I've had a fairly shit couple of months... and i've got a decent bonus coming from work this month- I want to spoil myself a little bit. After I've paid of the debt accumulated in the aforementioned 'shit couple of months' and put away some £ for christmas, I'll have a minimum of £300 left (I won't find out exactly how much until next week). So, what should I do with it for maximum enjoyment?

I need clothes, but I'm trying to lose weight so don't want to be spending too much at my current size.

I'd like a new desk for working at home but that feels like a 'house' purchase, ditto the new curtains needed so I can switch DDs bedroom with the spare room.

Or perhaps I should be sensible and whack it all in savings...

What would you do with it?

How's your shoe situation? You could get gorgeous boots.

And a plush wool scarf. Something you'll enjoy for winter.

Buy yourself a pandora with a couple of charms. You can add to it as you go and buy yourself a charm for every stone you lose.
I know they're not everyone's bag but I love mine DH always has something to buy me instead of me getting my own Xmas/birthday present

I would get a fabulous pair of boots or splash out on some nice make up or perfume.

Oooh boots are a good idea, my old winter ones have a wee hole in them. i already have far too many scarves! easy to buy when you're a bit chubby I had posted recently about some clothes/coat I fancied but just seems a waste if i really am going to lose weight.

Yep do boots. What sort do you like?

I'd like very long (ideally over the knee) black flat-ish ones, I had suede last time so maybe patent?

The 5050 is much loved.

Here at Nordstrom but think you can get them at Russell & Bromley too.

Not patent, but might be glossy enough. Definitely nice enough to feel it is a I deserve it buy.

Oooh they are lovely! Definitely on the list smile

Give yourself one hundred quid and go to one or more branches of TK Maxx and see what you can get for yourself in there. Maybe up the budget to £150.

I reckon you could comfortably get yourself:

A pair of boots
A nice scarf
A bottle of perfume or other smellies
And a bag.

TK Maxx are online and I think if you spend a certain amount then you get free delivery.

I think you may also (and within budget) get yourself a pair of jeans.

The rest you could save/spend on house stuff (also look at TK Maxx)
