Not sure about you, but we're FRIED. Too much work and not enough sleep does not a happy broke girl make, and this week is feeling endless. But, it's almost Friday, so as usual, we're going to tell you all the best deals on everything from dining out to wiling...

New York Fashion Week is over, and we have to admit to feeling some...relief. The seasonal batch of style bandwagoners surfaced in droves this fall, which made wading through the runway reports that much more arduous.

For our part, we'll keep it brief with takeaways that are, as...

New York Fashion Week officially starts today, but if you're the broke girl we know you are (say it loud, say it proud), your front row to the runway involves some combination of Instagram, YouTube and obsessive scouring of street style blogs. We're right there with you...

Hooray! It's Labor Day! Well, almost. We're already savoring everything about this three-day weekend... especially the "three day" part. And we'll take all the on-the-job appreciation we can get, even when it's nationally mandated.

Impetus aside, any break is a good one as far as we're concerned. And...

Every Thursday, we start looking forward to the weekend ahead with one word in mind: recovery. That resolve lasts for all of ten seconds, until we start reading through event listings, scouring restaurant guides, and sending in (very) last-minute RSVPs to friends' birthdays and just-because's. If your Friday through Sunday...

Before heading into that glorious two day respite we call the weekend, all of us here at Broke Girls Guide like to reflect on the last four days we've, ahem, endured. Despite our best efforts, the goals we set for ourselves at the outset of each new week ("gym...

We hate to state the obvious, but it's been a long week. Between being featured on The Glitter Guide to finding out Beyonce ditched those run-the-world waves for a (as it turns out, damn cute) pixie cut, we can't take much more. Translation: Go ahead and...

While we are normally happy to have left the terrible haircuts, awkward encounters with boys, and bad skin of our youth in the past, the summer is certainly not one of those times. How is it fair that teenagers and college kids--with their boundless energy--get three whole months off,...

What do you's already the weekend! Or at least, nearly. While we sometimes wish we were still a colony belonging to England (those accents make men so much hotter, no?), we're forever grateful for the freedom that independence has afforded us. Especially when that freedom presents itself as two...

What a difference a few days can make! Just two days ago we were grouchy, underslept messes trying to get our heads in the game after three days of blissful freedom and (PG) debauchery. Now, it's already almost the weekend again, and what a weekend it's going to be! The...
