Hello and happy Thursday! I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays!
Before Christmas I did a little shopping for some presents! I am definitely going to shop ahead of time next year. All the stores were crazy packed!
The first store I went to was Victoria’s Secret and that store was excessively packed. I was quite amazed how they didn’t run out of stuff. I was especially amazed at the workers there, and their ability to deal with so many people.
This year I wanted to get my aunts and older female cousins gifts. I never get them anything, so I wanted to do something nice for them. At Victoria’s Secret they had a fragrance/mist special. Usually their mists are about $18 each and I was able to get them for $6 each! I purchased not one, not two, but ten of their fragrances for only $60. At regular price I would’ve paid $180 for all ten fragrances, which is ridiculously expensive for me! Thank goodness for their promotions!
I also purchased two of their travel size fragrances for the price of one! All in all, I saved a total of $195, which is kind of a bargain if you ask me!
Since I did spend over $75 I was lucky enough to receive a free tote! The retail price for this cute tote was $58, and I was able to get it for free! I also think the tote would make a cute christmas gift.
The next store I went to was Old Navy. I haven’t been to Old Navy in the longest time, but since I had heard an awesome promotion that they were having I decided to give it a go!
I purchased a really cute long sleeve for my cousin. The retail price for the long sleeve was $14.99 and I was able to get it only for $6! I also got two items for my boyfriend. He had told me that he had been wanting an army green sweater. I was so luck to find the perfect sweater for him, especially since it was the only one left in his size. The retail price for this sweater was $30 and I was able to get it for $10! Lately he has also really been into flannels so I also got him a flannel.
All in all I saved around $51 for these three items!
I then went to the dollar tree to buy a little bit of stuff for the goodie bags that I had planned. I really love the dollar tree when it comes to holidays/birthdays because they sell awesome decorations/knick knacks for a really affordable price!
The last place I went to was Ulta! I absolutely love this store, because they have pretty much all beauty products whether they’re sold at Sephora or at a grocery store. I only got two items from this place and they were not gifts for anyone. I was actually in need of these products.
I purchased the Batiste dry shampoo. This is actually the first time I purchased this item and I am hoping I will like it. I also purchased some beauty rounds. I tend to use these to apply my concealer.
That is it for my shopping haul. I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed shopping for these items! Have a great day and happy holidays!
