Retail Therapy Is Still Effective

This is a very impromptu post, because my morning started off on a bad note. First of all, I woke up in a sweat, because it was super humid in my bedroom. Next, I recently took in my neighbors puppy to find him a new home, which has been adjustment. However, he’s leaving today. Finally, my BF was in ugly mood that I felt he was trying to push over to me. So, I had to push it back, because I can’t deal with that. After grabbing a large cup of iced coffee with 2 shots of espresso on the way to work, I started to feel a little better. However, my mood became a bucket of sunshine when I saw that Shopbop was having a 3 day sale on sale items. Let the retail therapy commence!

STAINED COUTURE | Retail Therapy Day

I picked up a couple of item, which were mainly shoes. My summer shoe game has been mostly flip flops and that needed to change. However, while digging around, I saw some things that I feel like you needed to know about. The sale is 25% off sale items, which means most of this stuff will be gone in a flash.

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2017: for Creative Children

I mentioned in my holiday gift guide 2017 for men, that I have the hardest time picking out gifts for men. After men, children can be the hardest to shop for, in my opinion. It can be hard trying not to buy a gift that the parent already bought. Also, trying to find that’s a little outside the box can be difficult, too. Thankfully, I only have a couple of kids to shop for this year. However, they all seem to be very creative and love to explore new things. So, this gift guide is dedicated to gifts for fun and creative kids.
