In the last two days I have been to the mall twice. I have to pat myself on the back for being able to walk in to Millenia Mall and not buy anything.
The first trip was to pick up some Nespresso coffee. The wonderful sales person from Saint Laurent had called me a couple of days ago to let me know the shoes I wanted to try on were at the store. Of course since she made it a point to call me and follow up I HAD to go try them on and see how they look and feel on my feet.
UGH why do I put myself through this torture. I think it is to test my strength. I tested it all right, and my will power came out as the victor!
I got my coffee, I window shopped and I took myself home. No retail therapy. I am really proud of myself.
The second day I went to the mall because I have some relatives in town and they wanted to pass some time before we went to dinner. Walking through the Christian Louboutin Trunk Show at Neiman Marcus and Jimmy Choo was a true test of my will power. I was able to not only not even convince myself that I did not want anything I saw but I was also able to recruit my cousin into joining my mission to not shop the rest of the year.
She is going to try it with me. I asked her to look at the rules and see if there was something she might want to add or if she had any questions. It would be really nice if she was able to do this with me. We got into talking about how you can have so much of everything and getting to a point where you have too much of everything.
Let’s see how long we can go with this. It has been three months already! Way to go me!
I can do this…right?
