Hello and welcome back! I hope your January has been off to a great start! Mine has been super busy. Lots of crazy things coming up this year and I can’t wait to share more.
Do you ever get bored with certain pieces in your closet and wish they had a little something extra? I do! Instead of running out and buying new pieces all the time, I like to survey my closet for pieces that have potential or make a trip to goodwill and find the diamonds in the rough.
Today I want to show you how you can easily up-cycle thrift store finds or older pieces in your closet. I love giving my clothes a new lease on life and saving some money!

Hello and welcome back! Only one more week until Thanksgiving. Can you believe it? I know I can’t. We are going out of town to visit family for Thanksgiving this year, so we did all of our Christmas decorating early so that when we come home we can relax and enjoy the decorations.
I found our Christmas tree a few years ago at Walmart for only $40. It’s 6.5 feet tall and pre-lit. It’s a pretty basic looking tree. For what we paid for it, we have absolutely gotten our money’s worth. Last year, I found myself ogling other people’s flocked Christmas trees online. The fake snow is stunning with the lights. So this year I decided I wanted a tree upgrade, until I actually started looking online at flocked trees. They are so expensive!! I can certainly attest they are beautiful, but I’m not about to shell out $300 on a tree. Imagine all the gifts you can get people with that money! Naturally, we decided to DIY it. The best part is that we only spent $15 on the supplies!

Hello and welcome back! I love Thanksgiving, but Christmas is the holiday I go all out for when it comes to decorations. This year I was looking for a simple, inexpensive centerpiece that still looked pretty. Of course, I love to browse my local Dollar Tree and see what I can make. All of the pieces I used to make my Thanksgiving centerpiece this year are from Dollar Tree and I actually already had everything here at home, so I didn’t spend a thing!

Hello and welcome back! Happy Friday, my friends. I am so glad the weekend is here. Who else is going to be binge watching the new season of Stranger Things this weekend? (In between all of the Halloween festivities, of course)
Today I’m back with another last minute Halloween costume idea: a Snapchat Filter!
Have you ever thought you weren’t going to do anything for Halloween and then last minute your friends ask you to go out and do something that sounds really fun? That’s actually happened to me for two years in a row. Ha! If that sounds like you and you didn’t have a great costume planned out, don’t fret, I’ve got your back. This costume is so cute, and I had everything at home already to make it, so I didn’t spend a penny.

Hello and welcome back! The weather is finally starting to get nice here in Florida. (Yay!)
Halloween is just around the corner, so today I’m back with another Halloween costume DIY. I’ve been trying to think of cute couples costume ideas that aren’t too overdone and are also super budget friendly. Instead of buying all new stuff, we looked around the house at what we already had to see what we could make. We decided to be a cop and a donut! These costumes are so easy and budget friendly.

Hello and welcome back! I hope you are having a fabulous fall thus far. It still feels like summer here in Florida, but I’m not letting that discourage me from participating in all the fall things. I’m back today with another DIY Fall Wreath. There is something about burlap that screams fall to me.
I’ve seen so many of these bubble wreaths out there and decided to give it a shot. This one is so silly easy and affordable that I just may be making more and giving them away as gifts in the very near future!

Hello and welcome back! It’s here, it’s here! Well, almost. Tomorrow is the first official day of fall! Who else is as excited as I am? I think I heard some screams of excitement out there somewhere. My fall decorating is in full swing over here. Despite the fact it is currently 90 degrees outside, I have a pumpkin spice candle here burning strong. To kick off my absolute favorite season, I wanted to share a super easy fall DIY!

I was in Dollar Tree the other day and I was shocked at their big selection of picture frames. I immediately started to think of all the endless possibilities of cool things I could do with these inexpensive picture frames. I’ve seen so many projects on Pinterest lately that I decided to grab a few myself so I could make a box to store my sunglasses. Continue reading “Dollar Store DIY Sunglasses Box”
Oh hello, August! I didn’t see you there. Is it back to school season already? I love school supplies. There. I said it. I also love Kate Spade. (But you already knew that, didn’t you?) Kate Spade is one of my all-time favorite brands. They really know how to make ordinary objects look fancy, but fortunately, so do I!
