Check out this devotional chicas!

There is a new devotional for young women in their 20's called She Seeks! I look forward to reading it every Monday. I'm glad that there is sound spiritual advice and encouragement that young women can relate to. Today's focus was on mentoring young girls. I think it is important to be an example to young girls. They need someone that has been at that age not too long ago to show them the way. Being the oldest of five siblings, my sisters and brother are definitely looking up to me, especially my youngest sister who is in the sixth grade. Just the other day, she attempted to wear her hair like mine, too cute! I encourage you to check it out and include it in your quiet time (personal time with God).

No Mas Comprando

I spent just a few dollars today at Old Navy on a graphic tee for $5.00 and a nice sweater for $8.99 which came out to a total of $15.14, but I really need to stop buying clothing articles b/c I'm not working at the moment (but hopefully, I will be working in the next week or so). Even though, I have money in the bank, I need to save up moolah for more important things. I'm making a promise to myself to not spend any more money on clothes for let's see the next 2 months (even though something in Forever 21 may catch my fancy. I have enough clothes in my closet as it is and being the fashionista I am, I can spicen things up in my wardrobe...with the essentials and all that jazz. I just happened to be looking on Glamour magazine's website and they give tips on how to shop smarter....Check out the link at http://www.glamour.com/fashion/2009/09/7-ways-to-be-a-smarter-chicer-shopper#slide=1. I'll list the tips here though for ya:
1. Buy a dress you can wear a million ways
2. Spend within your means
3. Rewear and reuse your stuff with pride
4. Know what you own (down to your socks)
5. Get the trends - for less
6. Never have buyer's remorse again!
7. Before you buy, ask yourself am i really itching to wear this, will I wear it next month, next season, next year?
