Treats

I must confess that I'm pretty good about treating myself when I've been working really hard (in psychology we call this "self-care", and it's considered a necessity...don't you just love that?). My holiday weekend is going to consist of working on my dissertation, writing patient reports, and working on internship application materials...so I definitely felt like I deserved a treat. I have a wide range of things that I do for "self-care", which include simple things like allowing myself to sleep in one morning, spending an afternoon with a cup of tea and a book, going to my favorite bagel shop before a long day of studying, and so on. Today I decided to treat myself to a few things off of my fall wish list, which included:


A ladylike camera bag for toting my Canon, lenses, and Holga



A structured mustard jacket with cropped sleeves...perfect for a Florida "winter"



A fun book to read when I need a break from neuro textbooks


What are your favorite ways to treat yourself?

If I am SUPER treating myself (which can't happen often), it would be a new purse!

But when I am really stressed.....a great book or time blocked out for mindless tv entertainment does it for me :)

bah! i've seen that jacket a couple of times and it's so cute. looks luxurious too.
my self-care consists of wine or starbucks. or kupcake factory. generally a food or drink that's bad for me.

Oh my goodness I LOVE that jacket! I enjoy beauty days as a way of treating myself! I LOVE LOVE getting manicures, pedicures, and getting my hair done. It makes me feel so feminine that I just love it. I haven't had a beauty day in a while and I'm starting to feel the effects. :(
