Treat Yo’ Self (Without Breaking the Bank) With These Upscale Everyday Products

First of all, I ask that you forgive me for the title of this article; I couldn’t resist. The phrase has constantly been at the back of my mind since Parks and Recreation made the line famous. If I question whether or not I should get myself something a little extra, I hear Aziz Ansari’s voice reply “Treat yo’ self.” Should I buy that purse? Treat yo’ self. Eat crab for dinner? Treat yo’ self. Do I really need to splurge on a massage? Treat yo’ self. It’s gotten to the point where I believe I deserve any and everything because I earned it, right? Though I may deserve everything I want, I can’t always afford it. So, I compromise. Instead of buying whatever I want on a whimsy, I purchase high-quality versions of things that I really need. Do you want your life to feel a little more luxurious without constantly shoveling over extra dough? Treat yo’ self to the items on this list.
