8 Tips to SAVE you $$$ When Shopping for Wedding Guest Attire

8 tips to save money shopping for wedding attire

How many weddings did you say you were attending this year? Whether its one or six, we need to save as much money as we can. Am I right? The cost of a wedding can be expensive and we can recall from How to Budget when you get the NEXT Wedding Invitation. #WeddingWednesday, how the cost isn’t just in the gift. Travel costs, bachelor parties, and showers/stags are automatic additions to any wedding invitation that comes in the mail. What can put a damper on any budget is the cost to dress for the events and the happy couple’s special day. Continue reading 8 Tips to SAVE you $$$ When Shopping for Wedding Guest Attire

Disclosure for Warby Parker Ocean Aveunue Collection

What is so special about Warby Parker eyewear? Here’s FOUR reasons to check them out!

  1. They’re affordable! I’ve been wearing eyeglasses since 1987. They were round shaped brown frames and my lenses stuck way out because they were thick. I absolutely hated them. Talk about looking like a nerd, and NOT the cool nerd of today! Continue reading Look good and feel good about it too with @WarbyParker #eyeglasses #shop

This past April I challenged all My Pocketful of Thoughts’ readers to shine light on their beauty. Men and women alike can get caught up in life and all that it entails. We get super busy and things that were once a priority change up. We also get into routines that are reshaped over and over again to get out every single possible minute of the day doing something. Do you ever find yourself running around without giving your appearance a second thought? Continue reading Thank You for Participating in the April #Frumpy2Fab Challenge!

7 Ladies To Give You Fashion Inspiration

It’s the end of week 4 of the Aprill #Frumpy2Fab Challenge. The challenge was started by Saidah from A Proverbs Wife to up her game while working at home. I started the challenge in February as a way to challenge myself to use the clothes I had in my closet and the makeup I had purchased. I had such great feedback during that month that I was inspired to spread the word. It has been a great learning experience for me. Have you been participating?

Getting Compliments From Your Man Is Easy with the #Frumpy2Fab Challenge!

In January I read a post on the site A Proverbs Wife, where Saidah challenged women to up their game at home. She explained that as a stay at home mom, it becomes easy to get into a slump. It is comfy to stay in pajamas if you do not have to leave the house. While I am not a stay at home mom, I knew that I was in a slump. I had clothes in my closet and makeup to paint my face with but I wasn’t using either. I remember months back I would say to myself, next month, you’ll start next month and take extra time to get yourself put together. Or else its just wasted money. The next month would come though and I’d still grab the same jeans, throw on a comfy t-shirt, slather my facial moisturizer on my face and call it a day. Do you have days like that too?

The last few months I’ve been spending a lot of one-on-one time with my niece, helping her on a journey towards getting to know God.  We’ve made this tradition of going to mass and then off to eat.  We have the craziest conversations at times, and I find myself fascinated with her.  Continue reading Always Encourage the Children in Your Life!
