...and the days go by (a personal blog)

I can't believe that it is already October! That odd thing is that here in Virginia, the weather today is in the 80s. Ugh. I am not a fan of hot weather.

With the days going by so quickly, it brings me to the topic of Christmas! So I have decided to cut back financially on things in order to be comfortable around Christmastime. I have given up $100 worth of monthly subscriptions. Since I already paid $30 of them, that basically leaves $270 of extra money I will have that can be put towards gifts for others. I am slightly freaking out about money, but I will make it work.

I am not one to talk about politics or current world events that are not related to entertainment...however, I feel that there are a LOT of people that are going through some financial difficulties. I am fortunate to have a job that pays me good, as well as a supportive partner and a place I can call home. I have got to come up with other ways to cut back and make money at the same time. Any ideas??

Oh, and I am on a NO MAKEUP BUYING fast for the rest of 2013. This does NOT include the essentials that I use every day, but nothing new. Nothing limited editions *cries hysterically*. And sadly, no swaps and no hauls. I have about $5000 worth of makeup (not trying to brag) that needs to be used up. So here it is, and you all can hold me to it!

I would love to see more and more people cut back on the little things. If you want to form a little support group with me and we can whine and complain about not being able to buy makeup, I am totally down. Email me too if you need to vent. But mainly, just check out my facebook page (

Until the next blog...
