In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: Where legal sex workers can make over $500,000

I found this money diary of a legal sex worker extremely interesting in terms of spending in an industry that is so cloak & dagger… Most interesting part?

“My goal is to book $750,000 this year. I’ve booked $534,000 this year so far — $267,000 pre-expenses and pre-taxes. During tax season, many things for us are deductible — condoms, lube, massage oil, photo shoots, my computer, my cell phone, the cost to get my hair cut, makeup, etc. I file as an LLC and pay just over $15,000 in taxes each year on average.”

WHOA.

If you are still trying to find your own personal style, this is a really intense book full of questions and activities that WILL get you there. If you need more ideas, this is The PERFECT book for any style-obsessed person. I bought one for me (like a physical paper copy, which means a lot) and a good friend of mine because it is so full of help, tips and is incredibly practical.

I am OBSESSED with this new Instagram style feed of @my9to5shoes I discovered… Her style is 100% wearable for the normal person (you know, you and me), practical and covetable. <3

If you’re still struggling with trying to find a Holiday Gift, I really recommend this Gift Guide from The Every Girl. It’s nicely laid out and some pieces are what I’d recommend too.

This shirt. This shirt is $130. I’m trying to figure out how and why they can charge that price because it’s like a … nothing shirt. There’s nothing there.

Men are now more likely to “marry up”, and seeing as some women are becoming major catches for having brains, beauty & high earning potential, I can see why. No one wants a scrub, male or female…

I bought these Poppin desk trays in magenta and LOVE THEM. They really brighten up the hallway, and when they all match it looks much better. I use them to store my keys when I come in, papers that I need to take care of, and so on.


My sibling, my nightmare. Those of you with nightmare siblings… relate.

I can’t stop looking at this rose gold bee watch. *tries to steel her resolve not to buy it*.. It’s just so pretty.. but the face isn’t the size I like to wear, I am into huge men-sized watches.

Copy the birds and solve major technological bullet train problems. This is an incredibly fascinating piece of technology being improved by what’s all around us — nature.

I feel like this would be an $800 mistake for any fashionista. I mean… it looks like a DIY project gone wrong.

LOVE that this CEO takes candidates to breakfast to check to see how they deal with a restaurant screwing up their order.

The perfect little lace tank to wear underneath anything.

Dating in your 30s. I feel for you, I really do… actually dating at any age though I will say I am in my 30s and I have not found it hard to find plenty of guys who are interested (NOT THAT I HAVE ENCOURAGED THEM), but the caliber of the ones who are still single in their 30s or older? That’s another story altogether. I’m very very happy I’m taken.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using TheBudgetingTool.com. 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.
