This post was sponsored by Uncommon Goods. Hello readers, the year’s last call isn’t rushing you too much, is it? I usually try to start early when it comes to gift-giving because I have to figure out how much money I have, and I like searching for that perfect present for everyone. With all of the extra holiday activities though, it never seems to be … Continue reading Uncommon Goods Gift Guide

A while ago, Julie wrote a post about what was annoying her at the moment, and I think I’m going to have to borrow the idea. She had a list of things, but I’m going to rant about different types of one thing: those little, cutesy, Pinterest-able phrases. Now, if “Just keep swimming” or whatever honestly motivates you, fine. My problem is when these simplistic … Continue reading What I Hate… Right Now
Is it just me or is it easier to spend money when you don’t have it? LOL. Or at least daydream about spending it. Then when I get money, I really got to prioritize what I actually want to spend it on… Now that I have a little birthday money, I have the chance to buy something fun, but I do have to figure out which things make … Continue reading Spring Wishlist

Earlier this month I signed up for Ashley and Dean‘s Sweet Progress Summer Box Swap. I’ve never participated in a swap before but felt comfortable enough with this blog to start. I must have imagined something about YouTube in their posts because I decided to make an unboxing video since I haven’t made a video before either. To be honest, I’m very nervous about it? But frick it, … Continue reading Sweet Progress Box Swap!

My handle is _hariharian on Twitter/Insta and hariharian on Pinterest. So you know how these things work.

I watch genealogy tv shows like people watch sports. I’m yelling “Do the DNA tests! Take their spit!” at screen-Henry Louis Gates Jr. I’m so excited. While tracing one’s family can be totally privileged– money, war, genocide and more can sever branches– it’s utterly fascinating how these genealogists can find such information, know where to look, put it in historical context, etc. I’ve really no idea if I’ll ever … Continue reading Genealogical Vacation
There are two big shows coming to my city that I really want to attend. But big shows = big $$$ , am I right? Amazingly, the ticket venue is having an July 4th sale, but I still want to offset any costs as much as possible. How will I do it? Online surveys! By no means will you get rich doing them, but they can definitely help … Continue reading A Little Online Ca$h
