SAVE MONEY IN STYLE.

Hey guys what is up?! First of all HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I wish you all the best for 2017 and let this year be the year for success. My life has literally changed around in like a day. I’ve passed my matric year with a high pass, I’ve found a job and I’m currently trying to act like an adult.

I’ve recently been introduced to a company called Earnest which is a group of people of many expertise who’s goal is make credit more accessible by reducing the costs and barriers faced by millions of financially responsible people.They asked me to share with you a money saving guide along with to highlight the importance of understanding your financials! We did just start a new year so I thought this would be amazing for setting goals and trying out new things.

I feel like 2017 is going to be LIT (yes, I used that word) and in order for us to get everything out of it we need to keep our financials in check.

Money makes the world go round so it is very important that you know where your money goes and what you do with it. Understanding your money means saving more and using your money wisely. Because if you know your financials then you know what to avoid, what not to do and how to use your money to the best of you.

Also, if you know your financials then it’s easier for you to set goals and see where your money goes. And instead of trying to buy the whole world, you know what you can afford, why its best not to spend on something and what the bigger goal is.

When Earnest approached me they asked me to set 4 goals for 4 quarters of the year and here’s what I came up with…
1. To have money saved up for the end of year(Christmas)
2. To have money to pay for my part time studies.
3. To have an aside budget  each month that I can splurge on other things like makeup and fashion.
4. To have an aside budget for emergencies.

Earnest then went out to make me some cards to help guide all the goals. And here they are.

Basically all these cards have my goals and things that I could cut down on to save better for the goals and to make sure I achieve those goals. They are also very nice because they do send them individually and you could print them and for each quarter put them up somewhere where you could see them everyday.

Reason for me showing you guys this is because I want this year to be a year where we can all look back and say “Yah this was the year!” and not only to say this but to also have the proof in our bank accounts to show for it.

Anyway thank you so much for reading and please do go and check out Earnest’s website because they’ve got a whole lot of information on many aspects of that can affect your finances, like personal and student loans, and tips. If you check them out, I think it will help you so much for any financial goals that you have plus you can even refinance your sudent loans there to save thousands off your debt.

 HOW TO BE HAPPY THIS 2017.

Hey guys what is up?! Firstly HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!If you are reading this then I’d like us both (me and you) to thank God that we’re still both alive and I wish you all the best for 2017. Let this be your year. So yes I know collabmas is over but today I have another collaboration just to kick start the year. I am collaborating with Jessytee and we have decided to help you guys with the upcoming year. 

So I’ve decide to help you be happy and have no worries. HOW TO BE HAPPY THIS YEAR.

1. Speak your mind.

I always used to hear that people who spoke their mind were much more happier and that couldn’t be much truer because if you speak your mind then you’re always worriless. You’re not holding any grudges and your mind is free. So this year learn to speak your mind and say what you want because then you’re free and you get to be who you are and people learn to see that person. 

2. It’s okay to cry.

Most of us feel like we always have to be strong and not show people our weaknesses but that’s not the case. This year learn to let people know of how you feel and don’t bottle up things because that means bringing stress and sickness. And when I say it’s okay to cru, I don’t mean actually crying but letting your emotions fall through and letting people actually see that side of you.

3. You don’t have to please anyone
I know sometimes you feel like you have to suck up to people just because they are whoever they are but trust me you don’t. We are all human and the sooner you accept that then the sooner you can go out and know that the next person is as much a human as you are.

4. Have fun

Fun doesn’t have to be going out with people and doing alcohol abuse, fun could be anything. Tell yourself that it’s okay to do fun things once in a while and that you don’t have to stay at home doing nothing. So go out with your friends or invite friends over and have a laugh. Also go to the fun, don’t wait for the fun to come to you.

5. Don’t expect anything.

If you don’t expect anything then you don’t get disappointed so teach yourself to not expect anything. Or if you do then expect the least because expecting the most is setting yourself up for sadness and dissapointment because you might not get anything. So live a life of non expectancy and a suprise when you do get something.

Okay so I’ve set up 5 things to make sure your 2017 is lit,I can come up with more and I’m sure Jessy Tee can too. Please go check out Jessytee’ post on her blog, she has a post on how to slay 2017 physically and emotionally. Also add her on instagram @jessyteee_ she’s such an amazing person. I’d also like to thank her for agreeing to collaborate, it’s been really great and I’d really love to make friends with her.
