#frugalfashionista : fashion face

  
I’ve been eyeing the too faced chocolate bar palette since I had seen the tutorial by Marianne Ramos. But spending $50 on a palette was hard to bite on. 

This past Xmas my new boss gave me a gift card to Sephora. It was such an awesome gesture. I knew exactly what I was going to purchase with it. When I found the time I headed to Sephora and picked out my semi sweet chocolate bar palette. 

Filled with an array of fun colors and scents of subtle sweetness I was a happy customer. I even walked out with a second item of Sephora brand contour/highlighting stick seeing as I was running out of my smashbox version. 

$49 too faced palette

$20 contour/highlight duo stick

Worth the investment!

#frugalfashionista : fancy foto frames

I needed a little love and personalization added to my work desk and my living room. I had done a great job with the decor but failed to put up favorite photos. I knew I would find frames with a little style and at a little price at marshalls, so I picked them out there. 

In a vast selection I picked two to match my home and office decor. Simple, clean, gold and white. Adds another little reason to look at my desk and smile!

Much love -MA 

  

#frugalfashionista : new years 2015

I’m not usually a Banana Republic shopper, that would be my boyfriend. On the way back from a Broncos game we came across a mall and stopped in the BR. They had a petites section and I stumbled across this jumpsuit. I never have luck with those but I decided to try it on anyway. It was on sale with an extra discount….and what do you know it fit perfectly! What a fun perfect alternative this would make for a dress on New Years eve.

For xmas I recieved a gift card to H&M. I already knew what I wanted to pair with this jumpsuit so I took my gift card in search of a faux fur jacket. After christmas sales are always set up for lucky finds. I came across this faux “sheep” coat, had my size, perfect price, and it matched well with my jumpsuit.

BAM, new years outfit success in just under $50! I already have the necklace, shoes, and belt.

Happy New Years Fashionistas! Stay Fabulous and Frugal 🙂

MUCH LOVE – MA
