About the Author
I’m a 20-something college graduate trying to make my way in the world. Right now, I am a full-time graduate student. My favorite things are to eat great food, hang out with friends, read good books (Sherlock Holmes!) and dance the tango.
My goal is to strike a balance between saving money and enjoying life, as well as learning to say no to stuff and yes to experience. I believe the days may be long, but life is short. Even though my finances are OK, sometimes I wonder how am I going to save enough to fund my retirement. I got married to my high school boyfriend in 2012, and this blog helped me tremendously in having a wedding that’s meaningful to me but still within our budget.

About the Well-Heeled Blog
I started this blog in 2006. My first entries (long edited away) focused on lifestyle and decor issues. But I soon discovered the world of personal finance blogs and realized that it speaks perfectly to the inner nerd in me. It also helps that as a personal blogger, I can write about almost anything (including lifestyle and decor) because money touches everything. This blog covers many topics surrounding personal finance, along with other pursuits I’m passionate about (and usually connected to) personal finance:
- retirement planning
- saving / budgeting / investing
- money and relationships
- twentysomething issues
- cooking / eating
- Argentine tango
- marketing and business observations
- consumer behavior
