My friend L recently had a pretty bad "break-up" with her FWB (yeah, so much for no strings) and decided she was going to spoil herself a little. She actually treated herself to two things, one practical, one not so much. She bought new glasses, which she's been wanting for awhile, and since she's a huge fan of Rod Stewart, she bought tickets to his upcoming concert. I was pretty proud of her because she usually doesn't spoil herself, and after the grief this guy put her through, she more than deserved something to put a smile on her face.
In the last year, I've splurged on a few things for myself - a new laptop, a new digital camera, my upcoming trip to RWA (still working on that tattoo - just haven't found the right design yet). I'm also trying to save up for a new car in the next few years. But sometimes it's nice to have those moments of consumer spontaneity - buy first, think (and pay) later. As women, we don't really treat ourselves as often as we probably should. And we should, you know, because we ARE worth it.
What do you buy when you you really want to treat yourself?
(ahem, books is too obvious)
What's the last "nice" thing you bought for yourself,
as a reward, or just because?
