Post Christmas Thrift

Happy New Year everyone! Well… 2nd day of the new year! I hope everyone’s was safe and fun (:
In my previous post, I said I’d post on my most recent thrift so here it goes….

Family Thrift Center, Virginia Beach, Va
I thrift a lot with my mom so December 26th she said let’s go so she took me to this place. I didn’t take much pics inside as it was crowded as Hell. Here’s what I got:

image

Upon my arrival, I noticed no signs anywhere indicating there were any sales going on like how Goodwill and Salvation army have tag color sales. It was over stuffed and the aisles made me feel like I was going to have a nose bleed. Mom said “give it a chance and check around”… Well ma it’s kinda hard when you’re getting hit by other people pushing carts -. –

image

I did notice they had “categories “such as this one as well as a “skate &  surf” rack containing brands like Volcom and Hurley. This rack in particular had like 4 items and we’re definitely dated and you could tell why they were there. The skate and surf racks were super stuffed, it was so hard to go through.

Let’s talk pricing…
At Pacsun you’d be able to find a brand new tee on sale for $15. Why the hell would I get a used one for $10 here??  The “boutique”  clothing seriously ranged from $15-$60 and 85% didn’t even have tags. Yeah the pricing in general made me ask myself who the hell would spend that much at a thrift store for items you’d be able to get cheaper at somewhere like Plato’s Closet even especially because they pre-sort the shitty out of the group for you. The racks have separate pricing ranging from normal and dropping down to 99 ¢ and trust me, I checked those first and could see why they were on that rack as well.
Housewares was a mess and had half melted  candles  missing wicks for $7… I’ve found 50¢ full candles at Habitat thrift so hell no.

On a random note, this is one thing I found and literally lol’d at

Destiny's child camera case

                            Damn I shoulda bought it!

Now, let’s skip all of the bs I went through and get to the stuff that I thought was actually worth buying!

image

I have no idea what drew me to this Hound’s tooth blazer. It’s reversible with red inside (which there’s no way In hell I’d wear it that way).

BRAND: unknown
PRICE: $5

Merrell Wynne dress

This to me was my best find of that night! After some research, I found out it’s a Merrell Wynne Dress. I’ve always known Merrell was known for “adventure” shoes for hiking and stuff but never knew they made dresses. To my surprise, it was priced at $75 retail not on sale and I got it for $10 with tags. I’ve never had a dress with moisture wicking inner slip and kimono sleeves o_o Yeah , I had to have it for summer or warmer spring days!

BRAND: Merrell
PRICE: $10

image

image

My mom originally told me not to get this because it’s make me look old buuuuut Idk what drew me to this dress either. Most possibly it was the detail of the upper portion.

BRAND: Mark
PRICE: $4

image

This is more of a summer dress if you had to put it into a category other than underwear which it isn’t. Yeah yeah, it looks it but it ain’t. I’ve never heard of the brand Lucy Love though but that’s the wonderful part of thrifting.

BRAND:Lucy Love
PRICE: $3

image

2 inches short of being a dress so this will be paired with leggings since it covers my butt

BRAND: Julie’s Closet
PRICE: $2

image

The top and bottoms were thrifted that day. The top is a no sleeve. I’m generally not a polka dot, ruffle type of person but the tie up top is what sold me! I was searching for spring and summer bottoms and I couldn’t understand why shorts were priced around $7 and up. However, the capris I found were shoved between a different rack and I’m pretty happy I found them. I’m not much of a Capri person either but I figured it’d go well with a few things I own so I paired it with that top.  Those wedges were not thrifted as they were in clearance from Wet Seal.

TOP BRAND: Old Navy
PRICE: $2
CAPRI BRAND: Old Navy
PRICE: $2

Black wrap watch

Everytime I’m in the jewelry area, it’s intoxicated with dead battery items and  crappy costume jewelry. On my way out, I saw this and was surprised as Hell for it to still be ticking and even have the correct time! It’s real leather however, I have no idea about the rest of it. It’s a Japanese  quartz though (as my boyfriend who has an extensive and expensive watch collection featuring citizens and his newest Motorola smart watch told me).  The back says it’s stainless steel and the brand on the front is so tiny, I can’t make it out.

BRAND: unknown
PRICE: $2

image

The boyfriend and I’s new year collage ; I wore that top for eve due to the fact that us Asians like to think stripes rep dollars and polka dots rep coins soo there ya go!

I apologize for the scanty post but I know I keep saying I’ll post more and I will!
Thanks for stopping by!

Japanese Gothic Lolita Doll Cosplay

Well, I did say I was going to be posting out of order since it’s been forever :)I ended up dressing up on Halloween at work.For all of you haters, NOPE none of this cosplay is any of your fancy shmancy lolita wear. I pieced it together myself so…HATE ON ❤

Everything aside from le undies,umbrella, hosiery and top-hat were thrifted.

“Dress”- Pulled up laced skirt with lace long sleeve up top.

Plato’s Closet Grab Bag Event 7/13/13:Crazy as shit.Nuff Said.

2013-07-13_09-53-03_212

Every time I’m supposed to go to this, something comes up.

Well, if my friend Steph didn’t excite me and continuously text me and call me to get my ass up and go, I wouldn’t have gone lol.So, THANKS STEPH!<3

For those of you who don’t know what the hype is all about:

1 Brown bag $15- You fill it up with as much clearance items as possible (stamped with like 50% off in red)

Otherwise, the whole store is 10% off.

2013-07-13_10-07-03_681We went to the Plato’s in Virginia Beach, Va. Yes, I expected it to be packed but not AS packed as it actually was.

Here’s a little taste of the chaos (ooh Taste of Chaos<3)

2013-07-13_11-04-55_341 2013-07-13_10-45-02_644 2013-07-13_10-44-59_596Ya damn right I picked all I could  AND THEN tried to stuff the bag on the floor. Did it work out? Hell yes.

Le bf came up to me and was like “well..instead of getting another bag, how about you fill the rest of mine?” SCOREEEEE

2013-07-13_11-45-38_541 2013-07-13_11-25-11_533We stood in the maze of a line (which it seemed like 5 lines were conjoining) for hours. Yes, hours. Was it hot as hell in there with all of that sweaty shopping enthusiasts? Yup. Can’t complain TOO much…one of the staff were passing out paper plates for self fanning lol THANKS GIRL AT VA BEACH PLATO’S CLOSET!

2013-07-13_11-45-48_367

Well there goes my fan =/2013-07-13_12-23-12_125 2013-07-13_12-28-11_207 2013-07-13_12-40-16_690 2013-07-13_12-40-22_429 2013-07-13_12-42-07_476

Thanks b for carrying the bags! I was shocked he offered only because everyone was irritated yet he waiting patiently with us<3 Love you!

2013-07-13_12-45-12_399

Just realizing Steph and I were both wearing Mary Janes, figured it’d be a pic moment…however B stuck his foot in and whilephoto-bombing he said “YOLO” -__-

2013-07-13_12-49-30_3

Even though it was scary as hell to see him do this due to the fear of the bags ripping and me being the “fuck it meme” in real life, innovation is always at it’s best with us lol
2013-07-13_12-54-15_13 2013-07-13_12-57-04_589 2013-07-13_13-02-02_808

I thought it was pretty innovative to stuff my stuff in the bag that was in the brown bag lol

So thankfully I had cash. All we heard was

“WHO’S GOT CASH?!-Staff

“WHY HUH?!?!”-Me

“COME OVER TO THIS REGISTER!”-Staff

“SHORTER LINE?!?!”-Me

“YUP COME ON”-Staff

“STEPH, B, I GOT THIS, LEZGOOOO!!!!!!!!”-Me

2013-07-13_13-06-20_237

Although people were lying about our “group”(and when I say group I mean us and the nice 3-5 people behind and in front of us)

cutting ahead, we made it out alive. Hella people were cutting and even talking shit out loud like they worked there. But shit, we’re alive and well thrifted.

HOOLLLLERRRLUUJAHHH

Pictured things that I got lucky with

And to every staff member that has ever worked a Plato’s Closet Grab Bag Event, may you be blessed and hopefully you got paid time & 1/2 for all of that bullshit you had to clean up.

Just thought I had to add this lol

Recent Thrift Haul : Discounts of DOOOOM

Sadly, DAVs doesn’t have normal discount days like other stores do and I went to the Chesapeake, Va DAV day before 4th of July….aka on a Wednesday aka the day I SHOULD be at Salvation Army for 50% off day *sigh* HOWEVER….

2013-07-03_19-51-41_7322013-07-03_19-51-31_267

Saw this as I was leaving at their “boutique” section and contemplated for 10 seconds if it was fake or not o.O

2013-07-03_18-40-06_610

Yes. Brand new from Steinmart. However….I wouldn’t wear something that looks like the sewing machine were vomiting old bobbins.

2013-07-03_18-53-53_195

Almost every DAV I’ve been too has their racks way too packed. I had the hardest time to sift through jeans and because they close their fitting rooms early it sucks..

Yes, Yes. I had a “thrift outfit” on to be able to try over. HOWEVER, again, area was too packed.2013-07-03_19-06-41_923 2013-07-03_19-35-51_567 2013-07-03_18-18-16_671 2013-07-03_18-16-27_996 2013-07-03_18-14-54_915

Confession…I spent $2 on this because it has aminal buttons..Don’t judge me -_-

2013-07-03_20-51-23_493

Okay Okay before I get bitched at…I thought about this long long long and hard hard hard. Yes, at first I was completely disgusted in thought. I’ve always told myself NO NO NO to shit like this thrifted. I couldn’t get over the cuteness of this because I’m tired of 2 piece bikinis and like monokinis better. This one to me just stuck out and I couldn’t help myself. It’s been through the wash a few times. A few more to go before I get myself to wear it >.>2013-07-03_20-51-48_159

Oh lawd….I fell in love the moment I laid my eyes on these. I’ve been looking for Mary Janes like these for a while. They’re clog styled which stuck out the most 🙂

Out of all of my thrift hauls, that is actually the most I’ve spent in a LONNGGGG ass time thrifting…But shit it was worth it!

Happy thrifting!!!

I’ve also been going to the gym (Planet Fitness) every other day…well unless I’ve done something strenuous already, then that constitutes me not going. Call me a slacker, idgaf. I’ve been on my journey for a month and a half so far. I’ll get there eventually. I’m not quitting just because it’s going slow. Call me a fatass once I’ve stopped.

The top (Head) And shorts (Jockey) came from TJ Maxx in that above picture with the cart. I usually wear Nikes or Reeboks  to work out but you see those purple and grey kicks? They were $14 at Walmart (Danskin) and have been working just fine. For you sneaker heads who are probably like “OMFG EW WALMART SHOES”…..BITCH PLEASE STFU. You act like all of the things you own are SOOOO different. Little do people know but some places (Factories/Manufacturers) actually make all the same shit and just mark em with different labels so I don’t wanna hear/read it. *Takes a deep breath* kay I’m good.2013-05-08_13-43-27_28That right there, is me at work . I was on my way to make something with One Wrap…did I want to take a whole bunch of shit with me and possibly drop everything between my pudgy fingers? Nope. This is how I deal with some thangs. One Wrap weave stuck on me FTMFW!

So that’s it for now people! I’ve had a little more time for thrifting recently so I’ll post up soon. I’ve taken another part time job so I haven’t had much time for shit. I now have the new Galaxy Tab 2 7″ so maybe I’ll be able to post faster without having to get on the comp and do all kindsa thangs that’ll just sidetrack me (Gaming, Steam, TeamSpeak, FB, you know, everything)

For all of you who haven’t unfollowed me (or just haven’t gave a damn) Thank you!

Happy blogging in le blogosphere!

2013-03-31_21-17-13_476

Big Lots. These are usually $1 but why not save 5 cents?

2013-03-31_18-23-27_896

Boyfriend has been looking for this specific bed liner everywhere as stores at the moment do not carry this anymore. We found it at Big Lots and he went Ape Shiz.
2013-03-30_18-21-08_794

Again, at Big Lots. This…just creeped me out lol

2013-03-30_18-09-55_815@ Big lots. I didn’t buy any of it due to the fact that it was all the same color =/

2013-03-30_18-37-54_706

While we were driving through Newport News, Virginia (45 mins away from me VB)

Thought this was one of the coolest used/brand new shops I’ve ever been to. I love the name because I always said if I ever opened a thrift shop up, I’d name it this but oh well lol they beat me to it!

They had LOTS of brand new and high end stuff! Check em’ out if you’re ever near NN!

2013-03-30_19-09-05_60

LOL I thought this was the funniest thing. May be it’s wrong to laugh at it but I couldn’t help it. Thriftin’ weeeeavess.

2013-04-01_18-27-38_771Boyfriend got this for $5 at DAV and a couple of others that I don’t have pictured. I got a The Limited dress from DAV as well but I’ll have to hem it a little and I’ll post it up later (you know..if I ever have the time)

2013-03-30_20-55-35_812

We went to TGI Fridays that night. See that flat head? I LOVE short and fat things…I took that from my boyfriend and have been keeping it in my purse…I now take pics of it everywhere I go. He knows I “tool napped” it because we were driving and I pulled it out and he was like OMG I KNEW IT!

That’s a “Grey Goose Chiller” and it was frickin’ fantastic.

2013-03-30_20-55-46_788

foursquare_photo_tmpZomg Food Coma FTW. If any of you haven’t tried the Jack Daniel’s sampler from TGI THEN GO GO GO.

Bf has been pouting all week how we didn’t order the pot stickers -.- Anyone know if they’re good from TGI? LMK!

2013-03-31_12-26-17_309

Went to church for easter 🙂 Asked for forgiveness a bajillion times in my silence >.> HAPPY BELATED JESUS PULLED A RES DAY!
2013-03-31_12-25-32_549

I thought this was appropriate to take a picture of when everyone was “Praising” and singing. I coughed and my mom  sent these to me through other people passing it on and the one I opened happened to say this during the “PRAISE THE LORD” moments lol

2013-03-31_09-43-13_260Sadly, I don’t have my dress pictured because it got deleted but these were the wedges I wore. I call them my Alice In Wonderland wedges lol. Ain’t nothin’ fancy, just PayLess.

After church, we ended up searching through Big Lots and Dollar Tree for more cheapsy finds  and ate Mongolian BBQ for lunch. Then ended the night with going to Cinema Cafe to watch Hansel and Gretel (which was FREAKIN’ AWESOME)

So Far This Week

Whoever told you that Tetris doesn’t do anything for the real world IS A LIAR. I use Tetris Tactics each and every day!
2013-04-01_14-52-26_794

Lol Made it out of scrap paper… I was hungry -_- my fat ass is always hungry.
2013-04-03_15-44-49_816

I really hope to be posting more but it really depends on my time. I’m sure you all know how that goes. As always I thank all of my followers 🙂

I’m hoping for a good weekend this weekend and if so, I’ll be posting some stuff up. I hope to be posting some possible DIY and Nail tutorials in the near future when I have the time 🙂 Vids too!

For now, I’ll end this post with the nail design I JUST did while loading all of this stuffs up and letting them dry 🙂

2013-04-04_20-31-54_254

All $1 each. No it’s not high end but it works. Needed some blues so picked these up after work.

2013-04-04_20-59-15_373

This is how I generally test colors.

2013-04-04_21-39-48_97End Product 🙂

Where the hell has Confection1nfection been? Part 2

ImageSo the ending of my birthmas fandom, this is just going to be a post related to whatever random things I’ve been up to.

This is a ring holder my sister inlaw got. At their house, they have an elephant next to their sink to put their rings when washing dishes. Each time I came over there I got super excited and even thought about jacking it a couple of times (yeah right from my own bro’s house? that’s just wrong! Well, we’ll say BORROWING lol). My sis inlaw heard me squeal over that shit multiple times and BAM I got one! 

ImageThese cute ass mugs have been in my mom’s Altima’s trunk for about a month or two. I got these for 75cents each while on a Salvo’s Wednesday trip. Shit it’s Wednesday right now and if I wasn’t sick as fuck and looking like I cried for years on end while my muscles were all achy breaky then I’d be thrifting atm -_- I’ve already missed a couple of days at work. I’ve been sleeping all damn week and I woke up earlier choking and now I can’t go back to sleep so hell, why not finish this big ass update on me eh? Anyway, back to these cute ass mugs! So the main reason why I got them is because of the ridged indents on the side for le fingers and of course, the beautiful jade-esque color. A lot of people I know get disgusted by knowing their drinking out of a glass or eating off of a plate that came from someone else’s possession…well shit. Did you sanitize a plate before eating at someone else’s house or go out to eat with your friends while your drunk ass is downing shots of patron that had slut lips nuzzled against the same rim that you’re licking whatever salt left over there is? I think not.  Main rule for thrifting: CLEAN YO SHIT. Image

About a weekish ago, my brother asked me to go apartment hunting with him and of course, I always say yes. Yes, I go for the ride. Who the hell wouldn’t? We ended up in Newport News, Va and came across this gas station/food mart. Again, ya’ll know I LOVE gas station food. The sign made me O_O foreal and I just had to try the gizzards out. ImageSee that crispy, greasy, fatty goodness? $5 for a large drink and those gizzards. Automatically came with Texas Pete (ooohweeee my fav) and yes, the sign told the truth, it is THE SHIT. Gross, gross cuticles…don’t mind them -_- Washing dishes with no gloves will do it.

Image

While in that part of Hampton Roads, near Buckroe Beach there was a “Dollar Bargain” store. As cheap as us siblings can be, we were like HEEYAL YEAH LEZGO! Doodadooo *walking walking* Yeah man, the inside was no normal dollar tree. They had an array of random things and remember, Random=Awesome. Those nail polishes were $1 each. Unlike some people I know IRL and online, I honestly don’t give a fuck if my polish is “upscale” or “high end” or “fancy as shit with long lasting power”. If you truly “LOVE” nail varnishes, you’d know you don’t just stick to ONE EXPENSIVE ASS KIND. Honest truth? I love trying all brands. It doesn’t have to have “long lasting” in the description because I change my nails up more than once a week for the most part.If I do plan on keeping the same stuff on, I’ll just pair it up with a good top coat. It’s common sense really. I ain’t gotta be FANCY all of the time.I mean, of course the way it comes out of the bottle and onto the brush and onto the nails is important but then again, it’s nothing a little bit of thinner can’t cure. I mean shit, it was a dollar, why complain? Most of the time, you seriously get what you pay for. However these “I.C.E” (Not Pure Ice) polishes weren’t half bad for a buck.

These are some things I did to try em out:ImageImage

Don’t mind my ugly ass toes please.

Image

As I’ve stated before, I LOVE alligator clips! This particular one happened to be from that shop from Buckroe and of course, it was a buck. I know it’s going to break in like a month but I’ll love it while it lasts lol.

Image

And just to throw this in, a few hours after I did that pastellish design uptop, I swapped to this messy tentacle design in which the next morning, I swapped colors and design once again lol…don’t judge me!

Image

Sooo apart from all those random things I’ve posted about my time apart from blogging, I’ve also started working at a Tactical Shop. During my lunch, I was eating that lovely portable children’s yogurt and I’m not stating the name for certain purposes buuut uh..yeah….It’s not always the best to give us humans the option to be “creative” because people like me will end up filling in the blanks with shit like that…JUST SAYING. 

Anyway so the ending of this post is, I’ve been sick as fuck for this past week. I had to type this particular post up in parts with hitting the save button multiple times because I kept falling asleep after I said I couldn’t fall back asleep. Well shit, I’m awake once again and can’t breath through mah face so here I am, finishing this up. Hopefully I’ll get time and more topics to dish out onto this but for now, ya’ll are just gonna have to deal with this! 

Thank you guys for your patience and support! ❤ Confection1nfection

Where the hell has Confection1nfection been?Part 1(Lengthy but if you’d like, you can just browse the pics!)

Hello fellow blogsters! It’s been way too long since my last posts, I know I know -_-

This post is just to update ya’ll on what’s been going on.

That pic above was my birthmas weekend at Corolla Beach, North Carolina.

We went off-roading for the most part. I’ve made a video specifically for you guys on WordPress but uhh yeahhh no time for editing so here are some pics of the trip!

Image

Le breakfast I made for our friends that came with us before we left for NC: Fried rice and my perfect sizzlin’ bacon along with some sweet ass southern tea 😀Image

Image

That was taken on the border. Generally where I live, it’s approximately 25 minutes to the NC border. Raleigh, the place I was born at is about 4 hours away from Virginia Beach. However, Corolla, NC is only 2 hours away.

If ya’ll haven’t figured it out, I love Walmart. Every roadtrip or wherever we’re not used to, we visit theirs and this is the kind of shit I found at the Carolina one lol

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Signs were posted everywhere to stay 50ft away from the wild horsies…and there they are!

ImageImageImage

Image

Lol Only reason why I took this is because at first look we were like “WTF KIND OF TRAILER?!”

Image

Wild pony appears! Wild pony uses *CUTE*. Confection1nfection faints -_-

After the fun, we went to go eat at a place called Outerbanks Brewing Station.

2013-03-09_14-21-59_532

Oyster Po’boy and awesome ass wedges.

DSC00344

Everyone else got their famous beer sampler but since I’m not one for beer…when they made me try each kind…uh to me it just tasted like sweet bleach >_<

DSC00346My friend and I however got “Mandatory Evacuations” lol it was pretty damn tasty so we let the boys have their sweet bleach.

DSC00347DSC00348

After eating, we ATTEMPTED to go thrifting but shit, all of them cept 1 was closed and at that one I went to, we didn’t find much but a giant stack of Redbox dvds lolol

DSC00362 DSC00361

DSC00352

Wondering how much those people get paid to work on those in the water o.o
DSC00372Never seen a Mickey D’s express before lol

2013-03-09_18-30-49_123Very end of our road trip on the way home, we went to the Border Station. That was called “southern strawberry” but Idk how it was more southern than other strawberry flavors lol

2013-03-09_18-31-47_702I think we were all tired as shit but we figured this is just…fuckin’….wrong LOL
