Steal of a Deal

 

I had some time to kill so I ran into Home Goods, there is now one close to where I live! Yay! I was fresh out of cash so  I decided to snap some photos of cute things I found to share with you all. Home Goods continually amazes me with their great products for very affordable prices.

 

 

pumpkin

Gold glitter pumpkin $12.99

skull2skull

Black and silver skull with rhinestones $9.99. Skulls are very popular right not, but especially since Halloween is right around the corner, this is a steal! I’m kicking myself now for not buying it.

boxes

These fun tribal boxes are $12.99 and $14.99

blue box

Bright blue lacquered box $19.99- this is my favorite color!

dwell

Dwell studio bird tray are artwork $59.99

I thought this was a cute tray, but it has hooks on the back, so you can hang it or display your items on it! Very cute!

Outfit of the day

 


One of my close friends has an adorable boutique in Corvallis called Modern Avenue. She loves posting outfit of the day on her instagram and I love seeing the cute outfits she puts together! So I decided to do my own outfit of the day! It proved quite challenging since I didn't  have anyone to take my photo!

Shirt: blue and white stripes from h & m
earrings: brass leaves from Modern Avenue
jeans: silver skinnys from Modern Avenue
boots: DSW on clearance!

Dabble and Skillshare

Just read about a pretty cool new concept that will be coming to Portland soon. Dabble. $20 for a short class (1-3 hours, one time) on lots of cool hobbies and interests! Painting, drawing, cooking, business, etc.  I always think of new things I want to try and do but the classes are expensive and often quite time consuming.  Also, this is a pretty fun idea for a date night! Whether it be with a friend or significant other. Check out the cool video explaining it!

There is also skillshare, offering classes, digital or in person for as little as $5! A lot of classes are business related, but there are also arts and crafts, culianry arts and lifestyle classes. I came across a jewelry making class (digital) by I Spy DIY, a popular blogger. The class was free for the first 500 people to join! Pretty cool.

I'm looking forward to trying some new things :)
