Me: Mason and Pearson hairbrush; Wolford opaque tights (indestructable)and Bobbi Brown make-up brushes.
These are absolute essentials that I could never justify on my own.

I always feel wrong if I buy myself perfume. Don't know why, just think it should be bought for you.

Really would like a nice watch, but I'd feel selfish if I bought one for myself.

DH would possibly respond to heavy hinting but I may have to email him a selection on the runup to Christmas. How romantic.

kurt geigers, the perfect leather jacket, horribly expensive boots, big fat diamond studs, narciso rodriguez(sp?) perfume & musk oil

Agree with perfume. I treated myself to some for my birthday, and I felt really guilty!

Laser hair removal! It would change my life but I don't have a spare couple of grand. One day...!

Jo Malone stuff...perfume, body lotion, bath oil, shower gel. I always wait and ask for them for birthdays and Christmas.

The infamous waterproof/stylish coat for pushing buggy in the rain. I have identified (from here smile) the Helly Hansen as the one for me but can't bring myself to part with £180 for such a dull item...however nor will I buy a cheap horrible one I will hate, so I keep getting wet confused

Otoh I think spending as much as you can on things like ( for my taste, biker) boots, good (not insane) bag and a simple leather jacket is always a good idea, these things are used day after day, year after year. My leather jacket has been going for about 15!

In my case it is what do I need but cannot buy due to lack of finances:

Decent make up brushes
Decent eyeshadow palettes
Leather shoes that I actually like that are not on the sale rack
Tailored black trousers for work from shops such as Warehouse, Top Shop, Jigsaw- buy trousers from Newlook/Asda and they are so ill fitting I have to wear tunic tops with them.
Work and going out bags- last bought going out clutch bag 5 years ago and work bag three years ago.
Go to the hairdressers more often

I need some diamond stud earrings. I also desperately need to do my highlights (last time I was pg with DD3, now 2 1/2). Its not that I won't book an appointment I just can't afford it right now.

I need some knickers too, not a multi pack from sainsburys, and a bra that fits...

Husband wants me to buy some sexy dressing up lingerie and hold ups.
But come on I really couldn't justify buying that sort of stuff, I would feel terribly gulity, hehehe.
