Hello and Happy Tuesday! Today I am coming to you with a few ways to treat yourself on the cheap! I am a new mom on a budget, and have found a few things that are too good to pass up:
Melanie Shankle’s new book came out today and IT IS SO GOOD. I was lucky enough to be part of the launch team and to say this showed up on my door step at a key time is an understatement. It’s all about making the most of life through the small moments (which usually turn out to be the big ones). It’s cute, funny and easy to read with her southern accent in mind (if you listen to The Big Boo Cast). Do yourself a favor and pick one up.
I am loving a touch of camo for fall, and this cute vest is less than $20 with the code FAMILY (today is the last day). Combined with a white t, some distressed jeans and these cute booties, and you are all set for casual Friday.
I have a talent for killing plants. It’s a rare gift I didn’t discover until marriage, but let me tell you, I am killing it. We had these sweet window boxes under the front windows of our old home. I would plant flowers and COMPLETELY forget they were there. Translation: no watering and no love. Succulents are such a good way to add a little life and freshness to your home with very little maintenance. This little aloe plant from CB2 is adorable and only $6!
This one is another thing I learned about via Melanie Shankle. They talked about Too Faced mascara on the Big Boo Cast with Brittany from Last Chance U (which is a WHOLE other topic if you have not watched that Netflix documentary) and a trip to walk the mall with Taylor one day led to a purchase. I LOVE IT. If you don’t want to commit, there is a $12 travel size option. For a red head with somewhat invisible features, this is a dream.
As a new working mom, my face has taken on a definitive tired look. I’m a little late to the mask party, but I love Sephora’s brand. They have a bunch of choices at a price that won’t kill your wallet. This eye mask is next on my list.
I love a fun cheap find. What are your favorites?
