Video killed the radio star

Look what I found in a charity shop! Brand new! It was £25, not a massive saving as they range between £40-£50 in the shops but it was still a bargain in my eyes! Its in such pristine condition, the box is a little battered but this is more than likely where it has been in storage. Its a special Queens Golden Jubilee edition brought out in 2002.
It is so beautiful! It matches my bedroom perfectly. I went to my nearest post office to post off some ebay things and thought Id have a quick mooch in the two charity shops that are near it. I had no intention of buying anything as I am going to see Flashdance at the West End tomorrow and really need to save my pennies. When I spotted it I let out a gasp, literally! I ran out and phoned my mum to ask her if she wanted to buy it for me for my birthday, which is on Sunday. When she agreed I ran back inside to get my grubby mitts on it! She is going to give me the money back
It make me want to dress in 1040's clothes and huddle round it to listen for news on the war. I have no idea where I am going to put it yet! I need to find a plug socket that is not under my bed.


  1. Ahhh, I have this! I got it in Morrisons, of all the places, a few years ago!


  2. Amazing. I have one in purple that i got as a gift a few christmas' ago, i think it was really expensive full price ;/ .x hivennn. p.s enter my giveaway?

  3. Oh it's so cute! Great buy

  4. what an awesome find! well done you :) cute blog too! xo

  5. Lovely! My housemate has one that she bought in Argos not too long ago, but I don't know if it's the exact same one. Maybe I'm just missing out on Flashdance, seeing as I'm the same age as you, you're not that old :p

  6. that is lovely! £25 is a bit steep for a charity shop though...or maybe i am just cheap haha
