i decided it’s okay to pamper myself

So, one of my biggest resolutions for 2014 has been to take some more time to focus on me.
Even just saying that feel selfish to me, but here’s the thing…
I usually put all others before myself, and I don’t complain or question it because it feels right.
However, Ryan taught me through dating and loving me that it’s one of the root causes of my stress.
I care too much what people think, or if I’m letting them down.

I promised him that this year I was going to focus more on me,
and yes, I’m going to be a little more selfish this year.
And you know what?
I decided to do something a little selfish last night.
I signed up for Birchbox.

I usually hesitate to sign up for subscription things like this,
but I figured that for $10 a month, I can eat that cost and spoil myself a little this year.
Plus, I want to put a little more time and energy into a proper beauty routine this year because I’m usually pretty lazy about it.
How lazy, you ask?
Well, I pretty much always do my makeup in the car.

So, the point is, I caved, and I’m actually pretty psyched that I did.
There’s a two week wait list right now, but I’m looking forward to getting some goodies in the mail.
And yes, I’m going to pamper myself with them.

Do any of you have Birchbox, or have you signed up for something similar?
I’d love to hear what you think!
