Glam Home Office Tour

About My Desk:
Desk: Wayfair| Chair: Amazon| Photos: Target/HomeGoods| Lamp: Target| Storage Boxes: Target
 Hello, Dolls! Happy Friday and Happy December, I hate to start a post at the end of the week but I've decided to no longer do this thing called, WAIT! I am the queen of "I'll do it when...." Prime example is actually my office. I decided to post these pictures before I change up this space yet AGAIN. I finished my home office back in September but never posted the pics before well, who knows! I could have decided not to post these pics for something as simple as the wires are showing behind the desk or the lines in the carpet aren't straight or because I forgot to put a picture in a frame. Well here it is months later and this space has already changed and these poor pics nearly went to waste.

Here's the thing, for the next 21 days I'm going to be choosing progress over perfection! The picture isn't perfect? Post it anyway! Posting something and getting better with time is much more productive than waiting FOREVER to do any one thing. Be sure to follow me on my Instagram HERE because  I will be posting every single day for the next 21 days. I know that doesn't seem like a lot to most bloggers and it shouldn't. But me, on the other hand, has a habit of posting once a week if that. I haven't set a goal for my blog just yet but I know planning out my Instagram content will ultimately allow me to be more organized with my blog content so it should be a WIN WIN. I truly struggle with consistency in ALL things but especially on social media. I plan on changing that going into this New Year. Nothing wrong with getting started on your 2019 goals a little early.

Please let me know your thoughts down below and I would love to know what goals you're getting started on right now! Happy Friday and have a beautiful weekend, dolls.

How to Decorate your Christmas Tree on a Budget

How to Decorate your Christmas Tree on a Budget
Every year I am giddy with excitement to decorate my home for Christmas. I love being creative with my tree and creating great holiday memories. The more whimsical the better for me! But one thing is for sure it can add up big time when decorating a tree or even your whole house. Here are a few of my tips and tricks to save money during this time.

SHOP MY TREE:


Tip #1: Shop After Christmas sales! This step will require a bit of patience and vision. First, it is likely most of the good stuff is sold out after Christmas. However, if it’s not you can score some pretty amazing deals once Christmas is over. For instance, if you know your current tree is on its last leg and you will need to replace it next year it might be a good idea to do that now while it’s on sale for 70% off. You will thank yourself for being prepared and saving a few coins along the way.

Tip#2: Use coupons! I typically get 70% of my Christmas decorations from Micheal’s or Target. Both of them I have the app downloaded on my phone with post notifications turned on for coupon deals. My favorite coupon from Michaels is the 50% off your entire order. It is a gem and I feel they have the best stuff but you need to shop early. The good stuff goes fast, trust me!

Tip #3: Shop Discount Stores! As much as we love the BIG BOX stores for decorations please don’t forget the discount stores in your area. You will be surprised by what you can find at your local Dollar Tree or Big Lots. At Big Lots, items are heavily discounted and pretty darn cute. Many of my ornaments came from Big Lots this year. The diamond rings, large textures gold balls, snowflakes, and stars all came from Big Lots for no more than 6 dollars a pack!


Tip #4: DIY IT!! Look, there is nothing wrong with faking it til you make it or creating a beautiful unique piece for your tree. I love to DIY ornaments and the Tree Skirt. The tree skirt can be expensive, VERY expensive! My DIY solution is to take a cute throw blanket and pillows to create volume. I found THIS cute throw blanket at Target for 9.99 that will work great as a tree skirt. Typical tree skirts run upwards of $40 dollars. No Thank You!

So there you have it, a fabulous tree on a budget! Happy hunting and enjoy the process. I hope you found these tips helpful. If I missed any gems please leave them below I would love to know your money saving techniques down in the comments!

Fall Fashion at Wal-Mart!






Shop the Look:
Sherpa Pullover: Here | Leggings: Here | Suede Booties: Similar | Turtleneck: Target          
Bag: Botkier


HELLO THERE DOLLS!!! Long time no chat my loves! It's been a minute but today I have someTHANG to share with ya'll. Fall has arrived and while I'm on my current fitness journey (more to come on that later) I've been having fun finding affordable, fun and chic options to add to my Fall/Winter wardrobe. To my surprise, one of my current favorite places to shop is none other than WALMART. Yes, WALMART! If you haven't browsed around their clothing section in a while,  I recommend you do so in the near future. I found a lot of trendy pieces at crazy affordable prices I think you all would love.

A couple of my favorite Fall finds is this super cozy fleece pullover and khaki green leggings. I love that this pullover came in a size wide so I can be extra comfortable and have room for layers underneath. Not to mention this thing is sooooo soft and warm. It also came in 4 colors because whenyou find a good thing....buy it in every color!? Isn't that the motto?? No? Just mine? Ok moving on to my next favorite, these leggings. The leggings I picked up because 1. I'm in love with khaki green this season and 2. the design was super cute to me. I will say the fit is not as great as my Fabletics leggings by no means but they are comfortable and very on trend. I also work out in them with no VPL (visible panty line) issues. They do tend to slide down a bit and I have to adjust them more than my higher quality leggings so keep that in mind. 

I styled this look with a striped turtleneck underneath and brown ankle booties to elevate the casual look. This look will surely be a repeat for me this Fall so feel free to head to Wal-Mart to recreate it. 

Now I am in no way sponsored by Wal-Mart in anyway but I will be sharing with you some other amazing finds I picked up recently. Oh and don't worry Wallyworld isn't the only place I've been loving, stay tuned to see what I recently scored at Mango recently! ;-) 

Until next post loves, take care! Muah <3

OOTD: Summer Uniform

What I'm Wearing:
Jeans: Charlotte Russe | Band Tee: Boohoo.com | Heels: Shoedazzle.com (old) | Bag: Botkier Cobble Hill Crossbody via Bloomingdale's | Necklace: Nordstrom
Well, would you look at this, an outfit look over here on the blog? I know it's been a good minute since I've shared my style. Honestly, it's been because of nonstop insecurities and self-doubt. The toll gaining weight can take on your mental is truly impactful and one that shouldn't be ignored.

I can honestly say that I'm finally in a good place where I feel confident enough to share these pics and more importantly share this struggle with you guys. It's easy to post when you're feeling your best but the true test is to have the perseverance to post when you do not. Change is the only thing guaranteed in this world, so you need to embrace it and KEEP GOING!

So with that being said, this look has been my summer uniform as of late. Minus the heels. I did that for ya'll LOL I'm usually in furry slides (judge yoself ma'am!), classic sneaks or a wedge if I'm feeling fancy! I have been loving a super casual Jeans and Tee look all summer long. Too self-conscience for shorts these plus size jeans from Charlotte Russe are a FAV of mine at the moment. Accessorize with jewelry, shades and a good bag and you have a LOOK hunni!

What have you guys been wearing this summer? I want to know what your 'summer uniform' consists of. Also, are you sad or glad to see summer go and fall fashions to move on in? Sound off below, let's chat!

P.S. Please excuse the quality of these pics, I totally took them with iPhone and mini tripod! *kanye shrug*
