I’ve always been careful with my money.
When I first started working, I used to live at home and I would save half of my fortnightly income.
My parents would often call me “a saver” and “a careful spender” when describing my relationship with money, which – at the time – I wasn’t sure if they were teasing me for being a thrifty tight-ass haha.
As the years went by, my girlfriends started their handbag collections with Pradas and LVs… yes I was quite envious – but I had other priorities, I got married at 24, bought a house, had a baby and well… things were really tight for us.
It has only been in the last couple of years that we’ve found a comfortable space; my online business is doing incredibly well, and I’ve started to spend (invest!) a bit more on little luxury items for my wardrobe.
I guess it also helps that there are so many designer sales on too!
Which leads me onto my latest purchase.
I recently finished a huge freelance job and rewarded myself with a special little something (with the help of a gift card too, courtesy of Shopbop).
It’s just a wee little thing, but I absolutely love the delicate and feminie details on it.
It’s perfect for my smaller handbags. It’s pretty and practical.
Anyway, this time Shopbop are having a 25% off all items from their Designer Boutique section – which is pretty amazing!
Just use the code “DESIGNER25” at the checkout, until July 14, 2016, at 7p.m AEST.
For me, being that little bit older and wiser, I can appreciate my little luxuries and they are all the more special to me.
Hope you enjoy the sale! And hope you manage to find a comfortable space for yourself for little luxuries too.
Have an amazing week everyone!
