Sometimes you've gotta splurge..
Am I on a severe budget? Yes. But a friend of mine once pointed out that goals and determination only go so far if you're not happy along the way. This is something fairly materialistic, but something I've wanted for a couple of years : a new duvet. I've had a white and gray duvet with this weird blotchy design from EQ3 for almost four years - yuck. The white isn't so white, the design was never really "me" and I've been looking for a long time for a replacement. FINALLY, looking at the Crate+Barrel outlet I found this gem - ironically later realized it's the same one Nicole of Making it Lovely just purchased for her home! I'm so excited about this new splash of color in my boring, empty bedroom.
