Alright my dolls, you locked that SD and started getting that money, what y'all gonna do with it?
-don’t even think about spending the whole amount. I mean NO. No matter if you are sure that’s a steel deal you got yourself, remember your daddy can leave you any time. So -
-always take some of your allowance and stack it like it doesn’t exist, literally, DEAD, burnt. Have your own little rainy day trust fund, it can be your childhood piggy bank, I don’t care as long as those paper bills aren’t spent.
You are in a great position now yet how you gonna know what tomorrow can bring you? Maybe you will be in drought for weeks sometimes a month or more. Always be prepared.
-don’t get into that terminator spending mode as soon as those hands feel the paper. Do you really need them Chanel bags and Loubies? If you are really craving for it make your SD get em for you. But honestly, shoe/bag/clothes shopping will make you happy for a while, a car or a house/apartment shopping would make you a bit more permanently happy ? These are big goals I know however aren’t unreasonable and aren’t something so not possible to reach.
-first take care of your bills/rent/tuition/food supply, COVER your basic needs for the month, SAVE the rest. You would be amazed by the sum if you counted all of them bills spent on cute little things you bought yourself from sugaring.
-Keep the receipts and sum it up in the end of a month, if you aren’t going to keep track of your money who will? God? No.
-set up some bigger goals that you plan on reaching from sugaring. It’s maybe paying off that student loan, signing up for masters degree, saving up for your own place, investing in stocks or a small start up of your own. You name it. But I’m sure there must be something more valuable to you than the shopping sprees. Tend to be more friendly to your future.
-I saw a movie few months back, and there was this scene where a bodyguard of a rich guy asks these SBs hanging in the mansion how are they investing their money? What they all said-shoes and bags. And then he spilled the basic truth, What y'all gonna do with them shoes and bags in few years? Mr X will replace you all with them younger bitches and then what? You gonna live in ya shoes? Damn. Opened my eyes. You ain’t gonna be sugaring forever.
-if you HAVE a vanilla job, don’t even dream about leaving/quitting! NO. No matter what or how good your SD is. No matter what he promises to you no matter how much money he gives you. THAT is NOT your PERMANENT INCOME. Allowance is your little/big lottery ticket you are getting every month/week. Treat it like one. It CAN be a losing one just from next time.
-be a HOE but a smart HOE. Always mention to these SDs your actual goals for your future, he is more likely to spend and help ya out with that education/business venture for example than he’ll be interested in spending on some flashy superficial stuff. I’ve learned that hard way.
-think about the way you get your allowance (wire transfer, pay pal, cheque etc) this does vary on a country you live in but CASH will always be the good old almighty cash.
-if he gives you a card, don’t buy everything you see! Take cash from ATMs and stack it. If that card is really at your disposal use it SMART. Pay your groceries with it, bills if possible, replace a thing in your home, help out your family if you are able. But don’t go on a crazy mall tour. Your SD won’t really give a damn how you used it, moreover you can earn bonus points if he notices you are spending it smart.
-I’m not saying that you should not go shopping eventually but be smart about it. Keep inventory of your wardrobe, do supply/demand chart. Do your supply renewal every 3 or 6 months. PLANNING is the mother of SPENDING. If you take care of your wardrobe it will always look fresh and new. Respect it. Remember- your bomb pussy earned that!
-you have stuff in your closet you haven’t worn a year? Great. Sell it online. It will clear up your space and get you some extra $$$.
-another tip on saving- don’t necessarily go all the time to beauty salons (if it’s not something mandatory you can’t do yourself), take some time and do your own mani/pedi, if you can style your hair (there’s some new brushes that literally do the straightening for you while using it, if I find a link I’ll post it) learn to do your own makeup. Don’t buy all the most expensive beauty products all the time, there are cheaper ones which are also good. Take note: BRAND sells the product. So don’t be a victim of someone’s successful advertising. Just because it’s a Dior cream it’s why you need to own it?
-stack as many SDs as possible, short time ones, regular ones, it means MORE money for your wallet.
-don’t show off, don’t bring that negativity out from people. It’s still bad energy and why would you possibly want to make yourself a problem or an unpleasant situation? E.g. Outing you to your friends family coworkers etc, list has no end. You DO NOT have to impress anyone! You live in your OWN skin NOT in other peoples EYES!
-if you can’t keep track of your finances/spendings hire an accountant, it will help you big time!
-take advantage of the sales when you are getting your food/wardrobe or whatever
-don’t be lazy and go to the restaurants all the time! LEARN how to cook if you don’t already know. I’m aware how delicious that home delivery is but the price of a single order could maybe cover more meals if you went to the supermarket. It’s ok occasionally ordering food/going out to eat but think how much you can save up just by cooking yourself.
-be bills and environmental friendly, which means that you don’t need to have all of your lights in the home ON all the time, take your charger out when finished charging your phone/computer, don’t leave your desktop running all day/night or on sleep mode. Same applies to your tv. Take showers instead of filling up the tub. You will be amazed how much all of that can reduce your monthly expenses! Now sum that up for a year! Oh, yes.
-instead of paying for a crazy expensive gym, go out for a run, work out at home/in nature, don’t be lazy and look up YouTube tutorials for different workouts that don’t include gym.
-use public transport whenever you can instead of taxis/uber/your own car (if you own one), take a bicycle if you can, it will do magic to your body and your bank account.
-learn the difference between your NEEDS and DESIRES. Your desire can be your worst enemy if you can’t control it.
-don’t hoard food! Do your supply AD HOC (when necessary).
-make list of all monthly expenses you have, write PROs and CONs for each. Ask yourself do you really need it every month? Cut all unnecessary things off that list.
-get a vanilla job if you already don’t have one!
Combine some of these tips and do good for yourself, doesn’t necessarily mean you have to follow up to the point rather customize it to your own convenience!
Andre Fuentes has passed away at the young age of 40. He was one of Britney’s first back up dancers. He danced for her starting in 1998 when Britney was an unknown artist performing at malls across the country.
He’s seen in many of Britney’s most popular and iconic music videos such as Sometimes, (You Drive Me) Crazy, Born To Make You Happy, Oops! I Did It Again and Overprotected. He performed along side the princess of pop for her early tours and the 1999, 2000 & 2001 MTV VMAs.
Andre quickly became a highly successful choreographer for more A-list artists such as Gwen Stefani, Beyonce and Prince. Andre’s choreography can be seen in more videos by Britney like ‘Womanizer’ as well as the 2008 music video ‘Circus’ which earned him a Best Moves award at the 2009 MTV Australia Awards and multiple MTV VMA nominations.
Here’s a quote from @britneyspears via @popcrush where she describes why she loved working with this talented man.
“He’s just amazing. He gets it. He gets me. And he knows how to make a woman look good. He gets my body. He knows my body. He knows what makes me look great, and that’s why I like him.”
Niall moans as he moves out of bed, causing you to stir awake.
“Babe, what’s wrong?” You ask him.
He runs his hands through his hair and turns off his alarm clock. A loud cough erupts from him and you sit up in response. You move closer and put your arm around him.
“I feel like shit,” he says.
You purse your lips together and feel his forehead.
“You’re burning up, Ni. I don’t think you should go in to the studio today,” you tell him.
He shakes his head huddles over as another cough erupts from him. “I can’t. I’ve got a song I’ve got to finish today. Besides, management would have my ass if I didn’t show. They’ve got me on a tight schedule.”
You get out of bed and slip into your slippers and then make your way into the kitchen. He gets changed while you heat up some water and make some tea with honey and lemon.
He isn’t going to listen to you, he’s too stubborn and you know it. Instead, you make him something to help ease his throat and when he walks in the kitchen, fully dressed, you hand him two advil to calm down the headache he keeps complaining about.
“Thank you,” he says while taking the two pills. You lean in for a kiss and frown and when he pulls back.
“You aren’t going to kiss me?”
“I don’t want you getting sick.”
You roll your eyes at his words and quickly kiss his lips. He shakes his head while you laugh at him.
“I sleep next to you. Plus, we shared the same drink last night at dinner with your friends. I’m probably getting sick regardless.”
“Don’t come crying to me when you are then,” he backfires.
You roll your eyes at him, “You are the crabbiest person whenever you’re sick.”
He grumbles into the mug of tea and downs it in just a few minutes. He scarfs down some dry toast and gives you one more peck before heading out.
Once he leaves you take a shower and change into a pair of comfy clothes. It’s Saturday which means you have the day off from work. With the holidays fast approaching, you use your free day to its full advantage.
The mall is extremely crowded as you make your way through the stores. Everywhere you look is full of people trying to get their Christmas shopping done before they have to do it last minute. You text Niall throughout your trip to see if he needs anything and you aren’t surprised when he doesn’t respond. When he’s in his studio mode he won’t respond for hours.
“Miss, you dropped a bag!” Someone yells from behind you.
You turn around and try to keep hold of the ten bags your holding. A young woman smiles at you and hands you your bag. It’s the one containing the gift for your mother and you thank her profusely for letting you know.
Your phone starts to ring but you know there is no way you’re going to be able to get it at the moment. With most of the gifts crossed off the list, you hurry out of the crazy mall. When you reach your car you place all the gifts in the trunk and curse as your phone won’t shut up. When you finally find a free hand you grab your phone and find Niall’s caller I.D. popping up.
“Hey, babe. What’s up?” You ask him.
A loud cough is the only thing you hear for the first few seconds.
“Babe, you there?”
“Y-yeah. I’m here. Can you come pick me up? I’ve got a massive migraine that won’t stop.”
You furrow your eyebrows in concern and let him know that you’re on the way. When you get to the studio, Niall walks out with a huge sweatshirt on and pulls the hood over his head. He gets in the car and starts coughing immediately.
“I told you that you should have stayed home.”
“I know,” he agrees. “Can we just go back to the flat and sleep?”
You lean over and kiss his cheek, “Of course. I’ll make some soup and tea. How’s that?”
He smiles in response, “I love you, know that?”
“I know,” you say with a smile. “I love you too, even if you don’t listen to me when you should.”
He laughs at that, which causes another coughing fit from him. You shake your head and tell him to call his doctor immediately. This time, he listens.

Frank isn’t good at holding grudges
Americans are surprised when the listen to Frank talk and they like to tell him that he “doesn’t sound Canadian”
Frank tries to convince Hazel to dress up as Korra the Avatar for Halloween so that he can turn into a polar bear and go as Naga
Frank makes friends with the few other Canadian legionaries after the Giant War and they can spend hours scoffing and making fun of Americans (“Is that even a real form of measurement?” “According to America it is.” “I should apologize to my ninth grade science teacher and tell him I’ll never complain about the metric system again.”)
There you go anon! Hahaha I kinda got carried away but I couldn’t resist.
By the time Christmas rolled around, it was cooler outside and people were buzzing around to get Christmas presents. It was always so busy in New Orleans and the malls with crazy shoppers. Everyone had their house nicely decorated with trees, lights and stockings. Rebekah was making the turkey like she always did with some assistance from Bonnie and Hope while Mia made desserts. She told Caroline not to worry– mainly because she didn’t want anything burnt– but also because Caroline had done enough already.
