There’s an ongoing $20.13 sale at 6pm.com today. When I opened my email today, I saw the alert and headed out to the website to check out the thousands of shoes, sandals, wedges, pants, jackets and so much more! Everything pegged at $20.13!!!

I am itching to click on an item and buy one, but my mind is telling me not to because unfortunately, 6pm.com does not have international shipping. Just one thing that I do not like about 6pm.com, but when it comes to prices, they’re affordable and I love the products that they sell. But I happen to buy from 6pm.com last November. I bought a pair of boots, the one that I wanted. So I had a friend of me receive my items in the US and she had it shipped to me here. I was able to save a lot from the shipping fees but I took some time off of my friend, but she said, she’s okay with it.

Right now, I am browsing at the many products that are just $20.13 and I am still thinking if I will buy or not. But when I think of the hassle and that they don’t ship internationally, I think I won’t buy. Well, I’ll just content myself with browsing, lol! :-)

I was at the thrift store the other day and guess what, I found skinny jeans! It was from an unknown brand, it was size 27 which perfectly fits me! Sometimes I just don’t understand the sizes I have here, some jeans that are sizes 28 and above are so tight, and while the size 27 I got sits perfectly on my waist! :-) Anyway, the skinny jeans I found was also black which is just what I exactly needed for my work. Plus I can wear it with my boots on. ;-)

The jeans had no torn or anything so I guess it was worth the price that I paid for, $6.99. When I tried it in the house with my “not-so-thick” leggings, it still fits! It was the perfect pair of jeans for me. I can use it for work, it goes well with ballet flats and with boots, I can still wear leggings underneath during the cold winter days and it was cheap! It was a really good deal!

Though I want a new pair of skinny jeans and I have been to the mall to check out the stores, I did not buy one for me but instead bought a pair of jeans for my school boy. I guess when you become a mom, you think twice when you buy something for yourself and just grabs anything for your children, hehehe… So anyway, I am happy with my purchase at the thrift store and hopefully, in the days to come, I will still be able to find good deals there.

Finally, I was able to go to the mall and bought Kuya Bogs a pair of fleece-lined denim at the Children’s Place. I actually went first to H&M to check out if they have and yes they did have at about $19. Then I went to the Children’s Place and I don’t know why I settled to buying at the Children’s Place which was a bit more expensive than H&M.

fleece-lined denimAnyway, I bought this for $24.99 from its regular price of $29.95. I have my eyes closed when I paid for this at the checkout, but I don’t want to worry anymore for my school boy. I know it will not provide all the warmth he will need, but it’s better than just wearing the plain pants on cold winter days.

I should have gone again to H&M and bought him another pair, but it was too much for me anymore. I have to work extra hours for that though, hehehe.

So I hope these pants will fit him till next Fall or Winter. I purposely bought him one size bigger than his size now so that we can still use that next year. Anyway, as long as he has one now, I am a happy mum!

The little boys got some more clothes! Some of them new and some are old. But I don’t really mind if they are old, as long as they can still be used.

Hubby’s cousin and his family brought a big bag of clothes for the little boys. There was a jacket, sweaters and a couple of shirts for Kuya Bogs. For Baby Job, some shirts too and a scarf and pairs of gloves for me, and for hubby, a jacket too. Our winter wardrobe is finally getting into place. We still lack mittens for both the little boys, scarves too and some head gears for us to keep our faces from the very cold wind during the winter months.

I am still worried for Kuya Bogs since he goes to school everyday and we just walk, I am afraid that he might feel very cold with just his pants on (with an extra fleece pants inside or sometimes, his PJs :-) ). So I am planning of buying him a fleece-lined pants at one of the clothing stores here and that is if I have the time to go to the mall. But I really do hope I can get him one sooner because it’s getting cold out here and in just a few days or weeks, it will be winter! :-)

I miss wearing sandals and flats. :(

I have been wearing rubber shoes, sneakers and boots for two months now since we arrived here in Canada and I worry so much about my cute little toes and nails ;-) Because I wear closed shoes now, my little toe gets hurt and one of my toenails is slowly reaching its “timely” demise, huhuhu… :-( Plus, I worry too that because my feet are sweating here (they don’t sweat at all back in the Philippines), I might get smelly feet… uh oh!!!!

Since it’s the winter days and summer has gone, sandals and flats will have to be kept for the meantime and I guess by that time, I am also wearing nail colors!!!! Oh my! One of my most dreaded things, wearing nail polish! But if my toes and my toenails are really that bad to look at, then I am left with no choice at all! It would not be so really nice to look at dark toenails while wearing sandals/slippers, right?

Anyway, I know time flies by so fast, so winter will just come and go! So spring and summer… I’ll be waiting!

It’s my first ever pair of boots here in Canada. I bought this at Mark’s at the Canadian Tire at a sale price of $74.99 from $99.99.

Denver Hayes Faux Fur Lined Casual Boots

This is the product description that I got from the Mark’s online store:

These stylish faux fur lined low casual boots are a great addition to your winter boot wardrobe.  Built with TMAX insulation and waterproof leather with sealed seams, they are sure to keep you warm and dry in the winter months.

*Waterproof leather with sealed seams
*Quad Comfort cushions, supports and provides shock absorption
*HYPER-DRI HD2  keeps your feet dry from the inside out
*T-MAX insulation to regulate the temperature of your feet and allow moisture and excess heat to escape
*Felt insole with metallic cold reflector
*Cushioned insole
*Flexible midsole
*EVA cushion insert
*Side zipper style

For a first-time boot wearer, it was pretty heavy, but as I used it more often, I find it more comfortable and light. I wear it with my boot cut jeans and my skinny jeans too. I just love these boots!

But hubby said I should have bought the tall boots of the same brand to keep my legs warm too during the cold days, and I guess he was right. But who knows, later on, soon, I will be able to buy a new pair of boots (the tall ones) :-) .

Mark’s has become one of my favorite stores here in Canada. Not only me, but hubby as well. Mark’s a part of the Canadian Tire group of companies and is devoted to providing Canadians extraordinary clothing and footwear. Since it is now a part of Canadian Tire, Mark’s is located inside the Canadian Tire store. The nearest Mark’s to us is at Kerr St. which is just about a 20-minute walk or a 5-minute bus ride.

Why has this become hubby’s and my favorite? Well, this is the store where hubby bought his very first pair of shoes, his steel-toed shoes for work. There were many to choose from and that time when we went there, Mark’s was having a sale. So he bought one and a couple of socks to go with the new shoes. I like Mark’s too because they have very nice clothing line. They offer men’s and women’s casual and business wear, outdoor apparel and work wear. What I like most are their line of winter jackets and boots. Although they are a bit expensive than the other brand names, but I know that their products are made of quality materials.

If only I have enough funds to buy new clothes (winter jackets) for me and hubby, I would really buy at Mark’s. Oh well, I know I can… soon, when I earn… hehehe… :-) For now, I can only do some window shopping at Mark’s. :-)

I have been doing a lot of “window” shopping online for boots for my use. I have subscribed to some online stores here and have browsed through the many deals and discounted boots, shoes, apparels, house ware, gadgets, electronics, kitchen stuff and so many others. But I have set my eyes on boots.

Everyday, I receive alerts from the different stores and every time I open the links to the boots, they are either reserved by others, don’t have my size or sold out. It’s so frustrating too that sometimes, even if the shoes and the boots are on sale, they are still quite expensive. Although I have already bought a pair of winters boot for me, I still like to have that one particular brand of boots! It’s quite expensive and as for my budget, it is still out of range.

Well, one of these I will be able to buy those cool-looking boots!!! :-)

I guess it’s okay to give unusual presents for 60th birthday, for fun. For one to reach 60 is a miracle. With so many health hazards present today, reaching that age is a remarkable feat. Had I known five years ago that Spencersonline.com has unusual presents for 60th birthday, I would have bought some few stuff for my mom and for hubby’s friend who turned 60.

At Spencersonline.com, there are so many fun stuff to choose from. When I browsed the website, I had fun looking at the cute and unusual birthday presents. I am sure too that hubby’s friend would love the ones that I saw there. For my mom, I think she will like the 60 Starter Kit like the one below:

unusual presents for 60th birthday

I found this one which would have been for hubby’s friend:

unusual presents for 60th birthday

An inflatable cane! :-)

These really are unusual presents for 60th birthday, but just for fun though! 60th birthdays should be fun and most of all memorable too. It doesn’t have to all serious stuff, because they say, the more fun you have, the more you laugh, the more you live longer.

I am glad that I have found Spencersonline.com because aside from the unusual presents, they have lots of stuff for the home, for the dorm, they have laptop accessories, naughty wear and the good stuff to wear too. They have clothes, jewelry, baby and children’s stuff, and things for parties like a bachelorette party, birthday, girl’s night out and so much more. You can check out Spencersonline.com and you might just find the perfect Halloween costume for you or your kids. I am going there now because I need new stuff for our home and for Halloween, which is just a few days from now! :-)
