my addiction..

... i can't stop buying new socks.

i realize this might not qualify as an addiction, but it is. you know those gossip-stories that pop up every now and then about celebrities meant to show how frivolous they are about blowing money on every day things ("----- only wears underwear once then throws them away!" etc)?

well.. i've worn a new pair of socks every single day since probably november. everytime i finish off a fresh multi-pack, i magically find myself at a store to buy new socks to last me a few weeks. i now have a mountain of socks worn once that i should wash, but because i "never" run out of new socks, i keep putting it off.

it feels wonderfully decadent, even though i realize it's a waste of money. i just love new soooooocks! and there's this one store that has these cute packs of 4 socks that i have now probably bought 15 packs of. they're striped, or have stars, or cute colours like purple or orange, and they're the perfect thickness and feel and aaaargh. can't stop buying them. however, they are running out of "my" size and i doubt they'll be getting more of them once the supply runs out. sigh.

do you have a weird "every day luxury" you just can't help yourself from indulging in?

seriously, fresh socks! love it. hehehe. :D

Hahaha, maybe they're running out of your size because you keep buying every pair they have? :D :D :D

Socks are good though. I like socks.

hehehehe, yeah, i'm thinking i might be my own worst enemy in making the socks run out. today i reeeally had to dig to find three packs left in my size. once they're out, i might have to try the smaller socks and hope for the best. but they're so cuuuuuute! hehe.

hehe! different colours, or mostly similar eye-liners? :D my other addiction is... lipgloss. and lipbalms. i think i have approx. 10 different ones in my purse, at least. the thing is, i mainly adore really cheesy ones, such as coca-cola flavoured gloss, or sprite-flavoured, or fanta, or cute pink gloss.. hehe :D

Hmm. I have TONS of black ones, quite a few grey ones, and then a selection of blues, greens and purples.
I also have like, oh, hundred or so different shades of eyeshadow... :|
