I Went Shopping

Good Evening Lovely People,


The Saturday before last, I went shopping with the beautiful Michaela and I spent a lot of money on stuff I don't need and had no money for. I am a self confessed shopaholic so I really can't help myself.




We went to Bicester Village for the day and it was thoroughly enjoyable. If you ever plan on going, go early so you can leave early. Myself and Michaela realised very quickly that we would not need to spend the whole day there but the train tickets I booked only allowed us on the train at a particular time.

Any way, it was a fun day filled with shopping, many laughs, amazing food and both of us being extremely tired by the end of it. I still think now that I haven't fully recovered.
Our intention was to find a bag for Michaela but I love shopping so I had a few items on my wish list too. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and the Village is really easy to navigate. It was very quaint and cute.

Here is what I bought! Sorry it has taken so long Hollie!!




Anya Hindmarch

 I blame Michaela for this purchase but the patches in this shop are great and I couldn't resist buying one.


Kate Spade

I originally picked up a pouch but then I saw this T-Shirt and searched frantically through the pile to find the biggest size... And there it was and XL glittering in my eyes!! AAAnnnnddddd, it fits as well!!



Pandora

I don't know what it is about Pandora but everyone I go to there is always a queue outside. I was waiting in the queue for about an hour, probably a bit longer. I managed to pick up four charms. I believe some of these are still on the Pandora website. I'm not gonna link the because I can't be arsed.





Cath Kidston

This is where I went completely crazy. There were so many bargains to be had! I have always loved the robot pattern and there were sooo many things with it on. I finally managed to pick up an overnight bag and some other bits an pieces. I have no idea why I bought spoons. Don't judge, I was buying on impulse.




L'Occitane

This was the last shop I went to, I have never used any of the products before so I was looking for something to try. The I saw this £12 bargain and had to have it. It's four handbag size perfumes. They all smell amazing and I think I will do some reviews on them too.



Thanks for reading!

Much Love,

Abi

Bore off!

Hello Wonderful People,

Today I come to you with a post that is very different for me.

I have been thinking about writing a blog post for a while now and I have been putting it off because I lack the motivation, time and patience.

To get my mojo back I started looking through my blog content and to be honest, I have changed so much as a person over the last year or so and I cannot really relate to the girl in my older posts.

So, today I have decided to say more about what I am thinking rather than what I think people would like me to say.

Here it goes,

I am taking a stand and I am saying BORE OFF!

BORE OFF! To the boys that used to chase me round the play ground calling me 'Kong Kong' and 'Big Foot'.

BORE OFF! To the little boy in the playground that told me I was a fat bitch when I was at my most insecure.

BORE OFF! To every 'friend' that ever said that they 'think they are fat' or 'feel fat', whenever we went out shopping together.

BORE OFF! To cold shoulders, butterfly prints, batwings, dress tents and body shaping underwear.

BORE OFF! To clothes that have my size written in them but aren't actually my size.

BORE OFF! To what people say is or isn't flattering on my fat body.

BORE OFF! To when I went shopping when I was younger and all I could buy was accessories and men's clothes because nothing else fit me.

BORE OFF! To the people who tell me I'm not fat when I clearly am.

BORE OFF! To the same people who say you're not fat but you're pretty or beautiful.

BORE OFF! To every advert about weight loss or getting that 'bikini body'.

BORE OFF! To every job I have been turned down from because of my name, size, skin colour and the fact that I am a woman.

BORE OFF! To the man that thought it was okay to insult me because I turned him down on a dating website.

BORE OFF! To my doctor, who tells me every time I go for an appointment that I am extremely overweight.

BORE OFF! To all the plus size brands who don't actually cater for plus size women.

BORE OFF! To anyone that has ever tried to put me down because of my size.

BORE OFF! To any plus size campaign that left plus sizes out.

BORE OFF! To size exclusion.

BORE OFF! To anyone that ever told me that my body can't wear this or shouldn't wear that.

BORE OFF! To dieting.

BORE OFF! To anyone that has ever told me to loose weight.


Is there anything that you want to say BORE OFF to?

I am trying to take my blog in a new direction that is more honest and open about me to the people that read it.

Good day to you,

Abi xx

After taking a short break from blogging I have decided to come back and make some realistic goals for myself this year!
I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and have been enjoying the new year so far.

I just thought I would check in and say Hi to you all.
