Save Money with Honey: Web Browser Extension

Raise your hand if you like paying full price? I hope the silent, yet still 100% unanimous answer is, “heck no!”

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved the thrill and joy of getting a good deal. I remember clipping coupons from the elementary school entertainment book we carried around in our car, understanding at that young age that clipping coupons was the responsible thing to do. As I got older, I remember my mom teaching me tricks to determine percentages while inside Limited Too. I know she was tired of me nagging her, asking her each price of every item I lusted over, but I know she was also setting me up for success as a conscientious, discount shopper. And trust me, that couponing and quick mental math applies to more than just clothes, but also grocery shopping. Nick gets so embarrassed when I pull out my wad of coupons or fight the cashier on gas points, but what’s wrong with saving a few dollars here and there! My Giant grocery store receipts show how much money we’re saving this year and I’ll continue to coupon away.

Amazon Finds: Spring Fashion Under $50

#ADULTING (1)

Spring is finally in the air and I LOVE it! The temperature is rising, the sun is out in full force and everything around me is blooming. Honestly, as beautiful as spring is, it’s my least favorite season of the year due to my horrible allergies, but I love to enjoy the beauty from my window until the wave of yellow pollen passes over our neighborhood. As long as I have enough Claritin and Zyrtec in my system, I can venture outside for a few hours to enjoy a family hike or a round of golf, but believe me when I say I can’t wait for May when blooming season is over!

My favorite thing about spring is being able to wear comfortable dresses, opened toe shoes and bright colors after months of being bundled up in dark, drab clothing. But like clockwork every year, I hate all of my warm weather dresses and tops that have been packed away since last season. Anyone else feel the same way?! I’ve always been a department store gal through and through, but recently I love adding cute, spring pieces to my wardrobe from Amazon! Amazon Fashion can be hit or miss when it comes to sizes, cuts, and the fabrics – but there are hidden gems online that are great additions to your closet! Plus, Prime Wardrobe makes it easy for you to try items at home before you buy!

President’s Day Sales You Can’t Miss

My “No Spend January” has come and gone, and I can happily say that I didn’t go binge shopping that first week of February! But now President’s Weekend is here with markdowns on everything – clothing, shoes, home goods, skincare and haircare products. With coupons in my wallet, Nick and I ventured out this weekend in search of the best deals and steals on every day items we need, as well as items we simply want. I can happily share we each spent under $300, scoring 5 pairs of shoes, athleisure, stemless wine glasses (6 pairs for $8 at Marshalls!!), a few pieces of workwear and some items for our furry best friend.

For those of you who didn’t make it out this weekend, I’ve sourced some of the best sales from my favorite brands and stores that you can still get online. If you’re reading this and don’t have my sense of style (preppy, classic may not be your thing and that is a-okay!), I highly recommend using HONEY when online shopping to ensure you get the best deal possible. HONEY is an online browser extension that takes the search out of bargain hunting and automatically finds and applies the best coupons currently available. I promise you it will be a game changer for your shopping experience.

Mustard, Not Just a Condiment

I feel like I have been saying this for weeks, but I swear in one weekend, summer has officially gone and fall has permanently moved in for the season. The temperature has finally dropped, the leaves are starting to change and it’s time to officially transition my closet from maxi dresses and sandals to sweaters and corduroy. Brands have been rolling out their fall and winter capsules for months but I am just now appreciating all the rich and colorful pieces – burgundy, emerald green, burnt orange, dusty rose and my new personal favorite, mustard.

I’m naming mustard the unofficial color of fall 2018. Everywhere I look – magazines, clothing stores, random strangers in the Lehigh Valley – I’m seeing pops of this color in light yellow to dark rust-yellow and to be honest, I’m LOVING IT. As a redhead, I always thought I needed to steer clear of yellows, oranges and reds, but I’m throwing my wardrobe rules out the window and embracing these warm, fiery tones.
