We Want to Know Wednesdays!

Hello, my loves!! Taking a little break from the polish b/c last night's manicure is sticking pretty well, so I thought I'd introduce something new from *Dandelion Wishes* called

*Dandelion Wishes* is a great blog run by Colleen and sometimes her hubby, "Big Daddy," too :)
We Want to Know Wednesdays are a pretty cool way to get to know your fellow bloggers by posing 5 questions about a certain topic. This week's topic is money
Here we go!!
{1} What is something that you currently spend money on that you consider a splurge or frivolous?
Something that is definitely frivolous is documented here...nail polish/makeup. I LOVE IT. I can't stop buying it but it's definitely a frivolity. Once Lent is over, i have a lot of catching up to do ;)
{2} Tell us about your first paying job. How old were you?
First paying job was a cashier at a grocery store chain in WNY--Tops. I was probably about 15 or 16 and saving for a trip to France. I started as a cashier and at the end of two years, I was working at the customer service desk
{3} Do you plan date nights and extras into a monthly/weekly budget?
If there is something that I really want, I save for it over a couple of paychecks. Right now, I've got my eye on a rose gold watch from Fossil once Lent is over :)
{4} Share one of your money saving tips with us.
I don't have any, haha. I try to maintain a savings account but that never ends well. I'm trying really hard because I want my own apartment within a year. Giving the money to my mom to put away works well, too. Also, COUPONS.
And finally, Christine @ wants to know:
{5} If you won the lottery - would you spend it frivolously or use what you need and save the rest? Why?
I definitely would do some shopping...What not to Wear style, take $5000 and buy clothes, shoes, and bags...maybe a house and a new car, then save the rest in some type of account that earns a good amount of interest.
that's all for me, tonight :) about to finish watching idol and hit the hay...tomorrow's another day and I gotta be prepared for anything.
until next time

  1. I am so with you on makeup and nail polish. I have an embarrassing amount of nail polish that is rarely used. I'm waiting until this weekend to go NEON ORANGE on my hands. :)

    Hope your watch is everything you want it to be. Happy Wednesday and happy anticipation for the end of Lent.

  2. that's what I love about nail can do so many different colors and it's not like you're stuck with it forever :) I probably change mine once a week. Neon colors on nails are going to be all over the place this summer, so you're ahead of the curve!

  3. Did you ever save enough money for that trip to France? I hope so!

    1. I did! My parents were kind enough to help out with some of the things that needed to be paid on a deadline before I got my job but it was mostly paid for myself :) I had the best time and I definitely want to go back.
