What is your one "luxury" item? Expensive shampoo, getting your nails done, etc? If you don't have one, what would you like it to be?
My camera and multiple lenses.
Makeup - I only wear Clinique! It's expensive but worth it.
I dunno. My gadgets? We get new ones every 18 months to 2 years. And we always buy THE BEST phone. Or THE BEST laptop. I have an iPad but I bought it used and it's an older model.
I never get my nails done, I never get my hair done. I barely wear makeup. I eat out at Taco Bell which doesn't cost that much. I don't spend that much money on clothes. So yeah. Gadgets lol.
My nails... which look AWEFUL right now. I keep them really short but I like them painted nicely. Makeup and skin care have been my thing lately.. I am addicted to sephora.
Hmmm... I get mani/pedis now and then, and the occasional massage... but these things are not really luxuries price-wise (very cheap here in Laos- my last mani/pedi cost $16 all up, and massages are less than $10.) they are more luxuries time-wise! I do spend money on good food. Traveling (like the three weeks we are about to spend in Bali, Thailand and Malaysia) is definitely a luxury of ours, although very normal for where and how we live.
Funny thing, it's almost more of a luxury for me to buy American ibuprofen for my daughter, and have it shipped over here. She won't take any local brands, but we end up spending a lot of the buying and then shipping of things like that!
I only get one or two luxuries? Boo!
I get my nails done every few weeks-- I like them really short, but keep Shellac on them so that they are always painted and chip free. Kind of a must with the work that I do.
I also make sure that I make time for myself. I go to the gym and "allow" myself that down time, away from kids and work to re-focus.....I need it.
If I could-- I'd love to hire a housekeeper and not worry about any housework....maybe some day!
