Don’t Stop Pop That

Is your work place drab and unbecoming? Do you get the urge to go to Lowe’s and buy a can of paint and go to town on your walls in the office? Is your employer’s dress code “business casual” but people are way more casual than business? Ugh, I know… the horror. People will support terrorism if it means that they get a free jeans pass. Since birth like before I could even see in color my mother was preaching to me about how taking pride in how I looked was necessary. I am a crazy person and the way I dress goes along with it, its hard when where you work is not conducive to who you are. I have to dumb my wardrobe down on a daily basis so I don’t frighten anyone. The only way I know how to cope with the colorless environment outside of hanging pictures of my hot friends and fun places in my space is to incorporate color in my clothing. Girl yes, I color pop everyday and invite my friends who are in my same predicament to get it color popping with me!

Check out how we did it last week…pinks, greens, yellows, oh my:

Join us and get it poppin’ too,

Four Pairs Three Twenties

After Santa ignored my request for Jelly boots, I decided to comb through some online deals on the day after Christmas with a fifty dollar budget. This was a tedious mission since I had been summoned to work but I was determined and persistent. My first stop was at the site of the retailer that I knew for sure had the boots and in every color you could think of, Bakers. They weren’t offering a sale and they were listed for $59.99 plus the cost of shipping. As a girl who likes to get all the bang she can for her buck, I decided to pass on what was being offered.

My mission was interrupted several times by actual work; distracting me from my target. After handling my clients I refreshed my Instagram feed and there lied a gem from the shoe gods. Urbanog.com was offering 50% off any transaction that included at least $40 worth of sales merchandise! This is a website that I often frequent just because I love shoes and they have any kind that you can ever think of; a girl can dream can’t she? I had purchased from them in the past and had total confidence in the fact that they would have the boots that I’d been looking for at a better deal than I’d seen earlier on in my mission.

There was a pleasant surprise waiting for me on Urbanog.com as I found the jelly boots for $29.60 in blue. I went on to find that there was a section full of items that were buy one get one 50% off which could be combined with the promo code that would get me yet an additional 50% after I reached $40 in my shopping cart. After all was said and done, I had hit a serious lick. I checked out with four pairs of boots including a pair of trendy military boots, two pairs of knee boots, and the boots that Santa didn’t think that I deserved. I spent less than $60 including shipping, WHAT’S MY NAME? I was so geeked when I got them in the mail the other day that I couldn’t wait to try them on and share my awesome deal. I especially couldn’t wait to put on my jellies with my lucky blue scrunch socks that I’ve had since eight grade, nostalgia.

To top things off, I found an unexpected deal on some over the knee socks to wear with them. Kohl’s doesn’t really have much to offer a girl like me so I only visit the store when I have Kohl’s cash. After some Christmas shopping, I came up on $10 worth. I ran in Kohl’s and after probably an hour of trying to decide on trying to find something, anything, I found that Apt 9 socks were buy one get one 50% off. The over the knee socks were ten dollars each which means that I got two pairs for a little over $5 after tax. Score!!!

I can’t wait for my next mission. It’s a sin to not be thrifty, that’s the eleventh commandment, remember?

Not all of us can ball on a budget but for those who have it down, I salute!
