Monday, January 9, 2017 Review - Online Dollar Store, is it worth it?


Hi Friends! You should know by know, I live for a good dollar store! I saw someone post about  which is an online style dollar store so I decided to try it out and give you a Dollar1 Haul and Review. For the full haul, check out the video above. I share a high quality look at the items I got and I really go into a full review. Here I'm going to talk a little more about the site and share some additional pictures. has items under $10. I found most of the items were priced around $3, which is good for the majority of the items being name brand items, we know and love. On the site they tell you you how many of each item is still available. A few of the items I ordered weren't available after I placed my order, so make sure you get what you want quick, because someone else can beat you to it.

They offer free shipping $25. The items shipped USPS and were delivered in a reasonable amount of time.

What makes Dollar1 awesome is their $1 Daily Deals. These are limited-time + limited-quantity items at a great deal. I highly suggest signing up for a free account so you can get the daily email updates. I saw the Tide Pods for $1 which is beyond cheap but I didn't know that they deal would end. They have some really cool deals, that I've seen, so it's worth it to keep your eye on them.

All of the items I ordered were real. Nothing was different than advertised and I was extremely happy with the deals that I found and the price that was paid. I would recommend shopping on the site but please be aware that items do sell out and/or go quickly. You may not always get everything you want but you don't ever have to pay for the things you don't get. Dollar1 is a new company and if you know me, you know I have a soft spot for people building their business. They have me a customer and you will definitely see more hauls in the future.

Hi Friends! I remember moving into my first place, walls bare as you know what. I was young, broke and total rookie to the home decorating world. I knew I wanted to have beautiful artwork on my walls but I didn't have the budget nor the know how to get said artwork. 

Now a few years later the Internet is a vast place where you can find beautiful gallery style artwork on websites like Art Me Out. Art Me Out is a New York City based curated digital gallery of fine art photography dedicated to make contemporary art accessible to everyone, everywhere. In other words they work with some epic photographers from all around the world, cut out the middle-man and in turn offer you cheap and rare artwork! 

It's hard to believe that many of the pieces are photographs and not hand painted pieces. My husband and I actually got into a little argument because he just kept fighting with me that it was a painting. He was pointing out tiny details and trying to say there was no way it was a picture. Sorry buddy, it is a photograph! Art Me Out works with different artist and has photographs for almost any style. 

The artwork I choose is By Romain Thiery and the piece is called The Dunes Hotel. The photograph was taken in France, in 2014. It shows an abandoned hotel, near the Atlantic Coast. Now in ruins, the sand completely invaded the building with an omnipresent humidity. 

All of the artwork on Art Me Out is limited edition. When you visit the site, you'll see how many of each size are available and when you receive your piece you will have a certificate on the back with the which # you have in that edition. I was super lucky to score the first photograph for this piece in the Giant size. Pretty cool, if I do say so myself!

The artwork is easy to hang and comes with an aluminum back-mounting, so you get a floating effect once your piece is hung. I was able to do it myself, and that says how easy it was because I'm not handy nor do I own a bunch of tools.

Sizing varies and I highly suggest measuring the area you plan on hanging your piece because I was shocked with how massive the giant is.

What size did I choose:
Pricing starts with the classic size which is very reasonable at $149 (that's not including the 20%off code you can use)  

To say I'm happy with this piece is an understatement. The quality, the company, the shipping and the whole experience has been top-notch. I'm planning to decorate our entire master bedroom around this piece, once we move in the spring. Watch the full video to hear my full thoughts and what my family thinks.

Holiday Clothing Haul for Mom & Kids- Online Consignment Shopping


Hi friends! I'm sharing a Christmas outfit Haul video today. I went shopping on thredUP and found great name brand pieces for myself and the kids. ThredUP offers gently-used clothing and accessories for women and kids, that are amazing quality and are affordable price. ThredUP is offering my friends 40% off their entire purchase by using promo code FIND40 (this is off your first purchase so be sure to use the code before it's gone! Applies to new customers only.)

  I found a few different options for Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and any plans in between. My favorite find has to be this J Crew scarf that retails for almost $60 and I got for $26. The quality is like no other scarf I own. It's big and blend of wool and cashmere, yasss! I can't wait to pair it with a ton of other outfits!

This dress is from Cynthia Rowley and it's so soft! I want to pair it with tights and boots for a fun Christmas Day outfit.

Being on a budget doesn't allow for a ton of clothes shopping, especially designer brands like Polo. Shopping consignment or second hand allows us to buy clothing, we probably wouldn't pay full price for. ThredUP gives you the highest quality used clothing, I've tried and they really make you feel special with they way they ship and package your items.
