Shopping Overload!

Hello!! It's been 2.5 weeks since my last shopping update!
I was on vacation for 1.5 weeks. I just got back last saturday.

I went on an Alaska cruise with my hubby and my parents.
The things I bought from the duty-free shop on the cruise ship.

Rhinestone disco ball ring

This disco ball ring so much looks like the Betsey Johnson disco ball ring I wanted to get awhile ago. I don't like the BJ ring because the rhinestones color is pink. I'm happy that I finally found a ring with similar style and not pink. ♥

I'm always a fan of stars.

White gold plated/sterling silver bracelet

I bought a $9.99 "Alaska" windbreaker off shore.

There's one day, for a few hours, the shop offered a bunch of these watch+ earrings/necklace/ring set for women and watch+passport case/pen/calculator set for men, for $19.99. They are nice but I don't think they are worth $99.99. The quality is just okay. That price tag is just for show. They are good to give to people though. My parents bought 3 boxes. LOL

Watch & Jewelries set

Then, I also got a Matryoshka doll and some Xmas ornaments.

When I'm traveling to out of state, I like buying X'mas ornaments that shows the name of the location, if I can find one. Once I went to my hubby's director's home, for X'mas party.
His 20 feet X'mas tree was totally covered by ornaments that he and his wife bought when they were traveling to different states and countries. They've inspired me to do the same thing.

I bought this cardigan from a week before my vacation. Nice quality and warm. Love the ruffles. I kinda wish the wrist part had ruffles too.

This wool coat, I bought it from MjrSales site a few weeks ago. They had free shipping offer if bought anything from clearance section. I couldn't resist buying this coat. It's so cheap!! The coat color is very dark navy, almost black. It looks like it's still brand new. The extra button is still attached to the coat. It's thick and warm. I think it's kinda chunky, it's not slim-fitting as modeled. I guess it's alright, that way I can wear layers of clothes comfortably.

Victoria's Secret VIA wool peacoat - $19.97 (Orig. $79.99)

I purchased these from last week. Their website had some kind of glitch.
The deal originally was a free 1/2 inch Solia flat iron when buy $50+ worth of items (the deal is now over). Someone found a way to get the flat iron without buying that much, by adding and removing specific items from the cart. Shipping was free.

FHI Grip Clip Hair Clips - $7.50
Spornette Little Wonder (teasing brush) - $4.50

Solia Professional Ceramic Ion Mini Styler (1/2") + Glove - FREE (Orig. $40)

A few days ago, hubby showed me a nice deal on North Face Denali jacket on, plus 4% eBates cashback, which is $3.30 saving. Not too bad!
I don't like wearing fleece jackets, but I bought one since it's pretty good deal, hubby suggested me to do that. He LOVES his Denali so much, he abandoned his other coats, even the wool cashmere ones. I got it yesterday. Yah, it's pretty warm.

The North Face Classic Denali Fleece Jacket - $82.48 shipped (Orig. $164.95)

I've been using the current brush head since March. I'm supposed to get a new one every 5-6 months. So it's time to buy a new one. It's much cheaper to buy this brush head on eBay.

Clarisonic Brush Head Delicate - $11.95 shipped (Orig. $25)

About 2 weeks ago, I was able to get a 50% off code from a member of Slickdeals forum!
As you can see, most are men clothes. My hubby did most of the shopping. LOL.
I also received $12.52 cashback from eBates. Another extra saving there! ;-)

Total $125.xx shipped, after the 50% discount.

I only bought 2 things, a jacket and a top. I'm keeping the top only. I returned the jacket. It's a nice jacket, but it's only a cotton jacket. I was hoping it'd be a thicker kind of jacket. Also it's too masculine for me too. The jacket is pretty popular though, it's sold out online and I only saw a couple left in store.
Hubby is pretty satisfied with his buys, he only returned 2 pair of bottoms.
