cactus flower

4.jpg 8.jpgDuring our last trip to Edmonton, Geoffrey and I went on a massive shopping spree for new clothes. We never shop for outfits in our current city, so when we are able to get away, we always make sure to squeeze in time to do so then. This last time I had apparently went flower crazy. Without realizing it, I bought a floral crop top from H&M, a floral skirt from Forever21, and floral leggings, again, from F21.

6.jpg 2.jpgMaybe it’s because I was so damn happy to be in Edmonton that I subconsciously wanted my blossoming soul to match my clothing, or maybe because it was the middle of summertime, or maybe its because I bought these items on two different trips to West Ed Mall and didn’t put two and two together. Or two and one together. Whatever the case, it doesn’t really matter. I bought three great items from some amazing stores for under $50.

what i bought – uo beach towels

5.jpgNow that hell has frozen over and I’ve become a regular beach bum, I decided that it was time to invest in some beach towels. I turned to no other place than my favourite hipster store, Urban Outfitters. I bought a Relax towel for myself, and a Pendleton towel for my husband. But like any good mother, I love them both equally. ;-)))

29627304_011_bPendleton Glacier Park Towel $38

31244965_030_dRelax Beach Towel $12 (was $24)

4.jpgWith my towel, flats, Kinfolk Magazine, and Polaroid camera packed, I’m ready to hit the beach. See you all on the flip side!

bang bang (my baby shot me down)

2.jpgLast year I made the confession that I am not a purse person. I have to make a point of buying a new bag once a year. If not, I will happily use the same one until it falls to bits and pieces. This I’ve done before. 

If you have already read the previous post, then you will also know that I finally visited the most amazing clothing store that I discovered through Instagram. One of my many purchases from that store was, you guessed it, a new purse! This one is by the brand Liebeskind, which literally translates to “child of love.” Based on my German background, the name, the colour (Watermelon), and its overall uniqueness were the biggest reasons why I went ahead and bought it. Plus it’s so soft! Also, the sale price did help.

3.jpg1.jpgSo here it is, my Bonnie Vintage Leather Handbag! I hope that you get the significance of this title now that you know the name of the bag.

4.jpgIt really is the cutest little purse. If you have not yet owned anything by Liebeskind, you must go track it down and get all touchy-feely with their items! You will never be the same.  In a good way.

thrift store shopping

IMG_1.jpg IMG_3.jpg IMG_4.jpgIMG_5.jpg IMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpg IMG_8.jpgIMG_9.jpg IMG_10.jpgIMG_11.jpg IMG_12.jpgIt probably comes as no surprise when I say that I am a thrifty gal. I hate paying full price for anything, especially when 9 times out of 10 you can find that same item for a discounted price if you were to dig around. This applies to clothing, food, electronics, appliances, vehicles, and more. Just about everything, in my opinion. While your second option may not be an exact duplicate of what you initially wanted, I tend to think of it as the better one because not only were you patient in your search for it, but you also paid less for it. To me, that’s what shopping is all about.

On this particular day, Geoffrey and I went to three different stores for our deals. We started out at JYSK where we bought many items that were on sale, then to the local Salvation Army, and finally to Value Village. I came away with some amazing purchases from the later two places, including a silver and antler serving tray for $2.00, a large woven and framed racoon picture for $3.00, and a vintage dress for $7.00. These were documented on my Instagram, so if you would like to see what they look like, you can follow me here. The only thing that would have completed my thrift store outing would have been a trip to the dollar store. However, there’s always the next time.

i have a question for my family, friends, and followers. how do you do your online shopping?

recently, i have been buying more and more through etsy. while i generally find clothes priced more inexpensively on ebay, i am coming to realize that the quality of items and the service is much better on etsy.

that being said, when you find a new and very trendy shirt on ebay for the price of two coffees (with free shipping), a seller’s friendliness  is probably low on your list of expectations! bonus? it is incredibly cute in person and even cuter when it is worn. :-)
