'Treat Yo Self' Advocate

Hello lovelies! Today's post is one my inner shopaholic is very excited about. When looking around, It's hard to find a person who doesn't love a good shop or spending money on something they love. And I'm not just talking about materialistic things here, y'all can treat yo self to experiences too. So today we're gonna chat about why I'm an advocate on treating your self.

The reason I am such an advocate for this topic is because when done sensibly there's no reason not to. Of course when you don't have the money to buy the coat or go out for the meal or even book the holiday you shouldn't do it because debt is crapperooni. However when you do have the oppurtunity to save or spend DO IT.

Because why the fuck not.

I get that in the case of materilistic things that there are more important things in life. However if you're into fashion or books or you collect figurines, there's no reason you should not invest into that passion. Some times the things we can buy make us happy. I know for me wearing a new piece of clothing always gives me that sassy rush where I feel like I could take on the world so why do we deny ourselves this because of the risk of feeling guilty?

We only get one life, we're expected to work from pretty much start to finish so why the hell should we not spend the money we tirelessly earn. Life's too short to think, well I want it but I don't need it really. No I don't need another coat Ive got 8 already but does that stop me gazing at the jacket section on ASOS no it does not. Because I am obsessed with coats and there is nothing wrong with that.

Maybe you spend your money on football season tickets or marvel comic books, it doesn't matter as long as it makes you happy. Because yes material things can make us happy, the problem comes when we rely on material things for our happiness. Happiness can be found in many places and doesn't always have to include waiting for a delivery. This brings me onto experiences.

There's nothing more important than living. Whether if it's snuggled up in bed with your significant other (in my case my cat) or if you're jumping off cliffs into blue oceans. We all find happiness in different experiences. And yet for these experiences to happen you do need to splash a lil dolla. When you're hips don't work and you're too old to travel or in some cases even nip to the shops. You're gonna wish you spent that grand on going to Paris that's now sitting in your bank waiting to be inherited by you're shit head of a grandchild. Harsh, I know.

Don't feel bad for spending money on life.

Having money isn't impressive, it's what you do with it.

I'm going to close this with a precaution, don't ever invite me shopping or ask me a money involving decision because I will tell you to spend/buy and I will not apologise. Cos darl, TREAT YO SELF.
