forever 21 fab finds

I’m a huge fan of forever 21, trendy clothes and cute finds for right in my price range.  It’s one of my go-to stores when I’m in the market to add to my wardrobe, especially my shoes.

I recently went e-shopping on the site and found way too many pairs of booties that I want to add to my closet for the season.

Here are 5 of my top picks and of course, in Champagne Taste Beer Budget style, all at $40 and under.

1. stacked heel slingback open toe booties $32.80
2. stud buckle booties $31.99
3. fur buckle booties $37.90
4. suede wrap buckle booties $34.90
5.  suede open heel wedges $27.90

I absolutely love the deep hunter green heel booties but they’re sold out of my size online. It’s a tragedy, I know.

Which pair needs to be added to your seasonal shoe wardrobe?

#FrozenFriday top 10 finalists

*I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Kohl’s. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating

The minis received a surprise package from Kohl’s a couple weeks ago that sent this house into excitement. Those babes of mine LOVE receiving mail and when the box says Frozen with a giant picture of Elsa and Anna on it, the excitement doubles.

Inside was loaded with Frozen merchandise that’s all available at Kohl’s (see my top 10 gift picks here). There were leggings, a sweater, an Olaf necklace, an Olaf snow cone maker and, mini queen’s favorite pick, an Elsa dress. Not only is it one of the better versions of an Elsa dress up costume that I’ve seen, it also lights up with alternating twinkle lights sewn into the dress and sings! I mean, c’mon, what little Elsa fan can resist that!


Kohl’s is thrilled to be able to bring Frozen fans of all ages their new line of merchandise. Toys, decor, jewelry, clothes, games and much more are available in store and at It’s that line of goodies that inspired Kohl’s to launch their Frozen Friday competition.


Kohl’s celebrated it’s Frozen line by hosting inviting Frozen fanatics a chance at TV fame by staring in a Kohl’s commercial that’ll air during the American Music Awards.

From over 4,000 entries of people belting out the famous Frozen song “Let It Go” 10 finalists have been chosen and are up for your votes.

You get to choose the winner and make someone’s dream come true of appearing in a Kohl’s holiday campaign commercial. Watch the videos and vote for who you think deserves the spot. Then watch the AMA’s tomorrow, Sunday, November 23rd, when the winners’ commercial will air, to see who took the top spot.

Will your favorite win?
