Payless buy one, get one 1/2 off everything

The baglady + shoe store = unlucky

I found a flip flop at Payless, but I could not find another shoe to buy. The buy one, get one 1/2 sale is ending Monday. I decided to get a bag. Surprise, Surprise!!!


This will be my weekend bag for running errands.

Lazy Sunday Afternoon: Jewellery Making

I spent the afternoon making bracelets today. I was in the process of cleaning my bedroom when I decided to make some bracelets. This time of year I like wearing more accessories.

I made 4 bracelets and I finished a necklace that I cannot remember starting. They were quite easy to make. I used stretchy jewellery cord that I purchased from the dollar store.

Yesterday I purchased these rings for a great price.  Have fun this summer with jewellery.

Body Shapewear

Why did someone not tell me before that shapewear is something that I should own? I went shopping today and the salesperson suggested that I try on shapewear under the dress that I was trying on. I agreed. It did wonders to my body. I think that I will have to start wearing it all the time. Even though I work out there are still some bulges that I need to hide.

The shapewear above was purchased at Penningtons  a plus size store.

Summer Sales...Already???

I went shopping today and was surprised that summer clothes were already on sale. I guess I missed the start of the shopping season. I had trouble finding clothes in my size.
The first store that I went to today was Addition Elle. I have been carrying around in my wallet for a very long time a $25 gift certificate. It was going to expire in August. I decided that this would be the day to use it.

Unfortunaely, I did not like the way that most of the items fit. I did find this cool jacket that was on sale. It is not practical for this time of year, but the price was too good to pass up.

Sale Price $29.99 (Regular Price $99.99)

I also purchased this necklace from Addition Elle.

Sale Price $5.00 (Regular Price $24.99

On my way to H2O+ to purchase some facial products, I noticed that there was a sale going on at Bath & Body Works. Actually it was an amazing sale. I purchased two body lotions and a shower gel. They were $3.00 each. From Left to Right - Exotic Coconut Body Lotion (236 ml), Country Apple Body Lotion (236 ml), and Exotic Coconut Shower Gel 295 ml).

I purchased this tote bag to carry all of my purchases. It is similar to a bag that I already own, but of course I could not pass up a deal.

Sale Price $10.00 (Regular Price $40.00)
I ended my day at my local grocery store to pick up a few items. Of course I had to check out the Joe Fresh section. I was no longer in the mood to try on anymore clothes. I saw this bag that I had seen in a magazine.  I know that I do not need another bag, but I wanted to do my part to support breast cancer awareness.

The Fashion Targets Breast Cancer Canada Collection includes t-shirts and a tote bag.

Thursday, June 2, 2011 is Canada's new online shopping destination for beauty products. I love shopping for beauty products and now that there is a new online shopping store, I am quite happy.

You can find over 300 brands offering a wide range of makeup, skincare, bath and body, and hair products.

I have ordered from Sephora in the past, but you have to consider the shipping costs. For Canadians you have to spend $120 in order to get free shipping. Otherwise, you have to pay $9.95 for standard shipping.

For a limited time only, offering free shipping on all orders over $25 (before taxes) for a limited time only!!!!!!

Please note that they offer delivery within Canada only.

After I posted the blog I found a brand that I have been looking for since 2008. I did not know if it was sold  in Canada.

Elemis Musclease Active Body Concentrate. I purchased it back in 2008 when I was on a cruise and was in desperate need of a massage. There is not much left, but it really helps my tired achy muscles.

Price: $67.10
