Maurices mini haul

I love the store called Maurices! They carry up to a size 24. Before my weight loss I was wear a size 2/3 or 20/22 in this store. Since then, I’m not 100% sure of the size I wear but I decided to try them out anyway.

Here is what I picked

Not only did I score a great deal but if the items fit I will be estatic! I went with a 7/8 in the jeans because they have a lot of stretch in them and I like the more fitted style. I picked up a large in the star top because I have bigger arms and I thought the medium might be too snug on them.

Have you ever shopped before? If so, what did you purchase?

Simply Be

Just before the new year I made a few purchases. One of which came from a store called Simply Be. Simply Be carries sizes 6 and up. 

With the losing of weight, I needed a few items. I couldn’t leave my mom out so I got her a few things as well. I absolutely love this store. I’ve been shopping there when I was a size 20/22 and now that I’m a size 6/8, I’m lucky to be able to still shop there!

Here is my haul:

I was able to score some amazing items for a very low price due to an awesome sale! I’ve been wanting the gabi fresh line of lingerie for a while but couldn’t afford them on my budget. This sale made it possible! Hopefully they will fit since I had to get a 12 in the panties. The rose gold heels were to die for. I’m usually a size 10 in shoes but that size was out of stock. I ended up going with a size 8EEE which I believe is a triple wide shoe. They fit perfectly. I also picked up a pair of Chloe jeans as I have very few pairs of jeans that I can wear now. The velvet jeans, Shapewear and sneakers are for my mom.

Have you ever shopped If so, what did you pick up?

New Year, New Plans

With start of the year I can see how neglectful I’ve been to my blog I intend to lay out everything and revamp my blog. I want to concentrate on getting more people to use my blog as inspiration of some sorts. I’m not 100% sure how I’m going to do the reorganization but  I’m sure it will come to me. I thank everyone whom has visited the blog and left comments. Hopefully I can turn my blog around into some better and be more consistent with content.

MAC Giambattista Valli Collection

MAC seriously dropped the ball on this launch. The collection went live at about 9am EST but it moved so slow that it was literally impossible to purchase. Now I'm no stranger to any kind of limited edition release so I understand there will be a higher than normal amount of traffic but this was ridiculous!!

After 2 hours (yes TWO!) I didn't know whether my order had gone through because the site kept timing out. I tried the regular check out and paying with paypal. To avoid a double order I called customer service. The wait time wasn't surprisingly long (about 7 min) to speak with a representative. She checked to make sure no order had been placed but since I couldn't order myself I wanted to place an order with her. She then dropped the bomb on me and said they couldn't place orders because their system was down! Whet!!!!?!!!!?

I really wanted this collection because I tried for another hour to place my order. Finally at around noon, it went through!!!

I ordered all of the lipsticks and the gloss. My total with tax and free shipping was around $117. 

I will update my post with swatches when the lipsticks arrive!

Did you purchase anything from this collection?
