Good morning. How are you today? I unexpectedly took a week away from the blog. Between the events in Texas and things happening in our own lives, it just felt right. I have spoken to many of my readers who live in Texas. It’s truly unimaginable. If you are in that area, please know we are pulling for you. I suddenly want to become a plumber overnight so I can quickly fix what is broken in so many homes. The pivot to frivolous posts is never an easy one. Some of you may not be up for Saturday Shopping and that is understandable. Those that are, I’m sharing some inexpensive Spring finds.
Found this blouse on Amazon and I LOVE it. It doesn’t wrinkle, is incredibly soft and falls nicely. Plus it has pleats down the front and smocking detail at the wrists. The feminine details I always look for. This turquoise color is beautiful but it comes in so many other choices. This is a pair of similar booties.
You honestly can’t beat the $22 price. I am wearing a size small and think I may order it in another color.
The blouse also looks cute untucked. The material falls so nicely so it doesn’t appear too boxy. This is a better look at the smocking around the wrists as well as the pleats.
QUILTED CROSSBODY BAG
This inexpensive crossbody bag exceeds my expectations by a long shot. I didn’t know what to expect but it’s darling. It feels substantial and I love the gold detail. The long strap comes folded inside so it has a few kinks but those quickly fall away when you wear it.
This is the “stone” color but there are a ton of options. I love that this handbag is only $20. It absolutely looks more expensive than that in person.
Hello, cute kicks. The best way to describe this color is vanilla. It’s so pretty and soft in person. They are comfortable and run true to size. These are definitely a classic and won’t go out of style.
CUTE SALE FINDS
This cute dress is marked down to $30. I love the smocked waist and cut.
If you like to be snuggly, this hoodie is now 50% off. Great color but it also comes in black.
I have always loved this style for a dining room table. There are three size options and this one is currently on sale.
Another great piece that is on sale. I love the simplicity of this coffee table. It also comes in a square version.
INSTANT PHOTO PRINTER
Do you have one of these printers? They are so much fun. My daughter printed out a bunch for her room and I love that I can choose any photo on my phone and instantly print it. It’s currently on sale and a great gift idea for any upcoming birthdays.
Here are my storage bins in action. I keep telling my husband what a great find these were and I think he is over it. But they hold so much and are incredible sturdy. They fold flat and you can see what is inside. Plus you can access the contents from the side or top. I place them on my shelf backwards just for a cleaner look.
You can save a few dollars on these bins right now. They come in a pack of two.
MAYBE I HAVE A TYPE
I was laughing looking at my closet photo. It’s clear I have a type . . . ivory sweaters. They really are my favorite. I have paired my closet down and this one from Amazon remains a favorite. I also wear this one all the time.
That’s right, girls. You can use the cap! It took me a minute to figure that out. So easy to get in my morning and evening tablespoon. There is no question it’s helping with nail and hair growth but I also notice far less fallout. I used to have to sweep the bathroom all the time. It’s made a huge difference. Wondering if any of you taking the liquid collagen notice the same change. (Using my link will take $10 off if you are a new customer).
*Two tablespoons equates to two bottles a month.
Need help managing stress? Equilibria has helped me so much. Not only do I sleep better but I handle the stressors of life in a much calmer manner. If you don’t know where to start, I always recommend the Balance Box. I have an extensive Q & A post that may be help, too.
