About Casey


My three true loves: Frenchie puppies, posing in sunglasses, and pouting in a tutu

After successfully getting a job, an apartment, and graduating college all within a week and a half, you’d think I would be floating on a tequila-infused Cloud Nine. And I was… until I received quite possibly the worst piece of news in my 22 years on this planet. I was being cut off. Yes, that’s right. Mommy and Daddy, in a combined effort to push me to an emotional breakdown, snipped the purse strings.  At first, I screamed and cried about how they could let their daughter live in poverty.  Apparently, my fits of hysteria no longer held any sway. So now I write this as an employed, bill-paying, bargain-hunting “adult” who is allowance-free for the first time, well, ever.

I know what you may be thinking… Casey, we all have to grow up and no one likes a whiner. And you’re right. It’s time to stop wistfully dreaming of my formerly spoiled life. I want to learn and share with you what it means to grow up. When I was 15, I dreamed of living and working as a 20-something in New York City. Now it’s time to learn how to live the life of my dreams on a realistic budget. From fashion finds to recipes to DIY crafts and more, these are my champagne dreams on a boxed wine budget. If that means switching from Veuve Clicquot to Franzia, so be it. I’m sure we can find a great sangria recipe along the way.
