New In: Attitude, Clothes, Booties, Bits & Pieces



There's just something about Friday that makes everything feel okay...am I right? I'm learning that no matter what happened yesterday, a new day deserves a new attitude. On that note, today I took some time to reflect on my many blessings and I realized that I'm very rich (said loud and obnoxiously like ATL housewife Nene Leakes, lol)!


Now, I'm no millionaire, but I am nevertheless very rich. I have food, shelter, good health, I'm whole in body/spirit/mind, I have an ever expanding circle of good girlfriends (finally!), my children are whole and healthy and doing well and every now and again, I can indulge in a little (discount) retail therapy :-)


Speaking of which, let's get on to the other newness...








Because one can always use a little help, I picked up the InStyle Secrets of Style handbook. Originally priced at $29.99, I picked this baby up at Half-Price Books for less than $8. Score right? It's filled with invaluable advice and great pictures for every style novice. Get you one!








Remember this dress? It was on my "Wish List Wednesday" post from a week or two ago. She's mine now! I bought her during a 30% off site-wide sale. I love making wishes come true :-)








Because I anticipate the acquisition of a new job in my near future, I picked up two pairs of these Super Skinny Twill Pants from Delia's.com. I had a $15 store credit and all pants and jeans were buy one get one 50% off. As a bonus, I received 15% off my order and 4% cash back when I shopped through Ebates.com. Do I know how to shop or what?








I scored these two striped bodycon skirts from F21 for $7.50 each. I also used a code for free shipping *pats self on back*








As you can plainly see, I got these three double sets of lightning bolt earrings from F21 for $1.50 each (free shipping included). The two love rings were $5 each on eBay.








These tan, faux shearling booties were on my wish list for less than two days before I scooped them up for 15% off their original price from Famous Footwear.












These two pairs of sensible but cute booties were 30% off at Kohl's. Oh, shopping through Ebates.com got me 4% cash back and free shipping :-)










All three of these faux suede booties were had for 20% off and free shipping at Alloy.com. Once again, 4% (daily double) cash back when bought through Ebates.com.




Did I do well or did I do well? Have you got anything new in? did you count your blessings today? Let a sistah know!
