Working in a cubical is the reality of most jobs. I have always had to work in an assigned work space or cubical. Because so much of my time is spent in a cubical, I try to find ways to make it reflect my personality and feel more “homey”. Though it isn’t a complete renovation, it’s effective and it doesn’t have to be expensive. I have a few tricks that will help you create a work space you won’t hate going to each day.Continue reading “HOW TO PERSONALIZE YOUR WORK SPACE”
Polaroid pictures have been back in style for a while now, getting your hands on a truly vintage Polaroid camera can be expensive, and buying a new one isn’t exactly cheap either. I love the instant photos that Polaroids provide. It’s so fun to take these cameras out on the town or vacation, but I never seem to get a great photo. It usually takes me more than one shot to get a decent picture. I’m still learning how to not have dark or washed out photos using a Polaroid camera, lighting is definitely a struggle for me. The film for the actual camera can range from $1-3+ per photo. That’s insane when you think about how many shots you take on an iPhone to get only one good photo. On my phone, I have 100 photos of the same thing, there’s no way I could afford to take that many photos using a Polaroid camera. If I figure out the secret to taking the perfect photo on a Polaroid camera, I will be sure to let you all know. In the mean time, I found a life hack that will make getting the perfect polaroid so much easier.Continue reading “HOW TO GET A POLAROID PICTURE WITHOUT THE CAMERA”
Let’s talk about Black Friday, every year I reminisce about a time, before smart phones (I know shocking), where I would make a list of the things I was looking for. I’d set my alarm for 4 or 5AM and then head to the mall. Every year I would get a Cinnabon for breakfast and stand in line for hours, waiting to get into Forever 21 and GAP to buy a sweater that was less than $20. My preteen self lived for this day, I have changed a lot since then, and thank goodness! I would rather sleep in on my day off, after eating all of the delicious food the day before. I would also rather do all of my shopping online and have them sent straight to me. Gone are the days of waiting in line and fighting over sweaters out of bins!
I have created a guide of some of the retailers, what their sales will be, and the codes/dates you need to save money! I’m calling it the lazy girl’s guide to Black Friday, or maybe it’s just for people who want to get their full night’s sleep and not be trampled by a crowd of sleep deprived strangers. Call it what you like, but it will help you navigate the craziness that is Black Friday/Cyber Monday!

Is anyone else wondering where spring is hiding?? I had a photo shoot planned for a spring outfit post, but the day I had time it was 30° outside. As much as I enjoy taking pictures, I didn’t feel the need to freeze. I am so ready for warmer weather, since I had no such luck, I improvised with a different outfit. Why waste a good lighting, right? In the shoot I tried out my “new” coat, this coat is from a thrift store and I absolutely love it! It is a thick wool with a hand stitched satin lining in brand new condition, and the best part is that I only paid $7 for it! There is a trick to seeking out “good finds” at a thrift store… Continue reading “THE KEY TO THRIFT SHOPPING”
