postheadericon FYE: Pop-Rap - Pink Friday [Deluxe Version] Nicki Minaj / CD / 2010



FYE: Pop-Rap - Pink Friday [Deluxe Version] Nicki Minaj / CD / 2010

If you want to get the Nicki Minaj Album then make sure to go to your local store and pick it up as it dropped today. I could not find the deluxe album in any store near me.

At Target the deluxe version is only available in stores but no store in NC carried it according to the locator on the website!....They do have the regular album available and also the "clean" version.

Walmart only sells the clean version but Target has the album for cheaper but I think shipping might be cheaper so it might balance out at the end of checkout....

I ended up purchasing the album from FYE for $12.99. The website stated you would get a free rubber bracelet with purchase so that's a little prize considering I could not get to the store. I also was able to get 10% off with a code from retailmenot.com. I paid $3.99 for shipping and with tax the price was $16.90.

Although I could have purchase the deluxe album in store for cheaper I just did not want to go to the store...lol... I'm having a lazy day and plus people are christmas shopping around this time and I just want to avoid the mall altogether.

I was able to hear samples of the song on Amazon.com. The album is $11.99 on amazon but I wanted the bracelet so I paid the $1 more.

I am really feeling the song SAVE ME (other songs as well but this one hit me)....

Now Im just waiting for MAC to release the lipstick. Like I've stated before I have been looking for a nice pink lipstick to go with my skin tone. I think "Pink Friday" will be perfect!

postheadericon T Day

I got a chance to go to forever 21 yesterday to see the faith 21 line. Honestly everything was so crammed into a corner that it made shopping difficult! I did purchase the "pretty sequin skirt" in a 2X for $24.80. I also picked up the tank for $3.80. The cardigan was $15 from ashley Stewart and the tights are from lane bryant for $18. The shoes are from a previous haul from dsw.

I tried to show the makeup but I didn't do a good job. Lol.

Anyways back to the festivities. =]

postheadericon Update on Fovever 21 Package

I FINALLY received my F21 package today!




I tried on the leggings and I must say they are indeed comfortable. I would say order your correct size or size down. Due to the elastine in the leggings they have A LOT of give in them. I ordered the 3X and they don't look quite like the model. They are fitted but when you get to the ankle part they are loose. I will definately size down next time. Hopefully they get more in stock because I really wanted the black ones. They are thick so they will not show through like stockings but not as thick as the sweater type of leggings. Quite comfortable I must add again! Go get you some!

I also got my rings. LOVE them. Now I have everything I need for my great birthday weekend. Off to enjoy the festivities!!!!

postheadericon Nicki Minaj MAC Lipstick Pink Friday

Pink Friday 4
$14.50

Pink Friday 4 is supposed to be a mix of MAC Pink Nouveau (Satin) and MAC Girl About Town (Amplified Creme). I'm not one for pink lipsticks but I really want to try this one. I've been trying to find a "Barbie Pink" lipstick that will look good with my brown complexion but that is easier said than done. I've seen pictures of Nicki Minaj wearing her Barbie Pink lipstick and she makes it look so wearable.



To my knowledge the lipstick will be available for 4 Fridays starting on Friday November 26th. I've heard rumors that it might be available this friday November 19th for MACPro members. Since I am a Pro member I will be stalking the site all day to see if it drops!

postheadericon Wet Seal Mini Haul

It seems as if I get EVERYTHING before forever21 packages come. I ordered from Wet Seal last week and today my package is here. I ordered from F21 two weeks ago and I'm still waiting. Its a BIG turn off from shopping with them but the only way I can get the plus size line is to order off line. Grrrrrrr!....

Anyways...

I bought 3 things from Wet Seal and it only cost me $7! Well plus shipping and tax I paid a whopping $12.93. I love that kind of shopping! Here is what I bought...



Stud Rope Belt Top
Originally: $24.50
Sale: $2.00

I bought the top in both the purple color shown above and in black. The back of the shirt has a small keyhole cut out. The shoulder portion has shoulder pads. When I first took the top out I was like..."Shoulder pads...What is this!?" But once I put it on you can't even tell it has them! I ordered the shirt in a 2X because I wanted it to fit a certain way (fitted) but I kind of wish I would have just ordered the 3X because Im scared the shirt might shrink. It fits nicely as of today!

Chain Knot Dress
Originally: $29.50
Sale: $3.00

I ordered the dress in a 3X because I know the sizing is junior plus. The 3X fits great! I still have room just in case it shrinks. The shoulder portion a chain type material that really gives the dress something extra. It is long enough that I could wear it as a mini dress (hits mid-thigh...maybe slighter longer). I plan on wearing the dress as a tunic with the navy tights I ordered from F21 if they EVER come. I hope they do as I am going out of town tomorrow for my T-Day (birthday) and I wont be home if it comes too late.


I ordered the tights before I ordered the dress but got the dress first. WOW. As you can tell I am a little upset over this. Its coming down to the wire and I hope I get my package in time.

I will attempt to show all of my bday outfits using the clothes I recently purchased as well as makeup looks. We will see how that works out...Stay tuned.

postheadericon DSW Shoes!!!

I love DSW shoes. They often give GREAT coupons. I got a $20 off at least a $40 purchase. Wow!...I had to go shopping. Once you accumulate a certain amount of points you get certificates that pretty much work like money...$5, $10 and so on off of a purchase.....That kept me shopping. lol.... Here is what I bought...the price and what I paid for it....






Madden Girl Zany Boot
Black
Price: $59.95
Paid: $43.05
This shoe comes in 2 other colors. A grey and a brown (cognac). I originally wanted the brown but got tired of waiting for my size to come in. (It never did but size 10 did come back in stock the last time I checked) I am able to get the shoe up over my calf. It comes below knee level. With my calves I would have a hard time getting anything other than a tight to go inside of this boot. If you have smaller calves than you might be able to get a skinny jean to fit comfortably.



Dollhouse Chala Bootie
Rasp (site says Red)
Price: $44.95
Paid: $37.66
I fell in love with this shoe. When I ordered they only had 4 of size 11 in stock. By the end of the night they had 1. Needless to say that one didn't last too much longer. As of right now only size 6 is available at DSW but you can find these shoes at other websites for around the same price. The come in other colors but I've only seen the black. The wedge is 3.5 inches with a 1 inch hidden platform. They are comfortable to me and I am far from a heel wearer.



Blowfish Hichi Ruched Wedge Bootie
Cognac
Price: $59.95
Paid: $39.84
These shoes are available in two other colors as well on the website. The heel on this one is 2.5 inches so no damage will be done trying to walk in these. They are very comfortable. The next best thing after flats!


At DSW when you are a Rewards Member, you get free shipping when you spend at least $35 so all of my shoes included free shipping! Any shoe that has a heel/wedge I always go up a size so all of the shoes I bought were a size 11. I don't have big feet. I have wide feet. It's so hard to find cute shoes in wides so I just buy larger sizes. DSW states that it goes up to a size 12 but I have yet to see any cute shoe in that size....but of course what might be cute to me might not be to someone else. I say check them out. They do carry designer shoes such as gucci, handbags and men shoes as well!

postheadericon Haul Time Part 2

So...Can you tell I LOVE to shop? Lol. Anywho....I found out late last night via email confirmation that the LB assoicate that made my LB2Me purchase ordered the wrong bra. I was suppose to get the Lace T-Shirt bra in Petal Pink but for some weird reason she ordered it in Desert Flower. Now I could understand if I had not given her the EXACT bra that I wanted just in a different size! Tsk Tsk LB! I attempted to call LB online and get it corrected. The online representative stated she was unable to make changes to the existing order but she would send me out another bra at no cost to me. I would just have to send the wrong bra back (of course at not cost) when I received it. Unfortunately for me there was no more of my size online. I was able to go to a different LB and get my pink bra!!!!! You can take a look at the pink bra in a previous post if you want a looksee. I got a 40% off coupon for LB that I got to use for a cacique bra purchase that I used taking the total to $21 and some change. The other bra I will return as I dont want that color. I will just use that $25 towards my next purchase when I get to use my Real Woman dollars.

Moving on.....

I went to Forever21...lol...No matter what mall I go to I have to check them out. Now again if they would only get the plus size line in the store near me. (I do plan on visiting the store in Raleigh, NC that sells the plus line to see if they have anything I want...lol...stay tuned for that). I bought a cute bracelet and some more ankle socks....




The bracelet to my surprise is not tight (the reason I bought it..lol) As you can tell two leaves make up the end points of the bracelet. It is selling for $6.80. I could not find a picture of it online so here are my own pics.


I tried to show how you open the bracelet to get it on.
=]

A better picture of the leaf design

I attempted to show how the back of the bracelet looks. It is just a plain silver. I did see the bracelet in a gold color for all of you gold lovers.
=]


I also bought 5 more pairs of socks. I LOVE the cute designs on them. I must admit that I hate wearing socks....or shoes for that matter. I'd rather walk around barefoot and I take my shoes off the first chance I get...lol (even if they are the baddest shoes ever)....But since I tend to get sicker as the weather gets colder my mother thinks its a good idea to wear them. If I must then I wear the thin ankle socks. F21's socks are perfect!....I don't know how long they will last since these couple of days have been my first purchase but maybe I will update that at a later date. Here are the socks I bought:

Solid Striped Socks
$0.95
Turquiose


Music Symbol Ankle Socks
$0.95
Cream/Black


Cup Cake Ankle Socks
$0.95
Black/Multi


Zig-Zag Ankle Socks
$0.95
Black/Multi


Bow Print Ankle Socks
$0.95
Black/Pink
I could not find this sock on the website so I uploaded my own for you to see!
=]

Ok so I was going to save this last item for my makeup haul but I've bought so much makeup that I will probably either do a video or list the things I bought on here with no pics. I will list where I bought them though....Anyways....Here is what I bought from MAC!...

5 Warm Thrillseekers Pigment/Glitters
Trendy, thrilling, and oh, that sparkle! This warm-hearted mini-sized combo set consists of Most Darling, Gift o' Glamour, Gold Mode and Gilded Green Pigments and Reflects Bronze Glitter. Use on eyes, face, anywhere sparkle is desired! All come ready to gift - or enjoy - in a tartan tin of M∙A∙C Holiday.
$32.50


I decided to get the collection because I originally wanted the melon pigment but that would have been $19.50 by itself. I figured I could at least try 5 different ones for twice the money. The Gift o'Glamour and Gold Mode remind me of that color. I already have the Bronze eye shadow and I really want to see if the reflect bronze glitter will look good when paired with it.
 
I also bought a wig.....
 
Freetress Synthetic Fullcap Bali Girl
I bought this wig in color TP4/27 (medium brown/strawberry blonde)
$24.99 ($17.99 on clairhair.com)

The actual wig is a tad darker and the highlights are much more suttle.
 
This go around I spent waaay less money. I don't plan on buying anything else until this coming weekend....THE BDAY WEEKEND.....Stay tuned for the Wet Seal/Forever 21 (orders from offline) update/review as well as the makeup up video or posting!

postheadericon Haul Time!

So I went to the mall with my mom today and we went on a little shopping trip!…We only hit a 3 stores but managed to spend well over $300.…mostly coming out of my pocket…lol. The first store we went to was LB or Lane Bryant….




Here is where I spent the bulk of the money. We did have a coupon for $25 off $75...you know …one of those coupons that gives you a portion off depending on how much you spend. I wont mention what my mom bought but I bought 2 bras (2 have to be mailed to me since my size was not in store), panties (5 for $29 but I got 3 and my mom got 2), and a sequined tank. It baffles me how even with my mother’s two additional items we spent $145 in that store. VERY over priced if you ask me. I did get some real women dollars. They stated that I would be able to get $75 off of a $150 purchase starting after Thanksgiving. I saw some pants that I want but at $60 I left them there. I might just go back and get them. I do like the face that LB had little stocking stuffer items available for purchase…little wallets, watches, nail polishes, and such for a reasonable price.

I usually wear a 42C in bras. Here are the ones I bought today:


The above two bras are being shipped to me
The first is a cotton T-Shirt Bra (animal) and the second is a Lace T-Shirt Bra (satchet pink but i really wanted petal pink).
$36 (the store was buy one get one 50% off)

I also got a cotton plunge bra
$36


Ok so my mom saw they had matching panties to the third bra. I don't usually care but it's my birthday coming up so why not. Since they were 5 for $29 I got three and my mom got 2. I buy 14/16 but I wear a 18/20 in the clothes. My style was a little over the place but here are my three:


Stretch Cotton String Bikini


Lace Trim Boyshort


Ruffle Cotton Hipster

I also got a sequined tank in a 14/16:
Stiped Sequin Tank
$19.99
And that's all I bought from LB.



I also went to Forever 21. I can never go to the mall and not visit F21! I had been eyeing some things from the website and thankfully the store had them! That’s like a first ever. Now if they would only get the plus line! I only spent $20 in there with two necklaces, 3 pairs of socks, and a ring.

I bought this necklaces but in both colors:

Pearlescent Spectacle Necklace
Cream/Pink
$4.80


Pearlescent Spectacle Necklace
Silver/Black(website says cream/black)
$4.80



I also bought this ring in grey. It has a stretchy band
Glamour Large Oval Ring
Grey
$4.80


I also bought 3 pairs of socks but I want more! They just didn't have all the ones I saw from online. Here are the 3 I bought:
Heart Print Socks
Cream/Muliti
$0.95

Heart Print Socks
Cream/Coral
$0.95

Bear Ankle Socks
Heather Grey/Red
$0.95


We went to Maurices. Now this store is OVERPRICED! At least LB has quality behind the clothes. Maurices is nothing more than an overpriced F21! Because I don’t have too many options when it comes to in store shopping I decided to make a purchase. I needed a shrug to go over the tank. Because my birthday is next week I really didn’t want to take the chance of ordering something and not receiving it in time. The shrug I found was very thin and black and was priced at $32. With the item that my mother wanted we spent $67. I ended up returning my shrug 30 min later. It just wasn’t worth it…Plus I found something BETTER and CHEAPER from Ashley Stewarts.


This is what I bought/returned in less than 1 hour:
Drape Front Tie-Back Cardigan
$32.00



From Ashley Stewarts I purchased a belerro type of shrug. It has a lace back and the front is loosely reminiscent of a blazer type of jacket. It only cost $15! Better quality and cheaper price!
 
Now I could not find a picture of the cardigan that I purchased from Ashley Stewart but it has a lace back. The front puts you in the mind of a blazer but it is not structured. It just has lapels. I hope that's clear. Also it is waist length in the back and hangs longer in the front. I purchased a size 18. It was on clearance for $19.99 with an additional 30% off. yay me.

postheadericon Torrid Haul(tiny)

I was going to save my Torrid Haul (all of two items) and combine it with my Wet Seal Haul (3 items) but I just couldn't wait!...lol.....I am trying to come up with the perfect T-Day (birthday) outfit which gives me a reason to shop. That and the fact that I have been sick!...But Im doing much better....Maybe it's because I'm getting packages...lol. Anyways here are the two things I bought from Torrid.....

Silver Layered Chain Skeleton Key Necklace

I can't quite remember how much the necklace would cost normally but I got it during 50% off clearance. This is really the only time I shop at Torrid. The quality is just not up to par for the price. I'd rather give my money to Lane Bryant...At least I know the quality is there. Anyways I eneded up getting the necklace for $3.05. =] It felt a little heavy when taking it out of the package but quickly dissappears upon wearing. According to the website the shortest chain (with keys) is 18" and the longest key is 2.5" long. It is a really nice necklace and will be a great addition to my jewelry collection.


Black Studded Convertible Bucket Bag


With my discount I paid $5.01 for this bag! Great deal. It is studded on the front like the picture shows. The rest is a leatherette type of material. The inside is black. It has the basic pockets. A zip pocket inside and two slot pockets for a cell phone or keys. On the back of the purse it has a zippered pocket where you can keep items as well. To convert the purse into a backpack you would simply take the strap and fasten it to the bottom of the bag. The is a snap part that you would unsnap and hook around the strap. This sounds much more complicated than it really is. Unfortunately the bag was sold out when I tried to find the picture to show what I mean. Great bag for the price! =]


Updated on 12/04/10: Picture of the back of purse
^
The strap that unsnaps so that you can hook the strap in and wear it as a backpack.

I am happy with my purchase. I am upset that shipping is $8 considering I only ordered two things for so cheap. My items came to less than $10 before the shipping charges....grrrrrrr! On the up side I ordered the items on monday and received them friday. Torrid has always had fast shipping. Forever 21 needs to take a page out of their book!
=]

update 12/04/10
I forgot to mention that Torrid shipped me the purse with the sensor tag on it. I did not notice until I went into a store and made the sensor go off. Talk about embarrassing! I was nowhere near a Torrid store so I had my friend damn near saw the sensor off. Luckily it came off.

postheadericon Faith 21/Forever 21+ Haul

I wanted to include everything from my Forever 21 Haul....

1. Super Fab Makeup bag in Light pink ($3.80)
http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=beauty%5Fcosmeticbag&product%5Fid=1085652670&Page=1

This bag is a plastic feel on the outside. The inside is a plain light pink color. The bag also comes in a darker pink. Good enough for throwing in your purse.



2. Rhinestone Hoop Earrings ($4.80)
http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=acc%5Fearrings&product%5Fid=1083497066&Page=all&pgcount=25&sort=lp


These earrings are a nice size and perfect way to spice up any outfit. I'm glad I decided to purchase these!

3. Rhinestone Encrusted Earrings ($6.80)
http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=acc%5Fearrings&product%5Fid=1084521450&Page=all&pgcount=25&sort=lp

I honestly thought these earrings would be much bigger. Goes to show that you have to pay more attention to the description of earrings on the website. The earrings have are definately pretty but not worth the price. I guess that's where the rhinestones come into play. To me they are more line $3.80 or maybe $4.80 but for the price of $6.80 they should be a tad larger!

4. V-Neck Top ($8.80) (purple/navy and black/grey)
http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=faith%5Fmain&product%5Fid=2078801595&Page=all&pgcount=20&sort=lp#


I ordered a 2X (which is my usual size in most stores) because I wanted to make sure the shirt was fitted. I love long sleeved shirts that you can put your hands in. What I mean by this is that the sleeves are long on me so they will gather slightly at the wrist. The shirt stretches and will be fitted. If you want a more relaxed fit I say go one size larger as this shirt is suppose to fit fitted. They do carry one other color that I did not purchase.

5. Regular Fab Skinny Jeans ($11.50) (indigo and black)
http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=faith%5Fmain&product%5Fid=2077413813&Page=all&pgcount=20&sort=lp

As previously posted I ordered these jeans in a size 20. Forever 21 did not have an updated size chart so I did not know the measurments for their size 20 but the pants do fit. I was shocked that for the price I paid, these are actually jeans and not leggins/jeggins. I am 5'6" and the regulars are a tad long on me so like the models you can either roll them up or have that "scrunched" affect. The jeans do have give in them but fit close to the body like skinny jeans naturally do. They are indeed a great purchase and I am so glad I was able to pick them up!

I made another order with Forever 21 but I have not received it yet....

I ordered:

Basic Knit Leggings ($6.50)
Navy


I ordered a 3X. I do want to order more of the leggings but I first want to see how these fit before I splurge due to the lame return policy Forever21 has.

I also ordered two rings:

Grand Dame Cocktail Ring ($3.80)


Large Faceted Ring ($3.80)
Both rings have a stretch band as these are the only ones I can wear from F21. Stay tuned for Torrid/Wet Seal/Makeup Haul/Review.
