. . . for Lauren and Lauren: High Five for Friday

September 20, 2012

High Five for Friday

jeans: (kohls)   shirt: rue 21 $3 (similar)  wedges: target $8 (similar)

1.  Thanks to a 30% coupon at Kohls I got these pants for $16.  I also managed to find a dress for under $3 and a pair of pajama shorts for under $2.
I love clearance racks! 

2. I plan on making these this weekend:
Baked Mini Apple Donut Holes

Baked Mini Apple Donut Holes

3.  I'm so happy I waited to buy these booties because they were only $9 at Target. 
I know I've said before that I'm not a patient person but when it comes to waiting for things to go on clearance I can do that!


4. A few weeks ago a friend brought over these delicious grapes and I finally got to make my own. 


All you do is wash your grapes, roll them in Jello mix and refrigerate them.
I used the flavor melon fusion.  They were SO good!

5. I'm happy September has been moving pretty quickly, as the next three months are my favorite of the year.
As it starts to get closer to October I have spots open for sponsorship.
Check here for more info.
I'd LOVE to have you next month!


Have a great weekend!



Oh and don't forget to enter this week's giveaway for a $15 gift card to Forever 21!
