A ramble

Money. I can never seem to make this last! As soon as I get paid it goes, I suppose it is my fault that I cant bear to stay in and I like nice things but still managing to spend £400 in a week is pretty bad. Im in my holiday fund again, thats 50 quid I already owe and will probably go up, payday is not until the 26th. Ebay is being a drag, all the things I seem to have left no one seems to want to buy. I might have to have a serious rumage and see if I can bear to throw anything else out. My wardrobe is shocking as it is without me cutting it down even more. There is nothing I dont like in there.
I brought another lace item, its seriously becoming an issue. Everytime I go it im either clad in lace or floral. But its so pretty and looks so old fashioned! Its a cream long lace shirt, if i had the body of a supermodel I would wear it with leggings. But alas I dont. So im thinking of wearing it with black skinnies or my black body con skirt undone with a black body underneath. And it was the only one left in Primark, must have been a return, so it was obviously meant for me. I really could not pass the opportunity up.
Im back on weightwatchers, Im putting on weight like nobodys business. Everyting that I like just seems to look so terrible or even worse im struggling to even get it on. I have no one else to blame but myself really I just am eating too much and not exercise. Ive polished the bike and got the old weightwatchers books out. Im determined to lose a stone and a half before my holiday in September. I can do it, ive lost 3 stone in 4 months before, but I just need to get in the right mindset. Once ive been doing it for a week, im like a beast so so disiplined. But its just getting passed that first week. Why do i have to have a fat person dying to get out?
I also want to see Robin Hood. I dont care if everyone is slating it syaing it just another version of Gladiator. I love Russell Crowe in films like this, I think he plays these characters so well. And I love the story of Robin Hood, I really like the idea of someone stealing from the rich to give to the poor. What does the rich need all their money for? I might have to dip in the holiday fund for this film.

Shopping list

This is what I got this payday. The amount is tragic. Darn trying to save for a holiday and two parents deciding they needed to have a birthday just a week apart. At least I brought something though. But alas nothing from Topshop.

I finally relented and invested in some gladiator sandals. Im still not quite sure if they make me look like I have sausage legs. They have an ankle cuff so from Primark could make me too more chunkier than i actually am. Ive took the labels off anyway now so its not like I can take them back. Just have to wait till the summer to see if I actually wear them! They are lovely though, have a tribal thing going on which i love this season. Just need a maxi dress to wear them with.
Next item from Primark was a spotty top. I love this, I think that the statement shoulders add a little something to it. I was not too impressed though when the boyfriend told me I looked like an american footballer. What does he know? During the day it could add a little sparkle, make a dull outfit of skinny jeans and flats well not so dull anymore. It also wont look too try hard for a casual outfit. And it was only £6 cannot resist a bargain. Finally I brought a playsuit. I have been lusting over buying a playsuit for aggggges. Ive always been a bit worried about the dreaded camel toe appearing if I were to invest. But this one did not let me down. I love the print, its wintery enough that it can be worn in the winter with tights but because it is shorts it can also be worn in the summer. Good all rounder! It also looks a little vintage with the ditsy flowers and frill round the neckline, may have to invest in a brooch though its extremely low and would more than likely pop open should i be under the influence. I wore it out at the weekend and got lots of compliments! Good buy!
