Desperately Seeking ______________ on Sale...

What are you desperately seeking on sale?

Food Therapy

Good food is as satisfying as a good sale. So from time to time (probably more than that because I'm a foodie and I love to eat), I'll be providing some food therapy. Be forewarned, I'm an adventurous eater with a HUGE sweet tooth. If you're in NYC, I hope you try some of these spots. If you do, LMK what you think. Bon appetit!

Video Reviews

While picture reveals of bags are nice. Video reviews of bags are better! As such, I will endeavor to post as many video reviews of bags as possible. However, I will only be reviewing bags that I like. Life is too short to review bags that I dislike. Plus, at the end of the day, it really is just a matter of personal opinion/taste.

Capital One: The ONLY Credit Card You Should Be Using Abroad

Now that credit card companies have re-characterized the "foreign exchange" fee into a "foreign transaction" fee, you're going to get smacked with a "foreign" fee no matter how you charge a purchase when traveling abroad.  All cc companies are now charging you for simply using your cc in a foreign country whereas many cc companies used to only charge you when they were required to calculate your international purchase from foreign currency into U.S. dollars.

So cc's that I used to use when I could get a foreign merchant to charge in U.S. dollars are now gathering dust (Citibank - cough, cough).  With many foreign transaction fees equaling 3%, it really adds up fast.  The ONLY exception to this foreign transaction fee lockdown is Capital One.  They do not charge a foreign transaction fee.  If you're taking a vacation abroad, make sure you apply for a Capital One credit card beforehand.  Capital One is the ONLY cc that you should be using abroad!
