I am always looking for ways to save money and if I can make something rather than buy it, even better. I recently ran out of make-up brush cleanser and instead of spending money on another bottle, I decided to make my own after seeing a tutorial Pinterest. All you need is hot water and white vinegar.
Happy Saturday! I have been looking forward to this day for about 6 months. My beloved San Jose Sharks are coming to town to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning and I wanted to show my love for the Sharks through fashion.

I have an obsession with retro pop art and my home is filled with retro items. I have everything from coffee mugs, magnets and cocktail napkins to dinner plates and wall art. My obsession began years ago while visiting my favorite magnet shop, Magnetron, at Pier 39 in San Francisco. My roommate at the time, Karlene, and I were cracking up at some of the magnets and we both bought a few for our refrigerator.
