A Week In NYC On A $300,000 Salary

Welcome to Money Diaries, where we're tackling what might be the last taboo facing modern working women: money. We're asking millennials how they spend their hard-earned money during a seven-day period — and we're tracking every last dollar. (Thanks, New York mag, for the inspiration.)

Today, in honor of our Beauty Innovator Awards, a founder of a tech startup tracks her spending for a week.
