Bath and Body Works. I just recently ordered from them and sent me lots of coupons with my orders online. Not guaranteed that I'll be using any of these coupons. They require minimum purchase and I only have limited amount to spend. So I'll have to see what they'll have in store tomorrow!

Beautiful Carolina Blue Skies

These pictures were taken about a month ago at the North Carolina State Mountain Fair! It was such a lovely day that day, the perfect day to be riding scary and fun rides! The mountain views made the scary rides looks appealing until you get on it! LOL!

Anyway, here are few of the rides that we rode that day! In the background you will the beautiful Carolina Blue skies which I think made my pictures look so good!
My mother-in-law and I on the Pirate Ship Ride! This would be my last time riding this thing! As you can see in the picture, my expression says it all! Yes I was terrified just to be honest but I was very impressed with my mother-in-law of how calm she was considering she was on oxygen and almost 70 years old! I really applaud her for having the guts to ride this ride! It felt like my stomach was turning inside out! LOL!

My oldest son on a bungee jump! He loved this one and wanted to do it again but it cost $7 so maybe next year again! :)

The Flying Circus was my oldest son's favorite ride there. He was scared at first to ride but after convincing him to try it, he wanted to do it again and again, so he ended up riding it three times that day! He had a blast!

Intelligent Quartz™ Fly-Back Chronograph Timex Watch For Free!

When I posted about I might be getting a free Timex watch several weeks ago, I was a little skeptical if it's really true. I mean nobody would just give you a free stuff these days especially if it cost over $100 and no string attach! But lo and behold the watch came earlier than expected. Instead of waiting 6 to 8 weeks like it said, the watch arrived in the mail probably in one week! When I saw that it was from Timex, I couldn't be any happier and excited! I picked out a men's watch so I could give it to my husband for his birthday this coming Halloween and that watch just came in time! My husband would be very surprised when he sees this watch for it is truly beautiful! And take note, I got it for FREE! The price tag on this watch on Timex website is $165! 

Please note that this is not a review for Timex. This is just my way of showing my appreciation for giving me a beautiful and expensive piece of watch for free! So you can click the link above to see the real price on it and see that I am not lying about it! 

Anyway, here are more pictures below that I took right after I opened it! Don't worry, my husband have not seen it yet! He did see it when I was picking the watch. I showed it to him to see what he'd think about the watch but I didn't tell him that I was getting it for him and his comment was "That's a good-looking watch right there!". So I know for fact that he is going to love it!
A little note from Timex

By the way, the conversation started on twitter. Timex said that they liked my style and that's why they wanted to give me a free watch. If you want to follow them (I don't know if they are still giving away a free watch), you can follow them @TimexStyleWatch on twitter! Like I mentioned above this is not a review! I am just thankful to them for giving me this beautiful watch!

My First Purchase At Bath And Body Works

 Last week was my first time purchasing something from Bath And Body Works. I've heard so many good things about it. I heard that they are as good as Victoria's Secret or maybe even better! So I thought I would give them a try since I received some coupons from them. 

Anyway, above are what I got for a little over $40 including shipping and tax, 5 mists and one lotion, a total of 6 items. I asked one of my friends if $40+ was a good price for 6 items, she thought it was still expensive which I thought it was too. But oh well, I guess it's okay since it was my first time purchasing from them. I am not familiar with them yet. I don't even know if they smell good!

You see, I don't have a sense of smell. You are all probably wondering why I am buying these stuff? Well, they are not intended for me! I am planning to include them in the balik-bayan box to be sent to my family in the Philippines, who knows when! My way of knowing if something smells good or not is, I let my husband smell it for me! LOL! So I got a job for him awaiting over here! LOL!

Anyhow, I received my package today and they included so many coupons. I guess they figured that I'll be enticed to buy from them again with all these coupons. I am not saying that I'm not going to even though I think they are more pricey than VS. I'll just have to see how much I can get and how much I would pay using any of these coupons!

Prayers In Times Of Calamity

I am asking for a little favor for those who are stopping by and reading this blog to take a few minutes of your time and say a little pray for my fellow Filipinos in the Philippines who were affected by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake last night! I found this prayer on the internet, The prayer, from Pinoy Catholic, states:

Oh God our Father:
In faith we acknowledge Your paternal care over us, Your sons, daughters and children. In hope we trust in Your divine providence of giving us wisdom and courage as we face the challenges in life. In love we invoke Your help and guidance during these difficult days of death and destruction in our dear country.
Our is a prayer of thanksgiving for once again reminding us that ours is an imperfect world, that heaven is not on earth, and that nature every now and then tells us not to abuse her. Ours too is a prayer of repentance for calling upon You when we are in need and desperation but forgetting You in favourable times and pleasing occasions. Ours as well is a prayer of petition as we say:
Grant eternal peace to those who lost their lives. Embrace the children who died in their innocence. Help those who are hurt and cure those who are sick.
Encourage those who suffer the destruction of their homes and properties, and to once again stand up and rebuild their future.
Bless all those who extend their helping hands to those in need of food, shelter and clothing, who share their time, talents and resources with others.
Inspire more people to be men and women for their neighbors, convinced that the more they are for others, the taller they stand before you.
Spare us please from other natural disasters and devastations if this be according to Your will and for our own spiritual good and growth.
All your thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated! Thank you!

I Lost My Lens Cap

{image not mine}

I lost my lens cap a week ago. I don't know how it happened though because it was just right there beside me when I was taking picture of my little one inside the house. I didn't notice it missing until I was in the car and saw that my lens cap wasn't attach to my lens. I did not go back inside the house to get it for I was in a hurry and I was confident that it was inside the house. But then when I came home later that day and my husband mentioned about it (he is very strict about not putting the cap on my lens by the way), it's nowhere to be found! I even looked outside and in the car and it's not there!

Well, my husband was more upset about it than me! LOL! He told me to get a new replacement cap right away! I didn't do it right away but I bought it the next day on Amazon, it will be here tomorrow. He also suggested that I get a string that they call a "keeper" so if I use my camera, my cap would still be attach to it and I won't have to worry about losing my lens cap again.
{image not mine}
And while I was shopping on Amazon, I also bought a new case for my IPod since the last one that I bought didn't really last that long! Thank goodness for the cases or my IPod would have been broken a long time ago the way my little one had thrown it many times! There was even one time that he put it in the toilet and I thought for sure that it would break, but thank goodness it didn't! 

Anyway, it will be a while for my IPod case to come, I didn't realize that the seller was from outside the US but it's okay, I have my old case that keeps my IPod safe from those tiny hands! Plus I guess it's worth waiting since I didn't pay much for it compared to the last one and it is very cute! Here it is below...
{image not  mine}

{image not mine}
I so love the color combination, pink, black and zebra-print! Of course I have to have me an animal-print! LOL! Aside from it's great color combinations, I also love that it would cover my IPod fully, it will protect it so much better than the old ones that I have/had!

I Am May be Getting A Timex Watch For Free Worth $165!

I love getting free stuff! Who doesn't anyway? Especially if it is something expensive! That doesn't happen often! Usually if it's free, you get the most basic! But not this time!  I am may be getting a free Timex Watch worth $165! Well, I don't consider it for sure yet since I do not have it in my possession but the person that contacted me about it said that it will come in the mail within 6-8 weeks! So it is really not for certain yet! But I am really excited about it, can you tell? LOL!

Anyway, how I came across getting this free watch was through twitter! I've been posting my picture on there wearing somewhat fashionable outfit I should say and this certain someone kept liking my tweets and sending me messages. I believe it could be a representative from Timex. The other day, I received a direct message that they could help me get an arm candy to go with my outfit and to send them a direct message and so I did. I received a reply just this morning, telling me that they're giving me a free watch! They listed that style numbers that they are giving away and I have to choose one!

When I checked it out on their website, gosh I was blown away! Those watches ranges from $45 to $165! I am still kind of disbelief! Is it really true that they are willing to give me a free watch and no strings attached? I was expecting that they would want me to tweet about the free watch as a trade but they said no strings attached! Well, if I really get the watch in 6-8 weeks, the least that I can do would be tweeting about it and rest assured that I will be blogging about it too!

Anyway, below are the top 2 watches that I really liked!
{image not mine}
 Above is a Ladies Dress Chronograph Watch which is priced at $95! This was my first pick but then I remembered that my husband's birthday is coming up and this would be a great opportunity to get him something nice and expensive and wouldn't cost me a penny! So I decided to forget this one and get a men's watch for my husband. I found out later when my friend mentioned that this one was Out Of Stock actually! So no regrets and disappointments! LOL!
{Image not mine!}
Above is what I decided to get! It is a Men's Intelligent Quartz Fly-Back Chronograph which is priced at $165! The name alone sounds so fancy already! LOL! I actually showed it to my husband but didn't tell him that it is for him and he said that it is a very nice looking watch! Now I know for sure that he is going to love it! But since this won't come on his birthday, I still have to find him something on his special day. This would be a great post-birthday gift surprise! Hopefully, I will really get it for I am looking forward to give it to my husband! Crossing my fingers!

Aeropostale Has Another Satisfied Customer In Me

I bought some clothes at Aeropostale.com a week ago which cost me $55 including shipping and tax. I have been trying hard not to spend that much money online. If I do find some good deals, I try not to spend over $20! But last week was kinda a different story! I couldn't refuse the additional 40% off they were offering on  clearance! I've avoided the 25% and 30 % off they offered a week before and good thing that I didn't get tempted for I got a much better deal last week with the 40% off!

I was so thrilled to see the blazer that I've been eying for weeks and weeks was still available! I also bought 2 jeggings and 2 t-shirts that I intended to buy for my sisters. But when my packaged arrived few days ago, I am debating if I'm giving the t-shirts to them or keeping it for myself! They are so cute and fits perfect! Gosh I am so bad! LOL!

Anyway, Aeropostale has another satisfied customer in me for I love everything that I bought especially the blazer and the jeggings! It was my first time to ever buy jeans from them and I tell you, the material is very soft, plus the colors are great and fits perfect on me! I won't dare buying their jeans when it's not on sale and without additional discounts because they are almost $50 a piece! Yikes! I just couldn't afford that! But thanks to the sale plus 40% off, I got the jeans for $9 each! And the blazer, originally priced at $74+, it was on sale for $26+ and with 40% off, I got it for a little over $16! I couldn't be any happier with my purchase last week ! Although I paid more than usual, I still consider it a bargain! :)

It's About Time To Clean The Carpet

I noticed that other day while I was vacuuming our carpet floor how some part of it is discoloring. I realized that it's about time to clean the carpet once again! But just the thought of how much work is involve in doing it, makes me feel so worn out already! So I checked out carpet cleaners from concord nc to see how much they charge to clean carpets. I may have to pay a little extra and have professionals do it than doing it myself!

My Haul From The Mall Yesterday

So thankful to my better half for dropping me at the mall yesterday. I got to redeemed my coupons from Victoria's Secret. My haul from the mall yesterday I consider good deals. I got a free full-size mist from VS and I also bought a new PINK bra and only paid $12.50 for it, original priced at $32. I used $20 worth of coupons, a $10 reward and a $10 off a bra purchase! That to me is worth going to the mall! Not only that, I also found a cute hi-lo top at JCPenney for less than $5!

I was only there for about an hour because we were on time schedule but that was plenty enough time for me to check some of my favorite stores. I also bought some pants for my youngest son at JCPenney. So my trip to the mall yesterday only cost me less than $30 which to me is pretty good!

Anyhow, below are my hauls yesterday. Pants for my son is not included in the picture...

My free full-size VS mist and PINK leopard-print bra from Victoria's Secret...
Love this hi-lo sheer top that I bought at JCPenney yesterday! I also love the Royal Blue color!

More Coupons From Victoria's Secret

Last week, I received my $10 reward card from Victoria's Secret and this week I received more coupons from them. Another free full-size VS Fantasies Mist and a $10 off a bra coupon. There was actually another coupon for a free 3-piece cosmetic bag I think, but in order to get it is you have to spend $75 or more which to me is a lot of money to spend just to get them, not worth it to me so I threw it away without hesitation because I won't be using it.

Anyway, last month I also received a coupon for a free full-size VS mist also but I didn't get to redeem it for it expired on me not too long ago! I really hated that it happened because that would have been a nice little addition to the balik-bayan box that I am planning to send to my family in the Philippines some time next year! But it's a little too late now! I'll have to make sure that this one won't have the same fate! To me, this is worth driving to the mall! I don't go out often, so I always try to take advantage if I'm going to the mall to check out all my favorite stores because it is a long drive from where we live! I'm hoping I will be able to go to the mall this Sunday or some time next week!

GoodNites Underwear For Bedwetting!

This post brought to you by GoodNites. All opinions are 100% mine.
I know how humiliating it is for a child to wet the bed. I've experienced it firsthand when I was a kid myself! My siblings and I were so bad in wetting the bed, but it was something that we didn't have control of. It always happened in the middle of the night while we were asleep. We never knew it until the next morning and rest assured, our parents; especially our mother, would always chew our butt out for doing it! As for punishment, we had to clean the bed and sheets ourselves! As the young kids that we were, it was a very hard punishment!

Anyhow, having two kids of my own now, I now fully understand why our mother got so upset because it is indeed frustrating having to clean up the mess! When my oldest son was experiencing this problem, I tried really hard not to get upset with him for I know how it feels to be scolded over something that is inevitable! I didn't want him to feel helpless and embarassed about it because things like this is normal! The best way to avoid it is by preventing it from happening!

To avoid all that troubles that I experienced with my oldest son, I started using GoodNites underwear for my youngest son! I actually got it for free for participating the 3-day challenge on GoodNites Facebook page! Before I started the GoodNites underwear, he used to wake up several times at night due to a wet diaper that gets soaking wet in his clothes and bed! After using the underwear, he sleeps through the night like a baby should!

The GoodNites underwear are the best underwear to fight against bedwetting because of it's very abosorbent and specially made to protect while lying down! They also come in different designs which any boy or girl would love. I know my youngest son loved his Spider-man design!
Anyway, if you are up for this challenge, visit their facebook page and sign up! You will also get a chance to win weekly prizes!
