Sloucher

According to this picture, I have bad posture. But I'd like to blame it on the rain. It was sprinkling. I am so hard core. (Not really.)

I just want to say thank you for all your endless support. I never ever thought I'd have a pubic blog, not to mention readers! You have definitely made my year.

Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year!

Good Day

I like Winter Break. Bunny and I are definitely a little more relaxed, but too bad he starts Winter classes next week. I am following him, keep him company you know.

I saw a cool bird today. I never seen a blue bird. I wonder what kind of bird it is.

Bunny finally took me to In-n-Out today for lunch. I say finally because he doesn't approve of fast-food. Before him, I was a fast-food junkie. I love fast-food. It's so delicious, especially the $0.99 tacos from Jack-in-the-Box. If you haven't tried them yet, you must. During my senior year of high school, my best friend J and I must have consumed over 300 tacos in the course of just nine months.  We'd make at least one to two stops after school each week. We got a lot of other friends hooked as well. I wish I saved these receipts. We still joke around about the number of tacos we've eaten.

Good thing B came into my life. I'd probably be huffing and puffing walking up our stairs if wasn't for him. I shaped up for me and him. But that doesn't mean I don't eat it behind his back, kidding of course.

Wedge Affair

I got a new pair of wedges! And yes, they're black! They're going to replace my current beat up black flats. But no, I am not tossing them out yet.

Thank you all for your suggestions! I haven't had a chance to check out DSW, but I will hopefully tomorrow. 
I found my new black wedge at Target for $20 in the clearance section. They don't have the exact pair online for me to show you, but hopefully I will show you a picture of them on my very own two feet soon. In the mean time, snag this pair. It's less than $10!


But wait! Before you order, sign-up for Ebates! You'll get $5 for signing up and 3% cash back on your Target order, or any online order in general. I use Ebates every time I shop online - even if I only get 2% back. It's just means a little more spending money!

I hope you all had a warm and merry Christmas!

Eco Natural Soap Holiday Giveaway (Closed)

Earlier this month Alicia and her husband Alan sent me a few bars of their soaps to try and they are offered to do a small giveaway for you from their little shop, Eco Natural Soap.

When the box arrived, you could already smell their products, not in a bad way, but a clean smell. I live in the city, so maybe that's why I can describe the smell of clean air.

Seaweed & Cucumber Complexion Bar has magically fixed my patchy dry skin. When the weather gets chilly cold, I get these patches of dry skin on the side of my jaw. They're really noticeable since they are almost 1-2 shades lighter than my already pale skin. I couldn't hide this either since I do not wear any make-up. But now I can say this has been a fixer of my problem + some face lotion with SPF25 of course.

Bath & Body Bar moisturizes my dry elbows, knees, and shins.

You definitely need to try their products. I'm not a very good at using lotion. Lotion just slips my mind. So if you are anything like me, you're going to love their products. And here is your chance. The winner will receive one soap and any one balm/ butter and any one lip balm of their choice.


Mandatory Entry:
Tell me one product you would like to try by Eco Natural Soap.
Please be sure to leave your email address for me to contact you if you win. (1 comment)

Flats

I am in dire need of new black flats. I held onto these bad boys three years. They're from American Eagle Outfitters. (I also have a brown pair I bought a few months after I bought the black pair.) They're comfortable, but of course, without the much needed arch support, they're not that great if you plan on shopping a marathon. So why am I being so stubborn and holding onto them for so long even thought they're very broken into? 

It's simple. I can't find any that I actually like that fit in my price range. I've tried to replace them, but the replacements ended up hurting my feet. They end collect dust until I decided to put them back only to reminder of why I stopped wearing them in the first place.

Bunny hates these flats. He says they smell. Haha-ha! Sometimes I forget to wear socks. And sometimes I run out of flat-socks so no socks on they go.

So yes, I really need a new pair. You can see the rubber is falling off (below).



Do you have any suggestions for me? I wouldn't mind a small wedge either!
Thank you in advance!

Plain Justine

I would have used "Plain Jane" but my name is not Jane. Darnnit.

The other day Elaine was talking about wearing sneakers. I used to wear these in the rain because well, flats just will not cut it in the rain - neither does Converse. They're made of canvas. So now I wear boots. But then my converse hardly get worn.

I didn't know how to dress them. This is what I wore. I stripped down to the basics, the bare minimum.

CSN Holiday Giveaway (CLOSED)

I know Black Friday was just a few weeks ago, and may of you from what I've been reading did mention that you splurge quite a bit. By any chance, did any of you purchase a new television?


Why am I asking you may ask? Well, CSN contacted me the other day and they would like someone like you, yes, you, to have a new tv stand. I mean we wouldn't want your Holiday guests to gaze at your new television on the floor now would you? Having a neck cramp does not sound pleasant.

So enter away! You can be the next winner of a $35 gift certificate!

Mandatory Entry: 
Tell me which tv stand you would pick. Feel free to leave a link.

Camera Shy

Finals are coming up. I feel behind. I do not have enough time. It's going to be a long and lonely two weeks. I hate finals week because it means no sleep and no Bunny.

Today was not Skippy's day. He wasn't in the mood for pictures or neither one of us really likes my new camera or the camera doesn't like us.

My Love...

.... is not a bargain shopper. If he likes it - he buys it. I am not kidding. I try to teach him. Bargain shopping is either a learning process or it's genetic. I should have not taken him to the Macy's Friends and Family Sale (25% off) or Banana Republic (Not Black Friday, Friday Sale, 25% off). Why? Because he spent $70 on neck ties. Yes, that's right, seventy bucks and some chump change. Should I mention he only got TWO?!

He'll appreciate this picture of him.
I am just kidding.
He probably won't.
I am going to post it up anyways.
I love you Buns!
