Closet Creativity

Hello friends! And welcome to another installment of my thriftiness/thankfulness marathon labeled as closet creativity! I hope my efforts to shop my closet help you think of ways you can also do the same! Today I’m sharing a new (yet old) outfit I created from my closet and I really had some fun! First I…

Shopping my closet for Pink

Hello Friends! I thought I would start out the week right by sharing a recent shopping trip to my own closet! I have a pink pleated skirt (Asos) a pink sweater (H&M) both from last year and I love pink! I got some inspiration from my friend @trinagrand to wear all one color as a…

Renewed Thriftiness and Thankfulness

Hello Friends! How are you all doing? Did you survive Thanksgiving weekend and Black Friday?? I try to get a lot or most of my Christmas shopping done that weekend to spend more time enjoying the holiday season, but I still have six gifts left to purchase; which is not too bad out of 22 people we (me and hubs) have on our gift list this year. I am so blessed with a wonderful family and great friends that I am happy to be out shopping for them. Although my thanksgiving was less than ideal (see my “Thanksgiving Debacle” post)…

Thanksgiving Debacle

Hello friends! I’ve recovered from thanksgiving (I wasn’t planning on needing to recover so it took a whole day) and I thought I would share 😉 I decided previous to thanksgiving that I’ve baked for enough years that I would like to relax a bit. So I did some searching online and found a local…

Product Review for Black Friday!

Hello friends! Happy Thanksgiving Eve! I thought I would share a review of two beauty products I purchased from Sephora, just in case you want to do some shopping on Friday (that might be a good time, it happens to coincide with SEVERAL BIG sales!) LOL I purchased the Norvina by Anastasia palette and Best…

Thankful for a Broke Down TV

Hello friends! I am just sitting down after a great dinner celebrating my daughter in law’s birthday. We made a enchilada casserole and bought chips and salsa from our favorite restaurant. (On the Home front our smart tv died and that is the biggest blessing this holiday!) 😆 We spent the whole evening talking and…

The Whole Naked 2 Palette

Hello Friends! I’ve been conflicted lately! I love Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette, but struggle using the other colors besides my four go to colors: bootycall, tease, snakebite, and half baked. These are all great, amazing, and flattering colors BUT I want to make use of the rest of the palette. It’s a pretty penny to use only four out of 12 colors. I mean REALLY! So…in getting ready for my Halloween Morticia makeup, I discovered a smoky eye I can use three more colors on my Naked 2 palette! Yay! I use foxy on my lid, pistol on the…

Faux Fur Fun

Hello friends and welcome! It’s starting to get brrrrrr cold here (there was a bitter wind blowing today-went right through me) and I wanted to share how fun faux fur can be and stay warm at the same time! Score! Plus it’s so trendy right now which is a big bonus! First I have my…

The Trendy Duster

Hello friends and happy Wednesday! (Congratulations for making it halfway through the work week!) 😂 #reallifeproblems am I right?? Today I’m sharing a super trendy (youthful) look that women my age can totally rock! I discovered dusters last winter and again this summer and I love how they transform any outfit! This summer I wore…

Cara Mia Halloween

Oh hi friends! I so wanted to share my Halloween style this year! It was a crazy few weeks but it all came together and I was so excited!! So a couple months ago, you might remember I changed my hair and got super long extensions which made me think of Morticia Addams- one of…
