Formal Dressing on a Budget : 5 Pretty Special Occasion Dresses

It’s hard to look good on a budget these days. Especially when you have so many parties and events to go to. You can repeat your dresses all you like, but honestly where is the fun in that? Maybe for everyday wear, it’s easier to change your look as you can just mix and match your pieces – different jeans, shirts and skirts. But it’s different when you’re invited to a dressier occasion and are required to wear a dress. Wearing the same dress over and over is a lot more obvious than if you wear the same individual pieces over and over. And it can get expensive to keep changing out your dresses. Good thing I found out about suzhoudress. They have a lot of cheap homecoming dresses, long dresses and a lot of other styles to choose from. You are probably wondering why one should look for homecoming dresses online, but I’ve found that the options they have for this will be perfect for those little cocktail parties and events where you don’t really need to wear a long and formal ball gown. Instead, a nice short little cocktail number would do just fine. Take a look at my picks below.

Missing The Food In Armenia : Creating A Mini Armenian Feast



One thing that I absolutely loved about Armenia was this: the food! I came out with a recipe for Armenian inspired meatballs (see it HERE) awhile back. With that dish, I prepared other side dishes that I feel like is typical Armenian fare.

Pretty Short Cocktail Dresses for Special Events

My teenage niece one day asked me for advice on what to wear to her upcoming school events. I asked her what they were and she mentioned that she was having a homecoming dance. Now, having not experienced this for myself these type of high school events,I wasn’t really sure what advice I could give her. That was until I found a lot of homecoming dresses online on babyonlinedress. This site not only has formal and dressy occasion dresses, but it has mermaid wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses too. You can even get wholesale evening dresses. So many choices for many different occasions in life. But I’m here to show you the fabulous homecoming dresses I found. The ones I’ve found are short homecoming dresses in pretty colors like the ones I've picked. And these lace homecoming dresses are also just as pretty.

Work Outfit Ideas To Try Out

Trying to find something to wear to work every single day, 5 days a week all year round and still trying to look chic can get pretty tiring and time consuming. At the same time, there’s absolutely no excuse in dressing sloppy just because you think you have nothing to wear. That’s why I’ve gathered some outfit ideas for work wear so that you can get some inspirations and ideas on how to look chic every day.

Another thing that I think would help in the whole journey to dressing for success is payweeklystores.co.uk. This site gives you the opportunity to create a credit line with online fashion stores.

Tuesday Thought : We Don’t Know The Other Side of Things

Have you guys ever felt like you were judged by other people? And felt that it was done so unfairly? But at the same time, you feel like you have judged others too. You can’t really say that when people judge you it’s not okay, but when you judge others, you think it is okay because you think you have a valid point. It is NOT okay to judge anyone because we simply just do not know the other side of things.

And you may never know.

Have you ever judged a person for being too fat or thin? It’s not justified because you never know, that that person may be battling some sort of sickness or that person may already be happy in his or her current size. So you just do not know their side of the story.

Have you ever judged somebody to be lazy and think that that person isn’t doing anything with his or her life just because it seems they have so much more free time than you? You wouldn’t know, maybe that person is self-employed or working remotely and can work from anywhere. That person could be lying around in bed looking at his or her phones and you judge them for being lazy but you wouldn’t know that they are actually already working. So you just do not know their side of the story.

Have you ever judged someone for being in a bad mood all the time and always being the owner in the group? Maybe you just don’t know, that person is clinically depressed and has bigger problems to worry about and may even need your help. You just don’t know their side of their story.


I could go on and on but you get my drift. I’ve had some judgments of my own to other people but I’ve also been judged by others. I’ve learned that I  shouldn’t take anything too personally  and also try not to be so affected by it because, well I know MY side of the story and I don’t know theirs.
