    January Reads

    I’m a big reader. One of my goals for this year was to make sure that I’m reading a little bit each day. I’ve definitely accomplished that for this first month!

Here’s What I’ve Read So Far *These images are affiliate links meaning I may receive a small amount when products are purchased.* I’ve absolutely loved all of these books.  I’m a little bit on the fence about whether or not I’ll read another Dean Koontz book because some of them are just not for me but I did enjoy the…

    Simple Statement Earrings – Under $8!

    Target always has the cutest earrings and these ones that I just recently found are no exception. I wear them all the time! They’re perfect for a night out or paired with a sweater and leggings on a casual day. I can’t stand when earrings are too heavy on my ears and I love that I can barely feel these ones at all. They come in a couple different colors but I have the white/gold color. I would definitely recommend them if you’re looking for a simple but fancy earring. Wear these earrings for: A night out with friends Date Night A Day at Work With a casual outfit

    At Home Nails – The Best Salon Gel Alternative

    Hey all! If you’re in college and love having nice gel nails but without the price of a gel manicure then this post is for YOU.  I was in the exact same position my freshman year of college. At that point, I was actually spending the money on a gel manicure about once a month and that was not a habit that my part-time job could keep up with.  I decided that I needed to figure out how I could do my nails on my own so that I wasn’t spending all my money on a manicure. My Essie and Sally Hansen nail routine came to the rescue. I do…

    Get to Know Me

    Hey all!  Here’s a fun get to know me post for all those who just started reading or aren’t really sure who the heck I am! My full name is Elizabeth Irene I really don’t go by that too often.  The whole reason I started to go by it was I needed something a little longer than only “Liz” to go by so I thought why not throw my first and middle name together!    I grew up on a farm!
