IMG_5776

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Thank goodness, it is Friday! Phew…it has been a long, stressful week–so, what better way to kick off the weekend than with a new VIP series! Whoo hoo!

Frugal Friday will be a weekly series featuring frugal outfit ideas, home decor, and great deals I find–it will always be a surprise! *wink*. Frugal Friday is all about fun, frugality and fabulousness–does it get any better than that?! *P.S. Oh, how I adore alliteration *wink*

For the very first Frugal Friday post, I shopped in my own closet and created a sweet, Southern style outfit that is perfect for Friday night bonfires…cute dinner dates…sassy square dancing…or even grocery shopping–that is what I did tonight while wearing this outfit *wink* Oh, yeah! Living on the wild side! *wink*

Now, as I snack on these delicious banana chips from Earth Fare, let’s take a look at the snazzy outfit details.

Snowpocalypse Round Two

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Whoo hoo! I am so excited that I did not miss Round 2 of the Southern Snowpocalypse because this Southern girl likes to have photo shoots in the snow *wink*

Two weeks ago, I missed a wintry snow mix that crippled the city of Birmingham. As y’all may recall, I was Stranded in the Hometown. BUT this time, I was home as snug as a bug in a rug, and I am so happy that I got to enjoy the snowy awesomeness of winter storm Pax. Oh, it was so delightful! Fluffy snow in the Deep South–now, that is something that I can take once or twice in a couple of years *wink*

Okay–I think that is enough chit chat for now because I am just dying to show y’all some of the fabulous pictures from the snow day–I mean–night *wink* Be sure to check out the VIP Facebook page for the rest of the pictures! Now without further ado, I present to you the VIP’s photo shoot in the snow!

After the photo shoot, we decided to have a bit of more fun…*wink*
