My favorite Things Under $30!!

I've been reading a bunch of blogs lately where the writers have been listing some of their favorite things under thirty dollars.

Not that I'm a girl who jumps on the bandwagon or does the TRENDY things at the appropriate times, but I thought that this would definitely be a fun thing to do!

Follow along for a list of 10 of my FAVES/Gotta Have/Can't live without products! These are great items that I'll guarantee (or I'll owe you a glass of wine) will be a hit to any of your girlfriends for Christmas!

#1 Barefoot Wine
My favorite variety is MOSCATO
This is really good, and really inexpensive. Usually the 750ml bottle is about $7...the bigger bottle, which can be found in my fridge at all times is about $14!!

#2) Lolita Wine Glasses
These are the cutest glasses EVER!!
There are tons of different designs for every occasion and event!
Glasses are usually between $20-$30 depending on what store you buy them from
There are pilsner glasses for you non-wine drinkers, Martini glasses, candles, ornaments, and the line always seems to be growing!

This is one of my current favorites called GIRL POWER

How cute are these for gifts??
Some of my current OMG names are:
"Trophy Husband"
"Always a Bridesmaid"
"Tie one On"
And,"Better than a Sweater"

#3) Hot Buttered Rum Candle

From Bath and Body Works
3 wick $19.50
They are currently on sale and there are coupons available via email/with purchase in the store to get these for an amazing price.
This smell is incredible!! My entire house smelled like baking and butterscotch after burning for only 1/2 hour.  I need to stock up on these since they are a seasonable product!

#4) Starbucks Caramel BrulĂ©e Frappuccino

A little sweet..a little salty...a little caffeine...a little coffee..a little piece of heaven!!


#5) Ballet Flats

I hate shoes. I would much rather wear flip flops or go barefoot 365 then have to try on shoes. It bothers me that affordable stylish shoes are either uncomfortable, or cheaply made, or fit one day and not the next, or smell if you wear them everyday for a month because they match everything and you have such anxiety about going to the store to buy more shoes and try them on and get frustrated because they don't have your size, or are not on sale that you just end up wearing stinky shoes until you can't stand them anymore and are forced to buy a new pair <------ shoe rant

I buy them in every color when I find a style and price that I like.
And Target never disappoints me!
These are in my current Rotation, and were all under $30

I wear these flat with skirts, dress pants, jeans, to work, church, craft shoes, etc. They are very versatile and comfy! WIN!

#6) Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF15

I am one of those girls that loves the way that make-up looks when it doesn't look like you are wearing make-up.
I have "parched" fair skin with hints of natural blushing, well that's what the Clinique lady said! My skin is a little dry, because I don't drink nearly enough, yes mom, I know 8 glasses of water a day

So I was looking for a foundation to even out my skin tones, yet give me a little bit of color, and this product is AMAZING!! It's $24.50/bottle, but well worth it!

#7) Pampered Chef Mini Serving Spatula
I use this for brownies, meatloaf, pie, cakes, it's a great piece- if you don't have one, you really should!

Land O Lakes

"No more Basic Lip Balm"

Makes my lips feel "kissable" and sooo soft!!!
It's available in lots of tints/flavors.
I currently use QUENCHED.

#10) Favorite Scoopneck T 

I wear these t shirts all year! Even to bed because they are sooo incredibly comfy!

That concludes my list of my 10 Favorite things under $30!

I hope you take my advice and check out a few of them!!
