Life after debt. How one family found financial peace.
Sometimes I think when people hear that we paid off over $55,000 of consumer debt in two years that we must be rich or at least make a six-figure income. But the truth is, we barely make $60,000 a year and back when we were deep in debt it was only $42,000 a year.  We […]

5 Ways to get un-stuck and find the success you crave
Stuck. Just stuck. Just flat-out, plain-old stuck and unable to move.  That’s exactly how I felt in my early adult life. I felt like I couldn’t move – I didn’t know how to “move up” in the sense of getting a better job or being able to afford a better life for myself.  Sure, I […]

Skincare Review: La Solution 10 De Chanel
I had forgotten how much I like this rich, instantly-soothing face cream from Chanel. It contains just ten ingredients (hence the Solution 10) and has been carefully and cleverly formulated so that it’s suitable for even the most sensitive skin. No fragrance (a rarity in Chanel’s skincare line-up), no mineral oil and a preservative that’s […]

The Classic Red Lip: A New Way To Wear It
Here’s the classic red lip but with a new way to wear it. Which makes it the un-classic red lip, I suppose. It’s soft and diffused, the edges are patted down and blurry – it’s easier and more wearable than the traditional hard-edged, punchy red lip but still vibrant enough to make it a total show-stopper.
