*this post contains no affiliate links.  Merry (almost Christmas)! I’ll go ahead and say that now in case this is my only post for the month. I hope to do a year re-cap sometime in December, but at my posting rate lately, you never know… November Net Worth As always, I like to start with […] The post November Rewind: Gettin’ Dir-tay appeared first on Budget and the Beach. ...

This past holiday weekend I had a lot of downtime, so I watched a bunch of movies. One of them was Ingrid Goes West, a movie starring Aubrey Plaza as Ingrid, a woman who is not quite mentally stable who becomes obsessed with an Instagram star named Taylor (played by Elizabeth Olsen) who appears to have the […] The post Behind the Perfect Picture appeared first on Budget and the Beach. ...

This past weekend I felt a happiness I haven’t felt in awhile. I took part in Terrain Racing, a mud/obstacle run. It was an event I had signed up for back in July when I saw an ad for a a price cut in the event. I also convinced one of my co-workers (Julia) and […] The post My Happy Place appeared first on Budget and the Beach. ...

I don’t know…I couldn’t think of a better subtitle. Happy Halloween to all of you spooktacular readers. Yeah, it’s been awhile since I have posted, but the reality is I simply haven’t felt like writing, or what I wanted to really talk about I can’t talk about, well, publicly. A much cooler, foggier beach run This is the last weekend in October, and it has FINALLY felt like fall. Last week at ...

Happy October peeps! October is probably my favorite month because it’s my birthday (although I don’t celebrate with the fanfare I used to) and my favorite holiday, Halloween (although I don’t celebrate with the fanfare that I used to-lol!). After that I could fast-forward through November and December (save for Thanksgiving-my second favorite holiday) to the New Year. Yup, if you’re new here I’ll let you in on a little ...

Last night I watched, Gaga: Five Foot Two, on Netflix. The trailer hooked me: The bio doc follows Gaga around while she makes her record, Joanne, and concludes with her performance at this past year’s Super Bowl halftime show. And it’s very candid. At just 31, she strikes me as someone who has seemed to live 12 lifetimes. She seems much older than most 31-year-olds I know, not because of her “look” ...

Several months ago there were a group of people going out to what I consider a fairly expensive dinner. Although the group is fun and I wanted to hang out, I passed, opting to say, “I’m trying to save money right now.” One person’s response to that was, “it’s only money!” Seven or eight years ago I […] The post I Pledge Allegiance to Frugality appeared first on Budget and the Beach. ...

Recently I went to see the movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which was playing as part of a free movie series on the beach in Hermosa Beach. If you remember the movie, Ferris’s sister Jeanie spent the majority of the day that Ferris skipped school angry, and wanting to prove to everyone that her brother was ditching…again. Towards the end of the movie, Jeanie gets taken to the police station for making a ...

Because last weekend we had Monday off for Labor Day, it gave me some much-needed time to rest, read, get exercise, do some adulting (errands, cleaning, financial planning), etc. I also indulged in a guilty pleasure: Youtube surfing. I saw that Youtuber Claire Michelle had posted not one, but two long-winded videos, giving us pretty much her entire life story. As I sat and watched, part of me thought, “good lord this chick is ...

Hey all! Happy almost Fall? Is Fall capitalized? Ah whatever. If it isn’t I’m just going to break the rules. Damn that feels good! It’s Labor Day weekend and it’s hotter than satan’s ballz in LA right now, but I can’t complain as my thoughts are with everyone in Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey right now. I can manage a little heat. Plus we have Monday off from work so… Well, the ...
