I’m really good at saving money.
If I set a goal for myself to not spend money on anything besides the essentials (groceries, household necessities, etc.) I will go months without spending a dime on things for myself (ie. new clothes, CD’s, movie nights, etc.)
However, I’m extremely good at spending money. And once I start it’s hard for this girl to stop.
It all started yesterday morning…
Once again, I found myself at Chapters. I just can’t keep myself out of that store now that they’ve renovated and started carrying home decor. But, even though I’m fascinated with all of their home decor items, I didn’t leave with anything of the sort. I bought myself a new day planner.
And not because I needed a new day planner. No, I already bought a brand new one just a few weeks ago, which you can see here, but I just couldn’t say no to this beautiful Kate Spade design. I spent an hour filling it out yesterday and now it’s all ready for school on Thursday!
After purchasing my new day planner it was like the spending couldn’t stop after that, so I headed downtown to some of my favourite London boutiques. I purchased two new “back to school” tops from Lolita, but let’s be real. Even if it wasn’t back to school season I probably would have bought these tops anyways
You’d think those two new tops and the day planner would have satisfied my spending needs, but I kept going. All for good reason, though.
Near the end of my shopping spree I found myself at the market and came across ghee.
I had never seen ghee in London before and I’ve been wanting to try it since one of my best friends claims that it’s her “favourite thing” and I’ve been increasing the fats in my diet, so why not add some ghee!?
Ghee, also known as clarified butter, has many healing benefits and is rich in vitamins A, D, E, and K, which are important for vision and bone health.
I can’t wait to wear my new clothes and use this new kitchen item!
