Happy, happy Tuesday!
I just realized that between the weather making me a shut-in and having a lot of responsibilities on my plate, the only way I
remember make time to treat myself is because of this weekly post. Thanks TYT!
I hope you’re remembering to take a few moments out of your busy schedule to take care of the most important thing in your life – YOU!
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 :)
First things first, lululemon :)
As I mentioned last week, I really wanted this zippie but passed on it while in Madison a few weekends ago. My online shopping habits got the best to me one night and it ended up being purchased. #oops This green beauty is supposed to arrive in the mail today and I can’t wait to try it on when I get home from work!
I really wanted this tank top, I mean – who wouldn’t?! But it was $25 and everyone knows I have more than enough workout clothes for 50 women so I did myself a favor and passed. I’m trying to be better with my money (aka – not buy little things that I don’t need) plus I want to buy these and this when I visit Vegas in August so it’s time to start saving up ;)
Another little treat this week (as I just said I wasn’t spending money on little things I didn’t need…) were these knee-high socks for St. Paddy’s Day! They were only $4 and St. Pat’s is HUGE here in Chicago. I’m pumped to celebrate my first green river holiday here in a little over a month.
I also purchased some new eye cream. My eyes are SO wrinkly in this dry, cold weather and I’m hoping this will do the trick. I’ll let ya know how I like it :)
On a non-shopping note, I treated myself by taking it easy on my knee over the past week. I briefly mentioned it in a previous post but I did something to my right knee. I’m not really sure how I injured it but it has been hurting after running a few miles and when I go down stairs. Thankfully, I ran 1.5 miles straight last night without pain! I’m still going to take it easy the next few weeks (it’s not like I can run outside anyways!) but it seems like it is healing itself.
Oh, and I can’t forget this wine. Kyle recently told me I don’t do enough wine reviews anymore… I’ll get on that soon but for now, here’s your review, hehe… –> Get it – you won’t be disappointed.
I may have thought it was a good idea to drink a majority of this bottle one night last week. #sorrynotsorry It tasted fabulous plus it was cheap ($10!) and I plan on picking up another bottle on my way through the train station tonight! You know you want to meet me there… ;)
And last but most definitely not least, I’ve been treating myself to dreams of Jamaica :) Get ready for a special TYT – Jamaica edition next Tuesday!
Your turn – How did YOU treat yourself this week?
