Today I was fretting because the open can of pumpkin I had in my fridge was going to expire in a week and I didn’t want to waste it, so I adapted a recipe I had for applesauce muffins and used pumpkin instead! These are perfect for fall ~pumpkin spice~ times, and are vegan, have barely any fat, and low carb!
I divided my batter into 24 mini ‘muffins’, but you can divide them however you want!
Aaaah what one wouldn’t do for a new pair of shoes (wait a minute…? I’m not that easy…).
When I moved to Ohio it was all about taking as little with me as possible (says the girl who has managed to fill her townhouse), so did my music collection get weeded out? No! Books? Blasphemy! Tee Shirts? Come on now. Jeans? I laugh at you. Shoes? Surprisingly yes.
I am a self proclaimed shoe whore. Me love them long time; but when I was packing and going through my collection that once filled one closet from floor to ceiling I thought to myself: “You don’t need all of these” so friends with a size 8 (random slim 8.5’s) and good will reaped the benefits of the great purge. Cool right? Well not so much when you are looking at your shoe collection vs. clothes and are like “where are my yellow pumps? Where did they…oooh.” *drops head in sadness* Now if I were in NYC this would easily be fixed with a weekend in the village spending money I didn’t have and asking my momma to spot me rent. But I’m not. I’m in ______ Ohio (exact location bleeped out because I’ve experienced the wrath of cyber stalkers *watch the info you post kiddies*) and If I told you what it takes to just go LOOK at some shoes… You would weep for me. What is a girl to do? I’ll tell you what?! The mighty mighty innanet that’s what!!!
I’ve learned to master the internet for shoe needs and I’d like to share with some, the fabulous world of shoe clubs. Last year I spit on them because, well, hehehe I could. AND the “shoe consultants” thought I wanted to look like my store of preference was Rainbow (get those felt cheetah print pumps all the way out of the paint) Just fabulous was public enemy #1. But they got better. A lot better. The shoes (depending on what you pick) looked way less cheap. The deals are pretty good: 1st pair 19.95, BOGO, Free ground shipping and $5 expedited shipping) I literally purchased 3 pair of very nice shoes for under $75.00. No, don’t wipe your eyes or spit out valuable Starbucks; because you heard me correctly. Oh now some of their styles are clearly knock-offish, but Steve Madden was like the God father of knock off so why we getting mad now? Jessica Simpson does it (her JC style shoe) Bakers does it (aka stripper shoe store central) and so does Aldo’s to name a few. All’s I care about is the CAQ… Comfort, Arch, Quality. Out of all the shoe clubs, and there are a few. The top two runners IMHO are Just Fabulous and Shoe Dazzle.
Again if you want more bang for your buck, Just Fab (above) is fantastic with their daily deals. I am NOT a fan of their clothing or jewelry however. Picture me paying $40 for accessories as long as there is Etsy and F21… not sold sir, sorry.
KARLI (not bogo…figures)
NADYAH (also not BOGO)
Now ShoeDazzle (above) isn’t great with the daily bargains (though they do have a BOGO going on now) AND their shoes START at 39.95 but their styles are way trendier and dare I say they look like they are a better quality. Their site is also more fashion forward and a better one stop shop option (if you like one stop shopping AND clubwear). I like how they give you ideas on how to complete a look and not just shoes. GREAT marketing ploy as it makes you say “yes, yes a chunky bangle would go GREAT with these wedges…oh are you also suggesting a bangle? Let me take a gander…” you get my drift.
So for all my frugal fashion forward friends who just can’t get to the nearest city, shops, malls, or have social anxiety issues (real talk) I hope this online option proves helpful in your shopping endeavors.
