Last post!

Hm well I read this and it really put me off my self indulgence ramblings.....

Old Janet has got a point, however I realise there is a great community of people all around the world who share info and spur you on. I enjoyed undertaking the blog venture and it has really helped me to sort out my priorities and finances. I can't recommend Make Do & Mend - how to buy a designer handbag etc enough. It is a great little number.

One final world- Janet Street Porter you are such a f*****g opinionated git but fair play a bit too accurate too.

love to all out there x

Day 38 endeavours

I realise my blog is hardly the most inspiring of subject matters and it is also one that is self inflicted - my troubles that is....
However, I am hard pressed to explain what is essentially a love of clothes. I am as passionate about clothes - a wide and varied selection in the same way someone loves a football team.

I don't support just one shop or one designer - more an overwhelming desire to visually display styles and looks.
I realise this is pointless if you don't have the funds or don't work within a budget. I am giving up purchasing designer items and sticking to the high street. I did look at Primark & Peacocks given the prices but my heart is ready to go to the conference league yet.....

On a plus note I've redistributed my funds to stem the interest charges on my credit card. This is sure going to help with reducing the debt and also as I cut it up I'm not spending on credit. Things are looking up however hard the struggle!!!

Will I see the sunshine again on my there an end to making my sandwiches for work?

Day 37 how to survive

As the stock piles into stores, as I walk by of a morn on the way to work, so the resolve crumbles.
I am really really struggling.

Day 36 Fashion forward

Ok ok so I have succombed and had a peek in the shops. It was as I feared - all new and inviting.

I had voices in my head - buy me buy me.......

But I was good and walked away. I didn't moan when I got back to work after lunch instead I struck up a conversation about Ross Kemp!

How will I avoid the temptation?

Day 35 new obsession revealed

Basically I've become obssesed by Ross Kemp in Afghanistan. It is my fav programme of the year to date.

I sort of get mixed emotions on it all but am completely riverted. It stops me being a fash pash airhead and puts everything in context. Last night was quite gruesome, when a soldier died, and his mother gave permission for the clip to be shown. She was so heart broken.
Google the programme and you can view great clips.

Day 34 robbing Peter...

I have a dilemma. Do I pay off more on my card and have a bigger overdraft but end up paying less interest?

It will mean my credit card debt goes down quicker and I won't be able to go very mad with an overdraft so it wull only be once I can do this...
Agh decisions.

Day 33 thank you

Yes, yes, yes - the cheapies are doing it good. Primark, George at Asda - how my purse springs lept for joy. With a a budget of £60 I shall be able to inject some new dresses etc. Today's Sunday Times Style magazine has given me hope.

The £12 canvas bag from Peacocks is mine!

Will I beat you to the tills at Asda??

Day 33 relaxing

Clearly you will want to know about the hot date but that would be telling. This blog is about my redemption from fashion not a recovery from Russell Brand type sex addiction!

Two glasses of wine were all I had......

Luckily today's High Street fashion page number in the Guardian's weekend magazine is the pits - it actually put me off clothes. Mind you the measure is funny with their Coleen v Kate mention not to mention Kelly & Kate.

Also the Fashion bloogy awards are upon us and if you want to vote here is the link,

Do smiley faces last?

Day 32 new month new look

Well actually same old look clotheswise but a new frame of mind. How happy am I that February is a short month, more money to pay debt back if I stick to budget.

Tonight I have a hot date and am mentally thinking what look to achieve and how to put it together. Also I've mentioned lack of funds as I don't want to stretch myself or be a money grabber even if he is paying. I've suggested an easy bar for an earlyish drink and set myself a time limit. I'm filled with resolve and strictness that is very pleasing to the wallet if not to the eye.

At least I can slink out early on a Friday from my desk....

Will I stick to my guns?
Plus does any blogger out there know why my spell check isn't working? Help please.....
