retail therapy

So there's comfort food, there's fluffy pyjamas. And i also totally believe in the value of a little bit of retail therapy every now-and-again, just to feel a bit better. within reason, you know! so i've been thinking about the blog this challenge this week - and just have to share with you my latest little buy...

i don't know why, but i have a little obsession with the colours red & orange. i'm strangely attracted to bright things. so when wandering around my local witchery store one day, out of the corner of my eye, i saw a flash of orange. i didn't know what it was, but i had to have it :) Imagine my delight when it was a scarf! (something else i'm obsessed with - one can never have too many scarves!).

And it didn't stop there, oh no.

It was a scarf.

with pockets.

for your hands: to keep your hands warm!

and i thought... how kitsch!







but, my friends, call it the GFC*, call it self control, But it didn't buy it that day. or the next. In fact, it was only a few weeks later when i walked back in the store, to see if it was still there... and it was! AND ON SALE!!!!!!!!!!

and then i was sold :)





and as for convincing my husband i needed an orange scarf with pockets for my hands?

...conveniently he was on an interstate work trip at the time... *wink*
