The Look For Less: Gucci

I've been eyeing a small Gucci bag for a few months now but on my normal shopping runs to Forever 21 I came across the cutest bamboo handle satchel. Little did I know it was a Gucci Look for Less. 

From my research the Gucci version was well over $20,000. Which is WAY over a frugal shopaholics budget and probably has a lot to do with it being croc skin. The Forever 21 version is only $30. Self explanatory, a must have.

Save $ or Splurge $$$ Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

I always thought my skin type was dry skin until I visited the esthetician and learned it was, in fact, combination/oily. The reason why I thought it was dry is because it lacked hydration and was just dehydrated. Dry skin lacks natural skin oil but dehydrated skin lacks hydration. Once I learned that I made sure to add hydrating products to my skincare routine. Every now and then my skin needs a little extra hydration, so I use an overnight mask. I've been alternating between Lumene and Laneige gel masks. Both products are similar so I've used them both, but I can't seem to pick between the two. See the details and tell us what you think, SAVE or SPLURGE.

Lumene Hydra-technology combines oxygen-rich Pure Arctic Spring Water with Nordic Birch Sap that’s bursting with minerals, on application the innovative light-weight aerating complex indulges your skin's surface with moisture to provide intense hydration. Working in harmony these thirst quenching elements rescue skin to leave it smooth and even for an instantly fresh and radiant glow.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Propanediol, Betula Alba (Birch) Juice, Glycerin, Methyl Gluceth-20, Phenoxyethanol, Rubus Chamaemorus (Cloudberry) Seed Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Allantoin, Sodium Hydroxide, Trehalose, Urea, Eriophorum Spissum Flower/Stem Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium Edta, Copper Gluconate, Magnesium Aspartate, Zinc Gluconate, Pentylene Glycol, Serine, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Algin, Caprylyl Glycol, Disodium Phosphate, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, Pullulan, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sorbic Acid, Potassium Phosphate, Linalool, Benzyl Salicylate, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Limonene, Citronellol, Parfum (Fragrance), (Ci 42090) Blue 1, (Ci 60730) Ext. Violet 2

Splurge: Laneige Water Sleeping Mask $25
Recharge your dehydrated skin while you sleep with this innovative mask. It’s formulated with highly concentrated Hydro Ionized Mineral Water to deliver high doses of moisture to stressed, parched skin. Calming Sleepscent™, infused with orange flower, rose, and sandalwood, and it relaxes and comforts while apricot and evening primrose extracts to brighten and purify fatigued skin. The result: skin looks and feels radiant, refreshed, and soft so you wake up with soft, glowing skin.

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Cyclohexasiloxane, Trehalose, Sodium Hyaluronate, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Root Extract, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Fruit Extract, Beta-Glucan, Chenopodium Quinoa Seed Extract, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Magnesium Sulfate, Zinc Sulfate, Manganese Sulfate, Calcium Chloride, Potassium Alginate, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate / VP Copolymer, Polysorbate 20, Dimethicone, Dimethiconol, Dimethicone / Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Propanediol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Stearyl Behenate, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Hydroxypropyl Bispalmitamide MEA, Inulin Lauryl Carbamate, Alcohol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, Blue 1 (Ci 42090)

Have you tried these two products? Which do you prefer? I actually like them both but Laneige leaves my skin a little more supple. However, Lumene doubles as an instant and overnight mask. Sometimes I need an instant hydration boost and Lumene 's mask is perfect for that. So I tend to gravitate more to that plus it had double the product. You really can't go wrong with either.

What's The TREND? Tiny Sunglasses

All the 90's trends are back, chokers, platforms, fanny packs and more. This summer the retro sunglasses are what's hot. Now, this trend isn't for me cause I have a big ole face and they just don't look right on me. But they do look good on a lot of other people. I got Derria a pair for her birthday and they look great on her! If you are a person who loves tiny shades then you will enjoy the super cheap options below.

New Brands at Target: Wild Fable

Image result for wild fable logo
Late last year Target let us know that they would be phasing out some of their staple brands and reeling in new and improved ones. At first, I was very sad about the changes that would soon come but with all the newness and hotness I have seen thus far, this has to have been the best decision Target has ever made.

The most recent and upcoming release will be Wild Fable, said to be released tomorrow August 3!   Wild Fable is a women's brand that will include plus sizes. Size are from 0 to 26W. Items ranging from sunglasses to jumpsuits. 

The Target close to me actually had the line on display and for sale, so I was able to look at the quality of the pieces and try on some of the items that I was interested in buying. So far I have a plaid two piece and a super cute fanny pack!

The best thing about these super trendy and chic items is that nothing is over $40! A frugal Shopaholics dream! Get a sneak peak of Wild Fable NOW!

P.S. Items I'm eyeing are below!

Frugal Finds: Naked Wardrobe

When all else fails, its always a good move to buy basic items and style them to make them your own. Throw your own twist  into the game and walk with confidence. Naked Wardrobe is a basics brand, not for the faint at heart because it will  hug every  single curve you have but in a subtle but sexy way. They specialize in that Kim K/Yeezy wave. But as I mentioned these are items you have to style and put your own spin on so you don't blend in with the crowd.

Naked Wardrobe items range from $15-$60 and they carry everything from accessories to maternity apparel. Check out my faves  aka Frugal Finds below:

The Look for Less: Chanel Slingback

Ten points for Kaitlyn Pan with another bomb dupe! This time it's the classic Chanel beige and black slingback, Now these shoes aren't new at all, in fact, they are older than probably everyone reading this blog. But they continue to be a staple in their collections; its one of the most popular Chanel shoes of all time. I've always thought this shoe was just for the older ladies but the young girls are loving them too. I assume so many people love them because the colors go with all skin tone. 

Now, there are so many dupes and inspired looks made after this shoe but I've found the best one on Amazon for under $100. See them for yourself and check it out below!

What's The TREND? Utility Pants

When comes to clothes and shoes shopping, the top priority for me is COMFORT! I hate being restricted in the tummy area. I need freedom to drop it at any given moment.

June 2018 Frugal Finds: Lola Shoetique

This month's frugal finds come from an oldie but goodie, Lola Shoetique. Am I the only one who forgot about Lola Shoetique? I gotta admit, with stores like Ego and Simmi I completely forgot about Lola. I didn't even know they started selling clothes. They were the OG for designer shoe dupes. Some of our first posts featured their shoes. I haven't ordered from them in years but since my rediscovery of them, I have a few things on my list.
