Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget: How to Maximize Your Budget


budget shopping fashion on a budget bargain hunting

I am a HUGE bargain shopper, but that doesn’t mean I only shop at Forever 21 and thrift stores (I wish I had the patience/attention span for thrifting!). I don’t comb through pages on eBay or Poshmark. I am a sale junkie and I do almost all of my shopping online. I also buy mostly designer(ish!) clothing.

If you’re on a beer budget, but like me, you have champagne taste keep reading!

Bauble Bar Sale: 9 items your jewelry box needs, under $50

Bauble Bar Sale

All of my friends know that I am one of the most annoying people to go to the mall with most of the time (unless it’s for Black Friday sales!). I have an incredibly hard (read: impossible) time paying full price for anything and I almost also refuse to buy anything unless it’s on sale.

I’m a hardcore bargain hunter. With everything from travel to clothes to even makeup! I hunt far and wide for the best deals. My motto is: the more I save, the more I can buy! 😉

Right now, I’m sure just about all of y’all are shopping the Nordstrom Sale. It’s one of my favorites of the year, but a close second is when Bauble Bar does their huge markdowns. If you haven’t discovered Bauble Bar yet, it’s time to! They have high quality jewelry, but at affordable prices.

Here’s a round-up of my favorites with links to purchase them!

Just do it

Health fitness exercise workout running

Since college, healthy living has been hard. Like real. real. real. hard y’all! I definitely wouldn’t have associated college with the healthiest time of my life if you had asked me even during college. Between walking a few miles everyday to class, not having enough money to eat Chipotle everyday and the incredibly large, free gym 5 minutes from my apartment it was almost EASY to be healthy.

Lately I’ve been doing my worst at being healthy. I am definitely starting to feel it. I used to workout several times a week, training for a marathon and keeping my fitness up in the off season (AKA when it’s 110 outside here in Texas).

Of course every fitness plan needs cute new gear (totally necessary), here are some of my favorites and how I’m getting back to tip-top shape.

How to make healthy tacos

I mean really, is there a more perfect food?

So anyone that knows me knows, that I have one true love: Tex Mex. To save money, I’ve been eating in a LOT lately. Prior to the move I had been eating out every day for lunch and I just simply did not cook.

Also being back home is a little boring, my parents live pretty much out in the sticks so there’s not a whole lot else to do unless I’m up for a fairly long drive. It’s weird to go from eating out almost every. single. meal. to cooking every single meal.

Recently I’ve become obsessed with tacos. They’re so easy, so versatile and Continue reading

Another week, another road trip: Florida to Texas

FloraBamaBeach Florida Pensacola

Of course I picked the day storms were all over the southeast to make the drive to Texas. I left around 6:30 AM and didn’t get into to Fort Worth until 8:30 PM. It was an incredibly long day.

The last 200 miles of any long road trip is always the worst. You’re tired, probably hungry and you want to stop for a break, but you’re not really all that far away. Now add in rain, and absolutely nothing for miles and that was about 50% of my drive.

My favorite part of a road trip is the unplanned, spontaneous trips to sight see or to for a certain type of food.
