I literally acted like an addict all February. I wheedled my way to my drug (stuff, more specifically bags), and really bent some rules along the way (ok ok 'broke' is probably the more accurate word here). Also I justified buying swimsuits because now I'm trying to swim on a regular basis, but I didn't need to go and buy 8 items from Patagonia (darn that sale). I'm going to be honest here and say I most definitely failed. And now I'm really starting to think I have a problem. I think I might be addicted to shopping (friends who know me well will probably say 'no duh' at this point). I know I love shopping but always told myself I can stop anytime I want (and isn't this what all addicts say). And lo and behold I don't last more than 6 weeks. And when I was trying to reduce my spending on my closet, I found that I ended up spending a lot more on makeup and skin care (but hey on the bright side I did find Bella Cuore). It's like I need to buy something every once in awhile even though I have waaay too much of everything. Well a shopping addiction probably isn't the worse thing in the world (#firstworldproblems), but an addiction to anything can be bad news. At this point I feel like I need to do this just to prove to myself that I can. So back on the shopping ban wagon I go and no more trying to get others to do the dirty work for me (ie buy me gifts, lol)... though March is my birthday month. Ah well, at least no more buying things off of eBay just because I have money in my paypal account. And definitely less spending on skin care and makeup products (but I'm on a hunt for a good tinted sunscreen with coverage or foundation with sunscreen that won't melt off my face come summer...so that quest is still gonna happen). Also no more stuff from Everlane and Grana for the time being because I'm still behind on my reviews. I'm not going to get any more stuff until I'm all caught up and have literally run out of things to write about on this blog (I still have to do my review of the Everlane wide leg pants and a bunch of silk items from Grana as well as their active wear).
