This month I went a little crazy with shopping. I broke both of my shopping ban this month. Which I ended up going 124 days without buying clothes and  122 days with out buying shoe. I did get a good amount of stuff that I didn't need. Like the nail polishes but they have been on my want to try list. Also the shoe I didn't need. I have been wanting a pair of white shoe for a good amount of time now. So when I saw the white shoe on clearance at New Yorker. I just had to get them. 

My goal for August is to spend under 50 dollar.

Hello Everyone. It the last week of July. So that means its time for my monthly nail recap. Which this month I brought 2 new nail polish. I got the Essence Nail Art Special Effect in the feather effect. I also picked up Essence Color & Go Sparkle Sand Effect. Which I loved both of them. I was super happy to find them for a under 2 Euro.  Nail polish in Europe can be pretty expensive. So I don't get to try out a lot of the new trends for nails. So when I find them at a good price. I have to buy them. 

I also picked up this month a new nail polish remover and  it work awesome. It takes gel polish and glitter polish off your nail. The remover costed  3.60 it the brand Onyx Professionals.

Hello Everyone. Our second and last day in Prague was spent by our hotel. Since we had to be back on the bus at 2pm to head back home.  To pass the time we did some shopping. Also ate lunch at T.G.I. Friday.  I had no idea that there was T.G.I. Friday in Europe. So it was sure a treat and made the prefect birthday lunch.

When we got to T.G.I. Friday I order a coke to drink. The waitress ask if I would like to try there homemade lemonade. She started naming off all the one they had. Which on was lavender lemonade. So I got that instead of a coke. To my surprise is was super good. I didn't even know you could drink lavender. 
After lunch it was time to go back to our hotel to get on the bus. Right across from the hotel was L'OREAL building. So of course I thought it would be the prefect spot to take my photo at. 

Today I'm link up with Just Another Smith and My New Favorite Outfit for short week. Which I have decide it was time to get to over my issue with short. Specially since it has been so hot out. So I went out and brought these short last Friday.

4 Years of Blogging/Giveaway

     July 23, 2010               July 23, 2011                   July 23, 2012                         July 19, 2014
(No picture for last year due to I was on a blogger break) 

Hello Everyone. Yesterday marked my 4th year of blogging. When I start this blog back in 2010. I had no clue what I was doing.  All I knew was I want to show the world my outfits. Also show woman that you can dress cute and stylish on a budget.  So I started taking pictures of my outfit in the bathroom with my iPhone in my closet mirror and then moved to floor mirror. When I moved to Michigan. It only took me 3 years to invest in a better camera and got some help with taking my picture. 

In the 4 years of blogging I have meet so many great bloggers and became friends with a good amount of you. Which with out your guys support I probably wouldn't be here today. I can't thank you enough for your support you give me every day on my blog and social media. Also thanks to everyone who stops by my little blog everyday to read it. I'm very thankful for all the support I get from everyone who read, comments and stops by my blog.  When I started my blog I had no clue that I would have it for this long. I can't wait to see what the next year of blogging will bring me.

With these last 4 year of blogging I have learn a lot about myself. The biggest one is you don't need to buy new clothes all the time. Before starting my blog I had a big problem with thinking I needed new clothes all the time and that I had nothing to wear. I did my first 30 for 30 in 2011 and it was a real eye opener.  It truly help me realized that I don't need new clothes all the time. In fact in 2013 I went after a year without buying any clothes. 

To celebrate my Blog Birthday. I have put together a small giveaway for you all. With a few of my favorite things.  One person will win a 25 dollar gift card to Old Navy. Which is one of my all time favorite store to shop in back in the state. Also you will get a mint green scarf that has birds on it. If you been reading my blog you know my love for scarf.  No giveaway is complete without some German gummy bear and my favorite ritter sport bars. 

This giveaway is open worldwide and will close on August 8th, 2014

Hello Everyone. On Saturday July 19 at 3am. I hopped on a bus to go to Prague to spend my birthday weekend there.  At 10 am we got to Prague and did a walking tour around the city. Which we got to see the castle and the church. More on the during the week.  Prague is such a beautiful city. I'm so happy I'm able to across it off my bucket list. 

For my outfit on the first day. I wore this white sheer tank top that I brought on Friday. Which mean my shopping ban is now broken. At first I wasn't going to buy this top. My husband told me I should get it. In the end I'm so happy I got it.  I'm a little sad that it got a little snag in it. When we were at dinner.  Also with getting this white tank top. Helped me to rediscover my black capri. Which I haven't worn in 2 years. 

My hubby was sneak and caught this picture of me. As I was trying to use the glass around the court baloney to get a selfie pictures.  The courts yard had such an amazing view of the city. 

After we did the walking tour. We ahead back to the hotel to check in and freshen up. Then we were off to explore the night life in Prague.  I was a little bum that we didn't get on one of the party boats or dinner boats.  They all started at 6:30pm. Which we weren't done with the walking tour by then. We did get to have dinner at Botel Admiral. The food and drinks were amazing. It was so nice to eat dinner on the water and listen to the live music.

For dinner I just change my eyeshadow from a brown to a silver. I also throw my hair up. Since it was 32 Celsius out. Which is about 90 degree out.
