Happy Monday & President’s day! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. I had a super busy weekend, work, exercising, guest and of course my newest obsession budgeting! If you are off today, lucky you, I am at the office working hard for my money, lol! If you have been following me for a while, then you know I love retro clothing. Although I am not girlie girl, but when it comes to retro clothing I’m all in. I love to find unique pieces that flatter my figure. I found this amazing skirt at my local thrift store for $3.99 and could not pass it up.
Happy Friday! It has been a long week and it’s going to be an even longer weekend for me. I am working this weekend in an effort to help me on my debt free journey. As usual Alabama has decided it wants to have some winter weather after all the nice weather we’ve been having lately. As result, I want to start collecting more winter staple pieces, ones that will last me for years to come. I made sure to catch them on sale, I love to save money and one way is to keep an eye out for great end of season sale.
As you guys will recall I talked about my goals for 2017 in my New Year, Bigger Dreams post a couple of weeks ago. One those goals was to save more money, in order to start saving I must look back at my financial story. I was always good a saving money and finding great deals. I started working at the age 14 ,I have only been unemployed for 1 month in past 23 years. Although I had a stable work history my finances were a mess!
So I am newly divorced after being married for 14 years. Although I have spent several Valentine Days alone during that time, it is still hard. Looking back its makes me sad to remember those sad and lonely feelings I felt on that day. But don’t be like me, it is ok to take your time to grieve a lost love or remember a failed relationship, but don’t stay there you eventually have to move on.
Happy Monday! It is a gloomy rainy day here in Alabama, so I thought I would brighten it up today with this winter white outfit. Winter white is a color that is hard to pull off; I also wanted to try it but didn’t have enough courage to actually do it. As you may know or if you’re new here, I am breaking down my comfort walls and stepping outside of my box this year and this outfit is definitely out of my comfort zone!
Happy Friday! Another work week gone and the weekend is ours to conquer. Planning to work on some blog post and record a couple of videos this weekend. I’ve been invited to a super bowel party I’m not huge football fan, but hey free food and friends can’t go wrong with that. If you’ve been following for awhile you know I’m drawn to retro styles. I have posted a couple of post here and here showcasing some vintage clothing I have styled.
Happy February 1st, tomorrow is my one month blogging anniversary and I have learned so much! I have actually connected with some amazing bloggers this month and looking forward to more connections and meetings in the future. Today we are talking about patterned pants. Many people love the idea and have even admired patterned pants, but never really knew how to style them. Many shoppers are intimidated by the idea of purchasing patterned pants. As a result some choose not to wear them. Being a fellow shopper I too was intimated by patterned pants.
A lot of people argue that wearing leggings is not appropriate in the work place. Some companies have gone as far as banning them from the office. This comes as no surprise because some individuals just don’t know how to wear them.
Everyone needs a good pants suit in their closet. It is an essential for a any working professional. A good pants suit fits and flatter in all the right places, the sleeves and pants should be an appropriate length. An ill fitting suit is just unacceptable in a professional setting. Therefore you must find the perfect pant suit.
Music is a powerful thing! It has been in existence for a long time, and has been continuously affecting people in different ways. Music possesses the power to influence people’s moods, it inspires uplifts, heals and soothes the soul creating a relaxed feeling.
