I realized something about myself recently: I will buy anything you’re selling as long as you tell me I need it. It’s not that I want to spend money, it’s that I want to spend money on your “must have” items. It’s bad. I shouldn’t keep falling for ads and pitches. 2015 should be the year I put myself on spending lock down, because I’m way too gullible when it comes to shopping. So there’s my New Year’s Resolution, y’all. Who’s with me?
If you haven’t been into a Teavana yet, spare yourself the pain and agony. You will buy a million dollars worth of tea leaves, and then you will spend a million dollars on all of the accessories. Don’t get me wrong, though. This stuff is delicious. It’s just such a scary place, because every little thing adds up quickly. “The adorable tea tins are on sale? I’ll take twenty!”
This book is a good read, but I don’t think I’m taking away what I should. Instead of becoming a ridiculously powerful yet deliriously happy CEO, I just want to order stuff from Zappos. Smooth, Tony Hsieh. Real smooth. You are a brilliant man and I will be sending you all my money soon.
Toilettree Bath Caddy
I don’t always take baths in my jeans, but when I do I use my Bamboo Bathtub Caddy from Toilettree. Kidding. But I’m sparing you from an awkward bath selfie here, so you’re welcome. The company sent me this adjustable caddy recently and I love it so much more than I thought I would. It has a stand for your book or tablet, a slot for the base of a wine glass, and a space for your smart phone. It also doubles as a “tunnel” for your toddler when he takes a bath. It’s basically perfect.
In my ultimate fall for anything move, I bought a new iPhone. In my defense, the 6 actually does take better pictures. So there’s that. I bought a random cover when I was in the store, but I clearly need a million new fancy cases. I love this one, this one, and this one. I also want to add this one to the list, just because it’s hilarious. So, as you can see, I’ve got some serious decisions to make.
Now here’s the funny one: I fall for marketing jargon where I work. Every time I read about our clothes, I add another thing to the list of must-haves. At this point, they might as well keep my paycheck because I have plans to buy it all. I really love this top right now, because it’s hiding the fact that I ate my bodyweight in cheese dip and chocolate truffles. Best shirt ever.
Question: Are you a sucker for a good sales pitch? If not, please teach me your ways.
