I know this time of year is about spending your money towards gifts for family and friends, but I think it’s important to not forgot about yourself. Recently, I made two large investments.

If you follow me on Snapchat, you would have heard my entire story about my new vlogging camera. I finally decided to get a professional camera for my vlogging habits rather than use my iPhone (even though the iPhone does give excellent quality.) After reviewing several different cameras, I decided on the Canon G7X. I got it for a bargain. The camera retails at $549.99 and will come to about $600 with taxes. Costco had a deal where this camera was $599 and had a $100 instant rebate making it $499. When I started calling around locally, I found that there was only one camera in town and it was a display camera. For display items, Costco is able to discount it if it is in perfect condition. When I went to the store, this camera became $499 and then the additional $100 instant rebate made it $399 for me. That’s the thing about large investments; you always want to find some type of a deal and if it means waiting a bit before you buy it, then so be it.
If you’ve been around these parts for a bit, you’ll know that I am a ride or die Daniel Wellington lover. Even back in 2013, I was rocking my original watch which is evident from this post. Earlier this year, I was even able to get my boyfriend on board with the brand which is evident from this post. I absolutely adore the watches. I also include the DW watches in random posts from time to time but it’s one of those fashion bits I will always love without a doubt. If you’ve never had the opportunity to buy your own Daniel Wellie, then stay tuned on my blog for a giveaway in just a few weeks for your very own 😉
Another big purchase of mine was this Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody Bag. Ironically enough, this was also purchased at Costco during a random shopping day. They had a limited quantity of some luxury high end bags (Michael Kors, Burberry, Rebecca Minkoff, etc.) and I’ve been looking for a beautiful Rebecca Minkoff bag for quite some time. I fell instantly in love with this one, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it during our shopping trip so I went back and grabbed it. I saved a good $60 from the original retail price because Costco always has a deal. If you’re not from the United States, Costco is a large wholesaler where food and everything else you can think of is sold for cheaper than the standard retail price because they buy everything in bulk.
Now tell me, what big girl purchases have you made recently?
