Hi, everyone. This is my first official post as a Plotting Princess, and I’m thrilled to be here. I’ve been trying to decide what to write about instead of just talking about who I am, what I write (Contemporary Romance), etc. I came up with a subject that might be near and dear to many hearts.
I’m not much of a girlie-girl, but I like to indulge every so often. I love shoes, but due to a knee injury, I’ve had to give up all my gorgeous heels and wear flats. I adore handbags, but I pretty much use a tote bag. For my job, it’s all business clothes. So how can I indulge in something that feels extravagant and not go broke?
Nail polish! A few months ago I joined a “club” in which I get 3 nail polishes every month. I adore trying the gorgeous new colors, and have stepped WAY outside my box with blues, silvers, purples, greens, metallics, glitters(!), and of course, my favorite: red.
I decided to get organized, and make a swatch sheet with all the colors, so now it’s easy to decide which to use. I can go elegant, romantic, funky, sedate, or wild.
When I was through, the drawer looked like a treasure chest dripping with jewels. Aren’t they pretty? And the fact they’re in identical bottles makes my heart go pitty-pat.
How do you indulge your girlie-girlness? Do you go all out, or pick one or two things to focus on?
