I loove luxury- my louboutin's (only two with plenty of self space for more), jimmy choo's and most importantly Cartier. And my friends at Cartier would be very disappointed if they dont see me often enough. We (they and I)convinced my husband, my infant daughter *needs* a love necklace to match mommy's bracelet and necklace I am bad as my luxuries are becoming necessities. I pay a fair (even generous wage to my cleaning lady). She earns much more than most recent college grads on a per hour basis. A nice good lady and worth every penny But I think charity is very important- both with money AND time. I really dont want to so self absorbed not to understand my responsibility to my community and world I live in. I also want to instill those values in my children and would like to involve them as they grow older. I cannot change the worls but I want to make small changes in someone's world. Most importantly, my huband and I are very involved with animal shelters as we LOVE animals.
