Affordable Snack haul

Hello there! Yes, I know I've been gone for a while. Gone so long that I almost forgot how to create a post. I apologize for my absence and pray that you are still with me. Let's jump right in!

Today's post is going to be fairly short since I'm sharing a small haul. I have several food intolerances (dairy, gluten, potatoes, processed sugar) so at the beginning I was fairly frustrated with having to read every label and each item I bought. Since it's been a few years I know what I like and can have from a variety of places. I'm still looking to expand my options of course. I visited Trader Joe's  on a tight budget and all of my items came in under $25 which I think is great; especially because eating with the intolerances gets quite expensive. 

I bought 4 chomps. These are paleo approved and grass fed beef. No weird ingredients. Next are 4 RX bars. Yes, I said 4.....I ate 1 before taking the picture. Forgive me haha. Anyway they offer several flavors, but I prefer the coconut chocolate and the chocolate sea salt. Next are the pumpkin tortilla chips. These are a nice quick snack. Last but certainly not least are these baby bananas. For me these are a perfect sweet treat and for only $1.99! Yes and thank you!! As you can see from the receipt, my total was $23.25.

Well that's all for today!

 

Love you all and God bless

Spring Thrift Haul

 

What better way to start the week than with a thrift haul?! Everything was purchased at Diversity Thrift in Richmond.  Enjoy peeking in on my finds!

 

Tried to catch the detail on this flowy white dress but not sure if I was able to capture it with the lighting.

Like the extra details in the back. The navy and coral compliment each other so well.

Love the boho feel!

I found some shorts that weren't low rise and cut too short! Perfect fit

Thrift Haul

Hello everyone! I'm back to share a thrift haul. I love thrifting because it gives me an opportunity to try different styles without paying retail price. I can take something that would normally be considered "ugly" or oversized and make it my own. I purchased all of these pieces from local thrift stores. Hopefully this gives you a look into my style, which I'm not sure is really defined LOL! This specific day I didn't go with any items in mind other than getting some fall/winter clothes, but if you've been thrifting, you know that you will find more than what you're looking for. When I shop I tend to look at what ever catches my eye.

I love finding cardigans at the thrift store. Ones that actually fit me. This is a tan and black Forever 21 cardigan for only $1.98 This is great for transitioning from summer to fall and also for a mild winter (which we sometimes have in Virginia).

Black and white A line blazer. A fun part of this blazer is that it will unzip from the bottom or top.

Not sure if this shirt is for a man or woman but it's pretty cool. It's reversible!! I plan on wearing this as a tunic/dress with leggings. I probably won't have to do any alterations. (may take off the pocket) Just add a belt and go!

Another perfect holiday fit. Look at the shimmery threading. My sister hated this one because of the spheres but I think it adds character :) For $3 I couldn't pass it up!

At first I thought this was a bit above my age bracket hehe but then I thought about pairing it with some boots for the winter with a fitted top tucked in....yehhhh. This was supposed to be $6 but I was able to get it for $3

Nope...it's not summer but I still bought it. This will be nice and airy for the hot days. I was able to get a discount $3 since the waist was coming apart in some areas. That will be an easy repair.

I bought these as a group all for $6. That may seem like a lot, but the necklace was priced at $6 alone. The scissors is a brooch that i plan on using in my hair and/or as a necklace

The ring really caught my eye. It's a nail encrusted with gems!

 

Well everyone, that's it for today. I hope to be back to show you how I style some of the clothes.
