discount beauty products on a budget

My first how to is dedicated to those who has a passion or inclination towards buying beauty products.  I have a few tips and tricks I would like to share to further help us all release our inner beauty and creativity without breaking the bank.  I hope you enjoy reading this how to about finding beauty products on a budget and let me know other tips I may have missed!

Part I – Finding Products

Being a Makeup Enthusiast, Makeup Collector, or Makeup Artist may seem like it takes a lot of money to do properly. This does not have to be the case. Everyone starts somewhere and if you don’t have the newest, fanciest, most high-end products on the market do not be discouraged.

I’ve compiled a list of resources to help you get started on your beauty journey. Products are a must, but spending thousands of dollars on them is not. If you haven’t learned anything about me yet, do know I LOVE a good bargain. Let’s get to the list now, shall we? View Post

Erin Condren Planner

A few weeks ago, I was creeping around Tumblr and Youtube trying to decide what planner I should get for 2016, since, this is going to be a busy year.  Normally, I just head to Dillard’s and buy Lilly Pulitzer planners but this year I just wasn’t as sold on them as usual.  Then, suddenly, I stumbled across the mecca of Erin Condren Life Planner “Plan With Me” videos and the numerous Etsy shops that sold accessories and stickers specifically for the Erin Condren planners.

SO, OF COURSE, I ORDERED ONE. Why would I turn down an excuse to buy more craft supplies under the guise of being organized?

A week and a half after ordering the planner, it finally arrived at my doorstep!
