Confessions of a shopaholic

I finally got around to seeing this movie that I swear was written in the essence of my college years. Was anyone else inspired like the trailer asks? I sure was. But unfortunately, I cannot afford the tastes I acquired in college.

My favorite part was that she wears different colored gloves throughout the movie. It inspired me to pull out my green Coach gloves I got over the Christmas holidays. I don't like to wear them often because they are leather and I am a smoker but seeing as we just had a blizzard and the wind chill is making it feel like 2 degrees, I figured I should pull them out while I still can.

I really fell in love with her quote about why she shops. I can't find it anywhere but to sum it up, while shopping, the world is a better place for her even if it is just for those moments. That's exactly how I feel when I go shopping and I think I might be a borderline aholic (I'd probably be a full blown holic if I didn't have the conscience to live beyond my means and the not so appealing option of living at home with my siblings).

And speaking of shopping, Macy's has been calling my name for the past 3 days. I want (NEED!) some Hello Kitty M.A.C. make-up and a Marc Jacobs wallet. The weather has been deterring me from answering the call 10 blocks away, but I will get there sooner or later.

PS- the movie was cute, but if you read the book, it's a little disappointing.

I feel the same way when I shop. No matter what I shop for, it makes me happy, calms me down, etc.

I got some Hello Kitty gloss from MAC. cute.

That's not your name Macys is calling.

It's mine.

"You know that thing when you see someone cute and he smiles and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast? Well that's what it's like when I see a store. Only it's better."

The gloves were my favorite part too! I really loved the movie and am going to read the book soon.
