Merry Christmas (to me!)

On Black Friday I read an article that said people are more likely this year to "self-gift" than they have in the past.  I thought, well why not?!  If you're already planning on getting a big ticket item, why wouldn't you buy it on Black Friday or Cyber Monday/Cyber The Rest of the Holiday Season when it's on super sale?

On that note, I've been eyeing a new camera for almost two years, trying to bite the bullet and make the purchase.  On Cyber Monday, the camera I've been lusting over was on super sale (yay!) so I decided to go for it.  Helloooooooo new toy/baby/love:

Once I get a chance to test it out I'll let you know what I think!  

Have you been self-gifting this year?  What are your thoughts, so good or no good? 


  1. Hooray for a new camera! Can't wait to see some pics with it :)

  2. I am definitely guilty of self-gifting! But who knows me better than myself, right? Enjoy your new camera! I can't wait to see your pictures!

  3. I bought myself a pretty ring and curling iron for Christmas. Now that I'm older, I don't get many gifts so I treat myself. A DSLR is on my wish list- so glad you got yours!

  7. All I'm sayin' is, if you're gonna self-gift, it might as well be at Christmas time when everything is so cheap! I have been self-gifting all holiday season and have yet to buy anything for anyone else yet. Whoops.
