Thanksgiving 2016

Thanksgiving pictures and savings!!

018B-1 Thanksgiving 018C Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving outfit details: Blazer is from Forever21, Dress is from Charming Charlie and Boots are newly purchased from Charlotte Russe.

Nails I painted myself with Sally Hansen miracle gel polish in the color Creme de la Creme and glued on nail jewels I had purchased on Amazon.

My cousin and I designed a bar sign with the drinks we would be serving. The sign is a black poster board and we used white marker to draw on. I then designed the drink pictures using Picmonkey.com. She added velcro to the back of the drink pictures so we could remove them next time we use the sign and switch to different pictures.

The three drinks we served were Dark n Stormy, Caramel Apple Martini and Pumpkin Martini

018D Thanksgiving

After I purchased the alcohol I checked out BevRage and ibotta cash back apps and saved $6 total because there were rebates on the Vodka and Rum I used!! All I had to do is sign into the apps and upload my receipt!

018E Thanksgiving

Holidays are a big time for the purchase of alcohol. Not only are drinks usually served at Holiday parties but they are also given as gifts. Make sure to check out these apps over the holiday seasons to save on liquor, wine and beer purchases!!

Fall in Love with Fall

Here are some fashion & beauty pics inspired by fall…..

DIY Blanket Scarf

blanket scarf DIYScarves are by far one of my favorite accessories especially in fall, but they can be pricey…some going for over $30 apiece.

I’ve been seeing really pretty pictures on Pinterest of blankets scarves but there was a certain plaid pattern I was searching. As luck with have it, on a trip to Jo-anne fabric one afternoon I saw the pattern I wanted! They had quite a selection of plaid fabrics. I love the green with red and blue.

I waited a few weeks for the plaid fabrics to be marked down 40% and then I used a 20% off your purchase coupon.

Regular price the fabric was $9.99 per yard. I purchased roughly 1 1/3 yards. So it would have cost about $13. With the 40% off I got the fabric for $5.99/yard and an additional 20% or $1.50 of so my final price was roughly $6.20 before taxes.

The 1 1/3 yards makes the fabric square in shape, so I basically just fold it up how I like and there is my blanket scarf. No sewing required.

A $6 blanket scarf!

If you personally would like to add fringe edges there is a how to tutorial here from jo-ann’s website.

Fall Nails

I love having painted nails but don’t want to pay nail salon prices for them. So I paint my nails each week in the comfort of my own home. This saves me time and money, plus I can switch up the color whenever I want and don’t have to schedule an appointment or take the time to drop into a nail salon.
