Collective Haul (Picture HEAVY)

So for some reason I’ve been feeling really down – about myself and my life. I know this is something a lot of people go through, but I don’t think these same people have a shopping addiction like I do. So whenever I get upset, I turn to shopping as a form of therapy – Retail Therapy. Over the holiday weekend I decided to drive to the Osage Beach Premium Outlet Mall, which is 172 miles from my front door, LOL!!! I took off a day of work, picked up my best friend, and in two ½ hours we were shopping.

I got a LOT of stuff that day and wanted to show you what I got, and maybe then you can understand the level of my problem.

Coach: They were having a really awesome sale. Most of the purses were marked down about 50%, then they were running a sale which took off another 50% and on top of all that they were running a promotion were you could take another 30% off. I think they run great sales like this every holiday, but I was really excited about it.

I got this coral patent leather one:

And this fun flower one:

The Cosmetic Company Outlet:
I got sooo much stuff from here. When I was picking out the different colors it didn’t seem like much, but I would put it on the counter and didn’t realize how much I got until I heard the total.

I got…

Four Lipsticks and 3 Lips Glosses:

Color Me Coral, Full Fushia, Intricate

Color Me Coral is a frost lipstick.

Full Fuchsia is an amplified lipstick

I LOVE shopping at Marshalls, especially for accessories. I think Jessica Simpson shoes are too cute and usually they are really comfortable. In fact the most comfortable heals I own are Jessica Simpson. They usually have a large selection in clearance too.

Then I got two pairs of Capri pants, I just took a picture of the pockets to show you.

I got these fabulous sunglasses, yea they are Jessica Simpson LOL!

I know I know – more Jessica Simpson shoes. But these were on clearance, plus I had a coupon so I only paid like $18 for them and I thought they were too cute!

Nine West:

They were running a sale “Buy 1, Get 1 ½ off!” So of course I had to get two pairs!


Ahhh my heaven, enough said.

I got OPI Blue Shatter, OPI Turquoise Shatter, OPI Grape…Set…Match, OPI Serving Up Sparkle, Ulta Smoothie in Tangerine, EOS in Honeysuckle Honeydew and Summer Fruit

And I didn't take other pictures - not sure why?!?!?


This store was kinda cool. All of there products react to UV light (the sun or UV lights). They were running a sale “Buy 3, Get 1 Free!” so we each got 2. I'll be doing swatched as sharing later!


I seen these and thought they were too cute! They were on sale for $19.99 and I had $10 in Kohl’s cash, so they cost me $10 WooHoo!!

So that’s everything. I will probably not be able to shop for a while so it might be time to work on the setting of my camera and start doing some looks LOL!!!! If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Also, I will probably be putting in a lot of OT to pay for it all as well – so I might not be around that much. (So instead of 60 hr weeks, I’ll be working 70 or 80?!?!?! NO WAY!!!!!!) Also, please don't think in any way I'm bragging, just showing you what I got and if you like maybe you could go get some of these items...

Hope you all have a fabulous day!

Love, Foxy

WoW! I thought I was bad. You outdid me! You got some great stuff. I love the first coach purse you got. So cute! Hope your feeling better. I hate the rough patches in life =(

I am majorly jealous, I have to say! I love everything you got (my feet are too wide for Jessica Simpson shoes which stinks because I do love them). I love it all!! I don't think there's anything terribly wrong with getting some new stuff to make oneself feel a little better! I do hope you're feeling better though!

Amalia J said...

Wow! Fabulous hauls but did I miss a holiday??? oh no! what an awesome deal on Coach bags but very curious what were you able to get them for but totally understand if you dont want to share :)

Agreed. There's nothing wrong with a little "Retail therapy" to pick your mood up. I hope you feel better soon! And I love all of the things you purchased! Great haul!

@ Miranda: I told you it was bad LOL! I thought it was a fun purse, so I just had to get it. I don’t know why. I was in a car accident a year ago and gained weight, but I can’t get it off. I think that has a lot to do with it and I can hide behind my accessories and makeup LOL!!

@Starry, PrettyinPink & Meme: Thank you!

@ Amalia: It was 4th of July  Actually since they were having a sale I was able to get both for under $200 – so not that bad.
