I am a huge fan of tote bags because I can be hands-free on my way to work and they are perfect for carrying all my work essentials. I will be comparing my four favorite tote bags in this post, starting from newest to oldest. I heard about the Tory Burch Perry Tote from Amie’s blog and YouTube channel. She has a light blue one and raves about this bag all the time, so I had to get it when I saw this French Grey color, which retails for $395. I had been wanting a new work tote since I… View Post

As a consultant, I am sometimes able to work from home. Basically as long as my meetings can be done online and I don’t have to be on the client site, I can work from home.

I recently saw this video about fake Kylie lip kits gluing people’s lips together and remembered that I had one too, so here we go.

I like to start early, because there are more options available and I have more time to think about what I want to get for who. I picked out some of my favorites from this year’s holiday section, including three gift sets and two stocking stuffers (in no particular order). Too Faced Grande Hotel Café ($49) – this gift set is worth $292! You are not only paying less than… View Post

Happy November! The first day of the month is the day I pay my (New York) rent. Yes, rent in New York City is insanely high. Before I started work, I did some googling about how to budget for a young adult. It was helpful, but I didn’t start learning until I got my first paycheck. When I saw the amount deposited into my account, I wanted to cry. New York City tax is INSANELY high! I thought to myself how am I going to live like this? The first month after I got my first paycheck, I was a… View Post
