How many things are you saving for a “special occasion”? I’m definitely guilty of this. Whether it’s a special outfit, price-y beauty products, or your wedding shoes, what are we really waiting for?
I’m trying to be more “in the moment” these days, and stop worrying so much about the future or always being so responsible. (Once when I was a teenager my dad told me that he thought I was too responsible. How many parents of teenagers say that?) So, I’m pulling out my favorite shoes, ripping the price tags off those dresses I’ve been saving for something special, and using the expensive beauty products lined up in my bathroom!
Last week I shared my latest Coco Rocha Fancy Box which included this hair care travel set. The set cost $40 and is normally something that would have set untouched for months, if not, forever, because I didn’t want to just waste it. I mean, not using it is wasting it, right? And just because my normal shampoo only runs me about $6, doesn’t mean I shouldn’t take advantage of a bottle or two that costs a bit more. So, I used it on Friday. And I loved it. My hair felt extra silky, extra soft, and since I thought I’d save it for a “special” day, Friday became a special day.
My challenge to you is this: find one item, whether clothing, jewelry, perfume, makeup, or another beauty product you’ve been saving and USE it. In fact, tell me what you’re using, I want to know!!
