Pretty Things

I really need to take a shopping moratorium.  Not because I don't have the money to shop.  I do.  I paid my bills, I have a good chunk in savings, I'm good, but I need to take a break.

It's just a little to easy to get fixated on things.  Not that I haven't already started thinking about I want to buy next.

I need to step away.  Although I do need to buy some hangers in the near future.

There's been a lot of shopping in my life recently.  Shoes, boots, skirts, dresses, shirts, leggings, and probably other things I didn't list.

And I realized, as I thought through this post that I've used things to make life a little better.  Living at home with my parents, while working at a part-time (although pretty awesome for being part-time) job, has not made me feel like I have much going on.

So I buy pretty things with a heavy emphasis on shoes and makeup.  Because who doesn't like pretty things?!

Instead of shopping, I think I would be better served putting some energy into making things happen.  I need to make a plan and follow through.

Although the good news is that after these past two years, whatever I do, I'll look good doing it.


  1. I went through a time like that, I still do every now and then. I know it's unwise to spend too much money even though I know I can technically afford it, but it's still hard to resist shoes and sweaters! D:

  2. I'm with you on this about makeup! Seriously I could spend hours and hours at ULTA because I have to decide what I really want to buy and not buy.

  3. I do the same thing when it comes to shopping. I go for months without buying a thing, and then i just go on a shopping rampage and buy buy buy!!!
