Lovin Lately

Happy Wednesday, friends! It’s that time again! This week I’m lovin some home decor items and also a few pieces of clothing that are currently on sale! I’ve also included a book that has been on my list to read forever and finally bought. I can’t wait to start it! Since we just recently moved, I am in home decor mode. Being a very impatient person, it’s not easy to have a mile long list of home improvements, but only tackle one at a time. I realize that’s life lol but I want it all done now! Next on the list is painting. That alone will drastically change our space, and I can’t wait! So get ready for some before and after posts!

Muffin Recipe

I realize this is a fashion blog, but a girl’s gotta eat, right?! More like splurge! I LOVE to bake. Baking is a stress reliever for me. The problem is, I am a sweet-a-holic too.. Not the best combo. I have learned that for me, I have to indulge every once and a while. If I deprive myself, It backfires. So, on the weekends I will make a big breakfast for my family and muffins is usually on that list, and I always serve them to my family just like this….LOL not even close! It’s usually served on paper plates and there is no flower presentation in sight haha!  I do prefer to make things from scratch, if I have the time, because I can control what goes in them. I created this recipe after not finding the perfect one, so I combined a few, tried different combos and landed on this full proof recipe. It is great with any fruit. I have made it with blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. These are strawberry muffins in the pic.

Here is the recipe and fair warning: it’s not a healthy muffin recipe. That can be another post. This recipe is a splurge recipe! But it’s darn delicious 😉

Lovin Lately

Hey friends! I’m starting a new weekly series with a list of things I’m loving lately. You know it’s all budget friendly 😉 and some is on sale! I will be sharing my finds every Wednesday. Now that we are getting settled in our new city and house, I am going to be starting some weekly series for the blog, so that you can get used to what will be on the blog. On Monday’s I will be sharing one of my favorite recipe’s, Tuesday and Thursday will be outfit posts, Wednesday will be what I’m loving lately, and Friday’s have yet to be determined. It will most likely be something different week. I’m excited to have some structure and I hope you’ll love the new schedule!

For my first “Lovin Lately” I’m crushing on pinks, reds, and blues. That’s pretty much always though. H&M has some great finds right now and are available in all sizes, which is rare. They are one retailer that you need to jump on, if you see something you love. Target is also killing the handbag game right now. There’s an olive green cutie below that has completely stolen my heart and may have made it’s way into my closet 😉

FreeShipping.com

It’s no secret I love to shop…. a lot. It’s also no secret that I love to online shop. It’s become my go to, especially after having kids. The last thing I want to do is drag my kids to a mall and have them sit in a dressing room for hours. I usually try and order anything I can online before I buy it in store. It’s just what I do. Maybe it’s laziness or maybe I choose my sanity over dragging screaming kids out of the store lol.

One of the things I always order online, is my skincare. I buy the same products every time and always order from Sephora, only this time, I was able to get free shipping AND get 10% cash back on my entire purchase. Not only does FreeShipping.com offer cash back and free shipping at thousands of retailers, but they offer free return shipping and any current coupons the retailer is offering that will be applied on top of the cash back! It’s kind of a no brainer.

Some of my favorite places to shop through FreeShipping.com are: Asos, Target, Sephora, Overstock.com, and Macys. There’s so many more though! They offer a free trial period with all the benefits, and if you decide you love it, it’s only 12.97 per month for a membership. If you decide it’s not for you, you can cancel anytime by logging into your account. If you spend only 200 dollars per month online (I definitely spend more than that), the membership pays for itself with the cash back you’ll be getting.

Go check them out and start earning money while you shop! This is one post your husbands will approve of 😉

XO,

Mary ♥
