A right old bargain at three quid.

2009

I keep spending way too much money on clothes. Recently i have been arguing with myself about my over spending as i have now seemed to fill 2 wardrobes at home yet still have nothing to wear. I have recently aquired a fur coat, lace dress, lfat vintagte boots, embellished jacket, ST Tropez tan (as if i need this in winter?) lace padded shoulder top, knee high boots and lots of Barry M Nail varnish. I seem to have forgotton the amount i spent at Christmas not to mention the credit cards and bills i need to pay out soon. God i am rubbish!
New years resoulution number 1 - stop spending money you dont have. Mastercard is not a friend, its an enemy.

2. Srop eating Wispa's as 'meals'
3. Actaully do some exercise this year.
4. Stop dying your hair (it may fall out soon..)
5. Dont pine after the morons you usually do (convicts, ex-convicts, emotional retards and alcoholics)
6. Trey to lose 2lbs a week (and not in money!)

Considering number 6, i actually stayed the same at the weight in this week. I seem to have not put on 6lbs as i first thought. I did consume a lot of food b ut hardly any drink so it may have just cancelled out. Tomorrow is another story, i am going out dancing all night so that allows for some serious drinking to be taken (am i sure alcoholics are bad for me??..)

Happy New Year and i will be back in 2010

 My highlights this year.

The Big Chill 2009 (August) - This was anamazing festival and i will be going to it again next year. The music, the weather and the company was perfect i couldnt have asked for a better weekend.

Bestival 2009 (September) - Although not as perfect in weather and moments as the Big Chill, as i had to work, it was full ofbanter and lads of friends i had missed all over summer.

Balaton Sound, Hungary (June) - Another amaxing festival yet in Budapest. Great friend, great musci and a tent located on the side of Lake Balaton. Perfect.

London- I seem to have been adopted by my Forest Hill friends. This of coure is by there own will, and i would consider myself to live there every Friday and Saturday.

Temper Trap and Florence - My staples in music when i am driving or training it to London. Great sounds and amazing mellow feelings.

New Friends - I have made some weird and wonderful friends this year while on my escapades. Some i have never met, and some i have known but have become close with. Its a great new start to new adventures for 2010.

Cheryl Cole - Oh god.

Twilight - A bit late, but i am now infatuated. I have finished all books and although geeky, this trivia kept me sane for a good month for so.

Thailand - make or break of some things but it was a great moment for change. Some for good some for bad but change doesnt always have to be something to be scared of, and some people i know have become a better person for it.

Rivals should take notice..



One was from last week, one was created January 2009. Who's the researcher in this establishment?

Covert Candy - Vintage clothes



Covert Candy is another fantastic website which hosts a virtual world of shopping, for free! Thats right, you dont have to spend a penny. For those of us who buy clothes, wear them once and leave them in our drawers never to be worn again, covert candy is a great site to get rid of your unwanted clothes. Users can gain credits for the amount of clothes they sell - earning more credits for clothes to 'buy'. Not only can you exchange clothes, but network with fellow fashionista's and build a rapport with other users. Not only is it great for our social status, but it also stops clothes being thrown into landfill sites thus wasting perfectly good garments that could be used elsewhere. Even if you dont exchange clothes, Covert Candy has its own vintage shop were there are a range of products for resonable prices. Men and Women can both shop online- dont think its just a 'girl thing' because men can dress to impress too. Bags and shoes are also evident ranging in all sorts of styles and sizes. Shopping by brand may be easier for those designer bunny's out there, with the list rangin from Disel to H&M.


There are short videos on the sitr which highlight how to use the websute well - if you didnt know alrady. Cocert Candy also gives customers top up on credit from time to time - saving you even more 'virtual' pennies. With Christmas only days away, its a great way to make space in that already 'clutterd' wardrobe for the new year. Start selling your old or new clothes and you might just be able to find space for more...



With a service that is 100% free to use, there is no middle man. its just you and your customers swapping clothes.

Santa please can you bring me..



lala Berlin £335

                                Jimmy Choo Snakeskin Wellingstons
                                                                      £235

The bracelet is by Alex Monroe and is £110. I think wrapped up on a lovely winters day after a huge Christmas lunch, this would make anyone feel special over Christmas.

I wish, i wish...



Look at these delights from Net A Porter.com. The Lingerie is so delicate and beautiful, its a perfect gift for even me who is shameful an unmatching shame. Imagine all gift wrapped with floral beads and a bow, laying in the dishevelled morning hangover from the night before. It would brighten up a frosty morning...


I have also been humming down some bargains and recently went to the Camden Stables and bought some vintage boots and some slippers. Very rock onand roll i know, but i was meant to be shoping for others, not me. I will upload pics later.

Hectic Times

So i have been major busy recently with Mock exams and prep for my AS students. I have been getting into work for 8am and not leaving till 5pm - dying in the traffic on the way home and not falling asleep till 10. Thats early i know, but i am shattered. I have not been doing much other than attending the London night scene, but this weekend i am heading into aLondon in the day and shopping with the girls in camden and Brick Lane. I am excited to get some presents that i dont see anywhere else. aI always seem to get the same items for my family; clothes, books and dvd's. This year i got my sister a lovely jumper from Zara - i wanted to spend more money. I spent £80 on myself of course which is stupid on hair extensions, clothes and a gorgeous dress from Topshop.

Anyway i will promise to keep more posted. I have had to quite writing for EMMA.TV as i have been s busy. So fingers crossed in the NY i can manage my time more and hopefully get some more freelance work. I am also looking to set up my .co.uk so i can get more work.

for now i will leave tyou with this years Turner Prize Winner ; Richard Wright
