Beauty Find Friday: Thrifty Finds


Last week, a friend we hadn't seen all summer dropped by to catch up with us. We sat around the living room and talked; actually, we listened, our friend did most of the talking. We knew there were major, difficult changes going on in their life, but that's not what they talked about. Lots of "Remember when..." but nothing deep. When they left, in a way I felt like we hadn't really caught up at all. 

Which I totally understand. I'm in a similar place - there's so much going on inside my head and heart, I'm struggling to put words to it. Hence, I've been a little light on the blogging here lately. I'll be back to three times a week soon, I promise. I have so much to say that I haven't had time or energy to say, I might actually post more than that!

Even though I feel like I haven't caught you up here, I have been busy talking about other things elsewhere. I was interviewed on Sage Grayson Coaching and I wrote an article for Sweet and Sage, and this next week, I have a guest post by Alana of Sparrow and Grace here on Monday and I'll be on her blog on Wednesday. She is sharing here about how she finds beauty in everyday, and I'm sharing there about contentment and my confidence journey. You won't want to miss next week!


This week was hard, emotionally and mentally, so yesterday I decided to do something just for fun. I haven't gone thrifting for ages! It was the perfect cure. 

I know some people would love to have a shiny gold snakeskin bag like the one above. It looks pretty similar to this bag by Ralph Lauren for $158.


I've seen dozens of DIY tutorials for making these macrame plant holders. Unfortunately, I don't have plants, and so, no use for it. 


Someone decided to get rid of their NSYNC posters. Is that Justin Timberlake?!


Aladdin slippers! These are the real deal. Unfortunately, I didn't find a flying carpet to go with them. I'll have to try again next week.



I brought home a navy blue Banana Republic tee, a GAP black and white tee, and a fold-over clutch. The tees were $5 each, and the clutch was 70 cents! I wanted to make my own fold-over clutch when they first became super popular using A Beautiful Mess's tutorial, but you just can't beat that price!

By the way, Brian is recovering well from having his wisdom teeth removed. He's eating solid food again!

Next weekend, I'm going to a clothing swap for the first time! I'm getting rid of 18 tops, four bottoms, and seven accessories, and I'm not planning to bring that much home with me. I'll have to do an outfit post before too long to show you what I find!

Speaking of finds, have you discovered any treasures thrifting lately? Let me know what you found in the comments so I can ooh and ahh with you!
