Well hello, new followers! I hope very much that I can entertain, bring a smile to your pretty/handsome little face, give you a break from the schenanigans of every day, make you salivate with all the coffee talk...and so forth. I heart you already.
There's a very odd habit that one picks up when you find yourself utterly broke: you don't want to part with anything that is even remotely useful. Why? Because if you throw something out, there is a slight chance that you may need this item (or something like it), and by not having it, you'll have to spend money getting it. You know, money, something you don't have.
Case in point: I ran out of my Shu Uemura Satin Design polishing milk. (The who did the what in the where? It's hair product, kids.) I friggin' love that stuff, but at $33 a bottle, um, yeah, no more for Natty. I happened to have some "styling creme" in my cabinet, so I decided to just use that shizz (since it's already in my possession) for my blow outs.
The crap makes my hair feel like it's infused with Mod Podge. Which, just, ew. So even though this stuff serves its basic purpose (putting any product between the heat and your hair provides some thermal protection, FYI), it's just...not...good. Nothing is worse than petting your own hair (Anyone? No, just me? Alrighty then.) and getting all tangled up and sticky.
Moral of the story: sometimes, no matter your financial status, you've got to pony up and buy the good stuff. Compromise? I will treat myself to a new bottle of Sebastian Potion 9 (which, at $16 a bottle is a nice go-between for this product whore). HOWEVER, I will attain said product with my Target gift card from the Easter Bunny! So I'm not actually spending any money.
Other people's money for the win!
Next order of business: acquire gift cards from Chipotle, Starbucks, and Anthropologie. Then I'll be unstoppable! Bwahahaha!
