Why thrift shop?! So we can dig up some treasures, pieces that can incorporate with our modern things nowadays! Also to find designer pieces that are wayyy cheaper than buying in retail stores! But what's so fun in looking up used items anyway? Some people don't get the idea of thrift shopping because they always think that everything is unsanitary! For me I'm not too picky in that area! If I buy thrifted clothes I make sure as soon as I bring all the items home it goes straight to the washer! Simple as that! You see...if you go to a retail store, do u think u are safe because you thought that the item is brand new?! I don't think so! You don't know how many people tried it on! I do the same process whether I buy brand new clothes or thrifted, it goes straight to the washer! But for some reason I have a rule that I don't buy any undergarments like underwear, lingerie and socks in a thrift store! For me its just too weird buying used items like that lol! I'm more into finding belts, bags, bangles or any fashion accessories! Sometimes I do like to look for designer clothes for cheap! :)
Speaking of bags....after watching a gazillion of thrifting hauls online, I kind of went to a Salvation Army near my house and see if I can find some good things/deals! My mission was to find a really nice vintagy looking belt, purse or any fashion things that are vintage looking even if its not real vintage from 1960's or whatever! I look through all their belts but nothing! I look for scarves but most of them are like forever21ish looking scarf ahaha! Then I look at the bag section and I found this really cool looking brown bag! I opened it up and it says real genuine leather and it was made in Canada! The coolest part was its only $5bucks!
So I look this bag up online and Mimo Sacs bags are from 1970s! Its leather inside and out! I love it! Still in really good condition, no scuffs or marks on the bag! The label is still intact and its clean inside! I really like the detailing on the outside and also the gold hardware is so cute! Out of all the nice things about this bag I like that fact that is a crossbody bag! I'm so into crossbody bags lately, so its like a bonus in scoring the bag for $5 you can't get a cute real leather bag anywhere not even at Forever21 lol!

Squeezing this post before I go to work LOL! Just an outfit of my weekend....I wore a slouchy crop purple shirt and i put a long black tank top underneath then a grey wash skinny jeans! For shoes I love my softmoc black boots they are the most comfortable boots ever! Similar to Uggs but these are more affordable but still durable! I have these boots for over a year now, they look pretty beat up because i use it almost everyday! For accessories I just throw in my favorite long heart necklace from Forever21! Don't mind the messy room....its laundry time as well ahaha! Plus it feels like unpacking to my move in this house is neverending! I still have 2 luggage to unpack and I'm living here 2months already agghhrr!
For makeup....as usual just my powder from MAC studio fix NC40, blush from NARS "outlaw", eyeshadow just the Urban Decay primer in Sin, then eyeliner from Estee Lauder that I love! Mascara "falsies" by Maybelline and for lips Rimmel "Airy Fairy" I top it with some random gloss that I can't remember it from LOL!

A slouchy stripe top! I love the color combo grey and pink! I love slouchy tops like these to hide the bulge in your mid-section ahaha!
I got another heart necklace! Been obsessing with hearts too! I have a few heart necklaces actually but I like this one because the chain is long like my previous one that its so old that I need a new one! Forever 21 jewelries are cheap and don't expect to last long!
Last thing that I got was this nailpolish! I love the color its a dark blue and its called "magnetism"! I got this when I was about to pay and its just near the counter and I saw the color and fell inlove! I don't have the color so I figured for the price of $3.80 its worth it! Polish is creamy but a little bit streaky but its ok! With a nice top coat it'll last for days!
Today its me and Bf's day off so I am dragging him to come with me to the mall and maybe give him a little tour at F21 ahaha! Not like he cares or anything but actually he is a bit curious of what I've been obsessing about the store! Its almost my bday anyways so *wink*wink* LOL!

Dinner I got my Valentines present and it was a surprise...well I was surprised lol! I got my BF a DVD "shutter island" yep...nothing fancy but we agreed that we will not spend too much on gifts because its only Valentines! When I saw the gift bag said Swarovski I was like hmmmm and when I opened it oh myyyyy! I love the ring you can view the ring on the website here! I am wearing it everytime I go out, just sparkly and shiny and soooo pretty! I soooo love it and I love him sooooo sooo much! <333
Me wearing my moonlight ring and of course my EOS candy brown contact lens!
On to my haul....I got the OPI's much talk about Shatter polish "black shatter" and a Rimmel base/top coat polish! I went to Walmart to pick up another Wet and Wild color icon pallete in "greed" (246) and a Maybelline Mascara "Falsies" I heard so much good reviews about this mascara and they are on sale for $3.99 lol! At Winners I got the Instant Lip Volume and to tell you the truth I don't know what brand its called but they are made in Italy! Smells good and not sticky, also the taste is so goood kinda like a candy!
We are trying to get the house look more like a home, so we are slowly getting more house things lately! Like this clock I bought it cheap at Winners (kinda like TJmaxx here in Canada!) I thought its going to look big on our dinning wall but it look so good with the newly painted walls....tnx babe for painting! lol!
Curtains and this rod was cheap at JYSK! Just a simple black rod and white flowy kinda like c-thru curtains is perfect! Very relaxing and soft looking in the bedroom windows!
Beige and Cream satin Curtains for the Dining room! I love the Material and they are on sale too from JYSK!
Lauren's Princess room! She really loves her room but unfortunately she don't sleep yet on her own! We are trying to put her to bed on her own but she kept going back to our room! But eventually she will sleep by herself, its just takes time I guess :P!

There is a story behind of getting this phone?! Nope its simple actually, after giving my BF a new LG keybo cellphone for his bday last year and he loves it, we went out and feel inlove with our new LG plasma TV we bought last New year and I figured when Telus Mobility came out with this new LG Optimus I look it up online for reviews and I thought right away I will like it! So what happen to my Blackberry? ughmm I send it over for a repair, keyboard is fucked so yeah I guess I got no luck in owning a blackberry! Down with 3 blackberries and none of them last ahaha! After repair I will just sell it and not bother switching back!
