Changing up the traditional wedding kimono to be a strapless dress instead is very pretty, but I prefer the traditional one. I own a couple of vintage kimonos (I collected a few), and I have one that I would love to test this out on…. as a fancy dress option ūüėČ H/T to The Asian Pear.

Millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have paid my $600K home in cash (my half was $300K), my $180K casr in cash, worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    The BBC interview is very on-point. In my office, the men who “had to” come in late or “had to” leave early for family were practically revered by the bosses (all men) while the women, who rarely asked for anything, got punished severely when they did. At the time, I was single and childless and protested about the double standard (as a disinterested childless person), but to no avail. It still make me mad, years later. And nothing has changed in the meantime.

      It drives me crazy, this double standard. It’s why I now ask my partner to take more time off work so that I don’t have to.
