Sometimes, I get into really bad moods. There's nothing wrong, exactly, just this feeling of general malaise that brings me down. I hate that feeling, but the truth of the matter is that sometimes retail therapy really is the best medicine. I don't mean that you have to max out your credit card making huge purchases. I mean sometimes just buying some small, bright, shiny thing can make you happy. Here are some colorful pick-me-ups you can buy any time that always make me happy.

A cute pair of shoes will always brighten my day. You don't have to spend a fortune, either; when it comes to colorful pick-me-ups you can buy any time, there are lots of places where you can buy shoes on the cheap. Here's one, Payless is another; heck, I've even been known to pick up a pair at Target. It doesn't matter whether they're heels or sandals or sneakers, either, as long as they make you feel good.
