Elf Eyeliner Pencil: I know some people are all about the Elf products, but I have not found that they're all the best option. Actually, I bought like ten different makeup items from the Elf line about a month ago & the only one I really like is the eyeliner pencil. But, for $1, I could try out some things to find one I liked & I really think this is one Elf product you can save with. It has great color & it lasts all day with my Urban Decay primer underneath.
TJ Maxx Bras: Okay, I don't know about you but Victoria's Secret bras, despite being really pretty, are just not in my budget. What I should say is, I would rather spend that $60 on something else, like maybe something people actually see? If you have really large ta-tas or are looking for something special, maybe you should spend a little more at a lingerie retailer, but I have pretty average sized boobies & mostly, I just want something that will keep my girls perky & covered, if ya know what I'm sayin. I always find bras at TJ for between $5-$10 and I've really liked every single one I've gotten. This week, I got a Jessica Simpson brand bra for $10. Score.
H & M Jeans: I've always thought seven jeans look fabulous on people, but I've tried them on and they do not look fabulous on me. And for $200 they better make me look like freakin' JLo. Now, I do like a good pair of Lucky Brand jeans but I also like to have a lot of options and you know, having a lot of Lucky Brand options isn't in my budget either. What is in my budget are these H&M Super Skinny Super Low Jeans I got for $20.00 yesterday. These are going to be perfect to tuck into jeans in the fall & actually, I think they would look great with heels to go out in now. Of course, I know they will probably fade quickly so I'll be extra careful with that but shoot, I could buy like eight pairs of these before it added up to one pair of Lucky Brand jeans.
A high price doesn't always mean high quality, as much as I'd like to argue that, and as a college student, I have a budget to work with. Or, I should say ... I should have a budget to work with. I'm not very good at it. But, I'm working on it, so if you have a similar post with things I could save on, please leave a link to it, because Lord knows I need all the help I can get!
