You've got £500. What do you treat yourself to?

Has to be you and only you. No saving it, no paying a bill. Purely a treat.

I think for me it's a Brora cashmere scarf and some See by Chloe boots.

One night in a hotel room, just me and lots of food.

I would pay for a new computer. My one is on its last legs.

MigGril Tue 22-Oct-19 18:21:23

Ok, a spar day. Then some much need massage for my migraines.

A Toast velvet dressing gown, but not this year’s because it’s yellow and that doesn’t suit me. Plus some cashmere socks. Poof! All gone! What a waste!

Oh yes, definitely a night or two away, just me. A few books, some decent wine, and everything I want from M&S foodhall. Failing that, and if I was looking for an ‘investment’ of sorts, a necklace from my favourite shop. I bought one at the beginning of last year when things were a bit shit and I’ve worn it every single day since.

Can I leave it until after my birth and then revamp my entire wardrobe?

Full board hotel break for a night somewhere nice
Good gin
Good chocolate
Books. And more books. And maybe some books.

A night away, a decent dinner and a theatre ticket.

New bedding, but posh 500 TC sheets and duvet covers not the cheap things we usually have.

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Tue 22-Oct-19 18:30:18

Lovely fabric to make costume for my reenactment hobby.

Ipl thingy to use at home. Apparently home use ones are pretty decent now and think of all the time and money savings on shaving or waxing.
And the remaining 200ish... new lingerie that actually fits since I've lost so much weight recently

captainprincess Tue 22-Oct-19 18:34:50

New cordless hoover or an iPad.

DontCallMeShitley Tue 22-Oct-19 18:34:53

Kurt Geiger boots and a pair of shoes.

Or a bag. It wouldn't get me the bag I would like though, unless I had a spare £1000 or so. Would make a change from second hand under £35.00 ones.

deposit on a new saddle <3

RushianDisney Tue 22-Oct-19 18:48:01

A rug I have my eye on, and another Anissa Kermiche vase. Or does it have to be on only one thing? If so, a night at Thyme hotel

Twisique Tue 22-Oct-19 18:52:41

Theater tickets and a beauty advent calendar.

UnalliterativeGeorge Tue 22-Oct-19 18:55:15

A new wedding ring because I'm allergic to mine.

GreigLaidlawsbarofsoap Tue 22-Oct-19 18:56:38

I'd buy tickets to shows/gigs/plays for next year to give me lots of exciting nights out to look forward to.

FlyingNorth Tue 22-Oct-19 18:59:16

spar day
To be fair you can get a LOT for your money in Spar grin

For me it would be a city break somewhere in Europe (nice hotel if just me, or DH could come along if we downgraded a bit).

TheoneandObi Tue 22-Oct-19 19:01:17

Nicely fitting bras from Rigby and Peller. I know it wouldn’t buy me many. But yeah. Nice bras and matching knickers. I’ve lost a couple of stone in weight and the first thing that went was two cup sizes grin

Next part of my sleeve tattoo

Cheshire oaks outlet village and a leisurely walk round with coffee whilst I picked a few things.
