Ok, with literally days left until the big 3-0 I’m slowly ticking away at my 30 Under 30 list. Now for Number 29: I think this is quite possibly the MOST exciting number on the list. Well, except for maybe Number 1– Get Married — obviously. Number 29 is Buy Myself One Luxury Item. So the reason for this self-giving is not just because I’m incredibly fond of myself and wish to give myself a great birthday gift . . . well, it is all those things but the real reason is this: I spent most of my twenties studying. First undergrad, then my master’s degree, then law school. I was always a full-time student and when I wasn’t studying I was the low-man-on-the-totem pole type thing. Every nice thing I own is a product of a gift from someone else (I love the Jimmy Choos Pete and the Coach watch is amazing Mom & Dad). So this gift to myself is really about stepping into the next phase of my life, my thirties, with more stability and with that comes the ability to splurge a little on myself and not be as dependent upon other people.
All that being said, I’m sure you are just dying to know what I got, right!? Well, here it is:
What’s that sound you ask? Oh those are just the angels signing. Ahhhhhhhhhh!
I fell in love with this Kate Spade handbag. Its so gorgeous! Plus its my favorite color-pink! Although it also came in a turquoise or a yellow and it was a really difficult choice. But in the end the pink won out.
I even love the bag it came in! 🙂 Kate Spade New York- you made my 30th!!
Readers, do you have an item that you bought for yourself that means a lot to you?
