Thank you to everyone who commented on my post about tipping. I really enjoyed reading everyone’s comments and I’m glad I’m not the only one who struggles with balancing a budget and being fair to those working in our service industry. I realize it’s a tough job, but I also work hard for my money and want to keep as much as possible while still being fair.
Now onto some of my favourite posts :)
- Sassy Girl throws caution to the wind and writes about the courage to be foolish! So cute! :)
- Geek in Heels shares a touching story of a lesson her mother taught her
- Cassie writes a letter to her 17 year old self.
- Geek in Heels writes about being happy and how she tends to write out her emotions when she is unhappy.
- Blonde on a Budget misses Toronto. It is a fabulous city and we’d love to have her back!
- Well-Heeled talks about asking for a price adjustment. I’ve done this several times, and as always, it never hurts to ask! I also think the term “price adjustment” sounds less crude than, “Can I get these for the cheaper price?” :)
- Sandy is fed up with Bank of America. After reading her post, I would be too.
- Krystal at Give me my Five Bucks Back has got a new look! Love it!
- Fabulously Broke has a new series on shopping our closet (love it!), and this is her post on mixing and matching colours.
- Angela shares this really yummy roasted tomato and garlic soup. *drools*
- Hemmed shared a great quote on being petite. When I say I am petite, people usually think I mean I am small – but it really means I am short. Towering at all 5’2-1/2″. There are lots of women who are plus sized petites. It’s all about proportions and not a dress size.
- Wendy is SO fashionable and I love her pairing of a simple black dress with a torquoise clutch and the skirt underneath. So chic and effortless!
- Extra Petite shares her new accessory storage find – a belt ring hanger! I think I will need one of these :)
- Look for Less has a beautiful cowl neck sweater. Both options look great to me!
- This is a great video on how to cover up acne with makeup. I love how the make up artist explains her philosophy on working on illuminating the great skin the person has, and only covering up with is needed, as opposed to putting a blanket of make-up on the person’s face.
If you have some other great reads, you’d like to recommend, please share in the comments! Hope everyone is having a great weekend! :)
