If Aziz Ansari's raddest-of-the-radsauce sequined jacket doesn't inspire you to Treat Yo Self, I don't know WHAT will. Much like all our treasured nuggets of wisdom to guide us through an uncertain future, this nugget was gleaned from television, more specifically, NBC's sitcom, Parks and Recreation. I don't even like sitcoms, nor do I watch them regularly, I just catch parts and pieces, but the famous Treat Yo Self segment has pretty much become a mantra for myself, friends and much of the Interwebs. And for good reason. You should treat yo self and put yourself first for a day. But it needs to be something meaningful. Don't eat whipped cream from the cans until you asphyxiate yourself, or max out your credit card on hideous luxury crap like this, that you know you will never, ever use. Treat Yo Self and make it count!

I felt like I heartily celebrated my first Treat Yo Self mini-adventures of the year, which only served as a reminder to not forget about this glorious self-imposed fake holiday. If this post hasn't inspired you to design-your-own day, you need to Treat Yo Self to watching the original clip from Parks and Rec because damn, it's funny, yo.
