Retail Detox Update!

I am totally in the home stretch of the retail detox now. I honestly can't believe I made it this far! What a challenge and much harder during the Christmas holiday than I thought it would be. Just so many enticing sales, but I resisted (mostly)


I only have 8 measly days left and there is no stopping me now!
I have to admit that this past week was a breeze because I was so busy!  My monogramming business (Silver Needle Designs) was in full force for Christmas, so I really didn't even have time to think about shopping for gifts for others, much less shopping for myself.
As you can see, I don't dress up too much to go work down in my "sweatshop"
 as my friends lovingly refer to my studio.
But, this hoodie does have a little something extra!
Isn't this fabulous?! 
 It was actually an early Christmas gift from a friend. 
 I had to wear it right away.
So fun, so festive, so me!!
With a wonderful gift like this, who needs to shop!?
As I finish out my detox these last 8 days, I can honestly say that I only purchased the $10 sunnies and the sequin skirt that I ended up sending back due to fit issues. 
 Pretty darn good HUH????

Now, don't think I am going to go all crazy shopping after Christmas and undo what I just accomplished. 
 I have a list of needs and wants and will attempt to shop methodically and smart!

Have a great Monday!

Congrats on the shopping ban! You are doing great :) What a cute hoodie too!

I finally got my hands on some of those cinnamon M&Ms, no wonder you and your son ate the whole bag! Those little guys are yummy :)

You have nice friends!

It must be HARD to not shop while shopping for others. That's when I buy myself the most for some reason. I'm very bad.

Oh, this is such a fun and cute look! I'm so impressed you made it the whole 100 days! I tried and then I failed and then I just stopped trying. lol
