Over the past few years, I have got myself into a good, organised approach to shopping. I no longer sweep up armfuls of clothes while pounding the shopping aisles, I resist the urge to splurge when I am dazzled by the newest nail varnish colours or the latest shade of lipstick, even though they look like they been made just for me.
It might sound boring and no fun whatsoever but it works for me. Gradually,my cupboards were becoming overfilled with things I don't really need and I had too much choice so this is my way to try and make my life much simple. So I create lists of things I need and I stick to it. The things I need could be the regular necessities like deodorant , cotton buds, shampoo or something missing from my wardrobe like a dress for work interviews or a replacement pair of nude heels (one of my wardrobe staples). Then there are moments when I fall of the wagon and sticking to my list goes completely out of the window. This is one of those moments, a pair of shoes that caught my eye that I don't really need but inspired by a Pin. They now reside in my wardrobe and my lists...back to the drawing board along with my good intentions!
