Sorry my Feb recap is a bit overdue, as we are going on our second week of March, but I’ve had, you know, just a couple small things going on in my life. lol. Well, I’m home!!! It really does feel good to be back, although the feeling was a tad bit anti-climactic, since I […] The post February Rewind: I’m Home! appeared first on Budget and the Beach. ...

I only have a couple more days left here in Boise before I move back to LA (where I moved from 6 months ago if you are new to this blog), and things are going along fairly well, although I’ve been pretty busy with work, training with The Financial Gym and editing videos for VolleyCamp […] The post Lessons Learned from my Move to Boise appeared first on Budget and the ...

Welcome to my first monthly rewind of 2019. Today is the SuperBowl and I’ll be cheering for the Rams. I’m usually pretty team agnostic, but it would be nice to see someone else win besides the Patriots.* It’s nice to see that the stock market rebounded since the last time I did a rewind in […] The post January Rewind: Hustlin’ Hard appeared first on Budget and the Beach. ...

The other day I was watching another lesson from Mel Robbins’s #MindsetReset series, and that day she was talking about money worries, and what to do about it. I was very excited to see the name of that episode, because I have been feeling a LOT of financial anxiety lately. A little financial anxiety is […] The post Money Anxiety!!!! appeared first on Budget and the Beach. ...

This post is dedicated to everyone who have been so supportive of my writing, and who have encouraged me to keep being real, vulnerable, and putting myself out there. Thank you! Midlife and the Happiness U-Curve Last summer I posted an online survey for people who were in their 40s like me. It was about general happiness levels in […] The post Call it a Midlife Opportunity, Not a Midlife Crisis appeared first on Budget ...

The other day I came across a post from a fellow blogger who I like and respect “lightly” making fun of people who are high income earners, but who are still living paycheck to paycheck. Of course it’s their blog and free speech and all of that, but it did spark something in me that made me […] The post Why Are We so Quick to Judge? appeared first on Budget and the ...

Happy New Year!!  I’m writing this on New Year’s Eve and as of this moment, this evening’s big plans (aside from finishing this post) is to cook dinner, take a bubble bath, and watch HGTV, because they are offering free programing this week. FTW! If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you’ll know that […] The post 2019: The Year of Strength appeared first on Budget and the Beach. ...

If I had to describe my year in one sentence it would be: “Dang girl, you’ve got some balls!” I don’t normally toot my own horn, but I’m really proud of myself for following through on some big life moves even if yes, they didn’t always pan out. I’m a big believer in not looking […] The post 2018 Rewind: Girl, You Got Some Balls! appeared first on Budget and the ...

Merry Christmas!  I’m sure many of you are taking some much-needed time off work for the holidays. For me, not having a full-time job right now, many of my days just kind of blend…even weekends. I would normally report my net worth in this section, but the truth is, I just can’t bear to look […] The post December Rewind: California Dreamin’ appeared first on Budget and the Beach. ...

Happy December! Happy Holidays…and all that jazz. I’ve been deliberately laying low this last month, albeit being extremely productive. Sometimes you are in a “sharing” mood, and other times, like this past month, you don’t feel in the mood to share at all. There are seasons for everything, my friends. And I’ll probably be continuing […] The post November Rewind: Layin’ Low appeared first on Budget and the Beach. ...
