Plato’s Closet Run! :D

Recently, I decided i needed to get new jeans; Marth loves them, and there’s only one, possibly two pairs that fit me, because i’ve lost weight recently (yay! πŸ˜€ I’ve been working out every day so it’s great to see it’s been paying off!)

I thought about Khols and Walmart and JC Penney and all those other places that have good clothes and since the tax return came in, i actually have money again. At the same time…I remembered the tight, uncomfortable “new jeans” feel. :/ After spending years in hand-me-down jeans from my ex-boyfriend’s older sisters, i just have had a hard time getting used to new jeans. I haven’t had a comfortable pair of new jeans since 2013…and they were the only ones i’d had since 2011. XD

Not that i’m complaining!! Hand-me-down jeans are soft and comfy and, as long as they’re a good brand name, still have plenty of wear in them πŸ™‚

Somehow i had forgotten that me and Marth’s favorite high-end thrift shop, Plato’s Closet sold jeans.
Fortunately i remembered just in time! ^_^
After trying on about 7 pairs, I got American Eagle jeans for $17! They’re long, comfy and lived-in. πŸ˜€ ❀

Soooo of course, i couldn’t stop there…

I found this cute little number, and there were two reasons i had to have it.

  1. I’m a huge sucker for skater skirts.
  2. It was $5. πŸ˜€

(It’s lacy and cute at the bottom too!)

Then, i remembered i had bought my favorite sweater from there, a while ago. Its a gray knit button-up cardigan…from the guys’ section. So naturally i had to peruse there too πŸ˜‰
Before i even got to the sweater section, i found this…

I mean. C’mon. It’s awesome. And it makes me think of the guys from the Big Bang Theory. And it was $6, so i bought it too ^_^

Aaaand then i got to the sweater section! πŸ˜€ It took some looking cuz there were not many that unzipped/unbuttoned all the way down.
This one, has pockets and it’s so long and comfy! πŸ˜€

Last but certainly not least….
As i looked thru the girls tops (which i finally decided i’d just go to walmart later, because there are a couple there i know i like and look good on me. Plus the crazy, overpattered oversized selection was giving me a headache),Β I happened to glance up at the shoe rack. I’m always on the lookout for heels, because i only owned one pair (brown leather hand-me-down from the ex’s sister) straight up until about 2 months ago when Marth’s mum gave me some that she bought that didn’t fit her. They’re Croc brand, so waterproof, sandal-style black heels.
I found these; black, borderline Steampunk style with a hint of Helena Bonham-Carter. ^_^ Usually cute things like these don’t fit me, but i had socks on today and i figured that would give me some wiggle room for sizing.
They slid on my feet like a dream. πŸ™‚

$9.00!!!
I couldn’t pass them up. ^_^

So that was my adventure today πŸ™‚ Grand total, including county tax ended up around $47-$50. πŸ™‚ So that was awesome!

Plato’s Closet. Super amazing value for adorable stuff! πŸ™‚

MEMEBOX.com Order #3 ^_^

The day has arrived…I’ve been waiting since the 7th for this box!! πŸ˜€
I just have to brag on this company so much right now…they are just wonderful!!
I usually place my orders on late Thursday night and receive them on Tuesday night. I was super disappointed that i didn’t get it last night, but i checked the mail the next day around noon and it was there! πŸ˜€ and let me tell you, it was well worth the wait!

First, I ordered 9 masks and a blemish cream.

Most of them are re-orders; there’s 5 total here πŸ™‚ I have acne and sebum trouble with my chin and t-zone so i love the teatree one!! Now that i switched to VaniCream soap and lotion, most of my acne has cleared (i’ll do a review on that in the future, as well!) and i just have residual dark spots and scarring from previous spots :/ so i’m super excited for the illuminating one, that, tho i’ve used before, it didn’t really accomplish it’s intended purpose because my acne was so bad. :/ i hope it will improve them!
The snail bee one is just amazing. If you ever want to choose and just try ONE mask, you should get this one. It’s $2, which is cheap for snail excretion and bee venom, it fits my face just fine, and it’s loaded with essence! It can make your skin kinda sticky afterwords, but oh my gosh, my skin feels like new afterwords!!

These are new purchases, specifically for my remaining acne in hopes that i can clear it up a bit! The cream was actually a little smaller than i expected it to be, for $10, but it’s not one of those things you’ll need to use alot of…I’ve heard nothing but good things tho about it, so i’m hoping it will be worth it!

Best part???
I do want to say that from both SoKoGlam.com and MEMEBOX.com, i’ve gotten free stuff! but this is the most free stuff i’ve ever gotten at once before!! These aren’t on the receipt and there’s no mention of them; they’re just in the box with my stuff ^_^ the TONYMOLY tomato is a sample size, but there is a FULL-SIZED, EXTRA mask stuck in my box! πŸ˜€ that’s at least $1-2 worth of free mask!! πŸ˜€ i was so pumped…

As always, the staff are super personal, and super cute! ❀ My full name was also typed in 22-point font at the top of the receipt as well, with some cute little drawings. ^_^
I’ve just never had a bad experience with them! πŸ™‚
I always buy just $30 worth, because then i get free shipping from them. ^_^ (SoKoGlam.com requires $50 :/ that’s the ONLY reason i don’t buy from them more frequently because they have great stuff as well!!)

SO, yeah! πŸ˜€ i’m so pumped, and i just had to brag on them for a bit, because they’re just amazing, and i’m always so excited to order and receive from them! πŸ˜€ It just goes to show that a little extra presentation, personalization, and just being great is worth it! ❀ i’d recommend them to anyone πŸ™‚

…Now, to go take a bath and try one of these out! ^_^

Hermione’s Time Turner Pendant

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Luxury-Plated-Potter-Hermione-Time-Turner-Converter-Pendant-Necklace-Popular-/261714121315?var=560583500475

So, i honestly have no clue how this happened. One minute, i was looking up pendants i could make out of oven-bake clay…next thing i know, i’m buying this Time Turner for $2 + free shipping! πŸ˜€ can’t beat that; its from overseas tho, so it will take almost two weeks to get here, and i just hope it’s not SUPER-super bad quality…
Either way, eBay IS Bae. ^_^
