Shopping Ban 2019…

I have attempted a shopping ban a few times over the past few years, and I have failed.  I don’t think you can go hog wild on ceasing to shop all together unless you have a reasonable outline of what is allowed and what is not allowed, and you check in monthly for accountability.  I […]

Prepping for a Successful Shopping Ban

I am a firm believer in the old adage “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again”, most especially if it is something you aspire to be or acquire.   I have tried the “Shopping Ban” a couple of times, and I have failed, and perhaps I just wasn’t ready. I was a self proclaimed […]

Declutter Your Email

I don’t know about you, but I spend a good portion of my day on a computer and much of it responding to emails and deleting emails I have been copied on which I really shouldn’t be copied on, but better safe than sorry when it comes to work.  The last thing I want to […]

2017’s Resolutions 

Here is my list of New Year’s resolutions. However, I could just skip the list and tell you my ultimate goal is to be mindful in everything I do, and to focus on today, not worrying so much about tomorrow and leaving the past where it belongs… Be mindful in everything I do. Focus on […]

Farewell 2016! Welcome 2017! 

2016 was a bust for me and from what I understand it hasn’t been kind to many. I started last New Year’s Eve off in a foot/leg cast and was in bed before midnight.   I quickly gained weight from being in a sloth like state for over two months, and then graduated from a cast […]

Living in Excess

[…]

Another Great Staycation Day!

Sure, you can fly to California, France or Italy to visit some fine vineyards, but why do that when an abundance of quality vineyards are in your own backyard.  Welcome to Nova Scotia aka God’s Country, where the people are down to earth & have a great appreciation for the finer things in life such […]

The Shopping Ban List

I’ve come to the realization it doesn’t matter how much money you make, but it is all about how you spend it. One cardinal rule should be to live within your means, but also have a buffer of funds set aside for emergencies, or for a vacation which comes up or whatever.  What I have […]

Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget

I love champagne, I love Louis Vuitton and all things Chanel. Above all things I love to travel and Europe is my favorite destination to hit. The last time I was in Europe was when I explored the UK which included England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland with my best friend & greatest travel companion Jenn. […]

Day 8 – Minimalism Challenge 2016

The challenge continues as more items are discovered which I will never use, therefore they are either being trashed or given away…    A bustier I bought for a costume, but never used A pair of earrings A container for cat treats (gift) A cat salt shaker (gift) A cat pepper shaker (gift) An Eos […]
