Hello my loves! Y’all know that I’m on a serious budget while I’m on my journey towards becoming debt free. But, who’s to say that you can’t have a little fun while tackling your goals?

Are you someone that constantly finds themselves in screwed up dating situations? Are you often put into the friend-zone or fail to get the person you’re in love with to commit?

What’s the key to true happiness? Is it love, wealth, finding your inner peace, or all of the above? Many of us are on our own unique journey in life with regards to seeking and maintaining true happiness. But the truth of the matter is, life isn’t all rainbows, unicorns and sunny days.
