8 underrated essentials worth giving a second thought to



We drop big dollars and spend numerous hours with friends choosing dresses and sparkly heels that we wear only once and end up sitting in our closet. It begs the question­: are we spending our money on the right things?

Above, find a slideshow of the things I think are worth investing in, and I don’t mean strictly financially—I mean mentally as well. Spend time choosing some eye-catching shorts for a lazy day at home. or a candle scent you love for all those strange smelling hotel rooms. Put in the hours finding jeans that make your rump look scrumptious.

The dividends of joy and envious compliments these “investments” will pay will be well worth the time taken to find them.
