I've been pretty stressed at work this week (that's what happens when you work in an industry where any sort of Monday holiday leads to a promotional event that means you have to work MORE around a long weekend, not less), which of course made me feel the need to Treat Myself.

Side note – the most valuable lesson I ever learned from the wonderful show Parks & Rec is that sometimes, you just need to TREAT YO SELF.

Rather than go on a Madewell binge this morning, I took advantage of Glossier's free shipping promotion with no minimum to get my hands on their Coconut Balm Dotcom before it goes away until next summer. $12 isn't that much damage, and this little luxury will hopefully keep me in my relaxed summer mood for a little bit longer.

And yes, I'm working on not stress shopping. Baby steps, people.
