New Column: Feel Rich Friday

After obsessively watching full episodes of Suze Orman online last week, I've been inspired to start a new column on my blog.  Feel Rich Friday will be the title and each Friday I will spotlight an item that gives a fabulous look without breaking the bank.

I'm a woman who has always wanted a lot, but always put the cart before the horse (champagne taste with a beer wallet).  I've improved over the years, but watching Suze Orman allowed me to see that I basically can't afford any of the luxury items I so desire.  For example, currently on my wish list is a pair of Louboutins and Louis Vuitton luggage.  Even though these are things I could save for and still buy, my eyes are now opened to the fact that I don't need them and really can't afford them.  As a result of the lessons learned in the past week, I instead opted for opening a 529 college savings account for my daughter and an online stock trading account.  When you know better you do better.  Enough said.

Now being fully aware of my new priorities, what about my style desires?  I can't just let them fade to black!  I'm determined to still be able to feel fabulous without going broke.  I'm also aware that today isn't Friday, but since I can't wait so I've decided to give a sneak preview of Feel Rich Friday.  So without further ado, here is a sneak peek of the first Feel Rich Friday item.
Epiphany Diamonique 100-Facet Tennis Bracelet
6-1/2"L 6.85 carats; 7-1/4"L 7.65 carats, 8"L 8.45 carats
$114.00

This bracelet has mixed reviews, but many great reviews.  One review even said that a jeweler mistook it for being the real thing!  I love tennis bracelets because they can be worn with anything from a t-shirt to a ball gown and everything in between.  A genuine bracelet similar to this would cost $4000 plus!  The other good thing about this bracelet is if you lose it, you won't be totally devastated.  With that said, Welcome to Feel Rich Friday (on Sunday)!  Don't forget to check in every Friday for the next exciting find!

P.S.  Never be ashamed of who you are and what you can or cannot afford.  Life is a one-time shot so live it and live it your way!  Muah!
