Hey everyone, welcome to Friday’s Sweet Savage Love. I take this time to talk about my favourite link loves for the week and then highlight only the finest cheesy romances that Harlequin has to offer (I love cheesy romances and see no reason not to inflict them on my larger audience).
Check out my favourite blog posts below:
Blonde on a Budget is one of those blogs that I keep coming back to time and time again. Cait, the beauty and brains behind this blog, is always willing to be real in her writing. When she’s not being interesting and informative, she’s writing from the heart and inspiring those who need a reminder that things can get better. Check out her December 30 post The Year I Couldn’t Have Planned For to learn more.
The Frugalwoods always have a fabulously fiscal way of look at the world but while they’re on a break to be with Babywoods, they hosted a guest post from the Mad Fientist. He writes honestly about his rocky road to money mastery in How NOT to Pursue Financial Independence. It’s a great read and is important for anyone who gets a little too single-minded about their goals (God knows I do).
Bridget runs a blog and business, Money After Graduation, and never has there been a more ambitious business tycoon than this woman. I remember vaguely what I did with my twenties and it certainly wasn’t getting my MBA and building an amazing online business to help Millennials with #finlit (I seem to recall copious amounts of beer and too many skipped classes for my twenties). Anyway, Bridget tells us Why You Should Practice Poverty for One Week This Year and it’s a good one. Read it.
Alyssa from Mixed Up Money has paid off $10,000 in debt and is killing it with her master plan to take over her financial world. She likes to keep it short and sweet and writes fun ways to get debt free and save money. I was reading through her blog and came across her post Can You Even Afford That? from early in December. I enjoyed it and I think you will too.
Nourished Net-Worth’s Hannah is a girl after my own heart (I just recently paid off my own $50,000 in student loans!). She’s bent on the total destruction of her $50,000 student loan and has the plan to make it happen (all in 20 months!). Hannah wrote a step by step guide on Finding Your Number – the best place to start paying off your debt is at the beginning.
Romance Book of the Week: Pregnant with a Royal Baby!
Every Sweet Savage Love, I like to include my cheesy romance pick of the week. This little gem will be available February 2016 and I, for one, cannot wait. It promises to deliver everything that cheesy romances should – traditional gender roles dressed up with rose-tinted glasses; stilted, saccharine dialogue and two-dimensional characters; and a completely unrealistic happy-ending. Love. It.
Marrying for the baby’s sake.
Prince Dominic Sancho has always lived up to his family’s royal expectations. Until one irresistibly spontaneous night with teacher Ginny Jones has dramatic repercussions—she’s now carrying the next heir to Xaviera’s throne! There’s only one solution—a royal wedding…
A marriage of convenience is Ginny’s worst nightmare, but for their baby’s sake, she says “I do.” And as the royal couple jet off on their honeymoon, she begins to realize that beneath the royal etiquette, Dominic is a daddy—and loving husband—in the making!
