Best photo of the week goes to this carb on carb situation.


How has it been four months since my last money diary post?

I don’t have a good excuse but I am back!

This week I get a little lucky, go out on a Friday night, and sweat it out at an infrared sauna session…among other things.

Let’s dive right in.

Two weekends ago, Vadim and I spent a long weekend in Montreal with our friends.  We rented a car and turned it into a road trip up north. This was our first time driving there. It was also the first time I realized that New York is HUGE. We were basically in New York 99% of the time during our 6.5 hr drive. Who knew? I definitely didn’t.

Anyway, we rented an airbnb, ate at two restaurants notorious for hard to come by reservations, and made a bunch of memories that will probably make me laugh till I pee when I think about them in old age.

If you’re curious about how much we spent on our five day adventure, keep reading for all the details you didn’t ask for. View Post

Bag: Clare V.

Last week I shared my money diary for the whole week. This week I thought it would be interesting to see how much Vadim and I spend over the weekend, as a couple. We get groceries, go to brunch, and spend some money at a farmers market. If you’re curious to see how it went down, keep on reading. View Post

One of my favorite things to read is Refinery29’s Money Diaries series. And when my friend, Luxe started recapping her weekend spending, I felt even more inspired to get in on the action. Maybe I’m living vicariously through people’s purchases, or simply trying to seek pearls of wisdom to save myself a few bucks.  Either way, the ways in which people spend and save fascinate me. And now that I am employed and can spend money (responsibly), I can finally share my first ever money diaries post. I have been waiting so long for this very moment. So let’s get right into it.  View Post
