Last week, when I was feeling all down and out for myself – or as I like to refer to it, being an ‘Emo Kitty’ – I wanted to treat myself to something nice so I took to the interwebs for a little bit of retail therapy as part ( ps. believe it or not – it actually works). It might be the thrill of crossing things off and that warm feeling of accomplishment after finishing a difficult task, but I’m a huge fan of lists and mental checkpoints; and as my mother always preached – everything in moderation (including moderation). So, instead of going on a glorified and financially stimulating shopping spree, I pick and choose a few key things to compliment my life that I’ve had on my wishlist for a while (yes, I have wishlist; yes, it’s amazing; yes, you should make one – we’ll chat about that later though!). Even though I’ve been following the Brandy & Melville clothing line and adamantly pinning their cute, comfortable and all too adorable wardrobe and accessories on my Pinterest board for the last two years, the only items I’ve ever owned from them were hand-me-downs. I took a gander at their website and gleefully picked a few of the things I’d been eyeing, I filled up on some new books that I can’t wait to dive into and a few art supplies off of Amazon, candle making supplies from Candle Science so I can finally open the first vertical of my new ETSY store that I’ve been planning for over a year now and last but certainly not least – I snagged an awesome and incredibly inexpensive universal smartphone photo lens package so my boyfriend and I can explore more photography options before we commit to a fancy-shmancy, upscale Professional camera. Needless to say, my mood has been completely elevated – and speaking of, the new lenses have most definitely pushed my photography to the next level; I can’t wait to play around more!
