Who is La Shaun?

I am on my journey to financial freedom and decided to document it for the world to see. Crazy!?! I know.  I have stopped and started this blog so many times out of fear. Fear of what people would think and the fear of failure. After a sign from God I decided to let fear go and move forward. God reminded me that this is not about me. Its about the young woman who is in the same situation who needs motivation to push forward.  I have been able to accomplish every major goal that I have set for myself so why not the goal of financial freedom. I have to stop limiting God and myself. So here I am lol.

I am a introvert that  likes to  read, watch ratchet tv, watch  YouTube ( and now Periscope), do artsy things such as paint and make jewelry, and enjoy life stress free.

  I am a Certified Financial Education Instructor.



What is Divas R Frugal?

Divas R Frugal takes readers along my personal finance journey from credit card and student loan debt. While on this journey I am empowering millennial women, like myself, to know that being Frugal does not cancel your inner Diva. Women should achieve frugality in their mind, finances, and their spirits. Our definition of Frugal is the ability to learn and execute how to get the things that you want without breaking the bank or having to settle for less.

What you will find here at Divas R Frugal:

Goal Setting

I believe that the only way to reach accomplishments is to set and achieve goals. We have to see goals in all areas of our lives.  I share my goals through a monthly goal post entitled “Getting Ish done”.  I encourage you to also set goals and steps often.  You will see that I am not perfect and don’t always meet the mark. I don’t let that deter me. I rewrite and rework the steps to my goals and move forward.

Personal Finance

I discuss personal finance mainly in the area of budgeting and money mindset. I provide resources to help you along your own personal finance journey. I discuss my own progress in the Purse Diaries. The Purse Diaries documents my personal debt pay down of credit cards and student loans.

Beauty and Hair

I love hair and beauty. I love playing and experimenting with beauty products. I want to look good but wear affordable makeup.  I review beauty products that are affordable. The purpose of the review is to let you all know if the product is worth the purchase. I also complete round ups such as hauls and empties.


I am the girl that you will find in the store looking up reviews to a product before I make my final purchase. I hate to waste my money on a product that does not work. This lead me to start doing reviews and demos of various products. My aim is to always review products that are cost effective.

Motivation and inspiration

We all need a boost from time to time. You will see posts sprinkled around the blog  that will keep you on track to reach your goals when you feel like you feel like stepping off the course.
