Black Friday Sale 2016

[show_boutique_widget id=”502051″]

 

Happy Black Friday everyone! I’m sure everyone is out shopping the sales.

Me? I’m staying in and shopping straight from home. If you’re like me and try to avoid the crowds, then this post is for you. I’ve curated a few items from home goods, pet goods, clothing, shoes, to beauty that are a steal!

HOME GOODS:

For obvious reasons, my obsession for anything home is so real. I spend hours, days (I can go on) home shopping (my snapchat fam knows me). Her are a few items I found that are amazing and are on sale!

BEAUTY:

I’m a firm believer of spending more on beauty items as oppose to clothes because skin is everything, and when they’re on sale, you just can’t pass up. It’s even better.

CLOTHING:

I don’t like spending a lot on clothing or over $100, but these I just couldn’t not share.

SHOES:

I think at this point (if you’ve been following my blog and/or social media accounts) you know my love for shoes is no joke. Besides beauty, shoes are other items I wouldn’t mind splurging on – but you don’t have to spend a lot because these are on sale. 🙂

The Best Ways to Find Deals on Ankle Boots

ankle boots, sale, deals, fall, season, online, shopping, boots,

 

Whether you’re in dire need of new ankle boots to replace your worn soles or simply need a style update, shopping online is one of the most convenient ways to get a new pair or two. Making shoe purchases online can also save you a lot of money because of all the discounts and special offers you can get. Here are five of the best ways to find the best deals on ankle boots online:

Check out coupon sites.

If you want to slash up to 75% off the cost of your purchase, there’s no better way to do it than using coupon codes for ankle boots. Coupon sites offer products and services from top brands at discounted prices and you can even score special offers such as free delivery or a free pair of shoes. Voucher codes are great for those who want to stay in style and have trendy ankle boots but don’t have the budget to buy them at full price. You can get voucher codes for Public Desire by visiting Total Discounts and then you just need to apply the code when you check out. Remember though, it’s important to act quickly, as coupon codes have an expiration date and you have to make your purchase while they’re still valid.

Visit retailer or manufacturer sites.

Shoe brands usually have post-season or clearance sales on their products, so it would be a good idea to bookmark their websites and watch out for sales. It may involve a lot of waiting, but your efforts will surely pay off when you get your coveted ankle boots on sale. As with coupon codes, when buying at clearance sales you’ll have to move fast to make sure the pair you want in your size is still in stock. Many brands also provide discounts for students at uni, an incentive you don’t want to let go of. To get notified about clearance sales and exclusive deals, join the brand’s online community, subscribe to the newsletter or follow them on social media so you can receive promo announcements right away.

Browse around online marketplaces.

Online marketplaces such as like eBay offer items that are new or have never been used, pre-loved or slightly used. Sellers on these sites let potential buyers haggle or pay the listed price upfront. If you don’t mind wearing slightly used shoes, these online marketplaces are great places to find a good, affordable pair. If you’re hunting for ankle boots that aren’t sold in shops anymore, someone on eBay probably has them up for sale. It may require a bit of hard work, but you’ll surely score a great deal.

Consider clothing and shoe swaps.

Swapping clothes and shoes with other trendy folks is another way to find ankle boots online. There are websites that provide a platform for people who would rather swap clothes and shoes than sell. If you have items you no longer wear or use such as knee-high boots or a coat in the wrong colour, someone online may want them in exchange for ankle boots and a matching jacket. Swapping online is usually free or may involve a small fee for shipping but it’s definitely a sure-fire way of finding ankle boots at a low price or at no cost at all.

I’ve been a fan of the Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant since I was first introduced to the product earlier this year, so when I was invited to attend the Simply Stylist Session with Dove, I immediately cancelled my plans that Saturday.

For those of you who are not familiar with the Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant, it is amazing! Life changing, actually. It goes on instantly dry, cares for your skin, and keeps you feeling fresh and confident throughout the day – up to 48 hours. It’s perfect if you’re always on the go like myself.

The Simply Stylist session went on from 11 am to 2 pm. We got to listen to Jamie Chung and Dawn McCoy speak about beauty tips, life and career goals. Listening to them both speak was very inspiring, and motivating to continue to pursue my career goals. I also learned a new hair trick that I am excited to try very soon.

Stress-Free Packing Tips for a Weekend Getaway

Who doesn’t love a quick weekend getaway? I know I do! But sometimes when you’re faced with the task of packing for just a few days it can seem a bit like a chore. Lucky for you, this post will explore what I find to be some of the best pieces to bring so that you don’t spend a lot of time packing or unpacking for your trip. In the spirit of summer, we’ll be imaging that this mini vacay will take place somewhere warm and by the sea.

Thanks to bold colors, versatile shoes, and a few basics, you’ll have everything you need to grab your bag and go without having to pack everything but the kitchen sink.

Maxi Dress

stress free packing tips, getaway, weekend getaway, vacation, vacay, baecation, travel, blogger, desert, trip, road trip, melrodstyle,

A maxi dress is a great versatile packing piece. With the right shoes and accessories, it will seamlessly take you from day to night. When the sun is up, pair one of these with flat, lace-up sandals and hit the shops, head to lunch, or use it as a swimsuit coverup. And when the sun goes down, throw on a pair of heels and statement earrings, as you head out the door for dinner, drinks, and dancing.

Lightweight Jacket

stress free packing tips, getaway, weekend getaway, vacation, vacay, baecation, travel, blogger, desert, trip, road trip, melrodstyle,

Even though it’s summer, early mornings and evenings can still get chilly, so sometimes a lightweight jacket can come in handy. Add a different texture to your getaway wardrobe by choosing a denim piece that you can throw on over all of the tops and dresses you brought along for the trip. You can roll up the sleeves for an even more chill beach vibe.

Swimsuit

stress free packing tips, getaway, weekend getaway, vacation, vacay, baecation, travel, blogger, desert, trip, road trip, melrodstyle,

When your beautifully printed one piece can double as a top, it will make packing for your weekend getaway less hectic. Choose something like the gorgeous swimsuit above and pair it with shorts and those neutral lace-up sandals you packed. If you get chilly, utilize the lightweight denim jacket mentioned earlier.

Stylish Shorts

White, high-waisted denim shorts are a great packing piece for a weekend jaunt. The neutral color works well with the tops you decide to bring along—not too many, though! And like I said previously, these also look just as great over your one-piece swimsuit, creating a stylish look that won’t require packing a lot of unnecessary tanks and tees.

Strappy Sandals

stress free packing tips, getaway, weekend getaway, vacation, vacay, baecation, travel, blogger, desert, trip, road trip, melrodstyle,

Let’s face it, more than two pairs of shoes for a weekend getaway seems like a bit much, so let’s exercise some restraint here by choosing the right ones. A pair of trendy, flat, lace-up sandals will work with everything seen on this list—maxi dress, shorts, swimsuit, and more. They’re comfy and perfect for day wear.

Statement Heels

stress free packing tips, getaway, weekend getaway, vacation, vacay, baecation, travel, blogger, desert, trip, road trip, melrodstyle,

Short trips mean your evenings out are limited to maybe one or two at the most, so bringing more than one pair of heels would be a bit much. Choose a single pair that will match everything you brought, like your maxi dress, and opt for something comfortable as well as fashionable, like the trendy block heel.

Aside from undergarments and the rogue accessory, following just a few simple suggestions will make a world of difference when preparing for your trip. And now that you’ve gotten a few pointers on packing easily and efficiently for a weekend getaway, you’ll be able to concentrate more on sipping daiquiris by the bay, than wrestling with an overstuffed suitcase.
