Welcome back to another exciting edition of Sweet Savage Love. Below are my favourite posts from this week and below that is the best romance book for this week. So check out my link love and then check out sin in a Stetson below that:
Sweet Savage Link Love
Frugal Rules’ John shows us we can have courage and make conscious decisions in his article A Plan of Attack for Fighting Fear & Money. He decided to get over his fear of heights so he could enjoy his trip to Las Vegas and he says we can do the same with money.
Stefanie from the aptly name StefanieOconnell.com broadened my horizons with her “Yes, and…Your Life” post about either/or thinking. She didn’t settle for being a broke artist OR stuck at a passionless job making lots of money – she did both (followed her passion and made good money). Welcome to the grey area, folks.
Matt tells us How to Prepare for Any Big Financial Change on MomandDadMoney.com. In it, he talks about planning what your budget is likely to be post-change and then trying to live on it before you have too. It’s great advice and I plan to put it to good use for my upcoming move.
BudgetandtheBeach.com talks about the downside of side-hustling (part-time or odd jobs) in Addicted to Side-Hustling. It’s great to make extra money but it can turn even the best of us into serious killjoys if that’s all we think about. Knowing is half the battle, Yo Joe!*
And last but not least, Broke Millenial shared her experiences with her first New York jobs in “2% or Skim?” and Other Inane Questions I Asked to Earn a Living. I can relate to most of those questions – my career at Starbucks was nasty, brutish and short (thank Hobbes for that reference). It was mostly my fault but still…
Cheesy Romance Selection: Her Sexy Vegas Cowboy
God, this one looks fabulous. ‘Nuff said. Who ever said that cowboys and Vegas couldn’t go together like….<insert suggestive innuendo here>… clearly hasn’t read this book.
For most women, going to a friend’s bachelorette party in Vegas is the ultimate gals’ weekend. Jessica Gainey is not most women. She’s an introverted worrywart, and the Sunset Strip is not her idea of a good time. But it’s rodeo weekend, and the town is crawling with seriously hot cowboys…none more wickedly sexy than Aaron Weathers.
He’s Texas. She’s New York. Still, Jessica can’t stop fantasizing about that ripped cowboy bod. So for one weekend, she throws caution to the wind to be a wild and daring version of herself before returning to a life where men can’t be trusted and love is a four-letter word. Except that in Vegas, even the greatest odds can have unbelievable—and thoroughly satisfying—payouts!
See ya’ll next week
*For my Millenial darlings, that’s an 80’s pop culture reference to a cartoon called G.I. Joe
