Shopping #secondhandfirst with ThredUP

I have to admit, I don't usually shop for used clothes now that I'm done growing and I can still fit into the same clothes that I've had for years!!  However, when I was asked to check their company out, I did.  And what as the first thing I found!?


A J Crew skirt that I had wanted so badly 2 years back, but had sold out in my size before I could purchase it!  This beautiful skirt was given the second chance to find a loving home, and I was given the second chance to add it to my wardrobe!!  So, even though I don't typically shop #secondhandfirst, my experience with ThredUP was a fantastic one!!


I also got this classy little black dress!! 

Y'all may not know this, because I try my best to wear color on the blog, but my favorite color is actually black {how Gothic and depressing does that sound?}  I have no less than 6 LBDs in my closet, but the truth is that any dress-loving girl could never have too many!!  Plus, I found this gem for only $6.99!!  And just look at how flattering that silhouette is!?  Even with the cost of some cute black wedges, a dress for only $7 from ThredUP could fashionably dress you for under $40!!


And last, but not least, I found this top!! {though, I did buy it thinking it was a dress}  I wouldn't normally wear a top this long, because I am so tall for a girl (5'7"), and I feel like this length of top messes with my proportions even more {which is why you will RARELY see me in a tunic style top with leggings, just FYI}, but honestly, when I added the thin gold belt, it made it look OK again, especially since that also had a slimming effect LOL + I always add heels!!

But really, we aren't talking about the individual pieces themselves... I'm trying to tell you what ThredUP has to offer!!

Take Home Points:

1. ThredUP is even good for those of you that don't usually shop second hand!  Because, guess what!?  I found a skirt I had actually really wanted 2 years prior, in my size, and for only $11!! Plus, they have a bunch of goodies with the original tags still on, if you're patient enough to hunt for those!! {which I'm not}

2.  I got 3 items, plus tax and $5.99 shipping, for a whopping $28!!  And since the skirt and shirt could technically be worn together, I got 2 outfits for $28 **Holy Moly that's a steal**

3. How did I accomplish that you may ask!?  Well, they CONSTANTLY do 30 or 40% off!!  So my advice would be to NOT buying anything from them unless they have one of those promotions going on, because, like Loft, they will do it at least once a month! 

4.  They also have a "closet cleanout" program where they send you a prepaid bag, for free, that will hold a laundry basket full of clothes!  And they pay you for the clothes they want!!  Gently used, name-brand stuff {just like everyone else, but this is better because you don't have to wait in line like at Plato's Closet, for instance}!  I just shipped mine 2 days ago, and will update you through my Instagram story {@ademurelife} on how it works out!!!

Y'all have a fantastic rest of your week!!

These clothes were given to me free of charge by ThredUP, but all thoughts are my own!


Flowers delivered right to your front door... Imagine that!

There may not be anything better to come home to than fresh flowers!!  And these surprise flowers aren't the result of the aftermath of a huge fight with your spouse either! **giggle**  They are just beautiful flowers, delivered right to your door, because its awesome!!  And all you have to do is unpackaged them, put them in a vase, place them in the desired room, and admire them CONSTANTLY!!

Even Cinna was excited to see what gorgeous beauties would emerge from that bright red box!!

I was surprised with a box full of gorgeous, multi-colored hydrangeas!!  And I'm not talking just a few, there were 10 giant blossoms that filled my vase perfectly!!  They came promptly, and in good condition (a few of the pedals did look like that had been traveling for a few days, but they were super easy to pop off, and the bouquet went right back to looking like gorgeous, Spring perfection)!  The flowers were packaged with care in plastic wrap, tied with a ribbon, and wrapped in brown crape paper before being boxed up... And the "Hand Tied" sticker was a super cute touch!!!  **I wish I had the Heart Eyes emoji on my computer keyboard right about now**

Once I got these beauties unpackaged, I couldn't wait to get them in a vase!!  The bright colors were such a beautiful sight to see against my stark-white walls :)  Just look at those colors!!!!

So, then, the next day... Blake and I just had to take pictures with them!!  Scroll to see more :)

So, here's how it works if you'd like to try this #bloominghappy subscription for yourself... They have a weekly ($43.99), or bi-weekly ($41) flower subscription, where they choose the flowers for you!!  Based on the season's offerings, they will send you gorgeous flowers with a satisfaction, money-back guarantee!!  You can check out this subscription HERE.  In my opinion, this is the best subscription for those of you that like variety!!  But they do also have a rose-only subscription for all you rose lovers out there... This one is offered on a monthly bases only, and is either $42 for 25 roses or $39 for 18-20 roses monthly!!  They come in over 130 different colors!!  Roses are so amazing to me **Insert the Heart Eyes emoji again**  You can check this subscription out HERE.  And then, maybe my absolute favorite option, actually isn't a subscription at all...  For those of you who are control freaks (like myself) they have a great section HERE where you can pick the flowers you want for yourself, as if you were standing in a floral shop in person!!  Once you purchase, they are delivered to you straight from the flower farm within 2 to 4 days!!  If you order today, that's just enough time to get them to your mom for Mother's Day!!!  **HINT, HINT** 

I really loved receiving, enjoying, and reviewing these gorgeous flowers and cool business concept!!  I've given you all the information I have, and now its just time to try it out for yourself!!  I hope you all have a fabulous rest of your week, and you'll hear from me again on Saturday!!

Love you all,


These flowers were given to me free of charge from BloosyBox, and this post was sponsored by them, but all experiences and opinions are my own!!
