It's a well-known fact, that I am bad at shopping for me. I love finding clothes/books/toys/anything for my nearest and dearest, but for myself - huh. I keep asking myself do I really need this, can I really afford that... And of course being a self-employed is not getting you any richer (money-wise that is) and I cannot spend as much as I used to, and in many cases it's just easier to leave the shop without buying anything. But then again: sometimes a girl just needs to spoil herself.
We, me&sis, are going to have a little girls only-trip to Helsinki in a few weeks. We'll stay there Fri-Sun and explore the city (very familiar to both of us, we've lived there some years while studying) and maybe some shops too. But but but...Before I can hit the shops there, I need to have pretty clothes and a new bag. But naturally.
I have been looking a large yet beautiful leather bag for a long time. I have seen a few, but they've always been far too expensive. I like almost-affordable brands like Benetton, BjörnBorg and Esprit (both bags and clothes) but their larger bags are still quite expensive here. Today after my last appointment with my dentist (last for this tooth, yippee, it's shiny and beautiful!) I wandered to see local shops, and saw the bag I fell in love immediately. The only down-side was the brand (not one of my favorites, actually never heard of it before) so I needed to consult my sister. I took a call to her holding the bag tightly in my hands and after gotten her "I would take it if you love it and it's on sale and I will use it if you will not" approval I bought the bag. It's big, blond and and beautiful, and just so me. Now I only need the clothes to match but that's an another story altogether.
Happy weekend dearest!
P.S. Please ignore the sausage-rolls around my waistline, they really are layers of clothing. Really.
