How did I spent my $50 Victoria’s Secret gift card from my birthday

I wrote on my earlier post here that my in-laws gave me a $50 Victoria’s Secret gift card on my birthday. I drove to the mall and used my gift card. It happened that the Victoria’s Secret is having a sale that day. The store is mobbed by Angels (this is how they call their customers). The prices are very low. They are having 75% off on all the beauty products. I only buy the nail polish from that list. I cannot tolerate the smell of the lotions and he perfumes. It smells good but I am allergic to the smell of the perfumes. It gives me dizzy so I stay away. Luckily you can avoid the smells if you can shop on their website, and lower the cost of your entire purchase by using a Victorias Secret discount code.

shopping at Victoria's Secret

The brassière is sale for $19.99. The underwear is $3.99 on some of the selections. I love to wear brassière and underwear. Most of my intimates are from Victoria’s Secret. I love their material and the style. I bought two of these brassieres. I also bought five of their sexy underwear. They are all laces which is my favorite material. I have a very sensitive skin. The lace is just perfect for my skin.

Overall I am happy with the gift card that I got from my birthday. I did not wear anything from my recent Victoria’s Secret shopping yet. They are all in my drawers.

Thank you M for this beautiful birthday and gift card

I got these two beautiful birthday cards on my birthday. Do you wonder why I got two birthday cards? It is because one card is for my birthday and one for Christmas. My birthday is also on Christmas. How very lucky I am, right? I also received a $25 gift card from Aeropostale. M is actually my husband’s eldest daughter that spent her two weeks winter break with her daughter who is also M. She is actually my step-daughter but we are seven (7) years apart. Is she not very sweet?

my birthday cards and gift card
 

I really like my birthday gifts. The cards are beautiful especially that napping cat on Santa’s hat. I want to say thank you so very much to M. I also gave her shirts from Aeropostale. They are all short sleeves as she lives in Florida. I hope that she will like the shirts as well. I am planning to buy a winter coat on my gift card. The winter coat I am wearing now is very light which does not keep me warm when it is very cold outside.

My new Kohl’s credit card

I love to shop mainly for my kids’ clothes and footwear. Kohl’s is one of my favorite stores to shop. I could shop online or in the store. I love to shop at Kohl’s. They have the cutest outfits for girls and boys. What I love most about Kohl’s is? I always receive coupons in the mail. It saves me money. I can also use some coupon codes if I shop online. Sometimes you get a $10 off on your next shopping when your total shopping is $50. It will add to my savings.

My new Kohl's credit card

I really like my new Kohl’s credit card that I received the last month. This will expire in a couple of years from now. I also like their new design. It looks fancy. I only use my Kohl’s credit card for my kids. I am glad that my husband does not mind me using this Kohl’s credit card. He is the one who pays for my bill.

How about you? Do you have Kohl’s credit card as well? Do you shop at Kohl’s? Do you shop online or in the store?

It was worth $10 and another coupon but this you need to buy a certain amount to get the freebie.

My $10 birthday gift card from Victoria's Secret
You have to use your Victoria’s Secret card for the $10 to work. My birthday is December and thankful that Victoria’s Secret sent it in advance.

What do I buy with my $10 Victoria’s Secret gift card? I love intimates of all the products of Victoria’s Secret. I know that I need to buy a red bra to match with my red dress here for the Christmas party with some of my Filipino friends and their families. I went to their Website and search for a red bra. I found a multi way bra for $29.50. The Website also offers free underwear when you buy a bra. I check some coupons and found that they can send my items for free. I got a bra for $29.50, free underwear and free shipping. I am glad that my husband paid off my Victoria’s Secret Angel card. The balance is now back to zero. I used my Victoria’s Secret Angel card to work with my $10 birthday gift card. The items are on the way already. I cannot wait to receive them.

How about you? Do you like to shop at Victoria’s Secret too? You can search for online coupons as well to help you save money.

My husband really has a good heart

I admit that there are times my husband is a pain in the butt. He does drive me nuts. Our marriage is not perfect. We have many ups and downs but we always work it out. We always settle our differences. He does have a good heart. I can rely on him for help especially for my family back in the Philippines. He does listen to me especially if I have problems. He is not perfect but I love him about that. 

There is a situation in my family back in the Philippines. They need my help financially. I try to help my family in the Philippines as I want too. This time I cannot help as I am run out of funds in my card. I told my husband about the problem. He has no hesitation and help right away. I really love him for having a good heart. I want to say thank you sweetheart for all your help. I love you for being you and your imperfection.

Day 05- A picture of somewhere you have been to

There is no place in the world that I rather be now except in the Philippines particularly in my home town, Cagayan de Oro City. I left my heart in Cagayan de Oro City. There is no place like home.

GOD is so great that HE allowed me and my daughter to visit the Philippines. I am not really looking forward for a very long flight. I am thankful that despite of the delayed and canceled of our flights; we arrived safely back home to New York. I spent most of the time with my Mom who I did not see for six (6) long years. I did not visit beautiful tourist spots but I did spend my precious time with the most important person in my life which is my Mom. I am sorry to my friends that I did not spend more time with them. I hope that you forgive me. I will let the pictures describe it for you. Please forgive me for uploading many pictures.

I never forget the moment that I am looking down at my home town, Cagayan de Oro City, up in the air.

PhotobucketIt was such a big relief when our plane, Philippine Airlines, landed in Lumbia airport on the 29th day of June 2012.

PhotobucketMy Mom and my niece P stayed with us in our hotel room. We stayed at Country Village hotel in Carmen. I wanted to stay in my Mom’s house to save some money but my little girl will not allow me. She loves the pool at the hotel we stayed.

PhotobucketThere is two free complimentary breakfast in the hotel. I let my little girl and her cousin gets the free. My Mom and I choose our own breakfast food. I am very privileged to spend my Mom’s 69th birthday too.

PhotobucketDuring the morning, I spent my time in my Mom’s house. My little girl met her cousins and meet new friends as well. I am having a hard time using my debit cards to use when we go out. What I do is?

PhotobucketI send my Mom some money and the two of us picked it up at a pawn shop. It works this way. I can use some cash.

PhotobucketWe eat most of the time at Jollibee Vamenta in Carmen with my Mom, my two nieces D and P. My little girl loves to eat pancake and spaghetti. I also enrolled her at a Jollibee Kids club.

PhotobucketWe went to Raagas beach. The water is blurry because it rained most of the night. My little girl loves the beach.

PhotobucketWe stayed in my Mom’s room just to talk and spent quality time together. This is use to be my room when I was a teenager.

Victoria’s Secret gift cards that I received on my birthday

Christmas is my birthday. I am very lucky to share my birthday to those who believe in the spirit of Christmas. I remember growing up; Christmas is the best holiday for me until now still is. I might not have a grand birthday growing up. I am still very happy that people are celebrating Christmas with joy and laughter.

I remember that I only get to buy new clothes during my birthday. My Dad received an extra salary during Christmas. He gives each kid $25 to spend. This is the only way that I can buy new clothes for myself. I am still thankful for that. I missed my Dad so very much. It has been eight (8) years since the last time I saw him. He is in heaven now watching his kids and grandkids growing up.

Now that I live in America, I received gifts on my birthday. I prepare celebrating Christmas with my kids. My husband always gives me something on my birthday so as my parent’s-in-law. My husband and my Mom gave me Victoria’s Secret gift cards. I want to say thank you to my husband and to my Mom. They both know my guilty pleasure. My husband gave me a $100 while my Mom gave me a $50. I used the two gift cards yesterday online.

What about you? Do you like to receive gift card on your birthday? Do you prepare cash?
