1. Shopping Addiction
Remember What not to wear? Stacy London from the show, for me, was awesome (I will say, I liked Clinton a tiny bit better as he wasn’t as snarky…). I loved this article from London about her shopping addiction and how she used clothes as a way to try and fill the void in her life to the point of near bankruptcy. You don’t get to hear such honest, raw accounts, and I am deeply grateful to her for writing about it as painful as it was.
2. Java Essentials
An interesting post on how the poor and middle-class tend to buy luxuries first, and how we shouldn’t judge them for making life bearable.
O wherefore art thou? This sweet Juliette sweater is collarless, pretty and sleek while being casual and chic. It would go perfectly with these Vince white sneakers which I do not hate (and I am not a sneaker person)
5. The $0 Workout
This is one of the most creative ways to work out at home for pennies. Plus it made me laugh.
6. Fresh Skin
I swear by this Paula’s Choice 1% Retinol because I use it every other day and after the 2-week purging period, my skin is FRESHHHHH…. Definitely a holy grail item.
7. Essential Recipes
I love Indian food. I really do. Curries, the flavours.. I love it all (but I’ll pass on the desserts though…), and this article on Tejal Rao’s 10 Essential Indian Recipes is a must-read as a crash course on the cuisine. I also love that it is chock-full of flavour and vegetarian if not vegan. <3
I am loving this Ann Taylor set of knotted stud earrings. Simple, bold, chic and understated. Could I have said that about any other item? I also by the way, am obsessed with their high-waisted ponte leggings.
9. A Voyeur in Paris
One of my favourite Money Diaries to date because it was so full of interesting lifestyle bits and pieces (new mother, living in Paris, making a high income..): A Week In Paris, France, On A $101,000 Salary … and the follow-up A Week In Paris, France, On Unemployment was EVEN BETTER.
10. Drinks are on me
I don’t drink, but this martini brooch is adorbs for a small little punch of je ne sais quoi in your outfit. It’s something I as a non-drinker would find cute enough to wear, along with this gorgeous bow-tie waist top… I own one a similar bow-tie top and I wear it to DEATH.
