Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: Back when I was a teenager (we don’t have to discuss how far back that is exactly), I was OBSESSED with magazines. I loved looking at all the pictures of how celebrities put their outfits together. One particular segment I loved was when they would put together an outfit from head to toe under a certain dollar amount. That’s definitely where my love of putting together great outfits on a dime came together. Today’s guest post, written by Vanessa Wood from Green Acres from Paris, is all about that – putting together an outfit for under Continue reading “Guest Post: Bougie on a Budget – Under $50 Fashion Challenge”
Note from Lifestyle Queen Bee: When I first decided to start this blog, my goal from the very beginning was to monetize it so that it could be a source of passive income for myself. When you’re first starting out, sometimes you don’t have a ton of extra cash (if any at all!) to put into building & growing your blog/business. Not to mention all the research you typically conduct trying to figure out the best platform for your blog, your niche, etc. Today, Guest Maurine Anderson is helping cut all the guesswork out as part of Continue reading “Guest Post: How to Have a Professional Looking Blog on a Low Budget”
This past weekend, my husband & I celebrated our first year of marriage (January 28th). We had a beach wedding in Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) with 40 of our closest friends & family. The day itself went off without a hitch – beautiful weather, delicious food, lots of love and joy – I truly couldn’t have asked for a better day.
While planning a destination can save you significant money, it’s still a lot of work & not knowing what things actually look like until you’re physically there can be a bit overwhelming but I’d recommend it to anyone. Not only do you get to say your vows in a gorgeous setting but you get to make a trip out of it with a group of people!
In today’s post, I’m giving you 10 budget tips I used for my wedding that Continue reading “Bougie On A Budget: 10 Ways to Wow at Your Wedding”
While today is an off day for posting, I’ve decided to put up a special post to review my top 10 posts of 2016 (especially since it is the last day of the year)! The year was full of ups (got married, moved to Toronto, got a new puppy, started my blog) and downs (put my older dog down, left behind family & friends in Ottawa, a vital friendship fell apart), looking back on my first year of blogging not only shows how much I’ve actually accomplished this year but inspires & motivates me to make 2017 even greater!

Can you believe 2017 is just around the corner?! While I’m stunned at how fast this year went by, I’m ready for the next chapter! One of my resolutions for next year is to be smarter with my money & stick to a budget, especially now that I have a blog/business I am looking to transform into my full time gig. While putting my Budget Tracker together, I realized Continue reading “FREE Budget Tracker for Success!”
