Compulsive spenders and impulse shoppers, look away now.

Does your home rival a mini-department store? Does your bank call you regularly questioning your purchases? Would you manage to spend money even on a deserted island?

You're not alone. Some people just like to spend.

Ssssh, we won't tell if you won't.


1. Lace Bunny Ears by Maison Michel, €560,

Do you need these intricate grosgrain lace rabbit ears? Absolutely not. But you would be the best dressed bunny should any Easter fancy dress parties come up.


2. Crocodile Jotter,€330,

Because you would take infinitely better notes on one.

3. Frends Headphones, starting from €130,

Sure you get free headphones with your Smartphone or on an airplane, but music sounds better through this fashion-forward pair.


4. Beach Towel, €256, Maslin & Co.

Lounging under the sun has never looked so good.


5. Umbrella, €395, Burberry

Because you’d be singing in the rain with this bad boy. 


6. Eyelash Curlers, €24.50, Shu Uemura

Because those eyelashes won’t flutter themselves.


7. Novelty Lunchboxes, €11, Paper Chase

Because tuperware is for basics.


8. Fur Phone Case, €21, Skinny Dip

Because it can double as a teeny-tiny pillow for those tough days in the office? Win win.
