My Picks

In my first post, I introduced you to some of the newest brands that can be found at Shopko.  It ranged from home decor, beauty, and clothing for myself and for one of my daughters.  I am currently redecorating my bedroom/beaut space/office.  I am trying to show you that you can redecorate on a budget and how to make your space functional for small spaces.

Serta 3-1

I am starting off with something that isn’t so much a decorative piece but has been very important to me for a good nights sleep.  A pillow.  Yes, you read that right, a pillow.  Not just any pillow the Serta 3-1 Perfect Sleeper.  I love that it contours to my head for a good nights sleep.

You can also check out some of the other Serta items that Shopko has to offer.

 

 

 

 

Country Line Writing Desk

How about this Country line writing desk?!?  It’s the perfect color to be feminine and masculine.  I love that I use it as an office space or transform it into an area where I can sit and do my everyday makeup.  It isn’t too big or too small, just the perfect size for a small space.

 

A&I Velvet Plush Throw

Fall and Winter are upon us and with that said, we could all use a pretty Velvet plush throw from one of Shopko’s new brands, A & I.  It’s perfect to cozy up to on a chilly night, the backdrop for a pretty Instagram photo, or as a decorative piece to drape over an accent chair or end of the bed.

These are just some of my favorite pieces from Shopko, with much more to choose from.  To see some of my other picks, check out my board below.  You will find some coordinating furniture pieces or bedding.

 

 

I’d love to hear about some of your favorite pieces from Shopko.com! Leave them in the comments section and I will check them out.

Measurable Difference Review

at

Let’s talk affordable makeup- after all, we are budgetnistas.  Tia and I love finding quality items at a really affordable price because we believe it doesn’t need to be a luxury brand to be good.  We have partnered up with Measurable Difference for this blog post to show you some of the products they offer and a way to get some additional savings.

The Brand

The story behind this brand is pretty amazing.  Measurable Difference, founded by Helma Arminak, a former refugee from Beirut, Lebanon.  Created about five years ago with a dream in mind. Helma aimed to offer great products for face and body but wanted to keep everything affordable.  I would say that dream is being accomplished.

What I Picked Up

The Diamond Collection Well Stacked Makeup Collection- $12.00

This small compact palette comes with a blush, bronzer, eyeshadows, and brow product.  It is perfect for on the go and works well for creating a full face.  If you have been a subscriber for awhile, you know that I work very early in the morning- 5 A.M. to be exact!  I need easy to use, multifunctional products.  The shadows work great to create a nice neutral look for every day.  If you need to transition the look into a night time look, no problem!   I would suggest using some of the eyebrow powder as a shadow to create a smokey eye.  The blush is a beautiful mauve that works well with all skin tones.  The only iffy product in this palette would be the bronzer-  it is a bit dark.  If you are lighter skin toned, I would steer clear or use a very light hand.

 

Baked Face Blush Mini- $2.00

The blushes are beautiful and affordable at two bucks a pop.  You could easily purchase all 4 colors. All very wearable colors, but two of the colors are better suited for spring/summer.

Posh Matte Liquid Lipstick – Opera-$6.00

Liquid lipsticks have been all the rage for the past few years and these affordable options definitely do not disappoint.  The formula is very comfortable on the lips and lasts a decent amount of time.  The color is different depending on your skin tone and lighting, which I think is pretty cool.  The color comes off on me as a brownish purple- great for the fall season.

 

Scented Bath Bombs – Green Goddess (Get well quick) Eucalyptus-$4.00

What can I say, it’s a bath bomb.  All bath bombs are pretty amazing.  These smell great and have a great price point.  I loved them so much that I have already bought a couple more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve found Measurable Difference at stores like Ross, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls- but they can also be found online Measurabledifference.com.  You can get 25% off and free shipping using code 25JACK.  No need to rush!  The code is good until March, so pick up a little something each month.
