What’s great about being a mom blogger, is that you get to meet (virtually) other mom bloggers. I enjoy reading other mom blogs to learn about how other moms live their lives and their thoughts on different mom topics. I recently came across a fellow mom blogger who started her own business and what’s impressive is that she’s created this unique and versatile product that has multiple uses, a must have in every mom’s wardrobe. Read on to learn more about why I’m loving my Cardimom by Multiwear. Maternity clothing every new mom needs.

5 Ways To Save Money On Maternity Clothing

Yes, I’m expecting baby no. 4! I’m half way there and due in September. When we first found out I was in shock myself! We weren’t planning for a fourth baby but here we are, and now that it’s sunk in, I’m actually really excited! Yes, it’s going to be really busy, but hey, we’re already busy so it’s not going to be much difference. (I hope! LOL!)

Anyway, so I’m writing this post because I gave away all my maternity clothes! I got rid of all my maternity dresses, tops and leggings, which means I have to buy all new clothing. If you go to major maternity clothing retailers, you’ll find their clothes are not cheap! They are quite expensive and how can you justify buying an expensive maternity top that you will only wear for less than 6 months!

I’ve found my favourite maternity clothing destination is Old Navy! I’m finding I can find a lot of non maternity clothing that is suitable for the expectant mother at reasonable prices. I also like their maternity selections as they are surprisingly quite comfortable.

Here is my post on how to save money on maternity clothing.

How to get luxury handbags for less in Vancouver BC

Not too long ago I purchased my first luxury handbag. I was eyeing the Balenciaga Classic City handbag for a really long time. I’ve learned that when you really want something, you think about it A LOT and if you got something similar, that it just wouldn’t do and you would continue to want the original thing you had your eyes on. I’ve learned this over the years. Sometimes, it’s ok to just go with something similar, but other times, you want what you want. So my hubby surprised me and decided to order it for me without me knowing. I was so so shocked he got it for me but at the same time I was super happy. I really like this bag because it’s classic and so versatile and it’s a good size so you can fit a lot of stuff in it. For me, I like to keep a lot of my purchases for a really long time. It’s an investment piece that you can get a lot of use out of. You can be really dressed up and use this bag or dress more casually.

I was talking to a friend recently, and she told me her secret, (but not so secret, LOL) to getting designer handbags for less. Why pay full price when you don’t have to? You can save hundreds of dollars! Who doesn’t like saving money! She told me that she has purchased gently used designer handbags at Modaselle. It’s a store that’s been around for more than 10 years selling pre-owned designer luxury handbags in Vancouver. Before, I would be reluctant to purchase something pre-owned. How do you know if it’s authentic? What if it’s just a knock off? What if you’re getting ripped off? But you won’t have to worry about those things when you purchase a luxury handbag at Modaselle. They have been in the business for more than 10 years and have served many happy customers in the lower mainland, so you can feel confident in your purchase.

 

To be honest, I haven’t purchased a purse from them yet, but I have heard great things about the owner and their products. When I decided to buy my next luxury designer handbag, it will be from them. I’ve learned my lesson! LOL! Check them out by clicking on the link below.

Modaselle -Authentic Luxury

They also sell jewelry, watches and other accessories, as well as items for men. You can also sell your lightly used luxury goods to them too. You can visit them at 943 Seymour Street in Vancouver.

Another way of getting designer luxury items for way less is by joining a Facebook group. I was recently added to Vancouver Luxury Designer Lovers. Join this group if you want to be tempted to buy some awesome stuff!! LOL! Well, if you were going to buy it anyway, you might as well get it for less! The thing that you may have been wanting could be here and you can save a lot! Everyday, people are posting their lightly used luxury items. Usually, they prove the authenticity with the receipts and other certificates so you can rest assured you’re getting the real deal.

The Vancouver Fashion Collective is another Facebook group you could join. It has over 7000 member so everyday members are posting their designer goods.

So if you’re wanting to get luxury designer handbags for less, try shopping at Modaselle or Facebook groups! You may find exactly what you are looking for for way less and feel awesome about your purchase! Happy shopping!

Let me know where you have bought preowned luxury handbags!

My Payless summer shoe haul!

 

I’ve always seen posts like this on YouTube so now it’s my turn! LOL! After having a baby (well 12 months ago) I’m in desperate need of some new pretty summer shoes! When you have a baby, all you can wear basically are flats. Flats are nice. They are comfy and…that’s pretty much it, comfy. Sometimes us girls need a nice pair of heels to make us feel pretty! Plus, more than a year has gone by and during that time, the styles have changed! Time to get a fashion update!

Being a mom, we have tons of expenses. Sure, we’d love to by designer shoes/name brand shoes, but with a family of 5 you really have to watch the budget. Payless had surprisingly budget friendly styles that are trendy and super comfortable! The brand that has been fitting me lately is called Brash from Payless. I walked in the other day and I was surprised to see my size available in 4 styles that I really liked! Usually when I walk in, there’s nothing that I like or my size is not available but yesterday was my lucky day! Plus, all the shoes I bought were on sale!! Score!!!!

Here are the four pairs of shoes that I bought:

I love my new Payless shoes! They’re trendy, comfy, and very pretty! I also have 3 weddings to go to this summer so I can probably where the black heels to the weddings! If you need to update your shoe collection, check out Payless! You may be pleasantly surprised. If you sign up for their mailing list they will send you coupons for 20% off! All the savings help right? Hope you’re all enjoying your summer!
