UGG vs. EMU Part Deux

It happened by chance, but I finally purchased a pair of Emu boots today.  I was actually going to the mall to look for the Adirondack Boot II. However, I wasn't sure if I wanted to pay $300 for a pair of boots.


STINGER LO AUST MADE

New Emu Water Resistant Australian Sheepskin


UGG AUSTRALIAN ADIRONDACK BOOT II 



There has been many comments on my blog to my original post Ugg Vs. Emu. I have never tried on a pair of Ugg boots so I cannot compare them. I can't wait to wear my new boots. I forgot to mention that I found a deal - Buy 1 pair get 2 free. I was able to get two other pair of boots - one dressy and one to wear when it snows.

Deluxe Beauty Samples

I am quite curious about the various sites that are popping up that will deliver to your door every month deluxe beauty samples.

Each month you will receive 4 to 5 beauty samples and shipping is free. I get a lot of samples from stores that I shop, so I am not sure if I want to actually pay for them. If I do not like something then I will give it away to my sister or friends.

I must admit it is a great way to learn about new products. When I read fashion magazines there are pictures of products that I would like to try, but never do. Maybe in the new year this may be something I will consider.

These are some of the sites that I found:

New Purchases: Marc By Marc Jacobs

I must have mentioned before that I am obsessed with Marc By Marc Jacobs products (I cannot afford the Marc Jacobs line).

Last month I purchased new prescription glasses. I did not intend to get Marc By Jacobs frames, but they were exactly what I was looking for.






I also purchased this iPhone case holder at Holt Renfrew. I love the fact that I can carry it like a wristlet.
