When I become obsessed with something I have to buy it every color. It’s a little bit of a problem, but I thought I’d share some of my latest ones with you so you can start obsessing like me!
Cardigans, wraps and vests! I can never get enough of these. I love them, especially the thin Splendid ones. Every time I see one I usually end up buying it… multiple colors and all. My favorite one right now is a cocoon one from Splendid that I bought at Antropologie. I have it all 3 colors they have but I am bummed they didn’t have it black. I am keeping my eyes open for that one. I also love vests. They add so much to a boring solid tee shirt. I have a great new one that’s cool grey and is very drape-y. Isn’t it cute? I am super excited to wear it. I think they add somuch to a dress, tee shirt or tank top. It can really make your outfit look fresh and new with one item!
Joes Jeans in the Honey Cut. I love love love these jeans. I decided to buy new jeans when my work introduced Summer Jeans Monday- kind of funny we wear jeans in the summer when it’s 118 degrees where I live but I’ll take it. It makes Monday’s so much better knowing I get to throw on my most perfect comfy jeans and a cute shirt! I will be sad because come Labor Day no more Jeans on Monday—boo who! If you are in the market for new jeans I highly suggest these. They are for curvy girls, and I am curvy so they fit perfect!
MAC cosmetics. This habit started when I was probably a sophomore in college. I just started buying fun color eye shadows from MAC and haven’t stopped since. I probably own over 500 eye shadows, with no exaggeration. My husband is always saying NO MORE MAC! But, I don’t listen. I think I am an addict. I haven’t even scratched the surface on most of the eye shadows because I
have so many of them. They are always coming out with new colors too, so I constantly have more to buy! It’s not that expensive of a habit at least. When I had my baby I decided MAC was too young for me and I was going to wear more expensive make up – Nars to be exact and I do still buy that, along with the MAC so my collection keeps expanding. I can tell you I cannot live without Old Gold pigment from MAC. It’s available only at the MAC store. It’s amazing. It’s like a goldish-greenish color. The picture on the right isn’t the right color; it’s just what the pigment looks like. Strangers stop me on the streets to comment on how cool my eye shadow is when I wear that color. It’s so cool. Trust me on this one! It lasts forever too so you’ll have it for years!
Target is also one of my obsessions, I am not sure what gets me going there but I always feel the need to go to Target. I always end up spending $100 no matter if I went in there for one thing or 50 things! Even if I go on my lunch break, so I stopped that, I certainly can’t afford all those trips to Target! Even my little guy says “Momma can we go to Target?” so I started him on it too! I can’t leave without buying him a book or a new matchbox car! I always get suckered into the stationary and pens, office supplies, toothbrush stuff, small travel stuff and they even carry my bumble & bumble shampoo! It’s one stop shopping!
These are the things I am addicted too, I hope I’ve inspired you to admit you have a problem as well, I believe that is the first step!
