Blog Love – No Shopping Regrets

| April 25, 2014 | 24 Comments


It’s been a week since my money-sucking trip to Buffalo, and the good news is I don’t have any shopping regrets! I was worried that I would look at my credit card statement and have a heart attack, but luckily I was smart enough to put some money aside for shopping, and the rest of the trip’s expenses will be paid off once I get my next paycheque. And since some of you asked to see some pictures of what I got, above are my beautiful Dior sunglasses (the first pair of non-cheapo H&M sunglasses I’ve ever bought), and below is the new love of my life (sorry HB, you’ve been temporarily replaced), my new Kate Space black leather purse.


As for this weekend, I’m definitely going to try to not buy anything at all. I’ve always hated the idea of no-spend days or shopping bans, but I think I might need to do one or the other, especially since my HB and I have our trip to Vancouver coming up!

And now here are my top 5 my blog posts of the week! Looks like there are some new personal finance bloggers popping up. Thanks for commenting on my posts this week everyone, and have a fantastic weekend!

    I’m not one to comment but I had to say great choice with your Kate Spade! I can say that because I just bought the exact same one in the green shade! Love the sunnies too, both beautiful choices.

    I love those Dior sunglasses, they look amazing on you! I’m a huge fan of Kate Spade…the only KS I own is a watch, part of my wardrobe revamp I did last month.

    Thanks for the link love!

  4. Love those Dior shades. I’m a Ray-Ban / Persol girl myself.. Polarized because I’m a wimp.

    That Kate Spade bag is also v. cute..

  6. I got my first pair of designer sunglasses two weeks ago when a friend of mine was clearing out her apartment post divorce. I can’t tell you how many goodies I’ve gotten from people going through divorces and looking to clear out and start over- it’s kinda crazy.

  7. The Dior shades definitely do look hot. Your bag is very classy too. That’s for the mention. :)

    I really like the Kate Spade purse you bought! I’m just waiting for my Matt & Nat bag to start falling apart before I purchase a KS one…but my bag sadly won’t co-operate. That’s what one gets when they purchase well-made items.

    • I love Matt & Nat too. And that’s something I’m definitely thinking for the future, to stop buying cheapo stuff like purses (because they’ve all fallen apart) and just save up the money to buy quality stuff. Quality over quantity is the way to live.

  9. Sometimes shopping is the best way to treat yourself. I love the purse and I would like to have one and give it as a gift to my fiance.

  10. I do not think I ever paid more than $10 for sunglasses, typically I buy them in bulk and pay only $3. Maybe they are worth it.

    And I have never bought a purse. But I have a few guy things that I maybe could equate with a purse. A few AR15s, quite a few tools, and a few other manly items I can’t live without but never use…

  11. Thanks for the link love! Also, I love Kate Spade, and even more so after I stumbled upon their side brand, Kate Spade Saturday ( I went into the Kate Spade Saturday store in Soho and fell in love with a purse. I did not splurge that day since it was a) full price and b) they were out of stock of my favorite color but now I know what I’m saving up for!
