Treat Yo Self Tuesday

It's that day we all know and love--TREAT YO SELF DAY!

Did you know that this month is officially "No Spendtember?"

Well, I did. I just forgot the rules.

I designated this month as "No Spendtember" because I thought it was a very sensible, grown up thing to do. Yes, I will be making a trip to the J. Crew warehouse in October, but for now I can cut back and bulk up my savings account!

But then, this dress happened:
Date Night at Dusk dress from Modcloth

I ordered the dress after Matt and I both had consumed two margaritas each, and it seemed like a great idea. I rationalized the No Spendtember expense because I "needed" it for a fall wedding. Also, it's perf for the holiday season as well!

So I had my one, little, patron-induced slip-up, and then I would cut myself off the rest of the month! But, then I joined in on the Lettered Letters project, and decided I needed some cute stationery, so this happened:

Notebook // Confetti Note set from Sugar Paper
In conclusion, I am promising to follow the rules of No Spendtember from now on. However, if something pops up that just screams "TREAT YO SELF," all rules go out the window.

And that, my friends, is our philosophy here at Treat Yo Self Tuesday.

Much love,



  1. Treat Yo Self! I just watched that episode again and it has aged so very well. I'm pretty much in the Donna Camp: "I like this crystal beetle but it's expensive and I have no use for it--Treat Yo Self!" So good. Good luck for the rest of No Spendtember! Stopping by from Friends Around the World :)
