I did really well today. I took a run to the mall at lunch with one of my friends and though I browed through Sephora and Ann Taylor – I did not buy one thing. Not a one.
I’ve become quite the shopper as of late. Not because I’m buying things that I don’t really need – but because I tend to put myself last on the list for importance and therefore I’m in a shortage of things I DO need. So I end up doing like a bulk shopping, or multiple shopping excursions which always makes me feel like I’m being too indulgent.
I do need summer work and play clothes – and Ann Taylor has exactly what I want, but I didn’t really have time to shop so I’ll have to go back there. I do need shoes for summer. Not just the typical type shoes that I always buy, but a more sophisticated style and I’m really loving a lot of the peekaboo shoes I’m seeing. Lord and Taylor had some gorgeous Ann Klein shoes, but – I’ll probably find what I want at Marshalls because I’m truthfully all about the bargain. I like to look like I’ve spent a fortune but I really didn’t. It makes shopping for me easier when I feel like I scored a deal. Must be that “mom” guilt I got going on.
Or, it could be that I’ve got a hair appointment and a massage appointment lined up for myself next week – oh, and a pedicure – so I can’t really go crazy on spending money on “stuff”. Sigh.....It’s tough having a conscience.
