A lot can be said about a little self-indulgment.
I’ve never understood people who say they can’t buy something for themselves without feeling guilty. While I do tend to get caught up in the routine of life, it doesn’t take long before my inner Veruca Salt starts clearing her throat.
For someone who’s a
cheap ass bargain hunter when it comes to most things, over the last few weeks, I’ve started to see things a little differently…hence paying $2 for ONE freaking persimmon! I mean, you only live once right? And you sure as heck can’t take the money with you when your dead! So I might as well get myself that goose and fry up some golden eggs…or uh, something like that!
Which is probably why I decided it was a good idea to buy all my friends “party accessories” before our campfire last weekend and force them all to look as nerdy as me all night!
Glow stick duck face FTW!
Or why, after logging in to Open Sky JUST to change my email preferences, I ended up pausing for half a second to notice the words “$40 credit” floating up at the top of the screen…and then proceeding to spend $50!
But c’mon, these tanks KICK ASS, no?
Or why, while shopping for the besties birthday present last weekend, I decided to add yet ANOTHER bottle to my ever-growing collection.
With this label? How could I not?!
Or why, since hanging out with my music soul mate more, I’ve gotten a little
trigger clicker happy when it comes to indulging in my newest addiction…
Remix ALL THE SONGS!
And of course, what would all that fun be without sharing a little? It’s been on my workout playlist for months but this…
Ugh, and doesn’t Sam Smith’s voice just make you all toodly in your bits?
Granted, self-pampering doesn’t always have to come with a price tag. I’ve been having my fair share of FREE fun too…sleeping in until 11am, indulging in a little afternoon run in the rain, spending hours at the library, or giving myself a little pedicure…and that was all last Sunday!
Big thanks to Amanda for hosting my favorite Thursday’s linkup and for giving me a good way to mix things up from my usual randomness! Be sure to hop on over to Spoons and check out all the other random thoughts going on today!
