I am so excited that the trend of ‘spider lashes’ are back!! They have to be done right or they look HORRIBLE, but they remind me of Twiggy which means I immediately fall in love with them. Think you could get away with this trend?

Let’s face it :: We don’t all have thousands of dollars to drop on one outfit. If you’re like me, you spend time drooling over celebrity outfits, shoes, bags and accessories, while dreaming what it would be like to walk into SAKS and nonchalantly drop 4k on a pair of red soled shoes. Enter 2-year old, mortgage, electric bill, furniture, heat, A/C, water bill, phone bill, groceries (holy cost of rising food!), cable, internet, car payment and the occasional bottle of Pinot Noir, and it doesn’t leave much spare change for decadence or designer duds. Let’s be honest. Sometimes life just buts into your fantasy!

However, it doesn’t mean you have to have a million bucks to look like a million bucks. So, here is my attempt. Sorry in advance for the self-glamour shot. No one was around! Let me surprise you with the price breakdown:

  • Albany shoppingPink Silk Skirt. Forever21, $24.90
  • Black Pump Stilettos. FifteenDollarStore, $15.00
  • Black Tights. Boscovs, $4.00
  • Black Leotard. Forever21, $12.00

The entire outfit for just $55.90. Affordable?

Super excited about my newest purchase. My sister-in-law was over the other day and I couldn’t help but notice her sparkly new watch. If I had to guess the price I would have said $2,058 (I like to either be on point or way off). I drooled in jealousy knowing that I just can’t justify that sort of luxury purchase right now with everything we have going on in the house. To my surprise she spit out a price tag of $250. Even better news? She found it on Amazon for right around the $200 mark. Hers was white gold but I ordered mine in Rose Gold to go with last year’s anniversary gift from H Stern.  I just love the style of a boyfriend sized watch with a feminine color of the peachy gold. It also got awesome reviews which is a plus of ordering it on Amazon.
