The Purpose of A Selfie

I was watching The Kardashians this week and Kim kept taking selfies while she was on vacation in Thailand and for some reason it almost "normalized" her to me.  I mean we all take selfies and she does it shamelessly!  I kinda love it, but kinda hate it at the same time because she is so self-absorbed.

Watching this just got me thinking about selfies... What is the purpose of selfies? Here's my take on the selfie trend!

  1. They make you feel good about yourself and boost your confidence
  2. You can take 50 pictures first and then you will get ATLEAST one of them that looks amazeballs! 
  3. You don't have to worry about another person in your picture getting antsy and not wanting to take more pictures
  4. You can immediately show friends on social media how good you are looking (refer to #1 for how this will make you feel)
  5. It can remind you how good you don't look and will motivate you to go shower and get ready for the day 
What do you think about selfies?  Are they A-Okay or just self-absorbed ways of making yourself feel better?

Diaries Of A Bargainista: The "Mom" Shorts

Top: Marshalls $16.99 / Shorts: Old Navy $10 / Necklace: Chewbeads $40 Amazon
I finally took some time to go through my dresser and decided it was finally time to get rid of my short short short shorts!  Shorts that cup the bottom of my butt cheeks aren't really appropriate for me anymore.  I decided it was time to invest in shorts that are a little bit longer and "mom" appropriate. Waaa, waaa........

I went to Old Navy because I've had really good luck with shorts there, but unfortunately they didn't have any of the 3.5" shorts ANYWHERE! Ugh, well I tried on the 5" length and I figured okay, these aren't too bad, so I decided to buy them.  The fact that they were only $10 was nice little perk too!

Lets also talk for a minute about this pink necklace that I'm wearing.  Let me introduce to you Chewbeads!  It's actually a teething necklace that I use for my son.  When I leave the house it's so nice to have this necklace for the little man to chew on, he absolutely loves it!  The only thing that I wish is that I had every single color!  I tend to wear white or black shirts a lot now just so I can wear the necklace.  I also love that it's not just functional it's fashionable!

Do you have any functional and fashionable pieces?

You NEED This Sippy Cup!

I was at Nordstrom the other day with my friend and she told me about this Sippy Cup that her son loves.  You see, once you become a mom there are products that you waste a TON of money on until you find the right one.  "Mom Referrals" are the best and you know that you can't go wrong!

This cup is called Zoli and what makes it so special is that the bottom of the straw is weighted so when your child lifts the cup the straw is still in the liquid, genius right?

The first day we used this cup my son just gnawed on the straw and he thought it was a toy.  Day one, not gonna give up, it takes a little bit of time for a baby to figure out something new.  Day two, he was sucking out of the straw like he had been doing this from day one.  He absolutely loves it.

Best of all, these cups are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale for only $16!  Seriously, if you don't have this sippy cup, then you need to go out and get it ASAP!

Diaries of A Bargainista: Paisley

I absolutely love the print of this dress.  Such a light-airy fun summery dress.  I probably bought this dress 5 years ago, I'm literally not exaggerating.  I have absolutely no clue where it even came from!  I remember I wore it when my mom and I went to San Antonio and that was a LONG time ago.  Any who, I'm just glad that it still fits.  This is a good example of just buying staple pieces that aren't too trendy so you can wear them for years to come.  I'm not saying this piece is fashionable, but the print and the colors make is summery, so I think it's a win-win!

Do any of you have dresses from 5 years ago that you still wear?

Things You Don't Know About Me

I have 3 tattoos, one that I got when I was 16!  A butterfly on the shoulder, unique, I know...

I haven't had my hair highlighted since March, it's starting to be natural ombre.

Reality TV Shows are my guilty pleasure. Anyone else as excited about Bachelor Paradise (is this what it's called?) as I am??

I'm a stay at home mom.

The Gap is my favorite store to shop at, especially when the have an additional 40% Off Sale Items.

I wear wedges for blog pictures, but never ACTUALLY wear them anymore.

I bite my toenails.  Impressive Disgusting, I know.

I HATE Milk, I specifically remember trying it when I was in daycare and gagging.

I love crafting and DIY Projects although it usually takes me a solid month to decide on a one project to work on.

Now that you know a little more about me, tell me something about yourself that I probably don't know!
