|Shoes - Primark; Dress - Monsoon|
I wasn't brought up with this frivolous materialism I have to say, but when I got my first full time job I seemed to go mad, and now my idea of fun is shopping. I've totally missed the mark, and as I look around at all the things I have I wonder how many experiences it's all robbed me of? How many holidays have I missed out on because I didn't have the money? How many concert tickets could I not afford to buy? How many nights out have I had to decline because frankly I've spent all of my money on things. It's no way to live, and whilst I know I am going to find it so difficult to change the way I am, I do need to change.
In the end over half of these bags have ended up on the pile to be sold at this weekend's boot sale. Some of them have only been used once or twice, or even not at all... so why did I buy them? There's loads more on the boot sale pile too, and still there is yet more that will be finding its way to charity shops and car boot sales over coming weeks. Items I have worn once or not at all, things that have never been used and should never have been bought. Don't get me wrong I'll never get rid of everything, stop shopping at all, and never make any more clothes (or post more outfit shots)... that's just not me, but I need to remember that those aren't the important things in life. The things that make life rich are the experiences you enjoy, the life you live and the people who you love and who love you back.
