Living Luxe for Less, the Inspiration and the Goal
Have you ever been reading a fashion magazine and you spot a ring or clothing item that you know you just can’t live without?Then when you spot the ring that would go so perfectly with your outfit for Friday night, you look on the right hand corner of the page to read the fine print, and there it is, the dreaded…price listed upon request. OH...NO!!! If a piece of jewelry is so expensive that the magazine can’t even print the price, well let’s just say that it won’t be coming home with me any time soon!
We live in a world where everyone is so busy, and people can rarely find the time to treat and take care of themselves.In this fast paced society where we all seem to be working more, even though the economy does not seem to be getting any better, I understand that it’s easy for people to put aside their desire to treat themselves to a nice meal or something new for their wardrobe or home.
The problem with this mentality is that when we don’t feel good about the way we present ourselves, or the way we present our home to others, we can sometimes end up not feeling good about ourselves in general.Some may say that a new pair of earrings or bracelet isn’t necessary, but when that new piece of jewelry makes you feel better about yourself, than that new accessory is not just completing your outfit, but it is also making you more confident and happy, which in turn will make you more successful in every area of your life, whether it be at home, with your children, or in the workplace.
My point is that treating ourselves every now and then is not such bad thing.We all deserve a little bit of luxury in our lives, no matter how much a person makes, or what her budget is for the month.
In this space I will focus on how everyone can have nice things, at many different price points.This will be a guide for better living, and it will include tips on living well on a budget, and “cheap and chic” items that might just shock and amaze you!
Every day there will be a new “steal of the day”, or tip on how to help you live well for less.I will focus on jewelry and accessories, chic but budget friendly fashion, wedding ideas, interior design inspirations, and how to eat and drink better for less.I know you are busy and you don’t have time to read every magazine, or visit every discount store in your neighborhood for the latest, best deal, so I am here to do the work for you.
I will also try to focus on writing about items or deals that you can get a hold of right now!Have you ever been reading a magazine or watching TV and seen a product that you would love to buy, but you go and look for it online, and then realize that the item is out of stock because it was actually in stores two months ago?! Whenever possible, I will always try and feature current items that are in stock so that you actually have a chance of purchasing the items that you see here.
We all deserve to live better, and treat ourselves to the finer things in life every now and then. This is your guide to treating yourself, while spending your money guilt free because you will know that you are getting a great deal!
I recently moved from New York City where I lived for 8 years to New Jersey. I am currently working on decorating a new home for less! I'm a mother and a wife, and in my free time love to search for great deals to spend less and live better. I believe that we all can enjoy fashionable clothes, trendy or timeless accessories, delicious food and wine, and find ways to stay fit, even on a limited budget.
