I thought I was done buying things once Christmas came, but there were some things I still needed or “needed.” So I thought I’d link up with Becky today for treat yourself Tuesday.
Since I got my first set of essential oils for Christmas, I have been treating myself to some lavender oil diffusing in my bedroom at night. I can’t tell if it is making me sleep better yet, but my room definitely smells amazing.
Then I decided I wanted another pair of jeans. I only have 2 jeans that I wear, both purchased from Ann Taylor in the last 2 years. I guess I buy one pair a year to grow my collection lol. Of course I only buy them when on sale. That is not too hard for Ann Taylor considering the number of sales. 60% off after Christmas sale was too hard to pass up. Hopefully they arrive soon. My older pair seems to have shrunk and I know it’s not my body because both of my jeans are the same size, brand and everything from Ann Taylor and one fits better than the other. The bad thing about the jeans I buy is the ink they use to make the jeans dark. When I rest my hands in my lap, my palms get a bit sweaty and the ink rubs off and my hands become blue. I freaked out a bit the first time I got the jeans, because I really thought my hand was blue, but it wasn’t cold and then I realized it washed off and knew it was from the jeans. They even dyed the inside of my boots a bit last year with my new pair and they dye my hands for months and many washes after. I just love the material and how comfy they are. So soon I may have smurf hands or be washing my hands a ton to not freak people out lol.
Did I mention I went a little crazy and ordered some stuff online? There was also this after Christmas sale with holiday Philosophy products. A couple years ago, Brian’s aunt gave me a travel size Have a Cherry Christmas shower gel and I loved it. The little bottle stays in my gym bag for when I shower at the gym. Of course eventually the little bottle gets empty and needs to be replenished and it is only available around Christmas. So I have started to get a big bottle each Christmas to use throughout the year. I also get the Peppermint after trying it last year. I love mint scents!!
Christmas time also meant lots of sweets and so I am trying to get back to eating better now that the holidays are over. I loved that I was able to do so much food prep this weekend allowing me to throw together meals quickly after work. Last night I enjoyed this hamburger topped with homemade salsa and half an avocado and enjoyed roasted veggies and rice on the side. Home cooked, healthy, delicious meals make me so excited to eat!!
I treated myself to a night in last night too. I was supposed to go to a yoga class, but I was so tired all day at work (which I think partly was due to the fact that work was a ghost town with at least 50% of the office on vacation still) and I was feeling the beginnings of a cold with a bit of a sore throat and a running nose. I am going to make sure I get tons of vitamin C this week and going to try be to good about getting to bed on time to get better quickly.
That’s all the treats I have for now. Be sure to check out my reflection posts. Part 1 will go up today and part 2 tomorrow. Perfect way to end the year!!
Do you shop any after Christmas sales?
