Window Shopping

For months my Susan Miller horoscope app has been warning me about the Lunar Eclipse on April 15th. And it’s actually been warning me to be frugal because I will be hit with a lot of unexpected expenses around the eclipse. I majorly procrastinated on my taxes this year and didn’t get everything to my accountant until the 14th, and thus, I found out how much I owe to Uncle Sam this morning. #passthebarfbag Seeing as Seamless doesn’t deliver Dirty Martinis, I had Pinkberry delivered to my office this afternoon to help ease the pain.

I also found out that I got accepted for my new apartment today! (Had to interview with the co-op board yesterday.. Kind of scary!) And while it’s fabulous news that I got the apartment, it just means that I have to fork over even more money this week. What can I say, Susan is usually right.

The Shopbop Friends & Family Sale is always one that I look forward to, but seeing as I had to write some hefty f*cking checks today, I’ll just be window shopping this time around. Retail therapy is usually my method of coping, but I’ll just have to stick to froyo today. And probably definitely some wine tonight.

If you’re looking for ways to blow your refund check, here are some of my favorites…

    sorry Jess..I’m queen of procrastination when it comes to my tax filings, my accountant can attest. First year ever I’ve been ahead of game with a refund in tow. I joked today with colleagues that in news tonite it would be reported that Uncle Sam suffered heart attack attributed to me filing on time. Good luck to you! Feel your pain..

    Taxes are the worst, but at least you got that apartment!! And btw, speaking of the Shopbop sale – you totally convinced me to get the Rag & Bone sweatpant jeans … now I’m just hoping I can squeeze my pregnant caboose into them!

    Great picks! And I completely hear you about unexpected expensive f*cking everything up. I’d just like to thank my university for the one class/one time-slot/one semester policy that essentially forces everyone to take summer school at least once. Goodbye 2500$. And goodbye summer. #shootmenow
