Welcome to my 24th post - & hello & thanks to my 124 followers!
So, my resolution to post more over the half term obviously didn't quite go to plan. I'm sure you weren't expecting any less from me, but I do apologise - as usual.. I'm starting to sound like a broken record aren't I!?
This is going to be a really random post I think. I just decided I needed to stop making it all such a big deal in my head, & just do it. So here I am.
First things first, I've decided to kick off again with a tasty man! Another one I'd forgotten about from my previous post..
The rather lovely, Mr James Nesbitt. Definitely got something about him this man. Such a cheeky chappie! The only time I haven't thought much of him was in Murphy's Law - the facial hair just didn't do it for me!
Anyway, I've bought rather a lot of stuff recently, but I haven't got photos of any of it yet - I also haven't managed to sort out pics of my giveaway wins yet - I'm basically useless.. So, as I said, random post.
The lovely weather has inspired me to go sandal shopping. I have rather a lot of shoes, but I find sandals quite difficult - I cannot handle toe-posts. You'd be surprised how many millions of pairs of sandals this discounts immediately!
I didn't find much at all for quite a while.. I wasn't desperate for new sandals, I do have a couple of pairs, but I just fancied some different ones..! Didn't want to spend a huge amount. Mainly because I don't like spending much on anything!
Then I came across these:
For the absolutely bargain price of £8.40 - including free delivery & free returns. So they became mine! They arrived at the weekend & I wore them on Sunday - brilliant. Job done.
However, when I just quickly visited the site to steal that photo.. lo & behold, they have new stock of flat, toe-post-less sandals to tempt me with!
So.. I've now just ordered these babies:
The pink & purple ones were the even more bargainous price of £6 each - & the cream/white ones were a whole .. wait for it! ... £3.80!
& like I said, free delivery & free returns. Or they do offer next day delivery, if you needed something in a hurry & to be fair, that's only £3.50, which is very reasonable!
I'm sure you're all wondering what wonder this website is.. let me share with you:
Check it out! It really does come recommended - I've bought a few things from there now (including a couple of gorgeous maxi dresses & I've never had any problems with them whatsoever. I will warn you, there's quite a variety of items on there in my opinion - it's one of those where if you have a good look, you'll find something great - but on first glance, you could be mistaken for thinking it's just tacky tat. In the nicest possible way!
Change of subject, but I am now the owner of my first ever OPI nail varnishes, courtesy of my sister. Bless her!
We've had quite an up & down relationship for a really long time now - we totally hated each other for quite a while (couple of years..?), but we seem to be past that & are getting on pretty well at the moment. Long may it last!
I'm the type of person that if I see something I think someone would like, I'll get it for them (within reason obviously), but I do like giving people things. So I've given her various things over the years & since she had her baby, I'm always buying things for him too!
She's never been like that at all, but then yesterday she texted me saying she'd got me a new nail varnish because she thought it might cheer me up after my first day back at work.. & by gum, it did! It's just so unlike her. I don't know what came over her, but I'm not complaining!
I googled the names to get these pics, because I still don't know where my camera is, & my phone camera wouldn't pick the colours up properly at all - so here goes:
Sapphire In The Snow. &:
Ate Berries In The Canaries
So I'm quite excited to see if I notice much difference - I've never had a more expensive nail varnish y'see. The majority of mine are George @ Asda - £1.50 or less! & I've always been totally happy with that. But I am interested to see the difference!
Right, I will leave you with a random pic of a ring I've rediscovered recently & so have been wearing quite a bit of - I love it!
You can also see what colour nails I've been sporting (although it is now a whole week in, this nail varnish, so don't look too closely!)
PS. There are certain blogs that I follow, that for some totally unknown reason, will NOT load for me recently. I don't know what's going on. The majority are fine, but there are a few that however I try & get to them, it just won't happen! Highly annoying. Thought I'd mention it - if I normally comment you & you haven't heard from me in a while, that may well be why - your blog doesn't like me looking at it!
