Day 2: 5:47am I’m awake. Look at the glow of notifications on my phone and I really hope it’s eBay notifications that more items have sold.
Nope. Just facebook alerts.
Now it’s time to check eBay to see what I have left. Check done. No new bids and no items of mine have ended auction. Time to look at the facebooks and turn off notifications for some of the stories that alerted me unnecessarily.
Quick scroll through my feed and then I spot this:
Mental note: Take a look at this in 39 days and see if your mind still lusts after this.
Now it’s time to go through emails.
Zara— Yes! Notification that the sandals I ordered last week (totally ok by the 40 days of no shopping rule) have arrived at the store. Will go pick them up later today. Feminine, flirty, and chevrons. I just love you.
As long as I’m already here, I might as well look at other shoes right? Yeah! Luckily Zara clothes don’t fit me right at all or this website would be more compelling.
Then these beauties catch my eye. That Sea Green color. Perfection. I imagine myself wearing these with cropped skinny khakis near a boat or something. A boat? Yeah seriously, because it’s sea green obviously, even thought there are no such boats in my life.
Scrolling some more to find these:
Hello lover! Ever since I have started following @songofstyle I have wanted black and white sneakers. She has a flare of clean and modern in her urban trendy sneaker style that I adore. These definitely fit the bill.
All these things are on the list for visiting after 40 days. It’s 7am now. Ugh.
Quickly headed over to William Sonoma to check out All-Clad d5 pans from an email they sent. Then rapidly deleted the rest of my shopping emails trying not to eye their pretty and alluring photos. Suddenly coming to the realization that I *might* have more of an addiction to shopping that I thought, learned via composing this article and it’s only day 2.
Oy. ASOS just sent a 70% off email. Quick look here as well, scrolling has me tired, close window, crisis averted. Day off today, so I’m going back to bed.
