Five Friday Frames, Part One

Sunday's Gay Pride celebration

My very first trip to the Highline- and Rainbow City!

Celebrating Antoine de Saint-Exupery's would-be 111th birthday with cheap champagne.

Notes from new friends give hope for the future.

New chocolate chip cookie recipe did not disappoint.
I’ve decided to start a new feature for the blog, namely because I’ve done a very poor job of going out to eat at least once a week. Time and money have not really been on my side as of late, but I’m okay with that.

Five Friday Frames is inspired by many sources. Many of my close friends are familiar with my ongoing Picture A Day project, a New Years Resolution I made and somehow never reneged on. I have also come to adore and look forward to seeing the visual weekly round-up on some of my favorite blogs, including the ‘Five Things’ posts from Emily Shuman at Cupcakes and Cashmere, and the ‘Bits of My Weekend’ segment from Kate Miss at For Me, For You. I love how their photos really connect the blogger to the reader, and look forward to sharing five frames from my week on the blog each Friday.

It is important, as a Brooklyn Bitch living on an extremely shoestring budget, to never fully be broken by your own brokenness. In fact, it is one of our fundamental rules of the broke-ass sisterhood. If you’re going to hide out in your apartment for weeks on end, eating out of cans and watching old TV shows streaming from your neighbor’s free wireless, then this blog is not for you. We seek ladies who are looking to make lemons out of lemonade, and really push themselves to have as many free adventures as time will permit. Being broke is no excuse for being boring. Get out and see, do, feel, taste. As you’ll see from our photos, we were right there with you all week long. My personal Picture a Day has forced me to seek out the unexpected, even on a bad “poor” day where I’d rather be hiding at home in my jammies.

I hope you enjoy! We’ll treat today’s post as a test-run for future posts. Please let us know what you think by dropping us a comment below, sending us an email at bbonabudget (at) gmail (dot) com, or Tweeting @bbonabudget.

  1. Wish I'd known you had frame one stashed -- I'd have alerted you to Poppytalk's Summer Colours Challenge -- Thursday was rainbow day, and how perfect would those giant stars have been?

    I did yellow, blue and red. Rainbow boggled my mind.
