Budget Booties!

1 Dec

Happy December everybody:) Hopefully you already have a fabulous pair of winter booties, but don’t fret if your ankles are in need- I have found a well made pair that won’t break the bank. An important thing I look for in booties is obviously STYLE, but comfort is a major factor when I decide on what booties to buy._13339768

These booties are definitely comfortable and cute! They are currently on sale for $84.90 (reg $99.95) at Nordstrom.  Check out the nearly 1500 reviews if you’re undecided.

Blanket Scarf!(Under $25)

11 Nov

If you buy only one scarf this Fall/Winter…..let it be an oversized plaid blanket scarf. The print is bold enough to add a nice pop of color to any outfit without being overbearing. Blanket scarves can be worn in various ways with t-shirts, tucked into coats or over even a dress. They’re cozy and so quintessentially Fall.

Modcloth has the perfect plaid scarf and it comes in different colors. Priced at $24.99, it’s a great way to update your cold weather wardrobe without breaking the bank!

Have a great weekend,

XO- Journey

Your Razor’s New Best Friend!

25 Oct

I have been using, and loving Yorz razor wraps for the last two weeks. In my home, my wife and I use 4 razors at a time(2 each). To avoid mix-ups, we literally have to write our initials on the handle of the razors with a black sharpie marker. I am happy to say that writing our initials on the handle is now a thing of the past. With Yorz razor wraps, we choose our own colors and there is no more confusion.  The soft  silicone wraps come in 7 colors and are super comfortable to hold, which leads me to my next thought. No more nicks!!! I’ve cut myself so many times when the razor has slipped out of my soapy hand in the past. These wraps are so handy, they even have a soft hooked end that can hang on most shower caddies, letting excess water drip off keeping your razor dry and extending the life of the blades. Nobody likes a wet, rusty razor. These are so perfect for households that have people sharing showers- College dorms, roommate situations, families etc. With these wraps, you will never wonder which razor is YORZ again.

Yorz Razor wraps fit any disposable razor with a straight handle and retail for $4.99 each or $11.99 for a 3 pack.

Choked Up!

8 Sep

Chokers are back y’all! Well, they’ve been back for a while, but they’re catching on like wildfire. I’m old enough to remember when chokers were all the rage in the 90’s. They are definitely back with a vengeance~ as are the entire 90’s(good and bad).  Anyways, this past weekend, I received two chokers that I ordered from Forever 21 to wear with a specific outfit. I ordered black to be safe & burgundy hoping it would match the heels I was going to wear. It ended up matching perfectly, so I went with that one. Long story, short, I got so many compliments and messages about the chokers after I shared them on Instagram and Snapchat- especially after I shared the PRICE!!! Both chokers were under $10 total!  So without further ado…… here are links to both chokers. What I love most about these chokers, is that they are dainty and appear to wrap around the neck. I think they are so cute and bring an element of style to a look without overpowering it like a large ribbon type of choker could.

Tassel Tops (Under $20)

I have really been into off the shoulder tops lately and my favorite is a pretty white top with rainbow tassels! It is so cute! I found it on Sheinside.com and there were quite a few other tassel tops on the website as well.  I hadn’t even heard of She Inside until about 2 years ago, but I’m glad I did because it’s kind of like an online forever 21 with tons of very affordable and trendy pieces. Scroll down to shop some of my tassel top faves!!!

If you follow my Instagram, you already know I own rock studs and rock stud lookalikes and am obsessed with them all equally. If you can afford the splurge valentino version, great. If not, the budget friendly Betseyville version is the shoe for you. I’ve had the black ones for a while and love them and just ordered the tan online. Can’t wait to rock them all Summer long.
