Well hello there and welcome to Treat Yourself Tuesday!
Again, a BIG thank you to everyone that participated in Treat Yourself Tuesday last week. I loved reading all of the ways you treated yourself and can’t wait to see what this week has to offer!
If you’re new to TYT, head over here to read about why I am a firm supporter and advocate for treating ourselves – even in the smallest of ways – everyday! I promise you will fall in love with the idea and once you do, please link up below :)
Before I get into my little treats of the week, I want to thank all of you AGAIN (I’m full of thankfulness today!!) for all of you sweet Tweets, Instagram notes, emails and texts about my first day of work! I couldn’t respond to them right away because I was in meetings all day but they made me smile and I loved feeling the love. You are all seriously the best and I love each of you <3
My alarm went off super early and I didn’t want to get up but I fit in a quick elliptical workout before getting glammed up for my first day! (Notice the sideways thumbs up??! I was too groggy to even get my thumb the right way, haha!)
Everyone on my team was really nice – I was treated to a bagel from Dunkin’ Donuts for breakfast and a lunch out at Freshii and a Starbucks tea in the afternoon. I don’t have any photos because I was not about to be the new girl who oddly takes photos of everything she eats ;)
I arrived home a little after 5pm to an adorable card from Melanie! She’s the sweetest and this card is just what I needed after my first day. Plus it cracked me up ;)
Okay, now onto how I treated myself this week! Can you guess what I did?
Yep, a bit more shopping ;) Hehe…
On Friday I found out that my office wears jeans 3x/week and I own one pair – yikes! I went out on an emergency shopping trip for jeans and found a pair of Citizens of Humanity at Nordstrom’s. I also picked up a gorgeous necklace from J.Crew and some beauty essentials from Sephora.
The necklace was only $30 (woohoo!) I decided to take a risk and try the new Sugar Lip Treatment – LOVE IT! It leaves my lips so soft and isn’t very sticky like most lip glosses. If you haven’t tried it, Lash Perfekt mascara gel is seriously the best thing ever. It conditions your lashes, making them more healthy and it looks so natural when applied.
Next week (or I guess this week…) – no shopping, I promise! I have to wait until I get my first paycheck before I hit up anymore stores… Stay tuned for a creative TYT next Thursday :)
Now I’m curious, what did YOU do to treat yourself this week?
