I’d buy all of the makeup pallets I want to try out. Also lots of bath bombs and epsom salt lol. Also, it’s up to what you like. Do you like dancing, drawing, cooking, or anything particular? Spend those $$ to satisfy your curiosity about what you’ve always wanted to try

Love all of these ideas. Jewelry is fun or a great pair of shoes, boots or a new handbag.

How about dance lessons or art classes? Art of medication camp etc? I also love treating myself to fancy books or a 10 session Zumba package. Really depends on what you want. Really nice Kate spade bag ?

I would also vote for jewelry or a classic yet expensive handbag. I always bought a piece of jewelry for milestone events and a couple pieces I have give me a “I can do this” boost when I need it!
