Hello! My name is Shannan. And I am a shopaholic. I used to call myself a recovering shopaholic, but that ship has long sailed! So, I figured I’d bring my friends along with me to see what I buy during my shopping adventures.
I have linked items that are still available online. Please note that some links are affiliate links where I earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. So, you ready to see what I got?

After telling my Instagram friends that I needed to stop shopping, I called my friend Lisa and set up a shopping date for the following week. I caved so fast! After making plans for my dad to watch my kids, I settled on Tuesday. The idea was to buy ONE thing. Black boots. That’s it! That was my plan…
We started out at Shoe Show. Lisa is a shoe expert. So, when she found black boots for $24.98, I was sold! I normally like to spend less than $20, but I needed boots so it is what it is! I wore these boots over the weekend, as pictured below. I have also linked the boots too!
After getting lunch at Three Dollar Cafe, we headed to Cato Fashions. Whyyyy did I agree to go there? Who am I kidding? My leg was hardly pulled. After shopping there, I left with six items including, ornament earrings ($4.99), a smocked floral top ($11.99), a striped floral top ($5.99), a sleeveless burgundy knit top ($7.99), a yellow top ($1.99) and burnt orange pants ($11.99). After taxes, I only paid $48.09 so I guess that wasn’t too bad! Right!?
Most items aren’t available online, but the earrings and smocked top are! I wore the top to church yesterday paired with a coral skirt I bought several months ago for only $2.99!
Friday (November 27th)
So…yeah…I got caught up in the Black Friday sales! In my defense, I got NUMEROUS sale notifications from Shein. It did NOT help that they were having a Buy One, Get One 99% off sale on select items! After tax and discounts, I paid $39.63 for a floral button up blouse ($0.16), sunflower print maxi dress ($25.00), beige heart sweater ($20.00) and shirred waist flare skirt ($0.17). After seeing these prices, can you blame me? All items are currently available, except the heart sweater. However, it is available in other colors!
Saturday (November 28th)
I have no excuse for shopping Shein on Saturday! Or, what about the fact that they had a flash sale with items I liked? Will that suffice!? LOL! After taxes and discounts, I paid $32.83 for a gold faux leather skirt ($7.90), ombre denim jacket ($12) and shirred animal print dress ($9.90). That’s right! I needed a denim jacket. There’s the reason! So, I NEEDED to go online shopping! All items are available, except the skirt in gold. It is available in other colors!
Sunday, November 29th
So…I thought about it and I really needed some black booties. Yes, I know. I bought the other black boots. But, they are more casual. I needed something more dressy for skirts and such. Right!? You feel me? So, I had previously saved some in my Shein Wishlist. But, I’m impatient. I wanted the boots sooner rather than later. Enter Amazon prime! I paid $25.99 before tax for these beautiful cutout boots! Aren’t they gorgeous!?
Then, I got to thinking. We need some new matching family Christmas pajamas! The ones I bought for my daughter last year were already a size smaller than she wore. But hey, my daughter and I wanted her to match us instead of wearing a gown version of our pajamas! So, now we needed a new set. This was an ordeal!
I wear a 3X, sometimes 2X in bottoms. The first hurdle is to find pajamas in my size and then hope it comes in a family set. Fortunately, it wasn’t as hard this year as it was last year. But…. I did not see where I could order the boy version of our set so I ordered my son the girl version. After my husband took a look-see, we realized that I did not click the color of the boy pajamas and that is why I could not add them to the cart! Let’s blame this on mommy brain! So, I re-bought the set and cancelled the first order. Crisis averted! I have linked them below! But hurry! They are selling fast!
And there you have it! My shopping extravaganza! I am going to try to slow down for real this time. Let’s see how that works! Until next time Comfies! Happy Shopping!
