I've recently started meeting up with a friend of mine every weekend (that the boy isn't here/I'm not in Melbourne) for what he terms 'Heiress Lunches' (which usually stretches on to Heiress Days). They pay homage to the Paris Hiltons of the world, as well as the days when neither of us had full time jobs and could go take leisurely lunches in or near the city, or by the beach or bay. We used to joke that one day we would ladies of leisure and be able to just spend our days shopping and taking long lunches while our men worked hard to maintain the lifestyle we were accustomed to.
These days we both work long & hard for our money (well, I work hard lol) and I would never dream of simply mooching money off a man, but when it comes to our weekly Heiress lunches I like to forget about all the hours I've had to work and pretend that money is not an issue (and this mentality is exactly why I will never allow myself to get a credit card lol). I've been pretty bad with my spending lately. On one of said Heiress Days, 'We'll just go have a look' in Chanel resulted in me taking home a rather pricey pair of sunnies that I didn't realise I'd needed but had to have. An RDO today resulted in a mani/pedi, waxing, and three pairs of shorts, three tops, a skirt, a playsuit, a dress, a pair of pants, a necklace, bracelet and bangle. A 'quick stop' at the shops after work last Thursday ended up in three pairs of shoes, three pairs of shorts, a pair of pants, two skirts, eight dresses, and twelve tops. And a phone cover. You could say things are getting a tiny bit out of hand. But fuck it. I'm young, with no responsibilities. I'm never going to be in a position where I have this much disposable income ever again. I'm gonna god-damn enjoy it while I can.
