Cheap Color Blocking Options

If you didn't know any better you would think its almost summer.  This is good and bad news for me.  Since I tend to wear a lot of black the warm weather means its time to find more colors.  I found a few simple inexpensive options to brighten even this funeral directors wardrobe.

I'm a fan of home fashion but....

Who in their right mind would pay $1,200 for this...

or $3,200 for this

color me crazy but aren't these the things you find at the beach and try to avoid??

Thank you Lonny Magazine for giving me a potential retirement plan. 

(mom if you're reading this we need to plan a beach trip ASAP)

Let There Be Lucite

And she does it again....mom made a huge score on craigslist.  Lucite chairs, stools, and tables are all over the blog world but any source you find them on charges an arm, leg, and first born.

Amazingly she found these bad boys...

but not at THIS price.

Take a look at the two new additions to my family

proud mama.

Hair Product Rave

So if you are like me and your hair is fried, dyed, and swooped to the side then this is the product for you.  

Its the lighter version for blonde hair and all you need is a small amount... which means it lasts forever.  I put it in my hair after the shower, let it air dry a little, then blow it out.  Its amazing how different your hair feels and makes it look so much healthier.  Do yourself a favor and pick this up, you won't be disappointed.

After endless months of searching, my mom found two AH-mazing bar carts for me!  The first one is not exactly what I had in mind but for $5.00 her and I couldn't pass it up!

Once we give this bad boy a makeover I envision this....

looking something like this

or this

we have decided to sell it in her antique booth since is wasn't exactly what I was looking for.

Thankfully she still kept an eye out and a week later found this guy!

after a coat of paint or two I'm hoping it turns out like this.

I have no room to put the above mentioned but thank the lawd for craigslist (and my mom)!!

I interrupt the scheduled DIYing....

...to bring you the deal of the day.  I decided to stop at Macy's on my lunch break today and honestly the last thing I thought I would find was this..

I have been looking for the perfect leopard jacket for a while now.  They were having a one day sale but the deal was even better than what the price tag said.

I ended up getting this bad boy for....wait for it....$39.99!! Thats a $100.00 discount.  Today was definitely my day.

And Finn approves.
