Kering to Double Budget of Its Corporate Foundation

PARIS – Kering chairman and chief executive officer François-Henri Pinault had an early Christmas present for staff at the Kering Foundation, telling guests at a party celebrating the institution’s 10th anniversary that he had decided to double its budget from next year.
Pinault, who is also chairman of the Kering Foundation, had gathered top executives – including the CEOs of Saint Laurent, Balenciaga and Pomellato – at the group’s headquarters in Paris to mark the first decade of its effort to combat violence against women, though he said it was too early to jubilate.
“I hope one day we will be able to finally celebrate the total eradication of this scourge, but we’re not at that stage yet and there is much left to do. There are still far too many victims of violence. These victims come from all backgrounds: They are on the other side of the world, but they are also across the hall,” he said.
The foundation’s budget will increase to 2 million euros per year, according to Kering officials.
Noting that one in three women worldwide are victims of violence, Pinault said the organization would use some of the additional funds to expand its prevention efforts. As an example, it

Emmanuel Macron Under Fire For Flamboyant Makeup Budget

KEEPING UP APPEARANCES: Not one for sartorial extravagance, when it comes to his wardrobe French President Emmanuel Macron has a go-to uniform of affordable, off-the-rack navy suits by Jonas et Cie. But when it comes to the budget for perfecting his complexion for official engagements, the young leader in his first three months on the job has taken a less modest approach, according to reports in French media.
Local makeup artist Natacha M. submitted invoices totaling 26,000 euros to the general secretariat of the presidency covering her services to Macron for the period, according to a report in Le Point, a weekly magazine covering politics and news.
A spokeswoman for Macron told WWD that the information relayed by Le Point corresponded to “an urgent situation” following the president’s arrival at the Élysée Palace.
“We are putting into place a long-term set-up that will be significantly less expensive than these bills, and less expensive than the system in place during previous presidential terms,” she said.
According to reports, Macron’s predecessor, the thin-haired François Hollande, is said to have paid his makeup artist and hairdresser a monthly net salary of 6,000 euros and 10,000 euros, respectively.
The negative buzz comes as Macron faces a dramatic slump in ratings countrywide since being elected in

White House Budget Director Says Single Moms Shouldn’t Have To Pay For PBS

The White House’s budget director justified proposed cuts to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting by saying that it’s not fair to ask a “single mom in Detroit” or a “coal miner” to pay for it.

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting funds PBS, which airs “Sesame Street,” the incredibly popular children’s program. President Donald Trump’s federal budget plan, released on Thursday morning, proposes axing federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, as well as the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. 

“When you start looking at places that we reduce spending, one of the questions we asked was can we really continue to ask a coal miner in West Virginia or a single mom in Detroit to pay for these programs? The answer was no,” Mick Mulvaney told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday. “We can ask them to pay for defense, and we will, but we can’t ask them to continue to pay for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.”

The Trump administration plans to increase military spending by $ 54 billion. In comparison, the CPB receives less than $ 500,000 per year from the federal government.

The notion that people’s tax dollars shouldn’t be spent on programs they don’t use is confusing enough; by that logic, the taxes from people without children wouldn’t go toward public schools and people who drive to work wouldn’t pay for public transportation. But Mulvaney’s comment is especially bizarre considering how popular “Sesame Street” is among children and parents.

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was chastised during the 2012 election for proposing cutting PBS’ funding

The 3 Crazy Easy Steps To Creating Your Wedding Budget

For BRIDES, by Katie James.

Here’s how to plan the wedding of your dreams — without going into debt.

Your wedding will likely be the biggest party you’ve ever hosted — and the priciest. The average U.S. wedding costs $ 26,522 for 135 guests, according to the 2016 Brides American Wedding Study. Nearly half of couples cover the entire expense themselves, while an additional 25 percent pay for at least part of it. But here’s the kicker: One in three couples goes over budget! Make sure you’re not one of them by setting a realistic wedding budget — before you start fantasizing about venues in Italy, booking expensive vendors, or trying on designer dresses.

To make a wedding budget, you’ll need to tally up your savings, maintain a detailed spreadsheet so you don’t go over during the planning process, prepare for unexpected costs, as well as make meaningful cuts if you do exceed your total budget. It’s hard work, we know, but putting in the time and energy now ensures you’ll live happily ever after (wedding-debt free).

Step 1: Count Your Cash

How much you have to spend on the wedding is directly proportional to three sources of money: you and your fiancé’s individual savings; the amount you can set aside from your current income; plus any contributions from parents or loved ones. Here’s how to approach each:

Your savings: This isn’t as simple as checking your bank account. Ideally, you and your partner each have three months of living expenses set aside in case of a job loss or health setback (separate from retirement funds). Subtract that in-case-of-emergency amount from your total balance in the bank, and that’s how much you could put toward wedding costs.

Your monthly income: After you’ve made payments for existing debts, like student loans, set aside up to 10 percent of your earnings each month. “Establish direct deposits into a separate account for wedding expenses so it isn’t just leftovers that get saved,” says Erin Lowry, a personal-finance expert and the author of Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together.

Any contributions from your parents: “Never assume your parents or other loved ones are willing and able to help cover the cost of a wedding,” says Lowry. “But it certainly doesn’t hurt to ask.”

Step 2: Track Your Spending

Create a spreadsheet with three expense columns: Estimated, Modified, and Actual. Amounts under Estimated will be driven by research of costs in your area (check sites like Weddingwire and Thumbtack to find local averages for venues and vendors), proposals from the vendors you choose will go in Modified, and the final amount you pay them will go in Actual.

Adjust your estimates after calling in vendors’ costs. Start with the venue because it’s the biggest piece of the wedding pie and a major factor in determining guest count. When vendors give you estimates, verify if tax is included. If not, do the math yourself with state and local tax rates to adjust the proposal.

Add a column for the estimated tip. Write “included” if gratuity is factored into the vendor’s price. (For example, caterers automatically tack on 15 to 20 percent of the total, which you pay in advance.)

Add a line item called Extras that equals 15 percent of your total budget to cushion for things you’ll likely forget (invitation postage, parking valets) or won’t anticipate in advance (corkage and plating fees). Never spend this money up front; you’ll need it throughout the planning process as incidentals arise. Trust.

Step 3: Prepare for Surprises

Before you sign on the dotted line of vendor contracts or start buying gift bag items, read the fine print, because expenses that seem small early on could add up quickly. If the total of the line item isn’t in your overall budget, cut it!

Vendor Transportation: Hiring an out-of-town band or photographer? You might need to pay for a rental van or plane tickets. Double-check the contract to see what exactly is covered.

Set-Up And Breakdown Fees: Cleanup isn’t always included, and you may have to pay overtime rates depending on what time your reception ends.

Custom Cocktails: Signature drinks and spirits can add $ 3,500 to a 200-person wedding, says Calder Clark, a top wedding planner in Charleston, South Carolina.

Digital Access: Some photographers charge as much as $ 1,200 to view and share your photos online.

Envelope Stuffing: Some stationers charge as much as $ 7 per invite. To save, call your bridesmaids over, drink some wine, and DIY instead.

Planners: A full-service event designer can charge as much as $ 25,000 or even 20 percent of the total budget for a Kardashian-scale affair, but a day-of coordinator costs an average of $ 1,500. Before you enlist a pro, know what you have to spend and factor in that rate.

Budget Host Inn in Columbia,MO Receive Tribute & Healthcare Assisttance By Charles Myrick Of ACRX

American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

Wedding Planning: How To Plan Your Dream Wedding – The Ultimate Guide To Planning An Affordable, Beautiful Wedding On A Budget (Wedding, Wedding Ideas Decorations, Wedding Budget)

Planning a Wedding on a Budget

Should a dream wedding mean delaying a down payment on a home? That’s a tradeoff many couples make these days.

The Knot, a wedding planning and publishing company, recently released its Real Weddings study of average wedding costs for 2014, setting a national average price tag of $ 31,213 (not including the honeymoon). If the average cost of a U.S. wedding now tops $ 30,000, that’s a substantial sum for many couples to balance against other major financial goals. Despite getting married to my wife at family home 15 years ago, I still remember the sticker shock for all the wedding costs — a whopping $ 15,000 for the entire event from tux, dress, flowers, food and honeymoon.

Consider that the average price of a new home in America is now $ 200,000. A 20 percent down payment on that home would be $ 40,000. With the average price of a new vehicle at $ 32,500 and the average used car around $ 16,000, couples with on-road transportation needs might be tempted to trade in a wedding fund to replace one car — or two.

Couples can save considerable money through creative scheduling, direct planning and most important, treating their wedding as just one of many financial issues they’ll navigate in a lifetime. That’s why they might want to consider a little financial planning before the wedding planning starts.

At minimum, couples might begin with a first-time or repeat viewing of their current spending and credit status. A meeting with a qualified financial advisor can provide additional guidance on how the couple could handle all their money issues after marriage. Such big-picture financial advice might set a more realistic framework for wedding planning. After all, The Knot reports that more than half of weddings go over budget.

How can you keep it cheap while still enjoying an event of a lifetime? Here are some ideas:

Marry off-season. The most popular wedding months are now June and October, with longtime leader June losing a bit of ground. The most popular day to get married is Saturday and nighttime is the most competitive time slot for receptions. Consider a January wedding when the post-holiday rush is over — cold weather wedding venues are generally empty and priced to move. Weekday weddings have the potential added bonus of guests drinking less on a work night and weekend brunch weddings can be served buffet-style with more reasonably priced menu choices.

Consider alternative venues. Farms, barns, warehouses, art galleries and of course, family property can be cheaper venues for a wedding, but don’t stop your due diligence at catering issues. Insurance is a big issue — liability related to alcohol, food or other party-related risks may not be covered in the owner’s conventional homeowners or business coverage and the event may require the purchase of a special policy for the night of the event. Also, in many communities, party venues must be properly licensed and/or zoned to avoid fines or legal action.

Watch the extras. From flowers to photography, wedding cake to wedding planners, look for affordable options. If a venue will let you supply your own flowers and decorations, plan far enough in advance to comparison shop and do your own pick-up and set-up if possible. Consider professional photographers or skilled amateurs who meet your tastes and budget.

Consider an alternative online gift registry. You don’t have to settle for three of the same toasters anymore. Today’s couples can set up online gift registries that allow guests to directly fund honeymoon trips or specific expenses associated with the wedding.

Become your own wedding planner. If you are very organized and adept at pricing, negotiating and setting up all venue, food, service and entertainment aspects of your wedding, you’ll see significant savings. Just don’t let the workload overwhelm your big day.

Plan a destination wedding. If you have a tight-knit group of friends and family members who can afford to travel — or if you can pick up everyone’s bill — a destination wedding might turn out to be significantly cheaper option than an in-town wedding with dozens of guests, per-plate dining and entertainment. Resorts around the world and well-known domestic wedding/travel destinations like Las Vegas or Hawaii offer wedding packages that blend a ceremony and vacation getaway.

Be flexible. Spur-of-the-moment decisions may save money. If you have a venue in mind, put your name on a call list and see if you can negotiate a cheaper price if the venue has a cancellation.

Bottom line: As weddings get more expensive, searching for bargains and untraditional venues and services can help couples who don’t want their celebration to overwhelm other important financial goals like buying their first home.

Modern Lifestyles: Tips for Travelling on a Budget

Modern Lifestyles: Tips for Travelling on a Budget


ABOUT THE BOOK We’ve all read stories about adventurous travelers who backpacked across the Himalayas and slept in the wilds every night. Or perhaps you know someone who traipsed through Europe in their youth, staying in dorm-like hostels and eating only bread and cheese for months at a time. These stories are entertaining to read about, but it’s not always fun to travel this way. It’s risky and can even be dangerous, especially if you’re completely alone and in need of assistance at some point. In addition, most of us don’t really want to experience the adventures of travel if we’re going to be constantly worried about where our next meal is coming from or how we’re going to be able to afford a motel room that night. The good news is that you can have gypsy feet without living like a gypsy. Thanks to competitive pricing within the travel industry, air fares and hotel accommodations can easily be found at cut-rate prices. Discount railway tickets and car rental rates are also available for those who have the patience to do a little bargain hunting, and half-price coupons for resort attractions are featured on hundreds of websites. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK During shoulder-season months, plane fares are discounted and hotel and motel rates are lower as well. In addition, many local restaurants offer two-for-one deals during the off-season, and tourist attractions offer discounted tickets and two-for-one passes. Once you choose your destination, find out when the off-season is, and if possible, plan to travel during those months. You’ll not only save a great deal of money; you’ll also save time, and wear and tear by not having to stand in line for attractions. If the weather cooperates, resort towns can be a lot of fun during shoulder-season months because you’ll get a better opportunity to experience the town in the same way that the locals do. By not having to fight high-season crowds, you’ll also be able to enjoy a more peaceful, leisurely vacation. Traveling of

5 Ways to Cut Costs on Your Wedding Flower Budget

Flowers seem to be one of the most frustrating items for brides and grooms to contemplate ordering and paying for during the wedding process. To be fair, unless you’ve been through a wedding flower order before, the cost can be surprising at first glance. But then you have to take a lot of different things into account.

Your flower selection, your wedding location, and the time of year will all come into play when you create your wedding décor budget. I recently laughed when I read another wedding planner’s comment in an article where she said “yeah, sure, you can have hundreds of individual orchid blossoms (real or fake) hanging from your reception venue ceiling. But you have to pay somebody to string all of those, hang all the individual blooms, and then take it all down again the next day.” Exactly. There’s labor involved.0

Reality check, right? But it’s true. Lots of the complicated decors featured in bridal magazines are staged sets – or they’re from “platinum” weddings. I’ve had some brides with decent budgets, but I’ve never had the pleasure of planning on an unlimited budget. And that’s what you have to have if you want to recreate some of the pictures brides and grooms are finding today on wedding websites and Pinterest and Instagram. Don’t forget Lover-ly, as if Pinterest didn’t offer enough torturous ideas for wedding planners.

Here are some ideas to help you choose bouquets and centerpieces that won’t end up costing as much as a new car:

1) Consider flowers that do not require a lot of hand-wiring and special work in order to be used in a bouquet. Those cascading bouquets with Stephanotis blooms hanging off the ivy are lovely, but they didn’t grow that way. Somebody has to wire or tape each individual bloom. And let’s talk about orchids – if you know what they look like on the stem, you know each individual bloom only has a maximum of a two inch stem. In order to put them in bouquets, each bloom has to be put into a water tube and fixed onto a faux stem that can then be incorporated into the bouquet in a manner that you cannot tell those stems aren’t real. Choosing flowers with legitimate stems – like roses, lilies, calla lilies, Gerbera daisies and many, many more – can seriously reduce your bouquet budget.

2) Simple and elegant trumps overdone any day of the week, and if you’re getting married someplace that is already beautiful, you do not need large floral centerpieces.
True life: Your guests hate them. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cringed watching a wobbly groomsmen remove a centerpiece so he can see the people on the other side of the table. Candles, hurricane vases, lanterns and many other things can cost you a lot less than flowers. But you can also have some flowers on your table to give you pops of color without doing massive arrangements. Consider using three different heights of cylinder vase with three individual stems of gorgeous calla lilies or orchids.

3) You can have flowers on the table without using them in centerpieces. Consider tying one simple orchid blossom to each napkin, or stuffing the bottom of a hurricane vases with vibrant rose petals as a nest for a pillar candle. Sometimes just sprinkling petals can give a rich look to things with candlelight.

4) Remember that if you choose flowers that aren’t happy in the climate you’re getting married in (or it’s totally the wrong time of year for them everywhere), you won’t be able to re-use the bouquets in your décor because they will likely be dead. If you choose flowers that thrive in your area and in that climate, you can put those bouquets on the cake table or guest book table and they’ll look gorgeous all night. They shouldn’t even need to be in vases – they look much prettier displayed laying on their sides. If you use hydrangea, or tulips, or peonies, for example, or something else that is extremely heat sensitive, it’s likely dying by the time your photos finish and won’t look pretty on display at the reception.

5) Limiting the variety of flowers you use for your bridal party and décor will reduce the cost.
It’s more extreme for a remote location that has to bring in your flowers in bulk – but really, any décor plan involving nine different kinds of flowers is simply going to cost more than sticking to several specific blooms. I’m not saying you shouldn’t have variety, but be aware that variety may cause a little sticker shock as the supplier charges more for smaller quantities to the florist creating your bouquets and centerpieces.

Finally, keep in mind that your wedding ceremony itself isn’t going to last 30 minutes. Whatever you’re spending on décor for that short time period costs you a lot considering how long you won’t be seeing it. The most beautiful thing at the wedding is supposed to be the bride. While I’m a fan of rose petal aisles and special chair décor, huge arches and canopies dripping in expensive flowers cost an arm and a leg – sometimes more than all the bridal bouquets combined. Think carefully about how many flowers you really need at your actual wedding ceremony. You and your bridesmaids are already holding armfuls.

Until next time, happy wedding planning from Weddings in Vieques and Sandy Malone Weddings & Events!

5 Detailed Tips for Managing Your Wedding Budget From Day One

There are ways to plan your wedding, and your wedding budget, in a way that will help you spend what you intended to spend IF you approach things the right way from the very beginning. However, if you get engaged and decide you’re going to throw an extravagant wedding and tell everybody about it before you’ve fully researched your plan, you may find yourself either in over-your-head, or embarrassed when you have to change the plans.

It’s best to keep your wedding plans close to the vest until your major contracts are signed and you’re ready to mail out the Save-the-Dates. That way, if you decide it’s too much money to invite all 150 people on your guest list, or if your parents don’t end up contributing as much as you were counting on, you can still change the big plan before you’re overcommitted.

And it must be said that no matter how well-planned a wedding budget you have, you must be prepared for overages. What that means is that you need to fight the urge to spend money on unnecessary items until you decide you have plenty of money for all the mandatory stuff. That includes things like buying a second wedding gown for the reception, crazy lighting and bringing in a professional photo booth for the guestbook. All of that stuff you’re doing on the side adds up and takes away from your personal financial padding that you might need for those extra things that pop up at the end with a wedding. Like those extra 20 guests you never thought would accept your invitation. It happens.

Since I’ve spent so much time preaching that you can stay on budget, I’m going to give brides and grooms five really detailed tips here that you should seriously take to heart as you start your planning, and before you’ve started signing away your life and ordering invitations. Once you’ve let that horse out of the barn, it’s really hard to put it back without feeling humiliated or losing money. Better to start off on the right foot.

First, make your guest list. You cannot choose your wedding venue and budget before you know how many people you are inviting. You can’t work backwards like “let’s see what we’re have to spend and then decide who to invite.” Budget planning doesn’t work that way. You need 1) an actual invitation list, and 2) a guestimate of attendees to start with so your planner or vendors can give you numbers.

Second, decide where you’re getting married. Research the destination and your wedding planning options. Discuss a budget with an experience professional wedding planner (including the planning fee) and decide if you can afford it. If you are hearing budget estimates double what you were planning or are able to spend, stop right there and find a different destination.

Hint: Finding a less experienced planner who will promise you that she can plan it for half the money is stupid if somebody with years of experience gave you their best guestimate. We have no motive to lie to you. We want you to hire us. But we have a professional reputation that prevents us from accepting clients who can’t afford the wedding they describe during consultation.

Third, the first thing to choose is your venue after you’ve nailed down your destination. It will determine your catering (in-house or outside caterer), your accommodations and your overall game plan.

Fourth, choose your food and beverages. Your biggest number in your wedding planning is the food and beverage cost for your wedding reception, and also for any other catered affairs you may be having (welcome parties, rehearsal dinners, beach parties or brunches). Choose your menus and get your bids as early as you can so you can set the money aside in the budget. It might turn out that you can’t do that day-after brunch, so don’t tell everybody you’re hosting it until you have the numbers pinned down.

Fifth and most importantly, make smart decisions as you hire all your other vendors. I’m talking about the photography, cake music, flowers and décor that you choose. A live band is AT LEAST twice as much as a DJ in most cases. You can spend anywhere from $ 800 to $ 8,000 on your photographer (especially if you’re importing them from Oregon for your Caribbean wedding). Lots of delicate flowers that require special handling and aren’t usually found in tropical climates for all of your nine bridesmaids can put you over the edge pretty fast too. Choosing chairs that are more than three times as expensive as the other option is a budget buster too. Some of these decisions you’ll have to make earlier (what kind of music?) but others, like how much to spend on flowers, can wait til you have a better idea of your overall budget. Might also make you think twice about adding the sky lanterns, the sparklers, the sunglasses and other silly things you found on Pinterest at 3 am.

Look, a budget is flexible. It has to be. You should be aware that when you sign a contract, you are making a commitment. Up to that point, it’s flexible while you get bids and decide HOW you want to spend your money. We “rob Peter to pay Paul” all the time as numbers shift. But controlling your guest list is a huge part of staying on budget. It can be done. I watch clients successfully come in within in five of their target all the time. However, it’s unlikely you’ll really have 40 guests if you actually sent 175 invitations.

Until next time, happy wedding planning from Weddings in Vieques and Weddings in Culebra!

The Essential Wedding Planning Guide: Cost Saving Tips, Checklists, Vendor Interview Questions, Budget Worksheet and More

Stayin’ Stylish… On A Budget

“I don’t do fashion, I am fashion.” — Coco Chanel

Suede suits. Lace dresses. Faux leather jackets. Old school tennis shoes. I can never keep track of what is trendy now, what used to be trendy, and furthermore, what should I spend my cash on. Just when I think I have it figured out, the silly trend changes again.

I live in Los Angeles, and yes, I fall prey to the overwhelming desire to stay stylish. Come on now, I know I’m not the only one out there who has labored in front of my closet trying to find the “perfect” combination to stay trendy, and to look, well, fantastically awesome. Let’s face it, trendy costs money… big bucks if you’re trying to keep up with the Joneses. As with everything, I argue there is a better way to stay stylish without going bankrupt.

You Look Marvelous Darling…

I sat down with celebrity stylist, Inanna Bantu, who is a part of the styling team Afropeaux and asked her how to solve this seemingly unsolvable crisis. Inanna is a style maven who has styled so many A-list stars including Tom Cruise, Betty White and Matthew Perry to name a few. She has an air about her that is infectious and makes me want to scream, “Please, come and make me marvelous!”

Shannah: Inanna, you’ve styled so many celebrities for movies, TV and print adds. Can you give me a list of your top five items that men and women should have as staple items in their wardrobe, on a non-celebrity budget?

Inanna: Yes, this is a great question. Just like building a financial foundation, having signature or staple pieces will pay you back time and time again because you can mix and match and really create your own style. Here is what I suggest:

Men:
Slim-fitting white dress shirt
Lapel accessories for blazers
Brown Monkstrap shoes
Blue Blazer, NOT navy
Colored Demin

Women:
A unique little black dress
Embellished coat
Statement heels
Investment bag
Variety of scarves from neutral to vibrant

Shannah: Great, I’m a personal fan of men’s white dress shirts. Something very timeless and classy about a man in a white shirt. Ok, so I’ve got $ 500 to spent this spring on additions to my closet. Where do I go and what am I looking for?

Inanna: Oh, good question. You can do a lot with $ 500, even less. For men and women, hit the clearance sections at Zara, H&M and discount retailers like Nordstrom Rack. I would buy statement pieces — off-the-rack clothes that fit your body well and allow you to be well-dressed.

Women spring items for less:
Neutral to vibrant scarves
Full skirts
Cut-out Tops/Dresses

Men spring items for less:
Casual pastel dress shirts
Low-top sneakers that look like, but are not from a fashion house
O ring belts and fedora hats

Shannah: Love it! I am a huge fan of Zara, but particularly like the Zara’s overseas. I think their buyers have a different knack at finding new trends. Let’s talk about how being properly styled can help you get a better job, bigger salary and get ahead. Do you have any examples of how being properly styled can result in a bigger bank account?

Inanna: I see this all the time. In fact, a high-profile client of mine needed an image makeover and we spent time recreating her look — by the time she hit the red carpet, she ended up booking a major film role due to her new look. So yes, ladies and gents, image IS everything in Hollywood… and your job market.

Shannah: Lastly, and honestly, who wouldn’t want to hire a stylist to go through their closet? I’ve always wanted someone to come in and magically wave a wand and totally change my style with the clothes I have. I’ve always heard that hiring a stylist is something that only A-listers can afford. Am I wrong?

Inanna: Yes, stylists have typically been considered a luxury; however, personal styling can be affordable, depending on your needs and wants. Often, a personal stylist charges by the hour with a minimum. This rate can vary per client. With my personal clients, I offer everything from closet overhauls, to shopping new looks to creating their signature style… even on a budget.

Shannah: I love it. So in a nutshell, you don’t have to spend a ton of money to update your look once you have your staple pieces. This can be done with a small investment and you can keep building from there. What I love even more is the importance of styling yourself even when you can’t afford to hire a stylist, because at the end of the day, being put together well leads to more money in the bank. It really is that simple.

Inanna: I couldn’t have said it better. Work with the money you have, build a piece at a time, and always leave the house believing you are red-carpet ready.

Astronomy with a Budget Telescope

Astronomy with a Budget Telescope


Astronomy with a Budget Telescope, 2nd Edition is a complete introduction to buying and using a low-cost amateur astronomical telescope. It provides essential hints and tips about what to look for when buying on a budget – the best are now excellent value, but they all lack an astronomer’s advice about setting them up and using them.Astronomy with a Budget Telescope was first published in 2003, since then technology has moved on substantially. The main factors are first the availability of fairly inexpensive computer-controlled “go-to” telescopes which after setting up can automatically locate any celestial objects with reasonable accuracy. Second, digital cameras have now almost completely displaced “wet” film cameras, and some of them are particularly well-suited to astronomical use. Third, prices are down and quality is up!This new edition is revised and extended to include using a low-cost “go-to” telescope – there are various pitfalls to be avoided – and how this class of instrument can make amateur astronomy more accessible to those with limited time at their disposal. It also discusses the new breed of mid-range digital cameras that include powerful on-board processing and image enhancement software that used to be available only to people with advanced astronomical CCD cameras. Finally, there are detailed reviews and test reports on some of the budget telescopes that are available on Main Street and by mail order.
