Boho On A Budget

Last week I wrote A LOT (I’m sorry, I didn’t mean for it to be that epic) about how I keep my finances in order: from how I tackle budgets and spending freezes to savings plans and more. If you missed it (and are interested), pour yourself a big mug of something good, get comfy and check it out HERE.

I really hadn’t planned to do a series on anything finance, but when I did a little rearranging to my blog schedule this week it worked out that my topic for today was going to be about how to achieve a boho look on a budget. Next weekend it just so happens that I have another financey-related post headed your way. So unintentionally a would-be series was born. I’ll try not to go on at length in today’s post, promise!

Haha… if you read my post about my take on New Year’s then you know that I treat my birthday as my own personal New Year, rather than give into the hype (and pressure) of January 1st. Luckily for me my birthday is at the end of January so it doesn’t seem so far off and I can use January as a trial period. I set three pre-resolutions in THIS post, and basically failed epically at all of them. Well, maybe not the junk mail one, only slightly failed at that. So I’m keeping those on my list and adding the bigger, full-tilt goals below.

40 x 40

Hi everyone! I took a little blog break after the marathon that was Blogmas. It’s good to be back!

And I have big news! Today is my birthday! Hahaha… yep, it’s true. I turned 35 at 9:17 this morning. I’m not sure how I feel about it quite yet. Old, maybe? I’ve already felt old for quite a while haha…so no change from yesterday. Over the hill now and on a downward slide to 40? Ahhhh! Most definitely that’s how I’ve been feeling the past few weeks and now it’s just official.
