friday favorites: resolutions and winter solutions

so i have a budget now. {seriously} it was a new years resolution for my husband and i to start saving money. he has a budget too. except he doesn't really keep track of it. the only thing is if we want to purchase high-ticket items we have to save our $$. it's really a great idea for a shopaholic like me. not only do i curb my spending, but i end up buying things i really really want, guilt-free. it's my new favorite guilt-free within-a-budget past-time.

so some favorites for the week:
• $4 old navy black knit scarf. it's super long and tight-knit so it's warm and toasty in the office.
• imogen heap. can't. stop. listening. if you haven't checked her out by now then you truly don't value my opinion. {and you will have bad luck for 3 years if you don't tell 10 friends about her}
• red hot chili peppers 'stadium archadium' cd. heather over @ 4 sweet peas mentioned this last week and i have to agree. i love this album. thanks to rich.
• brush-on bronzer beads from BodyShop. absolutely love my new $3 sale find. it gives me that not-so-dead look that my skin craves in the winter.
• accomplishment. i'm nearly done with a friend's website. {and it inspired me with ideas for my own} wa-hoo.
• borrowing: lent snow pants for this weekend saves me big money on something i would never use.
