Score Buckets!!!!



You have no idea how excited I am about the recent good news! In a recent post I mentioned I might have some life changing news and guess what? I DO! I applied for a new job within my company and I was offered the job! I will be going from a temp to a permanent employee with benefits at the end of the month! *happy squeal*

Life  changing may seem like an exaggeration unless you take into account juggling bills, checking ones account every time I need to spend more than $10 and the stress of it all verse paying all my bills on time each month with a little left over for fun. We might even be able to eat something other than chicken a couple of times a month or buy the more expensive spices like saffron.

I have already purchased a few things with the confidence of a millionaire. Granted it was only a shower curtain liner with rings and some thin velvet hangers, but it still excites me!

Speaking of shopping I need your help! The black boots I wear all the time are falling apart, as in the stitches are coming out. They are SO comfortable, but a cheap synthetic boot I found at Goodwill. I need a new pair, but have the worst luck with finding boots, so here is where you come in; please share with me any brands to stay away from and any reliable brands you love.  I am looking for a simple, classic black ankle boot. I don’t want anything with the upturned toe that seems to be popular lately. Think office chic.

So can you help a girl out?


By The Neck – Help Wanted


I have been doing a little purging lately and while I was going through my closet I noticed my Betty Boop shirt that I hadn’t worn in forever. The only real reason I have not worn it is because the arms of the shirt were made for a stick figure. I love this shirt and decided to try to refashion it, but after cutting off the sleeves I realized I didn’t have a plan.


I have no idea what I want to do with the neckline. I certainly don’t want to leave it as it is, but I don’t want something that will take away from Betty. I pined a few necklines on Pinterest, but I cannot make a decision. Below are just a few of my favorites.

Jumping in without a paddle is unlike me who is prone to over think everything! So now I need some help from y’all!

Any favorite necklines, pinned here or from another source? Any advice on altering necklines on a cotton shirt? Any things to avoid or past mishaps you would like to share? Anyone else loving the sneak peak of my curtains that will be featured in a post in the near future?
