Kourtney Kardashian is following in her sister’ footsteps. She has started a blog! Her blog Poosh is a new take on Gwyneth Paltrow’s famous Goop blog. While I find this blog entertaining to read (with emphasis on the word ENTERTAINING), it is a perfect example of how NOT to live a Budget Friendly Life.
5 Pooshisms that are not Budget Friendly
Poosh Believes: You must own a $1,600 Infrared Amethyst Mat in order to relax.
While I like that idea of a heated mat to help me relax, I am sure if I paid $1,600 for it I would be too stressed out to relax properly.
Budget Friendly Luxury Believes: that there are many budget friendly ways to chill out an relax:
Here are a few Budget Friendly ways to relax:
If you feel that the only way to truly relax is by lying on a heat mat, then you may find this one a bit more Budget Friendly
Poosh Believes: You must use $1,400 Blood Cream on your skin daily.
Apparently this $1,400 Blood Cream is the new rage in celebrity skin care. A German Doctor takes your blood and mixes the plasma with shea butter cream to make a cream you then rub all over your face. Sounds delightful right?
Budget Friendly Luxury Believes: Looking beautiful doesn’t have to cost your very own blood, sweat and tears.
Here are a few Budget Friendly ways to have beautiful skin:
- Try a Copper Base Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase $60

Poosh Believes: A $1,300 leather wastebasket is a simple way to update your bathroom.
Along with the waste basket, you have the $1,800 alabaster vanity holders and the $800 Picasso drawing. All perfect accessories to spruce up your powder room. Right?

Poosh Believes: $485 Louis Vuitton Playing Cards make the perfect hostess gift.
Kourtney suggests taking your hostess gift giving to the next level by giving extravagant gifts such as $485 playing cards or expensive Hermes soaps.
Budget Friendly Luxury Believes: You can find a wonderful hostess gift for less than $50.
Here are a few Budget Friendly Luxury hostess gift ideas:
- Personalized Cheese Board $35
- Jo Malone Rose Guest Soap Box $22
- Playing Cards in a Monogrammed Leather Case $42
Poosh Believes: That one should travel in style using a $525 Prada Make Up Bag
I will give Kourtney credit where credit is due… Her travel bag essentials aside from the bag itself were pretty normal (except for the Blood Cream mentioned above).
Budget Friendly Luxury believes: You can travel in style without breaking the bank.
Here are a few Budget Friendly Luxury Make-up Bag options. All under $50.
While this post was all in good fun, the point is you can have a luxurious life without spending thousands of dollars. It is all about knowing where to shop and what to buy. I hope that you had fun learning more about living a Budget Friendly Life and who you are trying to impress.
