How Easy is it for YOU to Blow 250.00?

January 24, 2011

1. Satin evening shoes you’ll wear once a year, if you’re lucky.

2. Food and cocktails to host a casual dinner party with a few friends.

3. One hair salon visit that may include a mani and pedi but NOT an eyebrow waxing.

4. Good seats at a live concert plus a souvenir book, hat, t-shirt and cd.

5. A spontaneous trip to the mall with your shopaholic best friend.

250.00. Easy to blow on momentary pleasures and a few fond memories. But here’s the question…will any of these things bring you years of joy and happiness? Can you pass it down as an heirloom, from your children to your children’s children and beyond? Does it capture your attention, stroke your ego and light your fire each and every time you look at it? Can you move it from room to room, house to house, office to office, anywhere and everywhere you go?

It’s important today to spend your money wisely, on things that matter. Art matters. And the piece that speaks to you personally, that captures your heart and tickles your fashionable fancy, well, that’s the piece that matters most of all, don’t you think?

Get ready for FASHION + ART…it’s coming…

    Well said and i couldn’t agree more! Thanks for visiting me this weekend! I’ll readily buy art instead of furniture too:-). Love your blog! XX

    Thank you, Ladies! You know how easy it is for money to slip through our fingers just ‘running errands’ on a Saturday morning.

    I mourn with you re the closing of the Pier 1 in your area-major loss!:-)

      It was definitely on my Saturday morning run list back in the day, Stacey.

    Completely agree. Would much prefer to have a bottle of wine with friends and enjoy a piece of art every day. Thanks for your comment earlier – I have the same problem – color always finds it’s way in somehow!

    Well, you definitely said it right. I have been debating whether to buy Sade tickets (the group rarely goes on tour) or buying items for my home and it has not been an easy decision. Your post is a new perspective, so thanks!

      Oh-oh, Mustard Seed. Sade puts on quite a show. There are exceptions to every rule, you know :-).
