Cyber Monday!

I'll try to snap some pics tonight of stuff that I picked up on Black Friday but here are some things I found for Cyber Monday :) I've never really partook in the American Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales but they seemed to have included us a bit more this year for these sales. I found some great deals on Cyber Monday at www.garage.ca of all places. One of my good friends bought me a hoodie for Christmas from there last year and it is my FAVORITE sweatshirt- definitely the nicest one I have ever owned. They had no shipping and 30% off everything so of course I had to pick up a few pieces ;). Here is what I purchased!:
Yay my favorite hoodie! This guy was $36.90 less 30% and no shipping WOOO! I love how the neckline is longer and it is a super soft fleece. It fits snug in the boobies and not skin tight on the stomach. LOVE!
I needed it in every color obvio.. I have it in a dark gray right now.
Never had a fuschia hoodie before. Fun!
How cute is this Christmas sweater?! We've been invited to a few tacky Christmas parties and although this isn't super cheesy I really love it! This guy was also $36.90 minus 30% :)
How cute is this little gray ruffle cardigan?! $15 on sale minus 30%.. Can't go wrong and you can never have enough cardigans ;)
Love the colors in this shirt... $7!
I never have perfume for my bag so I picked up a few of these roll--on perfumes on sale for $6.50 and then 30% off that. WOWZA!

Not really a product but a really neat idea. A "Memory Jar"... Add memories throughout the year and then read them on New Year's Eve.
I just really love this mmmkay?

An alarm clock you have to stand on to turn off. Brilliant.

I want to learn to do make up like THIS!

And my obsession with Pinterest continues. Here are some of my favorite make up techniques that are pinned on a daily basis... I really would like to take a make up course to learn how to do smoky eyes and stuff like that. I also need a far wider variety of make up colors in order to pull some of these off. There are also a TON of YouTube videos demonstrating various make up techniques and maybe these can provide some inspiration for you too!:
Looks like a peacock!
Bold! Love this for a ladies night out.
Nude smoky eye
Love the sparkle and I want her eyebrows!
SPARKLE HAIR!
These are called "oil slick eyes"
Smoky eye & nude lip
Great everyday make up... I don't tend to wear make up everyday at all though. I normally go to work fresh faced and if I am going for lunch or to a client's office I will put some make up on.
OMG! LOVE! These are my favorite colors to work with in art and when I paint too.
Subtle cat eye.... MEOW!
Mod lime green
Perfectly pink!
Fierce!
I'm a HUGE fan of red lips. So sexy~!
Unusual color combo.. I think it looks great!
SHINY

All I want to do is SHOP!

Is it the snow? The colder weather?! All I want to do is shop.. Online shop, window shop, +15 shop... Today I had a few spare minutes to do just that. Poor James hasn't had any new clothes for quite a while and is REALLY sick of his wardrobe so I hit up the Banana Republic sale for 25% off the last ticketed price.. Banana Republic is easily my favorite store and most of my wardrobe is from there. I never buy anything regular price and always scoop super great deals on their daily sales and outlet locations such as the one at Deerfoot Meadows. Here is what I picked up today!
Basic T on sale for $9!!! I like the double v-neck.. and the price
Baggy striped sweater with sparkly silver thread as stripes. This is SO comfortable and I snagged it for only $17!!! Regular $74.. What a rip I wouldn't pay that!
SoOo comfy and not formfitting.. I need a few more big sweaters for winter ;)
Like my chapeau?! I picked it up from Purr last season for $25! I am a sucker for hats and it's nice when you don't feel like doing your hair... Which is like everyday for me.
This was SUCH a good deal for only $29 from $110 and it is sooo soft. It doesn't have any buttons or anything but I love the color and ruffled edges which I think will go with a lot of my work wardrobe. Yay!
I snagged this for James for only $11 from $45.
White linen for $20. I love their men's dress shirts
Can't wait to see James in this one ;) ... $24 from $95!
I splurged and got James this "Belgrade" dress shirt from Guess.. He is going to look HOT! hehe.
