TBB Asks - All the Shopping

Yay for March and the warmer temps I'm willing to come our way!!! This month on one of my very favourite link ups, TBB Asks, it's all about shopping! Yep, another favourite topic of mine. Here we go!

Top 3 Shops
Hmmmm. They totally differ whether it's online or in-store but if I had to choose top three overall it would be Amazon, Target (I even cross the border for it) and Nordstrom (both regular and Rack). Honorary mention goes to Sephora.

2- In-Store or online
Online for sure! I'm a total convert for the convenience and reviews.  But I make an exception in-store for Target. 

3- Favourite things to shop for
Another tough one but I'd have to say clothes for my kids! If there's a second place, as there is so often is it's makeup and skin care for myself! Then followed by maybe clothes for me.

4- What do you just hate shopping for?
Appliance shopping can be a long and somewhat tedious process but it's so long term, we have to do it from time to time. 

5- What's your favourite thing you've ever bought...
Ohhhh that's so tough! It might be two winter coats I bought almost ten years ago during a major black Friday sale - one white and one grey. I got one for less than $40 and one for less than $80 and I still get compliments for them-- especially the cheaper one!

6- Do you prefer shopping alone or with others?
Maybe alone. Though a second opinion is lovely for bigger purchases!

7- Biggest bargain?
See above... Oh and this warmest winter Gap jacket that I got for C when she was 18 months that two or three  other kids used after.... I think I paid a little over $20 for it! 

Let me take a minute to be a little sad that babies don't keep!

8- Thrift stores?
No, I haven't but so many people have such success with it. I don't know if I have the eye for it. 

 9- Best Cities for shopping?
The World Wide Web. LOL. Seriously, with globalisation, I'm okay!

1- Who's your fashion icon?
Well, I really struggled with this one but I love the fashion choices that Amal Clooney, Victoria Beckham and Charlotte York!

Happy Monday, friends! Make your week a wonderful one!


  1. I prefer shopping alone as well. I love your icon choices...beauties, just like you!

  2. Amal Clooney- love it. Your picks are so unique. Thanks for linking up!

  3. So fun! I miss shopping for my kids' clothes! I am much better shopping alone too!

  4. Great choice for city to shop in! I like Amazon city, lol!

  5. I do enjoy shopping alone but sometimes I like shopping with friends. It all depends on my mood. I love Victoria Beckham, she has such great style.

  6. Great answers!! Love the World Wide Web! And that is an awesome winter coat...timeless!! Thanks for linking up!!

  7. Appliance shopping isn't necessarily my favorite either and in the last two years we've had to replace a good 1/2 dozen of them! Ouch!

  8. Online shopping all the way! The only thing I really want to venture to the store for are for bathing suits/underwear to make sure they fit but once I know my sizes then online it is. Same goes for makeup like foundation or eye shadow since it's hard to tell if the colors are right for you.

  9. Just currently wrote this post too and I'd love for you to read my answers too. Love all of your bargain coats and your fashion icon choices!

  10. That coat is gorgeous! I love when I find something for a great price that fits like a glove. And Amal Clooney is an incredible fashion icon! Always so effortless and chic. Hope you have a great week :)


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
