How to Save Money on Modest Clothing!

     Hello Dear Friends!

     I do hope your having a good New Year! I'm really enjoying mine!

     Today I'm here with a How to Save Money on Modest Clothing post…trust me the struggle is real! Most modest clothing sites are expensive…at least for our family's modest budget, but there are some ways to get cute modest clothing cheaper =) YAY…!

1.  Shop at Thrift Stores/Consignment Shops-
     This is one of the best ways! These types of stores are getting new things all the time, but they're also selling things fast. If you see something you like pick it up! It might not be there when you go back. Also, don't expect to find something your looking for when you go…it's a hit and miss! If you "hit" you can usually get a great deal! Actually a couple weeks ago my Mom and I found the best consignment shop (sadly, it's a couple hours away)! They only sell skirts, dresses, and modest tops in the ladies section! To top it off they were having a $1 sale! Some of the nicer dresses were $4!! WOOT WOOT! We had fun!

2. Look at "Normal" Stores-
     You can find modest clothing at stores like: Walmart, Target, JCPenny, Forever21(Winter mostly), TJMaxx, Marshalls, ROSS, etc.. I've gotten great stuff at these places! I really would recommend looking =)  I just got a great deal on long-sleeved ($5.90) and 3/4 sleeved t-shirts ($7.90)  at Forever21 a couple weeks back. They had a high neck line (hit my collar bone...Wahooo!)! My Mom just found me a 3/4 one at Walmart on Saturday for $5.00 on clearance too!

3. Check Modest Clothing Sites for Giveaways, Promotions, and Sales-
     Sometimes you can get a pretty good deal, certain sites naturally have better sales than others!
Kosher Casual: ( offers great sales! I've been eyeing their clothing for a couple months, they always have stuff on sale for a good price! They also have giveaways frequently!   
Dainty Jewell's: ( They also do giveaways on their Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. I don't think their clearance is very great…still pretty pricey, pricey... Sigh!
     What are your favorite Modest sites? I'm always on the lookout =)

4. Make Your Own Clothes!!-
     Okay, I'm super excited because a couple weeks ago I sewed on a machine for the first time by myself!! My Nana made me an old fashioned nightgown using a pattern of a simple prairie dress, and she let me sew the front and back pieces of the dress body, the sleeve and bottom hem! It was so much fun! Anyway, by making our own we probably spent about $25 on our fabric (BTW keep your eyes out, Jo-Ann Fabrics was having a great sale on Flannel), pattern ($6), etc…Of course with the pattern you can use that over and over! A normal old fashioned and modest nightgown is expensive! The norm I've seen is $40+...that's not even customized!! Sewing can save so so much money, plus it's more fun picking out the pattern and fabric yourself! A sewing machine can be an investment at first, but it's totally worth it! Totally my new hobby!

     I hope you've enjoyed this post! Sometime this week I wanna do an outfit post or two. My Nana just introduced me to vests! She was so sweet and gave me tons of them! I've made some cute outfits so I hope to share them with y'all soon! What are your tips for getting modest clothing cheaper?

My Hair Care Routine!

Hello Lovely Readers!

     I'm here today with my hair care routine! Yay!

About my hair:

     I have very thick and curly/wavy hair.  I was using normal shampoos on it, but we discovered I needed to use ethnic products! What a lifesaver! It is also quite long.. Just above my hips to be exact =D So yes, it can be a pain, but to me it's worth it! I usually wash it every day or two.

Products I use:

     I alternate occasionally between 2 shampoos.. Just depends on my hair needs.

  • SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo- I love this stuff! The smell is wonderful, and it works amazing! $10.49 from Ulta Beauty
  • SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo- I love this as well, but it can be heavy.. So I only use this when my hair is in a really bad state (frizzy, breaking, brittle, etc.). Be prepared…it does have a strong scent. $10.49 from Ulta Beauty
  • SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Treatment Masque- I use this about once or twice a month.. I've used it once already, and I really enjoyed it! Sometimes if my ends are looking not so nice I'll stick some on like conditioner and yippee happy ends! I really love the smell of this one!! $12.99 from Ulta Beauty 
  • SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie-Works wonderfully at keeping my hair shiny, less frizzy, and stronger... Can't say it completely tames the frizz but helps. Also works with making better ringlets.   $11.99 at Ulta Beauty (again lol!) 
     That's it for products! I really wanna try some other SheaMoisture products eventually.. I really enjoy this company! Most of there products are Gluten Free, and they don't contain bad or harsh chemicals!

  • Goody Ouchless Finishing Brush- This is definitely tried and true for me! I love how this brush works. I hardly ever feel any tangles or knots while brushing, it just glides thru! $5.04 from Walmart 
  • Goody Finish Gel Cushion Brush- I like this brush... It could be better in my opinion, but it seems to work well... I do notice when there's a tangle or knot with this one. I really haven't noticed a reduction in frizz when using it either. I mainly use this when trying to get my hair smoother on the top.  $4.82 from Walmart

     So I stopped ALL heat in July, not that I overly used it, pretty much occasional curling with a Revlon iron or Hot Sticks. I've really been trying to cut back on split ends! Yet, I was missing the curls to be honest!
     Then one day I came across an Erin Bates hair tutorial video... Oh my! Such gorgeous curls! She uses Foam Rollers! You don't need heat at all! So for Christmas I asked for them, and my sweet parents got me some. With all this hair I have two sets! There not uncomfortable to sleep on at all and easy to use! Erin also has a how to take your curlers out video (definitely the best!)... Her two fingers curl trick works so well! Actually as I'm writing this I have super fun, healthy, and bouncy curls!! yay!

  • Conair Foam Roller, 48 pack-  $3.82 from

That's all for now…
What are your favorite hair products? I'd love to hear :)
