TIE DYE DIY

TIE DYE DIY

Never did I think that Tie Dye would come back into style. When I was a kid, no matter the vacation I would always get a souvenir Tie Dye shirt. Since my teen years, I thought tie dye was too juvenile and never wore it again. Fast forward to today, I am seeing it everywhere and it’s growing on me. I have seen a couple of cute long sleeve shirts and crops that I really like, when I went to buy what I had my eye on, I saw the price…. it was $55 for a pink tie dye shirt and $60 for a teal long sleeve… No thanks. As always my thought process is, “I can do this myself and make it look the same for half the cost”. I feel like I can’t be the only one who doesn’t want to spend $100 on a tie dye shirt, so I decided to make a “how to” blog post!

A LAZY GIRL’S GUIDE TO BLACK FRIDAY

A LAZY GIRL’S GUIDE TO BLACK FRIDAY

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!

Happy Shopping!

AFFORDABLE FALL SWEATERS

AFFORDABLE FALL SWEATERS

I can’t believe it’s already the middle of October, summer went by so fast, and it’s finally starting to feel like Fall in Chicago! Do you know what that means? It’s finally sweater weather and it’s time to stock up! In the past I have struggled with finding sweaters that were good quality but also affordable. My style changes a bit from year to year so I try not to spend a lot of money on things I may not wear the next year, I can’t justify spending over $100 on a sweater. If you’re the same way, you’re in luck, I have found some affordable and ADORABLE sweaters. I tried to find pieces that were under $50. Vici Collection, Vestique, and Forever 21 are my favorites right now! You can shop all of the sweaters I found below, if I find a coupon code I will list it for you!

Happy shopping!!  Continue reading “AFFORDABLE FALL SWEATERS”
