I spent a small fortune in the airport before my holiday a few weeks ago. Well, this may be a slight over exaggeration, but to me it felt like A LOT of money. It wasn’t like it was for a deposit on a house, or a new car, or a first rental payment – these things seem justifiable, right?! It was on something totally vain, because, well, I wanted it.
Not, it’s not quite as self-absorbed as I’m making out, but I did spend a lot of money on a pair of Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses in the duty-free section at Manchester airport. That’s not too bad though is it? To be fair, it’s something I’ve been debating for a while and felt like would be a good investment, and a nice way to treat myself.
I wear sunglasses all the time on holiday, I’m literally never without them during the day, so I’ve been pretty fed up with cheap ones from Accessorize or River Island or Primark just not doing the job. It’s annoying when you’re reading a book and they’re constantly sliding down your face, or you still seem to be squinting with them on.
Anyway, after babbling on and trying to justify my buy (to myself more than anything!), I got thinking that it is actually okay to spend a small fortune every now and then. We shouldn’t feel guilty, we work hard and if we can’t treat ourselves or those around us once in a while, what’s the point?!
I’ve put together a few pros and cons to splashing the cash, or rather me buying these sunnies – can you relate? Do you agree?
They look good. Yes, I know I sound vain, but my new Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses look fab! They go with every outfit choice, suit my face shape, transition from casual to dressy and are my new pride and joy!
Health comes first right and these sunglasses protect my eyes so much more than any others I’ve had. No more squinty squinty.
Overall, they will last much longer. They’re better quality, so the wear and tear won’t show. I’ve gone through so many sunnies over the years, either getting bored of the shape, or just generally ruining them; now I’ve invested in a GOOD pair, they are here to stay.
The initial payment is a lot, so it depends if the funds are there, it won’t make you bankrupt and you definitely feel comfortable making the purchase.
Imagine losing or breaking your new buy….IMAGINE (big gulp, heart sinks). I personally would be devastated, so if you’re prone to accidents or items going walkies, maybe sticking to the cheaper options is better!
There we have it. Take note – there are more pros than cons, so go out and make that buy, treat yourself!
