I can't say I've had luck of my side for the past two weeks - I've been ill, I still haven't moved house, and only afew days ago a filling fell out (this has never happened, ever) while eating a bagel of all things! Oh, and I have a sore blocked pore in my eyebrow just to top it off.
My filling falling out was the last straw and to be honest I had to hold back the tears! But I think this was down to being stressed and not actually anything to do with the hefty dentist bill I was going to have to pay.
So I decided I need to relax, de-stress and treat myself abit.
Since I've been abit stressed reading has gone out the window and it is a really nice relaxing thing to do. So instead of ordering a book off Amazon and having to wait for it to come, I decided to go to a charity shop and see what they had. I can't say I buy anything other than books from charity shops and frankly it isn't really my taste, but I do dislike people that think charity shops are embarrassing! There were so many popular books that are in the charts, but I remembered reading a good review on The Memory Keeper's Daughter.
Also picked up afew magazine - I do prefer reading blogs these days but there is just something about reading a magazine like Red or Marie Claire, more of a variety of topics I guess.
I also picked up afew things for my Italian friend, Fiamma - so I am hoping she won't be reading this! I got her the Revlon Super Lustrous lip gloss in Coral Reef and also two 2true products as I know you can't get these in Italy.
I also made sure to stock up on some SLS free shampoo as I have been without it for 2 weeks now and the amount of hair I lose in the shower is scary! So I went to Boots and made use of there current 3 for 2 haircare promotion getting two Naked shampoos and also a conditioner as I have never tried any of there normal conditioners before.
And ofcourse I did abit of online shopping in the Asos sale, I picked up 2 Models Own nail polishes - Green Tea and 25 Carat Gold and also a Asos Ciate nail paint in Olivia.
I think I was very restrained really, however I'm sure next month will be another story with moving house and buying a nice new Canon Ixus camera!
Does shopping help with your life stresses?
