I, like most people, am guilty of what some call “champagne taste on a beer budget” or “eyes bigger than her stomach” or “expensive” or simply “living beyond her means”. It’s a heavy load to bear, especially without help from trust funds or doctor salaries. Lately, with the help of a growing number of discount shopping sites, made popular by Groupon, shopping has become much more accessible, affordable, easier and less stressful than outlets and Ross. No more buying generic or fake to get the deal; we want the real deal, the name brand!

My good friend blew my mind when she showed me this blog. The writer is also a food stylist, photographer and awesome chef. With each new blog post my brain gets a new wrinkle! I drool in awe at everything she posts!

Every party store I went to had no recollection of them and I always left feeling incomplete and concerned that I might be crazy for thinking they ever existed…
Do you love glow bracelets as much as I do? Is your favorite part about the Holidays the light-adorned buildings and trees? When you go to Vegas, could you have just as much fun looking at the neon signs as gambling? Maybe I have a raver inside me, crying to get out, or maybe I am like a puppy with an attention problem; but I can’t get enough of lights! Call me crazy, but my favorite colors (I haven’t forgotten you, purple!) are Sparkly and Glow-in-the-Dark. They’re real colors, I promise!
