If there’s one thing I learned in my 45 years on this big blue marble it’s that I’m not a quitter. I learned a lot of great lessons from my father, with perhaps the most important being to never give up on your dreams. I’ve also, however, learned quite a bit from one of my heroes, Clint Eastwood, and today, a famous quote from one of his films is ringing in my ears—“A man’s got to know his limitations.”
It’s with a heavy heart that I’m giving up on my dream of winning the Horizon Goodwill Back2School Fashion challenge. It appears I just don’t have the eye for style that my competition has, including Kaitlyn. But don’t let the fact that I’m throwing in the towel deter you from claiming that iPad Mini. I’m going to give you a little peek at what you’re up against in this week’s blog. Come inside and take a look! [Read more…] about Hurry! Your Chance To Win An iPad Mini Ends Sept. 4th
Hey all! Last week I shared with everyone the incredible challenge Horizon Goodwill threw out there with the Grand Prize being an iPad Mini. It’s no secret, I want that prize, and I told my wife and daughter all about my plan to win it over dinner the other night. As a dad and a husband, I’m used to sacrificing for my family. Sometimes it’s little things like being forced to watch “Frozen” for the twentieth time when the Pirates are taking a shutout into the 9th, or having to muster up a smile when Missy makes vegetarian hot dogs (yes, there is such a product…and they taste just how you would expect).
You would think by now I would know when to keep my personal plans, well, personal. This whole Back2School Fashion Challenge is quickly turning into my own personal Waterloo. Allow me to explain… [Read more…] about Did You Accept The Challenge? An iPad Mini Is In The Balance!
Free Prizes. Back To School. Baseball. Those are just a few of my favorite things. As for my least favorite things, well, maybe I’ll share those at the end of the blog. Anyway, let’s stay focused on the positive, what do you say?
Contests are a really intriguing concept. I’m not quite sure if it’s the thrill of competition, the ability [Read more…] about Win An iPad Mini—Enter The HGI Back 2 School Fashion Challenge!
Attention fellow thrifters! We classify thrifting as an art; you must have a good eye and a key sense of fashion to find a fabulous diamond in the rough. Goodwill’s racks and shelves are packed with treasures so we decided to give ourselves a challenge. We went searching for the celebrity looks below at various Horizon Goodwill retail stores to find “celebrity looks-for-less” at an even “thriftier” price than what is listed in those fashion magazines. We had so much fun putting these looks together! We live for a good deal and an exciting treasure hunt. Goodwill is always full of great surprises that are both unique and thrifty! Check out the deals we scored on these pricey celebrity look-a-like fashions!
Eva Longoria sported this simple look – We matched it with Goodwill finds for only $24! The white skinny jeans were Tommy Hilfiger – brand new with tags, and a steal at $8!
Reese Witherspoon rocked this classic blue and white look but we managed to copy it with Goodwill finds for a shocking $17! We loved the vintage gold necklace we found to accessorize this ensemble – (might be even better than the one pictured!)
Olivia Palermo is known for her sense of style on MTV’s “The City”, that’s why I couldn’t resist copying her look in this blog entry. We were able to find her look at Goodwill for only $18! Check it out.
Demi Lavato is not only making music but she is setting style trends everyday. Get style ready with this trendy look-for-less. We managed to put together Demi’s look for a mere $17!
Want to put together a look-for-less? We would love to see it! Just upload your photo to Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest with the hashtag #GoodLook4Less and show us your style savings!
