Myself On A Budget

These are living super stressful times. Work arrangements are all over the place, our priorities are all over the place, and our potential to foresee future plans is blurred. In between all of this, it is super easy to lose ourselves. There are many simple aspects of my everyday life that I’ve lost track of,…

Toss Your Trash

I have a HUGE pet peeve… and that is a dirty car. I can’t stand seeing trash, old papers, dust and sensing old sweat smells in a car. For that reason, I aim to keep my car as clean as possible. It may not be noticeable, but we spend a lot of time in our…

An Optimized Chance

These are very uncertain times. We are dealing with racial injustice, social riots, contagious diseases, work insecurity and everything in between. Unemployment rates are at a all-time high, and with this, comes greater uncertainty and competition work open jobs. I’ve been impacted by all of this and it has been a very complicated process. I’ve…

Baby Coming To Town

I’ve never been crazy about the baby talk… at least it hasn’t been a concern of mine. I thought about it many times, but I never had the immediate desire to procreate. It wasn’t until about a year ago that I decided that I wanted to have my first baby when I turn 41. As…

Where’s That Coming From?

It seems to me that the majority of us have some sort annoying task to deal with when it comes to our homes. Whether it’s a million piles of leaves in the fall or constantly clogged toilets, our goal is to find solutions that are fast and help us save money in the long run….

Save My Back!

I’m not 30 just yet, and I already struggle with a multitude of back pains. I’ve spent many years seated on chairs with no back support, looking down at a computer monitor for hours, and even sleeping on a very uncomfortable bed. (Talking about beds, who the heck said that Memory Foam is good for…

Stylish Under The Sun

Summer could easily be one of the most popular times of the year. With the multitude of activities to do and the amazing locations to visit under the warm weather, it’s almost hard to avoid the harsh sun rays. I decided to visit a few Caribbean locations for the first time, and although I was…

Summer Heat

We are finally having consistently warm days in the north east! But with consistent beautiful days, also comes consistent heat. I obviously own an air conditioner, but the bill can be high, and my body temperature is confusing (I get cold very easily). Getting a fan for your room is always an added bonus at…

A Fresh Start

Taking care of my facial skin has always been a challenge. Although I’m widely known for looking younger than my age, I still struggle with other things such as sensitivity and dryness. As I may have mentioned on previous blog posts, my skin is so sensitive that many products marketed for sensitive skin actually make…

Major Nail-Over

New year, new saving strategies. I’m always at par with latest beauty trends, but since the economy doesn’t always scream “happy,” I had to figure out a few tricks so keep my budget on track. There’s nothing better than getting my nails done at the salon… I simply don’t have to worry about doing them!…
