Shopping Haul

This post contains referral links and affiliate links.


So, I’ve never actually done a shopping haul post but I’m pretty excited about everything that I got yesterday. And I apologize in advance for the pictures – I took them with my phone instead of my big camera, on my bed because my lightbox is downstairs in the soap room with soap in it. So, I have to make due with what I have. You understand.


First, we went to the mall to go to Rainbow and Victoria’s Secret. First up is the stuff I got from Rainbow –



This cute little dragon hoodie was only $5. Of course I had to have it. It’s a dragon AND a hoodie. My favorite things!


This devil monster hoodie was also only $5 and it’s pretty stinkin’ cute, too! rainbow3 rainbow4

I’m always looking for big earrings. i had my ears gauged to a 00g and have since taken them out. They’ve shrunk down quite a bit but still aren’t totally normal size and probably won’t ever be (Think before you gauge, kiddies!) so I have to wear big earrings that won’t slip through the hole. I found two sets that were buy one get one 50% off and they’re all perfect! I also found some clearance ballet flats for $5 – seriously, Rainbow has the best clearance sales. I love it. 

Victoria’s Secret is currently having their 5/$27.40 on panties sale. I also got a coupon to get 7 for $27.50 while I was there yesterday so I’ll probably be going back. Also, VS is currently doing their secret rewards cards. It’s worth at least $10 and you can get them by shopping at the store OR by mailing in a request for one. (You can get one a day for like 29 days. So, if you’re really crazy, like me, you can send one off everyday and have at least 29 cards worth at least $10 each. If you’re bored and want to get some free swag from Victoria’s Secret!)


The last place I went was Target. Thanks to ShopKicks and ibotta it was a lot of fun. My nail polish remover ended up being $0.56/each thanks to a cartwheel deal and a catalina coupon I had. My essie polish was part of an Ibotta deal – I had been eyeballing that color for awhile now and finally decided to get it. The cute Russian nesting doll socks were only $1.50! I love socks and I love them even more when they’re that cheap! Plus, more panties…. because, Star Wars!



That’s my first shopping haul post. What do you think? What should I include next time I do one (should I even do another one?!) Let me know below!

The Nerdy Fox

How is it already February? I don’t understand it at all. I’m not ready. I’m not ready for anything related to February. On one hand, I want time to speed up and on the other.. I’d like for it to slow down. You know what I mean?? I’ve had a UTI and now I have some gross mucus-y cough thing. It’s been horrible. I’m pushing through it though.


Things I’m absolutely loving this week


My Charlie makes that same high-pitched sound.  It’s cute.



Way Back Den Pillowcase Set

Of course I’m in love with these. Aren’t they so sweet? I love the tail so much.

Sweetest Setting Garland

I’ve never been big on decorating for Valentine’s Day but I could get behind something simple and sweet like this.

Heart-Cover Copy Cardigan

LetGÇÖs Walk About Love Sneaker

Maybe I’ll even get a little crazy and wear something Valentine’s Day-y?? Who knows! I’ve done stranger things!

Things I Love This Week!


I found this Nessie Ladle on Amazon – of course I had to order it ASAP! I can’t wait to get it. (Then, while I was ordering, I found this pastasaurus and have to have him, too.)

I am also dreaming of this dress from ModCloth

coach dress in plaidI apparently have a thing for coach tour dresses. The neckline is just so pretty, though! Plus, plaid is my favorite.

trooper duper bagOf course, I am going to be drooling over anything Star Wars. Isn’t this bag the best?!


Lastly, I found this little gem at Target the other day. It’s in the Men’s section but, like I said, I can’t resist anything Star Wars! Apparently it’s not available online anymore but I had so many in my store here… If you want one, you should go browse the Men’s section. They also had Chewbacca and Darth Vader … and a shark one!

Have you been over to Costume Playbook? Because, let me tell you, I’m getting so excited for Halloween! They have some AMAZING guides.

My Custom 4th of July Dress by eShakti


I was recently contacted by and asked if I was interested in doing an honest review post in exchange for a custom dress. Of course, I was all over that! I have never had a custom tailored dress so I was kind of unsure of how hard it would be, especially because it’s all online and up to you to get your measurements. Fortunately the site is extremely informative on how to obtain the correct measurements. It also suggests to have someone else measure you – which is super helpful when it comes to your shoulders! Now, I am kind of busty, like a 32DD, so, it’s really hard for me to find button tops that don’t bust open or gap. I knew that I wanted to go with something like that, because, if I’m going for custom, I might as well get something that is hard for me to find, right? So, I measured (twice) and found this dress!  It’s customizable  down to the length and whether or not you want pockets. I was so sure that even though I had everything measured, it still wasn’t going to fit over my chest. However, it fits. It fits perfectly. It is hands down my favorite dress.


Funny story, I was wearing it on the 4th and we had company over. Apparently, they thought the dress was to “old” for me. Classic. I wear vintage (both authentic vintage and vintage style) dresses all the time. I have always been a fan of the pussy bow collar dresses and have never been able to find one in my size or find one that fits my chest. I had to jump on this one when I found it. It’s PURRFECT! (get it?)  It just made me laugh. I think it’s a pretty dress and clearly I have a different taste than most people but, in general, I think most would agree that it’s a great dress. It fits well and it’s a classy style.


Now, I thought I’d share some pictures from my 4th celebrations –


How was your fourth? Do you have any custom tailored clothing?

Things I Love Thursday #11

Do you ever have one of those weeks where it just starts off bad and the rest of the week is ruined? That’s how my week has been. Between meetings that have gone to hell, migraines, and kids being mean to my kids, I’m pretty much ready for the weekend. I can’t even enjoy my weekly online window shopping. I’m keeping my TILT short and sweet.

Bloom for More Dress

I’m dreaming of this pretty springtime dress. Wouldn’t it be perfect to wear on Easter?

Portobello, Goodbye Notecard Set

Oh… be still, my beating heart.
