About Denverista

Growing up, my grandmother taught me the value of a dollar. However, somewhere along the way I forgot about or choose to ignore it. I am a SAHM of two of the cutest brats and a wife to the most handsome guy in the world. I am remembering and learning how to stretch my dollars more than my grandmother taught me. I guess it is different when it is your money, lol. I love knowing that I am able to provide many wonderful items for my family, without exceeding our budget. Also, knowing how much money I am actually saving while still living a wonderful and adventurous life in beautiful Colorado. I look forward to helping you Stretch Your $'s Mile High! Best Regards & Warmest Wishes! Misty

Bloggers Brags Weekly Pinterest Party ~ Week 77

Bloggers Brags logo

Welcome to the Bloggers Brags Weekly Pinterest Party!  I hope you had a good week and I can’t wait to read what you blogged about this week.  Last week I shared a story about my daughter building a duck pond because of all the rain we’ve been getting.  Believe it or not, two ducks actually showed up!  She was over the moon happy about that.  Meanwhile, I couldn’t believe that they actually showed up.  Now, I am a little worried about what she will build next.  


Amara Organics Hyaluronic Acid Serum Review

I received a free bottle of Amara Organics Hyaluronic Acid Serum to review and shall share my thoughts with you on the product.  

Maybe it is because I am getting older but still am not ready to admit that I am.  But I am starting to look and feel run down and my face is showing it.  So I whole heartedly agreed to try Amara Organics Hyaluronic Acid Serum to try it out and see if it made a difference or if it was one of those products that notoriously promises to yield so and so results and the only result that I see is the lack of funds in my bank account and nothing else.  I have to say that I was very impressed with the results.   (more…)

Welcome back to another awesome week at Bloggers Brags Weekly Pinterest Party!  I hope you have been great and dry.  In Texas, we have been dealing with rain, lots of it!  My daughter has started digging for a duck pond with all the mud in our backyard.  I think any day now, the ducks will come and take up residence in it.  Just for her.

Decorate Your Life With Minted.com

I love supporting local artists and designers!  That is why I love Minted.  It is a wonderful online boutique of amazing artists from all over the world.  They have so many beautiful items for sale on their site from, amazing stationary, fun party supplies, unique fabrics and beautiful art pieces for every room in your house.

Now that we are set up in the new house in Dallas, Texas I need to decorate my space.  My craft room is mostly unpacked and sorta functional.  But I still don’t have any art work hung up on the walls.  I need to glamp up my space to make it reflect me and give me ambition and open up my inner creativity.  That’s why I fell in love with Minted.Com site.   (more…)

Glamping Must Haves for Under $25

Per FTC rules I have to disclose that these are affiliate links. If you purchase an item, I make a small commission. But don’t worry, it’s not like I am going to get rich and quit blogging. It is a very small commission. But I appreciate it. A Lot! Please feel free to buy one or two of everything.  Lol.

I have a new obsession!  One that my husband will actually be pleased to hear about.  Glamping!  But I should be clear that my idea of glamping is not the pretty tent kind, more the pretty cute travel trailer kind of glamping.  I want a travel trailer!  I have visions of family weekend outings where we reconnect with no electronical devices other than an iPod for music playing in the background, playing the toddler rules of board games (which the rules seem to change every game) and lastly going for nature walks and exploring new surroundings as a family.  Cross your fingers for me that my pretty fantasy doesn’t turn into an ugly nightmare.   (more…)
