As you may have gathered, I am a bit of a shopaholic, but I’m also a huge deal hunter. I believe in treating yourself to the things you love, but also being really responsible with finances. Finding great deals takes some extra leg work and sometimes a lot of patience. But if you’re willing to take a few extra steps, you can get all the excitement of a splurge, without the hefty cost!
Keep reading for some of my secrets to scoring deals on beauty, fashion, and home decor!
This year, you might not be thinking about spending a lot on a new fall wardrobe. Whether you aren’t going out as much, or trying to stick to a budget, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style! I’ve recently been eyeing some fun looks that incorporate spring and summer pieces into cold weather looks.
So, you just splurged on a new handbag– good for you! The most important part of an investment like a designer handbag is to take care of it so that it lasts for years to come. There are a couple of easy things you can do when storing, using, and cleaning your bag to ensure it stays like new for as long as possible.
If you’ve ever opened your closet full of clothing and said “I have NOTHING to wear!”, you are not alone! The problem usually isn’t about not having enough clothes, but not having the RIGHT pieces in order to pull outfits together. I’ve found that a few staple pieces allow me to pull together stylish outfits for any occasion.
The key is doing the legwork to find pieces that are a great quality and fit your body. That way they will last for years to come, and continue to be the staples you throw on day after day. Keep reading to see my key wardrobe pieces and why they have become my go-to style secrets.
If you think you’re the kind of person who could never be a runner, I’m here to tell you that isn’t true! With a little bit of commitment and the right plan, you can train to run a 5k in a little over a month. I’ve created a week-by-week plan to help you from the start.
This plan only has 4 workouts per week, and most of your workouts will be 30 to 45 minutes long. It starts slow and builds over the course of a month, with the end being a 5k run, that you could also do during a race that you signed up for!
Spring is always really slow to start in Minnesota, so I appreciate when the weather finally is warm enough to start wearing spring outfits. After wearing sweaters and boots for 6 months, its so nice to finally pull out short sleeves and dresses!
One style trend that I have been loving lately is the all white look. It seems like there are endless fashion “rules” about wearing white– but when your outfit is as polished as the looks below, no one will be able to say a thing!
Just be careful with your coffee while wearing these looks.
