What could be more positive and fantastic than shopping???
I wanted to make sure to stay full of good vibes, so I thought the best way to start off this fabulous month of October was to do some good shopping. Woooop!
FIRST OFF, to start my day off with awesomeness, I got this fabulous $20 gift certificate for RA Sushi (one of my fav places, sooo good!!!) because it’s my half birthday month! Thanks RA!! : )
(This also means that I need to go there ASAP, which brings me so much joy because I absolutely love everything they have on the menu!! Happy hour what whatttt!!)
NEXT, I realized I had over 10,000 points on my AmEx account… which could only mean that I needed to get another “free” $100 Apple giftcard!! Yayy!! I’ve already gotten so many of these, I absolutely love that I can buy awesome apps for my iMac and of course so many songs in iTunes. I’m a few points shy of a $50 giftcard from my Visa too…. damn, I LOVE reward points! If you aren’t using yours or don’t have a card that offers them… GET ONE!!!
On the online shopping front, I’ve had a cart going on F21 for the past couple of days and still haven’t added the last few items to reach the $50 mark (then it’s free shipping so of course I always feel like I HAVEEE to spend at least $50 haha). The main reason I wanted to buy anything there at all was because of this casual crazy messed up meow kitty cat dress — >
…. I also added tons of jewelry to my bag too. Most of the items are under $4 so it’s easy to keep adding more to your bag, not realizing or even remembering the items I’ve been adding the whole time! Love surprise time!
And then there’s this little ol’ issue that I’ve been dealing with from JustFab… I hate that you have to cancel/decline the month within the first 5 days of the month, otherwise you are charged the $40 fee and basically can’t get your money back — however, the money counts as a credit towards 1 pair of shoes, so it’s not like you’re technically losing anything. Anyway, I’ve had this credit going on my account for 3 months now and still haven’t found a pair of shoes I’ve loved or really wanted/needed, but they just added some new styles and since it’s now boot season, I want a pair of some nice new boots for casual days at work and weekends. Here are some options…. hmmmm….
And last, but certainly not least, I am lusting after this item right meow… the sterling silver beads, the beautiful blue heart, the way it will look fantastic on my wrist… I want it I want it! ; )
PS: My impulsive need to shop also just made me add this, however, this is something that I have wanted and have been looking into for months and months now. The “subscription” type clothing service is called Golden Tote, and I learned all about it by reading reviews from My Subscription Addiction. She has one of my favorite websites and thanks to her I know about so many of the amazing boxes I get… ANYWAY, I am so excited to start this service! For either $49/month with 1-2 items or $149/month with 6-7 items (worth up to $600!!!!), you basically choose two of the items/clothing pieces (I am going to try the $149 option) and then they surprise you with the rest!
You get to choose the first 2 items and I already want these 2 super bad so I am not ULTRA excited to see what else they surprise me with in my very first Golden Tote!!! : )
all love & smiles,
