What I’m Buying in June

So like I mentioned in my May Financial Fitness Check In, we are tightening the belt in June. Also, to be honest I don't know if there is really anything else I need at the moment. Except to get my winter tires swapped out, a pair of white pants (I am having a very hard … Continue reading What I’m Buying in June

City Shopping List

When you live somewhere like where I live you do a lot of online shopping, but you also keep a running list going of things that you have no clue how to buy online or are unwilling to buy three or four different sizes of an item to try and figure out what size works … Continue reading City Shopping List

What I’m Buying in May

This has quickly become one of my favourite posts to write in this Month in Review/Monthly Planning series that I do. It makes me so much more intentional about what I purchase, what I do with my money, and I do stick to it, and if there is something that comes up in the middle … Continue reading What I’m Buying in May

What I’m Buying in April

I think that April is going to be a month that I focus a bit on starting to build a wardrobe that is realistic for my current circumstances, rather than aspirational. I love clothes, I love dressing up and wearing pretty dresses and pretty shoes, but I also hate attracting attention to myself (says she … Continue reading What I’m Buying in April

Spring 2022 Sephora Sale

It's Sephora sale time! I have always thought that there is a privilege in being able to shop sales. Being able to afford to stock up on your normal products and try out some new things with less financial risk because you got 20 or 15% off. But you still have to have spare funds … Continue reading Spring 2022 Sephora Sale

What I’m Buying in March

This month is feeling a bit less predictable than February did. I'm expecting a very large paycheque so I might have a bit more flexibility to be able to do some of my other goals that require spending money. But I'm not sure, I need to see how much it will be before I can … Continue reading What I’m Buying in March

What I’m Buying in February

This is going to be a new series, a part of the financial accountability I'm striving for. But I don't feel like that quite sums it up, it's about being thoughtful about how I spend my money, what I bring into my house, what I put onto and into my body and just generally overall … Continue reading What I’m Buying in February

Friday Favorites: A Week to Rest

This is going to be a weird one, not following my normal format of Favorite Instagram, TV/Movie, Podcast, etc. because I haven't been consuming nearly as much digital media this week. I read 5 books, hung out with my family, threw up watching the new Spiderman movie (sorry to everyone in the 2:40 showing at … Continue reading Friday Favorites: A Week to Rest

Wednesday Wants: Beauty

So this is slightly different, not only is this things I want, it's also things I have an order placed on it. But I have run out of a ton of makeup and skincare items, which is great from the perspective of my Project Pan, but of course I'm out of the things I'm actually … Continue reading Wednesday Wants: Beauty

No-Buy Month

I spent way too much money in July, some of it was explainable. It was a magical three paycheque month (if you get paid bi-weekly there are 2 months a year were you get 3 paycheques in a month). Normally my paycheques are pretty accounted for, with the first one of the month being most … Continue reading No-Buy Month
