Old Navy Canvas Tote Giveaway

I just love these little bags to throw on my shoulder when heading to scour the thrift stores or yard sales. They were such a good price; I thought why not buy 3 of them so that I can give them away!

Yard Sale Chair Makeover

Patio Chair Makeover - Yard Sale I found this awesome set of patio chairs at a yard sale for $16! Me, being the budget – fashionista that I am, thought $16 was a bit much. I was thinking more along the lines of $10. Believe it or not, I’m not much of a haggler. I have probably walked away from some pretty good finds because I didn’t want to offer the seller less money. I guess it has to do with the fact that I’ve had yard sales in the past, and when people try to low-ball me, I get really annoyed. FAST! After consulting with my better half about these chairs, I was assured that I was getting a great price. So I got them. They didn’t need much work at all. I wiped them down, gave them a few coats of black spray paint, and they were all done! I’m so happy I didn’t walk away this time. They are some of the most comfortable patio chairs I’ve ever sat in. I hope to have a patio reveal within a few weeks. It has truly come a long way!

Talk to you later,

Come Yard Sale with Me!

So, I finally uploaded another YouTube video after 2 years! LOL! A lot of you ask me about thrifting, yard sales, and Craigslist so I thought I’d make a “follow me around” type of video. I’m not the best video editor in the world, but I gave it a shot. The more videos I make, the better they will start to become. Let me know if you like these types of videos, and I’ll make more in the future. Also, let me know what you’d like for me to do differently. I definitely want your feedback! Thank you all for watching and enjoy your day!


Thrift Store Brass Lamp Makeover

Thrift Store Brass Lamp Makeover
Today I have another thrift store makeover for you guys. Again, an easy one! I love knocking these “quickies” off my project list. Here are the $4 brass lamps I started with. Very old and dingy. I always start by using a damp rag, along with warm water and vinegar to clean each piece. If I wasn’t using spray paint, and I wanted to keep the lamps brass, I would have just shined them up with Barkeeper’s Friend. In this case, I definitely wanted to spray paint.Continue Reading

Bamboo Mirror Makeover

Bamboo Mirror Before & After I have a really quick makeover for you guys. As you already know I love me some Craigslist, thrift stores, and yard sales. Let’s face it, I ain’t paying full price for nothing!  Now the downside of me shopping at those places is that the pieces normally require some type of TLC. I have sooooo many projects that I need to get to. This one, however, was reallyContinue Reading

Casual Sunday

Hey Loves! Dropping by very quickly before I head in to work. Hope you all have been doing well. Me on the other hand, I’ve been okay. Life could be a whole lot better for me. But I digress…….
Anyhoo, I’m LOVING these yarn wraps that the Sweety helped me with. It took us a few days but we got them done. I have been wanting some type of protective style so that my hair will grow & I wouldn’t keep manipulating it. I previously had Continue Reading

Birthday Talk

Good Morning! Its Monday….again. I think the weekends are only meant to tease us cause they just roll by too fast. I’m not complaining this Monday though, because its only 2 days before my birthday! I have no idea why I’m super excited about my birthday this year. I have no plans to go anywhere. I really don’t have anything to do. I was going to go to Vegas, but changed my mind. This is a special bithday for me because I’m turning the big 35. I was so scared to turn 30, now I’m turning Continue Reading

Florals and Fur


It’s Thursday, Valentine’s Day!!!!! I want to wish you all a very Happy Heart Day! Even if you don’t have a significant other, you should still make the best of it. Buy yourself something…… HUMPH! I know I would!

Anyway, as I was editing these pics, I was wondering why on earth I never wore this blazer. It is just too darn cute! It’s a great cut & the pattern is amazing. I have entirely too many blazers that Continue Reading

These Boots Weren’t Made for Walking

2012-12-30 003 070 Let me tell you what I hate. I hate when  you buy a pair of over the knee boots & they fit perfectly in the store. Well, when you decide to wear them, they still look good on you. As the day progresses, you notice that you have to keep pulling & tugging on them to keep them up.  At this point, you’re really really frustrated because they didn’t Continue Reading
