A Package of Packaging
Sometimes a plain grey mailing bag can hide wonderous things….
I couldn’t resist these brightly coloured mailers in funky designs when I saw then recently.
A Punch-y Parcel
As the owner of a MAMBI Happy Planner, I have long coveted one of these punches to make my own inserts and dashboards etc.
A price reduction (and the justification that it could pay for itself by me making and selling these for others*) finally convinced me to order one.
*There are MANY crafty/ arty/ stationery/ techy/ makery/ gadgety supplies & instruments bought worldwide due to this very justification, I AM NOT ALONE!!
So, I’ve been working a lot during what is supposed to be my 6 weeks school holidays, but during my lunch break a the other a day I got an email offering me a deal from New Look that was too good to refuse. If I spent £50 or more on their website within a two-hour window that day, I would receive a £25 voucher. It seemed like a pretty good deal!
I had been eyeing one particular skirt for a while (in fact, I had even tried it on in store), but didn’t really want to pay the £29.99 price tag. But now?? Hmmmm, it would give me something new to wear for dinner during our weekend away. So, I quickly followed the necessary steps to register for the deal and RESULT! The skirt was reduced to £20!! I added some tops and summery vests and placed my order.
So, somewhat disappointingly, when it arrived and I tried The.Skirt.Of.My.Dreams on in something other than changing room lighting; I discovered the lining was entirely useless and you could see through it completely. So, it’s going back and I don’t get my £25 voucher. *sad face*
Moral of the story: if you are going to buy this skirt, don’t!
I received the rather intriguingly titled Madame Bildungsroman’s Optimistic Worldview ; written by Nora Chassler and published by Valley Press; via a Goodreads giveaway.
Watch out for my review!
