Lust List

Ever since I started working nearly a year ago, I’ve always kept a running “lust list” of things I want to buy eventually, but can’t go out and buy myself all at once when I receive my paycheck. Everything on my lust list is simply that—things I am lusting after, but don’t really need. I love handwriting lists, so anytime I come across something I want, but need to save up for, I write it down. When I feel like treating myself, I refer back to the list so that I know I’m not just spending on impulse, but instead buying something I actually want.

These are the things I am currently lusting after—and I definitely might have to treat myself to an early Christmas in July with all the Memorial Day Weekend sales. Be sure to check out J Crew Factory’s 50% off and the Kate Spade flash sale with up to 75% off!

  1. Love all these items, I might just have to copy you and all of these to my wish list as well! I do the exact same thing, I try to keep a running of list of what I am loving. And then I try to avoid any sporadic shopping and save up a bit more for a piece I am really dying to have.

    I have that Mimosa Dipyque candle in the mini version, I love it! The scent is fabulous, and even though it may seem small I have had the candle for more than a year now and it is still going strong!
