friday faves: good things come to those who wait

sometimes when you really want something but you just can’t justify it for full price, it really pays off to wait! that’s honestly one of the reasons i started this blog, because i have this weird quirky talent of finding (almost!) everything for a deal.

except sometimes i follow this other rule, and that is: if you see something, and youย really want it, and you keep thinking about it, and thinking about it, and you reeeeeally want it and you know you’re going to use it a ton, sometimes it’s worth getting even if it’s not on sale! because, sometimes when you’ve waited forever for something you really want, it’s so fun when you finally get it! ONE item in my friday faves today isn’t on sale, but i wanted it all summer and waited forever until i finally splurged. and the splurge was that much sweeter!

The makeup deal is SO cool!


The thing is – is that these products aren’t simply the sale price. Unless your willing to spend $50 to qualify for the minimum purchase order (Land’s End, Sephora, etc), you’ll be paying for shipping too ๐Ÿ™


sorry to disappoint kristen. it takes a ton of time and work to put together these blog posts, and i realize i can’t (and never could possibly!) please everyone every time. i do post free-shipping deals pretty frequently, so if that’s what’s most appealing to you, keep an eye out for those ๐Ÿ˜€


So glad you have that “quirky talent!” I have been enjoying using your blog as a resource for upgrading my wardrobe out of the first-job-out-of-college stage… not to mention keeping the baby shower and birthday gifts within budget this year. Thanks for your work!


Just found this blog and I am in love after reading it for a week!

Christie Sorden:

You have so much talent at what you do! Im in awe at how simple and beautiful you always make it look…I know its not simple at all. I love to check in with you it makes me feel like I have a pulse on whats in-style! I have a teenagers, a toddler, a sick husband. Thanks for keeping me in-style…a little! Btw..would love the make up.I wear whatever is left in the drawer after my daughter takes the good stuff. Need to invest in me more. Have a great week!:)
