You ask anyone who knows me and they will confirm this as true. I have got to be the easiest person in the world to buy presents for, because the list of things I love, is embarrassingly long.
It’s not that I am an incredibly materialistic person, although I do adore jewellery from Tiffany & Co. - (I am a human girl after all), but I am just as thrilled to head to Lovisa and purchase 3 pairs of earrings for $10. Kmart is an absolute treasure trove of hidden wonders, and I never tire of wandering aimlessly around Target.
I’ve been committed to saving now, for 6 weeks and I am starting to feel the burn. I have perpetual sad face and I am quite ashamed to admit, that occasionally, my happiness is tied to the purchasing of random things.
I have a velvet cushion – velvet is my jam! This cushion is stunningly beautiful…. a rich, deep blue, with button detail, and I love it more than life itself! It cost me $7, from you guessed it…. Kmart! $7 is hardly worth crying about, but if you compile a list of all my $7 purchases, over time there will be a problem.
I spent the past 2 years fantasising about velvet, because I am a very tactile person. I touch everything – appropriately, of course – and there is nothing lovelier to touch, than velvet. During these 2 years of Velvet Dreams, finding objects to satisfy my obsession was a rare treat. Velvet was only beginning to make its triumphant return, and I was there to champion its resurgence, every step of the way.
Guess what’s suddenly in fashion? VELVET!!!!
I’ve seen shoes, jackets, dresses, handbags, and more cushions than I care to acknowledge! On the odd occasion that I dare to venture out to the shops, I walk around briskly, with my gaze fixed firmly to the floor, afraid to make eye contact with the lusciously supple velvet range, that is mocking me with its gloriousness!
I know I will survive this mad attack of consumerism, but in the meantime - perpetual sad face!
