Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

Fun, CHEAP finds!

I am a girl on a budget. I didn’t use to be, hence why I have to be now. Ha. Anyway, I hate spending a lot of money on stuff (except for jeans, purses and shoes) but tops, little dresses and accessories, the cheaper the betta! Look what I found this weekend. Super pumped about my purchases, all for great prices!

How cute is this pink lacey top? Thank you Forever21. PinkLouLou loves you.

I fell in love with this cute little necklace which also came from F21, and I found this simple little top at Express to pair with it. I just love the little flower, and the crystal-y feel.

This dress is super cute on, and I am loving the one shoulder look these days. However, are dresses becoming oddly reminiscent of 80’s prom dresses? Hmm, I couldn’t decide. But I thought what the heck it fits great.

I found these two little headbands at different stores, F21 and Kohl’s I think. Yes I was in Kohl’s and I will tell you why in just a second. But I didn’t realize how similar they were till I got home. Oopsie. Oh well. I like them both.

And I have one in my hair today. Exhibit A. Ok wow I just realized how big the flower is. Oh well, I love it.

And probably my favorite purchase is this: The Daisy Fuentes lace bra from Kohl’s. You see I was out of town for a wedding and I forgot the bra that I had to wear with the dress {yellow dress in a few posts past} so I had to go out and buy one. It had to be nude{ish} colored, and low cut in the front because of the dress. I did not feel like dropping $50 on a Vickie’s bra, as I had a perfect nude secret embrace number sitting on my bed, so I popped into the nearest store I could find and found this.

I am very picky about bras. They have to fit well, and be supportive. Lets get serious, I have boobs and they can be extremely annoying so I have to have a good bra. BONUS-this bra is adorable! I love the lace. I love the bling detail in the center, and I even love the inside print. I may or may not have bought matching panties, also equipped with a rhinestone detail. Girls, if you buy one thing, go get yourself a Daisy Fuentes Kohl’s special. My tat’s look amazing in this thing! I want a couple more! You need this bra girls. So thank you Daisy Fuentes, because of you, our girls are perkier, prettier, and a bit bling-ier.

Has anyone found any great deals/random great buys that I need to know about?? Happy Shopping ladies!
