I’m Back!

After a six month hiatus from blogging and social media, I’m back!!

In January 2013 at age 51, I started a blog all about thrifted fashion called whosaprettygirl. In December 2016 I hit the DELETE button…and four years of blogging was gone like that! #FingerSnap

I was totally burnt out, stressed out and felt like I was living every minute on Social Media instead of just living my life.


Now I’m back!

#DidAnyoneEven Miss Me

I’m still all about that thrift life BUT great deals are everywhere, not just at your local thrift store. This time around I will be sharing my tips on how to save money no matter where you shop!

I’m also a lover of makeup…High-end AND drugstore. If you have been to my house, you know how much makeup I have.


I’ll be sharing some of my favorite items with you.


So, before we start on this new journey together, let me catch you up to speed on the past six months!


Started living my life




I starred as Alice Fairweather, the young, beautiful heroine in Sun City Summerlin’s Community Theatre production of  “Manhattan Melodrama”.

No worries, I didn’t die. 😉



I won a twitter contest

and hung out with these guys!

Dancing with the Stars

OMG, they are even MORE gorgeous in person…and so nice, too!!



I discovered that I’m really good at marketing/promoting and got the Sun City Dance Company Las Vegas on the cover of the Link Magazine!

Sold out our tap show, “Ticket to Broadway”. My goal was to sell 1200 seats and I exceeded my goal by FIVE seats! #1205

Thought I would share some photos of my class from the tap show. The Starlight Belles are a great group of ladies!

  1. Yes-you were missed! Looking forward to seeing what you have in store for the new blog. Long time follower and still trying to control my thrifting addiction.

  2. Welcome back! I just came back as well. Mainly because I missed the community. Blogging will never be a source of income for me. I can’t handle all of the constant marketing that it requires. You’re right, you could end up on social media 24/7. But, it is a great creative outlet. 🙂

  3. SO glad you’re back!!! I Looked everywhere but I figured that you must have needed a well deserved break. It’s important to realize when it’s time to take care of ourselves and do something different. Good for you! Looking forward to more fun posts.

  4. Hi,
    I missed you! A LOT! I did not know you stopped blogging. I thought you cut me off. I don’t know why I thought that. Thank you for coming back. I will follow you again.
