We’re not saying to go out and buy a brand new car or anything, BUT we are saying that it’s OK to treat yourself to something nice once in a while. Sometimes we get so wrapped up worrying about bills and money that we forget to have fun. Go out and enjoy a movie with some popcorn or buy something that will last you a while like a new makeup product or body lotion. A nice perfume would be a great way to make you feel a bit luxurious every day as well.
