Feelin' Thrifty!

Im so excited to show off my thrift store find! I recently moved into a new place and Ive really been in the mood to change up my decor a little bit. Im on a pretty tight budget these days so I had to pull out the spray paint and use a little creativity!

I found this old white glass globe at the local goodwill. Im guessing it was once a part of a light fixture or possibly even a lamp (there are openings on both ends). As soon as I laid eyes on it, I immediately pictured it in a bright yellow or a turquoise blue and I love the bumpy texture.

As you can see I went with a gray color instead and I'm really happy with it! The blueish candle holder is a goodwill find as well.

The total cost of my new shelf decor is...
- Glass Globe $1.99
- Distressed Candle Holder $2.99

I already had the can of spray paint in the garage and I used fingernail polish remover as a paint thinner so the total cost with tax was just a little over $5.00!

- Moving Sale -

When my boyfriend decided he wanted to go to Culinary School I knew we would have to move eventually! His school is a good hour from where we live now so we are packing up and moving to Austin. Moving from a small town to a big city we quickly realized that for what we are paying now, our new place is going to be MUCH smaller so Im trying to cut down on the amount of boxes I need to move! Ill be having a moving sale in my etsy shop, lots of things have been marked down so take a look!


Much Love,

Buy Handmade

BPA Free Water Bottles

If someone were to ask me what I would hate most to go a day without, it would be a tie between my water bottle (filled with ice cold water of course) and my Berts Bees chapstick! I literally carry my water bottle with me everywhere, so when all this talk about BPA Free bottles came about, I had to get one.
I bought myself a SIGG Lifestyle Bottle and a Nalgene "On the Go" bottle. SIGG had super cool designs and colors available, so it was hard to resist but I wasn't a big fan once I started using it. It has a screw top so it takes awhile to open, if youre just using it around the house that's no problem, but if your working out or on a hike that can be a big pain!
Im also pretty picky about my water staying cold, and the SIGG bottle didnt seem to keep its temperature for very long, Im guessing that has something to do with the fact that its made of aluminum. The most positive thing I found with the SIGG bottle was that its very durable!
As for my Nalgene "On the Go" bottle, I love it! Its tall and thin so it fits in my hand easily (I have to use 2 hands for their thicker bottles) and it also fits in the cup holder in my car which is a huge plus!
The top slides open so its easily accessible and very durable.
For more information on both brands visit www.MySigg.com and www.Nalgene-Outdoor.com

GrassRoots - "Get Grounded" Facial Mask

I love this face mask so much I had to let everyone know about it! "This mineral-rich face mask works to purify and smooth skin while controlling oil with a blend of minerals from across the globe."
The mask includes White China Clay, Eucalyptus, and Peppermint so its very cooling on your face and the smell is so energizing! I use mine once a week and notice results as soon as I wash it off my face! Its amazing, I cant wait to try more of their products!

Visit www.grassrootslife.com for more information!

UPDATE: Im VERY sad to report that GrassRoots has discontinued all of their masks :(

My favorite Etsy Purchase

........so far. I have loved LOTS of the things Ive bought from Etsy, but this Radio tank I found at Sarstar77.etsy.com is by far one of my favorites! Im a huge fan of American Apparel (yes yes I know there is a lot of talk going on about the company but their tanks fit me best) and when I did a search and found this one I knew I had to get it! Its so cute and unique! It was shipped quickly and its just as perfect as it is in the picture! (Except I don't look quite as perfect as the model but hey, who does?)
I recommend this seller any day!

(FYI, thats not me, its taken from SarStar77's listing)
