I'm currently in the process of a somewhat drastic but ultimately helpful new frugal endeavour, which I will tell you about in short order. OK, I'm trying using the Diva Cup. But more deets on that later.
For now, here are some interesting posts from other fashion and/or finance blogs that I've found interesting in the past little while:
Beauty, changing the game, iconicity and the Lady Gaga (Manolo's Shoe Blog)

5 obstacles to financial fitness (Frugal for life)
You want to be financially fit. You know all about buying generic and what needs to be done to start a budget. You know what is involved in starting your retirement fund and how much to sock away.

Get a carved body with this 15-minute no-equipment workout craze from 1904 (The Consumerist)
Who needs a Craigslist gym or any kind of gym at all? They certainly didn't have the list of Craig back in 1904 when Danish fitness master J.P. Müller invented his 15-minute workout called "My System."
