Thanksgiving Is Right Around the Corner!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! I have always loved Thanksgiving (and this time of year, in general) because it means spending time with the people you love and eating SO MUCH good food, which just so happen to be my two favorite hobbies.

Summer is Coming!

Summer is coming, and that means the clothes are too! You know you’ll need to stock up on shorts, tops, sandals, etc, to get you through the season, and maybe you don’t have enough money to buy name brand clothes … but, that’s okay!

We all know the struggle of trying to look good and being judged if you don’t look nice, plus there’s always the issue of not having enough money for all the clothes we want. So, first of all, you just do you and don’t let others bring you down. Sometimes that’s how things go, but don’t be afraid to be yourself! Goodwill has lots of great clothes, and a lot of name brand clothes for not a lot of money. I found a brand-spanking new pair of Sperry Top-Siders at Goodwill for only $5! Like WHAT?!
