My name is LaTosha and I’m living my life like it’s golden on a shoestring budget in ChiTown (aka Chicago). When you consider how expensive it is to live here, many assume that this is an impossible feat to accomplish, but I am proof that it can be done in style! I created this blog for three reasons:
1.) I am always on the move and I’m often the go to person when people are looking for fun things to do in Chicago.
2.) I truly do LOVE Chicago and thought this would be a fun way to document my journey through this great city.
3.) My goal is to live an extraordinary life (who doesn’t ?!) and being content with the wealth you currently possess plays a major role in satisfying this desire. You can be a star in Chicago regardless of your budget (hence, the name StarChiLife).
I want to demonstrate that just because you don’t have as many zeros as you would like to have in your checkbook, doesn’t mean you can’t eat well, be chic, have fun, and discover new products and gadgets (I’m a techie at heart), tips, etc. that can enhance your life. In addition to some random rants and raves, I’m also going to introduce you to some very talented Chicagoland individuals that I refer to as the ChiStar Elite.
If you like what you hear and would like to accompany me on my journey through ChiTown and beyond (yes, I’m all for showing the ‘burbs some love too) then let’s go!
