I Consider It A Birthday Present To Myself!

My new shoes that I ordered at Aeropostale last week came yesterday. I tell you, it might be the cutest shoes that I have ever bought! It is so much cuter in person than in the picture! Oh gosh I am in love with them and I can't wait to wear them out some time! I consider it as a birthday present to myself since my birthday is just around the corner!

Anyway, I took a couple of shots of my new shoes and I'm pretty sure that not everybody would find it cute since we all have different taste. I love the print especially! I am just such a big fan of animal prints!

This year, I am into flat shoes like boat shoes, loafers, skimmers and seems like I just couldn't get enough of them! When I saw these shoes on Aeropostale on sale for $14.99, I knew I had to have it. $14.99 was actually still high for me but the original price was almost $40 and I got an additional 30% off, so I only had to pay a little over $10 for the pair and I consider it a great deal! Don't you think?

Because Women Could Never Have Enough Shoes!

And yes I am one of those women who could never have enough shoes! I don't know if I should be ashamed of it or not. I guess it depends on where the money is coming from! I guarantee you that it's not coming out of my husband's pocket nor from somebody else! So I guess it's alright! And even if I have debts from my shopping spree sometimes online, I am still able to pay for it a month from my own pocket. Although I am just a stay at home mom, I do have little ways to earn money online and one of that is through blogging!

So anyhow, speaking of shoes, below are the newest pair that I bought at Aeropostale last week. It was on sale for $14.99 and with an extra 30% off they were offering last week, I got these shoes for a little over $10! Not bad for a CL by Laundry brand! I am so excited for them to come and it's on its way here!

Lost About Three Pounds In One Day!

I started this Juice diet the other night and basically lost 3 lbs in one day. After not having anything to eat that night except for the juice which was a homemade V8 juice, I lost 3 lbs the next day! My starting weight was 122 lbs and the next day I weighed 119.4 lbs. My goal weight is 103 lbs, I still have about 116 lbs to go!

Anyway, I haven't weighed myself today, I'm hoping that I've lost more weight. A lot of people have told me that I really don't need to lose weight that I look good the way I am now. But the thing is, this is not the weight where I feel good or comfortable of myself! I am not trying to lose weight just to look good but I want to feel comfortable as well. 103 lbs was where I was so comfortable about myself before I had my second child and hopefully I will be able to get down to my goal weight!

Orders From Forever21 And Aeropostale Are Here!

My nail polish that I bought at Forever21 came yesterday and the clothes from Aeropostale came today! I haven't had the chance to look at the clothes because I was out basically all day today and when I got back home I got busy with things that needed to be done.

As far as the nail polish goes, it was my first time to try out Forever21's Love & Beauty nail polish and I am happy to say that I love all the colors that I got! Even my stepdaughter tried it out and she loved it! I painted my nails yesterday but didn't last long at all. So I am gonna have to find time to paint them again and make sure that it will last longer than yesterday did!

Early Birthday Present From Victoria's Secret!

So nice of Victoria's Secret to send an early birthday present for me. My birthday is not until next month but I really appreciate them sending it early this year! Last year, they somehow forgot to send my birthday present and I had to send them a message so I would get my present from them, so I guess they are trying to make up this year by sending it really early! 

Anyway, the semi-annual sale is still going on, I guess this would be the perfect time to take advantage of it now that I have this $10 off plus they are also having an additional 25% off clearance only today. So I better head on over there before it gets over, so I can save more money!

What's Blooming In The Garden?

What's blooming in the garden? Below are some of the flowers that are currently blooming in my garden. It is always a pleasure to see these vibrant and beautiful flowers! All the hard work that I put into it is paying off!

Pink and white Asiatic Lily. This wasn't supposed to grow again. When I bought it at Sam's last year, it said that this was an Annual Lily. I am not really that surprise that it grew again for I have never seen a Lily that never come back every year!

Wildberry Coneflower

Another Asiatic Lily in different color...

I just love this Cally Lily! Notice the water drops in each side! Love this shot!

Two Strikes This Week!

No matter how much I put it through my head, or how much effort I make not to spend any money on junk, somehow, I just keep slipping and doing it anyway! That's two strikes this week! The first purchase wasn't really much. Less than $13 at Forever21 on those nail polish. I was all geared all with them as I was browsing online! And of course what do you think happened after I had purchased them? Uhmm, well, let's just say that I was cussing myself for doing such a stupid thing! And I was telling myself that it's not gonna happen again!

Well, sure enough this morning, I received an email from Aeropostale. I should've have known not to go to their site. I got blinded with their up to 70% off clearance. Their camis as low as $3.99 each and t-shirt as low as $4.99 and that did it! I started adding items in my cart and ended up purchasing those items which cost me right about at $40 including tax and shipping of course! So again, right after I did it, I was beating myself again!

I really don't know what I'm gonna do about this compulsive spending! I can't seem to control myself when it comes to shopping and that's why I have debts that I am worrying to pay! It's not something that I couldn't fix but if I continue with my way right now, I will be in a much deeper hole that I wouldn't be crawl out! I know I am blogging about but it doesn't mean that I am proud of it! No I am NOT! I am just expressing my feelings of disgust! I don't have anybody else to tell it to and it's like this is the only place where I can express what I feel inside! This really SUCKS!!!!

Great Deals On Nail Polish At Forever21!

{images are from Forever21.com}
I just ordered these nail polish at Forever21.com a few minutes ago. They are on sale for 99 cents each which I thought is a great bargain. I paid less than $13 for 6 nail polish and that's including shipping and tax. Although I don't always paint my nails on regular basis for I don't see the point of doing it regularly since I am a one busy mom of two hyperactive boys plus the chores around the house that needs to be done. It is pointless sometimes to make my nails pretty when I know very well that it won't stay long. But I do make an exception sometimes when I feel like it!

So anyway, I am really excited for these nail polish to come. All the ones that I have right now are who knows how many years old and needs to be thrown away for sure! No need for me to keep them when there are fresh new ones that are coming my way! ;)

Drooling Over These Sandals!

{images are not mine}
My addictive side is kicking in and just drooling over these beautiful and colorful sandals! Fortunately, my size in the bottom sandal is out of stock or I would have been so tempted to buy it! I really like its style and of course the color. The top sandal although I am not so crazy with its style, I do love its color, my size is in stock but I am not willing to pay $16.99 for it! 

The prices are not really much, the bottom one is only $14.99 but by the time you add the shipping it will be a whole lot for me! If it would have been a free shipping, I would probably consider buying the top sandal! Oh well, I guess it's a good thing that the one that I really like best is out of stock in my size for I don't really need to be spending money anyway! I still have debts to worry about!

I Would Never Get Tired Of Animal-Prints!

Here is another outfit that I wore from last Sunday to church. As you can see this outfit consist of an animal-print skirt which by the way came from a thrift store, I paired it with a peplum blazer from G by Guess, inner top is an Apt. 9 brand lace ruffled-front top also came from a thrift store, criss-cross wedge sandals, stretch bracelet and of course my new quilted shoulder bag, all three from Forever21!

I am just so obsessed with animal-prints, well of course it depends on how it looks on the clothing because I've seen some that I did not really like but I just can get enough mof animal-print and would never get tired of it! How about you guys, do you have some kind of obsessions? I guess everybody does!

Cigar Shops

Some people prefers to smoke cigars than cigarettes. I always wonder if there is a difference between the two, I mean I know there is a difference when it comes to appearance but I am talking about the amount of nicotine. There's probably the same amount in the two which doesn't really matter how much because it is bad for your health even when use in moderation!

Anyhow, cigars are very easy to access these days, you can easily find so many cigar shops online. You don't even have to go to the store, you can easily shop in the comfort of your own home, all you have to do is type and click!

For those of you who don't know, the Semi-Annual Sale is going on right now at Victoria's Secret online. It actually started on the 29th of May. I was very excited about it, I have been planning on buying a bunch of their lipsticks and some make-ups but when the actual day came, I didn't buy a single thing! They don't have that much of a selection this time compare to their previous annual sales. But anyway, if you have not check their site yet, head on now for this sale won't last long!
