Thrifty Thursday Week 5-Tangerine Dream

31 Mar

Thrifty Thursday Week 5: Tangerine Dream

It’s week 5 of Thrifty Thursday and this week I was searching for color! Oh, glorious Orange, such a great color. Orange makes you feel like you have a tan, even when you don’t and the big floppy hat  is a trendy hit this season. I put these two items together and presto, a tangerine dream!

This week I spent $14.50, not too shabby!

Thrifted Ann Taylor sundress $8

Wide brim floppy hat (Forever 21) $6.50

It’s all about the color ladies, be Bold and Beautiful:)



S’mores and Swimsuits

21 Mar

Waking up to s’mores sounds pretty good to me! Yay, for Breakfast on the go s’mores,  which I found yesterday at the store.

These things are darn delicious! They are a little higher in calories than I would normally like for breakfast weighing in at 200 calories and 10 grams of fat for the pack,  but on the plus side these things are super filling.

Sweet and easy…how can you go wrong!

Also, I just found the answer to my swimsuit prayers. The “monokini” covers me up in just the right places. I hate my front, but love my back and this suit I got from Forever 21 is the bomb!!!

The only dilemma here is that I may not be able to wear this suit if I eat too many of these tasty s’mores:)

Oh well…C’est La Vie!

Plato Has a Groovy Closet!

24 Feb

Ah…some things never change:) When I was a little girl, my brother and I used to gather up unwanted treasures from our rooms and meet up at the secret spot, otherwise known as the living room, for a good barter. This is what my brother and I referred to as “Merchan for Merchan”; which loosely translated is – your merchandise for mine.

Well, today I still play Merchan for Merchan, but I do it with Plato’s Closet. A cool little place where you can trade your used clothing for new and used clothing. They sell gently used brand name stuff, so it’s like having all the major stores in a mall, at one location and at cheaper prices.

I’m the type of person who gets very bored with wearing the same thing more than a few times. I like to mix it up. So this barter and trade system really works for me and you can get more for your money! I am all about quantity!

So here’s the cute summer Merchan I got today!

I got a super fly brown Fedora hat too!

It was a successful trade and a very good Plato Haul!
