Favorite Things, On a Budget

Lately I've tried to be conscious about what I'm spending on myself. Being a fashion blogger, it is sometimes hard to reel in the spending. There are always so many new trends and one would probably become broke if they indulged in every single trend that came their way. Well, at least I would.

Earrings clockwise from top: 1, 2, 3, 4

Stud earrings are definitely my favorite type of earring. Being a mom to two little boys (and soon to be one more baby), I have found myself gravitating toward studs more often because of the safety factor. I don't think I want long earrings being ripped out anytime soon. Forever 21 is my favorite place to shop for stud earrings. They are priced so well (most are under $5!) and believe it or not, they hold up. I've been wearing F21 earrings for years now and I have yet to break or lose one.


I definitely like to branch out and try new cosmetics from time to time but when the budget is tight, there are certain things that I have to have. I love Botanics eye make-remover and it has become my all-time favorite. It is organic, moisturizing, and one tube has lasted me a year and a half. You can't beat that.

I try new mascaras all the time but you can't beat a $2 tube of mascara. It may not be the most creamy formula out there but it definitely gets the job done and I don't feel like I have tarantula lashes when I use it.

I've been using Almay liquid liner for years. It took some getting used to since I used to be a pencil liner person but I will never go back to having to sharpen a pencil. It seems to last a really long time and for $6.50, it's a steal.

I'm a huge lip balm snob. Nothing has worked for me until I discovered Aquaphor (check any drug store). My lips are forever chapped and it is the only thing that has healed my flaky lips.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and have a great week to come. I will try to have an outfit post up for you soon!
