I am a shopaholic! yes, i said it and it’s true. It was worse when i was single when i didn’t have any obligations or major payments due. However i still sometimes go into a store for one thing and come out with 10 other stuff that wasn’t on my list. I am at my worst when i go to stores like Homegoods, Target or H&M! There are always those few items that i LOVE to buy but don’t really need ( because i already have them piled up in my house…)
5 things i love to buy but don’t really need
Especially lifestyle magazines and home inspired ones. I love to read through them and get inspiration. I honestly have piles of them in my home office and it just keep growing. It’s something that i really enjoy reading through and it makes me happy so i consider it sometimes as a gift to myself.
OK, who can pass by a paper source shop and not come out with something? I can’t! The smell of a brand new notebook or the feeling of a new agenda just puts a smile on my face. And i am a sucker for cute cards and notepads too. There is just something about going old school and still jotting down your to-do list in a beautiful notepad, then on your smartphone.
When browsing through a home store i will always check out the candle department. There is always a new type of scent i don’t have yet that i want. Candles in the house my me feel calm and homey. Some of the more luxury brands are of course incredibly expensive, which is why they will stay on my wishlist for now. However, brands like Molton Brown or Voluspa has some great options for less money
Coffee Table Books
They are so chic yet so unnecessary lol. It’s not really that i read them but some of them are just so pretty. I use them sometimes in my Instagram pictures or for inspiration but other than that they are just pretty to look at. I recently discovered Bookdepository which has all my favorites for way less and free shipping worldwide
I love to do my nails myself simply because i don’t have the patience sometimes to do it in a salon. I would go pick up a new shade here and there just to come home and realize i have plenty of similar ones already in my beauty cupboard. My all time favorite ones are from the H&M beauty line, they are cheap and the application is really smooth. I reviewed them in this post.
