How much is too much?!

Within the fashion and beauty industry, a certain level of shopping is essential. It’s only natural that I enjoy the sport given the field I’m in. However, I often have people telling me I shop too much… but how much is too much? I work hard and have no children so my money is my own at the minute (obviously my priorities will change when I decide to have a family). I pay my bills, I’m not in any debt and I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently. People have their niches when it comes to spending, some enjoy lavish cars, others it’s home interior and for me it’s clothes and make up. Spending money on clothes is somewhat of an necessity as I can’t walk around naked but I do enjoy treating myself to a top or bag that catches my eye. I have noticed recently that some people think I spend too much on make up in particular. Yes, I have a large collection that I take great pride in (and I don’t mean this is a bratty way) but like I’ve said, I work hard and I’m not in any debt so why shouldn’t I spend my money on what I want to?!

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I’m still curious regarding this topic and thought I’d discuss it on here. Of course there are times when other situations come up such as an unexpected bill, travel or the choice to have a baby, buy a car or home. When the day comes I’ll naturally switch from make up to nappies (and I’ll be more than happy to do so) but until that day comes, Sephora and Space NK are my guilty pleasures.
