Wish upon a star

I’ve been on an I WANT rant this week. Unfortunately I’ve had an expensive month and another couple coming up so even though its not anything too expensive I have to save. Also I’m in desperate need of some clothes seeing as mine are getting too big (YIPPEE!!)  On the other hand I do have a birthday coming up….hmmm

Punky Allsorts bracelets- so cute.

River Island Watch- I can’t link but its white and silver and lovely!

Sex and the City Boxset– I have the DVDs but they’ve been played so much they need to be replaced- plus the boxset is much cooler- and a pretty good price.

Truffle Shuffle retro t-shirts.

H&M. I love H&M and head there everytime I get to the UK- I know it’s a bit Hit & Miss (get it??) but I’m dying to have a look around and pick up a few summery bits. I can’t believe there isn’t one in Cork. I know there’s one in Limerick but it’s a bit too far to head on the off chance.

Well, I suppose this year I’ll actually have suggestions when I’m asked what I want for my birthday-not the usual “Ah Nothing really”.


Shop ’til you drop.


Whew, I’m pooped. Bit of a long day.
I had one of those nights sleep last night where you go to sleep fine but wake up with a start at 3am. I think I finally dropped off at about 5am and the binmen woke me what seemed like 5 minutes later but in real time was about 8.
I had to go to Closest City today, one of my friends is having a party tomorrow and I had nothing to wear. Now, I know everyone says that but in this case it’s true. I’m a bit in between sizes at the moment due to this diet and weightloss program I’ve undertaken- though not as inbetween as I’d like to be.
I was hoping to pick up a cheap dress in Pennys (Primark to you non- Irish readers) but no such luck. I know it’s a cheapy shop but sometimes you can get some real gems, not today though. I had a look in Awear and New Look (Jesus, New Look is gone crap!!) and eventually decided to go to shopping centre 2. My brother was with me suitably bored but, hey it was his choice to tag along.
At Shopping Centre 2 we grabbed a burger (no bun for me, I’ve turned into a no-carber) and I discovered Debenhams had 20% off everything, woo hoo. Eventually found a dress in Oasis that was originally marked €60, which I wouldn’t have paid but was down to €51 and with another 20% off didn’t seem too bad so sorted,a along with some accessories and undies I’m good to go. It was one of those days where I could have brought loads but I’ve a few things coming up in the next few weeks and I need to save a few cent.
Then after a short drive to Next Town West which is driving and parking HELL but where my bank is located to lodge some bill money, here I am at home along with sore feet a frayed temper and a bit less cash but having achieved my goal for today at least.
Is it too early to go to bed now????

PS This is the dress I got in case you want to see it .I like it and it looks OK on. I’ll probably wear it with opaques and heels. I’m hoping once I’ve lost a bit more weight I’m a bit more confident with dresses and skirts the way I used to be.
