I have a ton to be thankful for this year, like every year! Thanksgiving is a fabulous time to reflect on your accomplishments, your life, family and friends because it is close to the end of the year, but not so close that your head is clogged with all of that Christmas/New Years mombo jombo. New Years seems like almost too much pressure to either say a resolution or look back at your fondest memory from the year. That’s why, this Thanksgiving, that’s what I’ll be doing.

I thought I might just jump right in and list what I am thankful for most this year:

Let’s get started.

How I prep my skin for the cold using Aveeno products

IMG_1134.JPG

Just in time for time for the colder weather, a package from Aveeno showed up on my doorstep!

Two years ago when I was having trouble with my skin, I went to the dermatologist and she recommended some Aveeno products to me. Ever since that day, I have been hooked on this quality, affordable and clean drugstore brand. I got my mom hooked on it, my roommate and even my boyfriend! All of their products are so gentle that you simply cannot go wrong. Their facial cleanser and clear complexion moisturizer cleared up the problems I was having with my skin at the time so I am forever loyal to them!

Before receiving these three products, I had been using their clear complexion moisturizer anyways and now, I just have more Aveeno products to add to my collection! Let’s get into them:

How I Shop on a Budget

Hi everyone! How are you all doing? I am almost at 100 followers here on WordPress and honestly, I cannot believe it. I am so excited you are all enjoying my content enough to follow along—so it means a lot to me!

Today I am sharing How I Shop on a Budget. My friends, family and sometimes people I don’t even know that well are always asking me, how do you have such nice clothes but you confess that you don’t spend a lot of money?

Well, I will let you in on my BIG secret. Here it goes (and you may think this is wacky, but it’s how ya girl stays on a budget): I have little price-points in my head for every article of clothing and if it meets that price-point or falls below it, I will usually get it (and that’s only if I am completely in love with the item or actually need it). If it’s above, well it better be a MUST HAVE or I am NOT getting it. Below I will share my price points for different clothing items that the price MUST fall below. *This is for everyday/weekend wear (meaning, if it is an important event, no, I don’t cap my dress price at $25.)*

My newest finds + purchases

Hi everyone! Long time no blog! Today I wanted to share my newest finds and purchases because well, I have been using these 4 things religiously! I love when I purchase something and it really impacts my every day life, because that means it was an investment. I almost laugh at the word investment because I never purchase anything over $20…but for me, investment.
