Hidden Treasures

"There is no must in art because art is free." ~ Wassily Kandisky


Something that I have been digging lately is thrifting and rummaging. Once upon a time, thrifting was practically considered a taboo of sorts. People never dared to mention that a cute blouse, shoes or even a bed frame was a secondhand product found at a thrift or antique store. But major thanks to bloggers and style stars alike, thrifting is all the rage! I guess the statement 'Another person's trash is another person's treasure' stands true.

There are so many beautiful treasures in the world and I think that true treasures are timeless. Whether that is a clock, a string of pearls, a handbag or tea cup set - I feel that with great care, these treasures can be enjoyed by mulitple people.

Some of the many benefits of thrifting include:
-Budget friendly
- Getting unique one-of-a-kind items
-Getting items that you won't find anywhere else
-Having fun shopping because you 'discover' something new to you
-Getting to experience with your style more with  unique one-of-a-kind items

Some places that I love to shop for hidden treasures here in Houston
-The Open Thrift Resale Shop
-Antiques and More
-Goodwill
-August Antiques

There are several more antique stores and thrift shops - definitely making it one of the top cities in the U.S. for summer antiquing. There are so many it is practically impossible to list them all in fear that you will forget one! If you have never roamed through an antique at least once in your life, I encourage you to do so! You never know what hidden treasures await you!

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

**I received samples courtesy of Derive Colognes to review. Even though these samples were given for my boyfriend David and I to review, all opinions are our own.**
As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…
