We all heard the saying that impulsive shopping is a bad habit and all. But we all have varying parameters on what we love (and have to!) splurge on and what we buy strictly on slashed price. For example, some people splurge on sports car while going cheap on undergarments, while some others go dirt cheap on clothing and splurge on face creams. No, please don’t blame them and be all self righteous first. We’re human and priorities were set in stone for some of us. A real life proof would be my friend’s mother who was very (VERY) strict on what she slathers on her face, despite being behind on her insurance payments. In her defense, her skin is glowing like a newborn baby’s pink buttocks.
We human are complicated
little shits indeed. We (read: I) took hours researching the best face creams and lotions while we have millions of other things that are obviously more important to do, such as writing for the blog and working on deadline and all. Ahem. Anyways, I found that I’m actually perfectly normal after finding out that I have some friends who would read every label on every food before they eat it, but eat at McDonalds (and similar health food chains) once a week. Classic.
Bottom line: we have different freakish obsessions toward different things, and we end up splurging mindlessly on some of those things. Confession: my biggest mindless splurge would be makeups (DUH!), drawing tools, and books. YES PEOPLE, WOMEN WHO DO MAKEUP CAN BE IN LOVE WITH BOOKS TOO YOU KNOW, GET OVER IT.
What’s your splurging guilty pleasure? Don’t tell me you ain’t got one cos I know you be lyin’!
