You Can Get It!

Let's be real, as much as we have all tried to frugalize (Is that a word?) our budget's in this sagging economy, every now and then we still have the desire to purchase a high end item.  Well if you haven't heard yet, there is a place where you too can get it!  Chanel, Prada, Hermes, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Christian Louboutin all included!

Couture USA is an online designer resale boutique that offers previously owned, luxury items at much gentler than retail prices.  Couture USA also has a consignment program with various options for selling your gently used luxury items.  I have perused the site several times and found no lack of merchandise to choose from.  Now let's get to the good part.....THEY HAVE LAYAWAY!  Yes you read it right! Couture USA offers a 60 day layaway plan, on a minimum $100 purchase, with a 30% down payment. The thing I like most about the 30% down payment is that after your down payment is subtracted from the total price of your item, it makes the remaining balance seem much more attainable.

So no longer do you have wish upon a star, play lotto or make penny rolls to get some of the luxury items you've been wishing for.  Visit today and start fulfilling your your high end dreams!

Sunday Guilt

Hey Divas!  I hope everyone is doing well and living life to the fullest.  I have a question to pose today.  Has your weekend ever ended with you feeling not only exhausted, but unproductive?  I don't know about you, but last night this is exactly how I felt.

My weekends always starts out full of optimism.  This past one was no different than any other. I planned on catching up on chores, grocery shopping and getting a little rest. However, at the top of my list of priorities, every weekend, is spending quality time with my child. Very seldom do we just bum out.  We usually get out and take advantage of not being on a schedule, but it never fails that by Sunday night, I feel totally unprepared for Monday.  I find myself feeling down and out about not meeting my household deadlines.  Maybe it's just an issue of time management or procrastination.  At this point, I'm not even sure.  Luckily, I always find a way to pull together a weekend's worth of duties within a few hours on Sunday night.  Can you feel the stress?

When I logged into my Facebook account today, I was inspired by a simple post that made me realize it's time for me to stop being hard on myself.  More importantly, it's past due time for me to learn how to take life one day a time and to have more appreciation of each moment of each day.  I was so inspired by the post that I decided to share it with my readers.  Let this soak in and let me know if you also deal with Sunday Guilt.

"Think about how when you took the first breath this morning and how delighted you were to wake up another day.  Let that feeling last through out your day because someone didn't get that feeling."
