    Real Estate: An Inside Look

    Real estate is changing fast! We’re currently still in a seller’s market (meaning that the seller can get pretty much whatever they want). I shared with y’all what Sadie had to say here and Belle added to it. Belle shared more about the inside look into real estate, particularly into what you need in a real estate agent. Before you even start reading, I’m going to go ahead and plug Belle’s email and Instagram. Belle is one of the sweetest human beings and is hands down one of the hardest workers I know. All information is from Belle unless it is under my personal experience. Belle’s Journey to Real Estate…

    Owning Versus Renting

    Owning versus renting is a huge discussion these days. People are either all about renting or throwing their money into owning. It doesn’t even matter what it is: homes, cars, clothes. You name it, there is a discussion about it. While I am a big proponent of saving money, I also know it’s important to consider how you spend it. The Pros and Cons of Owning Pros: You’re building equity. Especially in things like homes, when you purchase it, you are continuing to build your financial portfolio and continue to build wealth. After you finish paying it off, no one can take it from you. This is huge. Especially if…

    Pinterest Marketing 2021 Update

    Pinterest can be your best friend when it comes to marketing your content as a blogger, youtuber, etc. Pinterest does one thing extremely well: change the algorithm. Boss Girl Bloggers, aka Ell, shared about the update here. I am still finding the most impression success using Story Pins. However, I do find some very slight success using video pins. I really started focusing on Pinterest in December because I had a 2 week break from school which to create a ton of content for Pinterest. My first week back to school left me more drained as I faced the hardest week of my teaching career to date. However, as you…

    Tuckernuck Sample Sale

    The Tuckernuck Sample Sale is online for the first time ever! Tuckernuck has a store in DC, which is where this sale is normally hosted. However, with COVID, they switched it to be all online. I am so glad to shop around the site. I love what Tuckernuck has to offer, but can’t afford a ton of it on a teacher’s budget (hello, Barbour). The sale is only 48 hours, January 6-7, so make sure to hop on and take a look around. Tuckernuck has also said they’ll be adding more pieces on the second day. They have it set up like a Lilly Pulitzer sale, where there is a…

    Shop Your Closet

    Shop your closet and create new outfits! Styling outfits is one of my favorite things to do. I love to find pieces that go together. I’ve been known to say “I like my money where I can see it-in my closet”. Which is great, except I also really like to save money. One thing I’ve gotten a lot better at this year is styling outfits from my closet. The idea behind these posts is that you can see what I would mix and match in my closet to make different outfits. I include prices in posts like these so that if you wanted to shop, you’re not blindsided when you…

    Amazon for Valentine’s Day

    Valentine’s Day is coming up! While I typically don’t do much for the holiday (I blame this on being single), I do like looking around and browsing for fun decorations and ways to celebrate! I will say I am usually quite the grinch about Valentine’s Day. Plus, I do love any excuse to shop! One of the usual perks of being a teacher is decorating for holidays. However, this year, I’m not planning on doing anything for Valentine’s. It’s hard to decorate with COVID, since soft surfaces can capture the germs. I’ve really tried to minimize the soft surfaces in my room this year. Likewise, I made this keeping in…

    Office Decor

    I love decorating office space. Honestly, I love decorating in general. However, there is something special about office supplies. I also love back to school shopping, so it’s probably that they’re similar if we’re being honest. As I keep moving toward buying my own house, I’ve started to think about what items I want to have in it. Thankfully, I’ll be done with grad school by the time I’ll purchase and finalize everything for a home. However, this is not stopping me from wanting a dedicated office space.
