Total Saving for the Year

Hello Everyone. Since it the last day of December and the last day of 2013. I thought I would share with you everything I brought this month. Which I did a lot better this month then I did last month.  The VS spray I decide to stock up on since the px was having a 5 for 30 sale going on. The last time I got body spray from VS was in May 2012. I also decide to stock up on make remover wipes since there was a sale going on and I had coupons for them. The picture of the day shirt I couldn't pass it up. Since I do instragram picture of the day. Also I have been eye balling this shirt for weeks. So I was happy to still see it there. 

With my move this year it was harder to keep track of my buys and spending. So I don't have much of a recap there. I just know I did a way better job with my money in 2012 then I did this year but that okay. Tomorrow we start a new year so to wait and see how I do in 2014. I hope you all stick around to see that. 



2012- $5,687.46

Hello everyone. Today I bring you my last outfit for 2013. I decide to wear my poncho today. I have worn it a few month ago but never took pictures of the outfit. So I made sure to take some today.

Hello Everyone. Today I thought it would be fun to look at my nails over 2013. Most of you know I moved to Germany in April. Which when I got here I didn't have any nail polish at all. So I went out and got 2 pink O.P.I. color to last me until I got my nails polish back. In July I didn't paint my nails at all due to I moved out of the hotel I was living in for 3 months and in to my new home So it was a super busy month and I didn't have much me time. 

I got a lot of my  inspiration for my nails from Pinterest. If you want to see the colors of the nails. Click on the month links to the original post.

Hello Everyone. I have had this chambary shirt since March 22 of this year and have never worn it.  I see tons of other blogger rock these. So it was time to actually wear mine. Instead of having it sit in the closet collecting dusted. I have been pinning tons of chambray outfits. I came across this outfit The Pleated Poppy wore. So I pinned it. At the time I didn't know it was her. I looked at the picture again and realized it was her. So I when on her blog and find out when she wore it. That way I could link it in this blog post. 

I'm happy with the outcome of this out. Just wish I had a lighter flower scarf but it all good. This outfit was the prefect outfit to do my running around in today.

For free handing them.  I might try and to one more Christmas nail before next week. Which you all will get to see in my month recap post.

The Pretzel Delight.  I didn't post the source because I have been making these now for a few years now. You can even see picture of the ones I made last year in my Christmas time post. These little bugger are so easy to make. Plus they are so yummy.  It hard just to eat one.  Down below you will find how to make them. I used 8 bags of rolo's and 2 1/2 bags of pretzel. Which was way to much for Hubby work pot luck on Monday. Everyone love them he said. 

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  • Place one pretzel for each pretzel treat desired on prepared sheet. Top each pretzel with one unwrapped ROLO Chewy Caramel in Milk Chocolate.
  • Bake 3 to 5 minutes or until caramel piece begins to soften, but not melt. Remove from oven; top with either pecan half or additional pretzel. Cool completely.
