In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: Where this is how much you should spend on a wedding gift

Okay. Big question now. How much should I spend on a wedding gift? My rule of thumb is at a minimum, $100 a person and then more if they are closer to me….

If this wasn’t a boatneck sweater I’d be all over it. I LOVE the navy blue brush stroke print, the casual feeling of it and it is under $50

Let’s start by dismantling the Old Boys Club from its source, and getting rid of these mens-only exclusive clubs that women are not allowed to be a part of. This just BREEDS more and more salary and gender inequality at the root of the most elite colleges.

I own a similar bracelet from Fernanda Sibilia that is in copper and I get stopped by both men and women to ask me where I bought it. It makes me want to buy this wrapped Good Fortune ring to go with it..

I find this article about men and women in Japan quite disturbing to say the least. I am not judging them, but it is scary how a whole culture can turn inward and suddenly be so extreme. The pressure these children must face is also no joke.

I can see why this fur trim sweater went on sale. Gag.

Bozoma St. John should have been in the Business, not the Style section for being a badass C-suite boss. Honestly speaking, women are relegated to “style” and “homemaking” but men are in “money” and “business”. What kind of #%*) is that?

I hemmed and hawed over these Rag and Bone Harrow Boots and in the end, am super glad I picked them up. They are very cool with the wrap leather strap around the ankle and are a nice change from my tried and true Club Monaco Brooklyn staple boot that is no longer on sale (it doesn’t even get restocked yearly).

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using 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 with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
