In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: Where a baby racoon would rather stuff his little pie hole than breathe.

OMG. NSFW. You will cry seeing this adorable little baby and this abused rescue dog and nap together in the cutest photos ever. I love all of them. The family’s Instagram account is here.

Once I get more money, I’m going to buy one of these skincare masks to see if it’s worth the hype. Apparently celebrities use them and I’m thinking this one will turn me into Angelina Jolie or something.

This couple was married for 77 years and died holding hands in the same hospital. What a long lasting love story.


A baby racoon would rather eat than breathe and it is adorable. This.. sort of brought back memories of growing up with my siblings. LOL! I was the one in the feed bowl, fighting off my siblings obviously. I’m a pig.

What a cute long distance love mug for Mother’s Day for Americans.

Speaking of funny, Patsy Clairmont is hilarious talking about being a “crafty person”. This is me and blogging. I have so many blog posts and ideas but can’t quite get to writing them because I get sidetracked during Baby Bun naps.

Pressed purple flower teardrop earrings… I love pressed flowers, it just looks so elegant with nature captured.

This woman was the original #GirlBoss. Honestly, she is admirably fierce and is my new role model.

LOL!!! A Simpson’s donut holder for pushpins (and for sewing too?)

Moving in the U.S.? I found this website for community crime super helpful. You can put in an address of where you are looking to move and see what has happened in the past year.

Once I’m back to work, this will be my new lunch box. Guaranteed. Along with this beaker mug for tea because I have unfulfilled dreams.

I’d like to hire this Japanese puffer fish to come landscape my building.

I FOUND IT. I would buy this gorgeous Mediterranean triptych as art for my apartment. It is going on my “Maybe” list because we have limited walls for art. It is just so beachy and wonderful.

The memory trick I use: to remember something, make it memorable and visual. This is how I remember the names of the parents from playgroup, no matter who they are; not just by their kids (oh you’re the mom of Evan!), but their own names.

The most minimalist watches you will ever find. This Terra Watch (for your favourite traveler or geologist) and this Past, Present and Future Watch caught my attention.

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    There’s your Sydney love again! Actually, I had a break up in October, and out shopping quite soon after, I finally ‘splurged’ on some foam mounted photos of sunset/rise at the beach. I often admired them, bought them as a gifts when I travelled, but I finally thought… no! I deserve to see that pretty – I love the light in the two photos I have. And if I move overseas I’ll have some of ‘home’ with me (currently, most of my art if from travelling…)

      I am in love with the idea of Sydney for sure. The beach, the laidback attitude, culture…
