Pleated Skater Dress + 2 Things I Learned This Week That Blew My Mind

Happy Monday beauties!

I listen to 104.1 KRBE almost everyday on my way to work and they do this thing called dumb question amnesty. Basically it’s a segment where anyone call in with a “dumb” question and it’s a judgment free zone. The radio hosts answer their questions or listeners call in to help answer the question.

Anywho, I always laugh at this segment because they are truly legit questions, even if they sound silly to some. My point here today is, if you already knew the 2 things that totally blew my mind this week, then don’t judge. 🙂 One of them is probably something we learned in 6th grade science but I wasn’t paying attention that day!

Okay so…you know that Meme that is like “I went to YouTube for one thing and than 5 hours later I know how to talk to giraffes?”

youtube-meme

Yeah, that one. Anyway, during one of my sleepless night escapades, and instead of doing anything productive I was reading articles upon articles that really added no value to my life except to share with you what I learned LOL.

Did you know it rains diamonds on Saturn?

kc-stauffer-meme

Yes, for real. I mean technically (according to the internet) “As the clouds of soot fall towards the planet, they clump together forming graphite, and as the pressure builds up closer to the planet’s core, that graphite is compressed into pure diamond, thus literally raining diamonds on Saturn.”

Why is this so fascinating to me?! Literally I read articles for like an hour because I didn’t want this mind blowing news to be #fakenews.

So tell me…did we learn this in 6th grade science?

Okay, the other thing that I “learned” this week was, actually this is a 2 part deal. Australia has over ONE THOUSAND beaches meaning you could go to a new beach every single day for 27 years! Also, on one of the islands off of the West Coast of Australia is Lake Hillier. A BRIGHT BUBBLE PINK LAKE!

Lake-Hillier-Pink-Lake

According to WorldAtlas.com, the pink waters of Lake Hillier are caused by the presence of the Dunaliella salina microalgae. I don’t know how accurate that is and those words didn’t sound amusing enough for me to want to Google so you can tell me if that is correct. 🙂 They already had me at pink.lake.

If you are wondering why I even fell into that hole, it’s because Brandon and I actually wanted to stop in Australia last year before our trip to New Zealand but with the amount of time we had, it didn’t make since to stop after all so Australia has definitely made it’s way to the top of our bucket list! And since we won’t be taking an international trip this year like we normally do, we plan on doing one when all is finalized with Baby Weaver’s paperwork so long story short, I’m up at 3am planning that trip, LOL.

Please don’t tell me I’m not the only one who gets sucked into this randomness and enjoys it oh so much! 🙂

Tell what was something that totally blew your mind this week?!

Casual Style With Tanger Outlets+ 4 Tips On Shopping Smarter During Tax Free Weekend

You guuuuyyyssss….I know I’m not going back to school but a gal livin’ for a bargain won’t pass up tax free weekend!

Today I am sharing 4 things you need to know about Tax Free Weekend to save even more money back to school shopping. Oh and read through today’s post to see how 50 of you can win a $25 gift card for FREE!

     back-to-school-outfits tanger-outlets first-day-of-school-outfit denim-outfits casual-outfit-ideas back-to-school

I was thinking back to when I was in highschool a hundred years ago and laughed because I remember picking out my outfit for the first day of school like I was getting ready for fashion week. I would pick out my outfits, shoes, matching nail polish and then of course make sure my best friends were coordinating too, duh. And then I remember my second year of college and I was all “where are my leggings?” LOL This outfit is definitely a good reflection of how I would have dressed for college. Super casual. Still a bit trendy but super casual. I’m pretty sure Fila was my jam back then too. I’m happy to say it’s making its way back!

Okay you guys, who likes saving money?! I know I do! As you probably already know, it is Tax Free Weekend here in Texas so here are 4 tips to shopping smarter!

1- Know what is tax exempt and what is not – Most clothing, backpacks and school supplies under $100 are tax free this weekend. See the full list here.

2- Know when tax free weekend is – Each state differs. Tax Free Weekend in Texas this year is August 10-12th.

3- Know when to start shopping – The answer is now. Whether you are shopping for yourself or for your kids, try to go in a day before to try on sizes and make a list of everything you need (sizes included) so that you can be sure to snag all the things without waiting in line for a dressing room. Even ask if the sales associate can put your items on hold for the next day. If not, at least you will know exactly what you need to grab and just need to pay or them. Tax Free Weekend is cray so this is the way to go if you still want to take advantage of the sales.

4- How to save even more money? – This is a 2 part answer. The first thing you need to do is visit this link to get your coupons that will get you an additional 25% off your purchases! Remember some stores will even apply this to clearance items!!

Another way to save even more money is knowing retailers are competing for your business so it doesn’t hurt to ask for a price match if you see the item at another retailer for a lower price.

And your bonus gift for today?? The first 50 people to text in to Tanger Outlets will get a $25 gift card. Visit my Facebook here to get the code.

Happy shopping friends and let me know if you have any questions!

Oh and also, if you caught my Instagram stories this week you saw that I was at Tanger Outlet’s Mommy and Me event! It was soooo much fun. Baby Weaver did not want to get out of the indoor sandbox. Yes, you heard that right, INDOOR SANDBOX! It was all indoors which is a blessing in this Texas heat! It had bounce houses, craft stations and the sandboxes. And it was inside. Did I already say that? lol. Anyway, if you missed this week’s they will have another one on September 4th. If you mention my name at check in you are going to get a really nice gift!! I can’t tell you what it is but I can tell you I kind of want it for myself lol. I’ll be sure to post a reminder for you mama’s a week before the event!

How cute are both of these outfits? So cute right?!

Did you know that Tanger Outlets offered coupons for additional savings?! I had no idea! I thought because it was an outlet and the prices are already marked down that they didn’t do coupons. I was so excited to find out they did! You can snag yours here!

I linked my outfits to the Ann Taylor Factory and the Loft Outlet websites in case you wanted to shop them online but remember you won’t be able to use you Tanger coupons there so if you wanted to take advantage of allll the savings be sure to visit your nearest outlet!

Tanger Outlets was also so generous to give me a code for you to text in to get a $25 gift card! This giveaway begins on Thursday, August 9th. So be sure to come back to the blog on Thursday morning to get the code so that you can use yours to shop this tax free weekend, August 10th-12th.

A gift card, coupons and tax free! Who could pass up that deal? Not me!

Let me know if there is anything you guys are looking for. Items your little ones, outfits for work or back to school! I’d love to help you out!
