Every time I go shopping for Something for myself I invariably end up with Nothing for myself but Something for my family.
In the current climate, treating yourself for no good reason (no birthday, anniversary or lotto win) seems like a ludicrous luxury.
But according to recent research from the US (where else), if you never treat yourself, you always feel like you’re ‘missing out on life’s pleasures’.
|In other words, never spoiling yourself can be bad for your health. Sounds like a license to shop for the woman of the house to me. Debenhams have a lovely range of beauty offers right now – I’ve got my eye on a Bamboo Pinks Make-up Set by Clinique ( £37.19) – order through KidStart and you even get money back, which you can use to spoil your kids.||
