Now that May has come to a close and summer has unofficially started it seems as though it’s about time I share my favourite things for May!
First up is outlet shopping! Now any fashionista knows that this is not all it’s cracked up to be… However, if you are willing to put the time and effort in to an outlet mall or one of the many discount websites you may or may not know about, you can end up with a great wardrobe for less! For instance I have been all about J. Crew lately, but my wallet has not, so I found similar pieces at J. Crew Factory, some items are not created equal, but most of them are good quality for the price. In addition to J. Crew Factory, I am also loving The The Outnet, Nordstrom Rack, Saks off 5th and Last Call (Neiman Marcus).
I am fortunate enough to live very close (two hours max) from a few outlet malls in the tri state area. My favourite is Woodbury Commons, or the Commons as local folks call it. I have been on numerous shopping trips there and gotten many nice, quality name brand items for less. And there is a wide selections of stores from Gap and American Eagle to Gucci and Saks of 5th. And they always have coupons you can download ahead of time if you sign up. And some sister stores will give you coupons at the register for more savings. It’s a lot of walking and waiting in line. But well worth it ( in most cases). I like to make a day out of it!
Paper crafts is my latest obsession… I recently started making a photo album/ organizer thing with an Alice in Wonderland theme. So far I don’t have all that much completed, but it’s starting to come together! My mother got me into paper crafts, she makes her own cards.
Here’s looking forward to June and Summer! And on that note it’s time to end.
All for now,
All for now,
