Black (and White) Friday Shopping

Over 6 months ago I placed myself on a one month shopping ban. The first week I felt some slight discomfort, the second I had some residual shopping urges, the third week was painless and one month grew into six months before I knew it. Not to say that this was a totally seamless transition, it meant that I had to find other ways to spend my me-time. Rather than perusing Feather’s vintage racks on a Sunday afternoon I would try a new recipe. Instead of idly pinning items to my wishlist in my downtime I would stay off my computer — which as a consequence lead to the demise of this blog. Oops. But with my recent birthday I had the urge to treat myself, and that urge really never went away. I’ve had healthy bouts of Olsen-inspired pinning sprees and one fruitful shopping outing.  So in the spirit of black Friday, here are is my current wish list.

PS have you smelled the Olsens’ latest perfume? There is a black scent and a white one, I much prefer the white and I’ve been picking up a free sample at Sephora every time I stop in — did you know you could do that?
