Cute Clutch

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I can’t believe half the year is already over and we’re welcoming July on this breezy, beautiful day. I wanted to share a couple of recent projects so you can check them out!

First, I am guest posting on one of my favorite blogs, Hello Rigby today! Jenn is busy traveling around France (follow here travel photos on Instagram here), and I’m so thrilled to be guest posting on her site while she’s away! In my post I share 5 Handbags You Need in Your Closet, including a cute clutch like the one shown above. Head on over to Jenn’s blog to see the rest and some of my best handbag tips.

Listen Money Matters interview

Another fun project I wanted to share with you is… I was recently a guest on one of my favorite podcasts, Listen Money Matters! It’s a personal finance podcast and on my episode, This Financial Life: Lindsay, I answer Andrew and Thomas’s questions about everything related to my finances. We recorded via Skype (pictured above) and represented nearly all of the U.S. time zones since Andrew is in New Jersey, Thomas is in Iowa, and I’m in Washington state. I really put myself out there and was very vulnerable in sharing things in the hopes that my experiences, both positive and negative, might help others wading through their own financial messiness. As I’ve said before (here, here), listening to these guys has really instigated change in my relationship with money and I’ve made a lot of positive changes as a result. Since recording this podcast I got an updated credit score and it went up by (gasp!) nearly 100 points! I’m so proud of the work I’ve been doing financially and owe a debt of gratitude to Andrew, Thomas, and LMM for their inspiration (get it, debt of gratitude? ha!). You can listen to the full podcast here or download it through iTunes, Stitcher or wherever you get your podcasts.
