Somehow or another I fell back a week in the what I wore posts. This week is actually more like a week and a half ago when there were some brutally hot days mixed in there. Mostly t-shirts and jeans, nothing fancy as usual 😉
For the past few weeks I have noticed some hair breakage around the crown of my head. At first I thought it was from harsh over the counter hair dyes, but as I was getting ready for bed a few nights ago I clued in that it was from my frequent messy buns. I have routinely coiled my hair up into a bun every single night for years. It is my go-to lazy hairdo, especially in summer. It never even crossed my mind that, that was the cause of it, so now I have to find a new bed time hair-do that will keep my hair off my face that doesn’t involve an elastic around my crown.
Is it just me or is it really f*ing difficult to save for a vacation? We are trying to save for a Christmas in Europe vacation for this year and it’s like $100 into savings and $300 out sort of deal. There seems like there are so many expenses that keep creeping up. Our car lease is up really soon and we have to get another which will be an increase in monthly payments, and we have to pay the mileage overage on our current car because we drove the shit out of it when Tom had to travel for work a couple of years ago. We always seem like we are playing catch up with the bills and there never seems like there is anything left over for savings. It doesn’t help that we live in one of the most expensive cities in the country either because this increases rent/mortgages, food (which is super expensive in this country to begin with), and pretty much every other expense you can think of. Such is life. I guess it will make us appreciate it more when we get there.
Disclaimer: This is my self-pitying post of the month 😉
Do you have any tips on how to successfully save for holidays?
