Hey lovies!!

With all of the excitement of The DUFF movie that was released last Friday (have you seen it yet, because it’s basically amazing!!), it took me back to my high school days. Although I remember high school much more differently then how it is now (and I’m not even that old!) We had social media but it was only Myspace or AIM chat, and smart phones were really non-existent or at least no one in high school had them yet, I think the BlackBerry and Motorola RAZR were the cool phones! Shoot, I was lucky enough to finally get a phone with a camera my junior year!! The iPhone wasn’t even released until June of 2007!!


So I decided to ask some of the team here at Blowfish Shoes a few questions about their High School experience! I even got a few of them to send me a photo of them from High School!!! Funny thing about getting these photos too, majority of the team had to give me prints of photos due to them not having digital, too funny!!

 Hey loves!!

I realize that it's already halfway through January, but I believe it's never too late to make yourself a vision board, which is exactly what I've done for 2015! I've made vision boards before for new room decor inspiration, working out,  a new job, anything that I need some inspiration for! They are super simple to make and are a fun, eye catcher when hung on a wall! 

For your 2015 vision board, gather your supplies which include magazines, scissors, glue, and a foamboard (I got mine from the dollar store & cut it in half!) & start clipping things out of the magazine that you see fit.


I found that I was cutting out mostly words & phrases so I went back and starting cutting out more imagery to fill in those larger blank spaces!

I highly recommend laying out the images on your board before glueing!! I ended up moving a few things around here & there and was so glad nothing was glued down yet!

Ta-Da!!! This is my completed 2015 Vision Board!! This year for me is all about working out & finally hitting my weight loss goal, saving money to buy a home (I couldn't find a photo of a house in any of my magazine, weird right?!), spending more time with my girlfriends, being outside much more including riding bikes, hiking, fishing, drinking more tea, working on my photography skills, going to some country concerts and overall just loving & enjoying my life & working on loving myself!!


I'm encouraging all of you to make yourself a 2015 vision board & I would looovvee to see them!! Show us your photos via Facebook.com/BlowfishShoes!! Let's make 2015 one of the best years yet!!!

Thanks for reading!!

Hey lovies!!

So I am the biggest bargain hunter I know! I have such a hard time spending loads of money on clothes & everyday items when I know I can go to the swap meet and get it for like half the price if not less!! This past Sunday I headed over to the Santa Fe Springs Swap Meet in sunny California to find a few specific things for my Hawaii trip (which is next Wednesday, gahhhh!!!!) I was sad I wasn’t able to find a see through wrap around skirt for my bathing suit…maybe I can just buy some fabric and make my own! I took some photos along the way to show you some of the crazy deals & crazy things being sold!!

 I could not believe how cheap they were selling shoes for!

I gave myself a budget of $60 and ended up only spending $30!! (includng admission for myself and boyfriend which was $3 total)

 I got two headbands, a pair of sunglasses, a long necklace, a maxi skirt, airwick fresheners, two bubbles (for our Spring photo shoot happeneing this week) and a hanging plant (not photographed). Overall I'd say it was a successful day at the swap meet! I mean, $27 for all of this....score!!
