8 Signs You Might Be a Product Junkie

*edit: We have a new home!

Hello my name is Vonnie and I am a product junkie *hello Vonnie!*.  There, I said it!  Nothing gets me more excited than dipping my fingers into a new product, caressing a new makeup compact, sniffing a yummy new lotion, puckering up for a new lipstick, or fluffing my hair with a new moisturizer.  Do you get that same rush, that same thrill of the purchase?  Shopaholic, product junkie, clotheshound, whatever you want to call it, have you been felled by the shopping bug?  Let’s find out:

8 Signs That You Might Be a Product Junkie

1. The employees at the mall know you by name, know your life story, know your favorite choices/brands, and are bringing out things they know you’ll like before you fully walk into the door.  Don’t go there for more than a week and suddenly they are asking, “Omg is everything okay?  Where have you been?  We were worried!”

2. You find yourself online shopping because you’ve received one of your bajillion email sales ads and end up buying $100 worth of stuff just so that you can get the free mini lip gloss or mascara with purchase or for the free shipping, even though you “planned to buy nothing, just going to look”.

3. You have more than 4 store specific credit cards (like a Victoria’s Secret Angel card) and all maintain a balance.  You’re a part of all your favorite stores VIP buyers clubs and somehow (SOMEHOW) always have a “You’ve spent $250 and so you get a $10 gift card” waiting for you in the mail every other month.

4. Whenever you are bored, you somehow find yourself on the website with items magically in your cart.  But you aren’t going to buy anything, they are just in your cart….just in case….just to remind you later….why does it say shipping confirmation?

5. You’ve ever not eaten, haven’t gone out, or otherwise put your life on hold so that you could save for a beauty or fashion product.  Or you’ve carelessly swiped your credit card without caring where the pay for the item would be coming from, you just NEED that new item in your life.

6. Every single time that you walk into the mall or a drugstore you leave with something beauty related.  Nail polish, mascara, hair product, you simply CAN’T walk into a store that sells any type of beauty product without purchasing something.  It’s a compulsion.

7. You have to hide new purchases from the ones that you live with.  Receipts? Burned in the fireplace, no evidence.  Hey, if there’s no proof of it happening, it didn’t happen right??  Right?? *tucks new conditioner into overflowing tray of other conditioners, hidden from view*

8. Shopping is your high.  It feels better than kissing, drinking (well, maybe not better than Sangria.  Seriously, who DOESN’T like sangria?), eating, partying, the warm cuddle of a cute puppy, better than everything!  Who needs drugs when you can get that russssh.

How did you measure up?  Are you a product junkie?  What other tell-tale signs of junkism can you think of?  See my favorite products

Friend Friday

[tweetmeme source=”socialitedreams” only_single=false]

Modly Chic has come up with the great idea of having “Friend Friday” so that any bloggers who want to participate can join in discussions with each other and answer the same questions to connect with one another and interact while sharing views on sometimes light sometimes heavy topics such as blogger jealousy, nails, blogger privacy.  This is my first time participating but it will be a weekly blog activity.  The topic this week: Fall Fashions (readers, please answer the questions in the comment section, I’d love to see what your responses are!)

1. What new fashion trend are you looking forward to sporting this fall?

I’m seeing LOTS of fur and want to do that trend very much so.  I’ve always had a love affair for fur, faux or not, and I need to add some to my closet this upcoming season FINALLY.  To do that, the jacket that I talked about previously must become mine!  It’s perfect for me!

Vila Faux Fur Coat $101.10

2. Which item in your closet is most likely to be your go-to transition piece?

Jeggings, definitely!  They are snug, cute, and able to go from summer to fall with ease.  Just throw a sweater dress or warmer type tunic with a belt over it, voila, fall!

3. What item from last year are you looking forward to reinventing this fall?
Hmm, good question….there isn’t a specific item that I’m looking forward to pulling out and making it work this season. I want to look forward to new stuff, lol. Hope to lose 20 more pounds and that will require new clothes!

4. What is your favorite part about this time of the year?

The fact that it’s still warm, but not HOT…cooler but not COLD and no snow.  Can wear boots, sweaters, cool jackets.  Oh I love it all!  The changing leaves with all of their glorious colors are definitely my FAVORITE part of Fall.

5. Will you be attending any fashion events this fall?

Hmm, not that I know of yet.  BUT just realized that I will be in New York during the exact time of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week soooooo Laura of So Far, So Chic and I need to figure out some shows to go to!

So what say you??  What are some fall trends that you are looking forward to?  Any item in your closet already that you can’t wait to remix?
