    Thrifty Thursday – Spring Shopping*

    Thursdays are so much more exciting than they ever used to be. I look forward to writing this post all week–I just hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them! :) Today is an especially fabulous Thursday as it’s my mom’s birthday! (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!) For some reason I thought that I had missed it… I spent all day yesterday thinking that it was the 31st. I tried calling my mom three times last night but I couldn’t get through, and I went to bed feeling like the worst daughter ever as I hadn’t wished my mother a happy birthday. So, I called this morning in…

    Thrifty Thursday – The Red Purse*

    This was a very exciting thrifting week for me, and I only went out once! I finally found something that I have been looking for for a very long time: The Red Purse. I’m not talking about any old red purse–I’m talking about a red purse in the right shade of red, in the right size, in the right design–one that I can wear with multiple outfits when I want to add a punch of colour. I did find a really cute red Radley Handbag when I did my accessories challenge a few weeks ago, but it’s more of an “outfit purse”. It needs to be worn with a specific…

    Thrifty Thursday – Shrug Sweaters*

    So, I didn’t get the job. …but let’s not talk about that. It’s Thursday! Hooray! I’ve barely had any time to go out thrift shopping in the last few weeks, and it makes me very sad. The roller coaster that is my life keeps hurtling forward at a breakneck speeds and it’s all I can do to hang on and not fall off. But at least I can look good while doing it. ;) My lovelies, I’ve developed a love for “shrug sweaters”. I’m not even sure if that’s the correct name for them, but when I think of them that’s what I think (and that’s also what google tells…

    Six Months + Six Dresses (#1)

    Hi lovelies! I’ve been waiting allllll week to write today’s post! (And then I went out with Dee tonight and left myself no time to write it. ha) Confession: I don’t own very many dresses. If I had an occasion where I needed to dress up or look extra nice, I currently have about two dress options to choose from. Seriously. For some reason I’ve always been afraid to wear dresses. I think that part of it comes from the fact that there are certain things I avoid when wearing dresses… for example, I prefer dresses that have capped or long sleeves, and my ideal length reaches just above my…

    Thrifty Thursday – Pink Pumps*

    Last weekend the Hubster and I went north to see my family and meet my beautiful new nephew, Hugh. After a long visit with Peeah at her house, we all left so that she and her husband could get the kids to bed. It was roughly 8pm, and my dad (who is a pro thrifter–he finds amazing deals) asked me if I had made it to Goodwill yet that day. When I answered that I hadn’t had time, he reminded me that it was a 50% off day and asked me if I wanted to go. We dropped the Hubster off at their house, then my mom, dad and I…
