My Little Post-Christmas Haul!

Hello My Beauties!

I hope you all doing well? Yes? That’s awesome! I’m excited to be getting back into my schedule and posting again! Miss y’all 🙂

I uploaded a Youtube video of my “small” Post-Christmas haul, check it out here! But why would I keep all of the fun from you studious blog readers? That would just be mean! So I took some photos of the items that I bought and got really excited about writing this post. Let’s do this, shall we?

STORES: Wet Seal, XXI Forever, Francesca’s, White Barn, and Aerie.

White Barn

I’ve never been inside of this place, but I really wanted to by candles for my (growing) collection! I’ve been really into scented ones lately and I thought that it would be nice to get a couple more for my room. After rummaging around Bath and Body Works for a while, I decided that I might find something in White Barn, the store attached to B&BW. At first I thought it was going to be really boring, but then I found these two that I really liked and they were INCREDIBLY cheap because of the sales going on!

Aerie

I always have to go to Aerie whenever I go to a mall that has the store! Since I have SO many of their bras I went for something different, like these party-penguin pajama bottoms! They are so soft and adorable, plus they have pockets! How could a girl refuse?!

I also bought one bra (oops!). I’ve really been loving these non-paded bralettes. They’re really comfortable and can be worn under anything. Plus, if they peek out from the sides of a shirt, they look stylish, so there aren’t any worries in that department!

Francesca’s

I never go into Francesca’s. I’m not sure why, their clothes are just slightly more than I would like to spend and I subconsciously avoid it so that I don’t waste all of my money. But on this shopping trip I broke down and went straight for the clearance section, where I found this little gem that used to be $45, then was marked down to $25, which was then marked down to $15! Now that’s what I call smart shopping… or a miracle. It is slightly large, but the way that it drapes makes the size not really matter.

Wet Seal

I also rarely go into Wet Seal, but the one in this mall seemed very different than the one we have here so my friend and I decided to go. Even though I only bought one thing (I only found one thing that I liked), it was also on clearance and I got it for $10! It really fits my style and I can’t wait till I get to wear it!

XXI Forever

Finally, we went to XXI Forever. I still don’t know the difference between Forever 21 and XXI Forever, so if you know COMMENT BELOW! Anyways, I bought two things, and reluctantly leaved behind five other items because of my lack of cash. In the end I chose a set of TWO rings (the middle pearl one slides out from the two bands) and I bought a more quirky cat pullover because who doesn’t want one of those?! It’s really soft and I think it will go with a lot of other things.

Well thank ya for reading, it’s been fun! Look out for my January Interview, I’m excited for it! Also give a big round of applause to my lovely model Lady who so graciously showed some of the tops for you since I was too lazy to do it myself!

Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks,

6 Stocking Stuffers For Under $10

Hello My Beauties!

I completely understand, the search for inexpensive Stocking Stuffers is a hard one! Even finding a cute little present for a friend without breaking your bank is tricky. So, if you want the best gift idea, or just a last minute buy, look no further than this blog post!

Bath and Body Works Mini Candles

If you ever want a great little gift idea for the holiday season, I would first go to Bath and Body Works! They have great scents that are very inexpensive. I included the minis because, even though they are slightly over $10, you can get a full line of products for a low cost.

Forever 21 Jewelry

If you are looking for a great piece of jewelry that looks a lot more expensive than it actually is, go to Forever 21! They have all different sorts of earrings, necklaces, and rings ranging from $4-10!

Fuzzy Socks

In my book you can never go wrong with fuzzy socks. Whether they are used around the house or at night with lotion, these socks are a girls best friend this winter! I have seen some animal ones at Old Navy and Bath and Body Works as well, but honestly fuzzy socks are pretty universal. Go to any clothing/fragrance store and I bet you that you will find a great pair for a low cost!

Kate Moss Lipstick

Now this is my personal favorite brand of lipstick, but any drugstore kind will be perfect! I love Rimmel London’s Kate Moss (as I have rambled about many times before) for many, many reasons. But the best thing is that they last and are very pigmented, so there is no worries when going out for a holiday dinner with the family! These were $6 each and definitely worth the money.

Pajama Pants

Old Navy is having a great sale right now where all pajama pants are $6! I have a couple of pairs that I love and being able to get them for that cheap is so great! So if you are shopping for a gift or something a little more intimate (if you know what I mean 😉) then head over and get a pair!
