I was actually telling a friend of mine the other night that I’m going to start living my life like I shop…try to follow me here: When shopping, I ask myself, do i love it- or can’t stop thinking about it? If yes- then i buy. If no- then i pass. I’ve just decided to apply this to my everyday life decisions. The concept is quite simple: only say yes to things you really want/ want to do.
Sounds easy, but it can be tricky. For example, I’d always go to things (i.e. random events in Hollywood that started at 10 on a Tuesday) b/c I had committed, didn’t want to bail and thought I should for the sake of not letting people down. Then I’d find myself leaving after an hour or so and would think: great- time to scrape off this makeup and go to bed- what a waste!
My point is that you could just buy something because it isn’t expensive or because you need something to wear for that party and this will do… OR you can only buy the items that you really like- giving you a closet full of things that make you feel good- instead of one that is packed with snap purchases that you’ll never really want to wear (ever or again).
