Movie-Inspired Cinderella Costume for Princess M

There’s nothing better than receiving this FREE beautiful Movie-Inspired Cinderella costume from costume discounters website in exchange of my honest opinion.

Firstly, Princess M feels like she is a princess and for that, when I told her a couple of weeks ago that I ordered a Cinderella costume just for her, she got really excited and happy. I can only imagine the child’s feelings when she found that out and couldn’t wait for it to arrive and try it on but I tried to stop her because I know for sure once she takes it out of the package, she wouldn’t want to take it off.

So, my review for this dress took so long for I have waited for Halloween trick or treat night to take pictures of her. Here’s one of those that I really like with a great pose with the dress about to go start trick or treating in the neighborhood last night.

My Princess M really adored the sparkling dress. It came with a petticoat that makes the dress to look full! It is of great quality and it really sparkles making her feel gorgeous last night for the Halloween. Thank you Costume Discounters for this awesome dress you sent to our Princess.

Costume discounters by the way is a great website to be shopping for costumes of any event. They got tons to choose from. For male, female, boys. girls, or even 0-toddlers. Please check them out guys, promise you will love the selection they have for your little ones or for yourself.

Princess M Likes to Dress Up

This is one of those days when my Princess M likes to look beautiful and dressing up good. She chose to wear that little rainbow dress of hers going to Goodwill. And then, she saw this very cute pink and black tutu skirt there for just $1.99, I did not hesitate buying it for her since it fits very well on her and the price is reasonable. As soon as we got home that day, she wore the tutu skirt right away and did not take it off.

So here she is in the picture, looking cute and feeling like a fairy with her outfit. I asked her to wear tights though because I did not want her panties to show. Gladly, the white tights complimented with her dress and skirt. I don’t mind dressing up my two Princesses for I want them to look good, wear good clothes as long as we can afford to buy them for our girls.

Growing up poor, I did not have nice clothes. I could not have everything I want due to the lack of budget. But now, there are plenty of ways to save on clothing and a husband who works hard for his family, I make sure I buy things for our girls that I didn’t have as a young child.

Gymboree Hi-Low Stripes Dress for $12.99

Okay, so I told myself that there will be no buying of new girls’ dresses for a while for they still got plenty of new dresses with tags hanging in the closet especially the big Princesses but seeing these beautiful dresses seemed like it was hard to say no because they were affordable the time I went to Gymboree in the mall two days ago.

Store promo is everything is $12.99 and under, for a such a pretty dress like that with good quality material, why would I let it slip through my hands? To think that I also had a 20% off entire purchase coupon on hand that day? I got these dresses for $10 plus tax each. Hats were on sale for $6.99 and down to a dollar each but I can probably find something cheaper than that in Old Navy or other stores so I might have to return them if I do.

Too bad though they are out of size ten of this dress, I could have bought one for myself so we will be matching three together. I would be cool!

Beautiful Fuchsia Dress for her 4th Birthday

I bought this dress yesterday at Macy’s in the mall but she was the one who picked it. I did not argue her judgment because the dress is truly beautiful in actual, its fuchsia and it looks perfect for her complexion. The price is reasonable so I bought it along with her sister’s clothes.

This morning as soon as she got back home from taking her big sister to school, she asked me to put it on her which I wholeheartedly did. She then was so amused of herself, feeling like a Princess, spinning, turning and whatever fun things she did just to make the most of the beautiful dress. She even asked me several times, “mommy, do you like my dress? Do I look pretty, mommy?”

Of course my girl, you are so pretty and undeniably gorgeous! Whether you wear a dressy dress or in your house clothes, messy or clean… my girls are the most beautiful and the cutest in my eyes.

Princess M’s Christmas Presents from Her Godmother

Christmas presents Princess M that she got from her Godmother Sheryl are too cute and girly. Thanks to her for not forgetting my little Princess this year. She gave her a pair of Princess pink sleepwear, a set of nail polishes and a little Princess play-doh.

They are so cute that the Princess love them so much and are now enjoying painting her nails and wearing the sleepwear. Not only Sheryl remembers her Godchild but J as well. As always we are appreciative of the blessings that come our way.

That Pretty Red Coat I so Wanted to Buy at Macy’s is in My Hands Now!

I know a pretty coat that will look good for my girls when I see one. Last Black Friday sale at Macy’s I saw this classy fleece red hooded coat for my first born. I fell in love with it but couldn’t buy it at that time for I thought it was too much to be paying for. I spent quite sometime in children’s coat department and couldn’t take my eyes off it. In that end, I walked away from there empty-handed. I went home and couldn’t get over how beautiful that red coat is.

Days have passed, I moved on and bought a trench hooded coat at Gymboree online. It was half off plus free shipping, I loved it but it pained me I wasn’t able to use my 20% off coupon and $5 certificate I earned, I paid $25 plus tax for that coat but had returned it. I was thinking, it wouldn’t worth keeping if I am feeling dissatisfied with it. So anyway, I returned it to the store yesterday.

I went to Macy’s afterwards and visited the children’s department area again where that red coat is. Voila! There are still plenty of coats are still available including the one I fell in love with last Black Friday. I scanned the item and rang up $30, last time I scanned it, it was $36 more. I thought $30 was still high for a coat but I had a store coupon of $20 on $50 worth of items. I used it and bought two other items for my first born.

Guess what? I made the coat to come down to $18! I am the happiest shopper ever. Total of three items after $20 off is $32.89 including tax. That isn’t bad knowing that I took home three items with that price.

I am glad I waited for Macy’s ONE DAY SALE instead of buying the coat last Black Friday. Otherwise, I might have returned it.

That red coat that I so wanted to buy is in my hands now. Photo doesn’t look pretty but it is in actual. It is deep red with hoodie. It feels warm, soft and comfortable on the skin. My first born prefers wearing long coats rather than those puffers for it keeps her warm down to her mid thighs.

Black Friday Shopping at Gymboree

I wasn’t planning of going to the mall today because I didn’t want to go through the hassle of bumping into the crowd, as expected, the parking lot was packed and yes, people were flooding in the mall. We finished early from a store just outside our village and I still had time to maybe take advantage of Black Friday deals before 2 pm ended so I went there anyway and brought with me that MK watch I bought online that didn’t like to return it. In tow with me were my girls of course.

Anyway, at the mall, although sales were left and right, I only spent maybe $20 including our food at the food court. I believe I got deals at Gymboree. 4 pieces of merchandise that only total at $14.26 including tax. They had 50% entire store promo and an additional 20% off coupon on hand that made it down to that amount. I was looking for that Khaki trench coat at their store but it isn’t available there so when I got home, I got to their online store and purchase a beautiful Large size hoodied trench coat for Princess J. Got it for 50% off at $25 tax included  plus free shipping and 1% cash back on ebates.

You might wonder why these clothes are all for the big Princess. I know it is a bit unfair for the little Princess for I don’t normally buy her new clothes since she can wear all her big sister’s outgrown clothes. In my mind, it wouldn’t be practical buying the little new clothes so often and nobody would wear them once they get too small for her.

… I learned my lesson to just buy a trench coat for her so she won’t feel too cold compared to buying her just the usual puffer coat that won’t cover much of her body. Trench coats not only they are practical but also stylish and fashionable, do you agree?

Me and My Dollie

I feel blessed and the luckiest on earth for having two girls instead of two boys. No offense to those who have boys though. It is because, with girls, I can dress them up with matching attire and buy them the cutest trendy and most fashionable stuff available.

Aside from that, I will have girls that will share the same interests as me, shopping for clothes, beauty products and perfumes. Also, in some occasions, we can wear the same outfit together like the one pictured below. This isn’t the first time I dressed like my girls.

I garnered at least 77 photo likes on Facebook for this one. Maybe a lot of them finds this shot cute. This was taken during my dual citizenship last weekend and it just happened I found a dress just like mine that fits for my little Princess. With no hesitations I picked it up and paid for I knew I can find an occasion or event where we can dress up the same together.

Cute Finds at the Thriftstore

Four days after not being able to go out the house, I found myself and the girls at McCart Thrift store today. I was able to find really cute and new clothing and curtains today at a fraction of a price. I bought 4 panels of curtains, 2 table cloths which miraculously fit for our 5-seater table and 4 clothing for my first born.

All 4 pieces of clothing pictured below totalled $21.79, two of which had their original tag in them, I love the Hello Kitty denim dress the most, it is slightly used I think but still looking new, no rips, tears or stains. She will be looking cute wearing it in Fall which I cannot wait.

Will be going back to the store on Sunday because my purchase today over $50 qualifies me for a 50% off entire purchase. It would be nice if I can find another cute stuff there, who knows.

Girl’s Summer Flip Flops Under $1

If you are heading to the mall today, don’t forget to stop by at The Children’s Place and grab your girls a pair or two of these attractive printed summer flip flops for under $1. They are on sale for $1.99, the solid colors for $1 but with the use of a code: 138, you can get it down to $1.69 for printed and just 89 cents for solids. Solid flops while supplies last, so you must hurry!

There is also another thing that I did not plan of buying but when my 6-year old Princess saw it at the store, she couldn’t stop bugging me to buy it for her, the sunglasses case with handle that makes it a little purse to carry everywhere. It is 50% off store price plus the 15% off which makes it down to $2.95. Such a little thing that gives big joy to her heart that she showered me with “I love yous” until now.
