Bitches on a Budget AKA Our New Life Mantra

Megan and I have a saying...remember when it was 2005? This is when we wistfully think of the times, when money grew on trees...when $100 lunches followed by ridiculous impulsive splurges were a daily occurrences...well, Bitches...we are not in Kansas anymore. Launched in this ridiculous economy, we have had some made some sacrifices! Wine only on Happy Hour, Dilliards instead of Neiman's...you catch my drift.

On my Facebook, I noticed one savy budget thinking friend become a fan of Bitches on a Budget...hmm whatever could this be??

Hands down one of the coolest most insightful reads in quite a while. Bitches on a Budget talks to you frankly and honestly and isn't that what we needed five years ago?? Its not too often that we recommend any kind of read...but I urge you to get your booty to a book store or Kindle it (don't get me started on my love affair with my Kindle), go to their website, get on their Facebook page, just do something, bitches. Race season is starting and we need all the help we can get!

Our Tony Stewart contest got a little sweeter!

Yesterday, we offered our readers an exclusive Racing Fashionistas contest for a chance to win one of two limited edition No. 14 Tony Stewart NASCAR® High-Back Leather Bonded Chairs from Office Depot.

WELL, IT GET'S EVEN BETTER THAN THAT!!

Tony Stewart has personally signed these chairs! Yes, you heard me correctly. Now, the original contest was amazing, but this puts it over the edge. Remember, we are looking to put these chairs into good homes (or offices). All you have to do is send us a photo of your desk or office decked out in Tony Stewart colors and fan gear to info@racingfashionistas.com. We want to make sure that one of these fab chairs will accentuate your place of business. The two top fan photos will receive an autographed chair from Tony Stewart!

We started this contest yesterday and we have had quite the response, so please hurry and get your photos in. You don't want to miss out on this contest, which ends on Friday, February 12th. The chairs will ship after the Daytona 500.

In case you missed yesterday's article and don't want to click here to read about it, here is a little more about the chair....The luxurious red and black bonded leather upholstery chair is cushioned for all-day comfort. It features a padded armrest to help alleviate shoulder strain, gearshift styled gas lift knob, a cushioned seat offering exceptional comfort and lumbar support and sleek racing wheel casters with durable base and scuff resistant foot pads. The msrp of the chair (without Tony's signature) is $229.99.

Denny, you KNEE-d to be careful!


Good Gravy, when will these boys learn? Carl playing Frisbee, Jimmie doing God knows what on a golf cart...these boys are getting hurt off the track as much as on the track! ESPN reports today that Denny Hamlin ripped his ACL in his left knee. This is fresh off him recovering from surgery on his RIGHT knee in December! He has chosen to delay surgery until next years off-season. Denny is widely proclaimed among news sources as the one to watch upseat Jimmie Johnson in the 2010 racing season. Let hope when he does win, he doesnt do anything crazy to further any damage.
