With everything that has been going on in my life lately, someone told me last week I should do things to treat myself every week. This doesn’t have to be food, money or workout related. Chances are whatever I choose will probably involve spending money but it doesn’t have to be like that. Is that to say I can justify spending 300 dollars on a new pair of shoes? No. But I do enjoy treating myself whether that is getting my nails or hair done or just enjoying some personal time or a few wardrobe pieces.
That being said I think everyone has something (material wise) they want. I don’t think that makes you materialistic…what do I know though? HA.
I was thinking during a run this week, I’ve always wanted to know what type of material items people buy outside of running and working out. What kind of clothing or accessories do you want? What kind of fashion interests you? What kinds of things are on your wish list? Somehow it escalated into my wheels turning of actually creating a wish list for myself. Maybe checking some off soon… maybe not…
I don’t go out of my way to spend a lot of money. I would rather get something on sale, clearance, etc. I think most people are like that though. Why spend 1000 dollars if you could spend 600 on the same thing? (That’s just a huge example; I’m not actually sure what I would spend 1000 dollars on).
I would rather spend 100 dollars at various restaurants or activities catching up with friends versus 100 dollars on a new purse. To me treating myself means catching up with friends, going out to eat or getting my nails done. Occasionally treating myself includes purchasing new material items (if only that meant a new car 😉
That being said, I have been eyeing a couple of things lately (I tried to save the photos on both items but it’s one of those 3D views so I can’t).
These rue21 jogger pants. Not that I could see myself going “jogging” in them but they are cute and I love the patterns.
I haven’t updated my party pants collection in a while. Back in Oswego, I loved to wear printed party leggings. when appropriate). The only reason I haven’t actually bought any yet (because they are so cheap…) is because the closest one to me in NJ is about 25 minutes away and I’m lazy on days off from work. I’ll update you on instagram when I do. I want to make sure they aren’t see through but I’ve had leggings from them before and they haven’t been.
This fossil purse. I’ve been in desperate need for a new purse to carry things to work. I only use a purse on the way to work but I would rather not stuff everything into a plastic bag. Plus on the very rare (once per year) occasions I need a purse this would be nice. I love rose gold and I love fossil so it’s the perfect blend. The unfortunate thing about this is that facebook saw I visited the fossil website and stole my cookies (or whatever). Long story short, facebook keeps adding sponsored ads of fossil purses to my minifeed. It’s so tempting.
So right now that is on my random wish list. I’ll probably see how much I end up spending this month and buy the fossil purse soon. The leggings are inexpensive so I guess I just need to motivate myself to get over to Cherry Hill.
Question for you: Is there anything material you are wanting right now?
