In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.
Skinny jeans, a shirt or a top underneath, a topper like a blazer or a sweater, some accessory (usually a ring), sunglasses, then pair it with boots or ballet flats and you can’t go wrong.
Did you know that Wendy also launched her own e-magazine called The Frame?
Stuff new homeowners never think about is the reason why I am leaning more towards having a condo in the future rather than a house.
Even if I am paying condo fees, I’d be paying for the same maintenance in a house anyway.
Plus I’d be in a concrete home rather than one made out of chipboard where basements leak, and toilets run to the point where your entire second floor after 6 months caves in.
Just you wait, 2014 – 2016! I just may buy a condo yet!!
If you like packing and travel posts, give this one a look over because she admits that she likes to overpack (unlike me), but is only bringing one carry-on!
I am casually (CASUALLY!) looking at a pair of short leather boots like these Engineer 12R’s from Frye:
…and a pair of black boots from Frye as well (Jillian Toggle):
Or this really nice, sleek looking pair of Leona Boots from Coach, although they’re pricey at $500:
.. but they convert to booties!!!!!
Not buying any boots at all of course, but I am just looking.
Actually I should probably just ask myself this super long list of questions on how to never regret a purchase again.
Guys, you should date a female personal finance blogger… that is, if you can find any of us who are single and in your area. If you do, maybe she’ll become the breadwinner, which seems to be a growing trend happening right now in Toronto.
Or you could just have purchased Bitcoins back in 2005 for $26 on a whim and made $850,000.
Most people spend their lives looking for their dream jobs, so what happens if you decide to quit your dream job?
Or maybe, you stay in your dream job and end up finding a way to make almost a million by the age of 31.
I could do this makeup and look natural, not made up — the soft, smokey neutral eye. It would go really nicely with this braided hair look that is super easy (I suck at hairstyles.. it is either a bun, ponytail or left down):
Going to Paris any time soon? You should take a look at what to pack if you’re heading to the City of Light. From what I can see, this is the perfect Parisian wardrobe full of neutrals.
But I don’t think anyone would protest this hot red coat that I’m currently dying over, if I were to wear it over a neutral wardrobe like the one pictured above.
I’d also recommend reading Allie’s post on When Multiple Clothing Makes Sense.
I am guilty of this. I love multiples of things because I JUST KNOW no other pant or top will fit the same way.
Saving is all well and good (in fact it’s one of the foundations of growing wealthy), but don’t forget that hiding your cash under your mattress or in a “high-interest” savings account means you’re missing the other half of your wealth equation — focusing on the returns.
Personally, I don’t like to gamble and I’m a bit lazy.
If you are interested in individual stocks and Warren Buffett in particular, I suggest you read this post.
Are you ever curious how (and more importantly, why) billionaires with BILLIONS would bother to pinch pennies?
I’m pretty sure I’d be an awful billionaire.
(Merci to Rockstar Finance for alerting me to this article)
I really like the looks Angie picked from this blogger! Other than the fact that she wears heels and I’d swap them out for flats (especially if there is any hint of snow on the ground), this is definitely my kind of style.
Now to look for a turtleneck….. and a denim shirt to re-create that middle look!
Or not. Considering that there’s a dirty secret of ‘discounts’ that happens every day at retailers.
Did you ever shoplift anything as a teenager?
Some kids probably steal because they feel resentful that their parents don’t buy them anything or give them money for things like candy.. but that’s a question of education and explaining why the family doesn’t have money for those things.
I had a friend when I was young who was a shoplifter, but she learned it from another friend whom she called “the professional shoplifter”.
They knew how to pretend to yawn and reach their hands over their shoulders to avoid the metal detectors.. but it all gave me such heart palpitations that I stopped going out with them to shop.
I am in love with Steven Nederveen‘s work (images are obviously his work). Here are my two favourite pieces:
One is clearly from Monet’s Garden in Giverny, France. It is my mother’s dream to visit the garden one day (and now, mine too!)
The second is just a gorgeous water painting.
I saw him on “Candice Tells All” (a very good home design show on HGTV) and his mixed media work is stunning.
If I ever buy a place (a permanent one) I will consider buying one of his pieces.
