February is well known as the month of love and one of the things that can make love, friendships or life sour is money. But it doesn't have to be so! Money used well can enrich friendships, help create memories and can even solve problems. When it comes to money, perspective and purpose matters. You see, money is a tool; a neutral commodity. It's what you do with it that matters. Evil men with money have destroyed communities. Good men with money have started worldwide movements to benefit humanity.
Think of how you feel or behave when you have a generous amount of money in your bank account or pocket. There is usually an endless list of things that you can do with that money. When you plan the use of your monthly income, do you think creatively of how you can use that money to benefit others? Do you also think of how you can support your friends that are in business when you purchase your monthly items? Someone in your friendship circle may sell an item that you buy every month.
I often think of ways to use my money to enrich my relationships. Each month I put some money in my budget for "on-the-go" gifts. A muffin or a bar of chocolate for a friend that I have randomly met can put a smile on their face. If they have a family, a loaf of bread or some milk can go a long way especially in difficult times that we find ourselves in as Zimbos. I also think of ways to make money management more fun and less of a dread! So, as an example, if I manage to save money on crucial budget items like food, I put that money towards self care (a manicure or a piece of jewelry).
So this month, think of ways that you can spend money to enrich your relationships. Maybe that gift to your spouse will remind them that they are still important to you even though the kids are consuming your time and energy. Or maybe saving some money on your budget can allow you to spend some money on yourself. Give yourself a reward that suits your preference. I am thinking of treating myself to Michelle Obama's Becoming book (given I save some money on my budget!:)
I loved everything that was in box. Every piece was unique and special in its own. It also felt like the items were tailor made for me. Like I prefer hook earrings to those with stoppers and I got an amazing pair of hook earrings. The box brought brightened my day :-)
From taking the chance at trying out the mystery box✨ to waiting for it to arrive I had butterflies in my tummy. 🦋 What a delight to receive it and being surprised with such a wonderful treat. 🧚🏻♀️ In my mind I thought I’d regift the items for the many birthdays that are coming up but….. now I don’t know that I can 🤭
From ordering to receiving is always such a smooth ride. Thank you! … and I guess I’ll be shopping again soon 🥰
Last year I saw a particular piece that I adored in the Mystery Boxes but never ordered anything, this year I saw the same piece and when I asked Eileen how much the piece was on its own I thought I may as well go for the Mystery Box and hope for the best, so I crossed everything and ordered and I received my Mystery Box that I am so totally delighted with - I received the very special chain that I had my eye on, plus a stunning ring that I haven't seen in Eileen's shop and a beautfiul pair of earrings. I feel greedy keeping it all so may gift something forward but I also don't want to share! lol
Thank you Eileen for your stunning jewelry and this wonderful Mystery Box idea!
I am so extremely happy with my gift box. I can't tell you how ecstatic I was to receive my box. And then to see that I received the mystery necklace as well! I'm over the moon with what I received! Rhank you Eileen for making my weekend so very special!!
