Lately, I’ve been a little reckless. I’m not sure what it is, but I’ve been spending way too much and indulging in every kind of sugary treat, and it’s starting to catch up with me. After my Treat Yo Self Day a few weeks ago, I realized that my poor bank account was being stretched to its limits…as are my waistbands. See, Treat Yo Self Day wasn’t an isolated incident. I treat myself all the damn time.
Maybe it’s because I work all day and night, first at my real job and then at home with this blog. Since I don’t usually have a lot of time to relax, I give in to snapping up my shopping wishlists and eating ice cream for dinner every night. Or maybe there’s some kind of void in my life that I’m trying to fill. Or maybe it’s just really fun to get. more. stuff.
Whatever it is, treating myself all the time has gotten to a point where I need to rein it in a little. I’m going to try giving myself a little more break time and see how that goes. It could be that chilling out with a book now and then will work as its own reward. I’m certainly headed for a blog break soon, but I want to wait until all the brilliant leaves have fallen.
Do you guys ever get like this? What do you do when you realize you’re indulging a little too much?
On a happier note, I do want to talk a bit about the dress I’m wearing. The fine folks at eShakti contacted me and asked if I’d like to try their service, and since I’d been an at-a-distance fan for a while, I was very excited to take them up on it! The whole point of the company is to make customized clothes. They’ve got a nice selection of dresses, tops, bottoms, and jackets, but they give you so many options to tailor each piece to exactly what you want. I liked this dress a lot, but I didn’t think the length would work for me. Not to fear! Not only do they take your height into account, but you can also pick out the hemline you want–from mini to maxi. I also could have changed the collar and sleeves, but I liked them just as they were. When my dress arrived, I loved that it fit me just right! My only issue is that the sash that came with it was waaaaay too long, so I’ll be using my own belts. Now excuse me while I order another dress…
