Sales and Gift Cards and Birthday Money!

I love that my birthday is two days after Christmas... not because I get double the gifts but because of the after Christmas sales! I get gift cards and money and its so much fun to spend at all the great sales!!!I wanted to hurry and use up the gift cards I received for my birthday. You have to use those up before they start deducting fees! I had one for $25 and another for $50!!! Love it! Well I have been in search for a pair of boyfriend jeans... I have had no problem finding a pair I just have a problem paying what they are asking for them! On my lunch hour yesterday I decided to run over to Cato to see what they had... here's what I found...well even though they are not boyfriend jeans I liked the rips in them and thought they were pretty close. They were on clearance for $14.99. The regular price of $19.99 wasn't a bad price but of course its always better to save!


Sweater - GAP on clearance for $19.99 and an additional 40% off!
Sequin Tote bag - GAP on clearance for $29.99 and an additional 50% off
Clogs- Michael Michael Kors on clearance for $74.99 and an additional 50% off at Dillard's they have the biggest sale on Jan 1st!(w/b-day cash!)

So I purchased my jeans and picked up this cute little jacket at Cato for $7.99 regular price was $24.99! My total was $24.59! I was pretty close to spending that whole $25!!! LOL!

Boot and Legging Craze

I dont know what it is about leggings and boots... but lately it seems that is all I wear...


This is me at my Surprise Birthday Bash... They told us (me and my twin sis) that we were going out for a New Year Dinner Party and to wear something black. I picked this top up at Loft. Everything in the store was 50% off! Saw plenty I wanted but I just got the shirt.

Just a day of shopping... this jacket was on clearance at a super deal! I wish I gotten the khaki color too! Had it been something I could wear to work I would not have thought twice about it...
