MY MONEY WEEKLY CHECK UP

This past week is been really busy on work field and I had also a last minute job interview in Rome (finger crossed for the next 15 days)seriously I'm quiet sure I'm not be able to live in this city but I must to say every time I spend some hours here I feel totally in love for it if is called The eternal City there is a good reason right?
Unluckily this past week I hadn't coffee date with friends but we can count coffee with Reverend's wife me and her are organizng a lovely Garage sale for 12th of November and we'll make some DIY Christmas ornaments with the help of Reverend's daughter...I found simple ideas from Christmas village into Flower shop....then I went to Chinese shop to buy material they have almost everything...However on Sunday morning wakeup isn't been really good infact there is been earthquake not so far from my hometown... I'm really sorry but honestly sometimes I think that It is the nature that is sending messages to men...but this is…

FASHION ON A BUDGET

I'm a woman that loves fashion and also if I am on a budget I love saw on fashion magazines and web some interesting suggestions about outfits,...Since I have a budget to respect I noticed how I usually bought cloothes on boring days maybe I've boughts clothes without wear them once so every 3-4 months I do a serious declutter in my wardrobe....when I am tempted to buy something new first I ask if that items is in my approved shopping ist then if It can be combo with items I already have how much hours I must to work to afford it and if I can re-use several times and then I try to wait 24 hours before to buy.... I am not always good and sometimes I buy without asking nothing (especially in bookstore books are a serious temptations for me)....
In the latest issue of Cosmopolitan there is a fashion article about outfits for the office from monday till friiday and honestly I'm already oin ove for them but I tried to find low cost version of some of them... BONPRIX and H&M

GROUPON DEALS

Finally I found time to sit and write my lovely snail mail to my pen pals ( yes I still use snail mail), I know that email are quickly but there is something special into receive and send a REAL letter, if Calligraphy courses are so interesting there is a reason right? 
Well I was having a coffee date with a friend of mine and we're talking about how is hard to find a nice gift when you are on a budget... but during our conversation I was thinking that coupons are always a nice choices but at the same time I was thinking that maybe in my hometown there aren't so many offers, well it was absolutely wrong!
I've, searched GROUPON and did a research into my hometown, I found great ideas, perfect also if you havent so many money to spend... If you work in a office usually you soend a lot of time with colleagues and this is a nice idea on a budget there is  a coupon for coffee, hug, travel together...isn't a great suggestion...
I always said that I wanted to take a day in a SPA…

MY MONEY WEEKLY CHECK UP

This past week is been busy on several fields but I'm happy about it, I noticed that more I'm busy  less I'm tempted to spend money, one because in the evening I'm so tired that the only thing I'm going to do is put my pajama on and relax... while when I have more free time before my appointments I spend time thinnking if I need or want a thing and not always I'm so good on resist to implusive shopping...
As I said I've read all Calendar girl books ad my favorite are been the last two, but honestly there is been nothing more or nothing less of what I expected, but I'm not going to keep them, but so this time I can judge and say my opinion about it, while when I've said that I'm not be interested on 50th shades of grey without having read a single word or watched movie, most friend said that I cannot jusge soemthing without having watched/read it, so this time I read and I can say I'm not a big fan of this kind of book sorry!
in my church we…

MY WEEK IN PICS

I've started myresearch of perfect Christmas gifts, ok I must to say that I am not a big fan of Halloween, but I love see kids with their costumes and this year I have also a special birthday of a friend of mine, believe me isn't so easy to find the perfect gift, so I did a selection of some sites like: troppotogo, Goolp, they are really interesting and you can find ideas from tiny to large pockets...
However I must to say this week is been really busy on several fields, so I decided to stay at home during weeknights, I had time to  read some books and I have other to read, plus I am trying to eat healty and vegetarian more often is possible, but if I am guest in other house don't say nothing and I accept every food I have in the plate, unless lamb, rabbit, sheep...I always had serious problems to eat these but I am slowly eliminating meat from my diet....and if you read "Esther the wonder pig" you will start to think that isn't right to eat animals (but to be…

OPEN HOUSE DAY: TIPS FOR REALTORS

Ok you decided to sell your house, ask professional help, followed all suggestion, so you decluttered your home and did a great home staging, now that your house is on the market , realtor suggested you to have at least one Open house day...in that day you will be away from your home, so your Ears will not hear critics....
But I must to say not all realtors are prepared to this kind of event, usually what do you imagine at open house? Nice place, good food and drinks, plus materials and last but not least realtor business card....well I can say that I attended some Open house where there was, absolutely nothing and if you are doing a serious research, you aren't seeing only one house at time, but several so taking informations (aka bringing depliants and business card) are really helpful....Maybe that could be your ideal house, but in the same week you visited other 5 and you have informations about alls except It, maybe you have a great memory, but I tend to have materials and rea…

On friday I had a cofee date with my friend Samantha, I've spent my saturday with family and sunday afternoon with my friend Claudia in the little village of Miranda, I like this tiny village but organization wasn't so good, however it was a sunny and warm day, plus I met again a friend from university and we're going to have a dinner before Christmas...
Ok I must to admit I love Christmas while I'm not a big fan of Halloween but I like pumpkin and probably I'll attend an Halloween party in the end of the month, I'm trying to try new things...However I'm using web to take notes for nice gift ideas and not only for Christmas but also for birthdays!!!

This past week is been really good and I'm glad I limited my eating out at twice per week, Infact I've ate ot during movie night with my friend Claudia and yesterday during my day trip in Rome, a little break was an absolutely need for me...plus I used part of that time to meet a friend of mine, we talked a lot, next time I am going to spend more hours in Rome...visiting other things and places...
I've opted for a lunch alone into RoadHouse grill into Termini's Station and at the beginning seemed that most people ere watching me because I was a woman ALONE in a restauran, I didn't saw he problem so I ordered a Extra cheese burger with french fries and a chocolate fondant with caramel and salted butter (heaven in my mouth)....I adored every single bite but next time I'm going to try a veggie recipe...but that fondant is a magic in your mouth:P

HOUSE HUNTING: OPEN HOUSE TIPS FOR HOMEOWNER

Ok you followed every single tips and suggestion of your realtor, attended some Open house and reorganized spaces in your home to have a good first impression on potential clients....Good but sometimes there are things that is better don't hear, see, say...
If you are like me so you have pets, is normal that you decide to keep them in the house, well it isn't wrong but most people are afraid for their kids (I have an opinion about it but is better to say NO COMMENT), or maybe they are allergic, Sometimes is the pet that could attack client so is better for that day do a long walk in the park, ask to your parents or friends to keep your pets in their home...
KEEP THE HOUSE CLEAN: If you have decluttered and reorganized your home, cleaning time become more easy and enter in a clean house, is a better welcome that put your foot in a dirty house or not? If you ever seen an episode of Buying & Selling you noticed that also Scott brother say Keep the house so (aka clean and organi…
