There used to be a feature in a magazine I read called "What would you do with an extra $100?" and whomever submitted the best answer actually won the $100. I can't remember what magazine, though... I think it was in Real Simple... or perhaps it still runs in a magazine I no longer read... Does anyone else remember this?
Anyway. I was thinking about what I would do with an extra $100. The easy answer is that I'd finally buy that pair of Lululemon Astro Pants. I swear, I'm in that store several times a month but cannot bring myself to buy anything longer than the Biker Groove Short. I tend to exercise in as little clothing as possible, but I keep thinking I might like a pair of the longer pants for yoga in the winter. Right now, I wear Yogabela crops (which I LOVE).
However, if I were going to be a bit more creative, I'd use an extra $100 to buy a bunch of little fun things.
Candles always seem expensive to me - maybe because I have to buy them so often. I burn a candle in my apartment pretty much every day. Lately I've been switching between Yankee Candle Farmer's Market and Yankee Candle Maple Pancakes. I smelled this Illume Boulangerie Jar in Sweet Vanilla Cinnamon at Anthropologie and fell in love, but I'm trying to wait until I reeeally need it. $16.
I couldn't not purchase a Soul Cycle series with an extra $100. These classes are pretty pricey but SO amazing and I wish I were able to go more than a few times a month. It is far and away the most rewarding workout I get all week. $32 + $3 for shoe rental.
I live in these Victoria's Secret One Size Sexy Shorts at home and would love another pair. Beyond comfortable. Perfect for lounging and sleeping. $20.
I am in desperate need of a cute new notepad... I threw all mine away when I moved and as a result have nothing to jot down reminders on. I love this 'Get It Done' Notepad from Rifle Paper Co. How darling is that zebra? Bonus: the company is based out of Winter Park, FL... My old stomping grounds. $8.
I take snacks everywhere I go, and it sure would be nice to have something cute to store 'em in. I have granola bars and fruit snacks floating around in the bottom of every handbag I own. I'm loving this Lilly Pulitzer Reusable Sandwich and Snack Sack. The bright colors would make my treats easy to spot. $9.95.
...and with the rest of the money, I'd treat my mom, my dad and myself to Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
I want to know... what would you do with an extra $100?
