In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.
What I liked this week:
- Meryl Streep wanted to give it her all in one of my favourite movies: The Devil Wears Prada for very strong feminist reasons. I completely agree.
- This perforated jacket is so cool, stylish and 30% off.
- This is such a weiiiiiird clothing line. I don’t get Vetements at all. This makes money!?
- Love this striped midi shirtdress. It is so stylish and cool. This one is way more fun and summery.
- Don’t give up meat & dairy completely. Just eat less of it. Even Cameron of Avatar fame and the Guvernator want you to do it. I don’t give up meat or dairy completely by any stretch of the imagination but I do eat much less of it. Meat doesn’t make you stronger because of its protein, beans have more protein than meat. I could go on and on but the main message is that it also hurts the environment.
- I am obviously still really after a really great waxed field jacket like this stylish one.
- This is why Chinatown has the cheapest food. Ironically with this whole locavore movement where you eat as local as possible, it is being done right under our noses & no one has acknowledged it; instead the prices have all been jacked up instead.
- These jeans are extremely comfortable and feel like pajamas. Honestly.
- I appreciated Tim taking the time to break down how he planned on living off his investments in Canada, as he is planning on retiring early. I had a similar plan for the vague future: dividends in my TFSA, dividends in my Margin account (taxed less than earned income here) & then withdraw slowly on my RRSP.
- This red purse is gorgeous and so unlike the brand… I just wish it wasn’t so expensive.
- While I agree that travel is a privilege for many, maybe it’s the PF’er in me but the cost of traveling is not as expensive as one might imagine if you are willing to make a few sacrifices as compared to the past when it was near unimaginable for anyone but the filthy rich. I don’t know anyone’s specific situation but I do believe that everyone CAN afford to travel; it just depends to where, with how many, for how long, your standards, & when you want to go. A train ticket is under $100, buses are $50. That’s the price of cable TV here in Canada, or even a cell plan per month. Then hit up Air B&B, etc.
- The PERFECT ivory shirtdress.
- To each their own (for religion & culture), as long as we don’t harm each other, and the environment. H/T to Revanche.
- This suede tassel belt is gorgeous and such an interesting.
