Budget Friendly Shopping Ideas

Uncategorized April 13, 2018

Hello, my dears!

We have all been there when the budget we have is low, and we are bored but want to shop. I have been there quite a few times and I thought I’d share a few things you could do when your budget doesn’t allow some of the other plans you hoped for.

  1. Thrift Shop. So, some people have reservations about thrifting but I believe it can be one of the most fun and economically friendly past times. There’s plenty of items you can purchase at the thrift store besides clothes. I like to look at the vintage teacups or even the paper supplies. There’s plenty of clothes or items for your home like furniture or decorations. Basically, you can go here and spend less than twenty dollars and go home happy so it’s definitely a budget-friendly option.
  2. Second Hand Book Store. This is similar to the thrift shopping but there are gobs and gobs of books! I love to learn and read but sometimes books can get expensive so I love going to second-hand bookstores and spending a long time looking for something that will keep me entertained for hours.
  3. Dollar Tree. Honestly, the dollar tree is great for anyone who wants to do art projects or decorate their home for the season. You can get anything from candles to mirrors, to decorative ornaments. They have a pretty well-stocked paper supply section and always have tons of stickers! Also, their candy aisle is always a treat!
  4. Tj-Maxx. Tj-Maxx has recently become one of my favorite stores, especially for skin care items. They have a wonderful selection of high-end products which you can pay a fraction of the price for. They also have clothes, home goods, even tea, and snacks!

I thought it would be fun to write this post because I know I am always looking for a deal or to pay less for quality items. If you have any other ideas for budget-friendly shopping leave them in a comment below! ❤

 

 

 

 

Current Favorites: Spring 2018

Uncategorized April 7, 2018

Hello lovely,

I’m sorry I’ve been gone so long but I am back in full force starting now. I have a lot of new ideas for posts and I hope you can all forgive my absence. So, I thought I’d do a round up of my favorites that I’ve been loving over the last few months since I’ve been gone and I hope you enjoy!

I’ve certainly been loving the Wet and Wild Liquid Lipsticks, the Catsuit formula. I love the color selection and the fact that they do not budge in any way once they are dried down. I also love the price and the fact that they are constantly releasing new shades as well as the fact that they are cruelty-free. My current favorite shade is called “Oh My Dolly”, which is a vibrant hot pink color perfect for the warmer weather.

I have been loving the new Love, Beauty, And Planet Tea Tree shampoo and conditioner. This stuff smells so refreshing and feels like it is actually cleaning my hair unlike many products on the market. It is also a cruelty-free brand and I believe it is also vegan. The quality of the product for the price is also a plus!

I’ve been focusing on doing yoga much more in the last few months. I believe it has really changed the way I operate when stressed and it has a magical sense of relaxation and inner harmony which makes me continue to practice it. I encourage anyone dealing with mental health issues to pursue a trial of yoga at the very least.

Another mental health favorite is a pill organizer. I simply picked up a day and night daily organizer from Walgreens and it has helped me with keeping on track with taking medication. I like that if I forget a dose of medication I can track what I missed. This is a simple act of self-care.

Planning! Obviously, I couldn’t live without a planner. I love to write every solitary task down and check it off at the end of the day for a sense of accomplishment. I was gifted the Law of Attraction planner for Christmas and it has been a wonderful addition to my planning routine. I recommend this planner to anyone who truly wants to change the way they live and their habits and routines.

Well, these are my current favorites and I hope you enjoyed hearing from me after being so scarce the last several months. ❤

Until Next,

Julie
