Look at that gorgeous light streaming through and lighting up my pic. It was all lovely and sunshiny when I took that picture. Sunshine aka good light is wonderful for banishing wrinkles and under eye bags ..... in photos. If I could bottle that formula for real life wrinkles and eye bags - I would be stinking filthy rich!
Lovely lovely sunshine!
Anyway, have you noticed something? New bag!
I was in London last weekend for my annual bloggy meet and on the Sunday when I had some time to kill before I caught my train home, I thought I'd have a little mooch around the shops. So I came out of the Bond St tube station and there before me like a mystical apparition (missing a few angels and trumpets though) was a big Forever21 store. Happy clappy!
You see, I don't have a Forever21 store near me and I love looking in places like this to see if they have any gems. Last time I was in a store, I found my best ever grey tee and it was only £3. And it doesn't pill like the uber expensive Splendid one I bought a couple of years back which I have demoted yet again, this time from nightware to charity bag.
I spent an hour in their accessories department playing with various bits and pieces and it wasn't till the end when I came across this solitary green rucksack. I liked it as it was a little different because of the colour and it's definately a whole lot more happening than my Mini Cooper ruck sack which I share with George which I got free when I had a Mini. I also think if you were looking at similar bags in Topshop - I think they would be asking double what they ask for it in Forever 21. It's finished well too - the stitching is straight, the zips are done neatly and everything is as it should be. You know me - picky picky :)
And do you know what else? I didn't stash it away or wait a while before I started using it - I used it the day after I bought it and that almost never happens! Wonders will never cease!
