Pink Lily Boutique Haul – Fall 2018 (part 3)

November 17, 2018

This post is NOT sponsored by Pink Lily. This is my own opinion about my personal online shopping experience here. 

If you haven’t already noticed, I am in LOVE with the Pink Lily Boutique. This is my fourth time making a purchase from them, but the third time was just for a mystery bag so it wasn’t a full haul. Check out my first two hauls here: part 1 | part 2

This purchase was mainly for Fall or Winter items, but a couple could probably go for Springtime as well. I think I’m winding down with my Pink Lily purchases for the year. The last one I plan on making is going to be for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, but never say never. They could have an amazing sale, and I might change my mind. However, I plan to hopefully be done with most of my shopping for the year after Black Friday/Cyber Monday.

My Order

I love everything I bought. The material is so soft on everything and perfect for Fall and Winter. When I ordered these I got a 30% discount, and that was probably the only way I bought that last sweater. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it is so beautiful, and really cozy. However, it’s original price was $55, and I was not down to pay that much for a sweater. No matter how cute and cozy it is. I think I mentioned this in my first Pink Lily haul, and it is very important to try to buy on sale days if you aren’t able to spend that much money. I recommend waiting for sales that are 25% or more, because usually, the highest sales are 25 to 30%. 

I really enjoyed my purchases, and I can’t wait to check out their Black Friday sale. If you’re planning on making some purchases yourself, make sure to check out their Instagram for Black Friday sale news.

|10/15/18| My Weekend Fall Shopping Trip

October 15, 2018

I spent my weekend mostly relaxing, but on Saturday I ended up doing a spur of the moment Fall shopping spree. It wasn’t really supposed to be that big of a shopping trip, as I was really only planning to go out and get some groceries. However, that ended up turning into going to 6 different places, and most of my Saturday ended up disappearing.

Fashion

If you hadn’t read my blog posts about my recent purchases from the Pink Lily Boutique, I have already started building my Fall wardrobe, and you’d think I’d be done by now. Well, never underestimate my ability to lose self-control, and buy more clothes. You can never have enough sweaters, cardigans, and boots… All the clothing and shoes are from Ross, and they were all great prices. Each sweater/cardigan was below $15 each, and both boots were around $25 each.

I have bought a lot of cardigans this year, and that’s pretty unlike me. I’m usually more interested in sweaters and sweatshirts to make it through the colder season, but I guess my taste is kind of changing. I think my favorite cardigan is the rusty orange one with the stripes. It kind of appears redder on the photo, but it definitely is a real rusty orange. I also am pretty excited about my new boots.

Oh and not fashion related, but I also bought this coffee mug at Ross. It’s huge, and I am absolutely in love with it. I might be using this past Halloween, as I don’t think I have another mug like this one. 

Beauty

I’ve needed some refills on my usual eyebrow products, and I of course left with many more things. I have to say that I at least bought things that I will use this time, and not things that will just waste away in my drawers.

The liquid lipstick I got from Morphe has been absolutely amazing. It doesn’t dry up my lips, and it applies smoothly. The eyeshadow palette I got was also an amazing buy, and the colors are beautiful. They have three other palettes like the one I bought with different shades, and I definitely recommend checking them out.

I am a big fan of the Stila mascara and liquid eyeliner too, and I’m trying the IT foundation out for the first time so I will let you all know how that goes. So far, I’ve noticed that it’s lightweight, and you can barely tell it is even on. However, I find my skin looks great with it on, and it has just the right amount of coverage. (Not shown, I also bought an NYX eyebrow pencil and NYX eyebrow gel.)

Bath & Bodyworks

It wouldn’t be a real last minute shopping spree without me getting some candles from Bath & Bodyworks. I recently did a Fall candle haul, and I got most of the new Fall collection that they had come out with. There were some that I wasn’t that interested in buying because of the scents. Either they smelled too similar to something I already own, or I didn’t like the scent. (I have over 50 candles, so the first reason is usually why I don’t buy some candles.)

These 5 candles were not really necessary, but I talked myself into it because I had a great coupon and they also weren’t like others I have. Except for the apple one. I have plenty of apple candles, but that’s one of my favorite scents. I also got a couple from the Winter collection. I have to say that I usually don’t like the Winter scents, but these were pretty nicely scented. They are also true to their scent when they are burning too, which is always important to me when I decide on if I want to re-purchase.

I also bought these handsoaps, because I was running low on my stash at home. These are new scents to me, but I think I’m going to like them. They had a pretty good deal this weekend for 5 for $23, and I figured it was good to stock up on some so I don’t get tempted to go back in a couple weeks.

Finally

The rest of what I got was mostly groceries. Which was what I went out for in the first place, but I did buy a few more last minute Fall things while I was out. Pumpkins and flowers <3 The cat is none other than Littlebit (one of the two animals I named this blog after.) She was more interested in the squirrels in the tree beind me, than the pumpkins.

The pumpkins were so tiny and cute; I couldn’t help myself. It was the biggest impulse buy, but they are a cute addition to my Halloween decorations at home. As for the flowers, I did kind of have an idea of getting them for a while now, but I just haven’t got around to it. I finally did, and I’m glad. It really makes it feel like Fall now. The weather in Georgia can be kind of back and forth, and it usually doesn’t get really cold until November. So I have to use Fall decorations to at least make it feel like Fall for a while.

Overall, I enjoyed my shopping day on Saturday, and had a great weekend overall. What did you do this weekend? Have you got in the Fall spirit yet?

Pink Lily Boutique Haul – Fall 2018 (part 2)

October 10, 2018

This post is NOT sponsored by Pink Lily. This is my own opinion about my personal online shopping experience here. 

I know this is a little soon from my last Pink Lily Haul, but they had a big sale the other day and I couldn’t help myself. I actually had 2 separate orders. The first one was on the sale day, and I bought four things. The second order came the next day and was kind of an impulse buy. It was a mystery bag that was only $40, and it comes with three randomly selected articles of clothing.

The First Order

I got two shirts and two cardigans. I wanted to get some things that would work for Fall, and I’m kind of obsessed with the whole red and blue colors for Fall. I have to say that the chunky green sweater is extremely comfortable, and I can tell it’s going to keep me warm when we get some colder weather. The long sleeved red shirt is a different material than I’m used to, but it is still pretty comfortable and really pretty. The two cardigans are essentially the same item, but just different colors. They also have elbow patches which add a little cute touch to each cardigan.

The Second Impulse Order

I got an email the next morning talking about the Fall mystery bag, and after reading into it, I bought it pretty quickly. It’s only $40 with a $6 fixed shipping rate. You’re getting three items four $46, when they usually would be 30+ dollars a piece. The mystery factor is the only risky thing. You never know what you are going to get. You do know that it’ll be in your size, as you select that before purchasing the bundle. You could get Summer clothes even though it’s Fall now, or you can get pants or maxi-dresses which are pretty risky if you are a bit shorter.

I was pretty pleased with my mystery purchase. The two shirts are really comfortable, and they work relatively for Fall/Winter. The pants I am not quite sure about yet. They are high waisted which is nice, but they are a bit long on the legs. I’m only 5’2 so that wasn’t unexpected that they would be a little big on me. I might be able to hem them, or I might be able to wear them if I have the right heel. We’ll see what happens.

Overall, I am very much pleased with my purchases from Pink Lily. Online shopping can be a hit or miss, so far the few experiences I’ve had at Pink Lily have been great.

Pink Lily Boutique Haul – Fall 2018

September 18, 2018

This post is NOT sponsored by Pink Lily. This is my own opinion about my personal online shopping experience here. 

I know it’s not quite Fall yet, but I couldn’t help myself. I came across the Pink Lily Boutique in August, and I immediately fell in love with their clothes. It was hard to control myself and not buy every article of clothing they sell, but I managed to keep it to a handful of items.

I typically don’t like to spend too much when I buy things from a shop online for the first time. You never know how the material is going to feel, or how their sizes work. I kept that in mind when I bought my first few items from them, and I anxiously awaited my package to arrive for the next week. When they finally did arrive, I was certainly pleased with the clothes.

Pink Lily Boutique – 6 Items (3 shirts, 1 pair of shorts, 2 dresses)

Run To The Ocean Striped Blouse (Size Small)

Only Thing I Know Striped Blouse (Small Size)

Charming As Can Be Plaid Sweater (Size Small)

Just Keep Dreaming Floral Shorts (Small Size)

Casual For Fall Dress (Size Small)

Glowing Fondness Striped Dress (Size Small)

Can I just say how incredibly pleased I was when I tried these on for the first time? Each article of clothing I bought was made from the most comfortable material. They were soft and seemingly well made. The only thing I wish I did was buy more from them.

My Total Was $146 for these items. Here’s why it was worth it:

Five out of the 6 items I bought were new collection items, and only one item was on sale. I am not one to normally buy anything if it is over $20. However, I decided to put a little bit more into my budget for this, as I wanted to really try out some of their newest clothes and see what I thought of them. Because of how soft and comfortable the material is, how much I like the look of the clothes, and how the shipping & delivery process went are the main reasons why I would buy from the shop again without any doubt in my mind.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

After my successful online shopping experience, I started following their Instagram page and their VIP Instagram page(which gives insight on upcoming products and sometimes extra sales). They regularly have sales that are 10% over $50. It is very easy to spend over $50 here, but I’ve found that there are usually better sale opportunities that pop up. It can be a holiday or just a random day, but there are usually higher percentages off on those special sale opportunities.

I recommend that if you are concerned with spending too much money to wait for a holiday sale or follow them on Instagram, text notifications, or email notifications. You will get alerted when there are sales, and they sometimes have sales that are 25% off or more depending on how big of a holiday/sale weekend it is.
