Thank goodness it’s a Friday! I don’t care how old I get, I still look forward to Friday. It’s the end of most work and school weeks. It’s the culmination of five days of hard work so a celebration is required, hence why Friday “Happy Hour” is so popular. Since I love happy hour, Friday’s, and shopping I decided to introduce “Friday Favorites. ” It’s a list of a few of my favorite things and this week, I’m talking my five current must haves from Mac Cosmetics.
I’m a frugal fashionista. I love deals, discounts, sales, and any other way I can possibly save a coin. Simply put I like to style for the low and that’s why this fashion-forward frugal shopper LIVES for retailers like Target. I would literally visit two to three Target stores a week in Rochester. Every now and then I would pick up household goods, but I was truly there for the bomb pieces in the women’s department. Seriously, at one point my work wardrobe was strictly Target originals. Of those two years going rack to rack, I’ve never noticed the brand “Fashion Union.” It wasn’t until moving back to Bama that I discovered this hip and very affordable brand. OMG people! I. Love. It. And of course I had to add a few pieces to my cart. Here’s what I picked up. Continue Reading »
There are a few things that instantly make me smile. Sequins and polka dots are at the top of that list. Who doesn’t love a little sparkle? Plus, polka dots scream girly-girl. I remember one summer I had a crazy romance with the print. Literally every week I was dressed in some variation of polka dots. Recently, I was able to pair two of my favorite things together and the results were amazing.

I’ve become sort of amazing at scouting sales. It’s happening so much, I swear I’m a pro. It’s been a big win for my wallet, but it’s also made me kind of a snob. I now refuse to pay retail. I always say, ” I’ll wait until it’s marked down.” I need to be in love, like I can’t live without it, and I will dream about it every night type of love in order to pay full price. That rarely happens, but when it does, I grab it and head straight to checkout. Often times than not I’m always catching a sale and it’s afforded me some fabulous looks including this one.

I’m a 30 something woman and I’m still struggling with what to wear. It’s the same problem I was faced with throughout high school. Seriously, what should I wear is the question of my life. Here’s what I take into consideration: weather, comfort, and style. I hate to wear my favorite summer dress on a wet and gloomy day. I want to be comfortable, while maintaining my personal style. But nine times out of 10, style always trumps comfort.
I keep all of this in mind, plus a few factors when selecting my work wardrobe. As an on-air journalist, I’m mindful of how my look will work for television. Sometimes certain prints can be too busy. I also wear fitted pieces to show off my figure, because TV really adds 10 pounds.
