I’ve Found My Kryptonite, Guys

Ok guys.

I am not an impulse buyer at all. Like, so much so that I window shop, agonize over the price of something big or small, look at it for a few days, go back and forth, back and forth about whether not I should buy it, try not to think about it for a week, but really think about it for a week, am like “OK I’m gonna do it I’ma buy this stuff” then all through check out am like AHHH AHHH I’m doing it I’m buying it dear Lord what am I doing AHHH and then it only winds up being 20 dollars and I’m like why am I freaking out so much about purchasing this I have issues.


Etzy is a sneaky sneaky emailer with a sneaky sneaky way of getting me to impulse buy – because they show me things that I looked at before only on other shops and they are so irresistible that I just have to buuuy T_T

What is my kryptonite, you ask? Fantasy things. Specifically, mermaids. I have been looking all over for some good mermaid charms, and I usually only look at jewelry things on Etzy. So this morning, they sent me an email recommending things I might like, one of them being these charms from this shop and they were such a bargain that I got them like, without any of the agonizing stupidity I outlined above.

But that’s not all! I was browsing the rest of the shop, and ran across my many other loves: Fairies, the moon, sea creatures, shells, and so many other things that if I listed them right here this post would be sooooo long. So of course, I tacked on some fairies and moon charms to my order and I regret nothing.

Definitely going to keep on buying from this store: the prices are such a good bargain, and all the reviews say they are great quality. Besides, some things you just don’t want to have to figure out how to make yourself, and for me (and probably a lot of other people) adorable charms are one of these things. Can’t wait to get these, and tinker with them while designing! I’m getting more into mixed media stuff, and am really interested to see how these will pair with some silk or cotton cording. And besides, tomorrow is my birthday, so I figured I might as well treat myself to some goodies to play with because I won’t be ordering jewelry supplies for a while.

Have you ever found something you just had to buy, right then, right there? I would love to hear your stories!
