TIP NO. 35 – SHOPPING WHILE TRAVELLING
I have just come back from my trip to Switzerland, and of course shopping is part of what we do when we leave home. But it is not the same as shopping at home. First I noticed that my attitude to money is quite different – different in the way I look at prices. After a few days when I have gotten used to the currency, and don’t calculate anymore how much something is in dollars, I pay 100 Swiss Francs for a pair of shoes without thinking that it is expensive – where here at home I would think twice about paying that much.
Well, it is part of our holiday mood – we think that we deserve these treats when we are on vacation, and we do! But be careful not to get carried away by your surroundings, by spending the extra money for something you can not use once you are back home.
Don’t fall in love with an adorable summer dress only appropriate for the beach – but not useful when you are back in New York. Or have you ever come home with a huge straw hat? Now only a reminder of that wonderful stay in the Bahamas! By all means go shopping, have fun, but buy something that will remind you of your vacation while wearing it back home.
Oh, yes the shoes I bought are something I will wear all summer – they are beige snake-skin, with a medium size heel, and very comfortable. But I had a moment of hesitation. There was also a pair of sexy, red ones with very high heels, and my holiday mood was more for sexy and daring —- but then I took my own advice and bought what will be useful this spring and summer.
See you tomorrow
Today I want to share with you my latest discovery on how to improve your look. Seeing its benefits I can say without hesitation that it must be one of the best beauty products I have found. It makes me look relaxed and happy, and it gives me a feeling of luxury. And if that is not enough, it takes extra good care of my hands. Broken fingernails are something of the past and so is dry skin or shipped nail polish.
By now you must be wondering what this miracle product is, and how much it costs? Well, it isn’t a bargain, but how can it be considering all the wonderful things it can do. I admit that without it I would save $120 a months, and for that money I could buy a new blouse or sweater. I did consider it, but then I came to the conclusion that a new blouse or sweater could do nothing for me when I look exhausted.
Sorry for getting carried away and keeping you in suspense, but I feel like a different person since I found Tania ——– She is a dark-haired girl, 5’6 inches tall with a lovely disposition and strong arms to take care of my apartment. She comes twice a month, and I pay her $60 per visit.
Before finding Tania I was a person who wanted to do everything herself. But now having her help, I rather go without a new dress than not having Tania in my life. When I feel overwhelmed by having to take care of my apartment, I think of next Wednesday when she comes; and I relax and appreciate that I am not alone in a task that can overwhelm any woman who works and has a family.
If you worry about finding the right Tania – don’t! Just put out the word, with your neighbors, or other people who have a help. Soon some nice person will come and offer her services. If she is not to your satisfaction, you will find somebody else. Since Tania started, three other women came and left me their card -‘ just in case’ they said.
Should you still be in doubt, let me reassure you that the shine of your sparkling house will be reflected on your face.
Until the next time
STAY WELL AND LOOK YOUR BEST
