Okay, I was PLANNING on doing quite a few posts tonight but right now I'm working on a post and it won't let me add pictures!  It let me put 2 but when I went to add a third it doesn't show up.... anyone know why???  Blogging is not my friend. )-:

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Purple Sweater from A'GACI Review

Now, before I continue I want to say I purchased everything on my own.
A'Gaci has no idea who I am.
Let me start off with a few pictures:
This is the image from the website.
Length on me.


Love the neckline!

Shoulder detail.

As you can probably notice from the picture of me wearing this shirt, it is very long... More like a sweater dress for me which I wasn't expecting.  I'm not quite sure why I thought it wouldn't be so long on myself, I highly doubt the model is 4'11, lol.  The quality is good for the price.  I surely won't be wearing this in the dead of winter without a sweater, scarf and jeans.  Although it isn't very thick, that was evident in the stock photo.  By the sheerness of the bust area and being able to see the models bra through it, one should not assume when purchasing that it will be a heavy material.  That makes me really like this company thus far.  They could have easily altered that to appear more opaque, which would probably attract more buyers, however they did not.  I have washed this sweater dress (haha) once and the color is still great and no loose threads.  I did put it in a lingerie bag to be on the safe side though. 



Quick post.. just wanted to let you guys know has a deal going on today and tomorrow.  All clearance items are buy 1 get 1 for 1cent!!! always, they have their flat rate $5 shipping as well.  Hope you find some goodies.


Ps.  I'm going to try to get a few posts up tonight and approve comment.

Breast Cancer Foundation

Do you like yogurt?  How about purchasing Dannon this month instead of your typical.  I'm not sure about where you live but where I live there is no difference in price from the Dannon brand to the Store brand.  The only difference this month is when you purchase Dannon theres a code under the lid, when it's entered into their website ( they donate .10 to the Breast Cancer Foundation.  It doesn't have to be the "fruit on the bottom" kind, Dannon has about 5-6 different kinds to choose from and they all have this under the lid.
Maybe you don't like yogurt....try telling family members who do to purchase this brand instead (or any other brand that is doing this as well, its right on the front of the yogurt package!) and give you all the tops to enter into the website.  Personally, I do not eat yogurt but my daughter loves it.  It makes me feel good to be able to contribute in such a small way.  I've (or should I say, my daughter) has already "donated" about $2 already.  It really adds up, and I believe they will be doing this until January, I think I read that somewhere.

NO, I am not being compensated for this post nor am I affiliated with Dannon or ANYBODY for that matter.  I just think it's a really simple way to help out, especially if you already are a yogurt eater.

I love the UPS man!

Not sure why the image rotated since it's not like that when I upload it. ::sigh:: blogspot really doesn't like me!  Anyhow, I ordered a few things during ULTA's 40% off sale they had going on a few weeks ago.  The other two boxes are my LoveCulture and A'GACI orders!!! YAY!! I've already torn open all three boxes but right now I'm getting ready to go to dinner so I will post pictures and let you know my inital responses to everything tomorrow.  Have a good night everyone.

Face Of The Day

Here's what I'm wearing:

Face:Aveeno “Positively Radiant” moisturizer
Sonia Kashuk tinted moisturizer in Tan
MUFE HD microfinish powder
Clinique concealer in “05 Golden Beige”

MAC  eyeshadow “Print”
e.l.f clear brow gel

Eyes:Smashbox primer
NYX Jumbo pencil “French Fries”
All over lid: MAC “Honey Lust”
Crease: MAC Smoke & Mirrors Pallete (#6)
Outer V: MAC Smoke & Mirrors Pallete (#3)

I did more online damage today...shame on me.  Here's what I got...

[*all photos taken from the abercrombie website]

These were all found on the kids site in the sale section!  Nothing was more than $15 isn't that awesome??  The last item I actually got in a Coral color but when I went back to get the image it was sold out.  I thought it was a really cute layer piece under a plain cardigan since I own about 30 cami's and they're all a plain color with no lace or anything,  I'm such a plain Jane.  I really hope everything fits, I ordered a large in everything but the zip-up sweater I have on right now is a Medium in kids.... the shirts tend to run smaller so lets hope I made the right choice!

I've been such a homebody lately which results in online shopping that I really can't afford.  I hate this rainy crap weather.  I miss Cali right now.  The weather is almost always nice enough to go for a walk in.  New England weather = 9/12 months cold, rainy, snowy.  Cali weather = 9/12 months sunny, nice, comfortable....everything happens for a reason though and there's a really really good reason why I'm over here now and no longer there........... one day I'll know that reason.
