Born Pretty Store Review

Born pretty store review

I don’t write a lot of reviews. When I do, they’re only ever for things I truly believe in or purchase from, such as Thred Up and Ipsy.

I found this store. They didn’t find me.

And I’m obsessed.

Target Haul (Justified. . )

Target haul 1 Justified

For Christmas, my uncle gave me a Target gift card.

You may be thinking that I did a haul not too long ago and are now judging me for my materialistic ways and lack of money savings.

But any shopaholic knows that buying something with a gift card isn’t really spending money and it’s a gift, hence I’m justified. That was easy logic.

Thank you, Tio, for the gift card. Now let me show you guys what I bought!

Mini Thrift Store Haul

Mini Thrift Store Haul

Today is Martin Luther King Junior day. Lucky students, employees, and city workers got the day off.

By pure luck, my entire family got the day off from work, school, and bible studies. And a follow-up question, bright and sparkly, presented itself: So what are we gonna do?

We’re the Koontzes. We hike, and camp, and go to the movies, and eat junk food, and go thrift shopping.

$11 Thrift Haul

Because I needed to do something to blog about, I just had to go out and spend money. You guys practically forced me. I had to. I had no choice.There was also a 50% off sale. On the whole store.

Overwhelmed. I was overwhelmed. I’m still overwhelmed!

The truth is I had work for seven hours Saturday morning and didn’t feel like spending the rest of my now-free Saturday stuck at home. My family said there was a sale at the thrift store. I couldn’t believe we were still lounging about the house! We all got dressed, I put what I thought was around ten dollars of tip money in my wallet, and we sped on down to our favorite thrifting spot, eyes wide, lips licking, and rubbing our hands together in excited anticipation.

Five Dollar Bag!

Last Saturday, I went to – get this – Sacks ThriftAvenue in Hemet, CA. Isn’t that awesome? It made me “aww” aloud. I think it’s really clever.

I posted the pic of my wonderful five dollar bag on Instagram. But it seems like forever ago, doesn’t it?
We were in the area, and my dad had heard of this thrift store, somehow, and wanted to check it out, so we did. I didn’t plan on buying anything – like, at all.

Even when I saw the board, “Five dollar bag of clothes. Limit three pairs of jeans, two purses, two pairs of shoes, belts. $1 for the bag.” (This is from memory, so you know.Don’t rely too much on it.) Still, I wasn’t planning on buying anything. Honest to goodness.

I wandered into the book section, where I was stumped when I saw a sign that said “books 10c.” I didn’t believe it. It had to be a mistake. Maybe just paperbacks ten cents. Frankly, if it wasn’t for the – not one, not two, but – three different signs placed that said “books 10c,” I would’ve had to walk up to the register and ask for confirmation, a few times.
Sadly, here began my shopping splurge.
