Explore The Alley at Belleair Bluffs!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of The Alley at Belleair Bluffs; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.  Please see my disclosure policy)

I recently had the amazing opportunity to explore The Alley at Belleair Bluffs here in the Tampa Bay area with my friend Marsha from Plate Girl. Located at 596 Indian Rocks Road in Belleair Bluffs, FL, this hidden gem is home to many cute, yet quaint stores that are filled with vintage and eclectic pieces as well as clothing and even delicious food options.

I actually visited this past Saturday, November 30, which was Shop Small Saturday. What fun it was for me as we toured some of the stores, and to hear from each owner as to how they began their business. It is evident to me that each owner really understands their business and takes pride in what they are doing! Everyone was so friendly and made me feel welcome!

We began our tour of The Alley at The Astoria Pastry Shop. This European Bakery has everything from homemade pastries to custom cakes, and they serve delicious ILLY coffee. We had the most delicious cappucinos and sweet treat that helped us get our day off to a great start! The Astoria Pastry Shop is so charming, and they offer both indoor and outdoor seating. It is the perfect stop for coffee with a friend, or you can pick up treats for the go!

Our next stop along the way was Petal and Vine Garden & Marketplace. This store offers exquisite floral arrangements, delectables and unique gifts. There are gift ideas for everyone on your gift list! I especially loved meeting Petals the Deer! This deer is a staple at Petal and Vine and they had him all decorated for the Christmas holidays! Whether you need fresh flowers, a gift for a friend, or a few new items to spruce up your space, be sure to check out Petal and Vine Garden & Marketplace!

Our next stop along the way was Victoria’s Parlour. This shop is unlike any that you have ever been to before and offers everything from paintings, jewelry, oriental rugs, buttons and so much more! The owner, Victoria, has a great love for oriental rugs. In fact, both her parents and grandparents were in the rug business! She has many photos of her family from years gone by showcasing their love of the rug business. Victoria also takes great pride in her button collection. You would not believe the collection of buttons that she has! I highly suggest that you stop by Victoria’s Parlour to see what goodies that she has to offer!

 

After Victoria’s Parlour, we headed over to Lemon Tree Vintage Market. This adorable store offers refreshed and repurposed furniture, the cutest home decor, gifts, clothing and more! I love all the cute lemon pieces! If you need a gift for that hard-to-buy for person, be sure to check out Lemon Tree Vintage Market. They offer something for everyone!

 

I thoroughly enjoyed our next visit along the way at Jewel Antique Mall. This mall houses over 10,000 square feet of antiques, collectibles and treasures from over 30 dealers! If you have been searching for that special something, chances are that Jewell Antique Mall has it!

We also stopped along the way to check out Reloved Resale Consignment and Shabby 2 Chic. If you are into vintage clothing, jewelry and shoes, then Reloved Resale Consignment is sure to be your new favorite stop! In addition, they offer new and designer items as well. I found a gorgeous Talbots Black Velvet Blazer on the clearance rack for $1! I also scored from the 50% off sale and purchased a brown leather Coldwater Creek jacket for only $12! If you have unwanted clothing and shoes, you can drop it off here and they will consign your items for you!

Shabby 2 Chic is such a wonderful store and I love their mission! They support single moms through Shepherd’s Village with all of the donations and items that they receive. They have the cutest designer clothing and shoes at unbeatable prices!

After all of the walking around, we needed a snack and drink so we headed to Belleair Market. Belleair Market is an establishment in the area and they are known for their selection of cigars, wines, Cuban sandwiches, snacks and so much more. The owners bought this an old convenience store six years ago, and it is now a favorite stop for so many in Belleair. I love how they take Cigar Boxes and repurpose them into gift boxes! They also offer homemade family meals like meatloaf and goulash for those nights you don’t have time to cook, as well as WonderRoast Fresh Rotisserie Chicken (one of the only left in the area) and fully catered meals for holidays or special gatherings. Belleair Market has it all! I had a delicious chicken salad sandwich made from their fresh rotisserie chicken and it was so delicious! 

Our last stop along the way was at Pallet Creations and More. This is the home to the She Shed and my friend Marsha’s space, Plate Girl. They offer stunning pieces of repurposed furniture, home decor, collectibles and more. Marsha’s space at Plate Girl is filled with plates, glassware and so many other collections. She definitely has an eye for finding gorgeous and unique pieces. Be sure to stop by and check out all the gift and home decor ideas!

No stop to The Alley at Belleair Bluffs is complete without a visit to Provence Art & Antiques. This space specializes in antique furniture, vintage accessories and creatively repurposed artisanal pieces. The garden out back is stunning. I felt like I was in a Hallmark Movie as everything was so lovely and quaint! The owner even grows fresh rosemary out front, and she was kind enough to give both Marsha and I some. It smells heavenly!

Some other shops that we did not have time to visit in The Alley are: Urban Nest Stationary, Orchid Interiors, Kay Keeling’s Art Adventure, Collum’s Antiques, Chloe’s Decor, Lady Angelo’s Art and Jewel Cafe. I will definitely be going back to explore these places for myself! 

Are you ready to go and check out The Alley at Belleair Bluffs for yourself? I have some exciting news! This Friday night, December 6, from 5-9pm, they are hosting a Winter Market! There will be vendors, live entertainment and holiday specials! Pile the family in the car and head over for a fun evening, and get some holiday shopping done while you are at it! Be sure to let them know that Heather from My Sweet Savings sent you! 

Tips for a Budget-Friendly Holiday

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

A warm welcome to WTSP viewers! I am so glad to have you here at My Sweet Savings! A huge thank you to Jenny Dean for the feature! During the Good To Know segment, we discussed tips for a budget-friendly holiday, so I thought that it would be helpful to list those for you right here on the blog for reference.

Did you know that the average American spends around $1000 on gifts during the holidays?  But, many people don’t budget that amount and often go into debt. This can take up to 6 months to pay off! One of the main reasons that people go into debt is because they don’t plan ahead.

Set a budget and stick to it! Plan how much that you spend for each person and don’t go over. Set expectations and stay with them! One tip is to use cash and the envelope system. This allows you to delegate each person in the family their own envelope. Each envelope will have your set amount of cash for each person and will help you to not overspend. You can also use the envelope to keep track of each person’s receipts and rebates if applicable.

Ask yourself: “Who am I shopping for?”

How much do I want to spend for each person on my list?”

“What is my total gift budget?”

Use coupons and money-saving apps. Sign up to your favorite retailers email lists for coupon and special promotional offers. Many times they will send you coupons that you can’t find elsewhere. I also love the app Retail Me Not as it will show you coupons and coupon codes to use when shopping in-store and online.

Buy gifts online. Purchasing online allows you to buy only those things that you are searching for and not to make impulse purchases. Also, many stores are offering free shipping right now so you don’t even have to go to the store. Consider adding items to your cart now. Log out and then come back a few days later. Many companies will email you a discount to complete your checkout.

Buy discounted gift cards to help lower your holiday budget– Use online sites like Raise.com that offers discounted gift cards. Sam’s Club and BJ’s offer gift card discounts year round. Even the drug stores will offer promotional gift card discounts. A gift card is just another form of payment. You can really get some great deals when you stack the discounted gift card with coupons and promotions to your favorite stores.

Credit Card purchases– If using credit cards, use one that will give you cash or rewards back. If you are going to purchase items you might as well get something back in return. You might be surprised at how quickly these rewards will add u and some cards will even offer incentives during the holidays. Store cards such as the Target Red Debit and Credit card give you 5% off your purchases as well, so this can be helpful to get the most bang for your buck! Also, be sure to check and see if you have available rewards points to use right now for your holiday purchases. Through December 12, Target is offering a store coupon to save $40 off your purchase of $40 or more when you sign up for the Target REDcard!

Don’t overlook the dollar and discount stores– The Dollar stores and discount stores (like Five Below) offer name brand items that you may be surprised to find. Create a gift basket around family or friend’s favorite things. (Coffee, Cheese, Sports, etc…) I also love to utilize the dollar stores for my wrapping paper, gift bags and holiday cards. Their selection is fabulous and you can’t beat the price!

Photo Gifts– I find that photo gifts are always the most received of any of the gifts that I give. The drugstores often offer majorly discounted deals on these items. You can often get a Free 8X10 photo print. I like to add a nice frame from Michaels or Hobby Lobby that I bought with a 50% off coupon, and voila you have a beautiful and affordable gift idea.

Be Creative– Make gift baskets with items that you already have or from items that you got on sale throughout the year. I have made some fantastic gift baskets for friends and family with items that I scored on sale during the year. When I find sales on items I stock up during the year as my budget allows. This way at Christmas I am not going to break my budget trying to find gift items.

The Four Gift Plan for Kids– Consider buying the kids just 4 gifts this year. Something they need, something to read, something to wear and something that they want. This plan will really will help to keep your budget on track!

Wrap your gift in a gift– You can make a loaf of your favorite bread or muffins and wrap in a cute towel. Wrap a set of sheets and put in a pillowcase with a big bow. Place a bag of coffee or coffee gift card in a coffee cup. The options are endless!

Have fun! Having a holiday budget is important, but remember to cherish that moments that you have with your family and friends. Don’t stress out! You will remember the memories more than any item that you purchase. If you stick to your budget you will have extra reason to celebrate!

Olive + M: Clean Skincare that Works!

Disclosure: I received products from Olive + M to help facilitate this review. (All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

I was recently given the opportunity to try products from the Olive + M line and was so excited to do so! Let me first tell you that I love their mission. They were created from the belief that what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body. To me, that is so important! Olive + M believes in being radiant by nature. 

Now, I have to be honest with you, I was a bit skeptical at first since I knew that these products were oil-based. My skin tends to be on the oily side at times during the summer months, so I was afraid that these products would make them even more oily. Boy, was I wrong! Even though all of the Olive + M products are olive oil-based products that contain natural, plant-based ingredients, these factors all help to create a brighter complexion while diminishing those fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, they help to protect against environmental stressors like pollution, and they even help to fight acne and unwanted bacteria. 

Olive + M Cleansing Oil– This oil dissolves dirt and bacteria on your face while nourishing your skin with a natural blend of antioxidants, vitamins, omegas and amino acids. I also love how it smells! It is filled with the aroma of warm, fresh floral and herbal notes with an airy citrus finish.

One of the things that I noticed right away with the cleansing oil was just how much impurities that it removed. It really does a fantastic job of getting rid of makeup and all of the buildup from each day, without much effort on your part. 

Olive + M Face Oil– I know what you are probably thinking, you are going to moisturize your skin with face oil? That was my reaction at first as well, but let me tell you, this product is amazing! In fact, Olive + M Face Oil is their number one best seller! To me, that says a lot about a product! This Face Oil is light, natural formula is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, omegas and amino acids, and it leaves your complexion soft and glowing. In addition, it also smells so divine!  It is full of rich notes of a blend of green, floral notes and light woody facets with aromatic, minty touches. I really love how this product makes my face feel. It is not oily or greasy and dries to a nice dewy appearance. If you try one product from Olive + M, I highly recommend that you give this one a try! 

Olive + M Body Oil– Who doesn’t love a good body oil? This one from Olive + M is fantastic! Olive + M Body Oil is a concentrated blend of pink grapefruit, bergamot and clary sage. Yes, it smells heavenly! I like to apply Olive + M Body Oil right after I get out of the shower. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and moisturized. You can even apply a few drops in a hot bath if you prefer. I haven’t tried that yet, but plan to very soon! 

In addition to ordering from Olive + M directly on their website, I am so happy to tell you that Olive + M is now available at your local Target! The next time that you are there, be sure to take a look at the products for yourself. I am certain that you will love them as much as I have!

My FASTer Way to Fat Loss Update

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

                                                           BEFORE                                             NOW

It has been a little while since I have given you an update on my FASTer Way to Fat Loss, so I thought that this would be a good time to do so! I think that the results in the picture above speak for themselves, don’t you? You can see my previous posts HERE and HERE.

If you have been following me from the beginning, you will remember that I started my first round back at the end of June. Since then I have lost 24 inches and over 12 pounds. I have never felt better in my life, while eating more food than I ever thought possible. I love working out and planning the next day’s meals. The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is a lifestyle change it is not a diet. If you are tired of yo-yo dieting, counting calories, and every other gimmick on the market, this program is for you! If I can do it, anyone can do it! I was so tired of looking in the mirror and not liking the picture. I was tired of being stuck in a rut. I was tired of not having confidence in how I looked. I am so glad that I took this journey and I don’t plan on looking back! I still have more goals to crush and I know that I will get there!

YOU are worth the investment. Your husband and children are worth the investment. Self Care is so important and when we realize that, it makes a huge difference! Give yourself the gift of a new you. You will gain such confidence that you never thought possible all while seeing crazy awesome results!

Since my initial round, I have been sticking to the program on my own and still seeing some amazing results! In fact, of the 24 inches that I have lost 10 have been after my round! I am still a work in progress, and can’t wait to see even more results! Remember, it is all about progress over perfection!

It’s not hard and you don’t have to be perfect. ⁠You won’t starve or restrict foods or spend hours in the gym. It is all in the program! I am satisfied and feel full and I don’t crave sugars or junk food. Do I still splurge? Yes, Do I still enjoy treats? Yes, it is all about learning to fuel your body with the right types of foods. One good thing to remember is Memories over Macros. Enjoy those parties and family get togethers with no guilt. 

My coach Stephanie is amazing and will be there to help you every step of the way! And, she has a new round starting this Monday September 23! It will probably be her last round before the holiday, so get in shape now and enjoy the holidays without feeling guilty.

GO HERE to check out the FASTer Way to Fat Loss and to sign up for the round that begins September 23. If you have any questions, please email me at: mysweetsavings@gmail.com
