are you taking the chance to fail at something you love or living idle out of fear for practicality?
Have you ever stopped to think, really think, about what you are doing right here, right now, in the moment? And if you've ever taken a moment to stop and think about what it is you are doing, do you find yourself filled with...

Some advice on target shopping.
We all love bargains, right? I've talked about this in terms of thrifting, but Target can be the queen bee too. Finding that little red sticker that says now: $5.98, was: $29.99 just makes you want to run around the store and...

Thoughts on Giving and Receiving Thrifted Gifts.
Something I realize is that although I love thrift stores, and finding treasures, not everyone does. So I often find myself asking the question, with no truly unbiased answer: Is it appropriate to give a gift that has been purchased second hand?  Of course,...

swimsuits for under $20, yes please :)

Home and Dutch Apple Pie
I used to be that girl, at 8 year old slumber parties, who would miss her mom and want to go home in the middle of the night. Miss home and want to skip out on feeling uncomfortable in an unknown place. Sometimes I would get to go home. My mom, or dad, woul...
