i completely splurged today, and i hardly feel guilty at all for it.

i brought:
+ wasted, marya hornbacher (novel)
+ lolita, vladimir nabokov (novel)
+ prozac nation, elizabeth wurtzel (novel)
+ eli's wings, elizabeth best (novel)
+ mirrorball, sarah mclachlan (cd)
+ solace, sarah mclachlan (cd)
+ stars, the cranberries (cd)
+ raspberry lipbalm from the body shop
+ face skincare & intensive hand therapy & warming gloves from h20+
+ dance australia magazine
+ new earrings to replace the one i lost

... that might have been all, i think. all sorts of my favourite things. i don't know if retail therapy really works but hey, i was happy to give it a go ;)

off to russ's house for the night (again). i think i should move in there and save driving back & forwards. ha! i love staying with him. i always feel so safe to wake up and hear him breathing next to me. i'll go wherever you may go... i can't stand sleeping on my own anymore. it just isn't right.

*hugs* Be careful reading Prozac Nation darling... just from my experience it can be very very triggering and I try to avoid reading it when I'm feeling down. On one level it's a great book to read because Elizabeth describes depression SO well, you will totally be able to relate to it, but after I read it I always feel like curling up in bed and never getting out. I'm never loaning it to Sarah for that very reason.

All of that said, I DO think that those books are amazing and I'm sure you'll enjoy them, or at least find them interesting. Both Elizabeth and Marya are such amazing writers... in fact, I think that the ending of Wasted is absolutely marvellous and is so good to read... I'm sure you'll find it inspiring, I certainly did!

*hugs* Love you loads, and good on you for splurging! :D

I love shopping but I never feel guilty even if I've bought too many things I know I don't need...

Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita" is marvellous!! ♥

Wasted is like.. my favorite book of all time. Have you read it before?

Lolita is one of my favorite books of all time. It's absolutely beautiful.

Solace is a great album. Good to drive to, to dance to, to sleep to, to study to. Just good all-around.

retail therapy can brighten a day. i commend your purchases. no need to feel guilty about such wonderful things! <3

Oooooooo I bought Lolita a month ago too. I haven't gotton around to reading it yet though. I almost bought Prozac nation, but instead I bought a book on how to fight depression, I still want to read Prozac nation so tell me how it turns out. I sent your letter out today too :)
