Fabulous Frugal Fashion Friday: Fall Favorites

Quite the mouthful, eh? Today, I'm going to post under $25 picks from amazon.com

http://www.amazon.com/Misses-Plaid-Zip-Up-Hoodie/dp/B00404EM0G/ref=pd_sbs_a_8

I love this plaid hoodie. I'm quite tempted to actually buy it.

http://www.amazon.com/Kalisa04-Slouchy-Knee-High-BLACK/dp/B003TVC8C0/ref=sr_1_60?s=STORE&ie=UTF8&qid=1284783783&sr=1-60

Boots are great look over skinny jeans or with patterned tights and a skirt for church. These boots are just the perfect length, too.

http://www.amazon.com/Womens-Multi-Colored-Argyle-Socks/dp/B002X1AYHS/ref=sr_1_42?s=STORE&ie=UTF8&qid=1284783915&sr=1-42

I love argyle and these socks will keep you warm and will let you pull off argyle without looking too golfer.

Have fun shopping!

My 10 Suggestions for Homeschoolers

Hey Everyone!

As you know(or don't), I am homeschooled. So I'm sharing with you My 10 Suggestions for Homeschoolers:

10. Get Ready. Take 10 mins before you start to get dressed and brush your teeth instead of staying in your pjs all day. It will help you get into "day mode". Maybe I'm the only one who has a tendency stay in pajamas, but I doubt it.

9. Take Breaks(But Not Too Many). I take a five minute break every hour or so, more if something's especially super hard. It helps to take a quick breather.

8. Ignore your annoying brother. He'll go away. XD.

7. Say a Quick Prayer. I usually say a quick one before school and tests.

6. On the Go. If you have to go somewhere during the school day, take your work with you. Little tidbits of work can make a huge difference.

5. Find What Works for You. Trial and Error is the best method sometimes.

4. Get Cute Supplies. I don't know about you, but my brain functions better if I'm writing with a pink pen on a green notebook. :).

3. Swap Tips. Have homeschooling buddies? Compare your strategies with them.

2. Clean Your Desk and Room. It's hard to focus in a pigsty.

1. Be Thankful. Imagine if you had to go to a school. That always makes me stop complaining.

And as always, HAVE FUN!!!!

Me Monday-Anna

This week for Me Monday I'm going to post my favorite things from this week. If the links don't work just copy and paste them into the top bar.

Clothes:

I love plaid shirts. I have one almost exactly like this that I wear open with a tank top underneath or closed and tucked in to a skirt.

http://www.amazon.com/Old-Navy-Womens-Double-Weave-Western/dp/B003ZK9P1M/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=apparel&qlEnable=1&qid=1284435062&sr=1-6

Blogs:

My new must-read is What Would a Nerd Wear

My Camera:

I have the oldest camera in the universe but I still get a ton of use out of it. It's so fun make videos and take pictures.

I'm working on a really cool post for tomorrow or Wednesday so stay tuned!

Get It Done

Doesn't it feel good to get something done?

I'm so happy because I finally cleaned my room and it's not a total disaster. It just feels good when you work and get it done rather than putting off and off (which I do all the time). I finished my first week of school which was super hard, but I got it done.

Please don't think I'm bragging. I just want to encourage you to do what I did. DO that chore you hate. DO that thing that needs to be done. DON"T procrastinate like I did.

Introducing: Fabulous Frugal Fashion Fridays

The title is pretty self explanatory. Let me know what you think of this idea! I know that it's still Thursday, but I just can't wait. I'm so impatient. XD.

Back to School on a Budget

Ways to Save

1. Play with accessories. Try stacking tons of jewelry on a once. It's daring, but super cute.

2. Change up your hair. Lotsa girls find a style they love and stick to it. Changing up your hairstyle can make a difference on how your tops look.

3. Invest in some belts and scarves. They really jazz up boring tees and jeans.

4. Don't be afraid of thrift stores. Once I got a shirt at Goodwill with the tag still on it from the original store! Plato's Closet is awesome, too.

5. Clip coupons. Some stores have awesome sales and great coupons.

What To Splurge On

1. A coat that you LOVE. Try to get on sale, but still cute and good quality because your going to wear it several times a week.
Whereas, if you buy an ugly coat, even if it's super cheap, you're going to be stuck wearing it a lot. These are cute and cheap:
this or
this
one, both on sale at amazon.com.

2. One awesome accessory. I bought a cute necklace for $23 dollars at a boutique and I wear it almost everyday.

That was hard! I'll try to keep it up, though

Me--Kayleigh!

I have ben just swamped with school and swim team this month, thus the lack of post on my part...sorry. My swim team has a meet this weekend and I was going to try for a Jo(Junior Olimpic) time but, i slipped on the pool deck when i bent to get my water and took a little trip to the ER...6 stiches later I was home again. I really never do much but swim, swim and more swim team. Our County Fair is this week and I'm going witha couple of friends tommorow. Me and some friends came up with a new idea--Skirt day!! I know it sounds kinda lame, right? But We had a bunch of fun, We all wore our skirts to swimming on tuesday-we even asked our coach to but she dosne't like wearing skirts-it was a bunch of fun. the same day (me and 2 friends were 1hour early) my friend said she was tired so she was going to sleep, right there on the pool deck, so me and my other friend said, Ok lets go to sleep. When everybody else got there they saw us laying on the pool deck, ASLEEP! We acctully fell asleep! They were poking us and when the woke us up we all had a good laugh!

Me

In my "SC Needs Your Help!" post. Abbi of True Blue Abbi suggested I say what's going on in my life.

Here goes!

I've been trying to make the most out of my last few days of school as I start on Monday. I'm going shopping with my grandma tomorrow. I'll post some of my finds later. I've been sleeping in. I love sleeping. ;)

I'm trying to do more sports.I joined a soccer team. I love soccer and I can't wait for our first game. I'm trying out skateboarding for the first time. I like it but it's HARD. XD

I've been trying to be more artistic. I made a heart necklace today. I'm wearing it now.

Starting this month I'll be posting a weekly post like this called Me Monday. Tricia and Kayleigh- it would be cool if you did one for yourselves, too.
