Something is happening this year. I can't really put my finger on it.
It started late last year, requesting an eternal diamond ring from hubby. I got it just before Christmas. It wasn't that expensive but I have NEVER EVER requested for diamonds. For that matter, I have never ever bought something so unpractical before.
Then early this year, I decided I will spend some time and money doing sketching. Bought some sketch books, making do with pencils and bought 2 books on sketching from US.
I also ordered a Coach handbag. I am not really a Coach person, per say. But I just want to own one in my lifetime.
I also bought a Levi and several Paul Frank shirts. I know you might think Levi is nothing really big. But to me, a Levi is like what....premium jeans? I spend half on a Giordana which fits me just fine! So, there is no reason for a Levi actually. But just one....in my lifetime.
And Paul Frank (and some other branded shirts) to me was a no-no. Coz a shirt...I mean....should be just comfortable and presentable. Why pay more for the label? Coz seriously we aren't paying for the quality. I have Uniqlo shirts which cost less but are better that Paul Frank. Uniqlo in fact to me is rare.
Then the Opal ear-rings that I asked hubby to buy. I would have asked him to get a Hardrock for me too, if not for the fact they no longer exist.
Now I am eyeing the Samsung Galaxy S3. And some beautifying stuff that I would have never considered last year.
Bought a new camera....but I am not going to put that on me. After all hubby uses that too.
So, I am not sure what is it about me this year. I just feel I don't want to deprive myself anymore. Spending....or splurging a little bit to make me happy ain't all a bad thing. Maybe I won't take it out on hubby then when he spends or goes out to enjoy himself and I am stuck at home. Not with pleasures to keep me occupied at home.
I am growing up. Learning to let go. Learning to love myself.
