Did you make a recent purchase for yourself that wasn’t a necessity but more of a splurge? Please share.
Shoes and clothes.
I went to the salon and got a perm. I hadn't been to the salon in over a year. I wanted to look nice for the holidays.
Would you believe that it used to take 2 perms to do my already curly hair? Needed to have spiral curls. Or are we talking straightening perm?
You must have thick hair. I have hair on the normal to fine side. I get flat on top and Nellie curls in the back. Once a year I get a perm to even out the curls and to keep my hair from wrapping around my neck.
I have a lot of hair. It’s coarse and fine in some areas. It’s really weird.
If you have naturally curly hair it can't be that weird. I bet it's lovely.
I got a spiral once. I felt like I was too poofy.
Not really. I bought jeans that weren't a part of my budget, but I bought them because I had developed holes in the rest of my plain black ones.
I flew to Prague, but I'm here for job interviews, and flew on separate tickets (one paid for in cash, one paid for in miles) so it only cost about $350.
So I'd say no, I've been fairly responsible with my money recently.
I love comic books and have been spending a lot on them recently. More than normal... I should probably stop
I shop GoodWill for many reasons.
Found two Blenko water pitchers. $4.99 each.
I’ve done quite a bit of that over the past couple of weeks. It’s all been on makeup and skin care. I’ve been told that I have an elaborate skin care regimen. I could probably get away with just one cleanser and moisturizer, but I truly enjoy the process of using all of the different products. As for makeup, it’s just fun for me. Everything was on sale, too.
New pants, my old ones had holes
Got a motorcycle. First one
I'm thinking about splurging on a nice hotel for my birthday in Vegas I haven't decided yet.
I just bought an Apple Watch. Definitely a splurge
I got one as a Christmas gift last year. A first version. I love it!
I got the series 3. Awesome watch. I feel like Michael Knight. I want to change Siri’s name to Kitt.
The massage was a necessity the happy ending a splurge.
I kid I kid. No recent splurges.
A pasta roller attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer. I just want to try it.
A kitchenaid is on my long list. I could do so many things with one...
And there’s always something new to try. I hope yours comes for Christmas!
Case and PSU, still waiting for the motherboard/CPU, all so I can use up an otherwise wasted 4GB memory stick. The plan is to set up an Ubuntu based Plex server to feed the new TV we're getting each other for our anniversary next month, along with the four others. With as many PCs as we already have, we don’t really *need* another...but I do just gotta have it.
AR9 Pistol Caliber rifle
That’s a pretty nice weapon of choice.
Just got a STAR PD (45 ACP) . . . Great carry gun.
Some clothes for school.
Off road motorcycle. In my mind it's a necessity, but most would disagree.
You could say our vacation was a splurge.
Brand new modem for the house.
I’m getting one next week. Turns out mine is way old and I’m not getting all the speed I’m paying for.
Same reason I got mine. The old one still worked but the new one woo buddy lol
Smashbox Babe Alert lipstick
I just bought new foundation from IT cosmetics.
Some nice clothes, wanted to look fly
I bought a crap ton of ROCK CANDY because it’s amazing and a lot of nose rings...... yikes now that I️ read that I️ see how ridiculous I️t looks 😂😂😂
A movie ticket - saw Blade Runner with my son.
Google Home Mini.
Six pack of beer.
Bought an electric pole saw to trim the tree limbs.
Nope, shit broke
I went through my purses to switch and was feeling bored with them so I ordered a new one on Amazon. It was on sale for $23.66! Woot!
I heart a deal!
I was so tickled! It has great reviews so I hope it’s as nice as it looks.
Nice makeup and brushes
What’s your go to brand?
This time it was It, a brand ulta carries. Literally went in on a whim w my mom and these makeup artists with It were doing ppls makeup for free, so I had them show me some techniques and suggest products, they had deals on their brand tho it was still a splurge lol
For eyeshadow tho i do still love the naked pallettes. The eyeliner pen I got from It is the best tho, first one to not flake all day!
I love it! I just bought their foundation with their new brush. I’ve been using it for a year and it’s really the only thing that looks good.
Ooh that is awesome!! I got a brush set from them, and foundation! It has 50 spf, the lady said i look like i dont go outside 😂 but it looks way better than anything else ive used, plus it hells to have a makeup artist match the shade for me, that part is so hard!
Yes! One of the ulta salespeople tried to switch me to urban decay’s naked and she had me in a shade that made me look like a corpse. They let me exchange it for my IT in Light. I also got their universal brown pencil.
Ugh thats so annoying! Im glad they let you switch! What brand do you usually use? Its so important to know what stuff flatters, im so glad I got advice from someone knowledgeable! They were giving products away with certain IT purchases cuz of the event and I got that brow pencil as one of them, it looks really good i think!
My niece got me into Lorac which was supposed to be full coverage but all it did was cling to my chronically dry skin. I also use L’Oréal revitalift which I swear by and nutrogena hydro boost. Both moisturize intensely. That helps but I think IT works best because of the formulation.
Oh thats interesting! I have the same issue with any foundation type stuff, also have very dry skin. I cant stand not moisturizing everything after a shower. Soo many foundations cling wierd to the driest parts! The foundation I got from IT doesnt do that. Its literally the first lol, no wonder we both love it 😂
This whole thread should get us free IT for life! Lol
bought a new limited edition Tumi backpack
I bought makeup for myself. It’s not cheap but it’s seriously amazing. I don’t normally spend money on myself but when I do, I make whatever I buy last.
Yesh. Final Fantasy VII and IX, and the original Halo just 'cause it was cheap and historically important. Getting closer to completing my modern FF collection :).
Collection must be completed! 🙂
Video games? When you could read a book?
I'll meet you halfway, Doc...
I guess every time I buy books? I recently bought a book by Samir Amin called "Egypt, Nasserism and Communism" and it's really good.
