Treat Yourself

October 25, 2016

This post is sponsored by Zappos. Thoughts and opinions are my own.

In my former life, I used to buy the hottest shoe or designer bag without thinking twice. I may have had to eat ramen noodles for weeks but I would still treat myself. After having Peyton, I can’t think of the last time I treated myself to something nice.  Since becoming a mother, I can think of 100 million things I can do with my time or money than treat myself. I’m trying to change that. I’m starting with my birthday gift to myself, the Stuart Weitzman Highland boots from Zappos.

It took a lot of internal coaching before for I submitted my order on Zappos. I kept thinking of how I could have easily outfitted my whole family, including Mister with new boots but I didn’t. It’s been a week and a half and guess what? Everyone is ok..

Why do we feel like we don’t deserve nice things just because we have kids? We work hard 24-7, with no days off. I decided it was time for me to treat myself, starting with these beautiful boots that I’ve been lusting for years.

    I feel like you wrote this post for me!!!! I’ve been eyeing these exact pair of boots for well over a year now….but as you said since having children (3 to be exact) I don’t splurge on myself like I would before. But these boots are EVERYTHING. My xmas gift to myself.

    So funny, I just went to a new Century 21 in my area today and felt guilty looking through the women’s dept. when the baby needed a new coat. LOL! Funds ARE limited but I haven’t really done anything for myself in a long time. Before the week is out, I’m treating myself to a mani-pedi! 😉

    Love the boots. The mom life is real. It like we’ll spend a million dollars on our kids and not flinch. But go to the mall for ourselves and say “I don’t need it” sigh.

    It’s a mother’s instinct to look out for her family first and we shouldn’t punish ourselves for wanting to do something nice for ourselves. Mama needs a new bag, let’s see how long before I actually get it! 🙂

    Great post as always and right inline with everyday life as a mother. I’ve been treating myself to getting a gel manicure for a year now and I love it! That’s about where it’s stops. I’m guilty just as everyone else thinking of the kids before myself. I would like to treat myself to a MAC laptop in order for me to successfully work on my website/blog and launch my business. The kids messed up my other laptop with viruses.

    So much I want to treat myself to but as usual the kid needs more Fall clothes and the Man could use some new stuff too. I gotta learn to shake this feeling. I’ll start with a new bag…maybe.
