BLACK FRIDAY 2014 HAUL

This has to be one of the smallest Black Friday shopping trips ever. Last year I purchased 15 movies for under $30 and this year I knew I had to make a stop at Walmart to see what other movies I could score. I did’t want to spend much as I am trying to put more in the bank instead of our the bank. I ended up with four movies: Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse plus Despicable Me for all under $10. I ended up heading over to F.Y.E to see if I could find the rest of the Twilight series, but I ended up getting Fast 6 for $7. Another collection complete. I headed over to Five Below and saw a cute iPad case for $3, originally $5. Only thing I hate bout the animal cases is that they are really never sized to the iPad. They’re typically too big.

Last stop I made was to the mall. H&M didn’t have anything I wanted and I would’ve stopped in Old Navy (50% off entire store), but I would’ve ended up buying more than necessary. Wet Seal had a Buy 1/Get 1 Free sale and I purchased a pair of boots for $40 and got the plaid shirt free. Expect a future OOTD with those items. I stopped in Charlotte Russe as well which had a buy 1/get 1 for $1 on heels and boots, but of course none would be in my size. They had a better selection that Wet Seal. Anywho, I didn’t break the bank and ended up spending /a little over $50. Not too shabby. Check out my pic below & be sure to follow me on Instagram @MusicMovingForward. HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEKEND!

Fall Haul Pt. 1

With less than a week left in October, I think it’s safe to still post a fall haul. Then again I can post it up right until Thanksgiving. Although Winter doesn’t begin officially until December 21st, once Thanksgiving is over it becomes Winter for me. I love posting hauls and watching them on YouTube. This time around I bought NO CLOTHES (shocking), but I stick to leggings and sweaters in the fall anyway and I really don’t need anymore. I stocked up on my essentials, treated myself to a pair of shoes, and snagged a couple candles from Bath & Body Works. Oh and I received something yummy in the mail. I’ll get to that later.

IMG_3941First up are my essentials that I had to restock on. Aside from razors and other feminine products, I had to get my favorite hair care product, Organix ‘Renewing Argon Oil of Morocco.’ With having relaxed hair this stuff works wonders. After washing and conditions my hair, I towel dry and apply this oil while its damp before blowdrying. It makes my hair so soft and I can flatiron my hair and not have to again for nearly two weeks and I owe it all to this product. It goes a long way and I had a mini size from a Organix 3 Piece Starter Kit that lasted me from October to this past late March/April.  I’ve seen the results of my hair with and without it and THIS is amazing; highly recommend.

IMG_3937Next up are my shoes from DSW. I’m not a huge fan of DSW, but I had a $15/$49 or more coupon so I took advantage. I didn’t get sneakers and a pair of boots I wanted were $150 and then I saw these. The heel is the perfect height, they are extremely comfortable and I snagged them for $40 with the coupon. The brand is Diba and the shoe is called ‘Femma’ for those interested.

IMG_3931From Bath & Body Works I picked up two candles in their 2/$22 sale, ‘Green Apple Orchard and ‘Autumn Sky. These two candles smell absolutely AMAZING! I was looking for a candle that had more of a manly scent and ‘Autumn Sky’ is PERFECT. I can’t wait to light ‘Green Apple Orchard’ on Thanksgiving.

Last but not least I jumped on the Nature Box bandwagon. My full review will go live on Wednesday (10/26/14).

In my next haul expect to see items from ShoeDazzle and Sephora.
