Top Stores To Shop + How To Get Cash Back.

My name is Marikah and I’m a shopperholic. *Whew that felt good to admit haha*. Okay, I’m not alone because majority of the time I post a dope outfit or other accessories on my instagram stories, a bunch of you reach out to find out where I got it. So I decided to do a blog post giving you some deets on my favorite go-to stores to shop (some non-clothing related) and my secret to saving money even though I’m spending. If you’re interested in knowing that information, keep reading!

Top Stores To Shop [Online/In-store]

  1. ASOS. This is a big spill because Asos is my go-to store, especially since you can subscribe/pay for the two day shipping which comes in handy ever so often! Why wait 3-5 days when you can get your outfits in 2 days? Exactly. Another reason I absolutely love asos is because they have the most random sales. I’m a girl who love my discounts/sales so this is a PLUS. Nothing I love more than a little discount. Asos also has clothing fit for any occassion. This is something I appreciate a lot. So there you have it my three main reasons I love Asos. Here’s a few outfits I copped from Asos.

Yellow pleated dress, black scooped back bodysuit, pastel yellow dress and yellow suit.

2. SHEIN. Honestly, I slept on Shein back in the days. It’s actually a great online shore for finding dupes and style on a budget. It’s a hit or miss sometimes, but when you get a hit it’s a HIT. I bought all my swimwear for my honeymoon from Shein. One day I’ll show you guys those photos. Definitely check out the website.

3. ZARA. Everyone knows Zara has dope pieces. I choose wisely because so much people shop their now. The prices are pretty high, but the quality is great. I think because I worked their in the past it has made me more open to shopping there. I sure do miss the employee discounts though!

4. LEVIs. Top store for denim jeans. It’s pricey, but the quality is long lasting. You can go years without if you buy one or two pairs. In my book that’s a win. I usually buy my jeans when there’s a sale, but if I really want it bad, I’ll pay the full price.

5. ST.COLE [new addition]. You’re welcome in advance. Someone put me on and I won’t be stingy and not share it. I bought a dope hat from here recently and I’m patiently waiting to be notified of when the next ones I want come back in stock.

6. NORDSTOM RACK. Don’t sleep on them like me. My sisters love this store and I too now share their love for it. The best prices and all the everything you never knew you needed!

Okay more stores to check out, I’ll just list them:

7. HOME DEPOT. For your plant needs and wants! Check out my youtube video to see my plant video! Link HERE.

8. BEDSCAPE. For all your bed dreams and desires!

9. BELLOCQ. Great kitchen necessities and wants!

10. SUNGLASS SPOT. All the glasses and shades you NEED all at $5. You’re welcome!

11. GLOSSIER. All your skincare and makeup needs. Here’s a 10% off link on me!

12. BOOTAY BAG. Get your panties and bras delivered every month with your subscription of like $10-15 bucks! You’re welcome.

13. LULUS. Quality clothing, shoes, accessories.

14. FOREVER 21. DO. NOT. SLEEP. ON. THEM. That’s all. I got a fur coat from them last year and it will last me forever! Here’s a picture of me in it.

15. H&M. I recently started shopping here again and I’m satisfied with the outcome.

16. MANGO. LOVE LOVE LOVE MANGO. A bit pricey, but you can get lucky and catch a sale!

17. AMAZON. Guys, for all your needs amazon got you. Accessories, home goods, clothing, bedding you name it!!

18. LAST BUT NOT LEAST, a list of “black owned logos” curated by my friend Evelyn on her blog “Her Neck Of The Woods”! CLICK HERE to view.

That’s about all the stores I can remember for now. Any additional ones, I’ll come back and add it to this post.

How To Get Cash Back When You Shop

So I’ve been shopping and getting cash back whenever I do from certain stores. Want to know how? Easy. I signed up for Rakuten (known as beats before) to get a percentage of money back when I shop at qualifying stores.

INSTRUCTIONS TO EARN CASH BACK:

  • Sign up with your email using this link–> I WANT CASH BACK
  • Download the app on your phone or computer
  • Whenever you’re ready to shop type in the name of the store
  • Click the store, then your cash back will be activated
  • After your purchase check back the app and you’ll see the cash back in your account

I’ve been using this since 2018 earning cash back and here are my results! You will only receive the cash back when you’ve earned back more than $5 and in every three months.

Hopefully this helps! I definitely recommend that you sign up and get money back….YOUR money back when you shop. Think of it as a discount every time you shop! It’s amazing. Let me know if you have questions.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks so much for stopping by! XO MJ.

Celebrate Love With Glossier You.

As the world goes crazy over “Valentine’s Day” every year, I usually think back to how that day came about. I’m not going to go over the nitty-gritty of it all, but I’m here to say let’s change the narrative! I mean… that’s how “Galentine’s Day” came about and that’s been the best fake holiday ever since! Instead of gushing over your other half, just celebrate love with your close family and friends, so that no one feels left out!

Today’s post is about the Glossier You, which is glossier’s one and only perfume. It has a nice, light scent that’s not too girly and feminine. This scent was made for people who like their scents to last throughout the day! If you watched previous videos I’ve made about glossier you would have seen the glossier you solid, the small compact perfume in a small case that glossier use to sell. It’s now out of commission. As sad as that is, at least we have the glossier you to still bask in!

The perfect gift set.

The Glossier You come with a special set now that is perfect for every girl on the go. It comes with the Pro Tip (eyeliner that is very precise and easy to use) and the Clear Lip Gloss (Yes I know I have the red pictured here, but you should definitely invest in both if you’re a gloss girl like me!). The cost for the set of 3 is $75 and the Glossier You by itself is $60. Yes it is a bit pricey, but it is worth the buy. And a tip for when you do get yours, use it sparingly! One spray can go a long way.

You can get this set for a loved one, family member, friend, girlfriend, aunt, sister or yourself. Give a little, get a little! Don’t forget to use my link for 10% off your purchase!CLICK HERE.

Thanks for stopping by! XOXO MJ. Remember to celebrate love every single day, not just one day!

If you didn’t know, I’m a Glossier Rep, which means I have my own page on their website + I have a 10% off discount link especially for you. As a rep I recommend products I’ve tried and the ones I love. (I would never recommend something I dislike) And if I’m being completely transparent, a SMALL portion of your portion goes towards my commission.

Glossier came out with the skincare edit, which is basically a compilation of 6 mini sized products + 2 exclusive glossier wear products.

These mini sized goodies are so cute and literally will fit in anywhere, especially to my traveling gals + guys!

Let’s talk about skincare.

Hey peeps. Welcome back. Yes, double the dose of posts for this week! Amazing? YES! Oh, and there’s a surprise at the end! [I tried to link some products for you guys!]

To be honest, I never really thought of skincare as important because I always had good skin “great skin”, whatever that is right. I am not at all boasting when I say this. I was just fortunate enough not to have crazy break-outs, black marks, pimples, dark marks etc. However, that led me to feel inferior to taking care of my skin. That’s until I started to get older…(aka NOW) and I really try to do the essentials daily, “eat less junk”–chocolate & candy which is my weakness, make sure to watch my hands at all times before touching my face and just watch what I put on my face. Yeah, the essentials.

I’ve recently been asked, “What is your skincare routine?” and I honestly didn’t know what to say exactly. The reason being I use so minimum of products throughout the week, but only weekends I apply “medium-heavy” makeup. This post aims to just get a bit chatty with some products I’m currently loving, sharing my daily essentials, and getting to know a bit about your favorites!

Products I’m currently loving.

— Glossier’s Balm Dot Com (PREP YOUR LIPS PEOPLE) Fun fact: I use my balm dot come on my hands when I forget my lotion. It’s such a good filler! I won’t lie to y’all.

— Glossier’s Lip Gloss [FAVORITE + another lipgloss. I like to layer like it’s the 1990s lol. #GlossGirl]

— Red Earth’s NEW: Deep Dive Water Essence 

— Glossier’s Wowder [a light powder to calm down a shiny/oily face]

Glossier’s lash slick!

I hope you are having a FAN-TAB-ULOUS week! Guess what? Cheers to the loooong weekend! I know I have been MIA with new blog posts, but it’s graduation season, so life has been super hectic.

Today’s blog post is dedicated to the new and FIRST mascara from glossier. I mean…it was about time! I have been doing glossier tips and recommendation videos all month on my INSTA-stories trying to get everyone in on how dope glossier actually is through LIVE content. However, if you missed anything…you can click HERE and check out my past stories to catch up!

Now let’s get into the main course.

Processed with VSCO with j5 preset

GLOSSY GANG, GLOSSY GANG. Let me re-introduce to my new readers who are clueless about GLOSSIER what it actually is. Glossier is a company that centers around Y(OUR) skin. They have beauty, makeup, and skincare products…along with fragrances! If you’re looking for makeup that’s really lightweight, try glossier. Like I stressed in my insta-stories, glossier makeup products were made to enhance our natural skin because they want us to love the skin we are in. That alone should have gotten you interested!

REVIEW TIME…

Let me tell you an honest review about the new LASH SLICK! Fun fact: Many people cannot say lash slick 5x…including myself hahaha! 

Here’s a funny video applying lash slick…The struggle is real putting on mascara on camera! I also applied Glossier’s LIDSTAR, but I’ll save that video for another day hahaha!

PROS:

—It made my lashes appear to be longer. I’m always looking for a mascara that enhances and lengthens my lashes, so this was a plus for me!

—It is an everyday mascara.

—The wand honeeeyyy! It was made specifically to endure ALL types of stubborn lashes! Hahaha. No seriously…check out glossier’s story behind how they chose the wand.

—BONUS: Best part is that it has an easy to remove formula that all girls loveeeee and want. Coming home after a long day and being able to get your mascara off easily? Please swing that mascara my way!

—It’s only $16 bucks!

Processed with VSCO with j5 preset

CONS

—It requires two coats for serious “LOOK AT ME” vibes. It’s almost a ‘barely there’ type of mascara with one coat!

—It feels super light like nothing is in there, but that’s minor.

—I may need to buy another soon because I use it so often! Hahaha.

Try it out.

Give it a go.

Test it for yourself.

I’m just giving you guys my honest opinion on it.

Hope it helped!
