Guilty Pleasures - Part 3 - TK Maxx!!!

Don't you just love TK Maxx!

Yes it looks like a jumble sale at times but there are some real gems to be had!

The other day one of my local branches had some fab designer stuff including Missoni, Calvin Klein Couture, Cerruti and the wonder that is Emilio Pucci all for loads less than the rrp !

I am the world biggest Pucci fiends, the colours, the swirls - amazing ! and to get a bag for over £100 less than the retail price made me a very happy Lou Lou!

I've bought some fab Missoni, Chloe, CK, Matthew Williamson and Givenchy in the past - amazing labels for a cheaper price

With TK Maxx we can all afford a bit of designer in our lives - brave the jumble sale like rails, practise your rifling and grab a bargain!

Boredom Relief ! Ahhh!

When your ill and bored you really need something to do to keep you thinking positive and to keep your brain working.

As well as my Psychology Diploma - I am also doing a bit of crafty stuff at the moment - making greetings cards and scrapbooking my New York holiday pics

Here are a couple of Mothers Day Cards I made - the floral one was from me and the butterfly one was from the cats signed with a paw print stamp :)

Really satisfying and enjoyable!

Belated Greetings !

Belated Birthday Greetings for Helen for Saturday - Your Getting Old Chick! - One More Year Till Your Thirty! LOL!

Also Belated Mothers Day Greetings to My Fab Mum! I Don't Know Where I Would Be Without You x

Top Shop "K" Jeans - A Miracle!

Eventually managed to find a pair of these babies in my size and boy am I pleased I did!

They make your legs look longer and they squish my bum and tum in with the high waist detail - I don't think I am brave enough to tuck things into them yet but even with thing over the top they give you a fab shape (despite the rubbish photo!)

Guilty Pleasures - Part 2 - Primark!

Don't you just love Primark - the pocket money clothes shop that's turned into the fashionistas favourite!

Fair enough the quality isn't always the best and the ethics are questionable but that is no different from anyone else on the high street - The prices though are amazing a jacket for £15, dresses for less than a tenner, and my fab top for only £8 - magazines are full of Primark items and high eBay prices and sellouts are common !

A huge thumbs up fashionable items for a fab price - a bag of goodies for less than £40 is amazing value and makes shopping a money saving exercise ;)
