I pass both these awards to:

I adore her creativity. :)

She does wonderful make up!

She's one of the most spontaneous people on blogger!

The queen of giveaways! She's a sweetheart!

I'd like to add more but I can't think of anyone else at the moment.
I need some shut eye for now.
Have a great week ahead, everyone!

  3. @Olya Thank you! Gotta love H$M! :)

    @Mimi You're most welcome! :P Thank you! I can't wait to wear them! I like seeing tagged clothing in my closet. lol. Me too! I don't really shop unless I get a discount. I'm frugal like that. hihi.

  4. oh no problem, girl! I love H&M as a whole! and their scarf started my scarf obsession back in 2004!!!

  5. ohhhhhhhhh yeah!!


    love this sport ;) ;P

    kisses from Germany Sweety.

  8. really cute scarf! great finds!

  9. oh, I love your blog! full of inspirations and I have to tell you that.. you live in a place where I would like to live so much! I mean, California is amazing :) Maybe just because I've seen all of the "Laguna Beach" episodes on Mtv and "The Hills" too, but I don't know.. I'm so jealous! :) Maybe you have a Facebook account and you would like to contact me and tell me a lil bit more about USA and CA :) that would be really nice :)
    lots of love!

  10. The skirt is SO cute!

  11. @Olya That's wonderful! I like their accessories the most! Some of their clothing is too 80's for me though.

    @TrendRebajas Gutentag! I love shopping too! I'm trying to keep away from it! Danke sehr! Hallo from California! :)

    Katrya Karla Thanks for taking the time to comment on my post!

    @sabina You're welcome and thank you! :)

    @JUSTYNA AWW! That's so sweet of you to say. I really enjoyed your page. It's the most unique one I've seen so far. I live an hour from Laguna Beach. I'm in the Valley. I do have a FB account! Feel free to add me on there. :)

  13. @Katie You're welcome! I know, eh? I only shop when there are sales going on. I don't like to squander my money. I will get some signature pieces cuz I'm a sucker for that! lol. Thank you!

  14. you got soo many great deals!! all these things are awesome :D

  15. I envy your finds! I also envy the fact that you are small enough to shop at places that don't ever carry "big girl" clothes. Sigh...

    And congrats on the blog awards!!! They are always super fun and super ego boosting. :D

  16. @Pop Champagne Thank you! :)

    @Christina in Wonderland AWW! Thanks! I have wide hips so it's difficult for me to find bottoms. I think I'm a size 6 here in the States.

    Thanks so much! :) There are stores that cater to big girls. Torrid is a great one. :)

  17. I Love Black Friday shopping too!!! lol!! love winter clothes. The scarf and skirt are too cute..

I am soooo into them at the moment they have such nice stuff, their homeware is sooo cute ...I want it all. I love the purple dress and the polka dot skirt is super cute xxxxxx Hope you are well kitten xxxxxx

  20. Those finds are fab! Love the skirt that you wore like a top. :D

  21. i am jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL =))

  22. Black Friday, yay! You found some great finds. I have a terrible time at H&H, I'm too tall and busty for most of their clothes, but I do like their prices. How's married life?

  23. Super cute collection. I love your style ♥

  24. @MissK Thank you! I'm a sucker for polka dots! :)

    @Taj Thanks! :)

    @Vintage and Cake Thank you! I only had a civil wedding so I didn't go on a break. We went to Vegas prior to the wedding so that's enough. We got to work! :) H$M is awesome!

    @Novie Thanks! I think I'll wear it with leggings. :)

    @Rinz You can go to The Northridge or Topanga mall! :)

    @Miranda Thank you!

    @myraysofsunshine I can't wait for Black Friday! I'm going to get up at 4am! lol. Really? I wish I was busty! :)) Married life is going well for me. We did live together before the marriage so this is just a formality. :)

  25. I love getting a good deal on clothes! I shop at most of the same places; fashionable but not pricey. I want that skirt!

  26. Awe, Great haul! I'm loving the boots and the purple blouse! :)

    @Raven But of course! Honey, with over 17,00o views, people do read your blog. :P Thanks for following!

  35. Wow, totally awesome finds! I absolutely love the scarf, red dress and fur lined boots you got (boots as a wedding gift?! now that a proper present if you ask me!)

    For some reason I never get anything decent in the sales. Maybe I'm just too lazy and dont put enough time and effort into actually looking for stuff. Hmmm, basically all I really need a personal shopper who'll work for free... :)

  36. you got so many awesome stuff and for such an awesome price! love the boots :)

  37. @All Made Up Thank you! The scarf happens to be my favorite find! The boots are from my aunt. I was so happy when it fit me because my calves are so chunky! :))

    Well, it took me a while to look for those items. You should have seen my husband's face! lol. Maybe you should get one! :))

    @Diana I know, eh? I love bargains! <3 Thank you!

  43. Hey Toni! How are you? Thanks for the comment, haha yeah I have a bunch of crap in my makeup bag cuz I live far from my work and 90% of the time my friends wanna go to a nice dinner and a bar after work so I am always scrambling to go from daytime natural look to something a little fresh or a pop of color, but luckily it's not weighing my bag down! LOL. I love your post on you and your husband, congrats! I am engaged myself and we are aiming to get married next year but what a crazy process! Hope all is well with you!
