The cape...

Mine is black :)

Very good very! Must try harder primark!

So I haven't had time to post a full entry this week but I just quickly want to review the new service from very and my quick whizz around primark today.

So a couple of weeks ago I found the most gorgeous feather cape on which I NEEDED! I know this is against my new ethos but I simply couldn't live with out it. So I ordered it on line and came across the delivery option called- collect+, it's free delivery and they'll deliver to a range of shops involved in the scheme near to you. Within 2 days I received a text message saying my parcel had arrived, so off I went to my local costcutter (my nearest shop in the scheme). Waiting for me was my lovely parcel and after giving the man my order number and proving who I was the cape was mine! All in all an excellent service, really quick and free delivery and free returns, what more could you want?!

So I popped into primark today (it's hard to resist) just to look around. I found three lovely things I wanted but put back due to the extortionate prices, what happened to primark prices?

1-Thin knitted union jack jumper £15 and it felt like it would shrink in one wash and that the material would go squeaky, if you know what I mean?

2- A light silver and gold Cardigan £13 way over priced.

3- Finally a lovely tweed caped jacket- very Sherlock Holmes like with a purple shot through it. Not waterproof, probably not warm and was £35 no way!! I just couldn't and wouldn't pay that for that. In old primark prices it would gave been £14 tops, do they think we haven't noticed increases?

More posts to come as I tackle the shoe room.... Xx

The beginning....

Oh my there is a lot to get through, here is a glimpse of the shop....

 Bags and accessories.....

Shoes and make up!

and we haven't even looked at the clothes yet....

Confessions of a hoarder!

I have a confession to make - I've discovered I am a hoarder! What started with a small (large) collection of shoes has progressed to a large collection of accessories, bags, make up, clothes and junk! I now have no idea what I own. Our spare room is my shoe room and is packed to the rafters, my long suffering husband calls it my shop, so now instead of actual shopping I need to do more home shopping and I don't mean on the internet!

In an attempt to catalogue what I have and to make sure I am making the most of it I've started this blog. I'm going to try my hardest to follow this saying: "use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without"

I need to find out what I have in Vixen's shop!

PS this might be really boring for anyone reading but if it's not let me know and if you want to borrow anything I might have to set up some sort of library card :)
