Flicking through magazines and gazing into shop windows, not to mention browsing book stores, I see many sparkly things I’d love to own. I’m not WANT WANT WANT, I learned to live modestly and minimally during University, but I would like the chance to buy things without having to think deeply about it. Knowing that I had earned it and being able to enjoy my purchases all the more because of that.
I cannot wait for my first post-graduation pay check. Which reminds me of a Postsecret I saw awhile back.
I wouldn’t spend the money wildly, definitely no buying couture that should be draped on mannequins of high-end fashion shops, but I would certainly treat my house, wardrobe and bookshelves to some treasures. Oh, and I love buying gifts for others.
My two latest treats:
I never had any Beanie Babies during the initial craze but Support the Pink Ribbon bear caught my eye, especially as the proceeds went towards Breast Cancer Care and Research. He is so pink, adorable and soft. And we could all do with Support in our lives right?
I have so many piles of magazines, photos and papers I really needed storage boxes or something to keep them in. This large box was a find, the top is actually textured and the delicate flowers and butterflies adorning it turn a storage box into something quite pretty. I’m using this one for my postcards, letters and stationery but I will definitely go back for more boxes. I really should be banned from arts, crafts and stationary stores!
