My 3 “Go-To” items, before I leave the house!

So I’m sure you all have those few key things you have to put on everyday before you step out into the world and show your beautiful faces.  For me it is my concealer, Mascara, and my perfume.  The reasoning behind these 3 items is simple, lets start with the concealer.  I like to think of this as 8 hours of sleep in a stick!   Even if you didn’t catch as many Z’s as you would have like the night before you can still look alive and well!  Concealer is great for hiding those dark circles under your eyes, but make sure to keep it away from the outer corners of your eyes.  The reason being, it is the place most of us have fine lines and wrinkles and the concealer can highlight that , and no one wants that!  Now onto Mascara!  I think even if a pinch, Mascara does so much to your over all look, that it’s worth the 30 seconds to put it on.  My personal favorite right now is Maybelline Great Lash-Big Mascara, the brush is large and helps get all those little lashes.  And last but certainly not least is my perfume, and right now I am in love with True Religion!  It is an instant pick me up and just makes me feel happy and calm.  I’m sure all of you out there have your go-to items every morning and I’d love to hear about them!

I absolutely love these sandals!! The wedge heel is super cute for this spring and summer! Also if you don’t normally wear heels but you’d like to start, a wedge is the way to go. It will give you more support if your going to be on your feet a lot during the day.

Spring cleaning your wardrobe…

So I don’t know about you but I like to refresh my wardrobe as the seasons change. This subsequently costs money, money that a lot of us (including myself) don’t have just lying around right now. So my solution this spring was to go through and find the things I no longer wear but are still in good condition. Then I snapped some pictures and posted them on craigslist or took them to my local consignment shop and sold them. I know this is not a new concept but I always seem to forget about this.

Last week I sold a pair of shoes and two shirts!! I was so thrilled with my success I wanted to go shopping right away, but I forced myself to go through my clothes first and see what I truly needed. I also decided to check out the thrift stores before hitting the mall and my other favorite stores. I found a great pair of BKE jeans and an adorable knee-length, lightweight, white tunic shirt from Gap. Total price for both items $8.78!!! With my remaining money I was able to buy a killer white blazer from one of my favorite stores, Target!

Obviously a pair of jeans, a shirt and a blazer aren’t going to be all I need to perfectly outfit myself for spring and summer. But I am determined to do so by being inventive and resourceful with not only my money but the pieces I already own!! Till next time keep your eyes open for thrifty fashion finds and new ways to stretch your wardrobe budget!!
