An Accidental Haul Part 2

June 2, 2014
Haul

You know when you really shouldn’t go shopping but you do anyway? Well I blame Pants entirely (and you can see her haul post here!) and can’t be held responsible for my inability to say no to a good bargain shop! As we are both supposed to be saving money for festival season at the moment we limited ourselves to only four shops – Primark, Superdrug, Boots and Poundland.   Boots – Primark  £10 I felt an overwhelming sense of guilt…

Accidental May Haul

May 29, 2014
may-haul

Sometimes you just want to shop. It’s an urge that truly can not be ignored, especially if Gem and I are left alone, unsupervised! This afternoon was definitely one of those times and we ended up going on a completely unplanned spree. No budget style shop would be complete without a trip to Primark and even though I didn’t -need- anything at all, I still ended up with a bag full of stuff. I absolutely adore giraffes and I squeeled…

You don’t have to conform to be successful

November 15, 2013

  (Brains and I looking successful above. Note how we still look like a bunch of greebo’s, even though we are dressed up!) I now find myself reading a lot of Magazines. Most of the content I find is mindless dribble and I have to be honest and say that I’m only interested in either the products they come with, or the hope of finding miracle cosmetics that I don’t already own. Despite this, I still read them from cover…

Oct/Nov’s Most Wanted

October 30, 2013

It’s the time of year when I should be focusing my purchases on others, ready for Christmas. Unfortunately all this does, is fuel my longing for products that I happen to spot along the way. There are so many things that I want -need- this festive period that I have no idea where to begin! First up, Dior in “Rouge Dior 999″, because even though I already own over 9000 red lipsticks, I really need this one! I don’t know…

Primark “Rock Chic” Accessory Haul!

September 30, 2013
Primark Accessories Rock Chick

I’d actually only planned on popping in to pick up some £5 fake uggs to laze about in, but I couldn’t help a tiny little look at the other bargains on offer! Although I frown in despair when I see a fashionista sporting a bullet belt or a trvegrym band shirt that they’ve never heard of, I do love being able to pick up “alternative” accessories at high street prices! Okay so I only really wanted the black and silver…

Nothing last’s forever, right?

August 26, 2013

WRONG! First and foremost, Metal -is- forever. With that bold impregnable statement shared, I do all that I can to preserve metal artifacts so that I may have them in my possession forever. I also collect a vast array of things to remind me of good times. Some examples include tickets and posters. (I get very annoyed when ticket people don’t give me my half of the ticket back, or I have to print out an “e-ticket”)   Another of…

Shirley Carnival Spoils!

July 14, 2013
Shirly carnival spoils bracelets

A large part of my job as the co-owner of a part time music school involves hanging around at carnivals, fetes and other community events promoting the joys of learning music, so of course I take up every opportunity I can to peruse the plethora of craft, jewellery, organic and plant stalls that often crop up at such events! Yesterday was Shirley Carnival and it was blisteringly hot so I only had one quick sprint around, however there were three…

The tardis festival bag.

July 11, 2013

I do enjoy hand bags of all varieties – although mostly ones that are red and full of pockets for me to store all sorts of things in. Years ago, however, my sole reliance was on my backpack which is sadly dying the death of overused, overfilled and overworn. At festivals, you need something that you can have on your back or over your shoudler, that is going to remain attached to you even when intoxicated. The sort of bag that does…
