Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

The Best Eyeliner in the Universe is at Staples.

It's true. I was startled when a very fashionable friend of mine started applying her eye makeup with a Sharpie. I looked a little freaked out so she put her pen down and said, "Cynthia Rowley told me to do this. It works and the company says it's safe. I've been doing it forever." So I tried it last night and it is easy to apply, doesn't smudge and the pointed felt tip can draw a thin or thick line depending on your look (and steadiness of hand.) I'm buying the 12-pack of colorful Mini Sharpies for $11.99 and I'll keep a few in my purse. They also have an 8-pack of plum and jewel tone colors that would be an awesome xmas gift for a citybroke friend who's up for it.
