So TREAT YO SELF 2013 Happened Yesterday



TREAT YO SELF 2013 (it’s the best day of the year!) happened yesterday and it was amazing and incredible and glorious. If you don’t know what Treat Yo Self is you’re missing out. An explanation can be found here. I didn’t do anything on my original list (those will come with time) but today was incredible nonetheless. A list of the things that were accomplished are below.

  • Runyon Canyon? TREAT YO SELF
  • Panera for lunch? TREAT YO SELF
  • Forever 21? TREAT YO SELF
  • Anthropologie? TREAT YO SELF

Topshop was everything I dreamed of and more. Here’s the back story. I’ve wanted to go to a Topshop for almost 3 years now but there are less than a handful of them in the US (it’s a UK based company). I almost went when I was in New York about a year and a half ago but it didn’t work out. So on my bucket list it remained.


For the first few minutes I was in the store I swear I was short of breath because everything I looked at actually took my breath away. It was just so beautiful. So many dresses and purses and jackets and shoes. I wanted to pull a Pretty Woman and throw down a credit card that wasn’t mine but would automatically buy me whatever I wanted. Sadly I’m not at that point in my life right now so that didn’t happen but I did get a few little things in honor of TREAT YO SELF and this is the bag they put them in. THERE IS A CAT ON THE BAG. A CAT. AN ACTUAL CAT’S FACE. Fate couldn’t be speaking to me in a louder voice if it tried.

Also Harry Styles sent me flowers today. You know because he loves me and he’s my fiance Valentine. Thanks Haz, love you so much. (It’s casual.)

Treat Yo Self 2013


I’ve been watching Parks & Rec over the past week or so and I’m finally on season 4. In Season 4, episode 4 we are introduced to the Treat Yo Self mentality. The one day a year when you treat yo self to anything you want. Clothes? Treat yo self. Fragrances? Treat yo self. Mimosas? Treat yo self. Spa? TREAT YO SELF.

After watching that episode and how happy Treat Yo Self made everyone, I decided to compile a Treat Yo Self 2013 list that I would like to accomplish by the end of this year. Some are small, others are not, but they all would render the appropriate title of TREAT YO SELF.

  • Booze Cruise?……TREAT YO SELF
  • Coachella?……TREAT YO SELF(-ELLA)
  • Shania in Vegas?……TREAT YO SELF
  • Mani-pedi?……TREAT YO SELF
  • Massage at the Beverly Hilton?……TREAT YO SELF
  • Yogurtland?……TREAT YO SELF
  • Frye boots?……TREAT YO SELF
  • Candles from Anthropologie?……TREAT YO SELF
  • Turning the AC on when it’s 95 degrees out?……TREAT YO SELF
  • New socks?……TREAT YO SELF
  • Haircut?……TREAT YO SELF
  • Endless free samples from Costco?……TREAT YO SELF
  • Ditching work to hit the beach?……TREAT YO SELF

If anyone has any other Treat Yo Self ideas let me hear ’em. Or if you want to join me on any of my Treat Yo Self adventures that’s fine too. As long as you sing the Treat Yo Self song with me.
