Recently I have finished reading the shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella. It is a five book series. They are hilarious and addictive. I'm not sure I can recommend them because there is swearing in them. (I'll repent later). Anyway she describes so well people's outfits and shoes in the stores that it just makes me want to go shopping. So that's I did. Gosh there are so many lovely things to own. I really am much happier when I don't know what's out there to have. But the damage is done.
I didn't really buy a lot, just a pair of shoes that I have been dreaming about for the last couple of weeks, two shirts which I needed to buy to match the shoes (those are the kind of shoes I like, ones where you have to buy an outfit to go with them. It means they make a statement). And I went to Once Upon A Child to buy summer shirts for Lauren. While I was there I found an adorable pair of skinny jeans for her. I don't know if we can pull it off, but we are going to try.
I try to be really good and not shop, but it is like this internal need. I can put it off for so long before...I just can't anymore. Then I tend to go a wee bit overboard. So I think that I have discovered a solution: buy something every couple of weeks and that should curb the appetite. I think that I will try it, and if it doesn't work the bonus is I've got a lot of new things :)
