What is the most self-indulgent thing you've ever done?
Aside from have too much chocolate or shots of tequila (or insert fave alcohol)?
When I look back on those pleasures I've taken for myself, I have to say most of them involved shopping!
When in the corporate world, I bought loads of SHOES! Finely tailored suits. (Walking into the Board room demanded spiffy duds, didn't they?) And years later, I still have them. Most fit...although now, as a stay at home author, who needs them?
What else did I buy? One year, in cold Washington, D.C., I went to a sale at a local furrier's. I have, love, and do still wear whenever I can in south Texas, a full length white sheared beaver by Pierre Cardin. People drop in their tracks. I love the warmth!
Five years ago, I bought the ultimate yum-yum. A convertible.
Hubbie calls it my Silver Bullet. I call it Heaven. Wind in my hair, sunglasses on, I do the grocery store and the coffee shop in gleeful style. Expensive, sure.
But again for a gal who sits at home in her office and writes nearly every day of the week, this one has to have fun!
I figure since I don't spend money on those executive suits any longer, nor a lot of alcohol, nor cigarettes (though I used to and still CRAVE one now and then--yes, that is me staring at those who smoke and wanting to bum one), I can "afford" these things.
What else do I spend money on?
Great soap. Great perfume. My hair and my glasses cuz I wear them every day!
What do you indulge in?
Let's hear it!
