Getting into the Christmas Spirit

Being on a shopping ban has left me with little to blog about and a lot of extra time on my hands. Thinking about next year and my upcoming vacation (destination: TOP SECRET) is getting me closer to December 26th. Actually, I’ve also started my Christmas shopping early and have crossed some big ticket items off my list and also, found some Christmas spirit. Let’s start with the ugly Christmas sweater:

Petite Feet Sample Shoe Sale Update

I went to the petite feet sample shoe sale today with my good friends T and thekitchenslave. T convinced all of us to leave our house at 7:00 in the morning to arrive by 7:30. The sale was to open at 10:00 but doors actually opened around 8:45. We were about 20th in line and the weather was quite nice for waiting outside (as in not raining). The first 100 people in line received tickets for one free pair of $30 shoes.

My Epiphany and New Shoes… *sigh*

I realized after deciding to go to Urban Outfitters that it was a bad idea. The more I go to shops, the more I want to buy. It is a problem, yes. As I stood in front of a pile of green silky cardigans, I clutched a black box and in that box was a pair of shoes. I realized then, that I have absolutely no self control when I am shopping.

As I stood there deciding whether or not to buy them, I wanted to have the strength to put them down and walk away. It was simple. Well, I thought it was, but I just couldn’t. Then I decided, I’ll buy them and try them on with a few outfits and I’ll decide later whether or not to keep them. I knew in my mind that this was a trap, I’ll probably most definitely just keep them.

It’s October already??

My supervisor and a co-worker went on vacation and I was smoking busy for three weeks. I couldn’t look at my computer after coming home. But I’ve missed blogging. So here’s a long post with what I’ve been up to. I bought tickets to the Canucks opening game. It was sooo much fun! Even though we lost, I had a blast. I got to meet Fin!

Shopping Alert!

Can’t wait for my new Gold oxfords to arrive in the mail. They’re Steve Maddens bought off Hautelook and they’re also available in silver but not in my size. I’m already imagining what I’ll wear with them. They’re having a shoe blowout right now and the deals are pretty awesome.

🙂

BTW, Forever 21 has a free shipping coupon code right now with no minimum purchase until September 19th. The coupon code is MISSYOU10. Check out their fall clothes. So cute.

Joe Fresh Fall Collection

I have to say, I’m pretty excited about the Joe Fresh stand alone store that’s opening at 540 Granville Street on October 13th. With that being said, I’ve been checking out the newly expanded Joe Fresh section in the Superstore near my house and picking up something new everytime I go grocery shopping. “One package of blueberries, check. OoOoo… this navy striped sweater is cute too!”. When the new store opens, there will be 14,000 square feet of Joe Fresh goodness. Just from the fall collection, I’ve gotten myself a few pieces. It’s pretty hard to get my size in things I want because they sell so quickly.
