Crazy Awesome Jack Rogers Deal!

Guys...I have been wanting a pair of Jack Rogers for absolutely ever, I just didn't want to pay $100 for a pair of sandals (no matter how cute they are)

I seriously got a pair of Jack Rogers for $40!!  Not even kidding!!!

Look at that deal!!!!

So here is the stitch. Living social:
is currently running a GREAT deal. You can buy a $50 dollar gift card to Neiman Marcus last call for only $25!!!

So you sign up on living social, you buy the deal, and once you buy you go under "my vouchers" on living social to get the promo code!

Then you go onto :
(Neiman Marcus's clearance site)

type in "jack rogers" and on the top in the "filter" area I recommend checking off your size so the pairs that are left in your size only show up.

Then, you add your promo code to the cart and HAPPY SHOPPING!

My pair was $59 so when I subtracted the $50 gift card it was only $9.40! $31.4 in total! Then shipping of course. Awesome deal!!!

I suggest acting VERY quickly before the word gets out, I have a feeling they will sell out quick.

Also I got mine when they were having the 40% sale...I think they are still on 30% off sale so still great deal!!!

Let me know if you have any questions,

Spring Break Haul 2014

Oh my goodness Spring Break!  How I have been waiting for you!  I didn't really have like a destination spring break.  I went o visit my Grandma in South Carolina with my sisters and my mom.  We ate out way too much and shopped till we dropped!

So I am just going to go through what all I got:

Carolina Pottery- This store is only in the southeast but it is a pretty cool store.  It has all kinds of home decor items, floral items, and also some pretty cute little boutiquey items

So I got the cutest cooler bag in gray and turquoise chevron.  This bag is HUGE!  I will be able to fit everything I ever need to keep cool.  Perfect for picnics or bringing groceries home.

I also picked up these adorable chalkboard labels.  I have been looking for these for a while and I have some containers that are screaming for labels...but now I can have some happy containers :)

Thrift Stores- So ya'll know I am a little bit of a thriftaholic (who am I kidding I am a thriftaholic) anyways here are some fruits of my thrifting at my grandmas

So these were such an AWESOME deal!  I love these little headbands to wear when I am working out or just to wear when I am having a lazy day.  Anyway these headbands were from Target brand new and still had the clearance tag from Target on them $4.24 (on clearance) and I got them for $0.50 each!!!  Seriously awesome!  They all have silicone on them to help them stay in place.

 I picked up this pair of Old Navy distressed capris.  These are such a nice fit and I only have like 2 pairs of capris.  I love how they are distressed and the rolled look on the bottom.

 I also picked up this Lucky Brand flowy floral top.  It is super light and so comfy.  I can't wait to wear it this spring and summer and Lucky Brand, ya'll know that's one of my favorites!

 Ross- Do I even need to put anything here...I love Ross (2nd to T.J. Maxx) but still I love seeing their deals!
I got a new pair of shades, brand Hot Kiss and they were only $5.99, they are cute and comfy so I just went for it.

I also got some undies....but hey I'm a lady and can't show them online (but they are the nice nowshow material so go get some at Ross)

T.J. Maxx- here's some stuff I picked up at my Grandma's store

I have heard about Travelos from Youtube for a while and I got a really cheap one from eBay but all the perfume dried up in it and it didn't work.  This one is so much better and it was on clearance!  These are great for traveling with your favorite perfumes but you don't have to carry that big bottle around and risk breaking it.  

Oh and I went to my T.J. Maxx a few days after I got home and found them there for $3 on clearance (go figure) but I  went ahead and bought two more.

I also picked up essie brand top coat and it was only $4.99, I was needing a new top coat and figured I would try this one out.

Hobby Lobby- so I am obsessed with Hobby Lobby but my closest one is like an hour away :(  My Grandma has one close so of course we went there.  I was looking for wedding decorations and also looking for floral stems for my bouquet (more details on this later)

I did find this adorable little wood plaque that I am planning on using as decor at our wedding on a little table.

I also got two easels that we are going to use to display pictures on a table.

So that's my Spring Break haul hope you enjoyed it!  Let me know if you have scored any deals lately!

Thrifting Finds

So ya'll know that I am a little obsessed with thrifting...seriously why pay more when you can get it for CHEAP??

Here is my latest thrifting haul:

Don't you love they say "Lucky You"

3. Loose short sleeve striped sweater $3.75
    So cute and perfect for spring!  I think it will be adorable with a statement necklace!

4. Forever 21 feather tshirt $3.75
    Love Forever 21 and this shirt is comfy and I love the little rhinestones on it...only shrank a little in the wash so we shall see what I can do

5. Black lace henley shirt $3.75
    Loose and comfy, love the lace detail and I am in love with henleys!

6.  Probably my most favorite purchase...look at this dress!!!!  ADORABLE flower detail on the top of the        gray/navy dress...for $5 you can't beat this!!!  It reminds me of Anthropologie!

7. Gap polka dotted drawstring blouse $3.75
    So cute and summery and perfectly preppy!

and now for the stuff:

1. Paper Towel holder $2
    Getting married this summer and moving into a new house so I have been on the lookout for one of these and at $2 you can't beat that!

2. Elizabethtown DVD $1.50
    Saw this movie years ago and can't remember it...but at less than $2 it can go in my movie collection...I mean can you go wrong with Kirsten Dunst and Orlando Bloom???

3. Soup mug $0.25
    My family uses these all the time and I wanted to get some for my own...look at how cute!!

4. Random find but I like it...R monogram tumbler...not sure what the rings are all about but you know me and personalization (seriously I have a problem)  $0.25

5. And another one of my favorite finds this beautiful metallic Nine West handbag that I got for                         $3.50...seriously??  I am absolutely in love with this bag!  It holds everything, has two zip pockets on the front, a zip pocket on the inside, two slips and the whole thing zips!  It also has the most adorable leopard     print inside.  The color is one of those that looks different in different lights, sometimes its silver, gold, rose gold.  I think it is going to be a perfect summer bag.

I got all this awesome adorable things for around $30!!  Great thrifting adventure!
