Future Business Investments and Other Things

So I have had this list made out for some time now, but I figured why not share it? This is a list of many things I would like/will be purchasing in the next 4-6 months. Hope you enjoy! 
(Everything is listed in order of what I will purchase first in each category.) 

Things For My Photography Business
I have been planning on working completely from home when it comes to my photography. I want to shoot, edit, print, cut, and package at the comfort at my home. It works so much more easier and faster. I also make a better profit. 

I need one of these so bad for both my computers (Macbook Pro & iMac)! I have been so beyond frustrated with color correcting photos only for them to be wrong when I send them to the print labs and have to pay a nice little bundle for the lab to fix the pictures. It's going to be great to finally have my own (I previously borrowed it from my school) and Calibrate my monitors before major photo jobs.

My own large format printer...ahh! I am seriously so extremely excited to purchase this! I am beyond tired of sending my work to a photo lab. Having my own printer will cut down print and delivery time. I can print them as soon as i'm done editing the final order, cut, and package prints in 3 hours then deliver the next day. It saves time and saves a lot of money! I'd make a 80% profit from each print order while the other 20% goes back into supplies.  

I have a backdrop support system but I got it really cheap and I need a more sturdier option. The one I have currently only extends 6ft, it's great for children but only children. This will be great for everything! I don't really need the light stands, I have several already but not all of them are great. I'm pretty excited for the carrying bags though. ;)

It's time for a new one, I've already filled one of these boys up! So much of my school work is on there, I can't delete any of it. So it's just time to buy a new one and start fresh. 

3-pk $329.00
I love and trust only this brand only when it comes to securing my equipment. I just need some more 12ft light stands. 

I'm weird I really want this bag because it goes with the light stands. haha


I love this paper cutter! It is seriously the absolute best and takes less than 10 seconds to make precise cuts. Which makes cutting pictures that much more easier. 

8.) Canon 6D

It's time for a new camera body, I don't plan I getting this right away but its something i'm looking into heavily possibly around summer time. 

Things For My Dog Maverick
I own a Great Pyrenees and these things are most needed!

If you have a dog with long hair, you need this in your life. It really does wonders! I need to have one for home.

This combo works great together, I hope it works just as good in the winter as it does in the spring.

3.) 4Knines
Basically everything on my doggy list is for shedding! If you have never heard of Great Pyrenees please google them. I like to take my Pyr on many car rides and have hair EVERYWHERE! One of these covers will help with that hair problem and the frequent dirt he gets on the seat. 

Things for Myself
These are things that I would love to treat myself to before my big girl bills start rolling in after January. Yes some are very, very luxurious but I believe a girls got to treat herself to something nice every now and then. 

I need a new winter jacket. I have a really nice Peacoat but again I have shedder of a dog and the wool is a magnet to the hair.

I've been looking for a new wallet/clutch and I found one! I have 2 little coin wallets from fossil that my grandma gave me and she used them for a really long time. They have great quality and I know this will last me for years to come. 

3.) Michael Kors Large Selma Satchel

I change purses so much, but I have been wanting nice quality bag. Something I wouldn't want to change every other week and something that I can wear anywhere.


Sterling Silver 18" Chain
This and the bracelet is actually going to be my late graduating present, I was suppose to get it last year but never got to it.

6.) X-cess Bedroom set
-Chest of Drawers $349.99
I'm way overdue for new furniture. I'm having my whole room redone so this set is perfect! 
I still have to pick out a mattress but I have no idea where to begin. haha

All these things will be purchased within time, some might not even be purchased. I know I will be for sure purchasing the bed set and almost all off the stuff for my photography business. But this is just a list not a layaway sales receipt. haha

Black Friday Shopping Goals

Hey Everyone,

I know, I know it is too soon to be thinking about Black Friday! but I am so deal with it! haha but seriously I love shopping on Black Thursday/Friday. This year I won't be able to shop on Friday but I am going to do my best to get all the deals that I can on Thursday. I already made a list of things I am hoping to see on Thursday. I will obviously update this list when I get ahold of all the ads,  I usually go to 3 places Target, Victoria Secret, and Walmart. I am hoping to also hit a few other stores too. 

1.) Keurig 2.0 K300 or K400
I need me a new Keurig, I used my cousins when he lived with me and I have been having keurig withrdrawls now that it is getting cold. Usually target will knock off $15-$25 on original price and then offer a $25 gift card. (Which I probably will spend on a travel mug which is this one as well as a contraption that allowing you to brew your own coffee for my dad.) They also usually offer k cups for $9.99 but I like certain ones that you can only get on the keurig website. 

2.) Comfy Snow Boots!

I would really like the tall ones, but i'm not sure these will be the ones on sale. 
So if they aren't...

I would like the short ones. I like buying the boots from target because I live in Chicago, the weather is crazy! I don't feel like buying $100+ Uggs only to worry about ruining them and never wearing them on the days they need to be worn. So I spend $25-$40 on target brand, which are great boots. Usually on Black Friday they will be on sale for $15-$25 depending on the brand. 

3.) Glee Season 5
Glee Season 6
I would love to finish my Dvd Collection for Glee. Target usually has a variety of seasons for $9.99
I hope to find these two on sale. 

4.) New Girl Season 3
New Girl Season 4
I still need to purchase season 1 & 2 but the both are always on sale for $9.99 so my goals are for the ones that aren't on sale typically.

5.) American Horror Story
& Freak Show
I've been debating if I wanted to own these 3 seasons being that the first season still remains my favorite so far; but I just re-watched season 2 and it now is one of my favorites. So I will eventually buy the rest and hoping I can strike a deal on Black Friday somewhere. 

6.) Pretty Little Liars 
Season 5
I always buy pretty little liars season dvds on Black friday, its such a great purchase comparing how much they are typically. 

I know thats a whole lot of season dvd's but they are just my goals, I know not all of them will be on sale. If they were I wouldn't buy all of them but my main goals will be pretty little liars, glee, and new girl. I know between Target and Walmart I can find the ones I really want. :)

On to Another Store

Victoria Secret
7.) Body by V.S Bras
They have always had the Buy one get one 50% off I'm becoming a little tired of their 2/$49.50 bras so this will be the time to upgrade. haha

8.) Perfumes
I'm hoping they will have some sort of deals on their perfumes or perfume sets. 
If they do I'll be on the look out for these two:

Eau So Sexy


And the list is to be continued.......

Check back in the beginning of November! :)
