Budget Babe: American Express Serve Card

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for American Express Serve. I applied for the Serve Cash Back card to facilitate my review and received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.


As we gear up for our new life as a married couple, Will and I often chat about finances. Since we will be moving out soon, we have tons of expenses in addition to the wedding. There’s furniture to buy, an apartment to find and then pay for, and we’d also like to have food in our fridge!

Currently we shoot wedding photography on the weekends to help bring in an extra income. And while that’s really helpful, it also eats up a lot of our free time so we aren’t able to do much else to give our finances a boost. Continue Reading

 It’s football season again! My fiance is a total sports guy and loves to watch games. I’m not into sports but I love the fun gatherings and food that typically accompanies a sporting event. I’m the girl who goes to baseball games for the cotton candy, ice cream, and nachos.

It’s also a lot of fun to invite friends and family over to watch a sporting event or game on TV. Most people serve up  your typical chips and dip, hot dogs, hamburgers and all the other things you’ve come to expect from a game viewing gathering but I wanted to offer you something new and exciting.

My Favorite VMA 2015 Looks!

Let’s talk about the VMAs!

I didn’t watch them.

I’ve never been big on award shows. Attending one might be a lot of fun but watching it from home? Pass! Hence. my delayed VMA blog post. I wasn’t in a rush to be the first one to talk about it, heck, I’m not even going to talk about the show. I just want to talk about some of my fav outfits!… that I googled a day after the show had aired, Lol.

fifth-harmonyAll of the Fifth Harmony girls looked really cute. Their dresses were fun, sexy, and VMA appropriate. I would have loved to wear the cream colored ruffle dress on the right. I also like those nude pumps she has on, I really need a pair of nude heels. Continue Reading
