In my shopping bag today #MACYS sale

Dear Diary, I’ve just spent $116.51 at #MACYS. Did I have $116.51 to spend on beauty and fashion purchases? No, I did not. But you know what? It occurs to me that I’ve been waiting for years for my fortunes to change to where I have the ability to pursue some of my interests. But here I am still where I was last year and the year before that, and the year before that and so on. The way I see it, if I continue to wait, I will never move from this point where I’ve been stuck for so many years, because the universe isn’t going to change my fortunes for me while I just sit back and wait for things to happen.

So I bought a handful of things at, taking advantage of their Friends & Family Sale.

I bought a couple of cheap t-shirts to style with the blue skirt I purchased from Amazon last week.

I bought a red envelope clutch because I’ve been wanting to buy a red envelope clutch for years but kept resisting on account of the fact that I really have no use whatsoever for a red envelope clutch.

I bought a couple of O.P.I nail polishes, and I bought a beautyblender.

Did I need any of these things? No, I really didn’t, but I’ve bought them anyway. They range in price from $10 – $30. So it’s not like I went wild and crazy. $116.51 cents is nothing after all, and what’s outrageous here isn’t that I spent $116.51 on non-essentials when I know I really can’t afford it. What’s outrageous is that my financial situation is as pitiful as it is.

Here’s a gallery showcasing my purchased items.

Yes, it would be true to say that I am not in a position to be doing one hundred sixteen dollars and fifty-one cents worth of impulse shopping, but I’ve been feeling reckless lately. Acting responsibly hasn’t proven to be very rewarding. So I’ve decided it’s okay to act on impulse and spend some money on things I don’t really need. Why not?

Now I need to quadruple the werk input to try to make back what I spent and then some.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
