Sometimes us ladies are guilty of not putting ourselves first.
Like when we happily buy our partner a $300 watch for his birthday but can’t bring ourselves to buy the $50 top we love.
Or when we splurge on our kids and buy them designer brands but won’t go and buy the new work clothes we REALLY need.
Why do we do that?
Well, I’m calling it. This has to stop.
We have to start putting ourselves first.
I made this decision and started to think how I could put myself first every now and then. How could I treat myself? I didn’t want to go overboard, but I thought a once a month treat would be perfect. Once a month, that’s doable, right? Yes, it IS doable. I told myself I was not allowed to be a negative Nancy and I had to insist on putting myself first. And neither are you!
Once a month is doable, realistic and not over the top.
We deserve a once a month treat.
So then I started to think. What could I do once a month that is a treat to myself but not crazy expensive, extravagant or time consuming? This was going to be tough…
I considered a massage…mmmm, $100+ is probably a bit much. What about nails? Again, about $70 and needs fortnightly refills. Not really worth it and I really don’t have the time.
Then, I found it.
Thanks to a tip from a glorious, glorious friend, I found bellabox, and Oh. My. God. It’s perfect.
A beauty box delivered to my door every month. P.E.R.F.E.C.T
Easy – tick
Cheap – tick
Useful – tick
Home delivered – tick.
It’s like all my dreams had come true at once.
I signed up instantly. And as soon as my first delivery had come I knew I had made the right decision.
Just FYI, this is an advertorial for bellabox.
If you really don’t believe me here’s more reasons to treat yourself to a bellabox.
1. It’s not a bill.
I don’t know about you, but bills are the only mail I get. Okay, maybe a birthday card from my Nan once a year and like three Christmas cards from relatives that aren’t on Facebook. But the bellabox is mail you will want to receive. Imagine my surprise when my first bellabox came on a Saturday – right before a night out. It could not have been more perfect.
2. Cheap, cheap, cheap.
No, I am not chirping like a baby bird, I am emphasising the affordability of the bellabox. $15 a month for a box full of beauty samples. Fifteen bucks! Cheaper than any other beauty treatment I know. Without a doubt.
