I’m a strong believer that any woman named Tiffany should own a piece of jewelry from Tiffany’s. For as long as I can remember knowing a jewelry store bearing my name existed I have wanted to get something. But I also grew up very poor. As I result I remain extremely thrifty. I beat myself up about almost all of my purchases because I think about how I should put that money in to savings and/or retirement. So I had settled on the dream of some day getting a Tiffany engagement ring from my Mr. Right. But last December I decided to splurge. On December 30th I decided to spend New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas and on a whim booked a flight on Priceline. Every time I had gone to Las Vegas in the past I would stop by the Tiffany store and fantasize about the beautiful jewelry. But this trip I decided I was going to buy something. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry or makeup so I wanted something simple, classic, beautiful and can be worn everyday…a signature Tiffany sterling silver ring. I was so happy to walk out of the store with a cute Tiffany teal-colored bag. I did a mini photo shoot in honor of the occasion when I got back to my hotel room. I was proud of my purchase. It symbolized that I could afford to buy myself nicer things. And that some of the best things in life are worth waiting and saving for.
