Thank you ladies.. I know this is late in posting..lol but I feel validated and not so guilty.. the problem is as I get thinner I see more things that would look fantastic on me and the willpower starts to slide. Hopefully I can hold off a bit longer though, I hate to get the next size down only to have to buy another size down in a couple months. Thanks again :)

It sounds like you have gone a long time without spoiling yourself, although I don't believe getting beauty supplies is actually "spoiling." It's part of taking good care of ourselves and it's very healthy and necessary.

And updating a wardrobe to look good and look current is part of our self-esteem, and also plays a big role in how we are viewed by others. Nobody wants to be frumpy and unkempt.

So let go of the guilt and enjoy what you did for yourself. You're worth it!

Remember that the little things we do each day matter.

I'm pretty sure my tally is almost a thousand for July. I'm a teacher, too. I'm supposed to be on a budget-but summer sales hit and my willpower goes to pot!

OMG, if it was only $100 at Sally, don't feel bad!
My spouse and I both went shopping in July. We were in the thousands last month.

EVERYONE knows EXACTLY what they NEED to do to be fit, healthy, and slim.
The problem is, nobody does it.

I'm a teacher, and each summer I allocate one paycheck for new clothes/shoes/bags/etc. It's usually the only time I have for shopping off-island - and I usually manage to hit sales.

So trust me, you aren't alone!!!!

Girl, I am right there with you. So far I have bought myself an Adrienne Vittadini sweater, Express skinny jeans, a pair of Bvlgari sunglasses, and ordering a pair of Bvlgari perscription glasses. And it isn't even the end of July yet....... emoticon

Ok so I blew over 100 bucks at Sally Beauty Supply today and I'm feeling pretty guilty about it! But I feel like all the stuff I bought was stuff I knew I'd 'need' and use and I dunno, it's just the first time in a really super long time that I've spent a lot of money on JUST me and I know I deserve it, but wow.. Just trying to make strides to start taking care of myself as well as everyone else, and it feels good, but sort of strange! anyhow I hope everyone else out there is spoiling themself in some fabulous way! (at least then I'm not alone!) :)
