Fall Haul! Shoes, Fashion, Beauty, Skincare & Health

I hope you guys are in the mood for a little haulage. I personally love to see what people buy and get ideas and inspiration. I already did a haul this month (found here), not sure if I should feel guilty.. #shopaholic !? I will provide links to products where possible.

This is a small haul of items that I purchased over this past weekend. I wanted to share it right away as many of the items are from Winners and you know how quickly their items can sell out. To my US readers, Winners is the same company as TjMaxx and Marshalls, so you can often find the same items at all 3 stores.

Catherine Malandrino shoes

I needed some nude flats and these are quite trendy but I decided to take a chance on them as they were on clearance. The brand is Catherine Malandrino. I've heard of this brand but never purchased from them. These felt really comfortable in the store and I'm hoping they will be just as comfortable once I start wearing them.

These shoes actually came completely covered in pom-poms of all colours and sizes. I was not a fan but I could picture the shoe without them, so I immediately pulled them all off and I'm so happy with what was hiding underneath. I should have taken a before picture but I didn't know I'd actually be showing these in a haul. Here are a few of the pom-poms and tassels that I kept for my cat to play with... at least they didn't go to waste!

Catherine Malandrino Shoes- Cost $15, regular $40, compare at price $60. 

Pom-poms and tassels from the shoes!

Able Top

I needed this lighting so you could see the detail at the neckline. It has a cutout that makes this top really stylish but still casual. I can see it with some skinny jeans and even some strategically placed jewellery. I really love this top but I do have to try and stop buying black all the time. The brand is Able and it's made in the USA.

I spotted these in the food section at Winners. It's a powdered peanut butter where they press roasted nuts to remove the oils. Although, I'm not against eating healthy fats I just wanted to try this for my protein smoothies. I've tried other similar brands and didn't like them. This one tastes amazing in my smoothies and it adds some more protein and nutrition to my drinks. This brand is non-GMO and gluten-free.

Tru-Nut Powdered Peanut Butter- Cost $7 each, regular $13, compare at $17

The Body Shop
The Body Shop

I haven't shopped at The Body Shop in years! Recently, I tried some samples of The Body Shop's new face masks and decided to pick up the Himalayan Charcoal one. I also wanted to try their new Lightening Shade Adjusting Drops as I have some BB creams that are too dark and I don't want to waste them. I signed up for The Body Shop emails and was pleasantly surprised when I was sent a 50% off coupon. Reviews to come on these products.

Shade Adjusting Drops- Cost $11, regular $22
Himalayan Charcoal Mask- Cost $14, regular $28

-I finally ended up using Ebates which I never think to do. It saved me an additional $6 on the Body Shop order as I got 12% back based on the regular prices. I have to use Ebates more!

If you want to sign up for Ebates, you can get $5 just for signing up (click here to sign up).

That's it for this week. I think I got some great deals. I hope you enjoyed seeing what I purchased this week.

  1. I've seen that Tru-Nut stuff many times too at Winners/Home Sense but never did the leap yet. Just may knowing you love it in smoothies, I'm sure I would too. OOOOH don't ya just love scoring the "red sticker" items too ! I always feel like I won or something lol - sweet haul Amy :)

    1. I LOVE the Tru-Nut butter! Like I said in the post, I've tried other brands, a really popular one and I didn't like it. This one is great! It's good alone or with my cococeps that I always talk about. I love the clearance racks at Winners, always make a Bee-line for them! haha xo

  2. I loooove the shoes!


  3. Great finds Amy! Love Winner's for their little treasures :) I have Ebates and use them whenever I can. It's great to get money back, although I have yet to get a cheque from them lol Just means I need to do some more shopping ;)

    1. LOL on more shopping! I need to stop! I always forget to use Ebates though.. this is the one time that I remembered. I found more at Winners after this.. think I have a problem! haha

  4. The shoes look WAY better without the pom poms - don't know what the hell the designer was thinking by adding pom poms to an otherwise nice pair of shoes! I bought a nice scarf from a Winners store in Toronto when I was there 2 years ago, didn't know they were the same company as TJ Maxx & Marshalls.

    1. LOL... I kept thinking the same thing.. what were they thinking!? There's a nice pair of shoes under all those pompoms! I really wish I got a before picture, they were COVERED in them! And, it made it impossible to get them on
