How To Do The Fashion Girl Equivalent of Treat Yo’Self Day
Our 13-step masterplan to making 13 October (a.k.a Treat Yo'self Day) your slave. It's the best day of the year!| October 13, 2016
Clothes. Fragrances. Massages. Mimosas. Fine leather goods. Treat yo’self! It is the best day of the year! Five years ago on this very day, Parks & Recreation started a movement that would become the voice of a generation. When Donna Meagle and Tom Haverford bought things that they didn’t need just because they could, it made everyone realise that we all deserved that one day to splurge, indulge and basically Marie Antoinette-it up. Thus, Treat Yo’self Day was born. Let them eat cake? Let yourself eat cake!
It is emotional release. It is stress therapy. It is a means of reward. Want that $100 overnight mask? Treat yo’self! Those Gucci fur loafers that everyone but you seems to have? Treat yo’self! The entire A Song of Ice and Fire box set? Treat yo’self! If you’ve been working hard all year and have been a good girl with your finances, this is your day.
So, do we hear those three magical words coming out of your mouth? If you want to treat yo’brain by not thinking about what to do, leave it to us. You don’t even need to get out of bed for half of the stuff on our 13-step list. Ah, the joys of the modern world. (Us? We’re skipping this year because we treated ourselves a little too much during fashion month in New York, Milan and Paris. Heh. At least we’re honest!)
