5 Things You Should Definitely Own by the Time You Turn 40
You’ve held out long enough
Real talk for a sec: There’s a time in life when you should stretch your resources and there’s a time in life (ahem, 40) when you should splurge on the hard-earned perks. Here, five things every about-to-turn-40 woman should own.
A Quality Handbag
You’re only as put together as the bag you carry, after all. Splurge on a leather top-handle number that you’ll basically wear every day for a decade and, hello, it just paid for itself.
A Car That Won’t Break Down on the Turnpike
AAA membership or not, you no longer have time for an iffy vehicle that may (or may not) get you where you need to go. We’re not saying the car you drive has to win a Formula 1 race, but, at this point in your life, it needs to be reliable—and help you arrive at your destination, sans anxiety.
A Really Amazing Mattress
Just like your quality handbag, it’s an investment, but divide the cost by the number of nights you’ll use it, then remind yourself: You can’t put a price on a good night’s sleep.
A High-End Hair Dryer
Yes, it’s possible to give yourself a salon-level blowout at home. The catch? You have to pony up for a high-end (and preferably ionic) hair dryer first.
