Alloy Budget Haul

Budget Hauls are something I started on my youtube channel. Normally, I pick two numbers out of a jar (from 1 to 10) and head to my shopping destination with my budget in mind. There is also a “blank check” card, which allows me to spend whatever I want. It’s simply a fun way to keep me in check. Because I do them via video, my viewers get a chance to see what I bought with my budget that day. However, this time I’m doing an online budget haul from, and because the sale is time sensitive, I wanted to give you a chance to check it out should you be interested. You can save 30% on jeans, but the sale ends today. I’ve never bought jeans from but after hearing that they offer 37” inseams for those with long legs, I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to get a deal on a pair.

I used to pick my budget

alloyhaul$94! I was crossing my fingers for decent budget and this is perfect. Sometimes when I do online budget hauls I exclude the shipping price from the budget. But to give myself a challenge, I decided to include it this time. This limits me, but it also makes it more fun.

Let’s see what I got with my budget…


Royal Blue Flap Pocket Skinny Jeans

Since jeans were the reason for the haul in the first place, they were my top priority. These ones were 19.90 on sale.

Micha Boot

michabootI’ve wanted these boots since the start of May. They are just so country-girl-in-the-summertime cute! I’m hoping they look just as lovely in person otherwise I might be quite disappointed considering that I find them a little pricier than I would like…$59.90. That price isn’t out of this world, but they kind of fit into the novelty category, and there are a lot of other places I could put $60 so I just hope I get a lot of use from them.

I was lucky enough to find a discount code, which brought my cost down!

I usually shop there for their shoes (they are always so comfy). Hence, even though I could have spent more, nothing else really caught my eye without knocking me way off my budget. And it’s a good thing I didn’t add another item because…

We usually get slammed with heavy shipping fees as compared to the States. is one site where it almost pays to spend more, or do group hauls. My shipping cost is more than my jeans.

However, I’m under budget and I really excited about both the items I bought.

If you would like me to post pics of either item or review them let me know in the comments.

Also for those wondering, the coupon code I used is: ARFRMN

Thanks for stopping by and reading this post.

Hand Painted Pastel Galaxy Tee

Hand Painted Pastel Galaxy Tee

WeAreHairyPeople is an etsy shop that offers hand painted clothing like the top above. I stumbled upon it recently and was smitten not just by this top but several of the items in the shop. This hand painted galaxy tee however is perfect for spring. I love the colors! It’s beautifully handpainted and designed. To me, it looks like one of those tops that you didn’t know you needed, until you have it and then it becomes all you ever wear. For those trying out the soft grunge look, or if you just like to be among the stars, this tee is a great fit for the wardrobe.
