Love what you've got!


So, if you're anything like me, you love a good shop. There is just nothing like retail therapy. Also, if you are anything like me, shopping gives you temporary amnesia. You see a shiny new thing that you HAVE to buy and forget completely about all the other lovely things at home that you have only used once or twice.

With my wedding and all wedding related expenses coming up, I've been making somewhat of an effort to control my spending. This is not fun for me, nor is it easy, apparently! I've had the day off work today and have honestly been thinking all day about how nice it would be to pop around the corner and buy a new lip gloss/foundation/other random shiny new thing. So far I have resisted but it's gotten me thinking.

It seems that I generally buy things because they're new and buying them will give me instant gratification. I enjoy my shiny new whatever for a couple of days or weeks and then I am already craving something new. I understand that attraction to novelty is a perfectly natural thing for a human to experience, but I find it unfortunate (and so does my bank account) that I can't fully appreciate what I already have. The shiny new thing of today becomes the forgotten dusty thing of tomorrow.

So! In an effort to curb my spending and placate my bank account, I plan to have a weekly feature on the blog where I rediscover a lost treasure and share it with you all. Since it happens to be Tuesday and Lost Treasure Tuesday is a wonderfully awful name for the feature, it shall be so.
