When I started writing about my monthly favorites, I really didn’t take into account the fact that I was trying to not spend money. While I haven’t conquered the whole not spending thing because #treatyoself, I have significantly cut back.

That’s a lie. I just spend my money on things like food now. Which in my mind is worse because I don’t have a physical object to represent the money I spent. Regretting everything now.

I’m not going to lie. I had a couple of really good months in terms of work. Yes, I have less free time, but having wiggle room in my bank account is a welcomed trade-off.

I really only made one purchase this month that’s worth talking about.

Also, my definition of splurging is skewed. My last splurge happened in July when I bought myself a FitBit. This month, however, was a more business conscious purchase.

Canon G7X

Canon G7X Mark II

Yes, I bought another camera. If you’ve been following along with my YouTube channel, you know I’ve barely been posting. So why do I need another camera? Great question. I didn’t need it. But in my warped little head of mine, I assumed if I spent the money, I’d use it.

I wasn’t wrong. I put out more videos with my new Canon G7X than I have in a while And I plan to use it this month when I head to New York Comic Con. Having a camera that has a flip-out screen that’s still compact is definitely a game changer. That was the downfall of my last “vlogging” camera. I made so many excuses to scrap the footage because I wasn’t in the frame or it wasn’t focusing.

Now when I make excuses, you can come for me. I’m very excited to continue to use this camera to create new content.


Firmoo.com Glasses

If you are following me on YouTube, you know my latest video included a section about my new glasses. I got the email that a lot of people get to try out their glasses. As someone who wears glasses all the time, I like having options. So I took them up on their offer.

I can’t imagine spending so much money on glasses anymore but it was my way of life before I tried out these online retailers. The glasses look great and are a fraction of the cost. That’s a win in my books.

Firmoo sent me my glasses for free and I’m also now an affiliate. If you’re in the market for affordable glasses, you can use this link to purchase. If you use my code d4a2b, you’ll get 50% off.

So those are the only things worth mentioning this month. I foreshadow a lot of purchases incoming as the weather gets colder because I definitely won’t be leaving my house.
