    @happilyeveraftergirl:  Me too!! I love shopping for my home! I’ve enjoyed it more than shopping for myself. I’ve become a regular in the home section of TJ Maxx lately. 

    However, I read the question wrong and voted other. I thought it said “new” so the newest thing I love to buy for myself are scarves. Not the ones you wear with coats; the ones you’d wear with your outfit.

    Food. Grocery shopping is one of my favorite times.

    Gift for other people and clothes all of the way. Sweaters specifically haha. Shoe shopping causes me anxiety because I only do it if I need a specific pair and then I can never seem to find the right ones! I also despise grocery shopping – I am horrible about getting random crap/not sticking to the list and I can never seem to find anything because the store we go to moves stuff all.the.time GAH so frsutratiing, and its not “fun” stuff usually its necessity items so BORING.

    Home wares lol! I have made a list of everything Fiance and I will need for our own place once we move out of home, and have been slowly gathering everything I can! Except for large items such as appliances, bed, etc. 

    I also love buying gifts for other people, it is so exciting buying something you know they will love and seeing their face when they open it! I swear I am more excited about giving them the gift than they are receiving it!

    Lately I have been going on a wardrobe spree – lots of my clothes were in the wrong size, and I wanted a new wardrobe for going back to university after such a long time. I hate the small stores where the salespeople keep bothering you, and I get really upset trying on clothes half the time, so been buying a few things on eBay! No trying on required πŸ™‚

    ETA: I can’t believe I forgot the biggest one – books! I seriously have 14 books waiting for me to read. And not to mention the couple hundred I have in my shelves that I have already read.

    @happilyeveraftergirl:  Hahaha, we actually added shelves for my cookbooks, a baker’s shelf (found from Re-Store for $100) and a kitchen nook, where you could hide extra kitchen stuff underneath the benches! Remodelling the kitchen would be too big of a project for an old house that was built in 1955.

    My favourite score from Boxing Week was definitely a cast-iron dutch oven. I can now bake artisan breads at 500F; deep-fry anything with very little mess and do a lot of cooking/baking with it. On my wish list though is the Flavour Bible. It’s a really great book for coming up with your own baking recipes.

    This is the oak nook I’m talking about; from Konto:

    @happilyeveraftergirl:  Aww you’re adorable πŸ™‚

    I voted shoes and other, for art. I love pretty things!

    At present,  I really love browsing thrift stores and finding treasures, things that are wonderful and/or are something specific that I want/need, for a good price! We have a painting of a ship in an ornately carved wooden frame that we got for $20, it looks like it could be a portal to Narnia. And yesterday I needed a pair of lace up boots to keep bugs away from my ankles on a trip, and I had a budget of $50, and I found a pair that was perfect, my size, not brand new but clearly durable, Aldo, for $6!

    Asc far as shoes go, my realization that I practically never wear heels has mostly gotten me over buying them, pretty as they are, so it’s a love of anything flat and occasionally wedges.

    Oh, and another thing, I also love a great new cross body bag… Hands free baby, perfect for my forgetful self! 

    Really I think my tastes just evolve  a lot. Like I went through a serious hoodie phase, and hair flower phase. πŸ˜›

    Food, because aside from grocery shopping I hate shopping and find it such a chore.  I wish I had a personal assistant who could pick out my outfits and purchase them all for me.
