5 for Friday

4:00 AM

Zero and Lilly update

Well, if you follow me on Instagram (@jerseygirltexanheart) you already know that my little babies are getting along just fine.  They still play and wrestle ALL. DAY. LONG.  However Lilly allows Zero to sleep in her doggy bed and they snuggle like little nuggets lol.  Zero is definitely comfortable in her new home, she finally went one day without having an accident in the house!  It only took 2 weeks haha.  Hopefully she’s finally house broken.

First Hair Tutorial

I’ve had so many of you request a hair tutorial and I FINALLY made one!  It’s up on my YouTube channel.  It’s a dutch fishtail tutorial which is pretty much my go to braid.  Whether my hair is dirty/clean (dirty as in I haven’t washed it in 3-4 days) I’m going out or keeping it casual I love this braid.  It can be worn to so many different events.  For my holiday party last year for work which is formal I had this braid, and then I also wore it on move in day.  I love love love braids, especially this one.

Cavender’s Giveaway

If y’all haven’t seen yet, I have a giveaway going on with Cavender’s that ends next week.  It’s for a chance to win a $150 gift card.  You can read this post here to see more information and see my lovely collection of clothing and of course boots from them!  I added the giveaway to the bottom of this post as well!  Also, just as a quick update.  To everyone who participated in the Gucci Scarf Giveaway, I’m still tallying up and making sure those who entered qualified and entered all of the mandatory entries.  For this giveaway I will announce the winner sometime this weekend or this coming Monday.  Thanks to everyone who participated!


Alright, I kinda, maybe, sorta, bought myself some gardening tools this week.  I have a first floor apartment which has a walk out patio.  It’s not an enclosed one so I’m free to walk around as I please.  Well, there is a small patch of grass in front of my patio that from the looks of it, was maintained by the previous owner but since they moved out it’s become invested with clovers and weeds.  So, those will be taken out this weekend and I will be adding some pretty flowers to my extremely small garden.  I never used to like gardening as a kid, especially when my mom would tell me to help her with the weeds.  Now that I’m on my own it’s a feeling of pride in my work.  Just a few weeks ago I had planted some seeds for my future garden and they are already growing like crazy!  I planted some sunflower seeds which the one is already a foot tall, and some glories that have wrapped themselves around the gigantor sunflower.  This weekend before my friend’s birthday party I will be cleaning the apartment and gardening. 

Thred Up

I saw Laura from I do deClaire post something on Instagram the other day and she had mentioned Thred Up.  I’ve seen soooooo many bloggers posting about Thred Up and never thought to look it up.  Since I’m living on a budget now I’ve been trying to find ways of re-using my clothes for y’all here on the blog without having repeats and I’ve been looking for stores/online shops that have great prices.  Well, if you haven’t checked out Thred Up yet, I highly recommend it.  It’s an online consignment shop.  I just bought a pair of white leather converse for $16!!!!!  Um, last year I paid $50 for my pink ones!  It was well worth the purchase and I’m super excited for them to come in.  I mean, how can you beat that price?  They were in mint condition too!  With that being said I have been checking out the website trying to find another amazing deal like this.  Living on a budget is actually kind of fun because I get so excited every time I get something for a great bargain.  I did before too, but now it’s even more exciting.

Happy Friday Y’all!
