I don't usually splurge on things for myself. I mean every now and then I do, but not often. And then recently at work, I got a sweet little card from my boss with a certificate and gift card. Apparently HR has a program whereby staff can be nominated from various departments for contributions to the team. That in and of itself was a fun surprise that I was thankful for, but made even more so when I realized that there was $30 gift card included in the award. So, it's not a lot, but it was more than enough to make my day and allow me to splurge guilt free on some fun little things just for me.
So, I ended up with these gems below:
1. A silver frame - that I haven't decided where to put or which picture to use in it (but it was a whopping $0.66 from our local thrift store and still in excellent condition, so it came home with me)
2. That cute set of candle holders. I love the swirly design of them. I've been looking for matching candle holders for a while, but am not a huge fan of the really bulky ones that I find everywhere. These are just dainty enough to be pretty and I love them.
3. I also got three new nail polish color. I never buy nail polish because it lasts so long. But, I really don't have many fun colors, so I was happy to add a little coral (ok...I've got lots of pink/coral/red ones already), green, and purple to the mix. The colors I picked were all by Sinful Colors. From right to left, Mint Apple, Dream On, and Island Coral.
I also got these bright green running shorts because let's be real. When I'm not at work I'm wearing running shorts about 75% of the time.
So no, I didn't splurge on anything huge. But it was so fun to get all these little things. And of course, I'm thankful to my co-workers who nominated me for the award.
Happy Monday, guys!
