SHOP: Long Sleeve Tiered Dress | Flat Brim Felt Fedora | Jezabell 57mm Round Sunglasses | Gradina Block Heel Bootie (on sale) | 5 Pack Gold Bangles | Herringbone Chain Necklace | Paperclip Chain Necklace

Normally at the beginning a new year I like to set goals. You know – Loose weight. Dry January. Spending freeze. Save money.

Honestly – FUCK that. It’s 2021. I’m going to stick with a more playful list of wishes and dreams. Things I’m truly looking forward to.

And manifest the shit out of it.

Just seems like maybe this approach could be a little more effective, ya know what I mean? So I’m giving it a try! What on your list?

{amazon favorites}

SHOP: Dress | Stadium Purse | Denim Jacket (30% off)

Amazon addicts unite! Ha! I never thought I was a big Amazon-er. Then I started compiling this blog post and one thing led to another and I was going down the rabbit hole. And I realized, I’m an amazon whore…lol!

Truth: I’m still to cheap to pay for Prime so, I hack into my sister + Cory’s account to use theirs.

I’ve listed everything out with prices and a brief reason why I dig this item.

Do you have any of these Amazon finds? If so, let a sister know. Is there something I MUST try? Let me know!

{how I make money blogging}

SHOP: Crochet Sweater | Black Denim | Clogs ($40) | Sunnies | Starbucks Tumbler

Thirsty Thursday got the best of me. I’ll blame it on my Mom! We went to see The Lion King. Made a detour at Nugget after the movie for a bottle of wine. Found out they are having a sale on Bogle (my fave) $6.99 a bottle. So, we ended up getting 3. And a loaf of bread and cheese. Dinner!

Currently surviving on mass amounts of coffee, Lumify drops (THE best), kids chew-able Tylenol and my dark sunnies…ha! Seriously worth it. Sometimes you gotta get a little tips!

So, this week alone, I’ve had 5 people ask me about my blog. Not really sure why I post clothes. And why I always say “link in bio”. And “you make money?” Honestly, it never crossed my mind that everyone and their mothers didn’t already know what I was up too.

I’m spillin the tea on what I do . How I do it. And Yes, I do make money. Since it’s such a HOT topic. And it’s no secret, so I’m laying it all out.

Before I dive in, I want to THANK you all from the bottom of my heart! Thank you to those that shop from my blog, facebook or instagram. I hope you know how much I appreciate when you take the time to shop through my links. I work really hard to find the best sales and deals. To make it convenient for you! Truly, I enjoy it. And your continued support makes it that much more fun!

You. Are. The. Best!

So here’s the tea sis…..

Here are 5 simple things that I, for one, would normally reserve for the weekend. I’ve decided to switch it up and make my weekday vibes a little brighter and really take in the summer days….

One question I get asked all the time? What I use to take my photos and how I edit my photos. I’ve been meaning to write this post for sometime…decided today is the day! Ha! Here are some tips + tricks that I’ve picked up from other bloggers along with lots of trial and error.
