Mending a broken heart can be a long process, but
there's something that can help speed up your recovery time that may
surprise you...shopping for your home! Think about it - who doesn't like
a little shopping spree? After a relationship goes sour, you'll
definitely need a little pick-me-up, so take that phrase literally and
pick-it-up and put it in your shopping bag. There's a reason they call
it "retail therapy" - shopping really can give you that emotional boost
you need.

Normally, though, when we think of a shopping spree, we think of
buying a hot new outfit or a great handbag. But in most cases, trends
pass and those items end up at the backs of our closets after one or two
uses. So, instead of blowing your money on a quick fix, pick out a new
piece of furniture or accent piece for your home - not only will
redefining your living space help you reinvent yourself after a breakup,
it'll last a bit longer than a pair of heels. Our very own Monique
Zamir touched on this
in a previous piece
noting that you shouldn't be afraid to try some
crazy ideas.

If you want to spice up your home as part of your post-breakup
reinvention, here are a few shopping ideas and some specific
destinations with great finds:

Apartment 48:
Apartment 48 is a NYC-based boutique with an online shopping
destination (apt48.com)
that has everything to give your place a new look, from furniture and
kitchenware to home accessories like beautiful trays and candles.
Everything in this store has taste, style, and personality, and with
just one or two small conversation pieces, you can really wake up a room
in your house. Apartment 48 is a great place to start when you're
shopping to reinvent your home - the shop was opened by an interior
designer and in its original location was set up to actually resemble an
apartment. The new, larger store still presents all items in an actual
apartment setting to give visitors inspiration, but you can find
everything online as well.
