Weekly Money Check-Up: Oct. 25th- Oct. 31st

Ottawa Fashion Week was absolutely AMAZING! Please be patient with me while I sort through a MASSIVE amount of photos! I'll be back with an official post on that soon! 'Til then it's time for another
Weekly Money Check-Up!

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on tickets to Ottawa Fashion Week for J and I! Money well spent :) ($90)

2. Today I feel anxious towards money. I just got my MC bill from October... ouch man. But my pretty camera IS on there :)

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was bake a cake for my mother & grandparents' return from Italy. Welcome Back!

4. I will consider this week a success if I pay off half that huge balance with my upcoming paycheque.

5. If I could grow one thing, it would be a mini herb garden. I'm so used to fresh spices thanks to my wonderful Nonna, that I'll need my own when we move in February. I have black thumbs though... so I definitely don't see that happening!

  1. Rufio and I are friends. Although last night we had many a duel with his sword and my peanut cane.... I just realized how crazy this comment will look to anyone else.

    Good luck with the herb garden. I killed mine, but I have that luck with most plants.

  2. Make sure the herbs get as much light as possible and keep them watered. Also keep any rosemary separate because it will take over.

    I've killed my fair share of herb gardens but I managed to keep some alive this summer.


  3. You're right, those are 90 dollars well-spent! Let me know next time though, we may be able to work it out! =)

    It was so so nice to meet you and I'm glad you were able to join us at the front row for Jessica Biffi!

    and yes, we do have to meet up soon, shop my closet?
