New York can be a grind. It’s a city full of dream chasers and overachievers. We pour ourselves into our jobs, working 10, 12, 14 hours days, and follow it up with long nights (obviously this blog doesn’t write itself!). Something in this city pushes us to do more, be better, work harder. We set goals and charge full-speed-ahead after them.
One thing I’ve learned, however, is the importance of not only setting goals, but rewarding yourself for your tenacity in reaching them. It makes those long, caffeine-filled work days a little more worth it.
So this year, after working my buns off at the office and on this blog, I fully embraced the #treatyoself mentality. I closed my eyes, swiped my credit card, and came home with this beautiful saffiano Prada bag.
Sweater: The Limited // Jeans: Denim & Supply (on sale!) // Booties: Nine West (on sale!) // Scarf: Lizzibeth (loving these) // Bag: Prada // Bracelets: Stella & Dot (bangle and spikes), effYbee (gold and silver) // Watch: Marc Jacobs
Everyone dreams of having nice things and being successful. So when you’re pouring that third cup of coffee, exhausted from your daily grind, just remember to keep in mind it’s OK to reward yourself for that hard work. Find something you really want and save a little bit each week toward it. Remember though, you have to earn the right to #treatyoself.
And trust me, it feels a lot better to head to the office every morning in that new pair of designer heels or with that new courture bag.
