Tweet Remember these previous Yay or Nays when you guys talked me out of unnecessary / unflattering items? Well, this time I am in need of your advice again. I see this Rebecca Minkoff Beau Clutch for $150 at a local Nordstrom Rack. In real life, the bag is a little bit more orange-toned than […]

Tweet I just had my last wisdom tooth pulled out. Fortunately, because it wasn’t impacted and was already halfway out of the gum line, I was in and out of the dentist’s chair in 30 minutes. The best thing about a wisdom tooth removal, however, is the dentist’s orders to actually EAT ICE CREAM. (The […]

Tweet Today marks a milestone: The Galapagos Fund has crossed the $5,000 line. We are officially 1/2 of the way there to our $10,000 goal. I can’t believe it has already been a year since we first started the fund. The $10K goal was daunting from the get-go. When I first wrote about this goal, […]

Tweet The perfect black suit is a staple in any professional woman’s wardrobe. This weekend, I bought a brand-new black suit from Banana Republic. It cost quite a bit ($140 for the blazer, $55 for the pencil skirt, and $55 for the matching shift dress, and that’s including a 30% in-store coupon). However, I’ve had […]

Tweet If you are not a fan of chocolate like I am, you might be slightly confused by the concept of a chocolate budget… but if you love all things chocolate (like I do), then I’m guessing you understand where I’m coming from. (Doesn’t this picture pluck at your heartstrings taste buds?) My love for […]

Tweet Most people would say “no” to borrowing money for a vacation. But what if the circumstances were slightly altered? What if this trip wasn’t purely a vacation but a visit to the place of your birth? What if the travel isn’t for you but for your elderly parents, who might not have the opportunity […]

Tweet This Christmas, I received a pair of gorgeous ruby earrings (and separate gifts for my birthday). They sparkle like a vampire of the Twilight variety. These are “created” rubies, i.e. stones with the same chemical properties as naturally-occurring rubies, except these stones were made in the laboratory instead of dug from the ground. This […]

Tweet I realized that I haven’t really talked about my Disney World adventure (aside from the Dining Plan review) on this blog yet… and well, that oversight must be rectified! If you have any specific questions about Disney World, please ask away and I’ll do my best to answer. We Got To Disney World… CB […]
