In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.
You know, I’ve always felt that in some ways, life really was easier in the past before there was easy credit.
Maybe if we had less access to easy credit it would be so easy to spend $15,000 – $20,000 on beauty services and products per year, or maybe it’s all of our faults as bloggers (guilty as charged!) for enabling people to spend.
And I thought my current $1700 for 2013 (until end of October 2013 for makeup, toiletries and spa/grooming) was bad….
Instead, you could just take one of these 5 steps to increase your net worth by $25,000 a year while earning $50,000.
Think it’s not possible? Then you should read the logistics on how it’s done. It’s not easy but it is doable.
You know, I can’t REALLY believe that smokin’ hot 28-year old Bar Rafaeli can’t land a boyfriend.
That’s just.. crazy talk. Unless she’s some sort of closeted weirdo.
There’s something a little off.. or maybe men are just too intimidated to ask her out and she doesn’t mix in “normal” circles of non-celebrity and non-Hollywood friends.
Or maybe this is a Marilyn Monroe complex where after the mystique wears off, she’s just a normal, super tall, super hot girl with flaws like everyone else.
Belle of Capitol Hill Style gives you the basics of building a dress wardrobe for work. Every item on that list? CHECK. I’m a dress fiend.
So really, if this Chrysanthemum dress was not made in China by Pink Tartan, I’d seriously consider buying it because of its sheer beauty.
Or if I were a guy, this $20,000 bullet-and-knife-proof suit.
Have you ever thought about how long you want to live?
Apparently what you eat and what you do has very little to do with it, it’s more your genes and then your happiness level (or lifestyle) that determine how long you live.
I have had an unhealthy obsession as of late of wanting to design and make my own clothes. I can’t ever find anything I like on the rack, and this frustration makes me want to learn how to sew.
So when I saw this amazing DIY midi circle skirt, I gasped..
You could also style this skirt EXACTLY like Blair did, although her skirt was not DIY.
You might also want to take a look at this guide to making sure that your clothes fit the way that they should.
I tell this to myself all the time these days because there are sometimes better things to do.
Or learning how to tie my scarf in a new way.
I love Banksy’s work. He’s taken over NYC now.
I read a lot in British fashion magazines about how to “be more American” (read: assertive), so learning that New Zealanders are just as passive, doesn’t really surprise me.
It seems like we North Americans on the whole are quite assertive, although I will say that Canadians have a tendency to be more passive-aggressive than Americans.
I should have listened to the advice of people far smarter than me, like Carl Icahn, although his return on his Netflix stock was over 450%!
I probably would have sold at 100%. Silly me.
Although maybe you should just read this list of Rich Habits versus Poor People Habits and take a few lessons from some evil billionaires on how to get rich (hint: index funds.)
While I think cashmere (quality cashmere, not cheap Uniqlo or Joe Fresh cashmere) is a fantastic purchase, it pains me to read when people call clothing items “investments”.
Just look at the price tag and crack the retailer’s price code by way they end the prices with .97, .49 and so on.
