You Deserve A Treat - Shopping For Yourself!

Let's face it - you work hard every day, no matter what you do or where. You put your needs aside for everyone else's, I bet... you're always telling yourself "Later..." - right? Well, later is now!

We're going to chat about those temptations you encounter everyday while shopping -those adorable $19.99 diamond earrings they're offering to get you into the store.... that darling makeup set.... the nice cozy robe no one would ever dream to buy for you... you know what I'm talkin' about! Sure we love to buy for others on our list but for a person who really loves to shop, the temptation to self-indulge is nearly irresistible... and yet, resist we do!

Honestly, most of the time we do have to "behave" ourselves - there are budgets and needs to consider. But now and then... once in a blue moon... we deserve a little treat! That's what this lens is all about.

SO... let's take a deep breath and admit we'd love a little splurge, and then go just a bit further! Let's discover what we really want and find the best deal to bring it home!

Your list will be far different from mine, or anyone else's -so let's get busy dreaming!

What's Your Dream Gift To Yourself On Amazon? - Search For It Right Here!

OK, Tell Us What YOU Think! - C'Mon, you can tell us!

A discussion of the appropriateness of shopping for oneself during the holidays.

Do you think it's ok to buy things for yourself during shopping sessions?

Silk on eBay? You Betcha! - Nothing Cheers Me Up Like A Silk Scarf!

There is something about Silk that I just adore. I love the feel and look of it. I have found everything silk on eBay from tops to dresses to a funky silk patchwork robe made out of recycled silk saris! New, pre-owned, doesn't matter... as long as it's pretty and a great deal! Here are some pretty silk scarves to choose from.

What's Your Passion?

The one you haven't allowed yourself to indulge in!

OK, what is it... have you secretly craved learning how to make beautiful beaded jewelry? Want a new wardrobe? Sparkly jewelry? Perfume? Food gift certificates? Want to get the materials to build a birdhouse? New curtains for your kitchen? How about a whole new makeup or skincare line?

The photo here shows some of the jewelry I taught myself to make over several years of learning, trial and error. But isn't it pretty? Everybody needs some kind of hobby that lights them up. What's yours?

Please Say Hello! - Love to meet my shopping buddies!
