Boudoir Budgeting 101

"What is something you easily spend $40 on every week that is just for YOU?"

I posted this question to my VIP group last week and got an enormous variety of responses. It's so fascinating to see all the little ways we invest our hard-earned money back into ourselves! Some of our purchases are for self-improvement, others are simply guilty pleasures and entertainment. And you know what? We deserve to treat ourselves on a regular basis, within our own budget!


After reading through the responses, I sat my own tush down and thought about the countless personal purchases I make throughout the month: hazelnut mochas, streaming services, phone apps, obsessive Amazon buys, and don't even get me started on Hobby Lobby trips, thrifting adventures or strolls down the plant aisle. Even if it isn't consistently $40 every week, there are definitely some splurges I make, that when broken down, equate to that amount. All of us have "our things" that we either consciously or unconsciously put our money towards, and we'll always find ways to justify these purchases because they have a high Emotional Return On Investment (EROI). In other words, they make us happy!


So, today I want to spend some time talking about how to invest in your own boudoir session using a systematic budget on each of my Goddess Collections -- and whaddya' know, it starts at just under $40 a week! Prepayment plans break up your boudoir investment into a bite-size expense, making it a whole lot easier to budget for. While I never toss around the word 'cheap' when it comes to my work, like ever, I can definitely say it's affordable once you budget for it, and I'll show you exactly how to do it!


When you activate a prepayment plan, you can choose to have your payments auto-drafted monthly, bi-weekly, or weekly. The further out you book, the longer you'll have to pay AND the lower your payments will be. The lowest amount you can prepay on a collection is $39.56 a week - that's just $5.65 a day - which is basically what I spend on my favorite coffee order, alone. Curious to know more? Here ya' go, babe!

So, there you have it; an exact budget breakdown for each Goddess Collection based on the most common pre-session timeframes! Of course, I can customize your timeframe, but it must be within 12 months, and may not extend past your session date. And hey! If you'd rather save for this using your own boudie bank at home, these are the amounts to get you started! Budgets are essential, especially when it comes to luxury purchases, so if you truly want to invest in this experience, but money is the biggest thing holding you back, then this is for you!
