How to Properly Store Your Perfume

I love perfume. The scents transform you. They can take you all the way from a floral garden to a sexy night out with your lover. I love how the notes change as time goes by. One minute you’ll be wrapped up in top notes and as the fragrance dries down you’ll get hints of the middle and base notes.  Perfumes can be expensive depending on the size and the brand, however if stored properly you can protect your investment. I learned this the hard way. Believe it or not, perfumes can go bad. Above is a picture of two of… View Post

Broke on Purpose: October 2015

I’m a little late posting this, but I definitely had to share because last month my husband and I hit a milestone within our debt payoff journey.  This would be a lot more exciting if we were saving up the money instead of paying off debt, but we’ve finally hit the $20K mark. Actually, we’re over the $20K mark as since we started Broke on Purpose 8 months ago we’ve paid off a whopping $22, 192! That’s right that’s $22K worth of debt gone! It’s so refreshing to have that weight of debt off our backs. When I wake up… View Post

The Changing of the Guard- Clothes Edition

This post was sponsored by SocialStar. I also love using Tide Pods so all opinions on them are my own. #TideThat Now that we’ve had a couple of back to back days where the weather has required me to leave the house with a jacket I think it’s time to make the switcheroo and pull out my cold weather clothes and put away all my summer fashions. I like to call it the changing of the guard as I do the same thing with my handbags as I’m putting away the brighter colors like the Neon Kate Spade for fall… View Post

Why I’m No Longer Afraid of the Colder Months.

I wrote this as part of a sponsored post for Social Stars. Curél® Itch Defense® #curelskincare If there is one thing I live for it’s the little bit of me time that I get alone, just having an at home spa day. I love soaking in a hot tub with the smell of different oils and fragrances permeating around me and in infusing into my skin. I love the way my skin smells and feels afterward. The problem is I can’t have a spa day every day and usually after I get out the shower I’m running to find the nearest… View Post

What’s inside the RedBook Beauty Box

I recieved this BeautyBox for review. All opions are my own. Many of you know that I usually give beauty boxes the side eye. I mean I try to like them I really do, but most of the time they’re just a bunch of small samples that you can pick up at the dollar store or in the travel section of Target. I completely understand that Beauty Box’s are supposed to introduce you to new and upcoming brands and allow you to test out the products without the commitment of buying the full size, but after so many boxes of… View Post
