1 p.m. — There are eight tabs at present open on my laptop computer, a number of of that are for work, others for issues I want to purchase: some new garments, so many bedding web sites, and jewellery. I’ve been eyeing a chunk of “grown-up” jewellery for some time as a pleasant annual deal with to myself for the expansion and progress of my profession this 12 months. I’m developing on the tail finish of a few huge, long-lead tasks (which implies long-lead paychecks) that I’m fairly pleased with. For each huge profession milestone, I prefer to reward myself with one thing my youthful self by no means might’ve imagined affording. One 12 months, it was designer boots, then a shearling winter coat, after which the Japanese ceramic dinnerware I’ve at all times wished. Now, I’m on the hunt for a chunk of knickknack that’s classically fancy in a approach that isn’t an engagement ring — particularly, a tennis bracelet. It’s essentially the most elegant strategy to casually put on so many diamonds in a row, you already know? Shane Co. has a shocking 14k white gold tennis bracelet with lab-grown diamonds, a mode I do know I will put on eternally. I add to my cart and rapidly click on “buy” earlier than I alter my thoughts. It feels exhilarating to make a big buy that isn’t additionally a tax write-off for me.
