Everyone Needs A Splurge Now and Then

This week Taylor has another fun topic for Top Two Tuesdays. She wants to know the top two things we splurge on.
1. For me I would have to say Coach purses. I love them and I have six right now. These purses below are ones I actually have and the ones I wear ALL THE TIME (if you look close in some of my pictures you can see them- lol):

I love them! They definitely can be expensive but I usually buy mine at the Outlet store or use a coupon at the regular store. They are still a splurge, but it is literally something I use everyday.
2. The Melting Pot is both a splurge with calories and cash! I LOVE the cheese and chocolate and every once in I will strongly hint to Dave that I want to go ( :
Head on over to The Undomestic Momma to link up and check out everyone's picks for their splurges!

I also wanted to share this little list of lies we tell ourselves to justify some of the purchases we "must" have from The Frisky: (I especially have trouble with the first two)

1.The Lie: I’ll wear this so often that if I divide the total price by the number of times I wear it, it will basically cost me nothing.
The Truth: It still costs a butt load of money.
2.The Lie: I’ll have this forever.
The Truth: You can hold onto something for a lifetime, but after a few years of wearing it, the fabric will be worn and BO will have found a permanent home in the pits. Either that, or the dry-cleaner will lose it.
3.The Lie: I’ll never find anything else like it.
The Truth: Unless it’s vintage or couture, you can probably get something similar at a retailer up the block.
4.The Lie: I’ll fit into it eventually.
The Truth: If you can’t close the zipper now, you’ll probably never be able to. Sorry.
5.The Lie:I can afford it.
The Truth: You can afford it if you put it on your credit card


  1. Haha love the excuses! And cute bags!

  2. LOVE your picks! Melting Pot is my fav!

  3. I've never been to the Melting Pot, but I'm dying to try it out! You just gave me a great idea for mother's day....Thanks!!

  4. Love the excuses! I've never been to the melting Pot but I will have to try it out sometime! :-)

  5. I hear the Melting Pot is super romantic. I might have to drop a few hints of my own!

  6. Oooh, I love the Melting Pot! So, so good! Also, totally worth both splurges :)
