Shopping Day with My Mom

Hello everyone!  And welcome to another blog post.

To be honest, this week has been extremely boring and I haven’t done anything exciting.  I have literally just been working and nothing else.  Thankfully, I enjoy working and would rather work than go to school.

But, my mom and I did go shopping the other day!  It was fun and relaxing and it was nice to get away from my apartment and work.

The first thing I was looking for things for my best friends wedding.  Well, bridal shower.  I am her maid of honor (I have no idea what I’m doing) and I am planning the bridal shower.  Now, she told me that she wanted to do teal and foxes.

DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO FIND FOXES RIGHT NOW?

Yes, it is extremely hard to find foxes right now.  I don’t know why, but it is hard.  And then I found these cards!  Aren’t they adorable?

Fox Cards

Next thing was finding fun stuff.  And, I mean clothes.  So mom and I went into Torrid, which is an all plus sized store, and all of their clearance was buy one get one 50% off.  Hooray!  And I ended up spending only $8!  I had a $20 gift card and a $25 Visa card, so I only spent $8 of my own cash.  Awesome!

 

We then moved onto Forever 21.  And their clearance was buy one get one free!  Who could pass that up?  Unfortunately, I didn’t find anything on the clearance shelf.  But, I did find these two shirts and only spent $.75!  I had a $25 gift card and only spent $.75 out of pocket.  And this is why I love gift cards!

Moral of the story, use gift cards and spend less out of pocket for your clothes!  Or whatever you have gift cards for!  Thanks for stopping by!

It was My Birthday!

Well everyone.  It is that time of year where I get to celebrate my birthday yet again!  Yippee!  I turned 22 this year, which means that I am still a baby and still have soooooo much to learn in life.

But, for my birthday this year my mom, Haley, and I went shopping!  Because, who doesn’t like shopping?

So we started shopping at Forever 21.  And as usual, I didn’t buy anything.  Even though they have some of the cutest clothes, I don’t usually buy anything.

We continued through the mall and stopped at a new store called BoxLunch.  When we entered the store, I immediately noticed that it is a lot like Hot Topic but without the goth.  There are a lot of fandom items that would make any fangirl happy!  There is a lot of items for Harry Potter, Disney, Doctor Who, Marvel, DC, and much much more.  But, another reason I like the store is because they give back to community food banks with every purchase.  Who would’ve thought?  So, I bought a mini pop vinyl figure of Hermoine Granger.Present 5

And I bought a Five Nights at Freddy’s mystery box.  There are 12 figures that you could possibly get in the box.  Who doesn’t like a mystery and a surprise?  So, I bought it and got a Toy Bonnie.  I think that he is adorable!

We then made our way to Charming Charlie’s where all of their clearance stuff was an additional percentage off!  So, why wouldn’t you want to buy some?  I bought a feather necklace, a leather and rock bracelet, and a leather tassel keychain.  I bought the keychain specifically to hang my Hermoine pop figure, but now I want to buy the other Harry Potter pop figures to hang with her.

I also bought my first poof!  I love how cute and poofy it is!

Present 3

We then made our way to Home Goods.  And I found a Paris mason jar.  It is big and perfect for keeping…something in.  I don’t know what yet, but I am sure that I will find something to put into it.

Present 2

Finally, we made our way to Walmart where I purchased a Fitbit!  I bought the Fitbit Alta and couldn’t be happier with my purchase.  I like wearing it and seeing how many steps I take and how many calories I have burned.  It’s awesome!

Present 7

And, I also received a Paris tote from my family!  Isn’t it cute?

Present 4

So, yeah.  That’s what I did for my birthday.  Not super exciting, but I did have a good day!  It was nice to spend time with my mom and sister and do some shopping.  I hope you all have a good rest of your day!

Fabulous Finds and Fashions-Dressing Haley

Hello everyone!  This week is a little different because I was at my parents house and had a little bit of fun.

So, Haley woke up and was complaining that she didn’t know what to wear.  So, I jokingly said that I was going to dress her.  And that is exactly what I did.

Do you know how hard it is to dress someone who’s closet consists of 99% black clothing?  Very hard.

But, I found an outfit that didn’t completely consist of black.  And here it is!

Full Look

So, it consists of a lot of color!  And it looks so good on her.  I dressed Haley in a white pair of Faded Glory shorts with a turquoise tank top under a Rock and Republic black tank top.  See…I added some black to the outfit!

Up Close

I added a Forever 21 layered necklace to add to the neckline.  I love the complexity of the necklace to add something to the look.  It makes a great statement with the outfit and adds something else to a simple outfit.

I finally added a pair of Mossimo Vans style shoes with Aztec print.  This was the only part of the outfit with print, but it brought the whole outfit together.

I hope that you like the outfit I made for Haley.  I thought that it all came out beautifully and maybe she will actually wear it instead of just black!

Corner News-March 26, 2016

Hello!  And welcome to another edition of the Corner News.  It is getting close to the end of spring break (can it last another two months?) and the weather is changing.

Since Easter is tomorrow, I am sharing what I am wearing.  I purchased this coral Forever 21 dress back in November from the clearance rack.  I love the accents on the straps and that there are pockets.  I can’t wait to actually wear it for an occasion and not have it just sit in my closet.

Second thing on the docket: since Zoella has turned into mom’s dog (boo hoo), I have adopted another dog.  I had my eye on my dog, Karli, since she entered the shelter back in October of 2014.  I thought that she would be adopted right away, but she sat at VAH until February of 2016, when I adopted her.  I take her to work everyday and have a lot of fun living with her.  She is such a goof and can be a brat, but I love her all the same.

Here is Karli, wearing bunny ears and a boa for the Easter pictures at work.  Doesn’t she look adorable?

And, I also found the cutest dog bed for her. Not only is it better than the bed that I made for her (which was two pillows that I sewed a pillowcase around) and it even matches my room.  Karli enjoys the new bed much more that the original bed.

Well, that is it.  This has been another edition of the Corner News.  I hope you enjoyed it and I can’t wait to see you next week!

Posh N Sip Party! How I Got a Friend Started in PoshMark

Hello everyone!  I am here to plug an app that I have been using and it is great!  (By the way, this isn’t sponsored in any way, I just really like the app).  If you want to clear out your closet of clothes that you don’t want anymore and make a little money doing it, I suggest you use PoshMark.

PoshMark is an app that has been around for about 5 years.  It is like Ebay, but for anything fashion.  Clothes, shoes, jewelry, purses, make-up: you name it, it is probably there.  Everything is new or gently used and the app makes it very easy to sell your items and ship them to fellow poshers.

So, I hosted my first Posh N Sip on March 24th.  It is a party where you get together with your friends and family and help them get their closets started and help them make some extra money.  I invited quite a few people, but because of circumstances, I only had one guest.

I gave Bekah the rundown of how the app works.  I explained how to post items, how to make your pictures look good, and how to make sure that your items are seen by more people.  Here we were, both working on some items to sell!

Bekah

I love the white blanket that I use as my backdrop.  Bekah was using a pretty piece of fabric as her backdrop to make sure all her pictures have some similarity.

Here are the items I posted in my closet!

I have a Forever 21 shirt on top, a Mudd shirt on the bottom, and Out Jeans.  I hope they sell soon and can be better in someone else’s closet.

If you are interested in PoshMark, it is free and very easy to use.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask away and I will answer them as best as I can.  If you have a PoshMark account and are looking for more closets to follow check out my closet, @2smallofacloset, and Bekah’s closet, @bek21.
