Marshalls Sale Haul

 

Well guys, I couldn’t resist! It’s sales time and Marshalls has great deals going on. Marshalls has incredibly insane deals happening and if you want some great deals in your life, definitely check out their stores right now.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Marshalls is one of my favorite places to shop for designer brands at a portion of the price and  I just love their sales.  I got some really good winter/summer things that I’m really excited about.

First thing I got is …

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Price tag: $29.99  Sale: $11.00 

This pair of jeans by 1822 Denim Capri is the most comfortable denim ever. The material is so soft and the cut fits just right where it supposed to. I’m wearing a size 6 and it fits me like a glove.  I love it so much, it makes me wish it’s summer now. Just can’t wait to rock it next summer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Suggested Price: $68.00  Marshalls Price: $29.99  Sale: $24.00 

Ooohh! This Cashmere Infused turtle neck jumper by Jeanne Pierre so soft! Let me tell you this photo doesn’t do it justice. The actual color is a little bit more magenta than what you see on this photo. I love a good comfortable, snuggly and warm turtle neck jumper and was super pleased to have this in my life. It’s super soft and it was around $24.00. This is the most beautiful magenta color. Would make a perfect outfit this holiday season!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Suggested Price: $63.00  Marshalls Retail: $29.99  Sale: $16.00

Moving on, I got this Lauren Ralph Lauren Striped Cotton T-Shirt in the shade Green Mu. Again, very soft and I thought this color would look amazing and really suit my skin tone. It’s so soft, really soft! I got this one in a size M

Winter outfit wouldn’t be complete without an over-sized cardigan. I love love the pattern on these sleeves and appreciate that it has two front pockets to keep hands warm. I’m wearing it today and it’s keeping me snug. I think John & Jenn knitted cardigan is such a win! This one is perfect for me! So nice and warm!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Left: Big Apple Red   Right: Got the Blues for Red

Wrapped in Big Apple Red color nail polish by OPI! Oh yes! These colors are so easy to wear with almost anything. A classic red nails that could never go out of style. I love to wear red nails for the holiday season. There’s something about bold red which I think makes any holiday seasons feel festive and joyful. Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year but for some, it’s also one of the busiest. Between gift buying, food preparing and party attending, you still need to find time to pamper yourself and go ahead and wear a bold red nails.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last but not least, I also picked up a product from South Korea. I’ve tried many charcoal mask before but never on this one. So, I’m really excited for this peel-off mask by Cala! I can’t wait to try it out and will report back later on my blog post. In the meantime, I think they’re having a 20% off Cyber Monday Sales on their website, so go and check them out if you like this brand.

So, if you’re fancy to do some shopping for you or  anyone else, so make sure to follow me on my instagram. I’m posting all the amazing sales and updates.

There are so many to choose from but below are some of my favorites!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Scented Candle Pure Harmony Balance CAD$3.99 – I’ve fallen in love with scented candles over the past few months and this candle jar smells amazing. Because I love trying out new and different scents of candles, I prefer a smaller glass jar where it’s convenient and you could place it wherever you want. Definitely try this scented candle out.

Seriously a style you can wear all day, every day whether it’s around the house or you’re out and about. This style is one that everyone should have in the closet! I love them, and I’m sure you will too! Now on sale for CAD$39.99 at Marshalls.

OStyle Essentials Wild Rose Eyeshadow Palette

As per usual, my haul will not be complete without an eyeshadow palette. Wild Rose Makeup Collection by Style Essentials is probably my ultimate product pick. It’s my first time trying out this cruelty free makeup brand and I’m really happy with the purchase.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You get 12 matte and shimmery eyeshadows with an additional 3 cheek colors for just CAD$9.99 a palette. I love the rich pigmentation.

Playtime lingerie

Last but not least is a lingerie piece that I’ve been meaning to get since last spring. With this hot summer days, I couldn’t deny my love for tank top at this moment. A sexy but practical bralette to wear under any tops this summer. It’s unlined and it’s wireless. Most comfortable bra ever! I want to wear it on a daily basis so I’m definitely going back to pick up another one or two in different colors to match my outfits.

I appreciate the style of a bralette – it provide a reasonable amount of support for small to average busted women. They all come in a few sizes for only CAD$9.99. You really can’t go wrong with this one. Let Playtime Lingerie inspire your inner temptress!

Spring Must Haves – Beauty & Fashion

 

Hey guys! Wanna know what products I’ve been loving and thought you might want to check them out for Spring Must Haves? Then let’s skip the introduction and jump straight into the gist of it. Since we’ve been blessed with such beautiful spring like weather last two weeks, I’ve been out and about shopping at my favorite store. So I picked up a few things that I really like!

Sprung into Spring

Let’s talk about BEAUTY for a starter.

Lancome Veris in Lovve

I’m a Lancome addict and  when I saw this Lancome Vernis In Love Nail Polish at Winners when I went shopping two weekends ago, I was overjoyed to find this hidden gem.

Lancome Nail Polish

I’m loving the formula and the color which I have in the shade Douceur Vanillee. It’s not to thick nor thin, and the color is just amazing. It looks great and classy which I really like. It’s an everyday color that I can wear it the whole time. It stay well and haven’t chip even after day 5.

Douceur Vanille #Lancome

Not to mention the brush applies easily and my nails being fully covered in 2-3 strokes. It’s buildable for a more opaque finishing. For about $19 (CAD) per bottle this worksas good as the Deborah Lippmann nail polish. I’d say it’s on par. You got to try this! It’s really that amazing!

FASHION

Rockport Clog Shoes

Shoes – Well, you see I don’t live near Winners so that days of picking up a few new affordable pieces for my wardrobe at every change of season are over. But whenever I got the chance to shop there, I like to go a little crazy with my shopping spree.

If you know me, then you know I love almost everything leather. I find them to be really durable and long lasting. This especially holds true when it comes to footwear materials. So when I saw this beautiful Red Rockport Clog Sandals, I know I’ve to get it for good measure. No, really I picked this up because they made the most comfortable shoes. I’ve a few pairs in the past and they haven’t let me down. This slip on sandal is easy to wear with almost anything, from denim to hot pants or summer dresses. Well, at least that’s how I’d wear them.

You see, I also wanted to pair it with my red bag as seen below. I feel like I’m going to be wearing this combo for the rest of the year!

This could be the most comfortable sandals ever and I’ve been really loving it!

Lauren Ralph Lauren Corssbag

Bag – when I said I splurge a little on my bag collection. I mean it! One of my mini goal this year is to be a more I guess aware consumer. I used to be someone who if I see something I like, I don’t too much about it and if I can afford it I’ll just buy it but I want to be a shopper where I’m a little more conscious about the environment.  I want to make sure that the things that I’m buying is going to be used for a very long time even if that means I’m paying a higher price tag for it. If it’s something of quality and will last me for a good while, I would rather do that.

Inside Lauren Ralph Lauren bag

So,  picked up this adorable Lauren Ralph Lauren Crossbody Bag that’s red and it’s screaming my name. Regular price tag is for $110 but I’m paying a reduced price at $69.99 which is quite a steal, don’t you think!  It’s of 100% leather material and was made in Indonesia. It’s perfect to wear as a crossbody bag or on the shoulder as shared on my Instagram post. I really love the good compact size of this bag. It can store cellphone, coins, cash and so many other things in it. So many compartments for cards and there’s also a pen holder just in case. They think of everything even to the smallest detail which I truly appreciate.

Closed up look #RalphLauren

It’s like a wallet but with a strap on it and suprisingly roomy on the inside. The long strap is adjustable and I really like the cute heart shape on gold metal zipper and hardware. I’m loving x10 with this crossbody bag.

So those are some of the stuff that’s a must have for Spring. Definitely make sure you check them out. Leave me a comment down below and tell me what products you like me to try this Spring!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and read. You can find me online on my social media and if you’d like to get notification of a new post, you can follow me on my blog post.

Happy shopping!

Blogtober* Dress Up For Fall – Zara & Coach

 

Hello guys! Today’s I’ll be doing a different blog post than my usual beauty makeup haul. It’s going to be a dress up for fall blog post. It’s basically all the clothing and accessories I got from Zara recently. Let me know what you think of this different format in the comment, please.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I ordered them online on Zara website. You can see here my current wardrobe clothing for fall. I always keep it simple and comfortable like stripe top and skirt but I always try to spice them up with a little accessories.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Top

I’m almost always wearing a t-shirt when I’m just hanging around and my latest obsession is this Zara Round-Neck Stripe Top. I also very obsessed with stripes. They’re super comfortable and easy to throw on so that’s a definite must have for me. I like to pull up the sleeves and usually I tuck the front into the front of my skirt. This can also be paired with a denim jeans and a rugged jacket for casual look. It’s nice to wear a soft pop of color when the weather is so grim.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Bottom

I love wearing skirts for more formal occasions and thankfully I finally found an A-Line Skirt with pleated front. I love that they’re in a comfortable thin material but not over the top. I also really like the design of this skirt where I can paired it with any boots or even high heel shoes. But this time. I took this opportunity to finally wear my ankle boots.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Shoes

Flat leather ankle boots with fringe is prefect for fall. I wear them with jeans, skirts and dresses. The design is simple but yet sophisticated. It has that girly cowboy look which I absolutely adore. Topped with the fridge, this boots are everything you need for fall season.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Handbag

I’ve been keeping this Coach New York Handbag I received from my hub since last Christmas because I thought it was too pretty to wear, but that’s nonsense!  Come on pretty things are meant to be worn and not just stared at, right! So, for its first outing I wanted to make it the statement piece of the outfit. I really like the color match I picked for this month’s look-book.

I was able to put my wallet, cellphone, lipsticks, mirror, glasses, phone book – yes, I’ve it with me for a long time and I always has it in my handbag wherever I go. I know, I’m strange!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Extra

I bought this necklace two weeks ago and I’ve been reaching for it. I’m loving it! It’s a pretty accessory that make an impact to the entire outfit. Today, I’m going to show you this silver chain necklace and talk a little bit about it. I like silver as to gold – reason been anything gold I wear will turn red. But don’t get me wrong, I do like gold things as long as I’m not wearing them.

So, that’s it for my first installment of fashion post here in this blog. I’ve some more fashion haul coming this way.

Would love to hear your feedback or comment as to what you think of this post. I hope you fin this post interesting and let me know if there’s anything particular that you’d like me do in the comment section.

Thanks for taking the time to read and I hope to see you again on my next blog!

Have a fab week!

Sharon xoxo
