Weekend Sales You Need to Know About

Fall is here in Michigan this weekend, so I'm glad I stopped at the J.Crew outlet last week and picked up a few new pieces for the new (chilly) season! Today it's about 59-63 degrees-- burrr-- and I have a cold. What a way to welcome the autumn weather! I had to share a few great sales with you today, so you could also grab some new things for Fall:

  • J.Crew - 30% off final sale, 50% off select final sale with code EASYSALE. Ends 9/14
  • GAP - 25% off entire purchase with code HAPPY, ends today
  • Old Navy - 15% off everything!
  • LOFT - 40% off all merchandise with code FALLSTYLE
  • BCBG - extra 30% off factory outlet
  • Banana Republic - Up to 50% off entire purchase. (This is my boyfriend's favorite store, so here are some guy picks in honor of that!)

Let me know if you pick anything up at these awesome sales!

Happy Weekend!

Fall Finds on a Budget

We're celebrating Fall over here this week and next week, so I thought I'd round up a few of my favorite home decor items for fall, as well as some lovely layering pieces for your wardrobe... all on a budget! Your pocket books can thank me later.

Take a peek:

For your home:

For your wardrobe:

What are your favorite finds this season?! I just went to the J.Crew Factory outlet (a lot of the above products are from there!) and got everything I needed for fall for around $100. Shirts, layering pieces, 2 sweaters, a scarf...everything! I was one happy gal :) One of my favorite cardigans above from Target is so inexpensive and cute, too. I wear it all the time! When a new season comes around, it's fun to get a few new pieces, but certainly more fun when you get them on a budget! 

Happy Thursday!

3 Ways to Ease into Fall

Can you believe it's fall? Cause I sure can't! Today I'm sharing three ways to ease into the new season  over at The Inspired Room. If you want to savor the last few days of warmer weather, you'll especially love my fruit ice cubes DIY :)

I also want to take a minute to remember those lost on September 11th, and all of the selfless people who continually serve our country.  My prayer for our country is that we can come together, love people better, continue to protect our land and people living here, and serve other countries well. I'm also praying for protection against current threats happening in the middle east and beyond. 

Enjoy your day!

DIY: Gold Jewelry Dish

Last week, Ashley and I got together and did a little DIY project. Since Fall is on the brain, so is more gold (always!) I got this little bowl to store my jewelry in on my nightstand. Sometimes I climb into bed with jewelry on by accident, and since I'm so lazy (ha!) the little jewelry dish sits by my bed just in case :) 

I painted a little gold rim around the edge with Martha Stewart Glass Paint, baked it for 20 minutes at 350 in the oven, and it was done! Here's how we did it:

A simple and super inexpensive DIY! Have you done any new projects recently? 

Happy Tuesday!
