Chick-Fil-A Grilled Egg White and Cheese Muffin Taste Test Review

So you know I love my Chick-Fil-A, I have one of the calendar deal cards that give you a free treat (or treats) every month.  
Side note...If you are a fan of Chick-Fil-A and don't have one make sure you get one in 2017, they are so worth it!  $8 for at least 12 deals.   
My free treat for October was the new Grilled Egg White and Cheese Chicken English Muffin Sandwich.    

This guy replaced the spicy chicken biscuit as a healthier option for breakfast.  It has a total of 300 calories and 25g of protein.  For fast food breakfast it's a pretty good option.  

The sandwich consists of grilled chicken, egg white, and cheese on an english muffin.  Honestly I didn't love it.  The flavor was just ok.  I wasn't crazy about the chicken combined with everything.  I love a chick-fil-a chicken biscuit so I will definitely be sticking with that.  

Have you tried the new sandwich yet?  What did you think of it?

Shoe Thrifting Haul

Another thrifting haul!  I found a couple pairs of shoes over the last couple of weeks and thought I would share them with you.  Ya'll these shoes were brand spankin' new and CHEAP!!  

I picked up these adorable fringe suede American Eagle booties for $5!  I have already worn them a couple of times and I love them!  The fringe is such a cute touch.  I also found these Mossimo Supply Co. leopard flats for $2.  My favorite pair of leopard flats had actually died a couple of days before, so I was on the lookout for a replacement and low and behold I found a brand new pair!  Don't you love it when that happens :)

I also found this cute pair of cut out wedge sandals.  These are absolutely adorable and seriously I paid about $4 for them!

I also found a pair of Minnetonka moccasins that look a little battered in the pic but they are so nice and still had the sticker on them.  Ya'll they are so comfortable and I can't wait to pair them with some leggings in the fall.  Oh and I paid $3 for them...

Lastly I picked up this brand new pair of fuzzy sweater slippers for $1.  They are so soft and comfy and will be perfect for keeping my feet cozy and warm lounging around the house.

What have you thrifted lately?

Essie Nail Polish Clearance Finds for $2

Two of my favorite things: nail polish and clearance!  I stopped in Rite Aid randomly to pick up some Kleenex and decided to glance at their clearance section.  They had an extra 75% off on clearance going on and they had essie!  

They had two bottles of essie polish for an original price of $9, but with a 75% off they were around $2 apiece!  You can't beat that price!    

I picked up the colors Mink Muffs and Sew Psyched.  Mink Muffs is a really pretty brown with a slight purple tinge.  Sew Psyched is an army green with a slight gray tinge and a hint of shimmer.  They are both super pretty fall colors and I'm loving them!  I always love a good deal on good quality nail polish.  Definitely will be checking out the Rite Aid clearance section more often.

$500 worth of clothes for $40???

Y'all...I hit the Plato's Closet jackpot!  I have always been a fan of Plato's Closet, however, it can be hit or miss.  This time it was totally a HIT!  I actually follow them on instagram so I can keep up with any sales they have going on (you know I don't pay full price).  I found out they were having their clearance for $1.  I stopped by on my way home from work and guys I found so many cute things!    

Yes that's right I saved $540, and that's just Plato's money guys.

OK so I am not going to show you everything I got but some of the standout pieces that I couldn't believe I found were:
  • Ann Taylor Loft Leggings
  • J Brand Jeans (I actually found multiple pairs)
  • Paper Denim & Cloth Jeans
  • True Religion Jeans
  • Show Me Your Mumu Dress
  • Juicy Couture Top
  • J.Crew Dress
  • Nasty Gal Dress
  • Hudson Jeans
  • 7 For All Mankind Jeans (again multiple pairs)
  • Citizens of Humanity Jeans
  • and a couple of Free People Tops and a Dress

I also picked up some American Eagle jeans and other brands but I was so excited to find such high quality brands for $1!  Seriously y'all some of those jeans are over $100??

I looked like the crazy lady with my arms piled up with clothes (I think I'm sore from carrying them is my cardio right??).  When I lugged them up to the checkout the cashiers were pretty impressed with my finds and were commenting on how they couldn't believe I was getting them for $1.    

If you have a Plato's Closet nearby run and check out their clearance!!

I got Jack Rogers for $5?!?

Ya'll I love thrifting.  I love the thrill of never knowing what you are going to find.  My most recent find was a pair of Jack Rogers Liliana sandals.  Ya'll these are brand new with tags from Belk.  They still had the clearance tag of $76 and an original price of $128...and I paid $5!   

Again they weren't my size :( but I still snatched them up to hopefully sell on eBay or poshmark.

Brand new condition ya'll.  Such an awesome find!  

Let me know your awesome finds!

DQ Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Taste Test Review

Hi my name is Erin and I am obsessed with all things pumpkin spice...
Yes I am basic but fall is my favorite!
Last year Dairy Queen came out with the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard and I jumped on that bandwagon and absolutely fell in love!  I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of this delicious concoction this year.  

Take a look at all this delicious ice cream goodness!

So for review, the basis of this dessert is an ice cream base, pieces of pie crust and what tastes like a piece of pumpkin pie blended in.  Of course it is sprinkled with a blend of spices and topped with whipped cream.  I have had other pumpkin pie based desserts but this one tops the chart.  The pumpkin pie flavor is so rich and has just enough spice and is deliciously creamy.  My favorite part was the crunchy pie crust pieces, I feel like it adds something else to the ice cream instead of it being super creamy and boring.  

Verdict: Go try it!!

Designer shoes for $4?!?!

Y'all know good deals are my jam.  Well thrifting is one of my favorite things.  I love the thrill of the hunt, looking for treasures.  Sometimes you don't find anything and then sometimes you luck out with all the goodies.  

Well I found an amazing find at my local thrift store...

That's right guys I found Manolo Blahnik suede loafers for $4! 

They actually aren't my size but I had to get them anyway.  They are in excellent condition, barely worn.  I looked them up online and similar shoes were selling for $700?!?  
Seriously $700 for shoes and I just picked up a pair for $4, this is why I thrift.

Let me know your best thrifting find!  I love hearing good thrifting stories for inspiration!

Get The Look for Less: J. Crew Excursion Vest Walmart Dupe

Get The Look for Less: J. Crew Excursion Vest Walmart Dupe

Unless you have been living under a rock you have probably seen the J. Crew Excursion vest in the beautiful herringbone print.  Once fall rolls around Instagram and Pinterest are flooded with pictures of this vest layered with all colors of plaid, sweaters, scarves and boots.  The J. Crew version is pricey at $70 but you can get a similar version from Walmart for $14!  It has the same beautiful herringbone print, no outlined pocket detail but really pretty quilted detail.  For less than $14, its an awesome deal!
