Financially Fabulous Fashionista
MONEY & FASHION
As I’m finding my way in life one of the big things you need to know how to handle is money! Being a person who is into fashion, a lot of the time we can find ourselves falling into the trap of looking good on the outside but crying on the inside because of the state of our finances.
We get ourselves into debt trying to keep up with the latest trend and scrimp on other things that are important (like eating well, events with friends/family or most importantly paying our bills!) because we have spent all our money. We hang our heads in shame internally whenever we think about it, we don’t like to open letters about our bills or if you’re like I was, you quickly brush over the topic of money and change it to something else when someone asks. That shouldn’t be the case.
A lot of our financial problems are linked with our shopping habits and although we may try to improve periodically, a reason we ourselves sliding back into debts or poor money management is because our shopping habits are just that – habits! And ours are bad.
Habits are things we have learnt to do time and time again until they have become something we do without thinking. Unfortunately, not thinking about or monitoring what we are doing when it comes to shopping and our finances has a greater impact on us than we think.
Just because you want to look stylish doesn’t mean we have to be financially unhealthy and having a healthy financial life doesn’t mean you can’t look stylish doing it. It is all about balance.
In order to keep ourselves in balance, just like we do for our bodies, we have to give ourselves a regular financial health check. It all starts by figuring out where we are, diagnosing the problem areas, treating them, then managing them.
We have to create new habits to make sure we can always be a Financially Fabulous Fashionista.
