Good Work Gal Pals*

Humble Bumble Bee*

Maybe it’s just me recently, but lately I’ve felt that on a daily basis it’s easy to underestimate the influence we have on one another. Thinking that no one is watching us, hearing us, or feeling us. Thinking that the normal and average things we do, do not have power like: Saying thank you. Completing an […]

Working that beach cover up at night may seem a little out of the box, but as we like to think at Polished for Pennies, potential lies in everything and it’s all about how you look at something! So if you look at that beach cover up as more of a tunic, your mind will get […]

Oh La La Ode to a Simple Dinner*

The first thing that came to mind when I wanted to throw a dinner for friends with an ode to “Oh La La “, was the thought of a simple meal with special details that wouldn’t break the bank. A simple meal that would still be sophisticated and tasty, but decorated by a table that […]

Summer Breeze Makes Me Feel Fine*

The first thing my mom said when she saw this look was, ” Tor what an awesome look for walking around the city! ” Now, when I looked at I envisioned myself feeling a cool breeze off of an ocean on vacation or skipping through a field of daisys by a farmhouse lol! But that’s when I […]

Why resurface this style?Because Memorial Day is a day that puts that summer feel in the air and the world automatically looks a […]

Winging Life and Making Your Own*
