City Chic 2E: The Modern Girl's Guide to Living Large on Less is a must have read for a beauty at this moment in our time. I'm really blessed that right now I'm able to cut back on certain items, but still able to splurge on what I truly love. I'm forever grateful.
Nina is the editor-in-chief of Budget Travel and Girlfriend Getaways (my favorite) so if she can teach me how to snag a deal at five-star resorts I know she can help you live large on less. She has a guide on finding the best deals for home, travel, and clothing. I have the first edition and the second is a lot more comprehensive. It also includes recipes which is great because everyone should know how to fix something fabulous to eat on a budget.
My personal shopping motto for 2009 is buy what I love.
