|Ah, nothing like young link luurve in the springtime.|
It's that time again... time to show you some of my favourite articles from this week.
The lovely ladies at 365 Fashion Rehab (the main inspiration for my project/blog) discuss one of my biggest challenges - wishful shopping. This is when you buy an outfit for the life you wish you lived, which then sits in the back of your closet, unworn. I am deffo struggling with this - for some reason, I keep trying on things and thinking "This will be so cute at a 4th of July picnic!" (despite the fact that I am Canadian, and would probably just wear jeans to a picnic, if I happened to go to one) (I blame having spent my adolescense watching Days of our Lives - they always have a fabulous 4th of July picnic that goes on for like two months on that show)
|The Annual Brady-Horton 4th of July picnic on Days of our Lives.|
A good excuse to wear blue-and-white striped anything.
Fabulously Broke in the City discusses brand loyalty as pertains to Starbucks vs. Tim Hortons. I am definitely more on the Starbucks side of the continuum... how about you?
|I am trying to burn this image of P. Hilton into my retinas to make myself enjoy Starbucks less, |
like a Pavlovian association. So far... it hasn't worked.
Niki at Debt Free by Thirty discusses Batch cooking... ooking... ooking, which is something that I really need to get a better handle on it. Or maybe I just need a bigger freezer? By the time the fourth day of eating the same leftovers rolls around, the idea of making something new and throwing out the leftovers seems soo appealing to me.
And No More Spending.net reposted this really handy list of the most basic ways to pay off your debt/save some money. I find it so tempting to find a new tip that somehow justifies me buying a bunch of new lipsticks, but really, it's all about planning what you spend and holding yourself accountable. And maybe buying lipstick but in moderation.
