Me Myself and I

Why don't you sit right down and stay awhile? 
We like the same things and I like your style 
Its not a secret; why do you keep it? 
I'm just sitting on the shelf 

I got to get your presence 
Let's make it known 
I think you're just so pleasant 
I would like you for my own 
-Why do you let me stay here, She+Him
Last night I took myself on date.
I dressed myself up, put on my lipstick, had a romantic dinner, got myself tipsy, and took myself back to my hotel room for a Jacuzzi.
I travel a lot on my own for work and this was the first time I felt comfortable going to a restaurant by myself for dinner.
 I didn't care that people were looking at me with sympathy like I had been stood up for a blind date, and I also happily ignored the group of 12 business men who kept sending beer to my table even though the restaurant was an 'all you can eat and drink' teppanyaki bar....nice gesture....jerks. 
I had an amazing time.
I even sneakily brought myself a gift (or a few)....
May I introduce you to my new Prada purse and Lucky heels.
"Prada?! " I hear you cry...which brings me to my all-time favourite quote:
'Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.'-Oscar Wilde
Imagination I have people. If nothing else.
Can I afford a Prada bag? Frig no. But there are certain things in life that you just figure out. I also happen to have some very great sneaky places in which you find such treasures at more than affordable prices.
"Where?" you ask.
"In your dreams love children!!!
