Thrifted Work Outfits

Thrifted Work Outfits

My love for thrifted fashion continues to grow! I discovered my love for thrifting in 2017 and ever since then, I can’t seem to stop myself. I have found a few of my favorite staple pieces from thrift stores for less than $20, which I am sharing on this blog post today!

I’m all about mixing affordable fashion with luxury accents, especially when it comes to work fashion. We all know that work style pieces like blazers can get pretty pricey. As a graduate student on a fashion budget, thrift stores are my go to place for blazers. Blazers are such an iconic part of a work uniform, it helps add structure and sometimes is the stand out piece that pulls the entire look together.

Another work outfit piece I love to thrift are turtle-neck sweaters. Thrift stores are filled with this classic piece and they are seriously the perfect winter work top! I thrifted two turtle-neck sweaters (black and white), as styled below. These sweaters were less than $5 each AND they give the work outfit a chic look while appropriate for the winter season. Let’s be honest, sometimes button-ups can’t fight against the cold weather.

5 Ways to Pamper Yourself!

5 Ways to Pamper Yourself!
Hello Loves!

This year is the year of self-care! What is self-care without a few pampering activities, right? I’m sharing 5 ways I pamper myself, which I love to do at least once a week 🙂

1.Netflix and Chill with Food! I’m such a homebody and foodie. I love to sit on my couch and have a movie marathon with my favorite foods. It is such a great time 🙂 Here is a list of my favorite fashion/chick flick movies to binge watch.

2. Face Mask and Wine Up! What is more relaxing than a soothing face mask and your favorite bottle of wine? Nothing I tell you! In a way it’s the perfect way to relax from the outside in.

3. Splurge on a Manicure! I love getting pamper at a salon, especially if it means leaving the salon with the cutest nails. This blog post is in collaboration with PLee Beauty, which is a beauty salon located in Wausau, WI. PLee Beauty does everything from manicures to eye lash extensions. She is such a pro and what I love about PLee Beauty is that not only is she crazy talented with her nail art, but also her customer service is so amazing. I met her for the first time a few weeks ago and after the appointment, I truly felt like we developed a mini friendship. I don’t know about you ladies, but I’m not all about just the service, but also who is providing me the service as well. If you are in the Wausau area, I highly recommend PLee Beauty for your next manicure appointment.

4. Write A ‘Life is Good’ List to remind yourself what is good in your life. This is such a great idea to compile all the good things in your life. I love all the positive vibes you get from the list.

5. SHOPPING! Retail therapy is so real and personally it has proven to be such a great way to release stress and splurge on yourself 🙂

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed this blog post!

New Treats Perfect for a Movie Night

If I’m being honest, I’m a huge homebody where I love ending the night in my bed, snuggling to Netflix and a new treat! I am so excited to be trying 2 of the 3 new Creamy SNICKERS® flavors, which are new at Walmart. Of course, I had to try the Almond Butter and Maple Almond Butter flavors because I’ve been obsessed with Almond Butter lately. The treat is very smooth and creamy! It’s the perfect amount of rich milk chocolate paired with caramel and 3 available creamy options: Almond Butter, Peanut Butter, or Maple Almond Butter.

You can buy the Creamy SNICKERS® at your local Walmart store in the candy aisle or on the Walmart page. These goodies sold out fast at my local Walmart store, so I definitely recommend getting them ASAP before there is none left!

When I’m having a movie night, a treat is a must have to keep my hangry level at an all time low. I love the fun-size, they are the perfect amount to enjoy without the sugar rush! Also please note that the new Creamy SNICKERS® do not include the classic SNICKERS® nougat nor does it have whole peanuts, which makes these new treats all the better!

The next time you are having a movie night, definitely grab 1, 2 or even 3 of these new Creamy SNICKERS® square bars to enjoy! Comment down below your favorite flavor!
