Five Cost-Effective Hacks to Elevate Your Style

I am certainly no Anna Wintour or Kim Kardashian. I’d rather spend my money on books and collectible Marvel superhero figures rather than expensive clothes and makeup. Seriously.

I find that a majority of my life-changing, though-altering, “big-bang” moments have happened after reading a book that has struck a particular chord with me.
