Summer Splurge! Fabletics and Shoedazzle

Well, when summer hits and I am staring at my phone for an hour, ads of summer deals show up on my feed. I gave in and spent money but what I got was a heck of a steal! I hope you are all excited that the summer has some pretty great sales going on, including semi-annual sales at various retail stores. Let’s get started! *this is not a sponsored post*

Before I fully go into everything, I have been walking in the mornings. I am getting up at 6:30am and walking for about half an hour or so to just get my day started and to be healthier. The Amna Tunic and Clara Sportsbra are shown as their full price in my receipt but when I was about to check it, it showed up 50% off. To get free shipping, they offered various pieces. I purchased the Amna Tunic because I only have cotton tank tops and I would like something that is more breathable. I found this top to be just that and it looks so cute! I am excited to get it in the mail soon. The Clara Sportsbra is just cute in general and I actually bought it so I could wear it as a crop top. I love the pattern and can’t wait to wear it since it should be breathable for this summer!

The Charleston set, above, is the reason I decided to take the leap. Like I mentioned, I wanted more gym clothes and I have been committed to walking so early. Fabletics had a sale on outfits for $19. I can’t honestly, remember if this was on sale for $19 or $24? I decided to get out of my comfort zone with the really cool prints. All of my current workout clothes are, for the most part, solid colors so they aren’t that exciting.

Holy rompers! A lot of the items on Shoedazzle were 2 for $24. Originally, I saw a pair of shoes for only $12 or so that I debated on purchasing because I would like a cute pair of graduation heels. Anyway, I saw rompers on sale as well and nearly flipped. I am a huge romper person. I love the comfort of rompers and know that it can be awkward for some to use the bathroom. I really wanted to step outside of my comfort and norm when it comes to rompers. I will say that my collection is pretty great so far for rompers but the blue one is the most similar to what I have already. I just wanted a color that I didn’t have too many of. The mint romper is one that looks extremely comfortable and the one I am probably most excited for. I got the black one because I needed a fourth item to get the 2 for $24 deal. The red jumpsuit is right up my alley because I have pants that are just like the bottoms of a couple pairs of pants I own.

That is my haul! I actually want to know if any of you use Hello Fresh or Blue Apron, leave it in the comments. I am on the fence and don’t know if it is worth it. I am also a college student, as most of you know, so keep that in mind when you tell me.

Lush Haul!

img_2624

Well folks, I finally made a UK purchase from Lush and had it ship all the way here, to North Carolina. The process? So easy that you would be surprised. I compared prices while shopping and would you know, the Frozen bath bomb is $8.95 in the states and only £4.25 which translates to $5.20. It took about a week for my items to get here. I am kind of bummed that there wasn’t a way to track my package. However, alls well that ends well because my order arrived safe and sound.

All of these items were packaged naked, except for the soap, which is a great way to be eco-friendly. The potato starch popcorn dissolve in water or will degrade over time. I love that Lush thinks about these things and really make it the most biodegradable company that I have purchased from.

Now that we got the business out of the way, here is a list of what I got:
(L to R)
Titsy Totsy bath bomb
Autumn Leaf bath bomb
Star Dust bath bomb
Intergalactic bath bomb
Milky Bar soap
Sakura bath bomb

The package smells extremely fresh and as I am typing it, my office space definitely smells like a Lush store. I highly recommend buying from Lush. I will be doing reviews as I try these wonderful smelling products.

What should I get next time I order from Lush?

ShopaHAULic 36!! | HUGE H&M SALE

Hello ShopaHAULics, Tiffany here and I have never been the biggest fan of H&M, I love their quality because it is much better than Forever 21, but their clothing doesn’t scream me. I am more of a Forever 21 style kind of girl and my sister is definitely H&M. My sister forwarded an email that had rompers/jumpsuits on sale and I freaked. I haven’t had a good romper in years, I have three from Forever 21, but I only really love one of them like crazy.

Romper | $10.00 | I just wanted a new romper and the total that my sister and I were accumulating was getting really high…like over $100.00 so I opted to remove the white romper that looked just like this. I mean, at least we got free shipping? It has lace, which is my jam, and it looks really cute and effortless!

Black Shorts | $7.00 | Jersey shorts that are super cute and flared. I couldn’t resist. I love jersey for the most part because it is light and keeps you cool during the crazy hot summer.

Floral Shorts | $10.00 | High-waisted floral shorts? Yes, please! I know in the picture on the website that the model shows her belly button, but I am hoping that since I am so short that these will work out.

Sunglasses | $5.00 | I couldn’t find these online anymore. I fell in love with the reflective blue lenses, it reminds me of the ocean and the clear frame is a nice touch. These do sit kind of funny over my sunglasses but they are too cute and I don’t mind it too much.

Bracelet-Ring | $5.00 | I love my mermaid-like one and when I saw this I fell in love some more. I bought this in a large so it would fit on my middle finger. I like my rings to be on my middle finger if they have a bracelet attached, but sometimes that is really hard to find.

Necklace | $4.00 | If this is a legit constellation, please tell me what it is! I couldn’t find any information on this but it looked too cool not to buy. I don’t think that it is a constellation or else they would have said it. Let me know in the comments if you know!

Alright, that is what I bought! I checked the website some more and there are new additions into the sale section!

ShopaHAULic 34!!

Hello ShopaHAULics, Tiffany here and I finally compiled this most recently haul with visits to Kohl’s, Forever 21, Belk, Sephora, and Ulta! Everything I bought was affordable or on sale! Let’s get started!

I love, love, love these earrings!  They have a cuff aspect to them which is really cool and they definitely remind me of wings. I think that I might wear these when I am feeling a little boho chic or just fancy. $5.40 and oh, so nice!

I did a close up of two of the items in the left hand corner from the group shot in the bottom right hand corner. The giant sock bun is awesome and only $1.90! If you don’t want such a large one you can buy the regular size for $0.10 less. The earring cuff and stud was only $3.90. The two mint pieces that I am in love with, especially the chunky chain one, were on sale for $1.99. I love that I found the smaller one so that I can plan to pair them together. I also decided to get some makeup sponges since I have just fallen in love with them. The single one is $3.90 and the multi-pack is $6.90. The bow is my sister’s and I bought it for $1.90.

My birthday gifts! Ulta and Sephora give you free gifts every year to you as long as you are a card member. I like that they give you a gift that works for everyone. Ulta gave me an eyeshadow palette worth $12 which is great! This also gives them some self-promotion since I normally skip their products. NARS comes with two lip products with a satin finish, a bold red and a wearable pink.

I don’t own many sweaters so when I saw this houndstooth sweater, I fell in love. I am really trying to cut back on my clothing purchases so I put it back even though it was on sale for $7.00 and an extra 50% off which meant it was only going to be $3.50. I decided to put it on and it has such a warm interior that is a very soft fleece. Belk has great sales sometimes and it really all depends on which Belk you go to. The size I got was a petite medium which is pretty big but there wasn’t a smaller one. I like that it is oversize since I can wear leggings and boots but still look put together. I think I will add a statement necklace or put my hair up and add those earrings I just got from Kohl’s.

I hope that you all enjoyed this haul!

ShopaHAULic 33!!

Hello ShopaHAULics, Tiffany and I kind of have an obsession…want to hear it? I love The Little Mermaid. Okay, that was not really a fact you didn’t know. I recently used my Hot Topic cash this past weekend and I am so happy to share with you what I got.Before I do, let me explain what Hot Topic cash is…for a period of time Hot Topic promotes earning Hot Topic cash for every $30 you spend. Each cash is worth $15 off of $30, or $30 off of $60, it depends on what you buy when the promotion is happening. Well, I had three of them, I bought a lot but they were definitely presents, I swear! So, I had 3 $15 off of $30 cash vouchers. In total I had to spend $90 and that would lead me to hit $45.I bought all of this myself and there is a shirt that isn’t featured which would be the one that I bought my brother, it is the t-rex that has the trash picker upper things and says “I am unstoppable now” or something similar.ALSO, before anyone freaks out about how much I spent, I earned the cash so I could purchase this stuff. I know that not all of it is on sale and I only bought things that I knew I would enjoy. I always hunt for a deal and when I get to safe $45 on a $90 purchase you bet I am going to utilize this! Now, let’s get into this haul!2015/01/img_0602.jpg

 

50% off! These were definitely expensive at $39.50 but half of that and they came out to be around $19.

$8.50 I have way too many Ariels mugs…do I care? Nope. I would regret it later.

Nautical ring, $5.00 and clearance, woop! The butterfly earrings are for my sister, only $3.00!

I have had my eye on this for about a month and became ecstatic when they had a good amount of them. A really cool laser cut pocket watch with an iconic moment as the face of the necklace! $14.50

2015/01/img_0608.jpg

 

No judgments, alright? I love Rarity from My Little Pony and there is not enough merch out there for her, so I had to buy it! Not to mention she is a pre-release and a vinyl. $18.50

$1.99 and it is the cheapest thing and possibly the most meaningful because “I’m a mermaid” describes me too well.
