Treat Yourself to a Little Bit of Luxury With a Dazzling Silk Scarf or Shawl

Updated on August 25, 2015

It is always wonderful to receive gifts from family, friends and cherished ones. This is true whether the occasion is a birthday, Christmas, anniversary or for no reason at all. These gifts make us feel special, wanted and cherished. Yet, somehow, the simple gifts we give ourselves are more precious. Perhaps, it is because they are tokens of our own self-esteem and speak volumes of how we feel about ourselves.

Today’s women are truly remarkable. They fulfill so many different roles on an average day. Yet, somehow, we balance our responsibility as a nurse to our sick children with an active part in a high-power board room meeting. With so many demands upon ourselves, it is far too easy to forget who we really are, how significant we are and what we need for ourselves. When we get lost in all that everyone expects of us, it is a good idea to reward ourselves with something special. It is a way of reminding ourselves we are important and deserve a treat.

Treating yourself is not always strictly a treat, it is also a reward for accomplishment. It becomes a motivational factor in accomplishing more. If you win that promotion, obtain that degree or make those extra sales it is a cause for celebration. You promise yourself something special if you meet your goals or achieve the targets. Even quitting smoking or losing weight is a reason to allow yourself to buy something special. It is all about positive reinforcement.

Women are practical. Purchasing an item for accomplishing something, may go against the grain. Sure, it would be nice to buy something special, out of our normal scope, as a reward. It would also be nice if the purchase was practical – was worth its cost and not simply a one-off. The problem is few things can fulfill this category.

There is one exception. It will remind a woman of how extraordinary she is while being practical and useful. This is an eye-catching hand painted silk shawl or scarf. The fabric is of 100% pure silk, guaranteeing a sensation of luxury. The designs are unique, reflecting the individuality of each woman who buys one. The craftsmanship that is integral to the creation of these works of wearable art mirrors the attention and concern a woman must demonstrate for herself and not just others.

Yet, while stunning beautiful and unique, these tremendously multipurpose accessories discharge all the concerns of both affordability and practicality. Silk shawls and scarves are not simply single-use items. You will never relegate them to the darkest depths of your closet nor stuff them into the back of a drawer, forgotten and neglected. You can wear these versatile accessories time-after-time. You can wear them to work or on special occasions. Moreover, every time you drape a silk scarf or shawl across your body, you will remind yourself of your individuality, your “specialness” and what you truly deserve.

Never wait for someone to indulge you in one of life’s little luxurious pleasures. Just do it. Delight yourself by purchasing a hand-dyed silk scarf or hand-painted shawl. Make sure it equals your personality, your style and even your mood. Remember what that commercial says: “You are worth it.”
