Thanksgiving pictures and savings!!
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
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!
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!!
Here are some fashion & beauty pics inspired by fall…..
I just purchased this beautiful coat from Forever21…I paid full price ($60) because I know it won’t last until a sale…it’s too pretty and they only had one left in the store in my size! Can’t wait to wear it!!
These are my favorite fall scarves…the first two a purchased from Charming Charlie and the 3rd I made my self. See DIY blanket scarf post here.
Some of my favorite fall nail polish colors! I’ve collected these colors over the years..the brands range from Marc Jacobs to Ulta.
Some makeup lip colors I’ve been loving…the especially love the Milani cosmetics metallic lipsticks.
More makeup I’ve been loving for fall
This is a turquoise handbag I purchased on sale from Charming Charlie and I added a fall colored scarf for a dressier touch.
Kate Spade tote with my plaid scarf
Scarves 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.
