Back To School Shopping At 5th Avenue Mall



To get started, I was provided a gift card from the 5th Avenue Mall to participate in their fun activities and make a post about it. So really, I did something that I was already going to do (back to school shopping) but now it was combined with fun things for the girls (the picture above is deceiving - we should have probably made them stop chewing their gummy snacks before snapping photos) and then write about it. If you're in the Anchorage area and didn't make it to the event on the 12th, good news! The 5th Avenue Mall will also be holding it on the 19th. If you're just here for outfit details scroll to the bottom. :)

What kinds of fun activities put kids in a good shopping mood?


Well, Sephora gave the girls princess makeup in their favorite colors, The Body Shoppe provided yummy smelling sprays and lotions, and Claire's gave them glittery colored hair and some fun accessories for the photo booth. 



The mall provided free snacks and props for the photos booth. The photo is texted to you which is really nice! There were also some live mannequins modeling clothing, a Susan G. Komen table, and a handy list of which stores are having back-to-school discounts. This weekend JCPenney will be there offering haircuts. The activities are smack dab in the middle of Lush, Nordstrom, and Lululemon so even though we were there for the kids mom was pretty happy too. haha!

The girls were so pumped after their fun they decided they all wanted matching shoes. These ones:



Funny girls.
