Treat Yourself….I Did With A Little Leopard!!

Wow, there have been a couple of heavy emotional posts for me over the last week! So, I am ready to have some fun! What better way to celebrate fun than with LEOPARD.

I write this advice often: Give yourself permission to receive a treat occasionally for something special…and I am not talking about chocolate. I work pretty hard…from rise at 4:30AM to bedtime around 9:30! And…it really helps me to keep on keeping on if I give myself an occasional treat. Back when my children were at home, I would spend every financial gift on them or on household needs. But now, I think an occasional Perk for Pam is perfectly fine.

When I was gifted with money recently, I decided to locate a pair of shoes tormenting my sleep for a long time….the really good news is that THE SHOES were ON SALE! I was impressed with young accessories designer, Elaine Turner, the minute I met her at the OPENING OF A HER NEW BOUTIQUE in Alamo Heights last fall.  Her shoes and purses are gorgeous! So, when I could purchase these $250 flats last week for $100….I went for it. I have to say I am in love!! When tempted to think about all of the other things I could do with that $100, I just put it out of my mind.

It does pay to sign up for emails from the retailers you love. Occasionally, you receive a sale notice not given to the general public. I see this happen with more than one. It can pay off big time. The offer I used from ELAINE TURNER also included free shipping on that day.

In honor of LEOPARD LOVE, I am also modeling my recent AMAZON purchase of this lightweight leopard infinity SCARF. I won a $25 gift card and instead of using it on my standard Amazon purchases of books and CDs, I made myself go out of my box. For the $25, I bought two beautiful scarves.  I love this leopard up against my pink TUNIC from Soft Surroundings!
Have you bought yourself a special treat lately…tell us what it is!! And if not, maybe it is time you do!!
Have a wonderful Thursday everyone…and make sure you stop by KATIE’S FAVORITE THINGS BLOG HOP!!



  1. LOVE the leopard scarf and shoes. That Soft Surroundings is gorgeous. I treated myself to a pair of Chico pants and animal print top from my favorite consignment store just yesterday.

  2. I do love your leopard flats! I have a very similar pair and have wore them out!
    Your pink and leopard looks really really great together!
    I'm glad you treated yourself! I hate to admit it, but I treat myself all the time! haha

  3. Love the shoes, scarf, and top. Just like the whole outfit. I'm so sorry to hear that your friend is moving. I know how hard that can be. Take care of yourself. Blessings Paula

  4. Oh, I LOVE leopard prints! And it looks like it's going to be very popular this year! I love the detail in your shoes! I actually also have a pair of flats and a scarf in the black and tan colors, too! A little special treat now and then is great…it can be just the pick-me-up you might need to spruce up your wardrobe!
