In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.
This is awesome. A couple babysits for another, and they photoshopped a few scenarios…
I’m really not a fan of Michael Kors. I know everyone loves his bags and I see them ALL. THE. TIME., but it’s not a brand I connect with even though I like his style philosophy.
So it’s interesting to read about how he has brought luxury to the masses and how it’s probably hurting its brand (it is for me, anyway). For me, Michael Kors is a cheap brand, on par with Coach.
It’s a bit like Louis Vuitton for me — overexposed is the word.

Once we move into a more permanent but still small apartment or condo, I am SO SOOOOOO reading this and my own herbs in a tiny space.
I am putting Rosemary, Basil and Sage on the list. I could eat those three like no tomorrow.
By the way, the average American social security payment for retirees is $1,294 a month, or more than our CPP and OAS combined.
Houses there cost 50% less and retirees have universal health care.
Mortgages are fixed (no rate increases) for 30 years, plus people who retire with one can deduct both the loan interest and property taxes from their taxable income.
So why did I get a nasty comment a while back about how I was “set for life” in retirement in Canada from an American?
I’m a feminist..
And if you think women should be treated equally (for better or for worse with no special perks), then you are a feminist too.
What a lovely thing to do for sick children.
Can you really heat a town with an ocean? It’s happening in the Netherlands.
Oceans take in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which helps to moderate temperatures, and they also emit heat from the sunlight they absorb.
The process is similar to the circulatory system in a person’s body.
Blood gets oxygen from the heart and then delivers it through the body, returning de-oxygenated blood to the heart to start the process all over again.
Likewise, the water in the pipes that services the neighborhood is heated at the central facility and then runs through town distributing heat and eventually loops back to the power plant to be heated up once again.
<3 me some Kristen Bell especially when she nails it in this video about minimum wage in America:
That, perfect, minimalist multi-billion dollar Nike swoosh was created for a mere $35 by Carolyn Davidson.
“Well, I don’t love it,” Phil Knight said at the time, “but maybe it will grow on me.”
This is so cute, I’m squealing. This father dresses his kids up and photographs them.
I agree with a lot of these style confessions. I have similar regrets!
Good food for thought from Donna Freedman about how wealthy people think you can live on less.
Thanks to NZ Muse for the link.
4 people. One piano. Epic.
I like reading about people experiencing different cultures for the first time, and Vanessa’s post on South Korea is very interesting.
I am curious (and excited) enough to want to watch this comedy when it airs.
I love it when animals act like humans!
Or when humans love animals. *sniffle* Don’t watch this at work.
I repeat: DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO AT WORK.
Well that makes sense. With a name and notoriety like hers, she could sell Paris Hilton endorsed dog crap and make a fortune.
Frankly, I think this 77-year old DJ deserves more money and respect than PH.
