I've been wanting a gold chain necklace for a while now. I'm still looking since this one isn't as long as I'd wanted. I found this in a thrift store for only $3.99! Of course I couldn't leave it there!
We know Michael Kors watches are all the rave right now, right? I love the look of a gold MK watch with bangles and bracelets. However, I don't love the look enough to spend the money! This watch? $12.99 from my favorite place.... Target!
I found these at Walmart for no more than $1.50 per pair. Guess what... They were buttons! Yep! I clipped off the backs and attached earring backs? (or whatever they're called) using a hot glue gun. The black and gold pair is my favorite!
I love a good deal! Talk to you ladies later!

Last Friday, two of my best friends and I went to Applebees's for drinks and a very late birthday celebration! I always have a good time with these girls. I wish we could do this more often! Here are a few outfit pics.
*I was rushing and didn't feel in my brows. o_0 I was hesitant to post these pics. Lol!

We wouldn't be us without a little craziness!

So there was a lot of hype around the Beautiful Textures line when it was released a couple of months ago. I read a lot of reviews and praises! If you remember from this post, I sang my own praises about their Moisture Butter Whipped Curl Creme. Since I liked it so much, I contemplated trying the shampoo.
For the first 14 months of being natural, I only used the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus shampoo, so that was all I knew. (I'm far from a product junkie. I find what works for me and stick with it). But any who... I heard someone on YouTube mention that the SM shampoo made their hair feel very stripped. Again... it was all I knew... so I didn't think much of it.
Later on, I read a review saying how moisturizing the Beautiful Textures shampoo is, so I decided to try it out. The verdict? I.LOVE.IT. With this shampoo my hair is clean without that squeaky stripped feeling that I got from the SM shampoo. A bonus? It's a little less expensive! I'm all about saving when I can!
As for the ingredients, it's definitely not all natural. Good thing that doesn't matter to me! If you care to know what ingredients are in the shampoo... take a gander!
The shampoo retails for about $7. It can be found at Walmart, Sally's, or your local beauty supply store. Let me know if you decide to try it or you have already!
Hey, ladies! I've received my first Influenster VoxBox!
I signed up for Influenster thinking that I wouldn't be chosen (at least not any time soon) due to the "small scale" of my blog. So I was really excited when I received the email notifying me that I was selected to receive the Spring Beauty VoxBox. It made me feel official! Lol!
The back of the card lists each item in the box and a description. I've only tried two of the items, so this post is really just to show the products in the Spring Beauty VoxBox. I'll do a separate post (within the next couple of weeks) once I've had a chance to try out everything.
Sheer Cover Duo Concealer - I haven't heard of this brand, so I don't have much to say until I try it.
I'm reluctant to try this. I'm very particular about my lip balm! Lol! We'll see how it goes!
o_O The way it looks on the packaging has me thinking it will be awful. I hope I'm wrong!
I use the Aveeno Daiy Moisturizing Lotion on my face, so I have high expectations of this.
I'm excited to try out the Salon effect strips! *Confession: I bought some a couple of months ago and they're still just sitting in the bag.
Sweet Pea from Bath & Body Works - It was one of my favorites a few years ago.
I LOVE Dr. Scholl's! So this should be easy, right?
Talk to you ladies later!
Are you an Influenster?

I haven't done my nails in a while. Mainly because I need a new top coat. I use the Seche Vite and I loved it... at first. But now it's thickened and it goes on in globs! But I can never remember to pick up a new one. But anywho... I got both of these Wet n' Wild polishes from Walgreens for only $0.99 each. I was surprised that I got this coverage with only two coats.
What's with the one long nail, you ask? My pinky nails are the only two that grow, so I never want to cut them. I know it looks crazy, but whatever!
Talk to y'all later!

Hey ladies! I was catching up on my blogs the other day when I saw this post on The Daybook. I fell in love with Sydney's shoes! Now rewind... Remember the post I did on the Jessica Simpson shoes a while back? Here it is ----> Cocoa, Carrack, Cathi, & Cecity. The shoes that Syndey wore reminded me of Cocoa.
Cocoa by Jessica Simpson $98
Katrina-11 by Qupid
I know they're not exactly the same, but for over 50% less, I can deal with that!
I did a Google search and found Katrina-11 on a few different sites. I found the best deal and ordered them from Room of Fashion. I've never heard of the site, so let's hope that goes well! My total was less than $40 and that even included shipping! I hope the shipping doesn't take forever!
Happy Savings ladies!!!

Hey ladies! This is my first post using the new camera. Why didn't anyone tell me that this wouldn't be as easy as I expected? I assumed since I had a new camera I could take a few pictures and be done. WRONG. Here's how it went.
After work I went to Walmart and bought the cheapest tripod that they had. WRONG AGAIN. I got home and realized that I picked up a monopod. Ugh! The other options at Walmart were $30+, so I decided to go to Target to get one. Once I was done the sun had gone down. Getting good pictures in a park full of trees with no sun? It might not be that hard for some, but when you haven't gotten used to camera settings... it's hard. I didn't have the energy to keep playing with different settings. It was also awkward being out there by myself with my tripod. Every time I saw someone coming, I would wait to take the next picture. I took a few shots and gave up.
|It's not the best quality, but I like the look of the picture. I also need to find other locations. I quickly realized that when the ground is wet, it's not the best situation for heels.|
|Still not the best, but it's one of the "better" pictures.|
Since I didn't get many decent shots at the park, I tried out the new setup at home.
|This is my favorite|
|I don't know what was going on with my scarf.|
|Top - Old Navy // Jeans - Levi's // Shoes - Jessica Simpson Waleo // Scarf -Walmart|
Being in front of the camera also wasn't as easy as I expected. The crazy thing about that is that I LOVE taking pictures. But it feels different trying to get the "blogger look"... y'all know that "this-is-my-serious/model-face-and-I'm-not-supposed-to-smile blogger look." Let's hope practice makes perfect!
Anyone have any helpful "photography" tips?
