Thanksgiving Holiday Treats... and My Kat Girl

Thanksgiving this year was purrrfect! I spent the eve making cupcakes and "the day" eating an array of casseroles, watching movies and hanging out with family. Here are some photos to recap that day and a couple more of my little love I call Kat Girl.

My Love Javi and I (Diane aka BudgetBeautyGirl)

Thanksgiving cupcakes I made. Vanilla Bean with Buttercream frosting and handmade Marshmallow Fondant Leaves, edible glitter to add some sparkle.

Lips in Vogue

I went shopping not too long ago at Target and picked up some goodies for myself. I mainly went because I was craving some new lipsticks, but ended up picking up a couple more items I felt the need to have. I can't help myself when I see Vogue, especially when Angelina Jolie is on the cover.

I love Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polish. Without it I would continue to go insane. My nails always smudge when I wear regular nail polish, never fails. Full review to come!

I've always been fascinated with matryoshka dolls, but I've never come across one I would love to purchase... until now. The Lush Matryoshka doll was love at first sight and smell. The packaging is festive for the holidays and a perfect little package to add under the tree or as a stocking stuffer. Think of how exited someone would get when they open their stocking and it smells of apple pie. The price point is even better! At $19.95 you get a total of 4 items, two So White Snow soaps, one Cinder bath bomb, and one So White bath Bomb. You really get so much bang for your buck as compared to how expensive it can be to get one product. As much as I love Lush, I really have to go there searching for cute and affordable deals such as the Naked box I bought a while back. Can't wait until I use this doll... I'm saving it for the month of
December so I can get into the holiday spirt every time I take a bath.

BudgetBeautyGirl Tip: Look for packs such as this one at Lush and other similar shops. Not only will you get more bang for your buck, but it also allows you to sample a variety of products. Sampling such variety guides you in future purchases. You now have a better idea of what you would like to purchase in full size and what you should clearly avoid.

A Roaring Good Time

Wish I could have posted this a little earlier but my camera connection has been giving me trouble. Halloween was so much fun this year. I made some extra cash by baking holiday cupcake treats and had a roaring good time dancing the night away with my vary own Harry Potter (aka Javi Baby). We were planning on going as a 20s couple but the pinstripe suite costumes for men ended up looking like pajama sets. Next best this was his all time favorite series Harry Potter... and thus we were Flapper Girl and Harry Potter.

Hope you all had a spooktacular time as we did. Happy Belated Halloween!

I gave out Halloween themed Candy Canes for the Kiddos that came Trick-or- Treating!

BudgetBeautyGirl Tip: In stead of giving out individual gifts this year, try making baked goods or savory dishes for your friends and family. The true way to a persons heart is through their stomach! Happy Holidays!

Still loving Forever 21 at 24

Last weekend my Boyfriend and I went to San Antonio to visit family and do some shopping. Anytime I'm in San Antonio Forever 21 is a must. Here are some things I purchased and things I'm still craving! I promised myself I wouldn't shop again until my entire closet is organized from top to bottom... ugh... must have faux fur boots NOW!

Budget Beauty Girl Tip: Get the look for less! Save images of your favorite runway looks or fashion blogger muses and recreate the look from stores that are more budget friendly.
