From Where I Stand ( Week 8 of 52) #project52 #thrifting

Yesterday while running errands I decided to stop by a nearby Salvation Army. With no “wish list” in mind, I really was checking out what they have at this particular store.  I noticed that this store really carries a lot of furniture. Pretty good quality furniture at that, seeing how our vegan leather sofas are a hot mess, these last couple of weeks  I have been on the lookout for a sofa until the meantime of purchasing new ones. However, that has changed up until me finding sofa slip covers 70% off at Target over the weekend.


Any who, While at the store. The beauties below caught my eye. 

This coffee table came as a set and was in pretty good condition.

I think I'm in love with this sofa. It's pretty huge. I could picture myself matching it with decorative chairs.

This wicker dresser was a set. It reminded me of something I could find at my local Pier 1 or Pottery Barn.

Unfortunately for me, I could not get that middle draw to go completely in. I could see myself painting this dresser set and changing the hardware

A Special Day...


It’s mesmerizing having someone that you’re madly in love with. Someone that you look forward to seeing, I still blush when he pulls up in front of the house. As if he’s picking me up for our first date, and as another year passes by, I sit back and wonder how I can become a better person. I noticed that I've changed, I noticed he’s changed. I noticed we have changed for the better. No, we don’t live that fairy tale life (who wants that perfect love story anyway?). However, it’s perfect for us. 

Happy Anniversary Mister!!

Love ( week 7 of 52)



Yesterday my son and I went on our monthly "mommy son date". We usually end up at the mall and conclude our time with food. With his 12th Birthday approaching next week. We decided that it would be a great time to pick out his Birthday gifts. 



Of course we stopped by one of his favorite stores Game Stop. 


Another store we stopped by was Macy's. He's a trend follower and loves the "jogger" pants. Unfortunately, for me he's so tiny that it's difficult for me to locate jogger pants in his size ( they have a huge selection in mens and he still fits kids) We went inside Macy's had a pretty good selection in his size in the kids department and of course he wanted every color. 



We concluded our date with a late lunch in the food court. Moments with him I love and cherish...


Anywho, any weekend plans?

The Couch That Got Away #Thrifting

So yesterday while minding my business. I went to one of my favorite thrift stores. On Wednesday's they have 50% most of the ticket colors ( you know red, blue, green, pink etc). Well, I usually stop by the furniture section to see if they have anything I like. ( I was actually hoping they would have a entry table) well to my surprise they had this beauty. 

This was the first time in a long time that I went thrifting with my sister so it as great to have her opinion. Of course I was like " OMG, get over here and see this couch" 

Whomever owned this couch took great care of it. I mean this couch was pretty much flawless. I texted the mister with a picture with a followup call. ( yes, I wanted this couch) 

At this point my sister and I was in a rush to leave and with a price tag of $500. I was a little hesitant. The mister gave me the go ahead and it sounded as if he was really excited about the couch which made me excited. 

I didn't realize that i actually had to take the tag off of the couch and we were in a rush. I ran to grab the tag off and went straight to the cashier. To my surprise my sister whispered to me that the cashier told her that if I wait until tomorrow that the couch would be 50% off. 

Since we were in a rush. I decided to wait until today to get it. 

Well. After being home for a while I realized that the couch tag stated "no discounts". I found my receipt and called the store to see about the discount and before I could finish my sentence I was told that the couch was SOLD

***FAINTS***

Since we're in the market to purchase a couch of course I feel a little bummed out. We purchased a vegan leather couch a couple of years ago and it's a mess. I mean I never seen a couch look like this before. 

Anywho, have you ever lost out on a great find?

Eyes (Week 6 of 52) #Project52



This year I’m trying to wear makeup a little more often. I am actually proud of myself for creating an everyday go to look which doesn’t take me too long to put on. (Not pictured in this post) I’m not the type of person who will only walk out of the house unless she has makeup on. Yup, that’s not me. There are some people who have never seen me without makeup and some who have only seen me with makeup on, on occasion or not at all.

Trust me, “I love the skin I’m in”. However, I just feel that I look a little more put together when my brows a filled in and I have a little eye shadow and lip-gloss popping.





I just love how makeup gives my eyes a nice POP…

Anywho, do you wear makeup?

Motion (Week 5 of 52)




I am so over winter. Being born and raised in Connecticut. I am so over the snow. Yes, it’s very beautiful to capture in a picture. However, it is very scary for me to drive in and hunni we have been getting hit this winter. Today is another day of snow. Throughout this morning the flakes ranged from being small to big (in my eyes). 

Since I’m trying to utilize my DSLR camera more I thought today would be the perfect opportunity to capture a picture.

Don’t get me wrong I do appreciate the fresh clean air that comes along with snow. I just love the Spring/Summer 



How is the weather in your state or country?
