I Really Shouldn’t

I really shouldn’t…

Buy these dishes from Anthropologie

But how cute are they?

 

Spend time on the B & H Photo website or any photography or camera gear website

I could drop thousands on photography stuff from lenses to camera bodies in no time flat.  The Tsunami in Japan has effected the worldwide supply of many lenses and camera bodies with very indefinite ETA’s for them being re-stocked.   That just feeds my buying desires.

 

I really shouldn’t eat too many of these Caramelized Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Chickpea “Peanuts”

They are so good.  But beans + my stomach = a very low threshold of compatibility.  But they taste so good going down!

 

Go into Victoria’s Secret right now.

Their semi annual sale just started and buying lingerie and comfy clothes that I didn’t even know I needed, sounds fun.  You know that feeling of just because it’s “on sale”, all of a sudden I feel this urge that I “need it”.  You all know that feeling.  The outlet mall shopping phenomenon: You never wanted it til you saw it and it was marked down. From bras to roasting pans, anything marked down just makes me happy.

I really shouldn’t make cream cheese frosting just to eat.


But I might.

Adding a brownie along with a bowl of frosting is entirely optional.


From my last post with the Caramelized Ginger & Olive Oil Roasted Beets, I am glad you liked the recipe and that maybe you’re feeling inspired to try beets now.  Yes, you really should.

And I enjoyed hearing how the beet lovers enjoy eating beets.

    Yes, the tsunami is having a serious impact on getting camera gear in stock! Nikon is not in good shape and I’m lucky I could get my new camera when I did :X Not good for the shop, either. Big bummer. (…which sounds selfish, because us not being able to stock Nikon is minor compared to what residents over there are going through.)
    sales…yep. i have to remind myself that I don’t need something JUST because it’s on sale or JUST because i have a coupon!

    I know what you mean about beans + tummy = incompatible. Man, do I KNOW! They’re just so yummy, though. :)

    I really shouldn’t… look at the animal shelter web site for available pets for adoption, real estate sites, or go to the grocery store hungry. But I do all of the above anyway.

    Having worked for Bath & Body Works (which is owned by the Limited Brand), I got employee discount at Express and Victoria Secret. All 3 stores were next to each other so come semi-annual sale, I got first dibs… It was dangerous. I really didn’t “need” any of it, but where’s the fun in buying things you “need” all the time? Like my justification? hehe .. It helps me sleep at night
    P.S. freaking adorable plates! you SHOULD definitely buy them :)

    I love Anthropologie. It’s such an addictive place to shop at…oh my!

    I really shouldn’t make so much dessert…because we have too much food in the house already…but I did anyway…and I will probably make more tomorrow. :)

    I really shouldn’t go to Starbucks for my caffeine fix every morning, but I probably will go anyways… if just for the steamed soy toppers. ;)

    Those dishes are so pretty! I know for a fact that you’ve gotten dishes for dirt cheap at thrift stores, so a splurge now and then is totally acceptable. I think it’s all a little give and take – if we never bought or did something we maybe “shouldn’t”, we’d be denying ourselves of things we truly love and enjoy that make us happy, and a lot of amazing experiences with some of our best, treasured memories. :)

    I really shouldn’t have eaten all those gf cupcakes yesterday, but I did (they did have zucchini in them). Now I am thinking I shouldn’t go to VS or Anthropologie. I probably won’t but I really want to. If I had the time today I probably would go to VS. Since I just threw a bra away I could make that a “should” right?

    i really shouldn’t spray tan, because i think it’s equally unhealthy for my inner body, but i do anyway because i’ve been thoroughly scared of being in the sun without 70+SPF and i still like to have some color on my skin–albeit a slight orange hue (even though they say it looks natural)

    ps i’d buy those plates too, but i know how expensive they are…your $1 find pink bowl and plates are equally gorgeous! i am a big thrift store person…

    For me – I really shouldn’t be browsing vegan shoes on DSW and Zappos, but I could use a new pair for work and damn, those wedges would be fun on weekends. :-)
