I’m thrifty. I admit it. There’s no shame in being frugal. Yet, I will spend money on items I believe are important. Knowing the difference, between what is important to me and what isn’t is key.
Below I’ve noted the top 5 items I believe every woman should splurge on. These five splurges will not only make your outer beauty shine, they will soothe your your soul. I can’t be 100% certain – because really who ever is? – but I think these five splurges will not only make you glow, they will also propel your career, help you find a mate and give you countless zen moments!
A great cut is a must. Its one of the first things others notice ! In fact, Steven Ward, the host of VH1’s “Tough Love” and CEO of Master Matchmakers, says one of the first things a man notices on a woman is her hair, which may surprise many women.

A woman’s handbag speaks volumes. Whether it’s large or small, depends on you and your needs; however, it should be durable and of high quality. I suggest having at least one great bag, three preferably in black, gray, blue or the newest hue orange.
I am a shoe addict, I admit it. I gobble them up! Yet, I have one rule that applies to all my shoes. They must fit comfortably. This may mean that I will spend more money than expected on a pair of shoes; however, the expense is offset by the number of times I will use that pair of shoes. Ill fitting shoes can also cause back problems, foot problems and cause wrinkles; thereby, draining your hard earned money on a amassage therapist, podiatrist and botox. Splurge now to save later.
This one runs contrary to every frugal article you have may have read, but Ladies a professional manicure and pedicure is a necessity (plus most nail salons throw in a free massage!). Unkempt nails can hamper you, as a result invest, invest, invest.
It doesn’t matter whether there is construction going on, your cubicle mate is arguing with her boyfriend, the dogs are barking, the kids are arguing, or the next door neighbor is blasting their funky music, all I hear is silence… golden silence with my Bose QuietComfort® 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones. Love, love, LOVE them! I can not recommend this last one enough. They have saved my sanity and allowed me to have zen moments in the daily chaos. I admit they are pricey, but so well worth the expense.
