It’s been sometime since I last bought something for myself. The last purchase I made was a Fossil watch sold by a colleague in December 2008 which served as a birthday and Christmas gift for myself. When I quit my job to focus on my business, my spending habits has changed. I stopped buying myself stuff for practical reasons, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting things. Last month I received a gift from a local brand — a reward for blogging on time. It was a nice watch that rekindled my romance with watches.
I have a small collection with each one having a story behind them. Some I still wear, while others gave up on me because I forgot to replace the batteries. This Christmas I have no intentions of buying stuff of such kind for myself — not that I don’t want them. I just don’t feel the urge of spending.
Unfortunately, surfing the web can’t keep me from seeing cool stuff. I’m tempted to window shop as I hop from one online shop to another in search for inspirations for my own online store. One website I came across was Reebonz. It’s one of the few online shop with international presence but with a local office in the country.
