I was offered a wooden watch to review – a watch made of wood!? What? I was intrigued – I said yet. Actually Mr C made me say yes because he had his eye on a watch… JORD watches are unique as they are made of wood. They are supposed to be both classic and modern – I can appreciate a good carving, so this is a really interesting idea to me. The watch arrives […]
Things I associate with Primark: 1. Cheap and cheerful stuff. 2. Horrible crowds of pushy chavs and women with buggies who push them into the back of your legs (I don’t do this I swear, my Bugaboo cost too much). 3. Massive queues all day, every day apart from ten minutes to closing time when the staff suddenly start working five times faster. Truth is I haven’t been to Primark for a long, long time […]
Let me have a geeky cat mom moment, as I’ve seen these Ciccia purses on eBay today and I thought I’d share! These are £12.99 each – it’s good value as the purses are real leather (similar feel to Radley but without the stupid dog, CAT POWER!!!). Love the paw detail on the zipper! I don’t really have any use for the coin purses unfortunately (so cute though!) but I’d like a new make up […]
All my Christmas shopping is done. It was easy. Don’t look at me like that. All apart from Mr Candy’s. I have been looking for places to buy some nice, good quality, not-too-bright jumpers for him. (Profile: he’s a simple dresser – he prefers Muji or GAP clothes, and is very protective over his socks and underpants, even the ones with holes in them). The GAP UK site is a pile of pants, so I […]
I am always on the look out for affordable, well made, stylish, funky bras for women with big boobs – small backs (and they are hard to find). By big boobs, I mean above a G cup and by small back I mean 30-34 back, which is actually very hard to find – I have noticed that a lot of the companies that cater for big boobs don’t go beyond a G cup and if […]
An Alexander Wang that is – fabulous designer in collaboration with MAQUillage for Fall 2009. Do I need this? *nod nod*
This new bravissimo got on my nerves. Bravissimo are a company that make bras for big chi-chis. Back in the day, it was hard to get hold of bras if you had a fairly small back and big boobies so Bravissimo really took off. Nothing wrong with that… As a gal with big boobs myself I haven’t bought anything from Bravissimo for a while because: * There shops aren’t very appealing inside. They have lots […]
…because they can’t dress for sh*t. The National TV awards are the biggest waste of time, and no I didn’t watch it, I watched the fungal infection on my toe grow instead. It’s voted for by the public, which is even worse because as has been proved, the public don’t know anything. The type of people who vote for these things are generally old, or very young, lonley and care far too refer to Bruce […]
I’m not crazy in love with American Apparel, especially as its expensive in the UK, but I got this email and now I want – no NEED the circle scarf: £21 and comes in 16 colours. Now who am I kidding – as much as I want Mint or Lavender, good old Black, Brown, Olive and Slate are probably the most versatile. I am particuraly in love with the Caplet style. You like?!
I’ve discovered a lil shop called Truffle Shuffle that sells retro (well not true retro) items, – t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, a few bags. The range isn’t massive but there’s some really cool things that caught my eye, being an 80s child. I bought a barbie t-shirt – Yuk, Paris Hilton wore it. Still I think it’s cute A hoodie!: I like the rainbow swirl detail Then I got a zip up hoodie. I love the […]
ASOS have a discount code ‘TREATME’ which gives you £10 off for every £100 spend. Guess who spend £99 on Friday and didn’t know about the code. D’uh! Still, at least you guys can get to enjoy the code. Spending £100 at ASOS is not hard!
So this is just a personal moan from me, totally objective of course, but there are certain companies that always seem to screw up my orders and things. Take Oli.co.uk. Oli is a fairly new clothing company in the UK – the catalogues look fantastic, they are well designed and look much fresher than the likes of Littlewoods, Freemans, that type of home mail catalogue. However..they have some faults. I have found delivery from them […]
