Difficult Quandaries All Lead to Cashmere and Bubbles

Just when I'm supposed to put my nose to the grindstone, sale season strikes, causing my wallet to tremble and then veritably twinge with desire for new presents (all for me!). Ooops...

I bought a ridiculously pink and fluffy cashmere sweater on sale from Old Navy, and although it seems they only have a few colors left, this yellow one does seem equally Legally Blonde. (All things Legally Blonde are good.) Also, the weave is very thick for the price, under $40. And yet...there are so many other beautiful objects to buy.

To scratch a shopping itch, it's good to first try to calm down and appreciate one's inner life. Bubbles help too. For this purpose, Kiss My Face's Anti-Stress Shower Gel with natural fir and lavender oils is very grounding. Love it!



This bubbly bath stuff worked for about an hour. Then, I found a beautiful silk dress by Alice Ritter (79% off, but only in a size 2) on Bluefly.com and a super-cute Victoria's Secret lip balm that beckoned...Should a girl bite the bullet? Especially if she's in agony?





One really should avoid suffering, when at all possible....

Buy it, merely a recommendation: Scoop Neck Cashmere Sweater ($37), Old Navy, Kiss My Face Anti-Stress Shower Gel ($6), Whole Foods; Alice Ritter Size 2 Cognac Dress ($120), Bluefly; Kiss Me Now! Lip Balm ($12), Victoria's Secret currently in-store only.

Funny but informative post...and blog. I hid my credit card deep in my handbag so that I couldn't get to it as easliy. But to my dismay, my trickery did not work. There is no cure, is there?

I bought the same cashmere sweater in green for $20 at my local Old Navy. They were having a 50% off discounted items sale. It is soooooo soft.
