Thrift me Baby!!

February 23, 2011

I know that I have talked about thrifting before. Today  I thought maybe I would inspire you to do so, if you don't already.True sometimes the things at thrift stores are no good.But if you keep looking and don't give up you will find something. Reason's thrifting is good...
1. You are recycling.
2. You save money.
3. It is fun :)

Ok last but not lease... A lil photo tip :)
In this photo I have no make up on and my skin looks clean and fresh with no bags under my eye's.
This is why... I opened up my curtains on a bright sunny day, put the back of my computer to the window with my face towards the light. You want to be far enough away that your picture is not blown out, but you have enough light to hide all the rest. Chin up, but not to high. Try it and tell me how it works out :)
Thanks for stoppen bye :)
