5 Tips For Shopping

  1. High End

Now we all know that brand names can be very expensive and out of the price range for many. Especially college students like myself. But when I am shopping at the mall, that doesn’t stop me from going into some of my favorite brand names stores. I thought I’d share with you a more recent experience. So I needed some new jeans, just because it was time for some new ones. So I went to the store most women my age go for some new jeans, Pacsun, Hollister, and American Eagle. All of which are some of my favorite places to shop but decided against buying jeans from them this time. So Finally before leaving I went into BeBe, one of my favorite brand name stores. Just my luck they were having a sale on jeans at 50%, so I was able to buy a pair of pants for the same price I was planning to pay for a pair of American Eagle. Which of course is preferred especially when you are talking about longevity and quality. To make a long story short, don’t be afraid to walk into some of your high end stores, because you may just find a fabulous deal.



  1. You don’t always need a Partner

I know we always tend to go shopping with someone, but I don’t always like it. Just for the simple fact sometimes I feel rushed, or if the person doesn’t like the stores that I enjoy shopping at, then I can be more “free” just to take my time going through stores and going to all of the places I enjoy going to. So occasionally I like to go shopping by myself, just because I can be able to take my time look around well.


  1. Try It On

I need to follow this advice more when I go shopping, as I am not a big fan of going in the dressing room to try on an outfit. Which has resulted in me buying something and it not fitting well or looking how I want it to when I get home. Save yourself the time and trip and try on whatever you are going to buy to make sure it looks good


  1. Keep An Open Mind

This is something I have more recently started doing, instead of going for styles or makeup colors I would normally get or makeup colors I have tried venturing from that. With wonderful result as well, being able to open yourself to new styles can open up variety and you can discover something that looks great that you would have never tried otherwise. So when I go shopping I try to pick up things that I have never worn before to see if I would like it or not.

  1. Coupons!

Nearly every time I go into the mall or a specific store, I check to see if they have any sales going on or if they have special coupons online. I create app that I use is called shopular, you can add most the store that you enjoy shopping at. One things that is helpful is that it sends you notifications only when you are near the store, if that store has a sale or coupons. So this helps save some dinero especially when shopping on a budget.

Girl Code: Sistas Before Mistas


I know this a bit different then what I normally write about, but I was inspired recently! I was out having fun with some of my girlfriends and guys keep trying to “talk” to us, then I came up with an idea to write about some basic girl codes, nearly all girlfriends have!

  1. Please don’t leave me alone!
    1. This is what I think is creepy, lol we come out to have a good time with each other! so no girl is left behind!! If so who know who is going to talk to them and and try to hit on them, with no not to rescue them! Also theres always the chance of getting separated!!
  2. Be Honest
    1. We have have our group/single girlfriends(boyfriends) that we trust and share everything with, that’s why we’re friends duh. But if my hairs messed up, food in my teeth, or if you think my shirt is on inside out, please let me know. We’re all here to depend on each other and look out for each other
  3. Creepy Guys are a No Go!
    1. If you see a guy is trying to talk to me/ hit on me and I give you “the look” Im asking you to come to the rescue!! Pull me away or something! I cannot tell you how many times this has happened to me! 90% of the time my girlfriends have gotten the hit and came to pull me away from the guy, but very few times I tried my best to turn the guy down, which I am very bad at!!
  4. Girls Night Are A Must
    1. every now and then you need a break from school, work, your boyfriend or husband, and hanging out with the ladies are always a good time and a stress reliever, and helps you talk about situations you’ve got going on, or just someone there to hear you out. If you and your girlfriends don’t have a girls night out I would highly suggest it! It’s always the best!!

Thats just a few girl codes that I have with my girlfriends, definitely not what everyone does, but I suggest it! And I love sharing! If you like post along these lines(lifestyle type). Please let me know and I’ll do more in the future! Thanks for Reading
