Markdown Mondays

This Back in Brisbane dress can be found at for $48.99(Originally $69.99).  It's very basic but whenever I look at this website, this dress keeps catching my eye.  It's one I could be wearing over and over again.  Throw on different jackets for different looks. Black leather jacket, nude cardigan, etc.  Also the waist is very flattering, I can see lots of belts belonging here.

This Jocelyn Satchel was found at Shop Suey boutique.  It is marked down to $29.99(originally $58).  I haven't ordered from this place yet but many of the handbags come with youtube videos so you can see inside, the size, etc.  I find this a very unique and useful feature of this shop.  This bag is an easy one to throw on with any print or basic in any season.  I have made a vow to myself to only buy satchels from now on because I love the hands-free shoulder strap option. 

As a person who does not wear perfume, body spray, or scented anything, let me tell you about this product.  This is a cucumber melon triple moisture body cream.  I love this scent because it smells natural and actually calms me.  There are so many fragrances that i'm sure you will find one that suits you just as I have.  As a nursing student, I intern at several hospitals and wash my hands about 50 times per day.  Therefore, my hands get super dry.  I have been using this lotion at night and my hands have improved dramatically. There is a deal going on at Bath and Body works. If you buy 3 products, you get 2 free.  They have this triple moisture body cream, regular body lotion, bath wash, body spray, etc in this scent and many many others. Basically you can get 5 products for about $30 (originally $50).

First off, let me apologize for this tiny image.  You don't know how long i've been sitting here trying to make it work.  I'm kind of computer illiterate and i'm getting frustrated so i'll just take the L on this one.  Anyway, I didn't want to leave this K-Dash by Kardashian Cape with Pull-through belt out.  Charles hates me for this but I like the Kardashians.  I watched them live on QVC this weekend and the spring collection has improved so much since their last collection.  This is my favorite piece and I am eyeing it in the darker cognac color since I already have a khaki colored trench coat similar to the color above!  You can throw this over anything and it instantly becomes stylish.  Jeans and a T just got chic! I'm loving this!  My fav of the day!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day.  The weather was so wonderful today.  Charles and I had a nice home cooked meal and he made me the best handmade card.  I'll share pics later.  G night and happy shopping!

P.S. Let me know if you purchase anything from Markdown Mondays.  I'll post a pic of you and your new closet addition.(And a link to your blog if you have one) :-) 

P.P.S. Do people still use p.p.s'? I think the last time I've seen it was in middle school when I was writing notes to my bff and putting in her locker between classes.  Anyway, when I reach 20 blog followers i'm going to be doing a giveaway! So get ready to enter to win!
