The older I get, the more I value easiness, tranquility, and security. My interests of course still remain the same—I don’t think I’ll ever NOT be into clothes and makeup but the way I consume them has. For instance, I no longer have a bad shopping habit–of course I still shop, I just don’t do it as impulsively. Instead I like to evaluate how an item is going to really do the most for either my closet or makeup stash. I want to do more with less: instead of the like 10-15 eyeshadow palettes I have (and only use like 1-2 at any given time), I want to have one, MAXIMUM two that I use all the time. Ditto with my closet. I want fabulous pieces, but I don’t want a closet full of things I only wear a small percentage of the time. This line of thinking has kept my finances in better order. I still have some financial goals I want to achieve but at least I’m not standing in my own way by shopping out of control.
