Thrifty Thursday- 4th of July!

If you’re in a time crunch for a cute festive 4th of July outfit, make sure you go check out your local thrift stores! Be creative with your outfits, because you never know what you can put together!

I am so excited that my first Thirfty Thursday in a while is my 4th of July look! While thrifting at the Goodwill in Crofton, Md. I was looking for simple pieces that would look spectacular together, and here is the outfit that I put together!

Happy Birthday, Defining Danie!

DD Bday fav

I cannot believe it is already’s birthday. This first year of blogging has been unimaginable. Defining Danie has opened so many doors and friendships, that I could not imagine not having anymore. I really would like to thank everyone who has supported me through this first year. Thank you for every share, like and follow!

I have definitely learned so much about blogging and about myself through this year-long journey. I cannot wait to see what is next on my journey of the online world! Who knows? If there is anything new that you would love to see on Defining Danie, you have to let me know!


The number one thing that I think has improved since my first post is my use of exclamation points, haha! (Whoops, I guess that was necessary though…) I think that I was so excited when I first started that I thought that everything just HAD to have one.

Make sure you’re connected at all times!


The Summer of a Lifetime

The end of this school year was the most stressful time of my life! This semester I had six group projects. Yes, you read that correctly!


This summer is going to be one for the books! I have so many plans for this summer.


As a part of of one of my classes, Global Advertising and Public Relations, I get to study abroad! This Thursday, I leave to go to Dublin and London. All semester, my amazing group and I worked on our website to compare the humor between America and Dublin/London. It was really fun!

For two weeks, I will have the opportunity to travel these two amazing cities, and visit some pretty well-known PR and Ad agencies. I am so excited!  Continue reading

Thrifty Thursday: My Apartment!

After countless hours of moving in these past two days… I am DONE moving in! Now, its time for the DECORATING! I cannot wait for the next couple weeks to thrift all of my decorations. So, let’s start this! I found these awesome plates! They remind me of a Mexican Fiesta! Ha! The colors are just so bright and fun. I bought SO many of them. The picture of the pink, yellow and blue plates are smaller ones that could be used for salad! I bought 6 of the small ones. The picture of the pink and blue ones are dinner plates. I am so sad that they did not have any of the yellow ones in the bigger plates but, I’m so happy that they did have the pink and blue! I bought 7 of them. Guess how much I bought 13 plates for? Also, they are glass! They are not plastic, I know they kind of look plastic-y in my pictures. I bought them for $8.76 cents! Also, because I am a student, I got 10% off at my Goodwill near school! I asked the Goodwill about their different sales that they have and everyday I go there, I can get the 10% off discount. I am thrilled! 

Next, the purple toaster! I have to admit that I did not buy this in a thrift store… I bought it at Walmart. (Close enough, right? haha) But, I bought it at such a good price! I bought this toaster which is originally around $25 for $11! I think the purple is going to look so pretty with all of the decorations that I am putting up! P.S. keep your eyes on the lookout for my post about my decorations that I am putting up within these next few days. I am so excited! The other thing that I wanted to share with you guys is how I am actually using some of my past Thrifty Thursday products that I bought! You can see my famous yellow-green glass container! I bought these about a month ago, especially for my apartment. For a few of the containers, my dad actually came up with the idea of storing my K-Cups in them for my Keurig! Which of course I thought was ADORABLE. I am also using 2 of them for my makeup brushes!

Before I end my post, I just wanted to thank everyone with the support that I am receiving from all of you! Thank you to everyone who has told me they are avid readers and to everyone who has given my amazing compliments about my posts! I am so happy to hear that you are loving my posts, just as much as I LOVE posting them! 


Danie 🙂
