$50 Guilt Free Spending

In my debut post for Girl Talk Thursday I have nothing interesting to write about! What would I spend $50 on guilt free? I have been thinking about this all day and still, I'm reaching for ideas. My birthday is next Monday and I have no idea what to tell my family for ideas either. I'm lucky that I have everything I need I guess.

I am a bag girl. I LOVE bags. So I guess my first answer would be a new Vera Bradley bag of some sort. I'm not partial to any colors or size but I will add that it has to have two straps and not just one.

Dinner out at someplace like The Melting Pot. I'm not sure if the $50 would cover the meal but it'd cover 5 hours of babysitting. FTW.

Oooh, I know. I would go get a manicure/pedicure and I'd pay for the more expensive option where they rub your legs and feet with sea salt and delicious smelling oils for like 20 minutes. Or maybe a 30 minute hot stone facial... yeah either of those things would be great.

Maybe I'd get my legs waxed... maybe not.

I'm all with MommyMelee for the art of therapy shopping. Sometimes you just have to buy yourself something, a little reward for doing a good job at work, or a "congrats, you made it through the week" type of thing. I am a Consumerist. I like my stuff, my earthy, Taurus make-me-feel-grounded stuff I can put my hands on and say "it's mine precious." I just can't think of anything I really, really want right now!

Ohhh a massage is a good idea. Or a nice pedi. I have gnarly nails so I always have to plan one like a month ahead of time so they're not COMPLETELY gross.

I like your ideas.
