Second Hand Adventures

As some of you know, I'm a huge fan of second hand stores. It's like a treasure hunt to me. Every little corner or shelf holds a surprise. Some more than others of course but you never know what you will find.

This adventure was from a few years back. My best friend and I got a smoking deal on some jackets and a few name brand items too.

On the left:

Jacket: BB Dakota $12.99 Salvation Army. It's the same brand of jacket that Bella from Twilight wear in the first movie.
Skirt: $3.99 at the Goodwill. Not sure what brand it is anymore.
Gold shirt: $6.99 at the Goodwill.
Sandals: $a whopping $2.99 at the Goodwill.

Everything on the left was a total of $26.96. These days you can't even buy a shirt brand new for that little.

On the right:

Jacket: It is made by Matix and cost me $12.99. I was searching for one that was flannel lined but this was the exact jacket I had my eye on for a while now. Score.
Skirt: Old Navy, cost me $3.99. I love it!
Grey sweater: Was also $3.99 and would look great with a pair of skinny jeans and some flats
Black sued Convers: Really not sure how much they were but its been years and I'm still wearing them. Great find!

Everything on the left cost me a total of $20.97 minus the shoes since I don't remember how much they were.

I loved spending time with my sister by another mister searching for the everyday steal. Hopefully we can do it again some time soon and bring you some more awesome second hand finds.

If you have a thrift store story that you would like to share, send me an email and I'll feature you on the blog. SHendersonphoto(at)

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
