I pride myself on my honesty. I always give back change if I have received too much, if I break something I'll admit it and apologise, I don't return items with sketchy reasons. So why when I make a clothing or shoe purchase I don't prance around in front of my husband showing off the newest additions to my wardrobe. I don't hide anything at the back of my wardrobe but I also don't like to bring his attention to it. Is that dishonest too?
Why do I do this? Is it ingrained into my bloodline? Probably. There is a silent rule in my family, if my sister or aunt or any other females turns up in something new, shiny and gorgeous, we just give a each other a look. This one look manages to convey so much. It says "You look great, is that new, I love it. I wish I saw it first and tell me later where you got it". Do we think the men won't understand or do we just not want to bore them with the insignificant details?
I am the same with makeup, skincare or haircare products too. Is it the money spent or maybe it's because I want him to think I am just a low maintenance natural kinda girl.
Are you out and proud with your purchases or a quiet little mouse?
