Camo and Gold

Happy Friday! I’m loving this camo trend and this shirt is the softest one ever from Francesca’s for only $28! I will link cheaper versions of everything below as well.



I know y’all love affordable products so from now on I’ll try to find outfits and designer items for less! I’ve been wanting one of these gold layered necklaces for months now but dropping $40 at baublebar (all though I know their products are great) I just couldn’t. I got this necklace from The Styled Collection and they give $$ back to animals! The gold hoops are from Francesca’s as well so I’ll link them or similar ones below. These Vigoss jeans can be more than other jeans but they last forever and are super comfortable and worth it. I bought my Tory Burch bag from @shopkateyscloset on Instagram for half price! I highly suggest seeing if your favorite bloggers/YouTubers have a postmark or Instagram page where they sell their designer items or go to fashionfile or any resale authentic website to buy designer bags for a cheaper price. Like I said in my Ballin’ on a Budget post these black heels are under $40 and they’re designer! This lipstick is one of my holy grail products because it dries on and literally stays on all dang day!

Ballin’ on a budget | Pt. 1

Hello everyone! I’m starting a new blog post series called Ballin’ on a budget which means I’ll show y’all how to find designer items at affordable prices, and items that are trending/in style without breaking the bank! Sadly I won’t be doing any “save or splurge” posts but this will be very similar!




1. Tory Burch // 2. White shorts // 3. Denim skirt // 4. Off the shoulder top // 5. Oversized cardigan // 6. Layered necklace // 7. Nude espadrille sandals // 8. Saddle bag // 9. Monogram necklace // 10. Black heels

I’m in love with everything in the photos! I’m a lace up shoe fanatic so both of these designer shoes are right up my ally plus they’re great prices! Especially for Marc Fisher. I don’t know if y’all know this about me, but I love wearing sweaters and nice cardigans all year around (I know that makes me sound crazy in Houston) but I can’t help it. This oversized cardigan is definitely on my wish list. These gold layered necklaces are so in style right now so why not get one without breaking the bank? To top everything off this Tory Burch pink pouch is super cute and it’s a great price. I love finding designer items that don’t make you feel guilty for spending a lot…That’s what ballin’ on a budget is all about!

Favorite Nail Products

Hello! I hope everyone is or had a great Memorial weekend! Today I wanted to talk about what my favorite nail products were.

I’m sure y’all have heard me say countless times about how I have dry skin, so I love using this Herbal E Oil on my cuticles! I’m trying to ball on a budget so I don’t really get my nails done unless I have a special event to go to- so I’d like to call myself a nail polish connoisseur haha! Nothing drives me crazy more than chipping a nail right after painting them. I work with my hands so I’m constantly putting nail polishes to the test.

The drug store nail polish that I love is by Sally Hansen and it’s the Miracle GelI’ve purchased 2 different colors in that line that I love. They don’t chip and they last for days. Like I said I work with my hands so if you don’t then I’m sure they’ll last longer for you. When I say they last for days that means without any chipping. They retail for around $8.

One brand that I absolutely love (if you can find it) is Odeme. I bought this green color called Oz in the picture and it lasts so dang long! One thing I was guilty of was not applying a base coat so when I took the polish off it stained my nails yellow-which freaked me out at first! It is such a pigmented color and even 1 coat looks really good. I bought this from a local boutique called Beehive which I’ll link here. If you want to purchase this brand of polish online you can click here to go to their website. This polish retails for $12.

I had acrylic nails for years, so my nails became very thin. One thing that I don’t see a lot is biotin in womens’ daily vitamins so when I saw these 365 vitamins from Whole Foods have them I had to get them! I’ve always had to buy a separate bottle of vitamins to help grow strong nails so I’m happy I found these.


I hope this helps y’all with any nail polish or nail care questions! It’s always great to get your moneys worth from nail polishes that don’t chip and to take care of your nails with vitamins!

Beautiful baubles under $100

Everyone loves some good jewelry, especially when it’s under $100! From hoops to bracelets I’ll show you my favorite pieces from that you can get at Target or designer brands.

One ring that I’ve been dying over is this silver simulated diamond band that’s only $99, but looks like it’s hundreds of dollars! These gold floral earrings are too cute to pass up, especially for under $60. I feel like they could make a simple outfit dressy without overdoing it.

BaubleBar has a great line at Target that looks expensive but it’s very affordable. The pink burst earrings and blue tassels are under $20 at Target.

Pink burst earring // Blue tassel earring

Now, at BaubleBar’s actual website they are still very affordable! I’m talking about seeing a necklace for $700 and they made an affordable dupe for under $50 pictured here! This layered necklace is definitely on my wish list. They also have this gold link bracelet for under $40 which is a steal! I’ve always wanted a chunky gold bracelet that looks high quality, but don’t want to spend hundreds on it.

This James Avery silver twisted link bracelet has been on my list for months y’all! The best part is that now they are having a special called the Charm Event where you buy 2 charms and get a bracelet free up to $69 and this fits in it! Yep, I buy 2 charms and get this cute bracelet for FREE!

Silver bracelet

I’ve been eyeballing these Tory Burch pearl earrings for the longest time. They’re so classy and simple, I love them! I feel like retro is coming back into trend, so these 2 circle hoops are perfect for that and under $40.

Have a happy Monday!

Save or splurge | Pt. 4

I know this is kinda late since this is the March Save or splurge, but I promise I’ll be on time haha. I’ve had so many blog post ideas and this month is busy! I’ve decided to do blog posts Mondays and Fridays from now on just because I’d love to make y’alls Mondays brighter and Fridays happy!

Now let’s get to the fun part! I’ve seen these straw beach bags on every blogger’s Instagram, but not everyone has hundreds to spend on a beach bag. I found this similar one at SheIn and it still has adorable Pom poms! I’ve also seen this blue ruffled top on everyone, but I believe if you can get something like a shirt cheaper than the expensive version then you should do it! These black Valentino sandals are super cute but definitely a splurge if you want the real ones, but I found a similar (cheaper) version! The gold sandals are around $80, and even though they have a texture on the straps, you can get similar ones for under $20 (which I have). Some of  y’all know I’m obsessed with Jessie James Decker, and she has an amazing clothing line Here, but some of her items have cheaper dupes. This black lace top from Jessie’s clothing line has a dupe for $19! Although, I must say her clothing quality is one of the best I’ve seen and is worth the price because it’s still affordable. I’ve talked about these Chloe sunglasses (that I’m obsessed with) in a previous post about how they’re $376, well I’ve found a pair that’s under $50! Not ashamed to say I bought them for my upcoming trip this month!

 Lastly, one shirt that I’ve loved for months is the eyelash and lips shirt from Nordstrom, but $50 for a  simple graphic t-shirt just makes me go “eh”.  I’ve recently created a fundraiser so that I can go to an eyelash certification class this summer, and I’m selling the cheaper version of these shirts! They come in different styles and colors and guess what?! They’re under $24! What a steal, and you’ll be helping me achieve my dreams! You can get them Here!




1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10. // 11. // 12. // 13. // 14.

I don’t think I’ve ever told y’all how the links work, but all you have to do is click the number that I linked that matches the item number and it sends you straight to that website and item if you wanted to buy it! If you end up buying a shirt (#13) with the link provided just know that I greatly appreciate you! There’s a little story about why I’m selling those shirts on the link!
I hope y’all have a great Monday and week!
