#OOTD #KendellJenner

Last Friday  reported that Kendell Jenner spent $3,987 on an outfit. Now I have nowhere near the money to just spend it on an outfit , but we all know Kendell does. But you know I had to find something similar and more affordable..

The breakdown of this outfit goes:

  • Free People graphic tank - $78
  • J Brand jeans - $198
  • Aquazzura sandals - $565
  • Celine tote - $2,250
  • Linda Farrow sunnies - $896
Total- $3,987


The breakdown of this outfit goes:

We all love fashion , but it shouldn't break our pocket$$$. It so easy how you can take a $3,987 outfit and turn it into a $196 outfit. 

Until next time,
Melanie Paige

Beyonce look for under $50

This last week Beyonce stunned the world by wearing a very chic casual and semi-affordable look. I loved this so much that I wanted to re-create the look and make it really affordable. Every piece you see is under $50... You're Welcome!!
The jeans I choose was the same jeans that Beyonce has on they are called Skinny High Jeans they cost $40. I found a cheaper version of her shoes they are the Steve Madden Milyah Yellow Women's Shoe and they cost $50. Also, I found a graphic tank with another positive massage  Fifth Sun No Reget Tank which cost $13. Lastly, are the sunglasses they are from H&M retailing at $6.

Now you too can dress like Beyonce even if you don't have Beyonce money :)

Stressed out: Moving Time

Hello everyone reading this I hope all is well with you!! However, for me all is not so well. I'm stressed out people!!! So many things are happening in my life and I'm trying to balance it all. There's one thing that is driving me crazy and that is trying to move...

There are many things and thoughts that go into moving like.......
1. The price up front ( rent, security deposit, application fees)
2. The location ( I'm not from Colorado and I don't know many people that live here so I don't know what neighborhoods to avoid, what apartment complex isn't what they say they are etc... )
3. The distant ( It seems like all the apartments that I'm liking are nowhere near where I work)
4. The rent (all the closest apartments seem to be asking too much for the quality of the apartment in my opinion)
5. I could get a roommate ( But then I would have to wonder if this person is going to Single White Female me or if this person is trustworthy and reliable)

 The list goes on TRUST ME.  But I am freaking out a bit, I don't want to go into an agreement and then 2 months later regret it but can't get out. It's just a lot to think about on top of all the other things that are going on in my life.

Wish me luck guys because I have about 2-3 months to find a place.

What are some of your experience with moving? How do you manage the stress?

Peace & Love,

Daily Devotion Apirl 25

So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. (NLT) -Ecclesiastes 3:12 Do you acknowledge your happiness? Often times, we don't recognize our happiness in the moment but instead look back years later saying it was the happiest time of our lives. Take joy in your current happiness, even if it is circumstantial. Let's do a better job of realizing our happiness and not be a person who walks around happy and not even knowing it. What makes you happy today? Download this app to get your daily devotions:
