Though I have been ridiculously busy, I can’t help but think about shopping in the back of my mind. As noted before, I tend to resort to retail therapy after a long hard week. Luckily, I am staying strong and my credit card is unused for fashion.

I’m beginning to gear up for the holiday season though, as my friends have told me that they are starting to plan and make purchases. The best I can do for the moment is make lists of prospective presents for my family and friends. It would feel like cheating if I made fashion buys even for other people! Going to stay strong right up until the end. Maybe I can give some subtle hints to my loved ones that I will be very fashion deprived by December, and they can help me catch up. Keep up the good work, fellow detoxers!
